Ok, the sun is shining and a warm breeze is blowing and all of my favorites are winter scents and too heavy for summer use. I am looking for great and only GREAT scents for warm weather. MI is on my list already.
However I do need choices which are appropriate for multiple occasions. What I need it to be able to have casual day wear and possibly a little more formal,
must be pleasing to the ladies (doesn't have to be the mythical panty droppers but it could help,)
and something for indoor use such as at church while atoning for my Saturday night sins.
Any suggestions are appreciated. I hope to get by with four new selections in addition to the MI so multi use is important to me.
YSL L'Homme - great day/night wear
Carthusia Uomo - an exceptional marine with musky/animalic undertones
Terre d'Hermés - a great all-rounder for casual & semi formal
Colonia Intensa - exceptional for classy summer evening excursions
Like I said in another similar thread, I suggest summer versions of all YSL Scents: Opium D'Orient, M7 Fresh, Rive Gauche Light, Kouros Summer edition, also Live Jazz and L'Homme.
Also, Fahrenheit Summer, DG Masculine, CK Truth, Moschino Friends, L'Eau Par Kenzo
"We are fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion: the stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases, while the citizens may act only by permission; which is the stage of the darkest periods of human history, the stage of rule by brute force." Ayn Rand...

Building off of LuciusVorenus, I'll add CRAVACHE. It goes nicely from day to night and has a nice touch of clary sage and lavender that both energizes the lemon and bridges it to the nutmeg. Since you like the "winter" frags, I think the nutmeg and patchouli will attract you to this one. Overall, it is similar to Eau Sauvage but feels slightly more complex. I always think of Eau Sauvage, Cravache, and Boucheron as the three quintessentially French gentlemanly frags. They share some notes and are all similar in feel if nothing else, so maybe you should check out Boucheron as well.

So far it looks like Eau Sauvage and Terre de Hermes are strong prospects. All are great ideas but I will go over the notes tomorrow to get a better idea of those I am not yet familiar with.
I am also curious about which fruits, with orange probably being most used, that are the most popular scents. Grapefruit and lemon come to mind but what about some of the lesser known or used fruit notes.
