Why you should definitely not wear this fragrance on New Year's Eve!
Caution: Only read on if you can handle irony!

You should definitely not wear this fragrance on New Year's Eve because it doesn't cost much and what's cheap can't be worth anything after all, so the stuff certainly won't impress your friends! What's more, it doesn't go with your new SUV and that would be the least you could do!

You should definitely not wear this fragrance on New Year's Eve because the bottle looks so terribly cheap - not even a little retro - and your girlfriend will definitely not like it: It doesn't go with her new Gucci fumble and if you put it in her bathroom, she'll kick you out before the New Year's Eve party in the worst case scenario.

You should definitely not wear this fragrance on New Year's Eve because it doesn't smell of green apple, synthetic oud and saffron and you'll immediately attract the attention of your new friends: that's no way to maintain your corporate identity in a luxury club!
You should definitely not wear this fragrance on New Year's Eve because it lasts less than 6 hours and you would have to use up a whole bottle to keep up with your friends' latest scents. After midnight at the latest, you will smell like NOTHING.

You should definitely not wear this fragrance on New Year's Eve, because the sillage would only be noticed by your neighbors, but you want to scent the whole club. By now at the latest, the decision has been made anyway.

You CAN wear this fragrance if you want to give preference to an old classic, have already worn Pour Un Homme de Caron (1934) Eau de Toilette, Pour Monsieur Eau de Toilette, Eau Sauvage Eau de Toilette and similar inconspicuous old fragrances in recent years and no longer know what else would come into question. Maybe that wouldn't even be a bad choice: creaky, spicy and woody fougère fragrances are supposed to be back in fashion soon - and maybe you'll be the first to notice this new trend and can post it on Instagram.

I wish all classic fans, niche fragrance wearers, mainstream lovers and drugstore connoisseurs as well as all the other lovely people on Parfumo a wonderful Old Year's Eve and a happy and healthy 2024!

Like the landscapes of Ireland...
Green meadows, steep cliffs, white sheep, charismatic pubs, cheerful redheads
Human... These are probably the typical associations you have when you think of the island state Ireland...

A proud country with a long history, beautiful nature, highly interesting (own) language... A country, which is called "The green island" among other things... And green like the country is also this fragrance; both the bottle and its character...

And I am very happy to have discovered him, so that I now have to write a comment, although I already wrote a short statement a few days ago...
[...]

When I regularly run my little errands in my drugstore of trust (named after a famous football player, or the most common surname in the German-speaking world), I always stroll comfortably to the shelves with all the enchanting flacons... A special moment of well-being, which we all know, appreciate and love here... Just like a few days ago...

This time I went first of all to the corner with the very cheap treasures. Those which, unfortunately, receive far too little attention. There my gaze immediately caught a small green bottle...
"Sir Irish Moss", I saw reading on the plainly held bottle and the packaging and immediately had certain pictures in mind: "Well, it will probably smell as it looks", I said to myself and sprayed my wrist...

"Oh wow, how good is he?!" I marveled at this greenhorn. A super aromatic, fresh spicy start shot up my nose. A start of citric bergamot, intense coriander and spicy rosemary. I liked this one so much that I knew immediately that I would buy it. And when I saw the price (9,99€ for 50ml), I first thought of a joke. I asked the extremely friendly saleswoman in disbelief and asked for a 100ml bottle, but they only had it in 50ml, which I found half as tragic. Because it is well known that you need more time for larger quantities before you have used them up (or until you get them empty at all...).

But if you now think the scent is a so-called "head note catcher" (even if I let myself be influenced by it), then you're wrong. Because right after this great start, the first green and woody chords resonate alongside the spicy notes (carnation is also added), making the fragrance a powerful and - in my eyes - naturally fresh little jewel.
In the middle, cedar wood is joined by lavender. Together with rosemary, lavender forms a herbaceous and herbaceous unit, giving the fragrance a beautiful, woodsy-floral touch. This is also where it gets its so-called "lavender". Fougère-Vibe'.
Moss, as the name of the fragrance implies, rounds off the whole thing in a nice earthy-mossy way. Fortunately, I personally don't notice anything about patchouli and tonka bean, because they would only unnecessarily interfere with the core character of this fragrance. This way it keeps its green-aromatic main direction
At the beginning I could imagine that he comes across as a little too harsh and intense for some, but towards the base he becomes altogether more supple.

The durability is with 5h (on my skin) I think for such a ridiculously cheap fragrance quite considerable and also sufficient. In the first hour it already fills the room as I find it, before it quickly retires and is still perceived very closely.

In my opinion, it probably fits best into the intermediate seasons, i.e. spring or autumn. For the summer it would be a bit too harsh and spicy for me, but in winter you could wear it without any problems.
As far as events are concerned, I would say it always works, but preferably during the day.

Conclusion:
I have now worn it all the days and find it so great that I still can't stop being amazed. As I write this comment, I'm sniffing the spray head again and again... My original rating of 8.5 I have now raised to 9, because I like him so much and he deserves this - in my eyes - in all respects.

Mockers might say or think in a derogatory way: "No, that's a drugstore water, I'm not testing it..."
Well, if the bottle were to say MFK, PdM, Chanel or similar, then it would definitely get a lot more attention. We all know the "game"...

Anyway, I am just glad to have discovered and found him, because I was looking for a greenling of this direction for a longer time anyway...

Authentic, down-to-earth and self-contained is this Sir, a very natural smelling, aromatic, woody and spicy "green scent", which cuts a great figure on my shelf next to my Amouage and the two Creeds.
So great, that he takes out a beer, if necessary, and drinks it under the table like a real Irishman, if he wants to. But he doesn't need this, because a SIR has to prove something to himself and nobody else...

Oh yes, one more thing: This "drugstore water" goes down quite well with the opposite sex, which I attribute to the feedback I received in the few days... I mention this for once, because there are quite a few trollish and testosterone-controlled sexual comrades cavorting around here, who are especially mischievous in the ticker, always philosophizing about the Aventus and Laytons of this earth and who are especially interested in the "Läjdis-Rijäktschens", which are so important for survival... Here you go...

Now then, I wanted to mention this just once...

[...]

Thanks to all who have read along!

Sports Lesson and 'Smoke on the Water'
The school bell had already rung for the second time while Jonas was still on his way to the gym. Hurry up now, man. The full gym bag banged against his legs with every step and didn't make walking any easier. If he was late, he'd get another scolding from Schmidt, and that would be the second one this week. He'd already gotten one in bio. Jonas hates bio.
But he'll just make it. Today is gymnastics on the parallel bars. Well, that's okay. With his good coordination and suppleness no problem for him. Jonas was already thinking about Leonie. Guitar lesson at 4 pm, like every Wednesday. Today he was finally going to get it. Smoke on the Water. Last week the chords didn't fit yet and Leonie said in her always friendly way: "Oh, that doesn't matter. It's probably too early for you". Ha, my ass. Leonie, the daughter of good acquaintances of his parents, who had only been teaching him for a short time. Dad had given him his Old Fender for his 12th birthday and Jonas was as proud as punch. "But you have to start practicing now. Otherwise it won't work," Dad said.
Leonie, 5 years older than him. With her long blonde hair and water blue eyes. And that soft voice. And she always smells so good. A delicate, unobtrusive scent. A bit like the powder Mum uses sometimes.
Anyway, he couldn't let last week's setback stand. All the previous weekend he'd been practicing, even his parents were wondering. And today he would bring it. For sure. Just a quick trip home and a quick repetition of the holds. Leonie would make eyes!
After the sports lesson everything has to go fast. Showering must be cancelled this time, the time is otherwise too short. While most of his classmates hop under the showers, he nestles a small vial out of his backpack. 'Sir Irish Moss' he reads on the label. Mum had pulled a basket of old perfume samples and mini vials from a back cupboard corner the other day and sorted some out. "Here, this is something for boys, why don't you try it?" she'd said to him, handing him 2 mini bottles, this one and another whose name he hadn't even bothered to remember. He had accepted them indifferently for her sake, what was he supposed to do with the stuff.
But he had still packed this little bottle into his small backpack bag in the morning. It was Leonie day after all, maybe it could still be used.
Impatiently, he now tears off the small cap. He smells briefly at the opening. Hm... not bad, somehow fresh. Now what? How do you get the liquid out of it? The only way is to pour it. With awkward movements Jonas spills the scent on his shirt and on his neck up to his shoulders. Immediately, an alcoholic plume spreads, closely followed by the herbaceous, green and tart top note. Ow, all of them already. The cloud expands. And, of course, does not go undetected in the cramped locker room. Paul, the class clown, spotted it first, of course. "Huh," what's that smell... oohh, his eyes round, "the Jonas takes perfume-üm, the Jonas takes perfume-üm. The Jonas has what vo-hor, the Jonas has what vo-hor." He sounds off in a shrill voice, jumping around the locker room like a monkey. "Ey, Mr. Jones, you smell correct like my old man," comes from Mustafa, who is a little older than the others and even has his voice breaking.

Meanwhile, the EdT has thickened. The initial fresh, herbaceous notes are joined by warmer ones that also contribute a touch of sweetness. A little rose geranium and the warming carnation gently cushion the scent and wrapped in a softly spicy-fresh cloud, Jonas steps out onto the street. It's only a few yards to the bus stop. He steers obliviously towards it while wondering what the scent reminds him of. Ah yes, grandma's campsite... a little way down the meadow runs a small stream. How many times has he played there in the summer when they visited grandma at the campground. The air there always smells so special, too. Of all kinds of green that grows there, partly in the shade of the trees. And of water running over moss-covered stones. Fresh and also a bit earthy, a deep aromatic scent,. I wonder if that's where they get it Or from another stream and then just bottle it? But it's got some of that herbal schnapps in it that Grandma often offers her visitors. Hence the smell of alcohol at first. Yeah, that's kind of how it has to be, Jonas decides.

His excitement has subsided. A relaxed mood slowly brightens his mind. Yeah, that Leonie girl. She's cool - but not that cool, he thinks, straightening his shoulders and raising his chin a little. After all, I'm pretty cool myself. Just then the bus turns the corner and stops. Today everything will go great, he thinks and gets on

Animal classic from the 70s
The first time I had a meeting with Irish Moss was in the 80s as a flacon in my father's bathroom cabinet. Immense disgust and at the same time fascination overwhelm my senses, whenever I get wrapped up again in its billowing, pulsating scent cloud. Because every now and then you want to stink like a musk ox in the rut - and I don't even mean that in a derogatory way! Because then - but only then (!) is it possible for me to use Irish Moss. Because anyone who underestimates its brutal, animalistic rot and overripeness is playing a dangerous game at the limit of odour nuisance. One must be aware of this, if it is applied on the appropriate occasion and with an appropriate goal. Because with this scent man says: "Here I am! Take me or get lost" However, since seduction is a high art, just like the right (ladies) fragrance selection, I recommend the careful and careful handling of the moss! Now and then, however, when applied at the right moment, this scent can unfold its full, almost hypnotic, animal power with the opposite sex. Have fun trying it out!

Grandpa green statement scent
I am immediately transported back to my childhood.... when the bright green bottle looks down at me from the top of the shelf in grandpa's bathroom.... "Irish Moss" I read there. That already sounds very substantial. Masculine, spicy and just mossy. Like walking through the woods on a rainy day. The woods soaked by the rain, the ethereally fragrant conifers and pine cones. Wonderfully woodsy.
My grandpa was not a lumberjack type, but his character was definitely stern and rugged, with a wonderful heart and much love for his neighbors. This is also reflected in the slight sweetness of Irish moss. Maybe that's why Grandpa liked the scent so much?
All in all, it is a wonderful perfume from a beautiful old time. I can purchase the fragrance at any time, thank goodness. This classic must not be discontinued. Because he brings me on my fragrance journey my grandpa every time a piece back to me.
