    Default Scents similar to Green Irish Tweed? (NOT COOLWATER)

    After disliking all my fragrances (she 'didn't mind' Terre d'Hermes though)... and dozens of fragrances at the fragrance counter, the only fragrance my girlfriend liked was GIT. But she said it smells a bit too generic/smells similar to something common (i wonder what...hahaha).

    She likes masculine fragrances, and pretty much despises anything with vanilla in it. Doesn't like gourmand fragrances, soapy fragrances, or anything that smells too strongly of one ingredient such as diptyque philosykos (figs) or chanel allure edition blanche (lemons) because they don't smell like cologne.

    I'm a big fan of vanilla and gourmands... so she makes me sad. But might as well get ONE fragrance she likes.. she's so damn picky though

    Any recommendations that fit the bill that has a similar vibe to GIT?

    I think the best solution here is to get a new girlfriend.


    To be absolutely honest, I haven't found anything like GIT other than CW... Its a great fragrance (GIT)
    The hunt for a Signature Fragrance is not an easy one! I see the light at the end of the tunnel! Edit: 2015... I've given up and given in

    Neil4Speed: hahaha mayhaps...

    ooh one more thing, i have to be able to smell it! (so designer/popular niche brand found in department stores) I tried blind buying a few...but didn't work out too well.

    it doesn't necessarily have to smell like GIT, but something that gives off a similar vibe would be a good start for me. and it needs to have decent silliage/projection..

    a couple more suggestions would be really helpful! thanks

    You might want to try Monatle Greyland. Not similar exactly to GIT, but she might like it.

    Heeleys Cuir Plein Fleur goes over well for me. It has that violet that is in git. I enjoy it very much.

    Please hunt down Boucheron Fraicheur 2004.



    I have both and find the similarities amazing. Different enough though, but a better alternative than Cool Water in all ways.

    Another good alternative is Jacomo de Jacomo Deep Blue.

    I agree whole-heartedly. And would add Amouage Silver. Expensive, but it's great and from your description your Lady would love it.

    If her opinion is that important, just ask her to buy your fragrances, then you will be pleasing her, as it seems like that's what really counts.

    Grey Flannel is GIT's precursor, very heavy on the violet leaf. Yet somehow, I doubt she'd like it. You might, though.

    Aspen by Coty smells even more like GIT than Cool Water and it only costs $15 or so for the big 4 oz online. It's greener smelling than cool water and the opening is closer to GIT. I own GIT, CW, and Aspen and I say Aspen is worth a try. It's definitely not as deep or sophisticated as GIT obviously, but it does last longer.

    Try out some Joop Nightflight easy to find and maybe some of the Bulgari line maybe Pour Homme Soir. Light and fresh along those lines.
