The only unprofitable thing here is greed for profit
As for the fragrance itself, I think we've said it all. It smells like a more mass market version of Creed's MI with less or no salt. You could also say a designer version of MI.

The smell used to be good. Since about 2-3 years the fragrance is no longer produced by Sean John Fragrances but by Jacavi Beauty Group. This is written on the box and/or on the bottle. I suspect that Sean John Fragrances no longer exists or that Puffy has split from this line of business. Probably he got a nice sum for the cession of the name rights. As one of the richest persons in the hiphop bizz he didn't need to do so. But one doesn't know what the intention was The fact is that massive savings have been made since then. The cool holder where the bottle sits, as you can see here on the picture, hasn't been delivered for a long time now.
The concentration also appears to have been greatly reduced. Unfortunately an incredibly thin water. At first I thought that it was mainly due to my nose and that I would become fragrance-blind, but that is not the case. The other statements here and on Fragrantica are probably clear.
It's a pity that Puffy lets his perfume brand go to the dogs, he has more than enough money to deliver really good quality here.
But as always in the economy: if one wears down, another wins.
In this case it is clearly Armaf with her Milestone, an unbelievable good and especially strong performance copy of Creed's MI.
Nevertheless, it is a pity that Unforgivable had to end up like this, as it was a very pleasing fragrance.

Salty fruit cocktail
The scent of Sean John is very similar to the Creed Milsime Imperial.
It opens salty fruity.
The fragrance retains its fruity note throughout its entire but relatively short life.
If you want a fragrance that resembles a Creed or if you want to know if the Creed perfume fits to you, take this fragrance.

Still no replacement for me.

The cheaper Millesime Imperial ?
Imagine having a swim in the ocean on a summer day... as you walk back on the beach, your skin slowly dries and the ocean breeze blows the disctinct smell of the salty remains on your body, mixed with the leftover citrusy-orangey hint of the Terre d'Hermes you wore yesterday and memories of the glass of rum you enjoyed at sunset... that's what this smells like to me.

This does remind me of Millesime Imperial, but the quality is not nearly as good and longevity is unfortunately very fleeting.
In short : slightly synthetic salty boozy citrus, somehow reminding me of fresh sweat (but not offensive as in body odor)

Projection and sillage are very weak on me though, very soft, and after two hours it's a skin scent and after three hours it's completely gone…

Original smell and I kinda like it, but very unimpressive performance.

very, very sad
I like the smell very well, 8,5/10, pleasantly fruity without this typical chewing gum sweetness. It'd be great for the summer. Unfortunately the performance is extremely bad. Can't smell a thing out there despite six sprays. On the skin the scent disappears almost completely after 1h. A real shame. They're selling it.

Interesting celeb scent
That's a great surprise for a celeb scent.

Smells woody and a little sweet, with average lasting power (around 6 hours), low sillage and low projection.

The rum note is noticeable here.

Reminds me of Millesime Imperial, but 1/5 of Creed's price. Worth it.

Even the sales assistant couldn't hide her disgust
I find something rather strange and irritating about Unforgivable by Sean John. I can't put a definite finger on what it is that I detest, I just know that I'm not attracted to this scent in the slightest.

The opening is extremely synthetic and sharp. It's one big citrusy mess with strange additives of basil and birch leaf which don't seem to blend well.

The heart notes aren't much better, however thankfully the scent softens slightly. Lavendar, clary Sage and iris gives this fragrance a rather herbaceous and aromatic feel.

In the drydown I can detect mostly musky sandalwood and some strong alcoholic note which I assume is supposed to be the rum, however instead it smells like straight vodka.

I'm not really a fan of this fragrance, even the sales assistant turned up her nose at this one. It would suit very few men in my humble opinion.
