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!
Everyone is somebody's weirdo.
Whichever one YOU like the most and want to wear.

Millesime Imperial +1.
Whichever one you feel fits you best.
SEEKING BOTTLES OF:
Aramis New West (preferably old bottle)
Patrick by Fragrances of Ireland
Gloria by Cacharel
PM me if you have bottles that you're willing to sell or trade!
Neither. You'll offend all the kids in class. Wear something more mainstream until you get to college. This is a command.
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.
Just go to TJ Maxx or Marshall's and buy Love & Luck by Ed Hardy (it's very similar to Millesime Imperial), and save the rest of your money for college or your next date or something else.
Tough one. Go with MI
Whichever you like. MI would be a safe bet.
Is the juice worth the squeeze?
well, i happen to think Millesime Imperial is by far the most overrated fragrance. If it wasnt a Creed it would be more bashed then Bleu de Chanel
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!
Go with the one You like the best!!!
And welcome to Basenotes!!!
But MI more so.

Either one would be absolutely fine.
I'd say go with GIT. But like everyone else has been saying, there are more quality options for a lesser price.
Flip a coin and then live it up! You can't go wrong if you like each equally. The one you don't get now will come to you down the road.
That girl, that bottle, that mattress and me.
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
Welcome to basenotes.
Wear whatever you like the best. MI has 2-3 hours longevity, smell is great but definitely not worth the cash.
Great works are performed, not by strength, but by perseverance.
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 $20 cool water? If yes, then get the Creed. Who cares what anybody else thinks! It makes you more confident and girls like that in guys (who wants to date a wimp who lacks self-confidence?).
Do what makes you feel better about yourself, provided that it is respectful to others' living space (i.e. don't spray 15 sprays of MI or GIT or whatever you buy. It's rude). And don't expect that wearing anything YOU like will please OTHERS. You need to find common ground if you want to socialize with people while you wear fragrance.
Definitely GIT. MI is the most overrated fragrance of all time
What are you people talking about? First 20 minutes is watermelon, and then metallic musk. That's it. Just don't get it...
And the best thing is it cost's 250$! What!? Well Creed, you won' t get my money for sure
M-I, but both are perfect.
I would get something else.
I find GIT reminds me far too much of Cool Water and that ruins it for me. There is more going on besides that but Cool Water has stole it's guts.
