Thread: Green Irish Tweed?
I just bought me another decants, first one was Aventus which I love, and then I got GIT.
Now for a Creed the Aventus last pretty decent and projects pretty well, but this GIT barely last at all and doesn't project really well.
The smell alright, I'm wondering if any of wonder if some decants could be cut with water or alcohol...I'm hoping this isn't the case and this is just GIT being GIT because I am kinda disappointed with all the hype.
Have no idea what the year of mine is but, projection is average and longevity pretty good.
This is why i'll never own a creed fragrance. I'm not running around hoping to get a good batch of something at those prices. At what they charge things should be consistent
I have no problems with GIT.
I get good projection and good longevity from GIT, then again they do vary from batch to batch which I also think is ridiculous for the price you pay.
Seems batch variation is the key here, sadly.
I have a 2011 from Fragrancex - and that juice is just absurdly strong. It DOES vary with how much your skin eats etc - moisturize like a boss to get extra longevity!
Anyways - batch variation (sadly) is an issue with Creed, apparently. Still haven't been exposed to it, but I'm just waiting for it to blow up in my face.
I have a 2011 batch GIT 4oz bottle and the projection and longevity is nothing like that of my Aventus 2011 batch 4oz bottle. Aventus rocks whereas GIT has had its days. MI is a much better alternative to GIT I think.
Maybe it's me but GIT just isn't cutting the mustard for me.
I would like to try Aventus but really I'm not even comfortable payin 5.99 for a 1ml sample from the perfumed court. That's barely enough to sample.
They should take a note from Bond no.9 and at least offer samples that you can order via phone......I'm sure Bond no.9 will have a "Aventus" like fragrance within the following year or two with a consistent pineapple note. Lol.
Bond is my niche house.
Never had an issue with GIT. Aventus I don't care for, it smelled wonderful for about 30 minutes then my wife started asking me why she smelled gasoline. Sure enough I smelled my arm and it must just not mix with my skin. I smelled like gas for about 5 hours, it wouldn't scrub off lol. So I would definitely say Aventus is probably a stronger scent in general, but I do get pretty good sillage an longetivity from GIT. It is one of my most complimented frags.
I would be quite surprised if Green Irish Tweed did not have robust projection and longevity. Perhaps, something did affect the fragrance during decanting, unintentionally or otherwise.
And, by the way:
Out of curiosity, how much of GIT do you guys spray on?
Thanks, Renato. That explains it for me... perhaps I ought to spray a bit more. I think I was doing around 4 sprays.
