    Millesime Imperial would be the better choice of the two. It's a great aquatic scent for the warmer months. Virgin Island Water is also great for the warmer months. Both of these do really well around others.

    I feel the same. I only recently purchased a bottle of SMW, but I prefer MI.

    MI for me too. I tried SMW first and really like it, but MI is more versatile.

    I like SMW a lot more than MI. It lasts longer on me and I'll wear it on the hottest and coldest of days.

    I would also pick MI of those two. And then purchase AL Wisam Day as an impressive alternative to SMW.

    +1 it’s nice and when I wore it even leaning slightly feminine it’s gives the wearer an aura of class and stands out.

    I do think MI is okay, just SMW is more unique and stand-out to me

    Smw. The sillage smells way better to me. On sheets and fabric, it comes off more elegant and luxurious. Mi just smelled a little screechy to me.

    MI for me also, although I also like SMW and own both. The tea note in SMW gets old, so I don't wear it nearly as often.

    I prefer SMW, though I must admit MI is a bit more versatile.

    I, too, am a member of this minority.

    MI is good, but it doesn't bring anything unique to the table in the way SMW does, which is like an artisanal take on CK1.

    I only have a 30 cc of SMW but might try to score a 120 bottle while they are still floating around. It's a good dumb reach in warmer climates and I'd probably wear it more if I had more to wear (spoken like a true BNer).

    I just recently did this comparison too with some samples. I thought both were pretty good, but ultimately didn't opt for either at this time. I think I'd choose MI because I think it smells better. But SMW lasted longer.

    I like MI more, but I reach for SMW even in colder weather, where I see MI as a Spring/Summer fragrance.

    If I could only have one, I'd have MI.

    My husband and I did a blind test of his Creed sample set and Millesime Imperial won hands down.

    I like both, but Milliseme Imperial has a really nice salty accord that's quite unique.
    Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Pomegranate Noir, Midnight in Paris EDP, Feeling Man, Essence of John Galliano, Azzaro pour Homme (vintage),...etc.

    Seeking decant/sample of Aramis Calligraphy Rose, Penhaligon's Esprit de Roi, PdE Ambre Russe, Jil Sander Feeling Man ....etc. I have samples to swap.

    There were a few batches of SMW back in 2014 which smelled strongly of the black currant accord. It was beautiful. 14L01 I believe it was.

    I went to Dillard's and tried them both. MI was the winner of them both. SMW smelled ok but MI was great.

    MI for me, nice, salty, musky, warm weather scent. Just my opinion but SMW has a cold, melancholy feel to it that I'm usually not trying to achieve with my frag pick of the day...also, leans more fem to me with the floral notes.

    I would personally opt for Millesime Imperial. Although Silver Mountain Water is nice, it comes across more metallic and less wearable (in my opinion) on a daily basis, which is the only scenario I would purchase MI.
