    (Aqua di Parma / Blu Mediterraneo - Fico Di Amalfi)
    The Amalfi Coast with its lush landscape and breathtaking natural beauty, studded with tiny villages perched on top of rocky cliffs that plunge into the Mediterranean Sea, reflects the ultimate in vitality. Fico di Amalfi captures this sensation with a mingling of sparkling notes of tangerine, lemon, orange, and grapefruit, along with the intensity of fig nectar accord.
    Notes:
    Bergamot, Grapefruit, Lemon, Orange, Tangerine, Cedar Leaves, Jasmine, Rose/Pink Pepper, Fig Nectar, Cedarwood, Fig Wood, Guaiac Wood.
    Style:
    Sparkling. Vibrant. Joyful.

    ICE MEN, Mugler's newest fragrance, might be the thing for you
    It really feels a bit icy, and I think it can be a wonderful summer scent.

    Sugar Lychee by Fresh - Chandler Burr described it in Oprah magazine as "the astringent neon fruitiness of lychee gives the scent a delicious kind of strangeness".

    Another - L'eau de L'Artisan by L'Artisan Parfumeur - grass, cut branches and really the perfect scent that blossoms in the sun/heat.

    You might want to give minty frags a try. Creed's Selection Verte is incredibly refreshing - citrus, mint and pepper. Mentafollia from Guerlain's Allegoria series is a cheaper alternative.

    I'm going to be working the sales booth at a perfume "festival" this weekend and I hope to get a bottle of ICE Men for evaluation. For me, the great old Cool Water is excellent.

    When I think fresh/icy, the only thing that comes to mind is mint ... as ice has no smell. So some of the suggestions have be very good so far, like Aramis Surface and Creed Selection Verte.

    I would also add Lacoste Booster and Live Jazz ... though I like neither.

    Mint, awright!

    Concur with Slection Verte 100% but where would one score a bottle of Surface at a reasonable price?

    Cheers,

    Mario.

    Oh yes, non-mint alternatives would be Lowe para Hombre and the original (1989) Montana Parfum d' Homme

    Don't know about "icy" but I just recently discovered Giorgio Armani Eau Jade from the Prive collection. For the first time in 6 months, I was thinking of sitting on my guy friend's lap when he wore this stuff.
