Only after i got a decant of git i saw the dry down of git is very natural and not synthetic like tres nuit . Coolwater is a more blue, aquatic, synthetic smelling fragrance, wheras GIT smells way more complex, green, and classy with that unmistakable Creed signature ambergris dry down. In my opinion there is just something superior with Green Irish Tweed, likely due to the better quality ingredients, but they are nearly identical IMO.
There is nothing about the scent of GIT that confers a sense of pretentiousness or self-aggrandizement - it's the comfort food of masculine niche perfumery.
While there is absolutely no DNA connection whatsoever, GIT can be clearly understood as Aventus' older, more worldly brother - what Aventus would aspire to be when he truly become a MAN.

Green Irish Tweed by Creed is a classic Fougere fragrance.
Green Irish Tweed opens with top notes of iris and lemon verbena. The base notes are ambergris and Mysore sandalwood. The nose behind this fragrance is Olivier Creed Sixth Generation. The good news is, people are not exhausted of this scent because nobody wears Cool Water anymore.
I was wearing this the other day at a nice hotel/casino and my brother-in-law, a great gambler that never compliments my fragrances, his eyes were rolling in the back of his head as a he was taking a huge whiff and he exclaimed "Mike, what are you wearing!? What have they done to one of the finest warm weather scents ever created.
But this is not that close anymore so can see why people don't get the comparison. Unlike current Body Kouros, and Reflection man - which are hardly any different to earlier incarnations - this genuinely has changed! The scent is more like leaves after a rain, or a cool stream in the forest. You'll be able to get the Opening notes for a while, About 20 minutes, then the heart notes come in with the Violet leaf very present.
Unfortunately I wasn't able to wait for the drydown.
For me, violet is ever so slightly dominant, but held perfectly in check by a sharp green lemon verbena note.
There is also a hint of powdery sharpness from the iris - but again, that is checked by the creamy woodiness of sandalwood.
Once the lovely green opening dries down, it softens up a bit with hint of iris shining through along with the violet, while still maintaining it's green charm.
