Bearskin or Porno Beams ?
Creed, a brand that was pushed in recent years in immeasurable heights. Again and again, just Aventus was chosen as one of the supposed best fragrances ever and accordingly is discussed emotionally and intensively about the qualities, the different batches and other things of the brand. Since the masses were mobilized over all possible channels for the smells, I had decided for me personally to make a bow around the whole topic. Just to save me possible discussions in personal displeasure.
More than a year ago I had once tested the Virgin Island Water with a sample order for fun. In retrospect, no fragrance that has blown me off the stool and rather lives on its propaganda. A few months ago, however, Green Irish Tweed joined my sample list, as I wanted to get an idea of the fresh, herbaceous nature that had appealed to me in a weak moment. I did not expect much in advance, because I have a certain negative basic attitude towards the brand, which had not influenced me then but further during testing.

That the fragrance would have convinced me even with the negative basic attitude, however, would have been clear to me later. Because Green Irish Tweed holds much ready, more than I would have trusted him. On the one hand, I feel that positive, because the fragrance knew how to please me, on the other hand again more water on the mills of those who believe that Creed is the pinnacle of fragrances.

So what convinces me about him ? On the one hand, I would like to award the fragrance extremely good all-rounder skills. Wearable in very many situations and also relatively temperature-independent in its development, if I exclude deep-winter temperatures times. In addition, it is not a perfume, which disturbs anyone with corners and edges or sends into the oxygen tent. A both uncomplicated, as well as comfortable contemporary, which certainly finds high appeal among fans of modern classics.
This comes from the very intense-green combination of herbaceous-fresh notes such as peppermint, verbena and lemon and the somewhat opposing woody notes and amber. Where the fresher notes are weighted a bit higher and give the fragrance its character. In fact, the word herbaceous describes it well, considering how grassy it seems. If you have the fragrance in the nose, you also recognize quite quickly that the origin has many years on the hump. You can virtually look at the spray head, as he tries to squeeze out the word "classic", although he also wants to take traces of somewhat more modern fragrances in itself.
Although it is a fragrance from another time, when men still fought about who probably has the bushier chest and the larger porno bar, so it is in an amazing way today all the more wearable, which surprised me myself. Because the cool-metallic freshness which wets the skin works for me more current than ever.

Despite that I mentioned, the fragrance is an all-rounder, so I would not necessarily hear him every day. This may be due to my personal preferences, since I am generally a little more sensitive since the pandemic and HomeOffice and me fragrances are also quickly tired of times. However, I have occasionally found myself strolling past my collection and popping the spray head up my nose once in a while. The fascination with this fragrance has certainly gotten to me. Thank you for this wonderfully refreshing fragrance Creed. The thoughts of a large bottle buzz at least in my head.
But I will stay strong and give Aventus a wide berth, as the choice or investment of time to find the right bottle seems too large and burdensome.

First impressions are deceptive.
So after I have checked the perfume on Parfumo with every new purchase for quite some time now and had spent a lot of time here, I took the time today to register here and browse a little bit in the souk :).
When I was sitting on my balcony tonight in slightly humid weather and had nothing to do, I thought I could write a comment. I know that the standards and the level of comments here is usually very high, so please leave your opinion and tips as an answer!
But which perfume should it be? After a short consideration my opinion fell on Green Irish Tweet, because I already had in mind, in which direction the comment should go.
I especially like to apply new perfumes in the evening to test them. One is undisturbed and can enjoy the fragrance in a relaxed way or, in case of less good scents, at least let it work on you.
And a few weeks ago I was sitting on my balcony in the evening, with very good weather for the time of year, and decided to try GIT from Creed again, although my first impression was anything but good.
Because when I first applied GIT to myself, I directly had the association in my head with my grandfather's old grey cardigan. I can't describe exactly what that was, but I was very disappointed at first. Was I perhaps too young for this scent after all? Where was the promised freshness? The first time I noticed it on a friend, I liked it so much that I ordered it directly...
When I sprayed it again the next evening, this image was again in my mind, although not quite as strong. Sad about my probably most expensive mistake, I put it in my shelf in the back and didn't pay attention to it anymore.
But I had decided, I don't know why exactly, to give him another chance after a break of about 2 weeks. And what can I say, the break has probably done him and me really good. Shortly after spraying on, I immediately noticed the freshness that I had missed the first two times. In front of my inner eye I had, thank God, no more outdated cardigan, but a high cliff in Ireland (probably because of the name) where the waves break and a pleasant sea breeze slowly moves the grass back and forth. Exactly the scent I liked so much the first time. There is something fresh and sea-like about it, but quite different than you might think. For me it is beautiful and perfectly rounded, but also wild and indomitable. The waves and the sea, even the rocky coastline and the grass harmonize perfectly and can all be smelled clearly with every breath.
But only the first hour. Then he withdraws a little. But only to be back again immediately in case of smaller gusts of wind or movements and to give you self-confidence and strength.
This scent has completely convinced me and I am very happy to have given it a third chance. Meanwhile I like to wear it in the office, you don't have to worry about its durability. Also the silage is not aggressively disturbing, but rather selective and very pleasant.
To cut a long story short: give this fragrance some time and don't let the first impression blind you, then it will meet all your expectations.
So that was my first comment here. I hope it was written reasonably legible. As already said, I am grateful for any feedback and suggestions for improvement!

A bit old... or not?
GIT was the first full bottle of Creed's house that strayed to me. I was freshly 18 and was strolling through the perfume department of a Düsseldorf department store when I first stumbled upon it. Aventus was already familiar to me, but the all-black bottle looked a bit "cooler" to me (Teenie Thoughts).
I asked the employee for a test strip, who first recommended "But to try the Aventus", which would be younger and more suitable for me.
Stubborn as I was, I refused the offer and she gave me the GIT test strip.

The first time I had the scent in my nose I said to my friend, "Wow look, it smells like freshly cut grass", whereupon he turned up his nose and said that he smelled like his grandfather's aftershave. - Great start
I was definitely captivated by the scent from that moment on, the fresh aquatic note in combination with the smell of the freshly mown meadow.
- now my newly 18 years old self looked at the price "Boah 225€? - that's a lot of money".
Luckily the nice saleswoman, who wanted to sell me Aventus before, was still standing nearby and pointed out to me that this was the last day when there was 25% on fragrances - 3 guesses which fragrance found its way to my home that day.

Now I am already for nearly 2 years in the possession over this sweetheart and I did not regret it yet one second. I have often received comments a la "Oh I think my grandpa wears the same scent", but I like it incredibly well.

The fragrance opens up a little minty for me, but after a short time it changes into a compote of freshly mown meadow and salty sea air. From the smoky fresh drydown I can also perceive something earthy and woody - probably cedar wood. But I don't want to talk much more about the scents, because there are thousands of members here who can do that better than me and must laugh about this description - look me up, I'm still learning ;)

In terms of durability, it has no problems at all on my skin to remain well perceptible for a whole day in the office or at university (8h ca). With 5-6 sprayers I regularly get compliments when the other person stands 1-2 meters away from me. - BTW it is a 17 batch for the batch fanatics

All in all, Creed GIT was my first niche fragrance and will forever have a special place in my collection!

Beautiful fresh green Immergeher
I've wanted to test this Creed for a long time. A few weeks ago a small ordered bottling arrived. In the fragrance community, a fragrance with a huge fan base and one of Creed's bestsellers alongside Aventus and Virgin Island Water. If you follow my comments, you know I'm not the biggest Creed fan. With VIW I own one from this house, but a brand for me with a bad price-performance ratio. If one finds good offers, one can strike however, since most are very pleasing and well wearable in the everyday life.

I was very curious about this one. Also because Cool water is a well-known fragrance twin and the fragrance has a huge fanbase and also everywhere else well gets away. I can anticipate: Rightly so. A great fragrance from 1985 with the typical 80s charm a la Cool Water.
The fragrance rightly has the fragrance twin Cool Water here. One of the greatest fragrance classics, which unfortunately is now a little exhausted but still enjoys classic status. With Green Irish Tweed you have a great alternative that goes in this direction but also has many facets of its own. The DNA is similar, Cool Water is more aquatic, GIT is clearly greener as the name suggests. And a nice herbaceous fresh spice. Very stylish, noble and serious. He is also very gentle and never too offensive, which is an advantage in many cases. It is well perceptible, but in a very gentle and pleasant way. It is also very maritime with a beautiful green note. Fitting to the Irish coast, where one owns a lot of green areas. This flair comes across well through this fragrance. Supplemented with some soft nuances. Very crowdpleasing.
Qualitatively I like it much better than many creeds, also because the performance on the whole is convincing for a fresher fragrance. From the house there are also very short-lived scents. Thumbs up. Some hours he holds out with good to decent Sillage.
In the everyday life very well applicable, particularly starting from approx. 30 years this smell comes well to the Geltung. But it can also be described as timeless, since he accompanies pleasantly despite his 85s. It's never too penetrating and annoying and you won't find any enemies in this scent DNA.

A fragrance that has its price. No money thrown out for me, though. Especially with special offers you can buy a serious daily fragrance. A scent that I like to smell, even if the gang hasn't jumped over a big spark.

After me only the Atlantic Ocean
It's a thing with Green Irish Tweed; the scent takes time. I was a bit old-fashioned at first, but something always attracted me. Was it the connection to my Irish patron saint, the appreciation of somewhat older scents? I don't know.
At first I thought to myself, what does this name mean? Green Irish Tweed? But with time and wearing it, I noticed that the name is well chosen, that Ireland with its rough sea and the unrestrained Atlantic Ocean and the freedom that comes with it is a successful name sponsor.
Green Irish Tweed is refreshing but it does not have Mediterranean freshness. We are not at the beach, no cocktails with umbrellas are served. We are in Ireland, the sea is rougher, the climate milder, yet the sun shines and sparkles on the sea surface. The cool and salty sea breeze caresses the nose and it is a different sea breeze than in Mediterranean countries. The air is a little cooler, grassy, maybe it comes from the surrounding land.
This is well made in GIT, which makes it look old-fashioned, but at the same time lifts GIT out of the fragrances for warmer seasons, because at night on the cliffs by the sea, with a Guiness in your hand, looking into the dark distance and listening to the wind, which makes your hair boil, that's where GIT is. It lasts long, longer than you might think because of its below average sillage and on warm days this sometimes gives it the advantage over Mediterranean scents.
Because sometimes, when a gust of wind comes and invites you to dream, it draws a path out of your home garden. This is sometimes surprising especially when the scent disappears and then reappears after 5-6 hours.

I won't hide it: all this also means greenish-maritime. It does not mean crystal clear, warm blue sea. It means the splashing of the spray on the cliffs by the sea with a breeze and yes, with the green tweed around the shoulders

Grass clippings. A timeless fragrance in the same sense that mowing your yard is timeless.

Fresh, green and aquatic. In the opening, it's citrusy with lemon verbena, floral with violet and iris. Slightly salty from the ambergris.
