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!

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!

i love it, I hate it
This is probably one of the most polarizing fragrances ever. And there are definitely days when I couldn't get enough of the scent, but the rest of the days I'm happy when I don't have to smell it.
This is mainly due to the two extremes that this fragrance unites, because on the one hand it is unmistakably masculine and spicy, and on the other it has a very sweet component that contradicts it. This is also what earns him the name "Old Man's Fragrance".
The long and large musk cloud left behind is also unmistakable. So you should be careful to put on this fragrance for the office.
But if you want to try something extravagant, if you're not afraid of being considered old-fashioned, if you don't care what other people think about you, then you should definitely go to Sir.

The first scent I can remember
Today I registered in the forum and decided to comment on the Irisch Moos.
As the title suggests, it is a fragrance that I have known for a long time. That's because my father used to apply Sir Irish Moss After Shave after shaving. At that time I was about five, maybe six years old. Anyway, I really liked the smell and I always wanted to wear it after he shaved.
About nine or ten years later, when I started to remove my facial hair (it just doesn't look good once you have a few whiskers on your upper lip), there was of course only aftershave lotion for me. Further I still used it with pleasure, only I wanted something "stronger" sometime, the after shave did not last long. The consequence was of course the EdT from Irisch Moos.

I find the bottle beautiful, this green substance, so appropriate to its name, enveloped in a square glass. I like the outer packaging as well, it attracts the eye. All right, the plastic cap on the atomizer looks a little bit failed, it just doesn't fit the proportions.

The fragrance itself is spicy, as far as I can tell, clearly mossy but also fresh in a certain way. Not only at the beginning, when one experiences the citric note, but also later on down to the base. I can't really smell any other fragrance components, I don't have a nose to differentiate them. So all in all, somehow mossy, smells like forest, also a freshness and of course just "old". But what I find so good about it.

Durability is fine, Sillage could be a little better. But for the price, it's all right.

There is no particular reason for wearing the Irish Moss'. For a date rather less, but for a visit in the local pub I find it quite common. In my opinion, there is no target group determined by age in general. But many fragrances tend to have a certain age, which is due to the perception. This one is probably not so well rated by very young wearers/test persons.

By the way, the production of Sir Irish Moss shaving soap was unfortunately discontinued, so a few years later I temporarily used the entire care line of Tabac Original. At the moment I have Tabac Shaving Soap (I find shaving foam from the can horrible) and deodorant stick and Irish Moss Shaving Fluid.
