    I prefer it over the deep vintage. It is not as dry and a bit more floral I would say. I do love them all though! Lol

    Givenchy Incense for me today.

    Vintage Egoiste is indeed a wonderful sandalwood. I really enjoy the vintage as in most cases the cinnamon note has been tamed through time. Gucci Envy is a great rendition with a healthy dose of ginger. Something about ginger, incense and sandalwood goes together so well. I have some Woto to spare so I'll PM you.

    Conflicted as I am... tonight I’m wearing Green Irish Tweed on my left arm and Stardust on my right. Similarities? Yea, in regards the fresh accord which runs through both. Stardust has woods and amber added (?) which give a creamy and more rounded presentation than GIT. Better? Hmmm. I’m going to say at this point I need more testing of Stardust as the smooth creamy notes and clean sparkling notes are competing with each other instead of singing in unison. Stardust does have great performance on my skin FWIW. Currently it’s a 6.5/10 for me. If I “get it” after several more wearings, then I’ll search out a bottle. Perhaps. If you’re looking for a less expensive version of GIT, looks towards Rasasi Egra. If you’re looking for a unique variation on a GIT theme, Stardust may be your cup of tea.

    Stardust didn't remind me of GIT at all when I sampled it. The stuff is sorta unicorn-ish now on the aftermarket, so I'd still rather just git me some GIT because it's replaceable. XD
    oh look, I have a signature

    I'm also looking for more backups of Antaeus particularly juice from the 1980s, the image above being a good example. I hope to attain a very comfortable amount as I have with Egoiste.

    I definitely get the GIT vibe. It’s not a duplicate. GIT has a sharp freshness. Stardust more rounded and sweet. If you go crazy with how much Stardust you spray it can become sickly sweet. Last night’s sprays on opposite arms showed me how very different GIT and Stardust are but also clear similarities in the style of top notes. I enjoyed the overall wearing of GIT more.

    If one were interested in GIT but didn’t want to shell out the bucks, I think vintage Cool Water is an excellent option. Clearly styled like GIT, and more smooth out of the gate. And for something modern, I enjoy Rasasi’s take with Egra. I have Tres Nuit as well. Having all the other scents, it’s rare that I daydream about vintage GIT.

    My SOTD is GIT.
