    Seriously OP, have you ever smelled a bar of Irish Spring soap? There is simply no other comparison than that. Patrick smells just like it, it dries down the same, it's very linear.

    I hope this answer satisfies you. If you don't like Irish Spring, steer clear of Patrick!

    It smells great and can be had for a small amount of cash. It punches way above it's weight, so to speak. It's clean, green and fresh with a lovely soapiness and it evokes in the imagination, meadows and green fields. All in all very nice, I mean who does not like a quality bargain!

    It reminds me of a lot of different scents having a hint of each. It has the green feel of Paco Rabanne Pour Homme, the slight soapiness of Irish Spring Soap, a dash of citrus from Original Vetiver and the lemon zest of Original Lacoste scent.

    He said he doesn’t know of Irish Spring soap.

    OP......it is a nice clean scent that is good for summer!

    $40 for a 100ml, fast shipping directly from them in Ireland (€8.00 to Italy). A no-brainer, really.

    I don't personally think Patrick is good for summer - it's more of a spring or autumn scent. But others have said it's a fresh, soapy, green scent.

    Just be sure to go easy on the sprays - too much and it gets all messy.

    How does it compare to Sung Homme? On my 4th day of that one now and the Irish Spring element is very predominant and obvious. Is Patrick similar to Sung Homme?

    Better, in my opinion.

    Sung Homme is quite harsh to my nose, even with all the soapiness. But you can find it for $10 nowadays. Perhaps they used better ingredients originally. Patrick is clean, easy and fresh. And as close to Irish Spring as the bar itself.

    My bottle smoothed out in the couple of days I had it. The first time I sprayed it I got a very lucid and literal urinal cake accord (the same one that everyone says smells like/copied Kouros, well it's here and you can't miss it). Now a few days later that accord is muted and it smells much more like Irish Spring and it's very smooth. I'm wondering what is causing that particular "urinal soap" accord (note: it's not a "pissy" or actual "urine" smell at all, but the soap smell of the puck.) Perhaps a mixture of cinnamon, dihydromyrcenol and aldehydes?

    Good fragrance,good value.There is one thing I disagree with a little.It does not remind me that much of Irish Spring.Patrick is green and a little bit earthy( if that is the right term). Irish Spring is green and fresh.All in all though a very nice fragrance and Fragrances of Ireland should consider making more mens and unisex fragrances.

    I agree with that.1-2 sprays and it is a nice green type of scent,when you go higher with the sprays the scent changes and also gets less green.

    It's hard for me to understand how anyone wouldn't really like Patrick. This something I could wear from early spring through mid autumn before the leaves change color. I'm a heavy sprayer and usually go with 6 to 7 sprays on arms, neck and chest. I love it and my GF loves it and that's all I'm concerned with. If you like green fragrances Patrick should be in your collection.

    This is a brighter and greener Paco Rabanne Pour Homme with less musk. Much sharper.

    I tend to agree. When I first wore it, I thought it was just soapy clean, but subsequently I picked up the moss, the greenness, and yes, a bit of earthiness. I still consider it a soapy fragrance, but it's more complicated than that.

    Ha! Yes. This!

    It's affordable, it's a pleasing/pleasant clean refreshing scent and I even like wearing it! Actually I enjoy most of the other frags in this line as well: Inis and Innisfree. We have a store in town, actually a Scottish store, that sells this...yes yes I know, Irish perfume in a Scottish store.... I really ought to buy a bottle of this instead of spraying myself when I visit the store...

    As for QVC, they were selling IT Cosmetics and now that brand is ALL over the place now. It's like a kickstarter for many brands. Even the George Forman grill and the Air Fryer were QVC regulars before they hit mainstream. I get that some things are cringeworthy, but there are hidden gems!
