    Default Vintage Milliseme Imperial

    Does this vintage millisime imperial have better performance than the newer ones? Newer ones become a skin scent so fast

    I can't speak to the newer ones, but I have the original release in the gold bottle when it was first released and performance for me is very good.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    There was a recent thread about this very thing, and MANY did say that the strength of the MI offered over the last few years has been noticeably inferior to what it was in earlier years. I have an older bottle and it's great, but since I haven't smelled any newer MI, I can't really offer an opinion.

    But the overwhelming opinion of those that have smelled newer batches over the last few years is that performance has gone down, seemingly without question, and that the problem is not solved by giving it a little extra time to blossom in the bottle (which is the case with some Creeds).

    So it might be in your best interest to seek out an older bottle.

    Ask on the Facebook groups, might have a decent shot at one or more being offered actually. Just be reasonable with your expectations, and you'll probably have to deal with a partial/used bottle - but you seem to be alright with decants, so that's probably fine.
