    I get 3-4 hours with 4 hours being generous. The only cologne in my collection with poorer longevity than MI is 4711 which lasts 1 hour on the dot, which is ok b/c it was $10. That is approximately $10 an hour for longevity, whereas MI ($150) for me is approximately $37.50 per hour of longevity. On the opposite end of the spectrum, Lapidus ($20) is about $1.60 per hour (12 hours) of longevity.

    The point I'm trying to make is that MI is overpriced and doesn't last worth shyte. It does smell absolutely heavenly though.

    3-4 hours is pretty much max. I think Jack is the exception with this one. Terrible longevity but one one of the best aquatics while it lasts.

    Hold onto it for 5 years. It'll get better the longer you have it, and add a good thirty minutes per year off skin.

    If you'd asked me in the first two weeks after I bought MI, I'd have sworn that it didn't last an hour-- and that was during the time I was refreshing every 15 minutes with multiple blasts. Paradoxically I found out later--once I started spraying less than three times on the chest and then not refreshing-- that it was hanging around easily for 12-24 hours.

    Olfactory fatigue gets a lot of people with this one-- and several other Creeds too. This morning I put on one spray of Windsor to the chest and one small dab on my wrists and I've been radiating this wonderful stuff for over 12 hours and it's still going strong.

    I dont regret buying it at all. Indie Guy is right - olfactory fatigue is very common with this one, as well as with Aventus.

    I have lot number A3310K02 as well and mine only lasts 4 hours max. Is there a batch discrepancy within the same batch???

    at this point, with the above question having now been asked... I hope we have reached the breaking point, and the collective obsessive delusion with alleged "batch variations" will recede.

    2-4 hours on my skin in the summer season.

    I'm sure those who get 6+ hours are spraying it on their clothes.

  33. #33

    Default Re: Millésime Impérial Longevity Poll

    I get 6 hours with 4 or 5 sprays of MI, which is OK. Aventus - more like 8 hours (with 3 or 4 sprays).

  34. #34

    Default Re: Millésime Impérial Longevity Poll

    9 hours average, about 4-5 sprays, none on clothing, have the 2008 batch and 2009 bach they both last on me

    Default Re: Millésime Impérial Longevity Poll

    I get 6-8 hours but other people have told me that they could still smell it on me even in the 10-12 hour range.
