    Default Scent for hot holiday

    I'm off to Magaluf then Limassol this year... need a fragrance or two for the trip. I already plan on taking Terre d'hermes and/or Roma Uomo. Any suggestions on a 3rd? Maybe something I could find out there in duty free?

    Something that will only smell better in the good weather please.... Preferably NOT niche houses, im only 21 and have to minimize my spending on scents, my girlfriend thinks im nuts as it is lol

    Have a look at my wardrobe to get an idea what i like, i've added loads but cant update wardrobe yet. Recent additions i like are.... faranheit 32, Gucci pour homme 2, Allure sport, Joop Go.

    Colonia Assoluta by Acqua di Parma should fit in nicely

    For a newer fragrance, try the new JPG Monsieur Eau du Matin, supposedly it is similar to Mugler Cologne but with more bite, and JPG fragrances are famous for their longevity so it would be a good buy. It is a citrus scent as well so it will do good in the heat.

    if you are in woody/floral scents, please go check "givenchy insense ultramarine", a subtle but long lasting, refreshing soapy/floral fragrance, or if you prefer aquatics, i strongly suggest "bulgari aqua" or aqua marine... i' m in turkey, the same region for climate conditions with limasol and i wear those in summer time. the last frag that i want to suggest is "davidoff echo", a metallic and fruity and a refreshing scent that perfectly fits to summer nights, it reminds cleanliness and sensuality.

    If you like CoolWater, try it`s new summer edition called Freeze Me - it`s extremely fresh scent, very cooling & refreshing. There`s a lot of citrus in the opening - lemon, mandarin, grapefruit & strong mint accord which stands by till parfume completely fade out. In the heart there is gin, frankincence & geranium notes, the base is musky & ambery.
    Manufacturer advice to keep it in a fridge for an extra cooling effect.

    I've tried Fleur du Male Cologne version and I think it should be the best scent for this summer. Very easy to wear. Lighter and earthier than the edt version. Full of freshness, energy and manly.
