    Isn't this a bit early? haha

    I haven't even thought of spring yet



    but.. definitely Guerlain Vetiver. I bought it this winter and can't wait until it gets really hot

    I'll be sporting the Tabarome Millesome by Creed, Green Irish Tweed by Creed, and there will be some Voleur de Roses by L'Artisan (more for springtime but who cares). I have some more designers to use for some diversity but who wants to hear about those anyway ;D. I can't wait for some warmer weather and the "fresh" styles of people to emerge....

    Pretty early, but why not! From what I have, I'll probably wear in the dog-days of summer:

    Caswell Massey #6
    Guerlain Vetiver
    YSL PH
    Thierry Mugler Cologne
    Acqua di Parma - Colonia
    Eau Sauvage

    Though I rarely wear it, I tend to wear Issey when the weather is especially brutal. It is icy to me for some reason.

    I thought the original brief sort of specified niche/artisanal scents. At least, "(niche)" is sticking out at the side. The only artisanal scent I'll be wearing is Annick Goutal's Vétiver, the one vetiver scent that won the vetiver wars between Malle, Goutal, Carven, and Guerlain. I also look forward to more use of Kenzo pour Homme (the ol' seaweed-and-beer!) and Eau des Merveilles, both of which are gathering a little dust right now. I occasionally wear them even now - this is L.A., after all, and we've been in the upper 80s lately - but I don't wear them with the regularity I do in the summer months. Eau d'Hermès also tends to be a summer staple, a spicy vanilla scent I can wear with ease in summer heart.

    Hey Serp, have you tried Comme des Garçons Series 4: Cologne Vettiveru? If you like Goutal's Vetiver, then you should give Vettiveru a real shake. Its an EDC so its kind of light in terms of sillage. It has a real salty, dirty kind of vetiver note like that of Goutal. To me, its a bit similar and I much prefer Vettiveru. I look at it as an "all-star" team of the vetiver notes of the great Vetivers.

    Millesime Imperial and Himalaya, I would use GIT but I think its more of a spring scent then summers hot day, it was kind of cloying when I wore it last summer during a VERY hot day.

    My top frags for this Summer will be:

    Aramis Surface Skin Tonic (Got a little bit left!!)
    L' Eau de L' Artisan
    Geir EDP
    Mugler Cologne
    Gendarme
    Lanvin L' Homme
    Guerlain Vetiver (Still trying to like this one and maybe the heat will help!)
    Laguna
    TOVA Handsome
    TOVA for Men

    That should be enough to get me through the Summer with ease!! I love the lighter, non-cloying scents for hot weather.

    Vettiveru smells great, but come the ___ on! *I ain't paying that kind of money for that kind of crappy non-longevity! *What kind of nimrod (no offense) is going to lug around a jug o' vetiver to refresh himself every ten minutes to keep staying scented, which is what you have to do with those damn Series 4 Colognes? *Hell, it's what you have to do with practically any Comme des Garçons scent; *I couldn't get even the original eau de parfum or 2 Man to stick to me for love or money. *I love all three scents in that series, but they're strictly for smelling from the bottle in the store, because they're gone as soon as they hit the skin. *As far as I was concerned, Vettiveru wasn't even in the running.

    ETA: It's a warm day! I'm puttin' on the ol' seaweed and beer!

    It's not too early for me!

    It's been 80 degrees + (27 celsius) for the last week in LA. ;D

    I wore MI yesterday, Muglar Cologne the day before and SMW today. And loving every bit of it!

    I still haven't gone as fare as breaking out Hermes Orange Verte yet, but Sunday it's going to be over 80 again, so you never know.

    My summer wardrobe is shaping up like this:

    M7 Fresh ( a staple )

    Hermes D'Orange Verte Concentree ( another staple. The best "orange" frag to me. )

    Soprani Uomo ( If you were/are a fan of ADG ... this is a "grown up" version of the frag, IMO )

    Gendarme Green EdP ( I've been using Gendarme since it first came out in the 90's. To me, they finally perfected it. This is the least "soapy" version. Very green, very fresh )

    Bond No. 9 Eau de New York ( as much as I don't like the entire Bond No. 9 line, this is the best "lemony" frag ... to my taste. )

    Versace Black Jeans ( a very underrated lemony/herbal frag ... nice )

    1. Havana *(I have a source) *;D

    2. Creed Himalaya

    3. Creed Millesime-- give me more ginger with my sushi---Tabarome, as opposed to my beloved Vintage.

    Only niche, *huh?

    There must be a Bay Rum out there, *probably made in England's green and pleasant land, * that I haven't sampled yet. *Also love the smell of oranges, *but haven't found the one yet. *For that matter, I *haven't found any above average. And I can't think of a niche vetiver that I like better than Guerlian's.

    Cheers,
