    Default Good choice for springtime?

    I apologize, as this is doubtless a well-traveled topic on here...but I didn't find too much in searches so I thought I'd give it a shot.

    What would be your best choice for spring wear? I would be obviously thinking something green...perhaps citrus. Of what I have, really only Envy has any green to it. Of course, something woody like Sequoia comes to mind as well. Suggestions?

    Lorenzo Villoresi Vetiver for that green fresh thing;

    Divine Homme d'coeur once it starts to get warm

    I think Silver Mountain Water and Vetiver Extraordinaire work best in spring.

    Creed's Selection Verte is pastoral spring for me. Diptyque's Olene and Offresia also are fantastic in that season. Oh and Givenchy's Insense too.

    All of these are great suggestions, guys! I will add two more, though:

    Frank by Frank Los Angeles, and
    Un Jardin sur le Nil by Hermès.

    These are neither light nor overpowering, but both have a delightful complexity that evokes for me new beginnings. Both are a delight to my nose.
