Creed’s Green Irish Tweed (a fine fragrance) and an Edwin Jagger razor (a fine razor)

with 3 comments

Today I was struck anew by the fougère fragrance of Creed’s Green Irish Tweed. No wonder it is so often imitated (in a plethora of “Green-Irish-Tweed-style” shaving soaps). The lather, with the little Vie-Long brush was excellent owing to a few sessions of studying process by making lather in a bowl. The consistency was exactly right and the fragrance was wonderful.

This Edwin Jagger razor seemed especially good this morning. It’s easy to understand why the Edwin Jagger line is so popular (and the head so imitated, with a plethora of clones). Three passes left my face perfectly smooth and comfortable, and a splash of GIT EDT finished gthe shave — and the sun is shining! (as you see).

  1. I also have the GIT soap and EdT. This may seem strange, Michael, but I have found that the EdT is a fine fragrance match for the Proraso Green soap and splash, which I like to use during the hot months here is southern Arizona. I wonder whether the older of the two sets (i.e., Proraso or GIT) is a deliberate or accidental copy of the other.

  2. Could be. I don’t have any Proraso Green but I don’t recall the similarity of the fragrances.

  3. One more thing Michael: I was sorting through my stash of Saponificio Varesino soaps (“Soapmakers of Little Varese” if I have guessed correctly) and I remembered that, to my barbaric nose, Felce Aromatica smells suspiciously like GIT, so if you have a puck you may give it a try and see if you agree–it may provide an excellent and much cheaper substitute.
