1. Nope. GIT is GIT. Lots of compliments. Never been mistaken for CW.
2. Yes, I have found some good deals online. It's spotty, though, when it comes to Creed. Been almost ripped-off a couple of times. Had to send back bottles that were either fake or had gone bad. Got my money back, in each case. Still, it's best to buy Creed in good department stores. That way you can smell the actual bottle you're buying before you lay out the cash. Some department store bottles can go bad, too. For that kind of money, you should make sure it's good before you buy.
