    Virgin island water will last until you wash it off... as a skin scent. People from the Dominican would recognize the drydown, a sweet sugar cane/ambergris that lasts 10+. The top notes are gone in about 2 hrs. With Millesime Imperial, mostly everything is gone in about 5-6 hrs

    MI for me. I like eating coconut, but VW doesn't last on my skin.

    Well i just actually tried a bottle of MI that i ordered and received yesterday, and while it does smell good, it lasted a very short time. I sprayed about 4 times and by the time i arrived to my destination last night (45 min) it smelled virtually gone. Didn't get any head turns with it, so YMMV imo.

    MI by miles. VIW is a waste for me. I can't hardly detect it after a few minutes.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    Unfortunately both project very little and neither lasts long on my skin at all; maybe an hour tops.
    My current top 10 (subject to change) in no particular order:

    Rive Gauche Pour Homme, Serge Lutens Cuir Mauresque, Armani Prive' Nuances,
    Armani Prive' Bois d'Encens, Ermenegildo Zegna Indonesian Oud, Essenza de Zegna, Amouage Beloved Man, Fahrenheit Le Parfum, Dior La Collection Couturier Vetiver, and Rasikh Syed Junaid Alam.

    VIW lasts 8-10 hours on me and projects like crazy. MI not so good. Maybe lasts 5-6 hrs at best.

    Both MI and VIW aren´t references on this matter but I think MI is better.

    My MI sample lasts 2hrs max, but I get 10+ hours from my VIW. I lucked out with my VIW, because I had a bottle of nuclear strength!

    I would be interested in seeing a poll for this. It looks like MI is getting more votes.

    MI smells better... I've actually received negative feedback on VIW, and I don't like it. smells too much like suntan lotion

    If you don't mind me asking, what was the negative feedback?

    Usually when I spray my clothes with fragrances (without wearing them) it last weeks. I sprayed Millesime Imperial on a shirt a couple of days ago and now I can barely detect it.
