    I Guess he's out with another cologne but I have to be honest, I tried Unforgiveable over this past winter on sample card and my wife loved it! lol...She asked what cologne it was and when I told her she couldn't believe it.

    Lets just say Puffy. P.Diddy, Diddy...whomever you want to call him isn't taken seriously in our everyday world in our house...lol...and usually celebrity colognes are a bust and laughable.

    I have to stand my ground on this one. I think the cologne is good! lol. I mean I am looking for a nighttime scent, dark, and sensual, but when you read up on when to wear it it states its an all the time fragrance? Granted yes, everybody will be wearing Sean Jean and it must suck if your a MI wearer.

    I went and tried all the Creeds last weekend and it's gourmet oily effect on the skin was indeed awesome and proved not to be cheap, but I wasn't moved by any of them at all. Weird, I figured I would like one out of all of them, perhaps I need to go back and try them again.

    Creeds IM when I tried it was unique but I dont really think that Unf. was identical? I like Unforgiveable...lol...I never thought I would admit that I actually am considering a purchase of Unforgiveable!!! I may get it. It isn't the pure quality of CREED but I just like the way it smells, now to me Unforgiveable can be worn by both sexes IMHO just like IM, whatever notes are in them, they are nice.

    Before I purchase the Diddy experiment..lol...I have these "Nighttime Sensual" samples to try coming in the mail: Michael Kors, Lucky No.6, Ungaro III, Xeryus Rouge, Romeo Gigli, Rive Gauche, Obsession Night, Gucci Pour Homme, Guess, and ofcourse....sorry...Unforgiveable.

    There was a mention of Eau Noir by Dior and I cant find it in sample form, but the word is this is the Mamma Jamma of nighttime scents?
    The search for the perfect cologne is like a composer searching for the ultimate note.

    P.S. F' Imus...Stern is King!

    Here's my update:

    Went to Lord and Taylor today specifically to compare the Unforgivable and Multi-Platinum. Sprayed both cards at the same time and smelled, then kept the cards to evaluate later (now).

    The original Unforgivable was notably spicier initially, while the Multi-Plat was a bit brighter and cleaner. Other than that, they were indistinguishable. Multi-Plat bears absolutely no resemblence to SMW for me.

    Now that the cards have dried down, the Multi-Plat has much better longevity, it seems. While the original Unf is almost gone, the Multi shines through, basically unevolved from the inital spray.

    And one more thing - Millesime Imperial and Unforgivable are quite different. So are Cool Water and GIT. Enough so that to claim that they are interchangable is an insult to the scents and their wearers. Cool water is GARBAGE compared to GIT. If you can't tell the difference, I'm sorry, but you're in the wrong hobby. I know that's a confrontational statement, but I'm really serious. The only comparison that could be made would be a very stale, dulled and evaporated bottle of GIT is in the same ballpark of Cool Water. I suspect that many people who find the two similar are comparing stale GIT to CW. Fresh GIT blossoms into an incredibly resolute, complex, fresh pallette while CW reminds me of a scratch-and-sniff sticker. I'm smelling them side by side as I type this and can't believe that some find them identical. Sorry, I don't mean to hate on CW wearers, but I've heard so many people try and degrade some of our favorite fragrances for some of the most stupid, unstudied reasons...Making ridiculous generalizations. The exact same thing can be said for the whole XS/Himalaya comparison, MI/UNF, Joop!/OS, and Mugler Cologne/OV. I've got to stick up for my scents.

    Windsor, Bois de Santal, Original Santal, Elixir, Douro, Endymion, Reflection, Arcus, Marwah

    Unforgivable smells similar to MI only in the topnotes - its the smell of pure bergamot. When they drydown, you can easily tell them apart. Unforgivable turns into a mess like a lot of inferior designer scents. It becomes blurry with distorted notes. MI on the skin has a distinct Creed smell that cannot be imitated.

    I don't know why people would avoid MI because of Unforgivable. They are not the same! Have any of you actually spray them on both wrists and compare them?

    If Unforgivable was a Paris Hilton perfume, that would've been embarrassing. Rumour has it that she has a new fragrance named "Jailhouse Rock".

    Paris can die a thousand painful deaths and rot in hell as far as I'm concerned.

    I saw these three absolutely snobbish bimbos walking through the mall yesterday. They were probably wearing fifty thousand dollars worth of clothing and jewelry each. The were the biggest walking cliches I've ever seen. As they walked by, I overheard one of them say "You mean WALK there?! Let's just take the limo!". They were so detatched from normal society that I looked at them as if they were freaks. I decided to follow them out of the store, from a distance behind, just to see if I could hear any more funny phrases. I'll tell you what - these women were the cattiest, most materialistic, ignorant, self-absorbed, undeserving, bitches I'd ever seen.

    But Paris Hilton still makes them look like normal people in relative comparison! Watching that Simple Life show made me want to vomit. I mean physically ill. I hope she gets curb-stomped and run over by a bus full of poor people. I want to spray her cologne in her eyes and light her head on fire, laughing like a super-villian.

    If you complain of snobbery, you shouldn't say that Cool Water is garbage. To tell you the truth, my CW gets more compliments than my GIT, it just doesn't last as long. And, to tell you the truth, I would like it more than GIT if it did have more staying power. Just my two cents in the end though. Always my opinion,

    As always, disregard most of what I say. It's not worth your heart health to actually worry about what a 23 year old guy from Kansas thinks. Even if he is really ridiculously good looking.

    I too find UMP to be similar to SMW. That's OK with me, I still get complimented like crazy on it. I don't like Unforgivable that much, nor do I like MI, so I guess that I'm done commenting in this thread.

    Same here ! I asked a SA at Macys if they had a tester of Egoiste over at the Chanel botiuqe that I could sample, the lady brought back Platinum Egoiste. and I was like "oh, no, i'm sorry I meant the origional Egoiste" and her exact words were "there is an Egoiste by Chanel before Platinum came out ?" I was like "umm, yes... nevermind" and I walked away lol

    I still could use some more suggestions on replacements for MI. I don't care what house.
    Bond No. 9 Wall St. Personally, I think Unforgivable has more in common with Wall St. than with MI. Very similar in marine notes.

    Mr Hulot's Holiday from CB I Hate Perfume.

    En Passant from Malle.

    Fougeres Marines by Montale.

    Also, check out the amazing recommends in the first few posts of the neroli thread:

    Hopefully, some others will chime in to answer you original inquiry, "Something unique to wear to parties and on nights out in the summer. ", and provide recommendations as well.

    Borky:

    I always preferred Erolfa to MI. It doesn't last half as long though.
    And not to dwell on Creeds so much, but Bois de Cedrat and Neroli Sauvage are good.

    I actually thought Unforgivable smelled the most like Bond No. 9's Little Italy (the one time I smelled UnF-able). So, try Little Italy...it's an EDP & lasts longer naturally.

    I also like Roma Uomo by Laura B. If you wanna save a buck. It's a much drier orange, though.

    I finally got to sample some Creeds yesterday, albeit under the pressure of annoying Neiman's associate. I tried SMW, Erolfa, and the new VIW.

    SMW I rejected almost immediately as it seems like just another incarnation of Himalaya. That typical Creed house note which I'm quite accoustomed to now. VIW was good, but maybe not for me in my climate. I feel like I should be wearing pastels and shorts, and sipping a Pina Colada with that. Erolfa, though was excellent and I plan on purchasing it soon.

I don't know if it neccessarily "goes off" or not, but it seemed to get a bit LESS refreshing over time. A bit darker somehow. Maybe MP is supposed to remedy this...that's what I'd guess. Then again, I might be wrong.
    I think, you are right. I remember smelling it at Sephora couple of months ago and it smelled like it had gone bad.There must be something wrong with the juice. That's probably why it started showing up at drug stores in spite of being #1 seller. And I liked it initially.
