    Default Sweet 'n Fresh Fragrance!

    Any recommendations??

    I love and own SMW, and was thinking of getting Polo Blue. I have a sweet tooth.

    O yeah, and I'm 18. Thanks.

    How sweet? Floral? Ocean/Water type frag? Sweet and Spicy?

    I don't have a preference other than both sweet and fresh. Make a suggestion?

    Perhaps based on basenoters who like SMW and Polo Blue.

    Based on my most recent reviews, I think you should try Outrageous, by Frederic Malles (acceptfacts will certainly second this), and also Un Jardin sur le Nil, by Hermes. UJSLN is not spicy at all, but it's unbelievably fresh. I love it.

    Also, look into some MPG scents. I'm not too savvy on them, but I know that Bahamia is very well liked by certain people who have fantastic taste in scents.

    Iceberg Twice and YSL Live Jazz should be easy to find.

    "Sweet and fresh" are very popular in the fragrance world right now, especially with the younger crowd. The challenge is not in finding sweet, fresh scents but finding sweet, fresh scents of any real quality.

    If you wnat to look at niche lines, but pay less than you would for SMW, I might suggest the following:

    Annick Goutal Le Nuits d'Hadrien, which is bright and citrusy, but has some depth and none of the nasty "Jolly Rancher" elements that mar so many modern fruit scents.

    Comme des Garcons Parfums series 1 Leaves: Lily and and Parfums series 1 Leaves: Calamus are both superb fresh green scents that wear very well in warm weather.

    L'Artisan Parfumeur Mure et Musc is another winner, as is Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier's delicious, exotic Bahiana.

    Finally, one of my very favorite scents in this genre: Serge Lutens's Fleurs de Citronnier - bouyant, bubbly citrus with sweet lemon blossoms and smooth woods over a base of clean musk and vanilla.

    Among the more accessible designer scents, Tuscany and Devin, both by Aramis, combine bright, fresh citrus and green notes with sweeter woody accords. Both happen to have been staples of mine when I was your age (and dinosaurs ruled the earth).

    Oh, and don't buy blind!!! There are plenty of convenient sources for niche and designer fragrance samples. Just use this forum's search tool to find threads on good, reliable online sources.

    You shouldn't have to buy blind...I'm sure somebody can point you in the direction of a place where you can get samples first.

    Kenzo's L'eau Par Kenzo is QUITE sweet and fresh. Have put it into hibernation for the winter, but if I remember correctly...

    Top notes: green, leafy. Reminds me of a freshly cut lawn (here's your fresh)
    Heart: Watery, marine elements. Citrusy. (freshness!) and also vanilla (your sweetness)
    Base notes: I don't remember, but not too strong.

    Fresh Sugar!!!! (It's got grapefruit-y lemon in it and has readonable longevity.
    Yumsters!!

    I'm toying with the notion of a full bottle so if you want to try it and have trouble finding a sample - keep in touch. I may be able to help you!)

Plus it's not actively promoted, so you wont find anyone wearing it but yourself. Safe blind buy because of the price (I bought it blind too).

    I agree with Taolady - Fresh Sugar, or any scent from the Fresh line. You can find them at Sephora easily (which I think they have in the UK, right?)

    If you have SMW then you should love GIT.

    For super-duper fresh try Nightflight by Joop! Its not overly sweet, although it does have pineapple in it. Its more of a citrus-fresh fragrance that dries down to something inexplicably good, similar to just-washed laundry hanging on the line (but a million times nicer). Id actually compare it as a 'complicated' Polo Blue, as Polo Blue was my every-day usual frag until I discovered Nightflight.
