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.
^ Please PM me if you do end up regretting it. My bottle has gone dry and I've been looking to replace it...
I smell better than you.
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
Btw you change your top ten list more times than Paris Hilton visits the clinic! lol
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!!
There's so much debate on this thread I sure hope Mr.* comes back and tells us what he chose and how he likes his choice.
That girl, that bottle, that mattress and me.
He's gonna come back with 10 Creeds :-P
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.
*cough* Check the basenotes market place for Love and Luck *cough*
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.
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.
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.
Get yourself some Cool Water or Unforgivable and save the rest for college. boom
Looking to buy: Terre d'Hermes 3.3 EDT! Lemme know!
Both are good, just pick one.
Five that I am enjoying right now
1) Sel de Vetiver by The Different Company
2) Spiritueuse Double Vanille by Guerlain
3) Bois des Iles by Chanel
4) Devin by Aramis
5) Coromandel by Chanel
Mr.* hasn't logged in for almost seven weeks. He's probably made his decision or decided not to make one.
That girl, that bottle, that mattress and me.
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.
The one You like best is the correct answer!!!
Just saw how old this dumb thread is.
