    Default Creed MI extreme and aventus Extreme

    I am browsing eBay and I happened to tumble on this guy who sells custom blends to create creed extreme scents!


    Look at this on eBay:

    I don't know what to say... other than that I'd like to sample it. (haha sample split, anyone??) I'm wearing Aventus currently and trying to imagine this dry-down with more pineapple. Curious. It'd be lovely if someone could post a full review, however I doubt anyone on these boards has tried it.

    you have videos and all of them says that are better much better than the original MI and AVENTUS.

    MI, is exactly the same, but more melon note, and last last last 10 hours easely.

    Aventus, is the same, but with a more leather note, and The pinneaple last until the end

    Creed should do a MI Extreme and a SMW Extreme. Aventus is one of the few Creeds that already has decent longevity/sillage.

    People credited often Surrati - Tom Oudh but instantly disregard a possibly improved MI, kinda weird. Personally I'd like to try them if they appear local.

    I recall having seen a couple of YT videos from guys who have purchased the scents. They claim to be excellent, long lasting, and a step above the original fragrance itself. I have never purchased one but who knows.

    Now there might be an idea for the Creeds themselves to de-Cree the production of extreme versions of their scents - if that can be done without too many petrochemicals added...

    I've tried samples of both of these. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!!! The top notes are nice but both have extremely cheap-smelling, white musk drydowns. Awful. I truly believe that the guys on youtube giving this mess great reviews are a)fragrance newbies or b)providing positive reviews for free product.

    I have gotten samples in a trade of all of these also and they are NOT good. Do not waste your money. 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.

    I get great longevity from Aventus, and MI isn't too shabby either. I can smell it on myself 10-12 hours later.

    SMW is a beast on me and sticks to clothes that have been anywhere near it. Something about the calone and blackcurrent notes that makes it hang around forever.

    Well, I don't care for MI & My Aventus is already a beast & I love it as is. I would never risk spending my money on something like this.

    They're extremely oily and will stain pretty much any kind of fabric. Save your money and buy a Kerosene fragrance.

    I have most of the blends Mel makes. All of the fragrances have a very high concentration of essential oils which makes them very oily. That also makes them very long lasting. As for MI and Aventus Extreme: MI Extreme smells entirely like watermelon flavored candy. It does smell very synthetic unlike the juicy natural watermelon note in MI. It doesn't have that sea salt note or much else going on besides the melon. It just smells like watermelon and it smells like that for 12+ hours. It's also a compliment getter though.. The Aventus blend smells entirely like pineapple. It's not quite the same pineapple as the real Aventus though. After a couple hours the smokiness comes out. It also lasts a very long time. I like his blends, but they are not better than the real fragrances they are based off of IMHO.

    I agree, the MI smells like watermelon jolly ranchers. He had one with OV that smelled like those pastel colored soft mints that people keep in a bowl on the living room table. Had absolutely nothing to do with the smell of original vetiver but it was a really nice scent.

    The MI Extreme is very, very oily, smells nice, and does last, but isn't that close to the original MI (but that thing blows as far as I am concerned, pathetic utility). Blue Magic or whatever it was called was supposed to mimic Virgin Island Water, and also I don't find to be really that close. The stuff smells nice, and definitely lasts longer than Creed, but that doesn't say much, considering Creed is notorious for failing on that regard.
