GIT is beautiful top to base. Green opening, more floral as it dries; but overall it's pretty linear, or maybe just super smooth. I've gotten more compliments though, from the ladies on its dry down, so that could tell you something.
Just got a bottle of this in the mail today. I have to agree it stays pretty linear for the most part, bearing in mind I have a cold right now so my sense of smell is a little off. I like the initial burst of GIT the best though. Is it me or does anyone else get a dark mossy green vibe from the fragrance?
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)
The best part of GIT is when you wash it off. HA! Actually it's a perfectly fine smell, I just can't see having so much love for it. Then again, I think Jean Nate is fabulous so I obviously have no taste.
The scent grows richer, he knows he must be near
He finds a long passageway lit by chandelier
Each step he takes, the perfumes change
From familiar fragrance to flavours strange
A magnificent chamber meets his eye
Um....she'd be displeased with me for posting this but the response of Mrs. J. is, um, uh....favorable. That's the best part of GIT in our home. Explosive? No. Movieworthy? Not a chance. Just favorable, in a long-time-married sort of way.

I've known GIT for about 3 years now, since I joined BN. I've always respected it, but since I've always hated Cool Water, I've never been able to shake the connection. I must be incredibly sensitive to a note in the topnotes, a very sharp, neon-like candied violet/aquatic something-or-other. Three nights ago, I put some of my sample on, and went into bed to watch some TV. After those initial notes died down, I was hit with a truly SUBLIME mid-note and base-note progression. It finally clicked, and I got what everyone was talking about. No joke, GIT's drydown is one of the best I've ever smelled. It's THAT good.
