Reviews of Geir

Geir starts out as a sweet, fruity-green scent in roughly the same genre as Creed’s Green Irish Tweed or Davidoff’s Cool Water. In fact, the first time I sprayed it on, I thought to myself: “Oh, GIT v2.0!” The opening accord is similarly fresh and pleasant, if a bit more reserved and woodsy. The similarity in mood persists for a while but Geir, to its credit, begins to move in its own direction.

The woods that sneak around in the opening become more dominant as the scent develops, entering darker, drier territory than the top notes ventured into. After the first hour or so, a smooth, resinous conifer note steps in to add a hint of the forest to the heart accord. Sillage and projection are both moderate, and the woody and ever-so-slightly mossy drydown is gratifyingly lasting. Geir remains a very safe, pleasant fragrance throughout, and while there’s not a whit of originality to it, it is easy to wear in any season or setting.

Very average.

Geir Ness is like sticking your nose in a bouquet of roses. There is a bit of added sweetness, but overall this is almost exactly what it smells like. Didn't get great longevity or projection out of Geir Ness. This is probably by design and a good thing for this fragrance. Can't say I would ever wear this or recommend this. For myself this is a very very feminine fragrance. Also, I don't see any comparison to Allure Homme Sport or Joop Jump. Geir Ness is all about the flowers.

Pros: Pleasant scent.
Cons: Not much too it. Doesn't last or project."

Nice, fresh, light "etherial" smell. Not convinced of its longevity as it's spotty. Doesn't really blow me away in any way, but if you are looking for a very light, pleasant, flowery scent, this one you should take a look at.

Geir is a floral scent that smells fresh, clean, and pleasant. It also has some element of coolness and sweetness to it. When wearing this, I imagine myself lying in a grassy field around brightly-colored flowers on a sunny and breezy day of pre-Spring season. Comforting and relaxing.

The longevity is pretty good. Despite of its softness, I keep getting whiffs of it for five, six straight hours, before it sits on skin the rest of the way.

Thumbs up for Geir; it’s the kind of scent you’ll never get tired of smelling.

I enjoy the scent. I perfer the powder/floral sweet scents although I have been stepping out of my comfort zone lately with new purchases. My main reason for the review is to let everyone know that they have changed the bottle drastically. upon receiving from an online retailer I thought it was a fake but it is the real deal. Talked with Geir and they confirmed it. They no longer screen the name on the bottle it is a sticker and the bottle is more rectangular. IMO it has totally cheapened the look and feel of the fragrance. It seems very generic but for anyone with concerns after an online purchase it is real.

Good scent terrible presentation.

Geir by Geir Ness - Initially, one is treated to an exhilarating citrus-floral accord. Hesperidic notes impart their citrus highlights of lemon, bergamot, tangerine and orange. A perfumy hedione bestows its fresh jasmine and slight powdery aspects. And, magical aldehydes summon forth a burst of laundered-linen freshness and floral effervescence. A faint, sweet smell of salt water taffy flitters about. Transitioning to the waiting heart, the opening blend is enmeshed with methyl salicylate, furnishing its attendant menthol and wintergreen facets, as well as amyl salicylate, supplying its sweetly floral and herbaceously green aura, thereby creating a cool, conifer illusion. A whisper of lively pepper flutters here and there, while a slight, burnt sugar presents. An errant, feeble smell of fireworks or something like burnt gunpowder also surfaces. Segueing to the awaiting base, a smooth, woody accord as well as a somewhat bitter, mossy accord usurp and enhance the outdoorsy mixture, and, coupled with a wave of sweetish vanilla, lead to an alluring drydown. Albeit an ordinary composition, it is the epitome of mountain freshness, and has good projection and very good longevity.
