    Finally signed up for an account and bought a 17 oz Flacon of GIT. I bought the 17 oz because I know for a fact that I would be using this for a long time and also open to trades. I have used Curve for men for the longest, switched to Bond Riverside Drive but always loved the scent of GIT. I should be getting the Flacon soon.

    Welcome aboard BN Mont. Who did you purchase the 500ml flacon from? With a decent atomizer, your juice will go a long, long way. I keep my flacon stored in its original box. I hope you're happy with what you receive.

    Hi there

    I heard George Clooney wore this. On him it would be an instant panty-dropper. :-)

    It wouldn't be in my top 5 for dudes, but maybe in the top 10, there are others that are much more...um...effective! And agreed - Erwin Creed is SMOKIN hot.....thud.

    I think on the right person who can carry it off - they will wear it and not have it wear them....their confidence will make them more attractive anyway.

    hope that helps!

    Don't know what it is with GIT, but I never liked it. I've worn OV on/off for a couple of years and then more recently got into Aventus. I'll be getting my first full bottle this weekend It feels more refined to me than GIT or OV, but I guess time will tell...

    Purchased it from Nordstrom's in South Coast Plaza. Neimann Marcus in Fashion Island did not have anymore 17 oz Flacons. From what the Salesman in Neimann said, Creed no longer makes 17 oz Flacons. Hopefully he is misinformed.

    It's funny because I haven't been on Basenotes for a few years so I decided to check in today to see how things are now. It appears that GIT is still quite popular here as it was 6-7 years ago. I still have my 4 oz. bottle from 2005 when scentiments was selling testers for $50. Girls still love it when I wear it.

    I'll just throw this out in the hopes someone may come across it and respond.

    I have a flacon of 1996/97 vintage that is well preserved - about half full now, and I wonder if anyone here can comment on whether there is significant difference between mid 90s GIT and the current release? I have read that GIT had some sandalwood in the base (presumably mysore in the good old days) and if that has been lost now?

    I try the odd spritz of GIT at the counter and it still smells great but I haven't bought one and done a decent side by side (yet). Not life and death, just wondering - any thoughts? Many thanks.

    I'd be willing to swap you a 10ml glass spray of mine for 10ml glass spray of yours for comparison. I have a 2009 500ml flacon of GIT that I believe is as good as can be had today. Mind you I've only compared it to other contemporary lots, many of which were on carded samples.

    Hey Mont, Teri and Aaron will take care of you if your flacon leaked in transit. I had a similar thing happend with another Creed fragrance from them. I hope it wasn't too bad. I'm a stickler for requesting that my flacons be shipped standing up, labelled on top, and, preferralbly with arrows pointing up on all sides of the box.

    Ordered another bottle of GIT (4 oz, 185$) earlier this week, this time from TopParfumerie.eu. The one I got from SoLippy.uk (4 oz, 180$) just doesn't feel right, I mean the bottle is legit and the box was right(with the gold trimmings) without any miss spellings. The scent is FANTASTIC when I smell it from the sprayer, but when I spray it on my skin it just smells like piss, and it lasts only about 2-2,5 hours. Well, I can't be 100% sure that they sold me fake but it's starting to feel that way... Just have to wait how the TopParfumerie bottle smells like.

    Hi Montego - where did you order this from, and do they ship to the UK?

    I got my 30ml's from http://www.creedfragrances.co.uk/ you get 2 free samples with your order. The 2011 batch I got is better than my 2008 sample.

    Okay I'm confused here. What is it that I'm smelling in GIT, is it violet or is it violet leaf? The creed boutique lists violet leaves, and on Fragrantica, violet (the actual flower) is rated as the dominant note.

    I assumed it was the actual flower because GIT smells deeply floral to me.

    This is pretty interesting, I got a new flacon this morning for the latest split and they've gone back to the rich greeny yellow juice instead of the clear stuff from 09/10. The batch is C3211P01 and the violet is alot more prominant than the stuff from last year.

    I thought the last couple of years have been dissapointing for GIT but this is back on track and more akin to my bottle from 2008. I'll post a pic up later on my split topic.

    I have a batch from 2010 and it's not as rich as the bottles I've had In the past. If its true that the 2011 batch smells great then the theory they creeds get better with age is a false claim. Like to hear your thoughts more on this batch, does it last??

    I have a bottle from 2008 and the best thing about it is it's rich thick violet note which is the best thing for me about GIT. To hear this years batches are back on track is good news indeed.

    I think from my experience of Green Irish Tweed and my bottles in the past it does get more potent with better longevity after a certain period. Considering how good these are from the start this is a batch I'm very happy to send out to people. I've bottled it up now so humpty will have to let you know on the longevity of it.

    Its the same for me, I always associate a strong violet with Green Irish Tweed. Its one note I could never tire of.

    There are 500ml flacons of same lot# available from the source in Florida that I gave you a while back and the price is unbeatable. I bought 2 of them, so I'm in real good shape with GIT.

    Folks,


    Just wanted to let you know, the creed boutique In NYC is getting new 4 oz bottles of GIT tomorrow, hopefully they are batches from 2011. I want back the intense rich opening and the prominent violet notes. My 2010 bottle has neither yet i still get compliments on it.

    I just received my sample today. I am smelling this for the first time.

    Conclusion:

    Opened up with a typical green powdery scent. I almost want to say it reminds me of the reformulated Giorgio BH or a real old green pine scent from the 70's.

    The dry down however is very different and WAY more classy than similar types of fragrances. Sweet yet with a hint of green and some other mild herb I can't place at the moment.

    The dry down reminds me of a mix of stale white wine with crushed flower petals.

    Safe classic and mild are the adjectives I would use to describe it. Nothing stands out as bold or exciting...just a nice smelling classic scent that knows how to behave...not for me and not worth the high price in my opinion.

    This is the batch of GIT I have and it's definately potent. Probably the best batch of GIT I've ever owned because of it's longevity. It's not as sweet as some of the batches I've owned and tried.

    Just like a Hershey Bar kinda smells like fine Belgian chocolate - there are similarities, sure - but that's about it.

    GIT is the best all-around fragrance ever in my opinion.

    Yeh this batch doesn't have that harsh opening many of the 2010 batches had. The lemon and verbena at the top are rich and potent. Ill said it before and I'll say it again, when GIT is on...it's an incredible fragrance.
