As classic as a perfectly tailored suit, Green Irish Tweed is one of the signature scents from the House of Creed. Inspired by a refreshing walk through the Irish countryside, the clean fresh air feeling cold against your skin. The scent of the surrounding nature both overwhelming refreshing and richly earthy at once. Freshly cut green grass, rolling hills in the distance, the aromatic tones of herbs and flowers blooming and the grandeur of the enormous trees who have lived centuries. Green Irish Tweed has an invigorating freshness and pure masculinity that have made it not only one of the most artistic fragrances from Olivier Creed, but also one of the most popular among the legion of film stars who have worn this scent such as Cary Grant, Clint Eastwood, Robert Redford and George Clooney.

HOW IT WEARS
Green Irish Tweed is an Eau de Parfum so we generally get 6 – 8 hours on the skin. This fragrance opens with a fresh and clean bang; the Verbena is uplifting and takes you immediately to nature. As Green Irish Tween develops the soft and light floral note of Violet Leaves comes out creating such an elegant yet masculine scent. Green Irish Tweed remains fresh, green and uplifting throughout its wear, there is a clean countryside air quality to it that is gentle yet always there. Good silage – strong but not too strong, it’s a more understated gentleman wearing this scent.
We love the interpretation of nature in this scent, it is bright and green yet never sharp. There is a soft sensibility to Green Irish Tweed that lends itself to the gentleman we can imagine wearing this fragrance. Strong, refined and secure, yet never needing to prove this, it’s all the charming way that they project themselves.
