    Arrow Recommendations for a clean masculine scent?

    I now wear Polo Blue and would like to add another fresh, clean scent to my collection. I'm looking for something that can be described as:

    fresh
    musky
    masculine, and clean

    I used to own M7 but had to toss it out because I thought the scent was just too bold for my personality. So anything moving in a M7-direction would nice.

    Any help is appreciated.


    As a side note: This ( http://a1468.g.akamai.net/f/1468/580.../26289/300.jpg ) inspired me to ditch the aquatic/sweeter scents and go for something more masculine. I think I've grown into it. I receive so many compliments with this stuff. Ha! Now if I can only find something a bit more refined and lasting.

    The following from Lancome are clean and masculine. Not favored by many which I consider a big plus:
    Miracle
    hypnose

    For the price of both you almost get the French Lover or Vetiver Extraordinaire from Editions Malle. Both are deliciously clean and straight forward (but with finesse) ! More expensive but romantic ? Bois du Portugal!

    Try Ferragamo's Subtil--it might fit the bill!

    Etro Vetiver. Clean, masculine and slightly musky.

    Heartily second this one, I think this is exactly what you're looking for.

    I also second (or third) Terre d'Hermes and L'eau D'Issey. I'll also suggest Clinique Happy.

    If M7 was good but too much, have you had an opportunity to try M7 Fresh?

    On the designer side, there's always Geir by Geir Ness. It's very wearble, widely liked, but not overused.

    On the niche side, there's Creed's Silver Mountain Water, but some people have longevity issues with this one. Parfums d'Empire's Iskander may have everything you're looking for, and you might enjoy Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier's Garrigue and Sanguine Muskissime as well. Finally, there's L'Artisan Parfumeur's classic Mure et Musc - light, clean, easy wearing and with a very nice musk note.

    Enjoy your search!

    Another vote for Allure Sport (silver bottle) for Men

    second...Bvlgari Extreme

    You might want to try out Lanvin's Vetyver (2003) and/or Emporio Armani White He.

    I will second Live Jazz for the summer especially. An amazing understated designer fragrance. It's inexpensive too - give it a try.

    I am wearing M7 Fresh today. If you are in a humid hot climate I would not suggest it - but dry and hot and it can work very nicely. M7 is great as well, but of course it's better suited for nighttime and cooler weather.

    Nautica Voyage is a nice clean, fresh, and masculine scent.

    Some say it is not unique. . .but I have not smelled anything quite like it.

    When it is hot I like something that smells icy cool. . .Nautica Voyage is good for this.

    I have tried and owned many fresh and aquatic scents but have not found much that I like

    better.

    Owned or tried these in the same vein:
    Azzaro Chrome (a bit flowery), Bvlgari Aqua, Davidoff Cool water, Acqua di Giň, Guess, Lacoste, Polo Blue, Blue Jeans, Versace Man Eau Fraîche, Zirh Corduroy

    prefer the Voyage by Nautica . . .I mostly wear Dolce & Gabbana Pour Homme. . .I also like Burberry Touch and Burberry London. . .I just dont wear those three when its hot.

    Guerlain Vetiver has gotten a lot of votes, and it gets mine too.
    Another clean scent, but not typically masculine is Soda from Comme des Garcons Synthetic serie. It doesn't get much cleaner than this...

    Terre d'Hermes and Bois Classic 1920 which is expensive, but IMHO a wonderfully fresh and elegant cologne.

    I guess you might like YSL Jazz (the original one).
    I'm actually planning to buy it myself.
