    Oh, I agree! I love the mango/vetiver-fusion in Timbuktu!

    I rather like Eau de Cartier for summer evenings: yuzu top notes with amber basenotes. It's lovely.

    I haven't tried it for a summer evening yet, but I think Pomegranate Noir might be suitable as long as the humidity is low enough: raspberry, plum, and of course, pomegranate combined with patchouli.

    My votes would be for Reaction and Live Jazz. If by 'fruity' you include citrus, then you have many, many more choices.

    XS Black Paco Rabanne

    Exactly. *To me, there are many Summertime scents out there... but there are few that are perfect for Summer Nights. *XS Black is one of them. *Strawberries, all the way through. * 8-)

    I gotta say Rykiel Homme is a great summer fragrance. It has a nice fruity woody combo that is perfect for a summer night.

    There was Villoresi scent called Tropicali or Tropicana that was pretty fruity. But that's out of production.

    While Black XS is a pretty safe bet, it seems a bit heavy and powdery for high temperatures.

    I say go with that or KC Reaction. They're both pretty cheap, unlike a lot of the high-end frags suggested. And younger girls like the Reaction. Fruity and light.

    A few recommendations:

    Millésime Impérial by Creed
    l'Eau de l'Artisan by l'Artisan Parfumeur
    Vettiveru by Comme des Garçons
    Premier Figueur by l'Artisan Parfumeur


    but the best of the best remains Philosykos by Diptyque, it doesn't just smell like sitting under a fig tree somewhere in South Italy, it really takes you there!

    Is it too late for me to add Live Jazz?

    I just received this yesterday - actually as the result of a mix-up - I ordered Jazz and they sent me the 'Live' version by mistake. I'd tried it on my hand before and not really liked it. I tried it again yesterday on the neck and loved it!

    The combination of mint (not a fruit I know!), lemon and rhubarb works really well in warmer weather (I was out in the evening mowing the lawn in the sunshine and it worked so well in that context). It also smells 'Creed-like' in some way, whether that's the ambergris, the general sourness I associate with a lot of their fragrances or something else I don't know.
