Clone Formula: Green Irish Tweed (Creed)

Green Irish Tweed is one of the most brilliantly constructed green fougere type fragrances ever created. In this, my version, I am including all of the original non-IFRA and non-EU compliant ingredients because it is profoundly beautiful in its original form. You can always do substitutes if you are concerned with those regulating bodies. Additionally, I have made a few improvements (at least I believe them to be so) to enhance the fragrance with ingredients that have come on the...

So many Formulas at the moment. Nice!
I just have to replace 2 ingredients if possible.
Madranol and Methyl Octine Carbonate.
Any way to substitute for them?

Thank you for the good suggestions.
WIll do it like that!
I got some Undecavertol and i like the smell of that AC really much.
Wil get some Madranol maybe when i decide to buy some things from overseas but first i will try it with Ionone Alpha then.
I havnt smelled the real Green Irish Tweed, just a Clone from ParfumeParlor (thats a UK based cloning company) and thats a really nice smell in my opinion.
I’m sure this Formula here will smell much better

Sounds really good!
So after some research i am able to get Violettyne. Its better than undecavertol when i understand it right.
And for galbanolene super, could i increase galbanum oil or dynascone?
Or maybe using Spirogalbanone instead?

I think you mean Petitgrain Water Absolute with Eau de Brouts Absolute.
What do you think about Orange Flower Water absolute to incorporate in this formula or replacing the normal orange Flower absolute or neroli with it?

Okay yes i understand that. There are 2 different types i can get. The Petitgrain Water absolute is from Citrus aurantium variation amara Marocco (Petitgrain water absolute aka orange brouts absolute is a solvent extracted material from orange leaves hydrolate. With its dark green colour and dark deep scent this absolute needs to be used with a light hand) And Orange Flower Water Absolute is from Citrus aurantium variation amara Tunisia. (When neroli essential oil is produced the left over distillation water will contain water soluble components from the essential oil. This by-product which most may know in the form… Read more »

Would you use Violettyne over Methyl Octine Carbonate Replacer 0912 (IFF) ?

So its probably better to use pure Violiff instead of the MOC replacer blend?

Yes you are right.
I thought about getting MOC from PerfumersWorld but i dont know about the quality from them.
Havnt found another supplier for small amounts

That is good to know!
I was sceptical because of the prices there and sometimes they dont specify 100% what Material it is, for example Habanolide there has the CAS No of Globalide (Symrise)
But i Like it really much that u can buy everything in 1 Gram and Not premade sizes

Do you think Orange Flower Tunisia CO2 (Robertet) works as Orange Flower Absolute? With the CAS No i find different Things on TGSC.
Its the only Orange Flower Material that perfumers supply House offers besides neroli

I looked Into edenbotanicals but its 17$ shipping for me and for the small amount i need its much i think but when the quality is good i would get it there.
I thought about getting Orange Blossom abs Tunisia from Hermitage Oils but that Starts at 2,5grams for 60€ , i dont need that much at the Moment

I’m really intrigued to see how vertofix works at this level. I have always used it sparingly due to failed attempts at larger quantities. It’s always great to learn new things! I’m looking forward to putting this together tonight! On a side note, I always hoped for a great use for my methyl octine carbonate, it is one of my absolute favorite smells!! It’s easily one of the most unique and distinctive features on Fahrenheit and other copies/analogies of Fahrenheit.

Felling thrilled with the possibility to compare your nose on Cool Water and compare to this one and see the light 20/20 FullHD.
Orange Blossom doing more for the human race more than Sinatra did in 59 albums

Fougères are definitely above the creativity

Another one, thanks for sharing

Hi Jamie, i don’t understand the question of MOC. IN formula write moc but after write in blog MHC. Is this an error?

at the concentration reported in formula the moc you can’t use it. But if put it in the formula at a low concentration (es. 1g) and put in 2g of mhc, then the mixture could work and not would be restricted!

Even with Alpha-Damascone we are out of IFRA if the concentration of the fragrance is used at 20% EDP. 10% is ok.

Hi, Jamie. Really 2.5% of AAG? Thanks! G. 🙂

I tried to make a small batch, but there must be something wrong with my AAG because it is too intrusive when I smell on a blotter (from the concentrate), or maybe it requires a long maceration so as to balance itself? I’ll see how it behaves in a little while.

Hi G. How’s your batch now. Has it balanced itself. Did you manage to use all the ingredients listed? I’m very interested of this formula. Thanks

Thanks, I completely forgot for them. Any success with the recreation? I have tried another GIT formula witch is so much of hedione and too much floral accords. Not even close to GIT inspiration. Hope this one is better.
