    I had a bottle and longevity was really poor on my skin. Nobody was able to detect it after ca. 2 hours.

    GIT has no - within reason, I repeat, no - longevity issues. Different batches can differ, and therefore the necessary number of sprays can differ (I would say 2 to 4, never more than 5, the precise number based on the specific bottle, weather, outdoors/indoors, situation, and personal chemistry/preference), but when "you can't smell it anymore" after two hours it is most likely that everybody else does.

    My latest bottle from the Creed Boutique is on the lighter side, but also its quality is superb, and my trusted other half told me once, meeting me three hours after application, that I've "overapplied".

    Green Irish Tweed is a superb fragrance in every single respect, except for behaving like an olfactory tornado siren.

    Hey guys - OP here. I got the bottle from fragrancenet.com FWIW. Perhaps I got a bad batch... because my Aventus I got directly from the Creed Boutique last a good 5-6 hours.

    Having said that, I'm not going to play the "return and re-buy and hope you get a good bottle" game. From my research, there's too many here to complain about bad longevity issues with just about all Creed fragrances. I'm going to take my Aventus longevity as a blessing and run with it.

    I easily get 8+ hours from GIT.....Gary

    Try just one spray to teh chest and see how long you can detect it. I bet you'll notice it for far longer than two hours. You may think this sounds absurd but I can almost guarantee it will work. Besides, what do you have to lose?

    What's amazing to me is you like the longevity of your AVENTUS and it seems to outlast GIT on you. I find that a real puzzler.

    Well, same with me...I opened the Aventus sampler last night just to smell it, didn't put any on because I was trying something else, and I swear I smelled it all night! Woke up this morning still smelling it and it stunk up the house all day today! Or maybe it's all in my nose...I may have gotten a bit on my nose when I smelled it last night!

    But I'm trying what SculptureofSoul suggested and spraying GIT on my chest instead of neck to see if that does the trick...just tried that after a thorough shower but I can still smell the Aventus overpowering the GIT!?!

    Spraying on the neck (or any exposed skin) or spraying so much that your nose is constantly bombarded with the scent will cause you to lose track of the scent rather quickly due to olfactory fatigue. I find that almost all scents last 6+ hours (often 8-10+) when applying just one or two sprays to the mid chest (at about sternum level).

    Hope that works for you!

    it depends on the GIT that you got.

    I have an '01 that has crazy long longevity.

    I have an '09 that smells 2X better but has less longevity.

    I'll take the second choice any day of the week and twice on Sundays.

    Current: GREEN IRISH TWEED (since June 2010)
    Past: BOIS DU PORTUGAL (Oct. 09 - May 10)

    GIT is rather deceiving... it could give you the impression that last little but it does not and I find that when I think its long gone people will still smell it on me big time.
    The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education.

    Longevity for me with this scent is great.

    In my trials of GIT, I get around 4 hours tops on skin.

    I now spray the tops of my arms where the hair is and I get double the longevity for every fragrance. Heck, even my cheapie Lucky Number 6 lasts 8 hours in that spot. Gotta love hair.

    I've found this to be true as well. Maybe this is one of the reasons I've never experienced/perceived any major longevity issues from any fragrance.

    I've also found this to be true. I was doing this for a while too, but stopped when I realized I was projecting too much for the office. I don't want to be "the cologne guy" in the office.

    Either way I do second both recommendations to anyone that is having longevity issues (real or perceived) from their fragrances.

    OP HERE:

    Guys – I’m no noob to fragrance application. This stuff is just plain gone after 2 hours. I asked my wife to smell it and she said she could, but extremely faintly. Application was to chest, let dry, then put clothes on – the same way I do all my fragrances.

    On the other hand, within the Creed family, my Aventus last and last. Other fragrances that last all day, and I constantly get wafts from it is Prada Infusion, Terre d’Hermes, and many others. But GIT is a thumbs down. Gone after 2 hours to a light/faint skin scent. Sorry, but my hard earned cash won’t go to an extremely expensive ‘skin scent’.

    Guess I got a bad batch… cuz my Aventus last forever on me…. Oh well. GIT was pretty generic smelling anyhow, so I’m not too upset. I’ll replace it with something else.

    Return it and get the Chez Bond. It smells better anyway.

    Sorry. I personally didn't mean to imply you were a noob or misapplying. It is likely you got a bad/old bottle. Like you said, replace it with something else. GIT, as popular as it is, isn't for everyone. It wasn't full bottle worthy for me either.

    It-s very sad that it has a lackluster longevity on your skin. We all have different skin chemistry and the scents adapts to it...on me it also happens the same and i don-t get much after 2 hours of use.
    I would recommend using on the skin a wax base (pomade like), preferably unscented on the spraying site, then apply as much as you need to, the scent will last much longer that way.
    I don-t think it is necessary to get rid of a scent only because it has poor longevity on your skin.

    Personally, i like to layer this one with a Bergamot scented wax sometimes, and sometimes with an unscented wax.
