Come join me for The Tweeds of March.  I'll be using a different Green Irish Tweed inspired soap for every shave this month.  Let's celebrate the coming of spring in style!  Come post all of your GIT SOTD photos here.

Very nice.  I actually don't see that one very often.  I have the Tres Nuit as well.  The scent is nice, it just seems to lack longevity.  Nice double totem you've got going there, too.

Thanks,

My Tres Nuit got decent longevity. Between 7-9 hours. I dunno if my batch is different then yours. I heard that the CDNI is not what it used to be recently...

As for the totem, I was going to do a 4 items high one like I did last week, but I didn't have the time I needed to do it. I really didn't want my EdP bottle to drop on the floor. I needed to be very careful.

The Tweeds of March shave 5 was not the best shave soap I've tried. Lather was airy and bubbly, no matter how much soap I tried to load. It felt like trying to shave with dish washing detergent. It was a little better when I took the brush out of the equation and hand lathered. Good thing I have about 20 other GIT soaps to choose from. This does make a great bath soap, though. Left my skin feeling nice and soft.

I do not.  I've smelled a decant before, but it's a bit too pricey for me.  I've found less expensive alternatives that I enjoy just as much.

I do not understand, if you do not own a bottle of this scent, how you would be able to form any basis for comparison to the original. Are you evaluating these on the ability of the proprietor to match the original scent or on the basis of performance?

I never mentioned evaluating them at all.  I just said I was planning to use nothing but Green Irish Tweed inspired shaving soaps for the entire month of March (and maybe into April).

I do plan on putting together my "Best Of" list and doing a video on my YouTube channel when I'm done.  That list will consist of a combination of my favorite performers and my favorite scents.  Being as close to the original as possible isn't how I personally define 'best'.  I've smelled the original, so I do have a decent reference point, but that's not my goal.
