    Default GIT and VE - 2 aquatics?

    I know at least one other person who agrees with me that GIT has an oceanic drydown. If 2 people agree it must be objective, a psychotic woman once told me. Why don't the reviews ever mention this? Are we insane?


    And one of the most interesting things about the scent to me is that I smell water, fresh water this time. Does anyone else get this? It's a very prominent note of the fragrance, I think: fresh water.

    what's the temperature of that water you smell?
    warm? tepid? cool?

    I get a bit of ocean too, the most likely culprit is the inheirent nature of the ambergris.

    I'd hardly call VE an aquatic though. GIT--perhaps.

    I smell water!!! I'd say cool water, no allusion intended, spring water, a bubbling spring...

    but maybe hot water has a stronger scent?

    I can smell it! Water isn't odorless!

    GIT: There is definitely a "mineral" water smell on drydown. I find it pleasant and unique. It is not the Creed note.

    VE: I too find there to be a slight aquatic scent, but not as pronounced.

    I don't perceive anything oceanic about either one of them.

    With five woody notes, Vetiver Extraordinaire is best described as a classic/crisp woody scent. Green Irish Tweed is a fresh fougere with no evidence of anything oceanic. The oceanic/marine Creeds are Millesime Imperial, Erolfa and Silver Mountain Water.

    Not the slightest hint of any oceanic/watery/aquatic in GIT. At least, not in the sense of say Aqua Mutu, which I don't like, but which is pure seawater.
    Though, maybe my senses fool me, as I don't find any aquatic in Laguna PH, which many basenoters claim does have lots of it.

    Aqua Motu isn't water to me, it's light coke after ice has melted. Diluted light coke. Not too nice

    I think it is the (rather strong) pink pepper note you mean? I had never thought of it like that, but if I try I think I can see what you mean.
