The fragrance is rich, fresh, sporty and unforgettable.
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. The good news is, people are not exhausted of this scent because nobody wears Cool Water anymore.
That's not to say that it's old-fashioned, far from it! I would get another bottle but it's hard to find nowadays. Green Irish Tweed is simple, clean and balanced, finding a rarefied elegance in all aspects.
For me, violet is ever so slightly dominant, but held perfectly in check by a sharp green lemon verbena note.
Green Irish Tweed by Creed is a classic Fougere fragrance.
One of the signature scents of the house of Creed, this "walk through the Irish countrywide" is a favorite of many celebrities.
It's really magical and a little bit clean and soapy, but soapy in a good way. I guess in the dry-down maybe the verbana blending with the iris creates a cinnamon-y effect?
This is a great day time scent for that typical 'in between' Irish weather - neither hot nor cold - and has great longevity on my skin that lasts well into the second day with decent sillage that gets compliments from people who sit down next to me. A very nice, clean, spring time green opening right out the gate.There is also a hint of powdery sharpness from the iris - but again, that is checked by the creamy woodiness of sandalwood.I don't personally pick up the ambergris, but I'd guess it's there simply as an anchor to prevent the instant annihilation of this masterpiece into thin air.Green Irish Tweed may not be suitable for office wear. IMHO this is not like coolwater (which i also like though). I was lucky enough to get a sample vial of this, thanks NAB!! For those that compare this to Tres Nuit, which I myself do, I would say that the difference is that it's a bit more GREEN than Tre Nuit's opening.Only after i got a decant of git i saw the dry down of git is very natural and not synthetic like tres nuit . Coolwater is a more blue, aquatic, synthetic smelling fragrance, wheras GIT smells way more complex, green, and classy with that unmistakable Creed signature ambergris dry down. In my opinion there is just something superior with Green Irish Tweed, likely due to the better quality ingredients, but they are nearly identical IMO.
