    5. Which is better blind buy for me? MI

    Also, I don't find any resemblance between MI and Acqua di Gio.

    Sure there are batch variations with MI and longevity issues, but it's still a standout scent IMO and I would much prefer that over GV.

    The only possible issue is that I don't think 30 ml is enough if you're planning on having it as a signature scent. However, it'll at least give you a good test drive and if you like it, you can buy more once you use up the bottle.

    Strong, long-lasting top notes of a sweet melon note that sticks around for the entire time. Best of all, I get 8+ hours from it. It's AMAZING
    I have the U02 also from 2011. I also find it last till the end of the day and is very fruity right from the top through to the heart. I could easily get by with just this fragrance in the summer. Very inoffensive and easily my best Creed right now. All right, maybe along with Aventus

    As I don't like MI (I find it to be absolutely nothing special and way overpriced) I'd always go with the elegant (and safe) GV.

    I just cant understand why MI gets so much praise. I get the Watermelon accord Extremely Briefly and then it just smells musty ... not musky MUSTY!
    "Stings the nostrils, in a good way. Im going to be honest with you, that smells like pure gasoline."

    Current Top 5:
    5.) Santa Maria Novella Muschio
    4.) Dior Homme Intense ( Vintage )
    3.) Dior La Collection Privee Ambre Nuit
    2.) Creed Aventus
    1.) Xerjoff Ibitira

    There is a batch out there that smells VERY musty, not musky, smells as if it has gone bad. I know because I ended up with one of those bottles. The good juice does not smell like that.

    So be careful Deamer81, if you do plan on buying MI do some batch research first. There have been other threads on here about the musty MI and there are reviews on here that mention it as well.

    So I finally pulled trigger and blind bought Millesime Imperial (75 euros for 120ml tester bottle, 2013 batch) and IMO its way better than Grey Vetiver that I already tried couple times and didnt like much (I actually prefer Paul Smith Story which is similiar and also 3x cheaper). To me it smells like cross between Acqua Di Gio and GIT. Very natural smell, fresh, classy, masculine and almost impossible to overspray.

    I agree, dull is the exact word I was looking for with GV. MI is far superior.

    Congratulations for the purchase. Still, without wanting to contradict the prevailing opinion and while the chose purchase is undeniably rewarding and worthwhile, would still keep GV at least on a "maybe" list (possible further testing, possible future purchase to be considered etc.).

    1. Which one do you like more? Millesime Imperial
    2. Which is better office wear? Grey Vetiver
    3. Which is better for summer? Millesime Imperial reminds me of summer the most, GV is more versatile.
    4. Which is better for dates? Millesime Imperial; super safe, everybody loves this, unlikely to smell like something her Ex would wear.
    5. Which is better blind buy for me? Millesime Imperial, much more mass-appeal therefore greater likelihood you will enjoy it.

    As to the comparison to AdG, Millesime is a lush rich watermelon fragrance whereas AdG is a super streamlined, sophisticated citrus.

    Personally I prefer GV, although I'd class MI as the safer blind buy. Both are very good though.

    I love most of TF's outings but grey vetiver when finished won't be replaced much better Guerlain's one!
