I loved the stand alone IP, however cos I’ve run out it’s impossible to do a side by side comparison. Based on my memory this is 95% IP and only in the far dry down do I notice Another 13 Shades. I’m sure if were to do a side by side the nuances would be more noticeable - either way this is absolutely gorgeous. I love the fragrance so bought the OG Creed Millesime Imperial over the summer and am really disappointed by it - the opening is amazing, however it’s gone far too quickly. Honestly, truthfully unless I’m in an indoors environment and want to make an impactful first impression by spraying it on 5 mins before, then I prefer this hybrid all day, any day.
This fragrance is definitely for the summer. Great scent that lasts a long time. I like it as I don’t think I have smelled anything like it. The blend works nicely together.
