    Default Green Irish Tweed or Millesime Imperial for Teenager?

    Hello Basenotes members, I just joined the Basenotes Community and find the forums and fragrance information very helpful.

    I'm 17 years old (high schooler) and would like to know which Creed would be most appropriate for my age. I've sampled both and love both of them but unfortunately, I can't invest in both. So of Green Irish Tweed and Millesime Imperial, which fragrance do you think would fit my age group more and would be enjoyed by girls of the same age range? Thanks!

    MI. Cool Water is a scent that could commonly be worn by their fathers and GIT is similar enough to CW that most people wont be able to tell the difference.

    Millesime Imperial (in my opinion) is a better fragrance. I think you could wear either one. Go with whichever one you like better. If I were you I would get Millesime Imperial.

    I agree. MI doesn't stand a chance against GIT's longevity. Get Love and Luck for a similar vibe (although LaL turns more into a GIT during the dry down with it's violet notes yet resembles MI in the opening).

    To me, love and luck is almost like a hybrid of the two. It doesn't have the greatest longevity, but for something like 15% of the price of a creed.....

    Up to you. TEST EXTENSIVELY and decide the pros and cons of each.

    Get the GIT and never look back. It is a classic, well-made juice for men and will set you miles apart from your male classmates and get you compliments beyond your imagination from the females. Having said that, I don't mean to knock MI, which is also very good, but I think the GIT will serve you better. Enjoy!

    I'd like to recommend you seek an alternative path.

    You ask which of GIT and MI is ideal for you and will be most appreciated by girls.

    Either of the above is a big investment. As a teenager who loved fragrances, I had no exposure to niche products, but very happily explored the designer world.

    Girls dont care whether a frag is niche, and Creed means crap to most.

    Go to a department store and sniff away. Teach yourself about fragrance by observing how they evolve on your skin, and keep reading here.

    Wear the fragrances you favor with confidence, learn to speak well and listen. Girls will like that fragrance the best as it will remind them of a smooth guy

    There is truth to that post but it isn't THE GREATEST, THE BEST, THE REVELATION post of basenotes, since it ignores other things. Don't expect to talk to girls smelling like Kouros and Jovan Musk and expect them to ONLY fall in love with your smooth talk and listening skills.

    People are easily turned on, turned off, or neutral about scents. What if they are allergic? What if it reminds them of a dirty old locker room? Their resentful step dad? Gives them a headache?

    Too many factors come into play.

    Who cares if it's Creed? YOU DO. Do girls? Maybe. Tell the chicks it's expensive. They like rich guys, or at least guys with some money to spend. Common sense. Would you date a guy who is charming, ect... yet wears $10 drug store cologne that reeks, wears old clothing, smells like mustard from lunch, dirty teeth, can't afford to take her out to lunch, doesn't have a car ect??? You'd be lucky.

    There's more than just personality and just any old scent to the complex social playground that high school and college is. Wear something YOU feel confident in and will show. Would you carry more confidence if you wear a $200 creed compared to a $20 cool water? If yes, then get the Creed. Who cares what anybody else thinks! It makes you more confident and girls like that in guys (who wants to date a wimp who lacks self-confidence?).

    Do what makes you feel better about yourself, provided that it is respectful to others' living space (i.e. don't spray 15 sprays of MI or GIT or whatever you buy. It's rude). And don't expect that wearing anything YOU like will please OTHERS. You need to find common ground if you want to socialize with people while you wear fragrance.

    As a teenager who owns both these creeds I can tell you MI if you want the girls to like it. If you just wanna smell good to you and be happy get whatever you want. This is only if it HAS to be one of these though.
    There are a lot of other great scents out there and creed costs a lot for an everyday wear unless you're a rich teenager lol.

    I just purchased MI 4 oz, it'll probably arrive next week. I'll have to see what the fuss is. I've tested it before and while it's nice, I still think it's not worth the hype. Since I'm not one to trust little vials for a full experience, I'll just get the full thing and try it out for a few days.

    I already know I LIKE it, but from what tested 3 times, I prefer GIT. Love and Luck also is close, but not identical (close for the opening, that's it). I'm also getting my love and luck tomorrow in the mail. If I end up regretting the MI purchase, I'll put it up in the Market Place on basenotes.

    I agree with MI. I think it's more girl-friendly, plus GIT is too similar to Cool Water for my tastes. I sort of agree with those who try to disuade you from picking one or the other up. How about this idea:

    Pick up Cool Water and Sean John Unforgivable (which is often cited as a MI rip-off) and pocket the rest of the money for a 3rd which you can rotate and experiment what the ladies like. One I've have heard cited as great for you age is A&F Fierce

    Millesime Imperial would be a near perfect fragrance had it not have longevity problems. It's one offhe most pleasant smelling fragrances I've encountered. Some don't have to be super complex or borderline offensive to be considered interesting or worth the price. Millesime Imperial is one of the most popular Creeds for a reason. It's overrated yes, but a fantastic fragrance nonetheless.

    If he's dead set on a fresher vibe, he may not like Aventus. Aventus is advertised as fruity, but I get mostly ashy/smoldering slightly rubbery plastic sweet.

    Hello!

    Let me first say that I'm not shy to say if an 80's scent is a little too old-school smelling. 80's is retro for me, so I'm not that much older Yet, GIT is something that smells timeless and I doubt it will smell dated even a couple of decades on. It is just one of those scents that people most ages can pull off easily and you wouldn't "smell like daddy or grandpops".

    Great that you enjoy GIT and MI. If you can only buy one for now, I'd go with the GIT because it versatile enough for formal and casual situations. MI is a little more casual, IMO, and wouldn't be my first choice for formal. I guess you decision will boil down to which one you want more immediately. Have fun!!

    My prediction:

    GIT will be appreciated by nearly all girls in your age range (it's VERY close to Cool Water) and loved by a few.
    MI will be LOVED by some girls but under-appreciated by many. Hint: apply some to shirt about 3 buttons down from the top.

    Mixed strategy: 1.) get a small decant of GIT or a bottle of Cool Water and LIE to the girls that it is Creed.

    AND

    2.) get MI. Be different. LIGHTLY apply.

    I purchased MI, VIW, GIT and Aventus in 4oz. directly from Creedbotique.com. I'm a 20 yr. old college student and most students don't have the money to be throwing out at niche fragrances. In HS, I wore Burberry Brit / Touch but if you NEED confidence from a niche in HS you really need to re-evaluate your self. I think the OP has heard of these fragrances being "panty droppers" or something that receives compliments left and right. The truth is, fragrance or no fragrance, pussy is pussy and in HS it's so EASY to get laid. You need a gym membership and something LOUD like Aqua di gio, teenager girls (I still fuck with 18-19 yr olds too) do not care for "expensive fragrances", they would much rather you spend 200+ on patron, a nice dinner etc. - you get the point. I date women who are in the 23-26 range and I don't depend on fragrances for confidence they just come with me like salt over food. I'm not trying to attack you - but make sure before you spend the money on the fragrance that the purchase is FOR you - not HER.

    Gorgeous as it might be, Bulgari Aqua has no similarity to GIT. Are you perhaps suggesting it as an alternative to MI? if so, I can understand that.

    Exactly. Dont get caught up in the hype on here and start wasting money that you dont have.
    If you are still "into" fragrances in a year, then start worrying about getting a Creed.
