    Welcome to basenotes, jwin! I have some experience w/ all these...here's what I think:

    L'eau D'Issey - is quickly becoming one of my favorites for summer! I'd classify it as citrus with a hint of floral & woods.

    Creed MI - I'd say is aquatic w/ a hint of melon. I'd love to wear this one, but unfortunately on my skin it vanishes within minutes, and what's left becomes very muted.

    Burberry Touch - light musk & tonka with a hint of violet at the top. I think this one is great for any season.

    Egoiste Platinum - smells good...but is a bit overdone IMHO. Hollister Drift and A&F Fierce both smell very similar to Egoiste Platinum, & many guys wear these two. It's a very strong scent & can become overbearing if you use to much at once. But if you're light on the trigger finger, it's a nice scent.

    Creed SMW - to me, it's a more refined version of CK one (which I love). There are notes of tea & currants, & to me this is definitely a summery scent. I really adore this one.

    Anyway, I hoped that helped a little!

    Thanks for the info. I just couldn't figure out what types of cologne Creed MI (lasts 1hr for me as well), and Burberry Touch were.

    If anyone has additional input please post.

    Thanks for the welcome. My roomate is a member as well.

    This will help me buy other scents that are either a) better than what i currently have, or b) totally different than what i currently have

    I love both Issey and Platinum as I have tested them again and again and I don't care if they are mainstream, I love them and that is why I bought them.

    Issey- Strong, fresh, floral and citrus.

    Platinum- strong, fresh, bright, bit sweet/peppery in the drydown, it's hard to explain.

    both provide excellent longevity and sillage

    You can get the answer to the classification of many scents at
    http://www.osmoz.com/encyclo/marques.asp
    (unfortunately, the site is a bit light classifying Creed scents).
