    It smells great. I'm not asking because I think it's a fake.

    To me the bottle seems to have a slightly different measurement to the other bottles. Just figured somebody would either A] Tell me I'm seeing things or B] Inform me of something about GIT.

    The GIT is fine, it's the other bottles that are to wide. Clearly those are the fakes.

    I see what you're talking about in the pic where they're standing next to each other.

    I think it might be because it's all black?

    This is kind of making me want to go check mine now lol

    Guys, I am just about to pull the trigger on a 120ml Batch A3211X01, but have seen quite a few comments about this batch having particularly poor projection/Longevity. Can anybody who owns/has ownded add any incite? Many thanks

    I think it's the clear of the other bottles making them appear to be wider (to the naked eyed).

    Here's a shot of all four together:

    The obvious thing to do would be to measure it...

    The eyes play funny tricks on us sometimes. Most likely an illusion due to the dark vs clear.

    It's not even worth the hassle. I know it's real.... just got an illusion at first I guess.

    It would have been less hassle than taking numerous photos and posting here, though....

    I think the one poster saying they were fake kind of sparked my interest in seeing it through.

    If you got it from Fragrancenet, then it's not fake.

    I bought one from them about two months ago and it was a 2012 batch. It's very good and for once I get the citrus in the opening. Don't recall the exact batch number but I can get it later on if anyone wants it. They did run out of stock a couple of days after I got mine, so I wonder if they've since had a different batch delivered to them.

    I have tested my A02 batch for a couple days and it seems im getting 6 to 8 hours on my skin. Not bad at all.

    I have some left over from my 2008 batch and when comparing the two, my '08 bottle seems to have a more harsh opening, but they dry down the same. Gorgeous scents.

    Kind of off topic from the current conversation but, I got a 10ml sample of batch# C3211X02 and I'm somewhat disappointed.
    I just get a empty freshness that doesn't do much for me. All I can think of is cool water (which I am not a fan of) and no "green" whatsoever.
    I was really excited to try this scent after all the hype I've read about it here.
    Maybe I'm better off not having to drop $150+ now... oh well

    So I bought a bottle of GIT from cheapsmells, the 120ml bottle - A3211U01.

    My question is when I first tried to spray the fragrance nothing came out, even after pressing the spray head some 30+ times. In the end I took it off then put it back on and it still took another 10 or so presses for anything to come out.

    Is that normal?

    It does take a few pumps to prime the sprayer but 40! sounds excessive. Well at least you know it wasnt sprayed before!

    enjoy

    Sometimes takes a few pumps to get them going, but that sounds a bit excessive.

    Is it pumping out the juice like a waterfall now?

    Main thing, does it smell good?
    Well, it's cheaper than therapy... edit: No it's not...

    I would say that's a bit excessive to get it pumping.

    Is the spray working well now or is it inconsistent? You might have a bad atomizer mechanism.

    Well I ordered mine about a week ago. It is U01, this is my first Creed GIT so I have no reference but it seems to last a long time. I put two sprays on my neck yesterday at 3pm and could smell it when I was in bed at midnight. When I woke up in the middle of the night and then again this morning I could still smell it.

    Yeah, it smells good. I've only sprayed it twice but I think it is working OK

    Seems to be OK. The box and bottle were in mint condition so I hope it wasn't damaged in any way.

    Dailey / All,

    Here's my 2 pennies worth on batch A3211X01...

    Ordered mine 2 weeks ago from cheapsmells.com. Bottle was legit (as you'd expect from cheapsmells) and was originally destined to live under more arabian skies, with the arabic information leaflet etc.. (again, more or less expected with discounted online stock). Initial impressions were pretty good, with the same quality opening that I had with my previous 2 bottles, which were both from house of fraser (i don't have the batch #s for these unfortunately). The issue for me is with the longevity of the juice... It's been a while since I had the previous 2 bottles, but with those I remember getting up to 6 or 7 hours of projection, often waking up in the morning and still being able to smell it. With this batch, I can barely smell it after 2 or 3 hours, unless I sniff very close to my skin...

    Now trying to decide whether or not to send mine back. Has anyone else had this batch?

    Cheers
