    I got my bottle of A3212a02 from beauty encounter's sale yesterday and sprayed it on this morning. It is my first bottle of GIT but I think it smells fantastic!

    Hey Christian,
    I should have one from fragrancenet in 3-5 days and I will update this thread. I used a 20% off coupon so couldn't pass on it

    I've really been wanting to sample one of the 2012 batches. I may have to snag a bottle if that's what all the discounters have now.

    Received this bottle from lilydirect. Not satisfied. The juice is weak!!! It has a faint smell of GIT but not nearly as potent as im familar with. Def sending it back. Batch no say C3211X01. Its going back but just want to know if its a fake or bad juice.

    Just got mine today. Same batch number as the beautyencounter guy above A3212A02. Very satisfied. I have only owned samples and decants from perfumed court and this is legit.

    Yes. I got my bottle on 2/22/13. It smells great. I sprayed some on Friday around 6:30pm and still could smell it the next morning when I woke up around 8. My wife commented on it as well. She could smell it. Fragrancenet is legit.

    I ordered GIT from Fragrancenet back in May of last year and I'm very happy with my order. Got the previous year's batch and it smells great, as good, if not better than my samples. Longevity and projection is very good as well.

    Batch # A3211X03.

    Mine came in.... it's a P02, not what I was expecting.

    It appears to be an actual US retail version, no arabic text... has the lot # imprinted on the bottom of the bottle.

    Anyone know about this batch? It smells pretty good from the sprayer without having sprayed it.

    I just ordered a bottle from Beauty Encounter. I sampled GIT only once at the Scent Bar and really liked it. I'll let you all know what I end up with when I get it.

    My order of GIT just arrived from beauty encounter. It's a beautiful black bottle with the batch number A3212A02. It smells great!

    I am thinking about buying a GIT from cheapsmells. I emailed them today and they have the following options:

    The 75ml:

    Ref: 11075-32
    Lot: A3212A02

    The 120ml:

    Ref: 11120-32
    Lot: A3211U01


    Which batch should I buy?

    Thanks

    Based on this thread the A02 seems to be what everyone is raving over.

    I have the A02 and it is great! However, if you hear anything good about the other you should go for it. You might want the 120ml over the 75 ml.

    Default Re: The Official Creed Green Irish Tweed thread!

    I put the A02 batch on yesterday after receiving it from Beauty Encounter. At around 11am, I applied three small half sprays to my right arm and two full sprays to my neck.

    I was able to get nice whiffs of this fantastic smelling fragrance in the air as I moved around the office off and on all day at work until around 6pm. Then, I went to the gym and could still get nice whiffs of it in the air while I was working out from around 7pm until 8:30 pm. I went home and took a nice hot shower and applied lotion to my arms and was still able to smell the fragrance on my arm as a nice, faint (but distinctly noticeable) skin scent afterward and up until I went to bed at around midnight. This morning when I awakened, there was no sign of the fragrance on my skin whatsoever.

    No too shabby....not bad at all.

    Okay guys, something is bugging me--I have to ask. However, I will refrain from making a new thread about it.

    My GIT came in and the more I look at it next to the other Creed bottles, it appears that it's not as wide as the other two.

    Am I seeing things or can someone explain?

    There's something peculiar about the middle bottle. I can't quite put my finger on it.

    It smells great. I'm not asking because I think it's a fake.

    To me the bottle seems to have a slightly different measurement to the other bottles. Just figured somebody would either A] Tell me I'm seeing things or B] Inform me of something about GIT.

    The GIT is fine, it's the other bottles that are to wide. Clearly those are the fakes.

    I see what you're talking about in the pic where they're standing next to each other.

    I think it might be because it's all black?

    This is kind of making me want to go check mine now lol

    I think it's the clear of the other bottles making them appear to be wider (to the naked eyed).

    The obvious thing to do would be to measure it...

    The eyes play funny tricks on us sometimes. Most likely an illusion due to the dark vs clear.

    If you got it from Fragrancenet, then it's not fake.

    I bought one from them about two months ago and it was a 2012 batch. It's very good and for once I get the citrus in the opening. Don't recall the exact batch number but I can get it later on if anyone wants it. They did run out of stock a couple of days after I got mine, so I wonder if they've since had a different batch delivered to them.

    I have tested my A02 batch for a couple days and it seems im getting 6 to 8 hours on my skin. Not bad at all.

    I have some left over from my 2008 batch and when comparing the two, my '08 bottle seems to have a more harsh opening, but they dry down the same. Gorgeous scents.

    Kind of off topic from the current conversation but, I got a 10ml sample of batch# C3211X02 and I'm somewhat disappointed.
    I just get a empty freshness that doesn't do much for me. All I can think of is cool water (which I am not a fan of) and no "green" whatsoever.
    I was really excited to try this scent after all the hype I've read about it here.
    Maybe I'm better off not having to drop $150+ now... oh well

    So I bought a bottle of GIT from cheapsmells, the 120ml bottle - A3211U01.

    My question is when I first tried to spray the fragrance nothing came out, even after pressing the spray head some 30+ times. In the end I took it off then put it back on and it still took another 10 or so presses for anything to come out.

    Is that normal?

    It does take a few pumps to prime the sprayer but 40! sounds excessive. Well at least you know it wasnt sprayed before!

    enjoy

    Sometimes takes a few pumps to get them going, but that sounds a bit excessive.

    Is it pumping out the juice like a waterfall now?

    Main thing, does it smell good?
    Well, it's cheaper than therapy... edit: No it's not...

    I would say that's a bit excessive to get it pumping.

    Is the spray working well now or is it inconsistent? You might have a bad atomizer mechanism.

    Well I ordered mine about a week ago. It is U01, this is my first Creed GIT so I have no reference but it seems to last a long time. I put two sprays on my neck yesterday at 3pm and could smell it when I was in bed at midnight. When I woke up in the middle of the night and then again this morning I could still smell it.

    Yeah, it smells good. I've only sprayed it twice but I think it is working OK

    Seems to be OK. The box and bottle were in mint condition so I hope it wasn't damaged in any way.

    Dailey / All,

    Here's my 2 pennies worth on batch A3211X01...

    Ordered mine 2 weeks ago from cheapsmells.com. Bottle was legit (as you'd expect from cheapsmells) and was originally destined to live under more arabian skies, with the arabic information leaflet etc.. (again, more or less expected with discounted online stock). Initial impressions were pretty good, with the same quality opening that I had with my previous 2 bottles, which were both from house of fraser (i don't have the batch #s for these unfortunately). The issue for me is with the longevity of the juice... It's been a while since I had the previous 2 bottles, but with those I remember getting up to 6 or 7 hours of projection, often waking up in the morning and still being able to smell it. With this batch, I can barely smell it after 2 or 3 hours, unless I sniff very close to my skin...

    Now trying to decide whether or not to send mine back. Has anyone else had this batch?

    Cheers
