    First time seeing this. Amusing and Interesting but could not envision myself ever indulging in this one.

    I would pass on that one. Would be more prone to get Cool Water or Kiton Men before getting that one.

    I own or previously owned Cool Water and Kiton Men for a few years. Have a good history with both of them (including GIT) Kind of suspect of these new clones being procuced.

    LOL! Yeah, it looks like their scent is trying to be somewhat like Creed's.... I just can't put my finger on what it is though...

    Cereus #7 and Kiton Man are 2 excellent inexpensive GIT themed fragrances. I prefer them over GIT but all 3 are excellent choices. I don't think you need a cheap GIT knock-off when such perfect alternatives exist like Kiton Man and Cereus No. 7

    Its one thing to copy to another scent from another brand, but to copy the name and bottle also is something else. Its a big pass for me.

    I got one at the dollar store (different brand, plain bottle). My guess is that it's a similar scent if not identical. It's sort of a cross between GIT and Cool Water but simpler and "cheaper" smelling, as you would probably expect.
