Hey desmond, just for for the record...Like Pipsta said, to an extent, you have to trust your nose, because I've started threads like this where folx swore that the similarities between two fragrances weren't there, and I just KNEW they were. Then later, finally, someone(s) came in and co-signed me. So I dunno. However, I have a sample vial of Play Intense right beside me as I type. Very familiar with the scent. And my father use to wear Cool Waters all the time, so I am very familiar with that one two. And to me, they are TOTALLY different scents.
