    Re: The Official Creed Green Irish Tweed thread!

    Sorry to say I have to agree with the skepticism about GIT's origins. I'd believe that Cary Grant wore it after it was released, but I wouldn't believe that the fragrance was made well before it was...

    Re: Fragrances similar to Givenchy Play Intense

    Just tried Guerlain Tonka Imperiale and it has a similar vibe to me, interestingly enough, though with a few notable differences. Most importantly, being Guerlain, it didn't smell even the slightest...

    I wouldn't just let it sit and age. It ages with exposure to air so spraying would have some beneficial effects. Plus...that way you won't have to wait!

    Re: Fragrances similar to Givenchy Play Intense

    My only problem with Play Intense is that it had a synthetic vibe in my opinion. Is there another fragrance that smells similar but with more naturals? I wouldn't mind paying more for that!
