After a long, long search and 15 different scent samples/fillings that I had sent for, it has now become GIT. My new scent and I am very happy. I've been using perfumes for over 20 years now, and I like to keep on using something new. Lastly, I had the classic Fahrenheit for a long time, but this was clearly too violent/petroleum-like for my Holden, so I was looking for something new. And luckily (or bad luck for me) there is parfumo.de. Therefore now also my first comment to a smell here, I find the side super!
What worlds there were! Before, I actually only knew the current standards from the orange drugstores or smaller perfume shops, glorious exception: Duel by Annick Goutal. A coincidence purchase, made possible by the beautiful consultation of a nice saleswoman in the Munich Oberpollinger.
But here now: first of all the rankings thinned, forum contributions read. Niche perfumes? I didn't know anything else. So I ordered some rehearsals, among others Itasca, some scents from Olfactive Studio, Aventus and GIT. Many things were discarded immediately (Olfactive Studio, I didn't like any of them), others tested longer on the skin and of course (important!) let the woman sniff them. Terre d´Hermes, Aventus and GIT were on the shortlist for me, GIT has become so, even though I have long hesitated whether the price...
What struck me right away was the clear proximity to Cool Water. I don't think you can deny them either, the similarity is simply too obvious, even if they develop in various ways afterwards. In my humble, inconsequential opinion, Green Irish Tweed is a fragrance that can always be worn, even if it is more suitable for the warmer seasons. Starts relatively fresh and botanical (I deliberately avoid the term "green"), also maritime associations come up. I hardly find him citric. Unobtrusive, but present, striking, but not pungent. The initial freshness slowly gives way to a warmer powderiness, also somewhat flowery, but never even rudimentarily sweet or pompous. The only thing I could criticize is that GIT loses external impact relatively quickly, the Sillage is certainly not as strong as e.g. Terre d´Hermes. On the skin, the scent is very noticeable for about 6 hours, after which it slowly decreases. But it's also perfectly all right, GIT wants to be more discreet, I think. I am always happy when I perceive it and I am sure that it will give pleasure to its wearer even after prolonged use.
As I said, the price is already borderline (I paid 160€ for 100ml), you also pay a lot for the name Creed, but you get something nice for it. The price difference for CW is only so much: of course it is much cheaper and the similarity is there. But GIT is then simply finer, more unobtrusive and the awareness of not wearing the scent of everyday life also makes a difference. Maybe a little olfactory placebo effect, but I'm glad I bought it. I'm curious to see how long he will accompany me as a signature
