I have samples of GIT and RW and frankly, I chose to buy the GIT.
GIT for me, is as you say comforting- and while yes, its overworn, that doesnt detract from its beauty. I find that with GIT there is an odd, translucence to the frag I find that to be very distinct from anything else.
RW is nice- citric in a good way, a high class citrus if you will. But thats it, no where near as magical as GIT.
