    I'd say so, and it's quite strong. I put on two sprays at 4 pm this afternoon in the upstairs bathroom, and a friend could smell it instantly when she opened the front door at 6pm. I was in a different room.

    testing GIT for the first time today and my first creed, to be honest i'm not crazy about this fragrance at the moment and dont see all the hype but i think its one of those fragrances that will grow on me as i like it more and more as it drys down. Have to give it more testing though

    GIT will grow on you and I like the drydown waaay more than the opening. The opening actually makes me a little sick sometimes. You should give it at least 5-10 full wearings before you make up your mind on GIT. I recommend spraying the opposite side of both your elbows + 1 to the chest. Also, it's not a good winter fragrance unless you're indoors a lot.

    I have a bottle of the S3211P02 lot, from 2011, matches a known lot from the Creed boutique in Paris mentioned in another thread. I don't find it weak on me, I have had comments on it when I can't even smell it anymore. GIT is one of those fragrances which projects more than you think. It seems more than a few folks bought this blind, which I don't quite get, kind of a high risk even at a discount.

    I have this same batch and I was comparing the bottle of this along with a bottle of batch A3211U01. The A3211U01 bottle is etched on the back with "Toilet Water PGS A3211U01" along with the ingredient list and "Made in France". It also has an Arabic sticker on the bottom.

    The S3211P02 bottle has nothing at all on the back and the bottom has the lot number stamped, not etched. It has no Arabic sticker. Is it common for there to be bottle variations like this?

    I also did a side-be-side test of both batches. I expected them to be identical but as good as the A3211U01 batch is, the S3211P02 lot is slightly stronger.

    I have the U01 and mine also has same prints and what not. I like it. I think it's pretty potent and strong. Lasts a long time on me. It does have a very potent violet opening but it eventually tones down. I didn't take part in the Walgreens deal because I use GIT but I will wear it more in spring/summer. I use Aventus like water so I stock up on that one. If only they had two bottles of Aventus for $167 lol.

    I find that GIT in the winter has a wonderfully fresh feeling to it. Last night as my fiance and I were on our way to the car she commented how she caught a whiff of my GIT, and how nice it is. Amazing how one fragrance can have such an impact, especially on women.

    Question for those with 2011 batches: Would you describe the scent as green, damp, and maybe a little dark? Like you're strolling through a wet Irish hillside on a cloudy rainy morning?

    That's how mine smells and I'm pretty sure mine is a 2010 (Lot number was shaved off). Mine unfortunately is not strong like the 2011 seems to be. In fact, it's pretty average in strength and lasts 6 or so hours.

    My A3211P03 batch opens with a huge blast of violet leaf freshness. Like I've said, a bit too strong IMO... almost sickening. I need to hold my breath and walk away from the area where I sprayed. Then after about 10 minutes, it starts to settle down. Violet leaves are still strong throughout, but the other notes start to smoothly get mixed in. An hour in, it smells absolutely amazing. 4-5 hours in, it starts to diminish in potency but will still linger and last for many more hours.

    I don't get too much damp moss or darkness. Maybe some of it in the opening but the fresh, strong blast of violet leaves is what I smell the most.

    Definately Green, Fresh. Dark? probably not. I'll describe this from a review I heard which I agree. More fizzy, like popping open a cold can of of Lemon Lime Soda on a very hot and humid day, and you can feel the carbonation and freshness from the can aticipating the freshness from the can. I think this is probably as close to me as it gets to describing this wonderful Scent.

  26. #506

    Default Re: The Official Creed Green Irish Tweed thread!

    I agree with all of these descriptions. The viliet is very potent in mine also. It kind of stinks bc although I like GIT, I don't "omg love it" like I do Aventus. The difference is---GIT wears so well on me, it literally wears for 12 hours still strong but I just don't get that "wow" factor from it. Don't get me wrong, by no means am I bashing it, I do like it a lot just wish other creed fragrances wore the same on me as GIT. But to answer the question, I think of the color purple when I wear it. One bottle will last me awhile but I can see how this could be someone's signature scent

  27. #507

    Default Re: The Official Creed Green Irish Tweed thread!

    I'm wearing it right now. It does smell mighty fine right now. It's a great switch up from my aventus or MI. Question to everyone--- has anyone tried Bleeker Street? If so how is it?

    This stuff is a projection monster on me. The cologne trail coming off my neck is the same as looking at gas fumes coming off the ground lol. It just wears well with my chemistry. Actually so does aventus and MI from creed.

    Really??? My GIT has moderate projection. It's nowhere near as potent as my Aventus.

    My 2011 GIT does project pretty darn well, moreso than the 2008 and 2009 batches I have. Not as much as Aventus, nor does it project as long, but still, pretty impressive

    Yea it does. It must just work really good with my body chemistry. I also have a 2011 batch but honestly it projects awesome. I would say MORE than my aventus longer throughout, but aventus projects harder the 1st hour on

    I just picked up a 4oz bottle of GIT from a local discount shop for $130. I was on the fence for the longest time because I thought it was too similar to Cool Water. Man, was I wrong. It's so different when wearing it. Very classy stuff. Oh, I tried a few samples from 2010 and the bottle I have is from 2011--the 2011 is MUCH stronger and better. Very nice stuff indeed.

    Currently my only bottle is GIT, very versatile strong scent. (Though I have Blue Sugar on the way) I've gotten a compliment the other day at the bowling alley and again at Target, lol. I kinda wish it was a bottle of SMW, but oh well. People who think this smells like CW has no business on this board, as they are obviously hard of smelling.
    WTT: Creed SMW for Creed GIT.

    My 2011 does smell like a wet Irish hillside (not really, but I get the comparison). However, I think maybe the batch variations of GIT are a bit . . . overstated.

    You guys are so freaking lucky! I got mine this January from Walgreens. It's the 2010 batch and while it's not bad the longevity and sillage are definitely weak (weaker than some of my designers). So basically you're telling me that if I waited just a bit I could have gotten the 2011 batch? FUUUUUUUUCK lol.

    No sorry. I haven't noticed a pattern when they offer the sale. Check the discounts forum, and check around holidays. I'm sure when the sale does show up, one of us will post it to help others out.

    What do you expect from them? That they come and say "Don't buy the 2010 batch, they are bad!" ?? No. Hopefully they know by now from reading these threads and they'll try the best to do better job in the future.

    that is just flat-out wrong.

    representatives from CREED have ALWAYS admitted to there being natural variations in their fragrance due to the changing nature of sourcing ingredients. they (and i) consider it a selling point and something to enjoy. if you don't believe me, call the Creed Boutique in NYC and ask them about it.

    it's only some people on this website that consider it a negative and go apeshit about it...

    I'm wearing GIT today and it's amazing. I'm getting great longevity out of it today. However, it doesn't have monster sillage, but rather sits faint and delicately, which I'm really starting to like a lot. It's not bold and loud. This is quickly becoming my signature scent, next to Aventus.

  54. #534

    Default Re: The Official Creed Green Irish Tweed thread!

    Aventus is better. GIT is harsh. It's too strong IMO. I only sprayed two sprays and it fills up my whole office. I like it but think every month it's getting effin stronger. Maybe I'm just having a bad day. FML

    What year was your bottle made? I have 2011 and agree that it's strong, but nothing like the original Polo or Montale's Black Aoud. Both of these scents are powerhouses on me and crank out huge siliage and longevity. What I personally like about GIT is it's strong, but not overbearing.

    That's awesome. I'll be excited to wear it in the summer. It's weird though, sometimes GIT starts out real strong(sometimes can't even stand the strength) and then it dries down to a smell of fragrance after being sight in a rainstorm. Kinda like (candies cologne) after being caught in a rain shower

    I got a sample of this and I knew I had to get a full bottle. Unfortunely I had the bad fortune to get a fake off of ebay...fortunately the guy refunded me in full (only had to pay for return shipping), said he didn't know they were fake, but he's still listing them on ebay...(is there a way to report this?) Now he has pretty good feedback for other transactions, but this was a bad fake GIT. Eh, anyways I'll be using my refunded money to buy straight from amazon since they seem to have the best price right now that I can trust. Can't Wait!
