    In my opinion, easily bottle-worthy.

    GIT can really impress. It's very green and fresh.
    One of the closest things to a "sure thing" scent.

    For me, I'd never want to be without a bottle.

    if GIT is not FBW then you shouldn't purchase scents at all, they would all be a waste of money!

    Definitely worth it IMO. Try Chez Bond while you are at it. I have both and would pick GIT but I know people around me who prefer CB. Either way they are great versatile all year frags

    How do you guys feel about purchasing GIT on ebay ? yes, I know...Retailers are much safer both online and in-person, but what about ebay...Can I hear from some folks who have bought GIT on ebay and what their thoughts were? Were you satisfied ? Whats a good price point to pay for GIT on ebay? What's NOT a good price point to pay on ebay?

    A permanent fixture in my wardrobe and FBW without any shadow of a doubt. Extremely versatile and generally well received workhorse.

    Ebay is a minefield - personally, I wouldn't go there. If you like it enough, pay full retail and have the associated peace of mind. If there are any lingering doubts don't bother - if a deal sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

    Hope it works out for you, but really... considering what the wholesale price on GIT is, I'd be surprised if this one was legitimate (unless it's used, partial bottle). Hint: wholesale price on GIT is more than $100.

    It's a ten out of ten classic in my book when you get a good bottle. The most lush violet note I have experienced in a fragrance.

    It should be very easy to get a sample or try it out in a store before handing over the big bucks.

    Chuck W mentioned Beautyencounter.com for a legit bottle...Where can I get the best possible price without the worry of fakes? And probably should get the 4.0 oz bottle....like I mentioned above...I will smell it again at Neiman's tomorrow and then shoot home and order it online to save some money....

    I do think Chez Bond is very nice smelling and very much "GIT"-like (maybe even better in the opening), but the dry down is not comparable. GIT does seem to have the great dry down that is hard to equal. I like Hamptons over Silver Mountain Water, but for the "GIT" smell, I'd go with Creed....IF you choose to buy it.

    I'm always partial to Fragrancenet. You can almost always find a 21% discount code, and coupled with the additional 6% cash back if you buy it from Fragrancenet through eBates, it makes the prices hard to beat.

    The only thing I've noticed (and seen others mention) about GIT is that it does seem to smell best after it has been sprayed and oxygen has been introduced to the bottle. I definitely noticed it with my bottle, and I think this explains why the testers at Neiman's always seem to have the fuller fragrance than a brand new bottle of GIT has when sprayed for the first time. I know a lot of people don't believe in fragrances getting better with time, but I do. Olivier Creed has mentioned it, and I can't think of any benefit for him to say such a thing unless he thought it was so. Our own Chris Bartlett has also mentioned that certain ingredients get better with age.....one being Mysore sandalwood....(which GIT has).

    I can vouch for this. If you get a brand new bottle that hasn't been sprayed, sometimes you can't judge how GIT will smell from the first spray. Sad, but true.

    If you are going to buy from eBay, make sure they have actual pics and not stock pics (unless it's the account of a big e-tailer/power seller). Then, make sure the actual pics don't have ridiculous errors on the front like 'Green Frish Tweed' or 'Yreen Irish Tweed', or the picture sleeve outside the box, or cellophane. $100 sounds too good to be true.

    For example, here's one for $121.51 that is 100% legit:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Green-Irish-...-/271493769603

    and here's one for $100 that is 100% fake (if this is the one you were gonna order, I just saved you $100 ):

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Creed-Green-...-/131206274292

    GIT not my thang! But have to admit that it is a FBW and worth to have in a well rounded collection.

    GIT is #1 in my collection. This is the one cologne I think about buying a backup of. I have a sample of Chez Bond, and it has nothing, and I mean nothing on GIT.

    Beautyencounter.com are a viable option. You will have no issues with authenticity and their prices are generally very good.

    Not full bottle worthy in my eyes, doesn't last long enough on my skin and that simply isn't good enough when you're paying three figures for a smell.
