    There is something I like in Irish Spring soap but can’t quite put my finger on it

    If you’re asking for a cologne that smells like Irish spring, then Mugler Cologne is exactly what you’re looking for.

    Yes, indeed.

    Seconding both Mugler Cologne and Creed OV among the ones already mentioned, also adding Creed GIT (strange as it may seem not so much due to the name, as much as simply a clean freshness of a light, airy style but also reminding of a high quality soap bar in the best way possible)

    Indeed, Mugler Cologne smells and, with its light green color, looks similar to Irish Spring soap. But Alfred Sung's Sung Homme, at the top, is an even closer match to Irish Spring. The drydown, however, is another story.

    I'd add Patrick by Fragrances of Ireland.

    While it doesn't smell just like Irish Spring, it's a great fragrance to layer on your skin after having showered using Irish Spring. I've tried it, and I think it brings great freshness while adding some nice nuances to the clean smelling Irish Spring soap.

    Cannot disagree with GIT either.

    The closest I’ve smelled to Irish Spring soap, hands down.

    I'm surprised no one has mentioned John Varvatos Artisan Blu. IMO, it's very similar to Irish Spring, much more so than GIT.

    Patrick of Ireland is dead ringer for Irish Spring.

    I agree that Patrick is the best replica of Irish Spring soap.

    I'm waiting to find a bottle for a little cheaper myself so I can add it to my collection.

    Really is a great scent and also a real bargain

    You would obviously need to be a perfumer to know what it's constituents are made of, perhaps some vetiver along with a myriad of synthetics of oak-moss, watery notes, green notes and musk. It's a pretty linear scent so I doubt there's too much involved in terms of tiers.

    It's around $40 shipped on Ebay right now, but I remember seeing it for $25 shipped a while ago, so I am waiting.

    Edit.. ehh forget it, @$38, I pulled the trigger on their last bottle left. Finally knocking this off one off the wishlist.

    Agree with above and will add

    I Profumi di Firenze Vetiver di Giava

    Closest to Irish Spring I’ve tried. And I own the frags above.

    I agree. It smells like Irish Spring on steroids. I don't care much for it but if that's a smell you like, one shot of this should last you all day.

    It's been years since I've smelled Irish Spring, so I apparently have a warped remembrance of how it smells. I didn't equate it to Mugler Cologne, that's for sure...

    So, let me ask, which soap does Cologne by Etat Libre d'Orange smell like? I swear it reminds me of a classic soap...

    Yet another strong recommendation for Patrick by Fragrances of Ireland. To me, it smelled exactly like Irish Spring.

    Kind of. ELdO Cologne smells more like Neroli Portofino - not exactly the same, but more of that bergamot, orange blossom, with a blood orange twist (barely there). Neroli Portofino is just stronger on neroli, aka: orange blossom. I like this genre and the morern take on classic colognes, but (to me) these are less soapy than, say, many of the Prada fragrances that all smell like very good hand soap.

    Patrick is what you want! I have ALL of the others mentioned and mostly FB’s, and while all are similar....Patrick IS Irish Spring soap!

    Good decision! It's a great fragrance at a great price...
