The fragrance is rich, fresh, sporty and unforgettable. I have smelled Cool Water before this, and yes it has similarities to GIT, but a lot more abrasive and synthetic.Green Irish Tweed opens with top notes of iris and lemon verbena. The base notes are ambergris and Mysore sandalwood. The nose behind this fragrance is Olivier Creed Sixth Generation. So, if you like the smell, go for GIT, if you're willing to pay that high price tag.It was my first niche purchase and the one I always come back to.Some settings are more appropriate than others, but there really isn’t ever a bad time to wear GIT.So after hearing so much hype on GIT, I tried it on skin for the first time yesterday. I just have to say that people have been praising Creed so much, even though none of their fragrances feel special.
One of the signature scents of the house of Creed, this "walk through the Irish countrywide" is a favorite of many celebrities. To me it is very outdated and would fit someone at least over the age of 30.Longevity is good for a fougere at about 8 hours overall.Strong initial projection, gradually falling away after a couple of hours until it becomes a skin scent at the 5 hour mark. Question is, would I shell out in excess of £200 for a bottle? Nicely crafted though GIT is, there are other fragrances out there that do a very similar job at a fraction of the price (the inevitable comparison with Cool Water comes to mind). This fragrance is nice green, aromatic and a bit classy and lasts about 6 hours on me.I will wear it to work tomorrow and see what happens!But overall I am Impressed and can definitely tell this is made with good quality materials. I have to give a few words, because this is my favorite fragrance.
