    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.

    In my opinion, both are great frags for you age group, since they are crisp and fresh

    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

    eh, im not a big fan of creed, especially GIT, but i would pick GIT/MI over those you listed =]. (Still waiting for Pure Malt and Angel Men to be booted from your list hehe) =]

    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!!

    Best Advice Ever. Yes, it is too expensive for a kid to be breaking his pocket. Save the money.

    Get Love and Luck, you don't need to waste your money on Creeds or anything like that. You're lucky if you get 6 hours with MI, and GIT smells like Cool Water to "normal" people.

    As a teenager I'd really just pick up either Cool Water or Hugo.
    Very cheap, and all the teenage girls go crazy for it.

    Might I suggest saving a few hundos and just buy Bulgari Aqua? It's a gorgeous scent that gets heavily discounted. I wore GIT for a good month and never did it receive any attention.

    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.

    GIT unless you leave near Miami and its hot all the time then MI. I am new to Basenotes and got a bottle of GIT and I love it. I get the Cool Water vibe for about 15 seconds then after that hold on to your hall pass cause your going for a ride.

    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.
