    Default Fresh summer scents? Which one do you choose?

    The summer's already there, it's hot....and I like the summer.

    But I am looking for a daytime frag, which is refreshing, not too strong but it should defineatly be recognized. Which one has given you the most compliments??

    And which one lasts more than an hour? Imagine summer, sun, beach ... which fresh(!) frag comes to your mind? Yes, there are a lot of fresh scents, but what are YOUR summer scents?

    I also like Joop Jump it's nice but sometimes too sweet when it's hot!!

    And which fresh summer scents has given you the most compliments, esp. from young girls??

    None of the above. But if i had to pick one, it would be Chrome. Five or six years ago, when my collection was much smaller, i wore it quite often.

    I say Chrome, given the field of contenders.

    If I was forced to choose one of those three scents, it would be Chrome.

    I suggest that you might be happier with one of these for a fresh summer scent:

    - Gendarme
    - Geir
    - Thierry Mugler Cologne
    - Creed Original Vetiver
    - Lanvin L'Homme

    Andy Tauer is about to launch Lonestar Memories.

    A rewiew of it from Marlon http://scenteur7.blogspot.com/2006/0...-lonestar.html

    His L'air du desert marocain is also a fabulous scent on a man.

    Out of the ones your picked, definately Chrome. It has surprisingly good sillage and longevity. I like Rockford's alternative suggestions more though

    Default Re: Fresh summer scents? Which one do you choose?

    I get alot of compliments when I wear Reaction. It really dosn't last longer than 15 minutes though. My current summertime faves (at the moment) are Mugler Cologne and Kouros Fraicheur.

    Chrome alwas receives compliments. *I love Polo Blue but it fades much too quickly -- like an hour on my skin. *Chrome does better for longevity. *I spray 5-6 times w/Chrome.

    I love the fact that most had to preface their vote by saying, "Not that I would wear any of these but if you put a gun to my head..."

    Oh, the embarrassment of having to wear a fresh Summer scent that isnt constantly being hyped-up around here! *Excuse me while I put the bag over my head and reach for the Chrome or Reaction this Summer... instead of some other "box-office bust" type scent that rarely lives up to it's reputation. *
    I'm a fresh scent junkie and proud of it!

    Default Re: Fresh summer scents? Which one do you choose?

    I picked KC Reaction out of that group ... but I think L'eau Par Kenzo is a far better "summer" scent than any of those.

    Default Re: Fresh summer scents? Which one do you choose?

    L'Eau D'issey pour Homme by Issey Miyake might be the kind of frag you're looking for. Do give it a try.
    Oh, and Mugler Cologne is a MUST-try.
    Also look out for Eau Parfumee Au the Vert(Bvlgari).

  12. #12

    Default Re: Fresh summer scents? Which one do you choose?

    Ok, then I will decide between these two

    Azzaro Chrome
    Issey Miyake L'eau d Issey

    Which do you prefer, both seems to have good sillage and are liked by girls.

    Azzaro is a bit lighter than Issey Miyake, do you agree??

    Would you also say:

    Daywear >> Chrome
    Evening, Nightwear Issey Miyake

    I have heard that some use Issey Miyake as a club frag, because it has a good sillage and staying power...

    There is a synthetic sharpness about Chrome that might get on your nerves after a while. If you're looking for one that's good for regular use, I would say L'eau D'issey is your best bet. Chrome is definitely for daywear while L'eau D'issey is more versatile IMO.

    Chrome is making a comeback for me. I love it on the really hot, humid days that you just can't stand to be outside in the heat.

    Issey Miyake PH
    the sillage is awesome and the frag remains fresh all the way through, I suggest you try wearing it yourself on a hot summer day

    another summer classic is XS PH paco rabanne

    Hey hi! I've just get Joop! Jump as a birthday gift. First time I took this scent, I found it nothing but similar, like so many floral scent out there. After about 1hour, Jump made me surprise. Somewhat like Chanel's Allure but softer. A scent of simple and modern, enough to make you feel cool in the summer day and hot in the summer night.

    Creed Neroli Sauvage is a good summer choice.

    Try out Pacific Paradise by Escada. Yes, I know... Pink box, bikini girl, pink elongated heart shaped bottle.... The packaging is uber feminine but the scent is beautiful! Get it if you don't mind using a woman's scent. Personally, I think this should be marketed as unisex... I mean... will spilling fruit punch on yourself make you smell like a girl?

    Ajaccio Violet by Geo F. Trumper

    Eau de Rochas men or women's
    Jean Marie Farina

    I would recommend Aramis Bermuda Tonic, this scent is one of the nicest freshest in the Aramis line, and i wear it often in hot weather.

    I would also have to mention Adolfo Dominguez's Agua Fresca, hot summer days never smelled better.
