First, I would agree that it is extremely likely -- I'd say almost guaranteed -- that a "Creed" sold in a mall kiosk is not authentic.
Second, my nose must disagree with heperd. I think Wall Street smells like a cucumber salad. Unforgivable MP, on the other hand, to me, is the closest thing to MI you can get on the market, and I've tried scores of MI smellalikes.
Personally, if I already owned unforgivable MP, I think I'd buy a different scent before I bought MI for my wardrobe, and buy MI only when I ran out of MP. I think they're both fine scents, but they're too close to justify having both in my rotation (unless money was no object).
