    Default What to replace my Cool Water with?

    Ok I've used up all of my Cool Water and am looking to get a new scent but for the same usage (work scent and daily wear). I've tried out Bulgari Aqua, Chanel Allure Sport and Issey Miyake pour homme, any other suggestions I should try out and which one of tose 3 would be best? I have dry skin so a frag that has good longevity and projection would be ideal.

    Chanel Platinum Egoiste

    I tried Egoiste a few months ago and it just doesn't seem to work on my skin, very faint top notes with virtually undetectable drydown.

    I'm not a fan of those you mentioned but Chez Bond lasts long and is less aquatic but similar and perfect for work. Bleu de Chanel also is a good work scent with decent projection.

    Go with the Issey Miyake out of your aforementioned three - it lasts on me quite a bit, even during my drier winter months and keeps that aquatic vibe you seem to like. I like the Summer Edition a bit better.

    Chanel Allure Sport is my current everyday work scent. Excellent longevity. Strong little burst at the start and then it will dry down to a perfect work scent. Actually a very versatile scent.

    Go get you some spicy stuff instead! But a good replacement for Cool Water would be Bleu de Chanel

    I actually love Bleu de Chanel but it is pretty much another Allure flanker - which to my mind is not a bad thing at all. Sport or Bleu would both be fine.

    The now discontinued, but still marketed online: Davidoff Relax- a very smooth yet powerhouse frag with a smooth finish, some airy-watery notes and an overly good lasting power

    Ok thanks for the replys! Haven't thought about Bleu as I heard it has spotty longevity?

    If you still like the concept and smell of Cool Water, you may try Jacomo de Jacomo Deep Blue. To my nose, this is Cool Water refreshed and greatly improved. Good sillage and longevity as well.

    Piazza di Spagna Uomo from Roccobarocco is more or less a copy of Cool Water; in fact, in my view it is far better than Cool Water.
    It may be a little hard to track down and may be discontinued, but it is not expensive.

    I would say that if Platinum Egoiste doesn't project or last on your skin, they Bleu isn't going to.

    Just go for the "real thing" and pick up a bottle of Green Irish Tweed. Reapply throughout the delay via decant if necessary.

    Green Irish Tweed indeed...i sampled this a couple of times and wasn't really impressed. I gave it a full wearing a few times now and now i am really blown away by this fragrance...it's just so wonderfully good, i love it. I smell the similarities with Cool Water but GIT is much more interresting and elegant. Highly recommended

    Im not a creed fan obviously but Creed - Green Irish Tweed would be ur choice

    You can get it cheaply online, but remember to buy at reputable online stores. And most importantly dont go on here and ask if its fake =]

    Try Jf by Floris. I prefer it to both GIT and CW. It has more citrus and though it's not a projection monster, it wears very well.

    Green Irish Tweed most definitely.

    Another vote for Bleu. Of course you need to test it on skin, but it lasts a long time on me.

    I'd go for Chanel's Sycomore to be honest.
