    Default Recommend me a good 'fresh' fragrance!

    I have minimal 'fresh' fragrances. What's a good, contemporary, fresh fragrance, but not ordinary like Issey or ADGio?

    I'm wearing Tommy Bahama Very Cool today. It's a good fresh scent.

    Chrome by Azzaro.

    Good longevity and sillage.
    It may be to popular, but i don't smell it on anyone.

    Lanvin L'Homme which I received this morning smells fresh on the lemony side and it bears a resemblance to that of Tiffany Sport. It lasts okay on me, about 5-6 hours.
    Current Top 5

    1. Creed Aventus
    2. A*Men Pure Malt
    3. L'instant Extreme
    4. Nasomatto Duro
    5. CDG - Kyoto

    Yes, I concur -- Lanvin L'Homme is excellent stuff.
    I got a bottle from Thrax earlier this month and have worn the hell out of it already.

    I'm surprised that no one has mentioned Thierry Mugler's Mugler Cologne.

    Great stuff... very fresh, but not in the aquatic vein like a ton of other scents, and it has quite good longevity. And it's priced right, too. Get a bottle... you won't regret it.
    Top 5 for Winter:
    1) Straight to Heaven - By Kilian
    2) Back to Black - By Kilian
    3) M7 (vintage or Oud Absolu) - YSL
    4) Aventus - Creed
    5) John Varvatos Vintage

    Blue Sugar by Aquolina is an excellent fresh scent to try. NO I'M JUST KIDDING, that stuff is sweet as anything i have ever smelled. But back to the question, the other day i smelled hugo boss xy. It was a wonderfully fresh clean scent. Now it was nothing groundbreaking but it was fresh and smelled really good.

    After giving it a good wear today, I think Aromatic Lime by Montale is one of the better fresh scents I've smelled.

    Loewe Pour Homme. A very bit old-fashioned, but a really nice citrus-vetiver-spice combination.

    Creed Original Vetiver is a great choice. Muglar Cologne is a nice cousin to OV but not as complex.

    Lancome Miracle Homme L'Aquatonic is another one worth checking out.

    The scent grows richer, he knows he must be near
    He finds a long passageway lit by chandelier
    Each step he takes, the perfumes change
    From familiar fragrance to flavours strange

    I'd recommend using the search function. Not to be mean, but there really is a plethora of threads on this very same subject.

    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.

    Prada Amber has a nice fresh/soapy/fresh out of the shower smell. Bulgari Aqua smells fresh as well. I can't wait for Bulgari Aqua Marine to come out in '08....

    Absolutely hands down my favorite fresh cologne is Dunhill Fresh.
    Overwhelmingly fresh,
    Extremely clean, natural, and fresh without being sharp at all. Very soft.

    A darker fresh smell that's been mentioned is Bvlgari Aqva.
    Seaweed, Saltwater, greens that grow on reefs, that sort of smell.
