    Default Re: If you had to pick Creed GIT vs MI? Why?

    I would go with GIT between the two (although I prefer Bond's Chez Bond over GIT). But as far as Creed, I know it's not a choice, but give me Aventus over GIT or MI any day.

    Cool Re: If you had to pick Creed GIT vs MI? Why?

    Why indeed?

    Because I'd be a newbie who had never smelled Sélection Verte or Cyprès-Musc, Bois du Portugal or Epicea instead of GIT (and good luck finding SV on eBay--or from a seller here.)

    For that matter, though none of the following smell like MI, I doubt I'd ever have smelled other Creeds like Royal English Leather, Acier Aluminium, "Vintage" Tabarome--or even the readily available Himalaya or Erolfa.

    (Or even Aventus??)

    this is meant as encouragement to explore the not so well advertised scents for men from the house of Creed, not condemnation in buying two of their pop frags which have been advertised like crazy and discussed on threads like these many times before.

    May I humbly suggest you look up the reviews on the "rare ones" I've mentioned and, if you don't live in a large metropolitan area, order a tester from somewhere, should any of the reviews sound intriguing


    -- And of course, decide for yourself.

    Yes, I agree. GIT is a lot more versatile and can be worn all year.

    Green Irish Tweed. Smells better and is more versatile than Millesime Imperial (to me). Also, it actually lasts more than a few hours.

    GIT, I own and enjoy both immensely. But GIT is a fragrance for all seasons, and trumps Mi in the longevity department. So if you have to choose, go GIT.

    Tough. IMO MI has more of a wow factor and should get more complements. GIT is more masculine imo.

    I choose GIT, MI has more WOW factor, but you need to worry about 'Creed Notorious Batch Variation' and its longvity is tragic compare to GIT.

    Green Irish Tweed - a classic, smells like confidence, more versatile, any season, takes you from the gym to the office to a night out, better for dress up occasions.

    MI. Both smell good, but MI is quite magical in its composition. Just the right balance of melon and salt, wears nice and transparently, and very refreshing in the summer. The drydown of GIT is great too, and it is a more versatile scent, but I just don't feel the need to own a whole bottle.

    I'd pick MI because it has a sunny day optimism about it. But, really, you can't go wrong either way. If you truly can't decide (and, hey, we all know that feeling) try wearing a spray of MI on one arm and GIT on the other. Then, all you have to do is follow your nose. It'll know.

    For me, the answer is MI hands-down. Couldn't use GIT all the time, especially in the summer. MI has a feel-good vibe to it and the opening fruit (at least in my batch) is out of this world.

    I understand though that the two dry-down to a similar sandalwood-ambergris base, so I can see why this comparison is being made.

    A lot of good posts in this thread.

    Both of these smell great and are pleasant to others around you.

    GIT is more versatile and can be worn anytime of the year to Work, Church, Dinner, or while driving an M1 Abrams tank. GIT also has much better longevity.

    MI smells amazing, but is more casual and feminine smelling to me. MI also seems to project like crazy for about an hour and then falls off the cliff. You will need to carry a small atomizer to reapply throughout the day. MI is awesome in spring or summer.

    MI gets more use in my house, because my wife wears it as well. I really like GIT but wish it projected more and lasted longer for the price.

    GIT by a fair margin. I much prefer it, when compared to MI. "GIT" is, frankly, my favorite scent !!

    GIT. I prefer the smell, and it's more versatile in both terms of season and occasion. MI is solidly summer. GIT leans spring, but can be worn really any season. Can you imagine wearing MI to even a semi-formal affair? No. GIT can easily be worn with a suit.

    Green Irish Tweed is the superior scent. Whilst I do like MI, it feels like a "summer flanker" to GIT (albeit one which is considerably lighter, almost watered down).
    It's longevity/projection are both rather fleeting too, which goes against it. Those top notes are excellent though (whilst they last).

    MI because it smells better, lasts longer, is the more creative scent, and has not been equaled.

    I'd go GIT because it is so much more versatile. If you live in a really warm climate year-round I'd go with MI, but assuming an average climate, GIT would be the better pick.
