hello friend i am from delhi too.. its good to hear that you are into fragrances too...
Hey man! Long time! I have not tried Nickel Max, I was thinking of buying it a while ago, and I totally forgot about it. Let me know how it is!
Happy Easter Nishantdavid!!!
You are most welcome to visit India my country.
Are you a believer in Christ Jesus?
Hello friend!! I have always wanted to visit India.
Thanks for your encouragement. It's always nice to meet a new friend!
Never a bother men, no prob at all. As you know, I do recommend Polo Blue and L'Eau D'Issey is fantastic. It isn't very citrusy, but great for hot weather, lasts long. Solo Loewe Agua I do not know much about, so I can't give any recommendations concerning that...however, almost everyone who has reviewed it complares it to L'eau D'Issey and say it is better. Maybe you should buy one or the other but not both.
What I will recommend for huge sillage and staying power is Terre d'Hermes. If you already have this, try it in the heat. If you don't have it, buy the perfume for men version, it is waaaaay better, though more expensive.
I will also recommend One Man Show. It is cheap, a bit rough but it is stronger than strong. I don't think the Indian heat can match up to it!
Cheers my friend,
One more thought: I tend to like my citrus notes to be realistic and bright. Many modern citrus fragrances give more a citric impression (i.e., tartness) than a specific fruit and for me that isn't particularly satisfying.
I don't think Polo Blue will meet your desire for "zesty citrus". L'Eau D'Issey may work for you. I have not tried the Solo Lowe Agua, but I would be cautious based on what I have read.
If you can buy/test samples, that is the best thing before any purchase. Knowing how long a fragrance lasts on any individual is always a challenge and it is difficult for citruses. If you have opportunity to try Eau de Rochas Homme, that may meet your need for a zesty citrus. It does have a pine note as well, and is quite classy. Another possibility is C&S Citrus Paradisi, which on me is a long lasting grapefruit scent with some zestiness - but some dislike this (I think it is nice though). My favorite citrus of all is Acqua di Parma Colonia, but I am not sure it will do well in the heat. Creed's Erolfa wears well in the heat. It has has good tangerine note, but I consider it more aquatic than citrus.
I'm not familiar with Solo Loewe agua. Polo Blue is very weak and aquatic - I don't get much citrus out of it. L'Eau d'Issey is a strong citrus that should work for you. To my nose, what fits your description is Monsieur Balmain and possibly Loewe pour Homme (Loewe para Hombre).
