    MI is the one Creed I have tried that almost lives up to the hype. Having said that, it's a bit of a gamble in that there seems to be some real inconsistencies from one batch to another. "On" batches smell great, "off" batches lack top notes and seem to smell extra salt watery. I have not experienced this myself but I've heard of many people being put off by the bad batches. For MI's considerable price tag, this inconsistency is pretty outrageous if true. My initial suspicion was that the people complaining of these batches had bought fakes but I know of at least one person who bought off of FragranceNet (which I think is very reliable) and got a bottle from an off batch.

    + 1. Although I really like the smell, MI just isn't worth the price.
    My current top 10 (subject to change) in no particular order:

    Rive Gauche Pour Homme, Essenza de Zegna, Zegna Essenze Amber Gold, Armani Privé Sable Or, Armani Privé Vétiver Babylone, Mancera Cedrat Bois, Acqua di Giň Profumo, Amouage Dia Man, L'Artisan Explosions d’Emotions: Amour Nocturne, Zegna Essenze Italian Bergamot/Acqua di Bergamotto

    All smell great but im gonna go with allure gimme sport.

    Longest lasting and most sillage for me. I can't see myself spending all that money on the creed when it hardly lasts 4 hours on me

    MI smells good but seriously not unless you want to wear "niche" then Unforgivable is a cheaper alternative.

    AHS and BdC are good.

    Wearing AHS as SOTD from a sample, may be a possible buy, seems very fitting for summer.

    I have all 3 and whilst I like both the Chanels MI is far above them quality wise.
    Hard work never killed anyone, but why risk it?

    For me - MI murders the other two easily. I'd also suggest trying GIT and CW back to back - they're very different if you let 10 minutes pass.

    I own and enjoy Bleu De Chanel as well as Millesime Imperial, but there is no real contest there for me. I tend to use MI when it's warmer, Bleu when it's colder - but MI is miles ahead when it comes to quality - at least for me.

    I'd go with Bleu de Chanel. MI is the better overall smell but just doesnt have the staying power to jusitfy the price IMO. Bleu last a long time, its popular with the ladies and cost much less. Like someone else has said if you want the MI smell just get Unforgivable, to the average nose its almost exactly the same.

    I think you need to try MI.
    I wouldn't spend that amount of cash on it personally.
    I do think that Allure Homme Sport is the worst male scent Chanel have ever come up with so that would be out of the question for me. I don't think Bleu is wonderful either but I think it's a pretty decent scent that most would be quite happy with for the summer.

    MI is worshiped like a god around here, so I am in the minority, but It is kind of generic smelling, costs a fortune, and doesn't last 2 hrs so I would go with Chanel.

    AHS would get the honorable mention. Bleu De Chanel would be a Top 20 contender. MI is the champ.

    Millesime Imperial is one of the most pleasant smelling frags out there. Its sexy, sophisticated, and fresh.

    I got sick of hearing about all the comparisons with sean john. i bought a used bottle of unforgivable off of ebay for about $15. It smells like a rotten, sour version of MI. Not pleasant in the least.

    I much prefer Millesime Imperial to the others. Bleu De Chanel is too fruity, screechy and just annoys me. Allure Homme Sport just comes across as uninspired and umbitqotous to me.

    Go with GIT! Doesn't smell like cool water to my nose. MI is prob one of the only creeds I dislike can't stand that fake synthetic melon In it. Just try out frapin l'humaniste, my favorite summer scent!!!
