    Sel Marin fantastic stuff, picked up a bottle recently for the warmer weather, and can't get over how good it is and I don't normally like aquatics.

    It's like the smell of sea spray when applied (with a bit of a seaweed whiff for realism [but in a good way]) and later in drydown it's like sun dried skin after a dip in the ocean.

    Never thought I'd be this effusive over an aquatic!

    Millesime Imperial and Hugh Parsons Blue are two standouts I really enjoy - relatively uninspiring genre overall though for me.

    My two overwhelming favorites are Creed Millesime Imperial and Heeley Sel Marin.

    And if you don't mind exceedingly liberal spraying, Creed's Erolfa is enjoyable.

    and



    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    Imperial Millesime.

    Can anyone tell me why we call it Millesime Imperial here on basenotes? On Creed's website it's clearly called "Imperial Millesime," not the other way around.
    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

    I'm seeing Millesime Imperial on the Creedboutique.com website. It's also Millesime Imperial on the front of the bottle. See the picture at the very top of this thread.
