    Fragrances will often elicit diverse comments from different individuals. It's normal.

    Weird comment...I don't think that GIT smells anything like Irish Spring. It's weird how people's noses are soooooooo different and interpret scents sooooooooo differently!

    I had very high expectations from GIT reading various reviews and posts on BN. I tried it and that's exactly what I get from it as well, high end soap. Needless to say I didn't go for a full bottle.

    I kinda agree. Its very Basic but it does the job right in a "green" fragrance. Im not too big on it myself.

    For the price, I think you are better off purchasing a bottle of cool water.

    I don't know. I love GIT, and I would go for it over Cool Water. Maybe that's because it's my dad and my brother-in-law's signature scent. GIT is ever so slightly different and it's less synthetic.

    Doesn't smell like soap to me at all. I leave the high end soap smell to Neroli Portofino

    This just goes on to show us the subjective world of fragrances.

    Read that phrase and already knew it was about GIT. I received similar comments. I think it has to do with the persons reference point. If the only thing greenish that the person had smelled before that is soap then you reached the limit of their fragrance vocab. GIT is probably not subpar it's doing exactly what it's formulated to do.

    If you put it that way I guess you are right

    Every single fragrance will elicit a negative comment from somebody.

    Honestly, GIT is one of my most complimented.

    Sounds like she knows nothing about what good frags smell like. Irish Spring is a great smell.

    There are indeed some soapy associations in this fragrance, at least to my nose, but if so in a superior, understated elegant and almost "ethereally clean" way.
