I recently had a chance to sample both Green Irish Tweed and Millesime Imperial. I seem to notice a common smell in both. Maybe it's just the natural oils, but it's like there is a paper money note in there. This would make sense, since Creed wants people to smell rich. What better way!
You should ask this question in the Women's section. Females are experts at sniffing out and identifying that particular note...
Dude, you are so money!
Archaeologists have recently dug up a heretofore unseen Creed press release, believed to have been distributed throughout China circa the mid-fourteenth century by horseback.
A laborious and painstaking translation has proven what some of us have always known, instinctively, to be true:
"Creed utilizes a tincture of the finest ancient Chinese paper cash notes from the personal reserve of Zhu Yuanzhang, founder and first Emperor of the Ming Dynasty. An elaborate infusion method that involves soaking the cash notes in alcohol fermented from carefully preserved fruits picked almost two thousand years earlier from the Hanging Gardens of Babylon during the vernal equinox allows a flawless extraction of not only the essence of money, but the very skin oils of the Emperor himself."

In a world where people smell bad, it is the personal responsibility of every Basenoter to improve the world one SotD at a time...
Some people get a rather metallic smell from SMW. So you could claim it smells a bit like change.
Creed's newest creation-in-progress: C-Note
These things cannot be long hidden: the Sun, the Moon, the Truth--Buddha
In a white cloak with blood-red lining, with the shuffling gait of a
cavalryman, early in the morning of the fourteenth day of the spring month
of Nisan, there came out to the covered colonnade between the two wings of
the palace of Herod the Great' the procurator of Judea, Pontius Pilate.
More than anything in the world the procurator hated the smell of rose
oil, and now everything foreboded a bad day, because this smell had been
pursuing the procurator since dawn.
It seemed to the procurator that a rosy smell exuded from the cypresses
and palms in the garden, that the smell of leather trappings and sweat from
the convoy was mingled with the cursed rosy flux.
I've seen others reference MI as having a "money" smell as well as Wall Street by Bond No. 9.
I find it a bit ironic that Creed states that they want people to smell like money when they deliberately take a lot of what other people have -money-wise- into their own hands..
in response of the note per se ...i think it's Decyl Methyl Ether...even if Creed reps say they only use "natural ingredients"
double posted, wish there was a way to delete posts. :-\

Certainly not most Creed fragrances. MI (and perhaps a bit of SMW) have a similarity to money which has spent time in several fine leather wallets/purses and has picked up some of the notes of a woman's perfume. It isn't a pure, straight-off-the-printer, ink accord. If at all, it's in small amounts.
Herrera for Men has a similar effect, in my opinion. Goes better with a tuxedo than Aqua di Gio, in my opinion.
Often, noted with Creeds is their signature ambergris-musk dry down.
