    I prefer GIT as well, but edition blanche is pretty good too. GIT lasts longer, projects more and is versatile.

    GIT is pretty hard to beat for versatility

    Wow, crazy question. I just picked up both. I guess great minds think alike. GIT hands down in my opinion. Edition Blanche is turning out to be a bit of a letdown for me.

    Edition Blanche, although its longevity isn't the greatest on me.

    GIT for sure. Edition Blanche is a quality fragrance, but in no way competes with GIT IMO.

    Why is it a letdown? I've heard projection and longevity are issues sometimes, plus the pepper note in there turns some people off.

    GIT by a large margin.

    I believe GIT would be the best all around fragrance between these two.

    I like them both but I would tend to use Blanche more in cooler months.

    Not a fan of GIT.

    So my vote goes to EdB.

    Green Irish Tweed has an even more pronounced "translucent herbal"-note, hard to describe but genuinely pleasant to sense.

    Tweed, cause I don't like the big dallop of lemon in the EB.

    I haven't smelled GIT but with all the hype going around it can't be bad .
    I dislike Edition Blanche , it does nothing for me , very boring fragrance .
