    I like citrusy "Old Man" fragrances like Guerlain Eau Imperiale, Hermes Eau d'Orange Vert and Dior Eau Sauvage.

    Re: Suggestion for Clean,Fresh fragrance?

    I like Eau d'Orange Vert by Hermes.

    Although quite citrusy, it has a hint of mint which makes it smells bright and refreshing.

  8. Re: A*men Vs Cuba Prestige : Alternative to higher price fragrance

    I own this and I think it is pretty good ... especially since it is rock bottom cheap.
