    Hi Martin, I eventually managed to open the flacon. 15 minutes of freezer and a towel around the stopper. It felt like something just snapped apart. If there's meant to be soft rubber around the stopper then it's definitely not there / hardened. Unfortunately the bigger issue is I'm very concerned with the fragrance itself.

    I've compared over the past 12 hours.

    * 4oz GIT (my old bottle)
    * 8oz GIT (the new bottle I've just opened)
    * Davidoff Cool Water (CW) from a local pharmacy

    New 8oz smells horribly like CW with only a tiny touch of GIT difference. New 8oz bottle juice fades in very similar amount of time with CW. Warm, floral, almost no citrus, nice but nothing very special. Their similarities lead me to believe I received a flacon of GIT with 1/3 real juice at the bottom with the rest filled with CW.

    Since I've tried CW vs my 4oz GIT so many time I can tell the differences. Think I'm going into depressed mode

    Sniffa, Glad you got the flacon open. There is no rubber at all, just glass on glass. I'm a bit surprised you came to that conclusion! I have a larger flacon of GIT from the same source with the same lot# (I think) and I do not share your concerns. I also have a number of other Creed flacons to compare what I received and there is nothing amiss whatsoever. Just for fun tonight I poured a 2ml carded sample of GIT I received from the NYC Boutique into a small atomizer and sprayed myself liberally. Same fragrance as what's in my flacon. What on Earth are you Sniffing Sniffa? Best wishes! Martin

    Is it possible that GIT or other perfume in general after sitting on a shelf for a long time. That I need to shake the bottle to stir up any GIT particle that has settle over time at the bottom of the flacon? Does this happen?

    I received my flacon and move it around a little but didn't shake it, then just put it in freezer, opened it and poured it into atomizer. It'll be interesting to hear from people that knows about this.

    i've had three different bottles of GIT over the past 15 years.

    "citrus" is not a term i would use to describe GIT. "warm", yes. "floral", yes.

    "citrus"? no.

    where did you get it from again? the boutique? online store or NYC store?

    I don't know maybe it just needs a shake to bring GIT stuff to the top before I pour it. Of course until someone here comes and prove me wrong. The bottle I got from FragranceNet a year ago, however. All the girls at the office just couldn't stop smiling when they got close to me. Even if I over apply my new GIT it disappears in 2 and a half hours where as the other GIT lasts up to 6 hours or more and still smells amazing when over applied.

    Actually I'm just tempted to pour what's in the atomizer back into the flacon, shake it real thorough and pour it back into the atomizer. What do you think? I actually considered pouring what's in the atomizer down the drain and fill it with what's left in the flacon. It's that dull and boring.

    okay i wouldn't do any of those options!

    it doesn't need to be "shaken"! it's not iced tea... it got plenty of sloshing around during transit. perfumes are micro-level complex-chained chemical mixtures... any kind of "settling" of ingredients just doesn't happen.

    looks like you have the most recent "batch" of GIT. trust me when i say that it will smell very very different a year from now, three years from now, five years from now. you have very young juice. it's not "bad", it just hasn't really bloomed yet.

    i got a very recent bottle of Millesime Imperial last year. one of the first from the 2010 batch. when i first sprayed it, i thought i had been ripped off (by the creed boutique, no less!). it smelled like straight rubbing alcohol. barely any actual "fragrance" in it at all. i literally couldn't smell it after 10 minutes. i called the boutique, furious, and they explained how young it was, and to put it aside for a while and continue to use up my current bottle.

    i did that, and just came back to that bottle i bought last year. it is now absolutely beautiful. very floral, very fragrant, very long-lasting. by far the best MI i've ever had (this is my 4th bottle going back about 15 years).

    i know this sounds crazy, but it's a GOOD thing that you have such young juice. it will last much longer. you have opened it, so it has some exposure to air (but try to keep it close from now on). it will now start to age, and open up. enjoy it man, it's kind of cool to watch (well, smell).

    do you have any more of your old bottle? if so, great, continue to use that. in fact, layer the two. put a spray or two of your old bottle, then a spray or two from your new batch from the atomizer. then, every month or so, do a "check-up" of your new GIT on its own. I guarantee you, you will be pleased.

    be happy you got such fresh juice. if you had gotten a 5 year old flacon, it might smell better now, but it would probably start to go skank before you're done with the bottle. with this, you are assured great GIT for the life of the bottle (well, except for a little while at the beginning!)

    be patient. good things come to those who wait.

    GIT was my first niche fragrance over two years ago and I have 75ml in the old clear bottle. I have only worn it several times as I was buying and trying a lot of other fragrances. Well I have recently revisted the scent and its fantastic and so gorgeous from the opening to the drydown.

    The thing is this got me thinking why have I not been using this that often as I have virtually a full bottle and it seems better now than it did a few years ago which is weird. Do Creeds get better with age?

    Interesting. I got my first bottle of GIT for Christmas and as much as I love it, I found both the silage and longevity very poor. I'm hoping this is due to the "young juice" theory.

    Thanks Topsail, I got a little carreid away but just had to throw it out there as there isn't much information online about what I asked.

    The flacon is FP3209X01 (FP = ? / 32 = GIT / 09 = year? / X01 ?), I think it's 2009 bottle.

    Yes, 2009. The X01, I'm not certain but I'm thinking it means batch 1 for 2009. Sniffa, I'm sending a nice sample of our juice to an independent evaluator! Regardless, I love the juice in my flacon. It exceeds my expectations. I wore it to work this afternoon. It has great "bloom" that I can smell as soon as I spray myself with it. Good longevity too.

    Hi Martin, if you have a chance to try 2009 X03, tell me what you think. It's way more amazing in my personal opinion. Would love to hear your thoughts. I can't tell you enough how many of my favorite ladies at work loves it. I do hope that this X01 will mature in a few months, I bought it to wear it now not in a year or two. So when I have more money, I'll get another 4oz from FragranceNet.

    Thanks anyway though for your good intention and advise. To be honest, my X03 didn't smell as good in the first week, and 3 months later it smells so much different. Thought it did last longer.

    Yeh I just got my bottle of GIT from the boutique, it's extremely synthetic and barely has any lasting power...I'm hoping it smells better in the months to come.

    Just received a sample of GIT from Jazznpool aka Martin today and it smells amazing! It smells extremely fresh from top to bottom. This is what GIT should smell like! Thanks again Martin!

    Sometimes I think GIT is to good to wear as it is gorgeous and wears a bit thick and heavy and it never fails to get me noticed. And because of this it feels like GIT is wearing me as it leaves a trail everywhere you go especially in the first few hours of spraying it on. I am trying to wear this more often as I have nearly a full bottle but you cannot wear it discreetly.

    Jack Hunter - I always respect what you say but this is GIT as you sure you got the right one on? If so there is definitely a batch issue at Creeds.

    Wait a minute let me just check and get back to you.............. I think I may have mistaken Kouros for GIT, how did that happen.lol

    Seriously though what I have said is just from my experience if it was awful or off I would say so. So as many others have found its Creed with their batch issues.

    The violet leaf and lemon verbena are fantastic and very natural smelling, but there is also something metallic, probably the iris. GIT is my favorite cologne on a man hands down. It wears well all year long. It's casual yet dressy. The gentleman in the country description really appeals to me, and I wear Royal Scottish Lavender (very unisex) for that reason. The Creed base is my favorite. I can quickly smell the ambergris following the opening notes. There is a crabapple smell that pairs beautifully with the base notes. Cool Water is too sporty for me; I always get the impression of a magazine smelling strip with it. GIT is much more multi-dimensional and well-composed to me. Also, I think Creeds are for people who appreciate close to skin scents. GIT and RSL are both best for daytime wear. By the end of the day, they blend well with my skin and smell like I just showered.

    Green Irish Tweed is to Cool Water as an authentic Neopolitan pizza baked in a stone oven is to a Pillsbury Pizza Mini cooked in a microwave.

    While they may be similar, only one of them is fit for a king.

    Green Irish Tweed is the same amazing fragrance, with or without the existence of Cool Water.

    2009. There's a thread about the lot number meaning. Also, it was in 2009 I think when they added the felt/material sticker to some of the bottles. older ones don't have stickers

    I'm trying to find out what that metallic note is! I've been searching high and low...trying different frags which emphasize violet leaf, iris, verbena... I think it's just the combination of it all that gives it that unique metallic note.

    I need to correct my last post about the GIT I bought, the smell has changed and is better than before. I still like the bottle I bought from FragranceNet a lot better.

    Fragrancenet had the black bottles in stock a few days ago but now it's all gone. If anyone bought it let us know what you think.

    Yes, fragrance net is out but I am worried that perfume emporium has not got a sterling reputation. Wish Allshewants still had it on ebay. Been about two years since I went online to grab a bottle and wow, the number of bottles that are available on EEEbay has great diminished. Guess that is the crackdown going on. Need to grab a bottle now since I have 2.5 ounces left, and this is my favorite. Anyone know a great deal, PM me?

    This means you have a real bottle. Transparent bottles, even if only so when held up to light, are fake.

    Mine is 100% legit and I can see through it. Interestingly enough, I can see right through my bottle of Virgin Isalnd Water when I hold it up to the light, too!!!!!!!!
