    Well personally I always interpreted Aventus as smokey pineapple, cause when I sniff it on me that's what I get in my personal proximity, though the pineapple part is very apparent in the beginning, and later on even I have trouble pinpointing exactly what it smells like, but it's smoky and nice and "green." Surprisingly when I've been complimented by others no one has really said pineapple or natural. As a matter of fact a few people have told me it's synthetic smelling which I kind of get (due to fruity smokiness aspect).

    People have trouble describing this scent (regular people not scent heads). One thing that I've noticed is uniform when people describe the smell as "green" on me. Now GIT people have told me flat out makes me smell like grass, and is not really well received by anyone around me, which subsequently has waned my liking for that frag. Aventus just gives off an apparent "beautiful smell, sort of green." However others interpret it, doesn't matter, just smells good. I'll definitely say it is a bigger hit with the older crowd, younger people (18-21) around me are not praising it nearly as much as the older folks I am around, though there are some young people that dig this on me.

    I don't even know why, but I always find myself rooting for GIT in these Creed "vs" polls. I just find myself saying in my head, "Come on ol' boy, you can do it! Just pull out one more victory!".

    Looks like Green Irish Tweed is leading by a fair margin..

    Interesting and informative to see what different people think of them.

    Keep it coming!

    Tried MI again, it just smelled kind of.. Funky this time.

    Same department store.

    Odd.

    Odd indeed. I always felt MI to be a little strange anyway. It has been described as an aquatic, but to me, it does not feel like an aquatic becauseo of the warm amber/ambergris base that a lot of Creeds have. Instead, it's a very beautiful, radiant floral fruit (which I believe is a combination of the citrus and iris to give an illusion of melon). For all the comparisons to aquatics (some reviewers, for example, hold Acqua di Gio as its closest clone), it is quite unique.

    I believe all three are wearable in Singapore (I own all three), and have received compliments on the MI and Aventus, even though I wear scents for myself and not to attract attention.

    GIT is my man but I voted MI because of the climate and uplifting qualities.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    After trying MI again, I probably won't be getting it..

    Aventus's heavy smoke put me off a little but there seems to be great variation between batches..

    GIT is classic, no doubt, does get confused by the masses as Cool Water.
    Aventus is great as well...Over talked about and over obsessed about.
    MI is no different than any other dept. store frag. It is a waste of money b/c you can find that scent at any discount counter

    I think they are the best 3 Creed frags!
    But out of them I hardly pick MI.

    That is funny...I own a sample and every time I try it yet again, It is so forgettable. It smells like the most generic dept. store frag. My mother sold Avon and I swear they sold an aftershave for $9 that smelled EXACTLY like MI

    I absolutely love GIT so I voted for it--best fragrance ever. However, I do like and own Aventus, which is a great one, but I don't think I'll purchase it again.

    These just happen to be the 3 Creeds that I sampled (with my wife along) one day at a Neiman Marcus. We were underwhelmed by all. Sorry, Creed lovers.

    While I have all three and Aventus is probably the one I reach for the most, the one that would differ most from what you already have is Green Irish Tweed. Plus, I don't think I could vote for anything other than GIT on St. Patrick's Day.

    Don't apologize to us, it's certainly not our loss.

    No need to apologise for having an opinion

    I tried Silver Mountain Water today, and it may have been the best thing I've smelt so far.

    However, is it just me or does it seem to have longevity and projection issues..

    I own full bottles of all three...the MI is a generic mess. Waste of my money. GIT and Aventus are nice, without the longevity I wish they had.

    I recently got a bottle of Millesime Imperial from strawberrynet, and it smells a little different from what I sampled.. Opens with a quick blast of alcohol, and projects only for 3 hours.

    Is this right?

    I love MI, there was a batch I had back in 2004 that was unmatched. The sillage and longevity was amazing. It's still good today but not like it use to be. I am a fan of all three, but Aventus is my favorite.

    Maybe try it for a few more times. From what I have been reading about Creed, new bottles tend to smell a little off, and will settle down after a bit of time.

    The poor longevity is quite normal for Millésime Impérial, unfortunately.

    Creeds change from day to day so one day it will last 3 hours and the next day it will last 12 hours. Just keep wearing it and you will see. I cant smell most Creeds after about 2 minutes but MI usually lasts about 8 hrs on me.
