    Default Just got Cigar Aficionado's only release, I swear, this has only been on my skin for 30 minutes and

    it smells like Creed's M.I. !!

    I looked up the reviews here on Bnotes and nobody mentions the simiarities, maybe it's just me.


    I like it though. Also got Mont Blanc's Presence........Nice!......so far.....30 minutes in.

    My curiosity is peaked.

    It's definitely just you. Never tried MI on my skin, but I've smelled it.. You must have gotten a bad version of MI..

    I find it to be utterly deplorable. A foul chemical stench that is linear and quasi-industrial. I have less than twelve bucks in a bottle of the stink and a bottle of the aftershave and I definitely wasted my money. I have noted, however, that there doesn't seem to be any grey area -- people adore it or want to use it to clear drains.

    All that aside, I may wear it a few more times in the privacy of my own home.

    I'm surprised how much hate this frag gets here. I think it's great! It's like the dark, brooding brother of Davidoff Classic - boozy, pungent black cigar tobacco. If this had bigger sillage, I'd call it a powerhouse.

    But instead lets call it what it is, an outhouse.

    Yeah I found this at a local grocery store for like $3 and picked it up. It really is quite good. However, it reminds me more of Santos but not MI.

    That's a bold statement!

    I am going to have to give this a try again. Every other time, however, it really just reeked of some kind of institutional disinfectant to me. I can't describe what I smell, but it certainly isn't anything like you get. I need to wear it around a control group and see what they think. I really only get the odour of some kind of fake lemon cleaner, but dulled down with the aforementioned industrial funk. I can't really find the terminology to describe it. Dunno. Oddly enough, I do like the aftershave!

    It looses everything after 30 minutes on my skin.
    I have tried enough.

    IMO it's simply awful, and not at all like MI.

    In my never ending and usually dissappointing quest for a good tobacco fragrance, I gave this a try. Again, no great tobacco scent, but I still like it. A bit like Cuba Red, but with more of a vanilla note. The CA will not be in my regular rotation, but I would wear it in a pinch, and I would wear it every day of the week ahead of Creed MI.
