    The bottle in normal lighting is a matte black, with almost a satin-y feel to it, if that makes sense. Granted it has to be a strong light and you have to hold the bottle almost directly on it, but there is a slight transparency to it. Nothing super clear, just enough that I can see the fragrance line. But when the light shines through it, it is a deep purple color.

    That makes sense. Yours matches mine. You got it from Neiman's so there's really no question, but I've been confused by people who have blatantly clear purplish bottles of GIT. They tend to think they've got the real deal. I'm also wondering about all these boxes with white trim instead of gold. Would Creed put out such different versions of packaging?

    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?

    A more more apt comparison on those terms might be, Cool Water is VHS and GIT is Beta Max. After all, they're both from the '80s.

    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

    Thanks for the video...although, she makes it seem like GIT (or "Irish Tweed" as she calls it) has been around since 1760...

    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???

    Mind sharing your lot number?

    FWIW The harsh opening seemed to fade on my bottles after a week or so since the initial spray.

    I have a 2.5 oz and its so hard to me to see the lot number, looks like A210A02, I got it about 4 months ago and the boutique said it just came in so does that help??

    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 think you're just trying to defend Creed and you're reaching a bit. Don't get me wrong. If you are happy with the different formulas of GIT that you've gotten, that's great and many people probably feel the same way. However, you have to realize that VARIANCE is always bad thing. It's something that manufacturers of all industries spend billions of dollars trying to avoid. In Creed's case, the variance might be tolerable, or it might be a worthwhile compromise for using the "freshest ingredients", but it's a compromise one way or another. It's always a risk and therefore a drawback every time someone buys a Creed bottle and expecting for it to smell like the store tester, decanted sample, your friend's bottle or your previous bottle. This isn't a pack of baseball cards we're talking about here. People don't want "unpredictable". It's a bottle of fragrance. They want to get what they think they're buying.

    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.

    I had a 2.5 oz GIT with the same lot number. I sold it here in the market place like 2 months ago because I didn't really need it. It also had a very hard to read lot number.

    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.

    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?
