GIT for me.
Creed Green Irish Tweed
Davidoff Cool Water
Truefitt & Hill Freshman
Bond no. 9 Chez Bond
Which is the best?
Considering: Price, Longevity, Scent and Silliage...
Personally, I find Chez Bond to be the best of the four, I'm not a Bond no. 9 fan and will never buy it (whereas I own GIT). Chez Bond just seems to have a bit more about it!

GIT for me.
Is the juice worth the squeeze?

GIT is in a class of its own.
Haha how many times can we discuss this? Damn.
Chez Bond works way better on me than GIT.....I do Love and respect GIT and feel that it is a fantastic fragrance.....I just like Chez Bond better.....Gary
The horse gets its beating again...
Cool Water it is for me.
I prefer old Cool Water from back in the 90s to all of them, even though I respect GIT and consider it a work of art. But the new Cool Water reformulation is just terrible, so I'd go with GIT. Haven't tried Freshman as it is quite an unknown cologne in UK.
My signature scents:
Current: GREEN IRISH TWEED (since June 2010)
Past: BOIS DU PORTUGAL (Oct. 09 - May 10)
Past Past: EAU SAUVAGE (good 15 years !!!)
Past Past Past: LANVIN L'HOMME (2 years)
Past Past Past Past: EAU SAUVAGE again (3 years or so)
GIT of course...
What about the Cool Water flankers? Like some of the summer editions? I have never been a fan of Cool Waters, but I tried one of the summer editions at the Marshalls nearby, and I found it rather pleasing. It had some of the notes from the original CW, but just a little more citrusy and pleasant. I had to wonder why none of the flankers seem to get a lot of chatter.
If I drive to Shoppers 10 minutes away. I can pick up a 125ml bottle of Cool Water for $20. You really can't get better than that.
From this list, clearly GIT
Chez Bond amps up what's best in this style of fresh fougere and leaves out the unpleasant parts. If you haven't tried it, do yourself a favour. It's a winner.
Chez Bond's top and heart notes are so extremely well done as to seriously rival GIT....however.....it's drydown becomes this terribly powdered grape candy note, with almost no wood or heavy smooth ambergris, none of the masculinity of GIT's basenotes.
Hence, I rank them like so:
1. Creed Green Irish Tweed
2. Truefitt & Hill Freshman
3. Bond no.9 Chez Bond
Another shout out in this contest, worrthy of contention, is Caswell-Massey's Greenbriar

JF by Floris is another Cool Water clone.
If you wear fragrances for your own sake then pick GIT, if you do it for others pick Cool Water. Noone besides enthusiasts will EVER tell the difference.
Creed Green Irish Tweed
Holy Moley, how many poll's can you start in a day. I am polled out
“Perfume is like cocktails without the hangover, like chocolate without the calories, like an affair without tears, like a vacation from which you never have to come back.”
My pick: Creed Green Irish Tweed
Green irish tweed all the way! Chez bond is nice too, but if I had to pick one I'd go with GIT.
Prefer Chez Bond but I already have GIT. If I empty this bottle I gonna go for Bond's... But that's highly unlikely.
