    Just curious.
    I've had multiple MI sample vials for quite a while. The longevity stayed the same. I get around 4 hours. IMO, MI is the Creed with the worst longevity.

    I understand and agree with you. I have been fortunate in that I haven't wound up with anything from 2010. I think that I would be extremely disappointed/angry if I had spent good money on what I know is a quality bottle of wine only to find later that it is nothing but sediment & vinegar (ok bad analogy). What a drag.

    MI is a tricky one. After a few hours I really can't detect much of it, but my girlfriend confirms it's pretty much "there" after at least six hours. It's not strong, do mind, but it's still there. Seems to be olfactory fatigue on my part, but I'm happy to report that it still smells good long after I think it's gone.

    Get someone to smell you after you've lost trace of it yourself - I can almost guarantee you it's still there.

    Yes it's still there on my skin after I lose sense of the smell. My girlfriend and others have confirmed this as well. It's not a projection monster by any means, bit people will definitely be able to detect it.

Contrast that with a 2011 batch that smelled fantastic from the first day I bought it. The two batches were like night and day. Since Creed uses natural ingredients I have become inclined to believe it depends on the quality of the harvest. I love creed and it seems to me their batches have been more "consistent" over the last year..hopefully the trend will continue.

    All fragrances change over time; the change is quite rapid at first, usually before it is shipped for sale, then tends to slow down unless the bottle is exposed to light or excessive heat. But they all change (see thread mentioned above for a professional perfumer saying this...)

    Also, almost all fragrances, including Creed, are mostly synthetic these days for a variety of reasons (cost is a fairly minor factor; more importantly, many traditional naturals are either unavailable or banned). The whole history of modern fragrance, as has often been pointed out here and elsewhere, is founded on synthetics that were not available before the 19th century. GIT is, in fact, mostly based on and inspired by modern, lab-created ingredients. Creed does use more naturals than some houses and buys higher-quality ingredients, so some variation in sourcing could affect the smell.

    I to have that batch#a3311U02 and it has a melon note to it...I sprayed five spray on my shirt just to test its projection and I must say very good. Also this batch has a slight green tint to it, which is darker than my other MI juice! I could smell this juice in my closet four four days straight! The first two days was fairly loud! I bought two bottles. I'm very happy with this batch...

    I find that the stronger batches of MI do have darker juice, my A3311N01 batch has a strong melon note as well. Some of the 11x02 batches are clear juice and smell mostly of salt.

    I agree! The darker the juice the better the melon note as well as longevity...
