If you like Green Irish Tweed, you like Creed. The DNA is strong in that fragrance. If you're looking for another fragrance with that DNA, it'll be challenging to find it outside Creed's house.So...if I love Creed GIT...what will I like?
I agree with this sentiment. I don’t get along with Creed’s “DNA”, but I do love a good violet note. Try some more Creeds, but also get your nose on some violet-forward fragrances. Some in a vaguely GIT-ish style that I enjoy:If you like Green Irish Tweed, you like Creed. The DNA is strong in that fragrance. If you're looking for another fragrance with that DNA, it'll be challenging to find it outside Creed's house.
Stay within Creed and you'll find many that are similar. I might suggest starting with Royal Water. Bright, green and clean top, with a musty ambergris base. Or many others throughout the same house.
Never tried it but apparently it has more in common with Dior Sauvage than with the OG CW.While I'm here and there's a few mentions of Cool water. How's the CW Parfum hold up?
Vintage Cool Water was very well done. Not like the modern production. I literally can't find any olfactory differences between Cool Water and GIT the first 6-8 hours. To my nose they smell exactly the same. After that the evolution is completely different and the dry down phase of GIT is absolutely gorgeous. The dry down is the only reason i bought GIT for.It depends what aspect of Green Irish Tweed you like so much. If you're looking for a similar but cheaper alternative then as others have said Davidoff Cool Water in its vintage form (the italic script, pre 2004 logo) would be the one to look at.
Rumour has it that Pierre Bourdon was the perfumer for both Green Irish Tweed and Cool Water. The difference between them being primarily that the Creed version was amped up with higher quality ingredients and the trademark Ambergris/Ambroxan accord and Cool Water used cheaper more synthetic ingredients intended for a cheaper more mass appeal product.
Another alternative in the same vein would be (as previously suggested) Floris's JF. This is similar to both Green Irish Tweed and Cool Water with Floris's twist on it.
Another slightly left of centre suggestion would be Geoffrey Beene's Grey Flannel. This doesn't smell like Green Irish Tweed or Cool Water but has many similarities to both of them. For a fascinating insight and analysis of the hows and whys read this -

This is a really good answer. Not really the same, but it may give you a similar feel.Gentle Fluidity Silver
