    Default Your Top 5 niche summer frags ?!?

    Looking to find some good high quality long lasting well projecting summer niche frags.
    Bond No. 9 and Creed are NOT available in this Top 5 as options because I know they would dominate the list and I already know my fav Bond and Creed

    By 'summer frag' I mean a frag without tobacco, leather, oud, patchouli and heavy vanilla/coffe/coconut/cacao gourmand ingredients.

    Looking to get inspired !

    I will look into getting some Malle and Le Labo frags.
    Is Geranium Pour Monsieur the best Malle summer frags and what abour Rose 31 from Le Labo, is there lighter and better summer frags from Le Labo, I ought to also consider ?

    What about Frapin - do they make some fine lighter frags with decent longevity and projection ?

    Thanks

    Is

    - Although I have not suggested this gem, I agreed that this one is really a fantastic scent, very masculine, mysterious and interesting, I have never came across anything better or alike, definitely a winner on its genre.

    I would say L`Humaniste - A very descent priced fragrance longevity on me about 7 hours, thus fairly ok, however Rose 31 is THE fragrance compare to L`Humaniste

    Geranium Pour Monsieur and Vetiver Extraordinaire are both oustastind for summer assuming your fine with mint and geranium (the former) and edgy grassy vetiver...

    and what abour Rose 31 from Le Labo, is there lighter and better summer frags from Le Labo, I ought to also consider ?
    Rose 31 is an all rounder IMO. Try also their Iris which is a very green take on the main theme...

    What about Frapin - do they make some fine lighter frags with decent longevity and projection ?
    L'Humaniste is pretty nice indeed if you like citrus-juniper concotions...One of the best in this genre.

    That's it for me at the moment. I prefer designers when it comes to the summer.
