    Hi, i received my GIT from fragrance.net and the number is A3210E01. I didn't liked it and it, way more flowery than my samples i have.

    And something really bizzare is that the writting inside the box on the little paper was in arabian or something like that. There was a stamp under the bottle in Arabian too.

    But the rest seems all ok. So i returned it and asked for an exhange. Will post how it ended when i will receive my new bottle.

    In all honesty, 2010 was the worst year for GIT. The batches smelled flat and had zero sillage. As far as the Arabian writing, it's the real thing....just a Grey Market version of GIT. Does it also say "Toilet Water" PGS on the back? Try to get a 2011 batch...they smell great and the Violet Notes are very strong....

    Thanks for the head's up checker! That's what i tought too about it to be very weak. It was also marked Toilet Water on the back. I really hope my new bottle will be either 2009 or 2011. I will post my findings as soon as i got news.

    I now know there are only three Creed Boutiques in the world. Paris, New York, and Dubai ( Arabian ) I felt the same way you did when I received a recent purchased bottle of Creed Tabarome which just happened to be Arabian stock, until I did a little research. I have found that some of the Arabian Creed Fragrances are the best personally I've ever come accross. The middle east in places like Dubai, the people who can afford Creed take their fragrances very seriously, and have the money to spend. Original Vetiver I own lasts approximately 8 hours on me. All this talk about Sillage especially 2010 may be true, but don't give up on your quest for the perfect GIT, and don't give it a second thought if you receive a bottle from the middle east. Everything sold around the world should have all the markings both on box and bottle.

    No problem at all buddy! I hope your satisfied and get a 2011 batch. I have A42B11N01 from the Grey Market and it's powerful and fresh. I get noticed a lot when I wear it..women do love it. It's looking like 2011 is shaping up to be a good year for GIT! Let me know how you make out.


    Best wishes,

    Hey, I didn't know that Fragrancenet will offer you on an exchange if you are unsatisfied with the batch. That makes me feel a lot more comfortable ordering a 100ml for like $140.

    Just got a 4oz tester bottle from Scentiments through Amazon.

    Batch # A3210K02

    Previous GIT was from sample vials and I loved the smell. Strong fresh smell right from the start. Just tested this bottle out. Seems a little musky/manly right off the start. Not sure if I like this as much as my previous sample.

    Anyone have any info on this batch? Year? Good batch?

    I think I can return it if I choose, but am kinda torn on this one.

    Thanks guys!

    Unfortunatly for me, fragrance.net can't offer me an exchange because i'm outside U.S. Still, they refund me the entire bottle. I also include a receip of the price it cost me ( 18$) to ship it back to them and they refund it too!! Great service from them.

    I ordered a new bottle a few days ago and gonna see how it ends up. Gonna post back my experience.

    Hi micah323, you batch is a 2010 batch. I got the same year and returned mine for the same reasons you stated.

    Thanks Franksonic.

    I actually tried out the cologne again just a little bit ago. Shook the bottle, and it seemed to smell a little better...more like the scent I am used to.

    I emailed scentiments and asked about exchanging for a newer batch. If it isnt too much of a hassle I will go ahead and do that. If I cant I have to decide if I should stick with this bottle, or get a refund and order from another source.

    I have a little bit of GIT left in a tester bottle. Tomorrow I will put that on one wrist and the new stuff on the other. Head to work and see if others smell a difference in the two scents

    I wrote a post above about the 2010 batches. For some reason, most did not smell right....they were weak in sillage and very musky. I have a batch from 2011 A42B11N01 and it's much more potent and smells fresh. In fact I wore it out Saturday night to a Bar, and my friend Alicia said I smelled really good about 4 hours after I put it on. It seems like they are back on the right back for GIT, because let's face it...a good batch is masterpiece material...

    I hope so 2010 was a huge bust. My 2011 batch is a lot more potent.

    I had a similar batch (mine was A3210K01, though) and it was utterly awful. Flat, dank, and off-putting. I promptly returned it and received a 2011 batch, which is vastly better. I know some people adhere to the "Creed aging" theory, but for what you pay for a Creed one shouldn't have to wait and hope it magically improves. If they are willing to exchange it, I would definitely send that one back.

    Sorry if it has been covered, but does Beauty Encounter have the good 2011 batch? Price is pretty good at $148 shipped for a 4oz.

    Sorry guys I need a little help here. Today I walked passed a counter with Creeds all over the place so I was thinking to myself since I've tried Aventus awhile back, why not try the popular GIT as well. It took me like a minute looking at the bottles over and over again before I asked the SA if they had GIT. She took this transparent looking bottle (I would think it is http://www.essentialmall.com.au/Prod...0Irish%20Tweed) and I have to say it smells good! I didnt want to sound weird so I guess its better to ask you guys. I've seen someone here on BN trying to get a tester bottle and it looks the same. I was wondering if it looks like that because it was a tester and if I get a new bottle, would it be the black one which I see everywhere on pictures?

    Oh yes, since I am on it with a question, may I also ask if there is a way to look for 2011 bottles? I assume it starts with A42B?

    Thanks in advance!

    The 120ml GIT is a matt-black bottle whilst the 75ml is the transparent bottle with green labelling.

    You want to look at the 5th and 6th character so for example:

    A42B11xxxx will be a 2011 release
    A42B08xxxx will be a 2008 release

    I have three bottles from 2010 and like all of them. No issues for me. Maybe my nose isn't as refined as some.

    Hi - Just received my first Green Irish Tweed. I blind bought it from Walgreens.com and believe I got a good deal. They currently have a 20% off coupon code, so the cost shipped was $111 for the 4 oz. bottle. The Batch number on the bottle is s3211p02 - hopefully that's a good one! Anyway, I can't wait to try it this weekend. I'll be sure to report back.

    I got the same 20% off Walgreens deal before Christmas, it was too good to pass up, I noticed the regular price went up to $190 a few weeks ago, but is back down to $130, not sure what is going on over there. I was iffy about GIT but have not regretted buying it. It's pretty much a good everyday scent and feels much better quality than CW, which it does resemble a lot. I got the same batch, it has a very nice lemony top note, and does not seem to be too heavy on the violet. I think most folks like the 2011 batch better than 2010. I saw another post that someone got the same batch as us from the Paris Creed Boutique, so it's current. I does not seem to last very long, but someone complimented me the other day on it, hours after I had put it on and when it was hardly noticeable to me, and I had just walked up to her desk, and was several feet away, so I think it's stronger than I realize. I think I need to be careful with this.

    Thanks Puig - glad to hear you're liking it. I actually couldn't wait till I got home to try it. After my lunchtime workout and shower, I sprayed some on my arm before putting my shirt back on as I have never smelled GIT before. I'm really enjoying it - it's different than anything else I own.

    This is the same batch I have, and it is of high quality.

    Anyone know the walgreens coupone code? Also, is there return policy on fragrances similar to other online sellers.... i.e. return if you dont think it is a good batch?

    The coupon code is 20BEAUTY and today is the last day. From other posts here, they say you can make free returns at any Walgreens store.
