    Default Which two should I get

    So the weather is warming up around here and I'm looking to buy some summer/spring scents.

    This is my list and I'm narrowing it down to 2... Might do 3.

    L'eau D'issey - It is actually not common around here
    XS pour Homme
    Guerlain Vetiver
    Live Jazz
    Herrera for Men
    SMW
    Kenzo pour Homme

    Trying to:

    a. Summer work scents
    b. Summer night scents
    c. Fill voids in my wardrobe

    Thanks

    Don't know the Herrera, but d'Issey and Kenzo ph both have something very offputting in them, and Live Jazz is not too exciting imho. I'd make it XS and Vetiver, or XS and SMW, although SMW is said to resemble one of the CK unisex scents..

    Id go for GUERLAIN VETIVER and LIVE JAZZ..

    LIVE JAZZ gained me plenty of compliments when i wore it last summers nights..

    GUERLAIN VETIVER i do like but i consider it a required taste.. I asked two of my female friends who are both 23 what they thought.. they hated this stuff!!!

    Just my opinion

    Get L'eau D'issey and Silver Moutain Water.

    Also, look into Terre D'Hermes for a spring summer scent. I just picked up a 3.4 oz bottle for $55 (reg. $90) from one of those mall fragrance stands. You should have seen my eye's light up when she said "ok, that'll be $55 please" lol.

    My two picks, too. Both are superb summer scents.

    I love Live Jazz so that would be my choice if I were you but I'm not so I guess that didn't help at all...

    If you've tested GV already, and like it, then get it.
    SMW is my other pick. Soooooooooo good!

    As always, disregard most of what I say. It's not worth your heart health to actually worry about what a 23 year old guy from Kansas thinks. Even if he is really ridiculously good looking.

    kenzo and Live Jazz;be carefull with issey and much more carefull with vetiver
    My reason is negative reactions on vetiver and issey is really the only scent which made my stomic turning around.

    Issey and SMW sounds good. However, I have a feeling XS would be great for summer nights, which lead to summer dreams..

    Do NOT get Silver Mountain Water. Just a waste of money. I made a similar thread and what was recommended to me were:

    Azzaro "Chrome"
    Bvlgari "Aqva PH"
    Yves Saint Laurent "Live Jazz"

    From your list, select Live Jazz and Kenzo PH. If you don't have a problem selecting three, XS is also a great choice.

    I would use Kenzo PH, but it's not a common scent so you might want to try it first.

    Otherwise my other three are:
    Live Jazz
    Vetiver
    Herrera for men

    I'm getting Live Jazz from a BNr for a darn good price. So good, I can still pick two.

    I don't have a marine scent, that's why I'm looking at Issey and Kenzo.

    XS smelled nice and thought it would be nice at night.

    Herrera I owned when I was younger but my dad always ended up using it more then me. Like the scent but wonder how it works in a hot and humid Alabama summer.

    SMW... I think I'll get a decant.

    Vetiver... Use it as a day/work scent.

    Trying to fill in the wardrobe with different scents that are not the norm for this area.
