    Question Scents similar to Cool Water?

    I know this has probably been done to death or whatever but bare with me. Out of all the fragrances I tried out with small samples such as 212 Men, L'eau D'Issey, and Le Male my female friends and my sister say that they like Cool Water the most. I like the other scents that I mentioned, but deep down Cool Water is my favorite. It doesn't give me a headache or make me feel and I really enjoy wearing it more than the others. So, are there any scents out there similar to Cool Water that is not above $80??

    Aspen is the closest scent to cool water you will find and it is approximately $15 online for the 4 oz bottle. It actually smells better than cool water IMHO b/c it smells much less synthetic.

    I find Diesel fuel for life homme to share a similar vibe with cool water but the former is tangy raspberries with a creamy touch to it and without any aquatic properties , so i really am unable to find what is causing the similarity.

    And it has great longevity and projects quiet decent but a lot more expensive than cool water.

    Polo Sport is a slight twist on the Cool Water theme.

    There are many others, of course, but above $80.

    Green Irish Tweed is just a blatant ripoff of Cool Water and can't even compare to it's depth and prestige.



    J/k

    OP said he wanted something less than $80 and $80 is only enough to get a mere glimpse at GIT's bottle or a whiff from the cap.

    I thought Polo Sport and then there is T&H Freshman but how about a new response. I say try Kenzo Fraiche. Similar. I mean if you love wearing Cool Water then you shoud wear Cool Water. Seems when a question is asked the same responses flood forward. Maybe there should be a few added stickies.

    I have tried (and own) most of the frags mentioned above but none comes closer, IMO, than Jacomo de Jacomo Deep Blue. I daresay it is actually much better (blending, smell, smoothness, etc) than Cool Water.

    Another very good alike is the limited edition Boucheron pour Homme Fraicheur (2004 edition)

    +1 on Aspen

    +1 on Jacomo Deep Blue. I was just about to suggest it. And yes, I too believe it is even better than Cool Water.


    Both of these can be had for around $20-$25 shipped for a big bottle. Even less for Jacomo tester (which is a great buy considering even the tester comes with a cap).

    He Wood Rocky Mountain by Dsquared2 - In the enchanting opening, one is treated to a cloud of white pepper, carrying a lovely, cool violet and refreshing, creamy lily. A strong heart with its brawny duet of cedarwood and vetiver makes one sense a wet forest, and carries off the floral accord to join its soothing base. Seguing to that drydown, a melange of warm amber, smoky incense and sensual musk overlay the woody and floral accords. This floral, incense and woody fragrance is one of the best outdoors scents, and is a very versatile fragrance. Wonderfully, the longevity and projection are both excellent.

    While not a dube I thought Bulgari Blu Notte Pour Homme had a similar vibe....and it was a compliment hound aswell...I had a nice run with Cool Water in the early '90's and needed to move on....Unfortunately Bulgari was too similar, which could be cool for you......

    Personally, I'd be more interested in fleshing out my collection to include other kinds of scents, especially since you already own Cool Water.

    The ones that interest me are 360 Red, Joop Nightlife, and Jacomo Deep Blue. Which are worth having?

    to me acqua di gio is a little boring and light. 360 red is sweeter and stronger and less floral. one of my favorite cheap ones

    Another vote for Jacomo Deep Blue and Aspen. Also Cool Water Frozen is a good take on the original.

    360 Red is worth having, unless you already own Aqua Di Gio.

    I haven't tried Joop Nightlife

    Jacomo Deep Blue is worth having

    Aspen is better than Cool Water also, while smelling very similar and around half the price.


    It sounds like you are into fresh/marine smelling scents. There are gazillions of these types of fragrances out there.

    I got rid of this last year because I was bored with it. However, this is such a quality cheapie for those who just want to smell fresh and are not looking to "wow" anyone. Can be worn every day and works well in hot weather. While I don't think this smells like Cool Water, it does have a "watery" feel to it and it never smells synthetic. It will garner a lot of "you smell good" comments. $15 shipped for a big bottle. I actually just bought it on ebay and will get it this week. Unfortunately I won't be wearing it much until it gets warm. I will however, keep it on me to spray for after a workout when I just want to smell like something. Really, the best part about this cologne is that it's plain. It is probably the least offensive fragrance I've ever tried.

    To be quite frank, I don't know of many things close to CW; which is odd, since it has been a top seller for the past 20+ years. Although I do see some resemblance with Aspen, although Aspen is a bit more green, while CW leans slightly toward the aquatic side. Horizon by Guy Laroche actually reminds me of CW to an extent. I look at CW in 2 ways as far as its genre goes. Either a light aromatic green or fougere fragrance or a dark aquatic.

    ugh, not this sh*t again, just wear Cool Water, it smells great, women adore it, and it's reasonably priced.

    p.s. i don't know what some folks have been smelling, but Aspen smells nothing like Cool Water or GIT, more like car pine air freshener.

    Aspen smells much much closer to GIT than Cool Water. It smells like the drydown to GIT. It's uncanny how close it smells considering it's a $15 EDC.
