This is a beautiful fragrance. I think the comparisons to Cool Water are somewhat justified but this is clearly a much higher quality fragrance. To me GIT, as the name implies, has a greener scent while CW holds true to its name as well and seems more aquatic to me. I probably wouldn't pay full retail for this but I think it is well worth the price you can get it here. It is a quite versatile scent that works in almost any situation and is good year around. Obviously it will project better in warmer weather but it still works well in the colder months too. It performs great on my skin and will give me a solid 8 to 10 hours, sometimes more, and project well for several hours before getting closer to the skin. This is my favorite Creed fragrance and I even prefer this to the wildly popular Aventus. It is fresh, grassy, a bit woody and just about a perfect scent for any man. I don't think anything at this price is worthy of a blind purchase because you never know what might not agree with your nose and skin but this is a very difficult fragrance to dislike. I highly recommend it.
