I would like to welcome you to basenotes as I see that it is your first post. I hope you find this site informative and friendly as I have over the year.
I would say that Cool Water is a great one for me. It lasts forever on my skin and it is so pleasing to the nose that I don't mind at all. Others include Chrome and Live Jazz. I hope yyou find something you like.
Everyone has different skin chemistry so trying them out on your own skin would be ideal. That way you could find something you like and make sure it lasts for you own skin type.
I live in a warm Asian climate and I would definitely second Lanvin L'Homme. It doesn't get cloying in the heat and it lasts beautifully. Another good one would be Chromeby Azzaro--light and lasts well. If you want something with more power, Le Dandy by D'Orsay works great, too, but you have to go light in application.
Swiss Army, Paco Rabanne PH, Paco Rabanne XS, Gucci Envy (YES!, it does smell good even in the summer temperature, but try it out for yourself first) and Open (by roger and gallet) come to mind immediately. With some research, and looking at the basenoters previous posts, you'll get a lot more information. Welcome to Basenotes.
thanks IPCauser for your reply. the summer will be cruel in my part of the world with temp's reaching 110 - 120 F with lot of humidity and i just don't have an option to try various perfumes but want to buy one and then test it out and hope it will be one of my fav.
thanks pigeon murdered and rcavs. i guess i will give Chrome by Azzaro a try as its mentioned by lot of people. i just hope it will be one of my favourite too.
thanks again guys for your replies.
