Creed without a doubt is one of the most popular brands in the market.
If you are looking for a brand that can give you the best signature fragrances, you can never go wrong with Creed.
And ever since they released their very first scent, the brand has successfully launched a wide array of different kinds of scents that have made it big.
Among these scents is the Green Irish Tweed. Does it live up to expectations?
I am a fan of classic Fougere and whenever I shop for a certain type of scent, I always go back to my first choice.
So when I finally came across Creed’s Green Irish Tweed, I knew that this scent would be one of my top favorites.
What makes this fragrance really popular? Let’s breakdown the details and key points.
Pros And Cons Of Creed Green Irish Tweed Mens Cologne
- A Top Classic Signature Fragrance By Creed
- Made From Premium Ingredients Giving You That Really Rich, Striking, Earthy And Masculine Strength
- Perfectly Suitable For Men Across All Ages And Professions Since It Gives You That Great-smelling Fragrance.
- Perfect For Spring/winter, Long Lasting
- Some May Have A Different Opinion About The Composition Of This Scent.
- Not The Best Choice For Hot And Humid Weather
The Green Iris Tweed is part of the brand’s signature scents that was launched in 1985.
As a classic Fougere, this product has become an instant hit and a favorite among celebrities.
This particular fragrance was initially created for Cary Grant.
It has this really fresh and rich scent that makes it a cut out above the rest, the kind of scent that is sporty, striking and not to mention unforgettable.
The top notes of this scent include lemon verbena and iris followed by middle notes including violet leaves. The base notes include Mysore sandalwood and ambergris.
Composition: The fragrance opens up with this really rich and earthy scent giving you that freshness.
I know some people may not find the opening scent striking. But I like the mossy kind of scent.
And what makes the composition of this scent really striking and unique is after the top notes, there’s the transition to citrus notes which is very refreshing and smooth.
It gives you that elegant fragrance that is masculine.
Unlike other signature fragrances created for men that can be overbearing or too strong, this perfume has just the right blend especially when the lemon verbena kicks in.
In terms of projection, this is really great. Just a piece of an advice, do not use too much since even though it is not too strong putting too much would result to overkill.
Best Use: With the elegant and rich aroma of Green Iris Tweed by Creed, it is perfectly suitable for all types of occasion and in any period of time.
I use it when I go to work and it lasts until the evening which is amazing.
The only thing I notice about this perfume is that it does not hold well when it is very hot and humid.
Green Iris Tweed is perfect for early winter or spring season.
Longevity: How about its longevity? For many times that I have used this perfume, I can say that it has a pretty much strong longevity.
It can last about 7 to 10 hours a day which is good enough although of course there are other perfumes that can last from morning to evening.
It is a spring cologne that is best suitable for cool weather. But even then with the quality of its scent, you can still use it for summer.
Just don’t expect too much when it comes to longevity.
With all the positive points for the Green Iris Tweed, this perfume is definitely a must try. Should you purchase it? The answer would really depend on your preference.
Since I am into classic Fougere, the skin of scent that gives you that mossy, earthy, citrus and rich aroma, I like how the Green Iris Tweed smell.
It has this very masculine scent that any man would like as it makes you more appealing and really attractive. In terms of longevity, I can say it is pretty much decent.
You may not just find it the best choice for a summer cologne. But if you are going to wear this scent for winter or for spring, it is really a great choice. This fragrance will surely draw compliments.
