    Nice, I just ordered a bottle of the original looking forward to wearing it after only vague memories a few years back when first getting into this hobby. A new Intense version sounds interesting I wonder how it alters the original, looking forward to smelling the Intense when it’s available.

    For me, vintage Cool Water is so intense that I'd fear an intense version would emit gamma rays! LOL.

    I have minimal expectations, but the perfumer is reported to be Annick Menardo which raises my hopes.

    Had I read these notes separately I would never ever think they were the notes for Cool Water Intense.

    Top Notes - Green mandarin
    Heart Notes - Coconut water
    Base Notes - Amber

    I was expecting a vain attempt at felling its niche brother GIT by brute force, this seems to be something else entirely.

    Color me interested. If they just made an edp of the original Id be happy.
    It’s tragic to think that heroic man’s great destiny is to become economic man, that men will be reduced to craven creatures who crawl across the globe competing for money, who spend their nights dreaming up new ways to swindle each other.

    Indeed...….it certainly will not smell like the original at all with coconut water added as a main note.

    Rather late to the party.... Perhaps they’ve finally run out of ideas for a flanker? It looks like a completely different fragrance though..

    Nice to see a new Annick Menardo creation coming out. And EDP concentration at that. Not sure what to think about that note breakdown though,

    Not yet on Fragrantica. Actually sounds interesting, and hopefully at discounters soon.

    I'm a sucker for coconut so I'll be tracking this down for a sniff for sure...!

    Thanks hednic.

    Interesting, I love Annick Menardo and find Roma Uomo to almost be an oriental take on Cool Water, so I'll definitely be sniffing this out.

    Have you tried Belcam Blue Depths? That stuff is even more ridiculous than vintage Cool Water. It's like an atom bomb lol

    The original would likely remain the better choice of the two especially when comparing it to the vintage formulation.

    Coincidentally, I just picked up a bottle of Cool Water last weekend. I have worn it a few times already, and I really enjoy the scent. I find the performance leaving quite a bit to be desired, but it was dirt cheap, so reapplying this one doesn't bother me too much.

    My cousins are kind of into fragrances, but certainly not deep in the hobby, nor do any of them collect. Two of them currently own CW, and another had it previously. I felt left out of the CW party, so I decided to finally jump in the water. Feels good.

    The coconut note is a bit worrying... that's a hard note to get right in cheap frags.

    I think it would be a nice departure.

    As long as it dosnt have an Invictus sweet base, and is green, fresh, coconut, like it sounds, with 6 hopefully 8 hours of staying power I'm I 100%. I love Cool Water, but long for the deep base of the vintage even though I like the reform.

    I must be in the minority, but I was disgusted when I first smelled CW. Not sure why. I'll try this new version if I ever run into it at the mall or something.

    Everyone can have an opinion but... Disgusted, a bit hyperbolic perhaps?

    It actually made me gag upon first spray. And I really enjoy Creed's GIT. I don't know what it is, but something about Cool Water is very off-putting to me.

    To this day Cool Water from 92-00 was the one that made women swoon and sniff my neck and I loved it. I don’t get same feel from current version but would love to try this

    I have a cousin that is kind of the same way. He has a bottle of Cool Water that he bought. He said he liked it initially, but after wearing it several times, it began to make him feel ill. I asked him where he had it stored, and sure enough, he keeps it in the bathroom.

    I told him that I thought his bottle could have gone off, so he went and grabbed it and it was absolutely fine to my nose. There may be a certain chemical in it that disagrees with some people. I can't imagine that it's the scent itself giving you grief (especially as you like GIT), but rather something in the ingredients...just a theory.

    This is probably the case.

    Cool Water sometimes gives me a headache. I like the scent, so yeah, I just figured it's something in the ingredients. But since I get the headache, I think in my head that I don't like the scent. GIT, I LOVE. I know they are similar.....but they are also so different.

    Why is it called Cool Water?

    AM did the same with Hypnotic Poison, i.e. a completely different fragrance than the original

    If she has done as good a job with this one, I'll be happy
