    Default Creed Aventus or Millesime Imperial?

    I'm pretty sure these kind of threads get old. But if you were trying to impress a girl which one would you wear? Help a brother out!

    Default Re: Creed Aventus or Millesime Imperial?

    Aventus is sexy. MI is nice, but lacks sex appeal.

  3. #3

    Default Re: Creed Aventus or Millesime Imperial?

    Neither. In fact, I'd wear nothing at all. No clothes, no nothing. Make sure to pee on her to mark your territory. Bare your teeth and growl every time another male comes nearby so everyone knows you're the alpha male. If that doesn't impress her, then I don't know what will.

    Can't go wrong with either. Aventus is a sure bet, but most women love MI as well. So, pick the one you like better and use it as a tool, not the plan.

    Of the two in question:

    On a hot day, I'd wear Millesime Imperial.
    Otherwise, I'd wear Aventus.

    Actually though, that's not true. I'd probably wear Hanae Mori HM. I own all three and I've gotten the best feedback from women when wearing HM.

    Default Re: Creed Aventus or Millesime Imperial?

    Aventus by far. MI is a little bit more of a classy scent. It also doesn't project very well. Aventus has that sweet pineapple note to draw the ladies in, and then the smoky woods will reconfirm that you're a man.

    Aventus. I just got MI, cannot understand the appeal. SO MUCH SALT, some vegetables, musky fruit. Aventus smells like wood and Man.

    They're both excellent. My girlfriend slightly prefers Millesime Imperial.

    She also loves MFK Aqua Universalis Forte.

    Default Re: Creed Aventus or Millesime Imperial?

    Tough indeed! I would go with MI as it is more subtle , outgoing , smooth and sensual IMO.

    I never wear my scents to make an impression, I do it only for my own good feeling of feeling fresh and clean tough it does occur to me when someone is next to me smelling of Ariel from head to toe. I have both and I have never been complimented, at least at work, but I notice exactly who are sniffing me because they are coming to my workplace without a particular reason or people standing much closer to me than usual.
    Aventus is complicated and warmer than MI, therefore pleasant and catches older ppl. 30+ and once noticed definitely pulls attention.
    MI on the other hand it is quite sharp (the saltiness in it) and makes everyone wonders about what they smell.
    I have no idea what girls think and really don't care.

    Both smell great but I prefer Aventus because it has better projection and longevity.

    Default Re: Creed Aventus or Millesime Imperial?

    For date, I'd go with Creed MI to be on the safe side ..(especially if you guys gonna be in close quarters)..I was told Aventus too strong and smokey..I would still choose Aventus as a overall signature scent though ...

    I prefer MI and have received more compliments wearing it. Aventus is good though. I might have just received a better batch of MI than Aventus though, who knows...

    I own and love both...BUT to impress a girl?? Have to go with Aventus....EVER so slightly though above MI....Let's put it this way....If you want to knock her socks off and WOW her and looking for a STRONG STATEMENT...THen Aventus....If you want, SUBTLE, LIGHT, SEXY, oozing with class, then MI is your best choice...
    Looking for Byredo Pulp -

    Aventus. I know many girls who don't like MI at all. I guess it's way too salty and not appealing since it doesn't really smell like perfume anymore.

  41. #41

    Default Re: Creed Aventus or Millesime Imperial?

    That's a tough one. Both are crowd pleasers. Millesime is fresh and best worn dressed up I think. Aventus feels more like a masculine scent tshirt and jeans.

    Default Re: Creed Aventus or Millesime Imperial?

    Id say Aventus. I got compliments on both, but in the last few bottles of MI, that salt has become more prominent. Back when I first wore it, it was a great melon scent, very bright and yet sophisticated. This salt note leaves me wistful for the first bottle of MI and yes, that was before the GREAT REFORMULATION.

    Aventus, when it is equally pineapple and smoke, wow, sure is nice. The asnomic thing turns me off sometimes about it, for wearing a cologne is more for my enjoyment and I do like it when others love it on me. But I do get compliments when i dont think I can smell it

    For me, Aventus. The old MI vs. Aventus? Tie
