    Default Green Irish Tweed - or - Aventus?

    Hi all, it's been a while since my last post. I'm running out of GIT and freaking out a little bit! Now I want to buy Creed perfume again but don't know if I should head towards GIT or Aventus.

    I haven't tried Aventus before (haven't had a chance to), but don't let that affect your suggestions. Should I get GIT or Aventus? It's stinking hot here in Australia at moment by the way.

    Thanks in advanced

    I love Aventus, but you need to find the right batch number.

    Hi DazWah84, I saw Aventus on FragranceNet, is it too risky to get it from them?

    They're both good. I would try Aventus first. There are enough GIT fans who don't like it, that it would be a risky blind buy, IMO.

    You could get small bottles of both, I would go with Aventus though just for the change.

    Even in cold I think GIT is a way better scent, but in that hot - no question.

    Both are fantastic, but I would go for Aventus. Better longevity (on my skin), and a drydown to die for!

    For me an easy question: Aventus

    Aventus has a great ambergris base which is wonderful.

    GIT to my nose, smells terribly synthetic.

    GIT by a long shot. Aventus? I honestly don't understand the hype.

    I recently purchased Aventus, and find my self reaching for it a little more often than the GIT. It seems to suit the much more casual day to day world than GIT. I do however find the longevity to be inferior to that of GIT's.

    GIT has for me a cold feeling, so I really enjoy it in hot weather. Not just then, but even now, in our winter do I love it.

    Slightly sweet smokiness vs green, slightly sweet florals. Take your pick!

    How do you know which batch is good?

    I like the smell of Aventus. I got a small sample and loved it.

    Lastly, as much as I would love to buy both but I don't have a bag of money laying around. Australian summer is ending by the end of February.

    So which one will also be good in cooler whether it cools down here?

    Batches of Aventus - There really is a difference. I have decants of both - one is great and one is meh. There's thread about it. And oddly, every tester I've sprayed on in dept stores has emitted nuclear powered Aventus. That's the problem - no consistency. Is it worth the risk if you can only afford one?

    Seriously? Neither.
    But fwiw I'd go with GIT.

    Tired Aventus again today and it smells a lot better. Any suggestions as where to buy it (I'll get GIT the month after next)?

    Checked my usual places like Strawberrynet, Fragrancenet, and BeautyEncounter. Only BE has it but the postage would bring it right up to something similar to Creedperfume.com.au ($310 a pop for 120ml at CreedPerfume.com.au!!)

    Has anyone bought Aventus from Creedperfume.com.au and how was the quality? Or do you recommend somewhere else that ships to Australia?

    Thanks guys.

    OK... just read about Jubilation XXV and now I'm confused where to put my money!

    Thread appears to be about 50/50.

    In other words, get both!

    I think I'm going for Aventus, that depends how Jubilation XXV testing will be like tomorrow. Then get GIT next month, and Musc Ravegeur in June for winter

    I put on Aventus on left arm and Amouge Jubilation XXV on the right, asked my female colleague for opinion and she likes Aventus more.

    There is no doubt how much the more fair gender likes Aventus! As a pear shaped, graying, middle aged guy with glasses, ladies ask what I'm wearing and they're most pleased so you know it's good.

    However-------

    If GIT is making you that nervous about the bottle becoming empty, resupply it. Later, when ready, purchase something else. What I read between the lines is that you're not quite ready to turn your back on Green Irish Tweed.

    Have you layered it with Millesime Imperial yet? The top stays around for an amazingly long time. I'd almost recommend GIT + a small bottle of MI over about anything.

    Default Re: Green Irish Tweed - or - Aventus?

    I've layered GIT and MI together and IMO it's not that nice. Floral mess.

    Default Re: Green Irish Tweed - or - Aventus?

    I'm going to get Aventus from Creedperfume.com.au if nobody suggests anywhere else with good batch and more affordable price (ship to Australia).

    I would choose Aventus more newcomer.
    Althought, GIT is a class..
