    Default Fresh, sensual frag for summer evenings

    Hi guys,

    yes I know, not many people Basenoters like fresh fragrances...

    IMO a lot of guarmands are too strong and too cloying in summer. It is also nice if a frag has some kind of a "refreshing effect".
    Im looking for a fresh frag which has a good staying power, which has a good sillage. I dont like frags which are "just" fresh.

    Ive already tested these ones...

    D&G pour homme: quite nice which nice citrus
    Givenchy very irresistable for men: it has nothing special....
    Issey Miyake: very refreshing....but not my cup of tea...

    Which are your little secrets for summer nights??

    Which have given you most compliments, especially by girls?

    Yes...I am 23 years old....

    Hi,

    My favorite fresh scent is Platinum Egoiste.
    I also like very much KenzoAir, Baldessarini Concentree, Boucheron PH, Good Life, Eau Sauvage, Eau de Rochas. You could also try the new Kouros Eau d'Ete (2006 version), Opium Eau d'Orient, Lanvin L'Homme, the two Jardins from Hermes, Terre d'Hermes etc

    Most loved by girls would be Aqua Di Gio or so I heard. I gave away my bottle long ago because I didn't like it much. On the other hand some fresh scents I like are:
    - Cool water
    - Creed *silver mountain water/Erolfa/ GIT/ Himalaya/ Original Vetiver/ MI
    - Mugler Cologne
    - Kouros Sport
    - Herrera Chic
    Take note that Cool water and GIT smell almost identical. So do Original Vetiver and Mugler Cologne, in case you don't want two bottles of a similar scent, especially considering the price of the Creeds.
    Polo Blue is also very popular and rumoured to be loved by the ladies, and it is a truly remarkable scent, way better than Aqua Di Gio.

    I second Terre d'Hermès, M7 fresh, Opium Eau d'Orient and Boucheron PH.
    You may try Allure Sport, it might work for you.
    Other ideas: Emporio Armani He, Miracle, Van Cleef & Arpels or Eau sauvage extrême.
    Top 5: Obsession | Eau sauvage | Antaeus | Bel Ami | Platinum Égoïste

    Definitely try Concentree d'Orange Verte by Hermes. If applied generously you're in for some serious orange, which in my opinion surpasses many other Citrus-only scents in that it doesn't just smell like orange (or lemon) candy. The other recommendations also look good, esp. Terre and M7 Fresh.

    The D&G is a good pick. For a summer evening I'd also pick:

    M7 Fresh (this will be my next purchase)
    Lanvin L'Homme
    GIT
    Ungaro III (maybe not on a really warm night)

    I also have found that Tam Dao's simplicity allows it to layer very well with many scents. I use one spray of Tam Dao along with a normal application (3-5 sprays) of a light/fresh scent to make a classier/warmer/sexier version of my more casual scents.

    P.S. I'm 23 as well.

    Lots of great suggestions in there...

    Mine would be Dunhill Fresh from Summer 2005. I dunno if it was a limited edition or if it's still around in the stores. It gives a very fersh overall impression, but it has just a hint of leather in the base, which makes it especially good for evening wear. It's not impossible for daytime either.

    BTW, I was 23... once... a while back... Don't remember it much though.

    Yr good bud,

    when you say sensual it has to stay close to the body, possibly oriental, to have either vanilla or sandalwood notes yet to be fresh

    armani code

    dior homme

    tam dao diptyque

    (I see you have RG already)

    Aramis Life? Not! I found this to be too conflicted of a scent. Not very smooth.

    How about Dunhill Edition which is very long lasting and Summery. Or, what about Joop! Nightflight which is affordable and very different. Nightflight is a breath of fresh air. I think it works well in the heat. It also is long lasting.
