I got Eden's version of Green Irish tweed and it's pretty decent. Quite strong at first but settles down. Longevity doesn't seem amazing but Creed never seems to last long either. The dry down isn't as interesting/complex as the real version but nice enough. Good value for the money.

I've also just ordered small bottles of Eden's VIW (based on LFCs feedback) and Aventus.

The VIW is good, the Aventus I’m not sure I trust anymore, first lot was good but most recent was missing half the notes.

If anyone needs a work one for the missus, Zara’s Jo Malone collaboration is getting good reviews and is dirt cheap.

I don't actually have the real VIW but have Aventus, so will do a comparison.

Found this pretty decent, starts off as dior homme but then changes for the better imo. Can get it really cheap as well.

Probably the wrong time to buy as I like this more in summer, but will still get a few wears over winter.

Yeah I really want to try this, Naxos and Erba Pura for Summer.


I’ve tried these, Uden Overdose and Overture were nice. Opera like piss, couldn’t stand it.

Bought this and really like it, but sometimes I think it’s not strong enough and I can’t smell it on myself.
But then other people smell it on me and really like it
