Aside from Cool Water, many here have compared GIT to Curve and Floris JF.
Anything similar to Green Irish Tweed, but not Coolwater? I am lookoing for something in this scent range.
But I do not want Coolwater but something close to Green Irish Tweed.
Try Floris' JF or the harder to find Marquis by Crown Perfumery, now made by Anglia (I think), though I can't vouch for the latter's quality as I have only smelled Crown's version.
i,m agree with Marquis Crown,very similar
TOP 5: Antico Caruso, Penhaligons Racquets, Great Jones Bond nº 9, HDP 1725, Floris nº 89
Bobby Jones is also in the same vein as GIT.
"Ca sent les pieds!"
Definitely Floris J.F.
Curve for Men
In rotation: Greenbriar (new), Silver Mountain Water, Dunhill for Men (1934), Acqua di Parma Colonia, Habit Rouge EDC, Ho Hang, B*Men, Agua Brava
I have both Curve and GiT and they smell NOTHING! like each other, I really mean nothing,Originally Posted by Vicomte de K
Floris JF is very sharp and has a lot more woods. I prefer GIT by miles. My girl-firend doesn't like it on me, yet she LOVES GIT and says it's the best scent I have! :-?
My SOTD was Floris JF layered with Coolwater and then layered with GIT.
JF and Coolwater are not as good as GIT....period.
They may smell similar but the quality of the GIT really comes through 3-4 hours after application.
Chez Bond by Bond No. 9 has a nearly identical opening to Green Irish Tweed, but the drydown is somewhat softer. I think it's a better GIT than GIT--and I really like GIT!
Note, however, that CB is not as widely-sold as GIT. You're not likely to find it discounted anywhere, so be prepared for some sticker-shock (around $180 for 3.4 ounce bottle)....

I've never sampled GIT, but Cool Water and Curve are totally unalike.
Montale Fougeres Marine
I agree with Dennis on Chez Bond....a softer GIT.
On the subject of GiT, I was reading in the Reviews section, One reviewer mentions
""Originally created in 1901 for King Alfonso XIII of Spain. After the king's death it was released in 1942 in paris and in 1985 in the United States"
Anyone know if this is true?
I had always read that GIT was created for Cary Grant. Now it's King Alphonso? Is there no certainty left in the world?Originally Posted by Incedal
