    71.50 isn't really super cheap, so it should be okay. Some years back I bought 125m bottles of GIT for A$83 each, and a few months back I bought 125 ml bottles of Tabarome Millisime for $68 each. All were genuine.

    Funny how this old thread of mine has popped back twice, and I've received e-mails about it too.

    I did eventually empty the fake Millime Imperial down the kitchen sink and sent the empty bottle to a Basenoter in Canada.
    Unfortunately, regardless of what detergent I used down the sink, that fake scent stank my kitchen out shockingly for the next two weeks.

    I did buy Original Santal and Erolfa from Ebay, at relatively expensive prices, and they were genuine.
    If the prices were very cheap, I'd be very suspicious too.

    It's a dice roll buying on eBay IMO. You could win or lose.

    I think the 30ml and the 75ml bottles are much more likely to be real than the common 120ml flask.

As I was opening the package, I was comparing it to the content of my new bottle of authentic Royal Water - and just marvelling at how good the copying had been done. The attention to detail was staggering. In fact, I was a bit worried that I may have actually gotten the real thing.

    Pulling the sprayer's top off reveals the same error as that in the picture in the GIT thread - namely that the white plastic nozzle does not go down into a white plastic base, but instead goes down to an area surrounded by metal from the top of the bottle.

    The scent smells like a gone-off version of a scent called Watt (that comes in a lightbulb shaped bottle).

    It would be hilarious if people actually sprayed themselves with this scent and thought it was the real MI. I don't understand why the counterfeiters didn't put something a bit better in, like 4711.

    Anyhow, as I said, other than for the scent itself and the error in the nozzle, this fake Creed really is something to behold.

    From whom have you purchased it from? I've always purchased my Creeds from a Creed retailer, never had a problem.

    L amora perfumeria.co.uk...Ive spoken to the owner extensively,I basically quizzed the guy to death,he assured me in his opinion it is genuine blah blah so i went for it..
    As i stated,it came today 7/06/11 and Wow!..ITS mindblowing!..i say this because ive been wearing it for 4 hrs plus and its going like the clappers!..Seems refined and stronger than my last bottle.It may be down to it being 3 yrs old..A3308F02 MADE 08.
    From previous threads ive heard it mentioned, that time may improve this scent and maybe it has, because i cant recall my newer bottle of imperial ever smelling this strong and lush for so long...Either way i split it,,its the same if not better than any imperial ive brought b4 and for 71.50 including postage..And its 100% genuine...Gorgeous!.

    How can they sell it this low!?...I havent got a clue!,we could muse endlessly but im not going dwn the Creed raBBit hole of paranioa...Im gd to go with this scent and feel a breath of fresh air that i wasnt ripped off...I would recommend this retailer(but always make a call and chat before u order anywhere)..

    Just bought a 2.5 oz bottle for $106.00 at ScentedMonkey.com. Keeping my fingers crossed. I did notice on the electronic invoice it has the number 2010.

    This is an old thread, and Sara's Shop on Ebay disappeared a while after I posted this.

    Congratulations, I can see that you are happy.
    The best thing about Creeds, is that one can then participate in debates about them here.
    I remember canning MI here about 7 years ago because the spray I got from a legit retailer just didn't last more than two hours on my wrist. But when again tested it two years ago, it lasted 7 or 8 hours.
