    Default Fresh fragrance for work?

    I know this question has probably been played out before, but I'm in the market for a good fresh/aquatic scent for work. I think I'm going through an olfactory burnout period right now, I have dozens of 'heavy' fragrances that I'm just not in the mood for right now, I need something of a pallette cleanser. Something bright, light, sharp, marine, maybe a little fruity, etc. Any recomendations? I've had Kenzo pour Homme and L'eau De Issey in the past, liked the later more than the former.

    I have Bvlagair Pour Homme Extreme and Lanvin, I like them both but Lanvin lasts about 10 minutes on me.

    Ditto. Both great for what you want. Maybe give L'Eau Par Kenzo a try, too.

    I think you might like Hamptons by Bond No. 9. It's got that bright, light, marine, slightly sharp thing you seem to be looking for. It's a very well made fragrance, to boot.

    Cheers.

    Lanvin L'Homme lasting 10 minutes seems an impossibility to me. It's one of the few scents I actually go easy on to avoid reeking of it, because it is just so potent and long lasting.

    If you don't mind a bit of adventure, L'Eau de l'Artisan or Cologne Mure et Musc. you can't beat Eau de Guerlain for freshness (though lasting power is feeble).

    Most people here seem to hate it, but if its not popular in your area, I also suggest Drakkar Noir

    Hamptons is at the top of my list for any occasion. It's definitely light, sharp, and marine with great sillage and good lonevity. (To me, it's the perfected version of Silver Mountain Water). Just be prepared to pay top $$$ as I've never seen this one (or any Bond No. 9 scent) discounted.

    If you are looking for a citrus type clean:

    GIT by Creed
    Chez Bond by Bond No 9

    If you are looking for a floral/herbal type clean:

    SMW by Creed

    If you are looking for fresh type clean:

    I think Himalaya works well in this situation. Again by Creed.

    I'm not knowledegable on many aquatic senses. I've used Hamptons but wasn't thrilled by it (It was OK).

    I know it may sound like I'm obsessed with Creed, but of all the fragrance houses them and Bond both understand clean fragrances. If you want Night fragrances then I'd move to some of the other houses.

    Polo Blue is a good aquatic scent but it dosent really last long so well it might not last you the whole day at work...
