    Taking into account of when it was introduced to the market, I think they did a very good job.

    IMO, even for todays standards it still trumps majority of the fresh scents out there.

    Of course now a days it's been ripped off and copied... but don't all great things usually end up this way?

    Saying Aventus 3x also works.

    Today I myself realized that batch variations are definitely true, and I mean experienced this fact by myself side by side!
    I bought a half-used Millesime Imperial bottle with batch A3310K01 and used it as my SOTD with 4 generous sprays, but all I got was about 3 hours longevity and very weak projection! As my wife didn't notice that I'm wearing it at all and when I asked her she sniffed my forearm and neck to admit I'm wearing Creed! And after 3 hours it was gone completely!
    But this evening I went to visit my friend and tested his 2009 batch on my other wrist, and after 4 hours it is projecting quite pleasing and is detectable!
    Now how would you interprete this other than batch variations????!!!

    I own 4 batches of Aventus:
    C42B11X02 (The so called best batch)
    A42B11N01
    A42B11Y01
    A42B10K04 (The so called worst batch)

    Wanna know something weird? They all smell identical to Aventus, no difference whatsoever.
    So what's your point, tinkerbell? http://www.facebook.com/pages/Xerbia/342075939166400

    Actually, back up to post #2809, where Xerbia says: "Guys we should do some massive trolling on basenotes."

    The "Burzan" guy is from the same BB.com thread. Funny thing is they really think that it's getting us mad. I could care less...I sniff out trolls pretty quickly and just don't feed them.

    Shows how smart they are...not even using different names coming on here. Doesn't matter anymore, anyway...he's banned now. What's also funny is how jacked these guys think they are. They're average...at best.

    It's 'cause they are "aware"

    I think this is a state that leads them to believe that they are in on some great joke that the rest of the world can't comprehend. I'm sure they waste much more time trying to troll one another.

    Great fragrances but sold with cynical lies and evil marketing - especially out of the us marketing project.
    Gold leaf my arse. Gold coloured plastic more like -I remember peeling it off a bottle years ago.
    Creed reps talk rubbish. Have done for years.
    People have lied for years about dates, ingredients, perfumers, etc.
    Great fragrances - but make sure you like them for the smell not the lies...
    MI contains citrus notes which are enhanced with synthetics like calone and others which add freshness and durability and which smell like watermelon to many people.
