    Default How many sprays of GIT?

    For the ones who possess it, I was wondering how many sprays of GIT you guys are using and where?

    Cause I can't seem to find the right number, its like not enough or too much. It seem to differ so much depending on the situation.


    I would say this scent is working good when its not too crowded or when there's not too much different odors going around, cause it seem to be overpowered easily.

    Exemple: your at a diner at a friend house with 15 people, it smell food, different cologne etc, in this situation nobody seem to smell it.

    And the heat seem to kill it fast.

    But when there's more room for him to shine people notice you or sit closer etc.


    I don't know if its acting like this only on me but I would like your opinions.

    Green Irish Tweed may be the strongest (longevity and sillage-wise, not attitude-wise) fragrance I own. Out of a collection of over 130 bottles, it is the only scent where I literally only use one spritz; I do one spray in the palm of my hand, rub my hands together, then spread it all around. More than one spritz, and I can taste GIT.

    Take that from a guy who wears a lot of 70s and 80s powerhouse frags. Even with Bijan Men or PS by Paul Sebastian, I use more than one spritz, and those are superpowerful.

    I guess my bottle of GiT is malfunctioning because I need at least 6 sprays to even get a cologne vibe in the morning

    If you're spraying from the actual bottle (which has that mega insane Creed atomizer) then 2 VERY MAXIMUM. I have a small decant of GIT and even with that I use 2, maybe 3 max. I find the soapy floral vibe of it can get very annoying if you overspray.

    I used to have it and wore a good bit more at a time, but all under clothes. You'll find using around 4-5 sprays under your shirt and undershirt will only emanate wafts now and then, but they're much more pleasing wafts than a single, struggling spray will be able to muster hours after spraying. That's become my much preferred way of application over common neck/arm/etc spraying.

    The variety of responses here and in other similar threads about GIT amaze me. I wonder if this one varies a lot from batch to batch or some such.
    It's certainly not a very light scent on me, but 3-4 sprays is about average for me. I know many of the scents shamu uses and am shocked that he can only use one spray of GIT.

    Even though creed atomizers technically bathe you with the fragrance, I found that there was no amount of sprays that would make the fragrance last.

    the thing is, Creed fragrances are rather inconsistent, as in one bottle may have great longevity while the next will have close to non.
    So, I would have to check your own personal bottle out to make a valid applicable judgment

    Yep hard to believe. Though it's not a power frag, GIT is just so concentrated and projects incredibly far, for so long. I can't believe how many posts I've read where members talk about how GIT only lasts an hour or two.

    I have a very dry skin. I use 6 sprays...
    less than 6, ppl dont even notice I am wearing any.

    It realy depends on your skin type... Mine is extremely dry... I would say an avereage guy would be fine with 3-4 sprays..... oily skins 2 sprays will do.

    GIT is very concentrated but not strong... and I received lots of compliments just because of that!

    I try and apply GIT a minimum of one hour before I plan to be in close presence of others. Two sprays - One on each of the pulse points serves me well. I do keep a small atomizer with me if I plan to be out most of the day.

    Just received my bottle if GIT today from Beautyencounter.com. This batch is strong! I had only used sample vials before. I'm glad as I only bought the 1 oz. bottle and at one spray per wear this will last me a long time!

    How much variance is there really between batches of GIT? I ask as yesterday I received a bottle bought from Creed's UK site and the longevity is nothing like what I remember it being from when I had some a few years ago. After about 4-5 hours I couldn't really detect it and it didn't even seem to last long on a shirt I sprayed a bit with to test it. It used to be that I could still smell it strongly the next morning after wearing it. A bad batch perhaps or just rapid habituation from all the sniffing I was doing shortly after the first application?

    Pretty big variance. My latest bottle (the freshest I've had) is weaker... I can spray three times safely, which I rarely do with things other than citrusy colognes. I am not annoyed by this relative weakness, as the top notes are sensed marvelously, and the drydown is still great, if a tad more on the subtle side.

    Hard to say with the variance of batches with Creed's fragrances. 3 or 4's probably good for yours.

    yesterday i applied two sprays of GIT while in the bedroom on the third floor. two hours later, my wife enters the house in the basement and could smell it.

    for whatever reason, GIT can fill a house. something about it travels through the air like a mo-fro.

    this is one of those rare fragrances that has extreme sillage but below average longevity.

    It's frustrating though that for the same money, and even less if you go with Ebay, that you could end up with a much stronger bottle. I only went for the official Creed site because of all that I've read about how much better a fresh bottle is, but really, it's just the same but weaker.

    This is the formula I use to decide how much GIT to spray:

    x (sprays) = {q (temperature) + [q2 + (r-p2)3]1/2}1/3 + {q(occasion) - [q2 + (r-p2)3]1/2}1/3 + p (age of GIT)
    where p = -b/(3a), q (age)= p3 (latitude) + (bc-3ad)/(6a2), r (longitude)= c/(3a)

    This is a great formula but it only works when the ambient temperature is between 70 and 73.5 F. in the Northern hemisphere.

    6 to 8 sprays under clothes.
    It's a potent scent initially, but it doesn't stay potent for too long. On me, Cool water easily outlasts it potency-wise.

    My bottle is potent, so I use one only. Out of my 3 Creed fragrances GIT and Original Vetiver are very strong 2 sprays would actually bother me throughout the day, especially if I were to get hot. My Erolfa in extremely weak, or I just get used to it too fast and it has no longevity in comparison. And I am not even the type of person to complain about longevity, even extremely long lasting fragrances bother me.

    a new bottle of GIT is not weaker at all. But it is probably 50% better than old bottles. the top notes in GIT disappear from a bottle almost completely after 5 years. I went from a 9 year old bottle to a fresh one recently (09 date stamp) and it smells like a different (and better) fragrance altogether.
