Creed’s Green Irish Tweed

with one comment

Following Eddie’s suggestion, the soap with lid removed. Creed’s Green Irish Tweed is the fragrance favored by Cary Grant, FWIW, and the soap, though pricey, is extremely good. A very fine lather with the Simpson Emperor 3 Super, and then three smooth passes with the Feather stainless razor, still using a Feather blad of many shaves. Extremely smooth face, to which I applied a hearty splash of Acqua di Parma.

From the Creed site:

CREED Green Irish Tweed

As classic as a perfectly tailored tuxedo on Oscar night, CREED Green Irish Tweed is loyally worn by today’s Hollywood leading men who ask for it by name. A film colony legend like the stars who wear it, 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 successful.

Classification: Green / Woods / Classic

Characteristics: As refreshing as a walk through the Irish countryside, Green Irish Tweed is one of the signature scents of the House of CREED. Rich, fresh, green, spicy, sporty, original and unforgettable.

  • Top Notes: French verbena, Florentine iris
  • Middle Notes: Violet leaves
  • Base Notes: Sandalwood from Mysore, ambergris

  1. Acqua di Parma Colonia is one of my favorite aftershaves. You just reminded me…I need to pick up some more.
