    I'll reiterate Racquets Formula and add Castile. 4711 is the epitome of bright and summery to me. Wore it last night and yesterday. As I walked my dog through Forsyth Park, I passed Two tulip trees and a row of azaleas that burst into bloom as the sillage hit them.

    I've been wearing Eau de Fraiche by Versace for the past two days (despite it being my Summer scent), and it is just remarkable. Nothing but compliments from everyone.

    Thierry Mugler cologne. It's bright enough to smell like some refreshing soap.
