i bought millesime imperial from fragrancenet and i had no problem with it. it was really good an authentic. everything seemed to be as it should and the smell was great. the smell may vary because of the batches, which you probably already know. i was very happy with my purchase and i will buy another creed from there again when i find another i like. probably during the summer. fragrancenet is a good site and i order from there often. to me, fragrancenet is a great place to order fragrances from. hope i helped a little.
