    Default Need reccomendations for lighter scent

    based on my wardrobe... http://www.basenotes.net/cgi-bin/vie...gi?drobe=RTbar ... what would you reccomend as a lighter, yet still full bodied scent to make my spring purchase... I feel like I have a lot of heavy scents and need something a bit different... I'm looking primarily at niche but if there is an outstanding designer reccomendation than include that one too

    Hmmm.

    Lauder's Pleasures, L'Instant PH, Burberry Touch

    How about the stuff from CdG's Incense series? Strong, but airy and not overpowering.

    What about Philosykos?

    I think both Touch and Philosykos that were mentioned above are excellent choices, but the first one that came to my mind was Passage d'Enfer. Another one that I thought about is CSP L'eau du Gouverneur.

    Noone should be without Eau Sauvage

    "lighter, yet still full bodied"... first thing that comes to mind is Habit Rouge Eau Légère. I think I'll get this one myself.

    Boss #6?

    Doesn't seem like you have any vanila frags.
    (might not have looked hard enough though)

    What about L'Eau de L'Artisan? Very light, clean and springtimeish.

    Passage d'Enfer is also a nice pick!
    Arte et labore

    You already own my favorite spring time scent... Voleur de Roses.

    I would also second Eau Sauvage and L'eau de L'Artisan. I would suggest Neroli Sauvage from Creed.

    Lanvin L'Homme. This is the *perfect* daytime office fragrance, IMHO.

    I just tried a bunch from the L'Artisan house at Barney's. Many of these fit the description you desire like Primier Figuer, Mure et Musc and so forth (I know I butchered the spelling).

    L'Eau par Kenzo
    Dior Higher
    Live Jazz

    Consider the king of Chypres: Chanel Pour Monsieur
    (the original, not the concentree version).

    Also, consider a great, light citrus floral: Annick Goutal Eau d'Hadrien.

    For something niche, try Parfums de Nicolai's Baladin for a light leather
    or Nicolai's Balle de Match for a good, modern summer scent.

    Just wanted to add 2:

    Rochas - Eau de Rochas (the original, now tends to be marketed at women - but it was originally created to be uni-sex)
    it's absolutely ravishingly refreshing.. and uplifting...

    Kenzo - Eau par Kenzo (again, the original marketed now at women) ... it's fresh, delicate and yet, distinctive

    YSL M7 Fresh and Kouros Cologne sport - I love both, they're gorgeous!

    Wanted to also recommend Creed GIT and MI, but I see you have them... :
