    Default 2006 summer scent

    What's the summer scent of 2006? I tried a couple of new releases or summer versions of older fragrances in search for my perfume for this summer.
    I liked Givenchy VI summer edition very much at first, but after an hour or so the drydown is too sweet. I tried Versace Eau Fraiche that smells very clean and herbal, quite nice, but does not seem to last very much, or at least I do not feel its silage.
    CK One summer is very citrus and nice, quite wearable and I think I'll give it a try.

    What do U think about these fragrances.. and what you'll wear this summer, either it's on the beach or during an evening walk in the town.

    I don't know anything about those ones but I know that my first thought when I hear beach is Marc Jacobs for men. It smells like coconut to me. That seems tropical.

    Someone just sent me a little decant of Royal Water. At first i loved it but later on, there is too much floral scent for me.

    Should i give it another try?

    Davidoff Game is not bad.

    Tommy Summer 2006 is also very fruity and fresh, but not sure about its lasting power.

    Either M7 Fresh or Aqua Motu for the daytime, and of course, some original Montana for those hot nights in the presence of a sexy ladeeeey...

    You could try L'Eau Bleue d'Issey Eau Fraîche. It's pretty nice and not too much like the original. I think it's a good pick for summer.

    Most summery, beach-y, tropical I've got: Vanille Pineapple by CSP, and I also love Philosykos this time of year (I like it a bit more than marc jacobs, but they are similar to me)

    I agree if you like CKone Summer, you REALLY need to try CK Eternity Summer. This is one of my staple scents this summer.

    My main scents this summer so far has been Kouros Fraicheur and Mugler Cologne with just a hint of M7 Fresh and Live Jazz. Its a shame that Eternity Summer doesn't seem to last past five minutes on my skin. I actually really like it.

    yeah,. totally agree with you, very nice green/floral smell with a serious problem of longevity... and thats the reason that i wont buy it.

    OK... this summer, I'm wearing:

    -Angel Men Summer Flash (a light, breezy scent with a touch of the darkness found in the original)
    -Bvlgari The Vert (a nice citrus/tea scent)
    -Terre d'Hermes (the great outdoors in a bottle)
    -M7 Fresh (a lighter take on M7)
    -Mugler Cologne (always refreshing in the summer)
    Top 5 for Late Summer:
    1) Straight to Heaven - By Kilian
    2) Aventus - Creed
    3) Flower of Immortality - By Kilian
    4) L'Humaniste - Frapin
    5) Millesime Imperial - Creed

    For me, the discovery was Guerlain Vetiver Sport. I'm a big fan of the original but this is different enough to own and smells wonderful. I think I'm going to have to stock up on it since it's available only at Sephora and it's a limited release.
    My other standards for the summer are:
    GV
    Eau Sauvage CD
    YSL PH
    Armani Eau PH
    Pour Un Home de Caron
