    Default Fake millesime imperial sample??

    hey guys.
    I just got my MI sample in the mail and i dont know if its a fake. Is it possible for samples to be fake? I dont know what its sapposed to smell like since i never tried it before but i put some on and it smelles like.....metal/water. hah I cant explain it but then to say water that has been sitting around in a metal bowl or something. Then maybe 5 min. later i little sweetness came so it smells like sweet metal water. Is this how Imperial is sapposed to smell?

    my bottle seems to be real, ( feel that it was a little bit tempered) but yes, it smells like metallic water with a bit citrus on top and sweet muskiness in the base.

    Ehh.... it sounds to me like perhaps your sample has simply turned and you're getting the worst parts of the mix. Given the low surface area and clear glass, samples often spoil rather quickly if they were stored improperly. I doubt, though, that it's fake (what would be the point of making fake samples???)

    So, I'd definitely give MI another try before making up your mind. MI is really quite an exquisite scent... (and this coming from someone who doesn't claim to be a huge Creed fan)...

    ok, there are tea and water melon notes there also, to be accurate.

    You should get marine and "watermelon" notes - thats the defining accord of MI.

    I agree here, if you're not getting watermelon, I would say something is amiss.
