to my relatively uncultured (but honest) nose, GIT smells almost 100% identical to Caribbean Joe, which literally goes for about . But then again, I never liked Cool Water either, so it's not surprising. Quite a few Creed (and other niche) fragrances smell horrible to me.
And what may have been a revelation of a scent back in the 80's, it's nothing special in the present. I had this on one night going out to movies with the wife and the girl behind the register in the next line said oh my God you smell great what is that! Top is fresh, grassy, earthy, peppery, woody, masculine. My first cologne from Creed house was Aventus, and I did not get any quality as I expect based on it reviewers. It has a great quality and very pleasant scent character but i tell you what, and this is coming from someone who loves Creed, Armaf Tres Nuit did an absolutely blinding job replicating this scent character!
I know I'll catch some flak from the fanboys out there, but all the pretentious nonsense notwithstanding, GIT should be renamed "MEH." Don't believe me? Her approach wasn’t the best but the point is the complement. It lasts and even though it has been around since 1985 it is still a killer fragrance. GIT is my second; on my skin GIT smell better than Aventus and I get 12 hour performance. I would go as far as saying it is the best like for like clone on the market, smelling at least 95% similar.
One of the signature scents of the house of Creed, this "walk through the Irish countrywide" is a favorite of many celebrities.
The fragrance is rich, fresh, sporty and unforgettable.
This and Coolwater have similarities in the DNA, but this is more green, and Coolwater is more aquatic.
