    Re: The Official Creed Green Irish Tweed thread!

    What exactly is grey market as my bottle (also batch no A3211X01) had arabic text on one of the cards in the box so Im assuming this means that it was 'grey market'

    Re: The Official Creed Green Irish Tweed thread!

    Starting to think that it may be heat related. Ive got oily skin so Ive got that part covered, projection and sillage wise, I think when I was trying out the testers, it was really hot at that time...

    Re: The Official Creed Green Irish Tweed thread!

    First Ive heard of anyone saying that tbh. From what I can gather on here, people seem to get monster projection and sillage from good batches of GIT. I for one am one of them whilst using the...

    Wow great reply and very helpful indeed.

    Thanks for that! Will get cracking with ordering some samples then! :)

    Unfortunately, I dont live in or go to London much so only have access to the John Lewis's and Debenhams which are great for smelling the mainstream stuff but I keep hearing niche stuff mentioned on...

    Re: The Official Creed Green Irish Tweed thread!

    Ive not had much chance to wear my GIT from cheapsmells.com but put some one at 3pm today then fell asleep and woke up at 7pm, pretty much nothing so I cross referenced it with this thread:

  9. Re: Detecting notes etc - something that you learn over time?

    Interesting, thanks guys.

    Another thing that I dont get which may be difficult for me to explain is that it seems some fragrances are liked by many on here; ie the same ones, like Guerlain...
  10. Re: Detecting notes etc - something that you learn over time?

    Good advice, makes sense really.

    Ill go ahead and try that, thanks :)
  11. Detecting notes etc - something that you learn over time?

    When I smell a fragrance, I just smell a scent. Literally, I cant really differentiate any particular notes most of the time.

    Re: What are some nice Aquatics to try?

    Is it just me or are aquatics a bit frowned upon in a way to the parfum connoisseur?

    Am I also right in thinking that in general, aquatics dont seem to have much longevity?

    Now that Im thinking...
