Millesime Imperial by Creed comes in the same bottle as the rest of the Creed fragrances that have been reviewed. Millesime Imperial comes with a gold label and a gold lid. I must say it is a nice presentation and really stands out compared to some of the other Creed bottles. Now the important part, the juice. Millesime Imperial is one of my favorites from the Creed line. It opens with a nice melon and citrus note that is really well done. It then begins to drydown to a nice musk and sea salt fragrance. The watermelon note in the opening is rather unique, and really well made. I’ve been really happy with this one and is a definite in my men’s cologne collection.
For me I have zero complaints with projection of longevity for Millesime Imperial. Projection is pretty loud the first few hours on this one, more then I expected. Once the drydown begins it gets closer to the skin, but still does a very nice job. Longevity is also pretty good, especially for the type of fragrance it is. I get 6-8 hours of good projection before it slowly fades away.
Millesime Imperial can be worn by anyone 18+ and would really work in any scene. I wouldn’t wear this one to a club or bar, unless maybe its a bar on the beach. However I think it’d do fine at work or on a date. This one is a compliment getter from females of all ages. You’re going to get noticed when wearing this one for sure.
This is the closest a Creed has gotten to “buy’. Just due to the price I can’t recommend it to anyone without trying it first. If you’re looking for a perfect spring/summer fragrance or a signature scent, then you’ve got to give Millesime Imperial a sampling.
