Thread: Millesime imperial perfect batch
I'm hating mine, namely A3311N02
Kurt smells like Teen Spirit
I bought it in Saigon. Now, don't mention the logical conclusion: I'm pretty sure it's authentic :-)
Kurt smells like Teen Spirit
This is what I get from a perfect batch of Millesime Imperial:
" After spraying you get a intense lush melon note with a light sea salt note which gives the experience of smelling a lush melon riding the sea breeze. It's like you are upon a yacht sailing the pale blue seas of the mediterranean whilst eating a fresh ripe melon with the sea breeze caressing you.
As many hours go by these notes fade though still noticeable just not as lush and the feeling is like walking a beach in the evening and smelling a light melon fragrance upon the evening breeze."
And the whole fragrance experience should last eight to nine hours. And this is what I get from a perfect batch. It just sucks that Creed cannot be consistent with the fragrance as every batch should be like this.
Ya. You may want to take that back if u can lol. I'm with Heperd and Jack on this one plus I really enjoy the '11 batch so may want to check
I just received my 4oz MI from fragrancenet and it is also A3311U01. It was a blind buy though, so I can't say that it's better or worse than other batches.
Just bought a 4oz of both Millesime Imperial and Aventus... anyone know if they're all updated with 2011 batches there?
I bought a 4oz from Fragrancenet maybe a year ago with the batch# A3308F01. It seemed really weak but still smelled great.
Good to see that Fragrancenet has the 2011 batch now. Hopefully since it's 2012 now the weak 2010 batches won't be likely to come by anymore.
I had a really great tester I got off ebay. Oddly enough the lot number was ground out so i had to look extremely hard to see when it came from but it was that 06 batch.
I unfortunately traded that one since then and have a couple 1 ounce bottles of MI from 2010 i believe that don't quite live up to the magic the 2.5 oz tester had. After the first couple hours the two batches smell about the same but the 06 batch was amazing in that first couple hours out of the bottle. Where the 2010 batches get into the melon and fruitiness right away, the 06 batch had a bit more of a salty and airy smell that I would love to have back.
While the overall scent is the same theres just a certain life to that 06 batch that was great.
I ordered GIT and MI testers from fragrancenet... Do u think I'll get a 2011 batch?
So i received my MI and GIT today. I"ll start with the batch #s first:
MI - C3311N01
GIT - C3211P02
First of all, I've never smelt these before, so I blind bought testers so I could return them if I hated them.
MI - "wtf is that?!" is the first thing I said when I sprayed it... Smells like salt water on the opening. No melon at all. After a few mins, the salt water calms down, but is still very dominant in the smell. I KINDA smell a little melon, but not enough to smell good. So far, I hate it. Maybe it's the batch, or maybe that's how MI smells. But this is going back. I don't want to smell like salt water.
GIT - "whoah.... Hmmmm... Nice" we're my first thoughts of the opening. Very... Well... GREEN! After a few mins it calms down and becomes very very nice... Idk about longevity or projections, hopefully it's good.
Does anyone have these batches? If so, what do you think of them?
That batch of MI is the best ive smelled. Strong melon. Not fake sweet, but natural fresh watermelon. If you dont like that one then you will not like any other bottle of MI.
ok so I just sprayed it again on the same spot as before... and smelled it before it dried on my skin, definitely watermelon, then goes to sea salt when it dries... I then sniffed the other area I sprayed a few hours ago and it's blend of both... it's amazing how the smell drastically changes within minutes... I'm going to keep the testers for both fragrances, and cancel my 4oz bottles... who knows, if I ultimately end up hating it, it'll b on my swap/sell list!
Good idea! I see a lot of people spray on something then immediately say they hate it only to change their mind. You will be very happy with how they smell in spring/summer mixed w sweat and body heat. just makes you feel so clean.
Agreed. Creed continues to change over time that's what's amazing to me. I enjoy MI and as heperd said, wait till summer and it's hot and humid. It's magic will come out
You should try Original Vetiver, its like you are walking around in an Irish Spring commercial lol.
Lol. I love MI, GIT and Aventus with Aventus my favorite. I want to try Original Santal for some reason lol. If anyone has any let me know. I am wearing royal our right now. It's not bad.
Glad u like it man. It wears well and I really love the scent. Can't wait for summer!!
Just got my 2011 batch in from fragrancenet. Got that really nice melon note throughout and overall it lasted from 11am to about 9pm when I showered it off and I can still smell it a little on my wrist.
After reading this, I'm seeing that the 11-batches are pretty damn good. Glad to hear. I really want to add this fragrance to my Creed-collection.
Wonder if I can ask the stores to show me serial-numbers. Taking a trip to Rome saturday - bound to end up in a store carrying Creed there. I fear for my wallet. I want MI, Tabarome, SMW and OS :/
Just got a new bottle of MI from Frangrancenet.....A3311Z02 EVERYTHING looks and smells right, but I was a bit worry because in the MI box came a note written in what seems like arabic...but it's all good. Also got new bottles of Bleecker Street and New Haarlem
