Most of the fragrances that are created for men really exude that strong and masculine scent that can sometimes be overbearing.
But then again, many would prefer to have this type of scent especially if you want to look manly and attractive to the opposite sex.
Among these types of scent that falls into that specific category is the Imperial Millesime created by Creed.
Launched in the same year with the Silver Mountain, this gives you a sharp scent that perfectly portrays the classic and even modern gentlemen.
Personally I am not such a huge fan of wearing strong fragrances. I usually wear this type of scent when there is an occasion but not all the time.
Yet, there are so many things to love about this cologne. So what do I think about it?

The Imperial Millesime gives you that romantic and warm scent that reminds you of the beautiful landscape of Sicily.
When you look at the packaging alone, it is presented in a very regal and elegant design with the gold accents and the Creed logo tied around its box.
The gold bottle looks ravishing which can already attract you to try what this cologne as to offer.
The moment the fragrance opens up, you get to smell the rich citrus scent that brings you that sunny and majestic sight of Sicily.
Combining the fruity and salty scent as it uses sea salt and fruit, the scent is really strong and masculine.
The middle notes include mandarin orange, iris, bergamot and lemon followed by the base notes including musk and woody notes.
Composition: The fragrance opens up with sharp notes. But to my surprise, it smells really good.
It has this unique combination of fruity, woody and musky notes that make the scent of the Imperial Millessime stand out.
The top notes give you that citrus and striking scent that will blow you away.
The base notes give you that woody and salty scent which add depth to the composition of the cologne.
But the downside is that in as much as the cologne is packaged in a very elegant and royal design,the over-all scent quality is not so great.
The project is just so so which can be a negative thing.
Best Use: Since this cologne has a really strong scent, you cannot use it at night or if you do make sure that you do not put a lot if you do not want to choke people in a room.
Although this scent gives that sharp and masculine scent, you wouldn’t want to overdo it.
How about its best use? This is perfectly suitable for day use.
Whether you are going to a meeting or to run your daily errands, it will hold which makes it a great choice for those who are looking for great daytime wear cologne.
Longevity: The moderate and just satisfactory projection of the Imperial Millesime is well-compensated by its longevity.
Yes! This is one of the things I like about this cologne.
It is simply amazing when it comes to this particular department. It lasts for hours. This long lasting fragrance only requires you to have a few sprays so you are good to go.
Is the Imperial Millesime worth the purchase? You will have to weigh the pros and cons alongside your personal preferences.
After all, every person can have a different opinion when it comes to a certain type of scent.
If you are the type who really wants a strong and masculine scent, you can never go wrong in choosing Imperial Millesime.
But if you are like me who prefer to have a more laid back scent, this may not be the best choice for you.
It can be quite too strong and overpowering so you should not put on too much.
But over-all, this is still a good purchase especially when you know that it is created by Creed.
