    Default Chez Bond and GIT

    I live a few blocks away from Bond No. 9's store on the UES and swung by there today. GIT is my favorite/HG fragrance by a mile; I will always have it in my collection and consider it my signature scent. In my opinion, there's nothing else like it. Sure, CW and Chez Bond are of the same genre, but not in the same league.

    Chez Bond in my opinion is a good fragrance, not great. To me, it has a creamier feel and more feminine vide. Overall, I'm not that impressed with it--I find it lighter than GIT and not as natural, dark and deep. Plus I can't stand Bond's bottles and atomizers. Whereas, I absolutely love Creed's--the bottles are so sleek in my opinion and have the best sprayers on the market.

    I'd be interested in hearing what other people think.

    GIT IMO is better in every aspect.

    While GIT does smell more natural and of higher quality, I prefer to WEAR Chez Bond for its smoother and more modern feel. I am in the minority though here.

    Also nothing feminine about Chez Bond IMO.

    I've sampled/tried both and I didn't get anything out of GIT. Chez Bond, on the other hand, I really enjoyed and might purchase in the future.

    Not a fan of Chez Bond, but it's different enough from GIT in the dry down to be a viable alternative. Can't see paying a lot of money for it, but that's a whole other argument.

    GIT > Chez Bond. I also really love Cool Water. Can't go wrong with any of these. Chez bond is not worth buying imo when you can buy Cool Water or GIT.

    I think both GIT & Chez Bond are exceptional fragrances, but I find I reach for Chez Bond a little bit more. Chez Bond has a very subtle tea note that I like, and it seems to have a little better longevity IMO. Otherwise, they are extremely similar.

    Both are good but I prefer GIT.

    I agree. I love that subtle tea note in Chez Bond.
    We're all in the same game; just different levels. Dealing with the same hell; just different devils.

    I think I liked Chez Bond better but need to do a comparison again.

    Surprised GIT is losing so far

    Another vote for Chez Bond having smelt GIT and Cool Water as well

    GIT smells better to me and prefer it over CW and Chez Bond. I own all three and sport them all.

    Chez is a linear, creamy violet. GIT has more character. It is lively and has a natural feel. I prefer GIT but on some days chez might be a tame option. A similar green musky vibe can be had with EL Pleasures which I enjoy just as much and is cheaper.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?
