GIT is too much of an old man smell for me.
Everyone is somebody's weirdo.
An NM SA told me that if you spray a vampire with GIT it will burn them due to the extremely high purity of the ingredients. Could this explain the many complaints by some about GIT having a "harsh" opening? I don't want to even think about what might happen with Silver Mountain Water.
I love GIT however after having about 3 full bottles in the last four years I traded one away.
I see that there are some differences between batches and years and etc...
I am sick of it I want consistency,
I just ordered a Tester on fragrancenet and I love it, It isnt as dusty violet as the two other bottle I have had.
And now I order a 4.0 ounce from fragrancenet.com is one batch away my tester is F01.
The 4.0 ounce is F02 but the 4.0 ounce bottle is obviously a grey market arabic bottle marked "Toilet Water PGS" on box and back of the bottle.
Not only does it say TOILET WATER PGS on the bottle is has ingredients etched in the back of bottle as well.
I am returning it because it smells exactly like my 2 year old bottle of GIT and it has a dusty musty violet note and the etchings on the bottle toilet water PGS dont make any sense to me.
Anyone else notice this? or know what toilet water PGS means?
I've never really experienced wildly different batch variations with Creed. There have been some minor differences here or there, but nothing to cry over. In fact, they're usually pleasant. So what if one GIT has a little extra dihydromyrcenol? Or a heavier sandalwood/ambergris base? That's the charm of the fragrance, and of Creed. Not a damning point. Do you think every years' vintage champagne is the same? When one year has a little extra sweetness, and another is super dry, do you think wine connoisseurs get angry over it?
If you want consistency, buy designer frags, and enjoy that utterly predictable and long-term snore of an experience. I like the batch inconsistencies, minor as they are, and hope this aspect of Creed's production never changes. Because if and when it does, it won't be for the better. The infusion technique will go out the window and be replaced with 100% chemicals, which of course will always be consistent. And then people will just be bitching about that.
Apologies to all Creed Haters, but Green Irish Tweed is Fantastic, YES it resembles Cool Water, however much Better, If both fragrances could be translated into a Video Format, I would say Cool water would have a VHS quality in a another hand Green Irish Tweed will have the stoning graphics that only could have been achieved via Blu Ray quality. Unfortunately Creed has implemented lately an Increase of € 20,00 on top of all of its range, allegedly reason for such increase, was that costs with Raw Materials have been equally increased, Well, that really makes me wonder:
- How could possibly all raw materials, have had their prices increased simontaniously worldwide?

i really hate to say it but its the ultimate manly frag. based on the ingredients, it's MAN all the way, regardless of age. it's mature, but that in no way detracts from it's composition and balance as a frag.
well done on this one, Creed

What does the lot number signify? My code is A3208E02 on a 4 ounce bottle of GIT, black bottle.
It means your bottle is from 2008. The two numbers for GIT after the A32 indicate the year. The E02 is the batch number for that year. Some dispute this decoding but I have seen enough that I buy it. My bottle is A3210F01. GIT smells better as it ages to a point. Your 2008 version is likely pretty potent.
Has anyone ordered GIT from fragrancenet since it's come back in stock recently? I wanted to place an order but wanted to get an idea of the batch I might be receiving.
I don't know about the batch inconsistences being minor. I recently bought a bottle from the creed boutique and it has an extremelly harsh opening and the sillage is minimal compared to bottles that I had In the past. So what do I do? Let it sit for a time and it will get better???
SoLippy.co.uk is selling the GIT and OV for about 130€ (170$), do you think it is the real stuff?
$170 seems like a reasonable price for GIT online.
I got a GIT decant, smelled great, longevity was great.
I bought a bottle, smelled even better, but longevity was ass. If I had a choice, I'd take my decant batch any day.
Still satisfied with my purchase, but not 100% thrilled. I'll probably still buy GIT again once mine runs out.

Directly comparing my 4 oz from 2001, the 2010 bottle had noticeably less sillage than the 2001 bottle. I called the boutique and they said it can take several months AFTER THE FIRST spray for "millesimes to age, just like good wines" and get more potent according to the specialist. He said spraying it allows more oxygen to enter and causes oxidation to age it. Also, just as a note, they said the fragrance can last up to 14 years or more before going rancid.
Hey folks I decided to buy a 40z bottle that will arrive tomorrow the batch is A3210k01 anyone have this and if so how is it?
whats the difference between git for men and git for women?
There is none, its the same fragrance, it's just that some internet sites have it as a Woman and/or Male section.
Got my bottle of GIT today batch #A3210K01 and it smells terribly synthetic, with no sillage...a terrible mess. It's from 2010 so what should I do? Hope it gets better?
