    Default Re: Creed MI extreme and aventus Extreme

    MI and VIW are pretty damn near perfect already (assuming the right batch). Why tinker with their smells? I'm sure if I liked Aventus, I'd feel the same way about it as well.

    And longevity on them is just fine for me. If I still want to smell like MI or VIW after five or six hours, I just spray again.
    Current Top Five:

    1. Creed Green Irish Tweed
    2. Tom Ford Neroli Portofino
    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
    4. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
    5. Creed Original Vetiver

    What? Because he stated an opinion on a video medium rather than on BN? Give me a break.

There are fragrance oil companies all over the internet that make the same sort of product (bad oil versions of fragrances) for 1/5 the price that Mel charges. Just look at the facebook frag groups and see how many people are trying to resell this stuff after being suckered into buying a bottle by this guy and a couple of hype men. He is somehow able to continue to sell to new people because people on FB and youtube rarely tell the truth if they dont like something that is made by a member of the "fragrance community".
    Im sure i will get some hate for this opinion.

    Agree across the board. Bought MI Extreme- it was extremely oily and did not smell like MI and wasn't even close to being as good. I also had a sample of some others and didn't like them either. Go for the originals and don't bother with this stuff.
