    While I dislike both of them immensely, GIT wins in the quality department, hands down.

    Cool Water is very good. GIT is better.

    Its not even a contest. GIT wins by a very, very wide margin.

    I have owned and wore both. I believe Green Irish Tweed is the better scent.

    According to Turin, Cool Water is better. And as you know, Turin knows best. End of discussion.

    Great persons may be wrong. Churchill: no sport. Turin: CW is better.
    Nevertheless I keep them in high esteem.

    For me CW is an immediate wash-off, whilst I have GIT and love it.

    GIT hands down. I think Turin just gave CW 5 stars for its significance in perfume history and construction aspects irrelevant to the wearer, while GIT did not get 5 stars for being a Creed.

    Turin on GIT: "truly great fragance" ""feels as good as it ever did" " "brilliantly imaginative accord of..." "Brilliant, legible, perfectly balanced, immediately recognizable"

    Turin on CW: "rehashed [GIT] structure" "beautiful ... composition" "cheerful, abstract, cheap ... lethally effective" "`now let women wear it for a decade or two."

    Which sounds better to you, brilliant and perfectly balanced or beautiful and cheap?

    Nobody would pay >$200 for CW. However, if GIT was $40 and sold in Macy's everyone and their mother would be wearing it.

    Creed GIT over CW, no contest. CW smells synthetic and cheap, GIT smells refined, crisp, and rich.

    I think that's why CW was invented. Everyone in the industry knew GIT had all the makings of a mass appeal fragrance.

    I never realized the fragrances were even similar until I started reading some of the recent threads. I was considering purchasing GIT in the winter and then someone on here mentioned it smells like a urinal puck and when I went to try it, that's all I could smell from it. Now with all the discussions about CW and GIT, I reinvestigated and smelled CW and GIT. They are quite similar. GIT may be come off as being better blended and softer, but CW has a more dynamic and fresher appeal to it. GIT may have the appeal of being exclusive as well. So to counter what someone mentioned above, CW may be held in a higher esteem if it was retailing for over $100 and GIT may be considered the opposite if it was mass marketed.

    Except me. I wouldn't wear GIT if Santa Claus gave me a bottle.

    And if someone told you not to think of Pink Elephants would you be able to get them quickly off your mind?

    I love both, but GIT's evolution sets it above CW, which is much more linear. GIT's middle and bottom are great.

    In my opinion, there is no question to this whatsoever. GIT is simply better quality by far and a far better scent. The drydown is the proof.. on me anyway.

    I started wearing GIT last year to work. Many of my co-workers have complimented me on it. Once, a stranger asked if I was wearing Coolwater. So clearly, there is some resemblance.

    I initially bought both. I wear GIT a lot. I hardly ever wear Coolwater. To me, it's a GIT knockoff. 'Nuff said.
