    Default Virgin Island Water - Millesime vs. Eau De Parfum

    Hi all,

    Well, I finally found a Creed I actually like. I know that there are variation from one batch to the other, but are there differences (other than volume) between Millesime and Eau De Parfum? I have seen edp in 1.7 and 3.3 fl. oz, while the Millesime comes in 3.4 and 4 fl. oz.

    I'm personally not aware that there is any difference regarding this particular fragrance in that regard.

    My initial internet search has also not revealed anything, but given the price I want to be certain that I am not missing anything. Wrapping my head around the different batch codes is difficult enough, I don't want to have to deal with Millesime vs. edp as well.

    But I suppose if Sir hednic is not aware of any meaningful differences, I guess I should just ignore it.

    Creed bottles had a resizing of their bottles back in 2016 going from 75ml and 120ml to 50ml and 100ml respectively. The scent itself remains the same.

    To answer this question, there is no difference. All VIW bottles are EdP. The Millesime is just a marketing term that Creed use.

    From what I've read, Creed claim that they use the best harvest of the year to produce Millesime bottles. I'm not sure if there's any difference though.
