This is one of those threads which I must kick in my two scents. I discovered Green Irish Tweed in 2000, long before I became a Basenoter. It was due to the recommendation of the Neimans SA, which turned out to be an excellent choice. I found my receipt the other day and I paid $120 USD for a four ounce black flask. Ah, inflation!
Which is better? You must be joking! To my nose, GIT is FAR superior and exudes a very refined sense of class. It really was one of my first fragrance loves.
I sampled Cool Water once, and once was enough! I simply do not get the comparisons at all. Yes, they are similar fragrances, but where GIT exudes quality and class, Cool Water is horrific synthetic crap that I could not wait to wash off.
Best to Everyone,
