@ checker, Yeh the drydown is always wonderful...just the first 1 hour can be little difficult to wear.
One of my favorites. If I ever had to go down to just one bottle of something (scary thought!), It would be GIT.
Current Favorites - Creed Green Irish Tweed, Costume National Homme, Hanae Mori HiM EDP, Chanel Platinum Egoiste
I have to admit I went from feeling indifferent/neutral about GIT to enjoying it more and more. I'm glad I tried it again. The batch I have seems so rich and fragrant in comparison to a tester I had last year. I am curious to sample GIT at a Creed counter for the sake of comparison.
The bottle against the light trick worked! I have 45% left in my bottle. Is it considered heavy use if I went through 55% in a year's time?
This knockoff additive is supposed to be great for laundry and/or shower gel. I could see adding it to a bottle of Dr Bronner's Unscented soap and trying it out. Might be a good substitute for the official but tepid body wash.
Message from Creed:
"Perhaps the best known and most widely embraced of Olivier CREED's creations is Green Irish Tweed, the fresh verbena, violet leaf and sandalwood blend in a signature black bottle that evokes the sleek perfection of a Savile Row tuxedo jacket. Green Irish Tweed is beloved worldwide, but perhaps especially so by clients of Irish ancestry.
For St. Patrick's Day, the CEO of CREED North America presented bottles of Green Irish Tweed to the grand marshals of March 17 parades in Manhattan, Boston and Chicago. This celebratory day on the cusp of spring is made all the more enjoyable with the charmed air of Green Irish Tweed, perhaps the most versatile, popular and distinctive CREED fragrance of all."
Also, turn off all your lights and put your GIT bottle against a naked bulb, also does it.
Just bought a tester from fragrancenet. It is a little different then my early 2009 bottle but it's great to have a backup..
I think GIT is my year round fav..
GIT and Erolfa are great!!
It was previously mentioned that FP3209X01 is a good GIT batch? For others that have this FP3209X01 batch, just want to hear if they feel the same before I spend my hard earned money on it.
I couldn't see through either of my two black bottles either.
When I used a 20milliWatt saser, I could just see a glow through the top edge, but not enough to see the level of the liquid.
Perhaps we need to invest in an industrial strength laser?
i have a flacon of FP3209X01 (it's my workhorse scent). longevity is all right, though right now i don't remember how well it did in the summer. i lost about 50 ml or so in a horrible traveling accident, so i've gone through more of that flacon than i wish i had but i do dearly love my green irish tweed.
Does anyone find that Green Irish Tweed lasts much longer in the summer than the winter?
I experienced the full dry down for the first time today... Amazing! I usually don't spray my arm (just neck and chest)..but usually by the dry down I think my nose is fatigued from the scent... I sprayed some on my arm so I could smell it later and I'm so glad I did. No wonder why the girl followed me around the first time I wore this out...mmm
My 8oz flacon is arriving tomorrow!! First time I bought a single fragrance over 4oz. Really hope it will be better than my last 4oz batch of GIT>
I'll be the first to ask the saddest question ever lol. Just received my 8oz flacon of GIT.
But how do I open it???? Took out the leather wrap, and the glass / rubber top is tightly sealed. Is it a twist or pull? It feels like I'm going to shatter the bottle with the amount of force I had to use and it still won't budge!
It won't ruin or hurt the fragrance. Ivan isn't talking about putting it in over night.
That girl, that bottle, that mattress and me.
