    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.

    Wings and the dollar store's "our impression of Creed" or something to that effect.

    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.

    If you want Cool Water for under $80, then why not get Cool Water?

    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)

    Ok, forget about about the price I mentioned. Also I want something that is work/school friendly. Not something obnoxious.

    +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......
