    Default Sensual/sexy scents in summer

    Basically I want to know if anyone knows of any sensual/sexy scents that work well in the summer heat. The only one I can think of is Dior Homme. Any suggestions? I haven't bought new fragrances in forever and want to get some new ones but I'm kind of stuck in deciding what I want. I know for a fact I want Dior Homme and Mugler Cologne. I'm thinking about getting CDG Vettiveru and Isfarkand...however the problem with those is Vettiveru is a huge bottle which I don't really need, and Isfarkand is a little pricey. So any suggestions for a great sensual/attractive/sexy summer scent that I could find on the cheaper side? Cause I'm going to CA this summer, and I'm probably gonna drop some cash in the airport on a bottle of something really worth it.

    I looked at some of your "favorites" in your collection...I think if you tested Creed Erolfa you'd like it a lot. Have a nice trip...

    Bvlgari Black is dead sexy & holds up well in the heat. I also suggest Chanel Allure Sport. I'm glad you're getting Mugler Cologne, it's one of my summer favorites!

    I could think of Opium pour Homme (Yves Saint-Laurent). However, I only know the EdP-version, which works well under warm circumstances. Another sexy scent suitable during heat might be Musc Ravageur (Editions de Parfums Frédéric Malle).

    The sexiest of them all !!!...........Eau Noire, Christian Dior. You will have to find a Dior boutique or a very exclusive perfumery. Go for the 500ml bottle. It costs approx $200, but it is excellent value for 500ml.

    I kind of think Ungaro II is better suited to cold weather. I guess I will have to give it another couple wearings to really decide. But that was my general impression.

    Maybe its just on my skin, but the combination of rose, jasmine, ylang ylang and spices in the middle with the amber and white musk in the base makes for a somewhat sensual dry down.

    Don't get me wrong, its no Musk Ravageur, but there is something sexy about it. JMO.

    I find that Opium de Orient works well in the summer. Light, crisp and still retaining that sensual Opium vibe.

    Am I the only one who loves Givenchy Pi in the summer? Love the vanilla and wood.

    I'm also a huge fan of Virgin Island Water and Silver Mountain Water but I don't know that either of those would necessarily be considered sensual...

    Isfarkand is a summer scent? I've been saving this thing till it gets cooler, not to mention that it is too expensive to use casually. Magnatism and Mugler Cologne are definitely good choices. Touch is decent also.

    I'm wearing Amouage Dia in humid 90 degree weather right now, and since the base is mostly vetiver based, it's not cloying or overly heavy. Holding up well too.

    Mat; Very Male is also good, the wooded notes with the spiciness of anise works great in the heat.

    Don't forget L'Instant de Guerlain EdT if you want a little more vanilla in the mix.

    Welcome to Planet California
    I live ( well, reside--don't know if I'd call it living) in L.A.
    Where summer means 90+ Fahrenheit, and humidity can be mean as hell.

    Roma? Havana? Bulgari Black?

    You're talking about some of my all time favorites, but---just how hot does it get where you gentlemen summer?

    I can tell when your posts list your hometowns, but as for the rest I wonder . . .
    Hell, I dunno. You may be right. Which means I'll have to abandon my escapist fantasies of evoking cool mountain springs with Creed's 1948 Vetiver during our desert-baking reality, IF using the aforementioned babemagnets--presumably in minute quantities-- yields appropiately sordid and depraved results during the heat wave Wish me luck.

    BTW, Holy Spirit, you really DO want CDG's Vettiveru in a huge bottle. It's light, sparkling and unique, but you have to bathe in the stuff. A rich scent with poor longevity.

    Revving up the air conditioner,

    Cheers,

    I'd make good money on a proposition bet that Taolady meant the original-- and sadly discontinued-- Montana Parfume d'Homme rather than the present Montana PH citrus rocket.

    But then, who'd be foolish enough to take that bet ?


    Perhaps the execs at Montana ?
