    Default My 6 sample vials of Creed Millésime Impérial smells stale

    I bought a sample vial bottle before of Creed Millieseime Imperial before and it smells great! I just bought another 6 sample vials and it smells terrible. It just has a stale over due smell to it. Anyone know if this is due to being exposed to high heat? Light? or just old and expired?

    Probably light and heat, improper handling. Where did you order the samples from?

    Could be due to a number of causes - most likely light and heat.

    I've had the same problem with sample vials of MI. It seems to be a delicate fragrance, very prone to going bad. I'd email the seller tell them the problem and see what they offer to do about it. Remember your ability to give negative feedback gives you a bit of leverage in the situation.

    I don't know about "going bad" but there's definitely some batch variation. The samples I used before my FB purchase lacked the watermelon note almost completely (but I still loved it). I was surprised when I smelled the FB.
