    Smile Help needed! (Finding that perfect summer scent)

    Hi!

    I'm "semi-new" on this board!

    I need some help to choose a scent (or two) for the summer. Basically I'm 22 year old (guy) with a casual style, "playful" but serious when needed. Dark brown hair, brown eyes (hehe don't know if this information is of any use).
    The problem is that I'm tired of my summer scents. I've been using YSL M7 fresh, TM Cologne and Issey Myiake (L'eau d'Issey) last couple of years. Need something new, something that doesn't scream "mainstream".

    Any comments on these? (haven't tried them):

    - AdP Colonia
    - AdP Colonia Intensa
    - Adp Colonia Assoulta
    - Terre d'Hermes
    - Burberry Summer (probably falls under the category "mainstream" but...)

    Others?

    I'll be spending most my summer in Bosnia (Sarajevo) and on the coast of Croatia. Temperatures can reach over 80F.

    Thanks

    (sorry for bad english)

    AdP Colonia. I like Creed's Millesime Imperial also.

    Terre D'Hermes has got a lot of rave reviews on this very site (unfortunately, we can't see them right now )

    I personally have it and find it to be pretty amazing. TdH is an extremely versatile + unique scent... it comes highly recommended from me.

    Terre is GREAT. Almost worth a blind buy.

    Burberry Summer smells nice, but at the moment I cant smell it worth a damn. I already started a complaint thread on it, so I'll digress here. You'll probably need about 6 sprays of it to really get it going unless its already summer/hot there.

    I think Hanae Mori might be a nice scent for the summer, it's got a nice vanilla note to it. Haven't picked it up but it's on my next to get list.
