I love the GIT drydown, but I also love the lemon-based opening.
Are there any frags which has a drydown similar to GIT's opening.
Let's all say it together.......1........2........3.........Cool Water
You must be the new Salim. And to answer your question. Chez Bond maybe.
But yes, Davidoff Cool Water.
Also check out Bond No.9 Chez Bond - a more feminine take on GIT and Cool Water, but still very unisex IMHO.
Also try Freshman from Truefitt & Hill, and there is an other one, a cheapie, I forgot its name, that also smells pretty similar to GIT......

OMG. Cool Water DOES NOT have a lemon note. If any of you read properly, that alone should disqualify it.
I like G.I.T. a lot. But damn, it is over rated. It does however makes for a descent and safe office scent.
Is GIT's opening similar to Cool Water's ... Yes
BUT while GIT's opening is smoother and greener, Cool Water's opening is harsh, sharp and synthetic.
If you want Creed Lemon then I would suggest Bois de Cedrat.
Cool Water Summer Fizz, my favorite of the limited edition flankers, has a nice citrus opening that lasts into the trademark Cool Water dry down. I actually like this flanker quite a bit more than regular CW. The only downside is it has shorter longevity. Summer Fizz was the 2006 version of the yearly CW flanker, but can still be found easily online for around $30. Also, to me, the dry down in this one is more reminiscent of the "muskier/mossier" vintage Cool Water. If you are looking for a nice fizzy citrus/Cool Water combo, I highly recommend this one.
