    Default Tried Creed MI today at Neiman

    I have GIT and think it's awesome--smells natural, green, and dark--almost as if it has an extra dimension that department store smells don't have.

    But MI--smells nice, I guess. Fresh, light. But that was two hours ago when I sprayed it on. Now it's gone.


    Am I missing something?

    It lasts much longer on me than two hours.

    It doesn't have much longevity but lasts much more than 2hrs on me, around 4-5hrs at least.

    It took around a month of wearing MI a few hours before bed most nights before I really started to appreciate how nice it is.

    It's nice, but after hearing so much praise about it online, I was a bit disappointed after trying it for the first time. I bought a bunch of sample vials and after quite a few wearings, I can say that the longevity is pretty horrendous. I get about 3 to 5 hours.

    I even sprayed it on clothing, but that didn't seem to help much. I'm wondering if I were to get a full bottle if the longevity would be any different, especially with the nice sprayers and difference in batch.

    I usually get 4 to 6 hours out of it here in Florida. Really does well in warm to hot weather.

    I never smelled it. What do you think of Unforgivable too? People say they share the same vibe...
    Does Unforgivable have more longevity and projection?

    I get eight to nine hours from it and I love the stuff. Creed frags do though suffer from batch variations so it can be pot luck in what you get longevity wise.

    Unforgivable in my opinion smells like rotten fruit. Love and Luck by Ed Hardy is about the closest vibe I get to Millesime Imperial and is a rather nice and inexpensive fragrance. Still though MI is superior in smell and quality to any of the knockoffs.

    Took me a while to really understand MI as well. I think its incredible now though. I agree with silentrich, works incredible in the hot humid weather of good ole FL.

    MI comes and goes on me, but the opening and early drydown is really where it sparkles.

    With MI, I kind of "lose" it on my wrists after about four hours (2011-batch - accepted as pretty good) but my girlfriend can detect it on my neck long after those four hours are gone, leading me to believe I'm being hit by olfactory fatigue. It could be because I really love the frag, and smell myself ALL the time. Truth be told tho, I do that with all my Creeds. I'm such a fan :/ Hehe.

    Anyways, I'd say four hours lasting-time on me in cold weather with semi-dry skin. Can only improve then

    1. Creed Green Irish Tweed
    2. Tom Ford Neroli Portofino
    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte

    It's one of Creed's "olfactory fatigue scents."

    Nice enough, but not my thing. I got two detectable hours out of it, but I'm sure others could smell it on me for longer than that.
