    At first I didn't like citrus, but I've come around to it so suggesting citrus fragrances is ok.

     

    Here is what I've tried.

     

    Creed Virgin Island Water - I'm ok with coconut at first, but prolonged exposure to it makes me nauseous because one time I ate too many coconut cookies and threw up.

    Comptoir Sud Pacifique Coco Figue - Coconut, don't want it.

    Creed Aventus - Don't like it, smells like fir/pine resin and no pineapple. Unless by pineapple they mean the green skin, then maybe.

     

    Creed Original Vetiver - Don't like it, too strong, too green, too mediciney. 

     

    Heeley Oranges and Lemons etc. - Besides the oranges and lemons it has the same smell as OV only weaker. I guess it is the vetiver I'm disliking? And OV is supposed to barely smell like vetiver!?!?! I'd hate to smell strong vetiver in that case.

     

    Byredo Pulp - At first I loved it and I still love the opening. It quickly turns into rotting fruit, very sweet rotting fruit. A sort of clean rot, without the bacteria poop. Way too sweet for me, once the citrus disappears it is plain bad.

     

    Creed Silver Mountain Water - How is this unisex? This is feminine, an old ladyish smell at that.

    Parfumerie Generale Cologne Grand Siecle No.7 - Smells like a toilet air freshener, only slightly higher quality.

    Editions de Parfums Frederic Malle - J.C. Ellena - Bigarade Concentrée - At first I was indifferent but then all of a sudden I started smelling armpits. Its the certain kind of armpit smell that some people get. Don't know if its from genes, hormones, diet, skin bacteria or what. It is cleaner than the authentic pit smell, might be the lemons though. Further research indicates the BO note is cumin?

     

    Heeley Menth Fraiche - A sweet peppermin/spear mint combo. Smells like toothpaste, a toothpaste I wouldn't use. Don't like it.

     

    Heeley Sel Marin - I quite like it, except that I'm not too keen on ginger. If there is anything like this sans the ginger, I'd love to try it out. Erolfa?

     

    Frapin L'Humaniste smiley.gif- Love it, going to buy a bottle.

     

    Creed Millesime Imperial smiley.gif- Love this, bought a bottle.

     

    Gucci Pour Homme II thumbup.gif- Blind bought this since it is discontinued, haven't received it yet, fingers crossed.

     

    So no vetiver, cumin or ginger.

    Looks like you've tried some really great summer scents already, if you want a nice citrus don't overlook clinique happy, its pretty nice and really does make you happy. Doesn't last though unfortunately

    Check out Bergamatto Marino. Great summer scent. The price won't kill your wallet either.

    I don't find Erolfa to be similar to Sel Marin, but definitely try it anyways. These are also great for summer...

    APOM pour Homme, is my favourite summer scent. Orange flower, light amber and cedar. Well worth sampling...

    Orange Sanguine & Grand Neroli - Atelier

    Bergamote 22 - Le Labo

    Coney Island - Bond No 9.

    One citrus fragrance that I've found that really suits me well is Lacoste Pure (white bottle). Smells really clean and won't hurt your wallet.
