    Default need something in between Millesime Imperial and Unforgivable

    I am looking for something that in in between Creed Millesime Imperial and Sean John Unforgivable?

    I really like Creed Millesime Imperial but a little to pricey for me and I tried Sean John Unforgivable today and
    it was to pungent, even with a little spritz.

    Any suggestions?

    You're not going to find it.

    Just buy MI! I promise you won't regret it!

    On second thought, that Unforgivable "Multi-Platinum" is supposed to be a bit more reasonable than "regular" Unforgivable.

    I second the need to save up and get MI....it is a fantastic scent.

    Kenneth Cole Reaction has always reminded me of Millesime Imperial with its watermelon note. It's a bit lighter than Unforgivable too so it won't overpower. However, if you really like MI then I agree with the others and recommend you save up for it. You're going to end up spending a lot of money on this hobby anyways if you get hooked.

    Unforgivable Multi-Platinum has less of that "dried up sticky orange soda stain" than regular unforgivable.
    Multi-Platinum mixed with a small amount of "Roots for him" is the closest IMHO you can come to fresh MI.
    Also, MI varies from bottle to bottle IME, and it seems the melon/aquatics gets cooked off before the citrus, so maybe an old bottle of MI, or a grey market MI that got roasted routing thru Dubai, might smell more like Sean John.
    But fresh MI is really much better.

    "Unjustified" By Classic Match. Should be about 5-10$ at your local K-Mart :P

    KC Reaction is a great suggestion as well. If you can go and sample some you might really enjoy it and find it suitable.

    UnJustifiable by Classic Match. Is $9 too pricey?

    (You may think I'm joking, but I'm not. This stuff is very, very similar to MI and it's not as pungent as Unforgivable.)

    I tried some Unjustified on Saturday for shits and giggles, and while it didn't smell half bad, it was gone quite quickly. I did only put a very small squirt on though, so maybe if you doused yourself in it, it would work.

    Yeah, actually, for $200, you could get about 20 bottles of Un, what's it called again?

    That should more than compensate for the lack of longevity.

    Something between MI and U?...I think that would be you....whether you go MI or Unforgivable. I was in the same spot before and I chose U not merely for its lesser price but the scent itself that works well on me. But I plan to buy an MI as soon as I empty off my U bottle.

    Save up for the MI. It's worth it. The beauty is in the fine details. It's so pure, radiant and multifaceted. Sometimes it feels like it's alive.

    Unforgivable is one dimensional junk. A cardboard cut-out.

    Pierre Cardin Black (which just came out last year and has been mentioned sparingly on this site) has similarities to both colognes you've mentioned.

    Three squirts on the chest on me lasts for a good 12 hours.

    UnJustified...? A rip-off of a rip-off hahaha! I need to own this.

    And yeah, Unforgivable Multi-Platinum would be "in between" Millesime Imperial and Unforgivable, in terms of scent and quality. Kenneth Cole Reaction would also be a viable alternative, if you're like 16

    Haha are you serious about Unjustified? Black Classic Match lasts a good while, I just wouldn't wear it that often. I'm using it as a room freshener. I may just buy a couple for a few bucks and put on the in the bathroom, my car, etc!
