    Default Looking for: daily summer wear

    I'm looking for a fresh scent that i can wear daily over the summer months.

    Few years back I fell in love with lacoste essential, but am looking for a replacement... something cool and a little flowery. Now I'm all for the jp gaultier line, and was wondering if anyone has feedback on the le male summer. Also, I read on one site that it is a "body spray," so how much weaker is it?

    I would personally go for Lanvin L'Homme for office, Creed MI for casual going out and Tom Ford for Men in a more formal setting. The Tom Ford one really smells great in summer when it mixes with a bit of body heat.

    AdP Colonia or Penhaligon's Castile.

    Le Male summer isn't so great, it's a watered-down version of the original. There's much better summer-edition scents, like Very Irresistible Fresh Attitude Summer Cocktail. What a mouthful! But it's much better than Very Irresistible... I'm not sure if it's better than the Fresh Attitude, but I happened to like it a lot.

    If you're looking for a fun and fruity scent, Un Jardin sur le Nil is your best bet.

    Hermes Concentree d'Orange Verte is great - and has a matching soap for your shower...

    I'm not a big fan of JPG at all, but if you're looking for a fruity but complex fragrance you should check out Mont Blanc Individuel. Also light with fruit based topnotes is the obscure (but inexpensive) Bob Mackie for men. If you're willing to go more citrus than sweet fruit, I'm a huge fan of Chanel Allure Homme Sport (and the cologne version is marketed as a body spray), which is definitely go-to scent recently.

    As I haven't had the opportunity to sample all of the following scents, I am not able to recommend them, but think that they may fit the fresh/citrus/floral type of summer scent. Maybe someone who has tried all of them could comment on them and compare them? A hint of whether they'd suit better the twenty-something or the more mature crowd would also be highly appreciated!

    - Burberry Summer
    - Paul Smith Story
    - Chanel Allure Sport Cologne

    Thanks & Regards

    I have Burberry Summer and Chanel Allure Sport Cologne. Both are very nice. Burberry Summer is the fresher of the two. Both could be weared by anyone between 18 and 40 I think. Over 40 and I'll look for something with a little more class, like AdP Colonia or Penhaligon's Castile as I recommended above (they will also work well on younger people).

    Well, considering I'm a student and will be working days in a care-home, I just realized there isn't much use for too fresh of a daily cologne... so something fairly versatile, but leaning towards citrus/fruit & floral would be what I'm looking for.

    (sorry, I'm new with fragrances, so I can't speak in your guys' language at this time)

    I'll throw a vote out for Geir. It's cool, but sweet smelling at the same time. Could be just what you're looking for.

    The one I keep reaching for this summer is Puro Lino. I wear it several times a week.

    Agree! Puro Lino is the best thing in high humidity. I'm sure I'll use my entire bottle this summer.

    Hey! I just transferred my gigantic bottle of Cartier EDC to the locker at work and have spent the weekend on the geriatric ward fending off blue haired ladies who think I smelled like a lovely, lovely haystack.

    so something fairly versatile, but leaning towards citrus/fruit & floral would be what I'm looking for.
    However, for the requirements of young master derekzak I think perhaps Clinique's Happy might be more of the kind of thing he's looking for.

    I became a recent convert to Eau Sauvage.
    It's been lying around all this time in my parents' home and I never cared to sample it until a few weeks ago.
    Now I know why it's always cited as a classic citrus and one of Roudnitska's masterpiece.

    If JPG for the summer, a bit flowery: the new La Cologne Fleur du Male is your friend, wich came out about a month ago. Extremely soapy at the beginning, but after about 10-15 minutes it would disappear and a very nice fresh flowery note would emerge. I highly recommend it.

    Since you are a student, perhaps an affordable suggestion would be Hermes Eau d'Orange Verte (not the Concentree). It has been out for a while, so it can be found at the online discounters. Another widely worn but good quality, low price cologne-like fragrance is CK One.

    Of the other suggestions, probably the Eau de Cartier, Nina Ricci, Burberry and Rochas can be easily found at discount also.

    I guess it's just you and me enjoying Puro Lino this summer. Wish we could convince more people to sample it.

    irrbloss your nose is the same as mine. Penhaligons Castile or Adp colonia intensa/original is my vote

    How about Azzaro Chrome? It's very fresh, and the hedione gives it a sort of floral dynamic without ever losing a masculine edge. The first few times I wore it, I felt it was too synthetic to enjoy, but those views have changed. On a hot day, this one is tough to beat. I also get a lot of complements from this one too.

    Other good fragrances for the summer are Mugler's Cologne and CK Be.

    I'll second the Tom Ford for men suggestion and add Aigner Black Icedrops... a real gem.. vastly underexposed.

    live jazz is one of the crowd favorites for citrusy summer fragrances. It's a hard one to dislike.

    I just exchanged a 125ml of JPG Le Male, and paid a little extra, for a 75ml of Le Male and Fluer de Male. Problem is, I just noticed there was a promotion happening at the store... buy 75ml of Le Male and get 125ml of Le Male shower gel for $2 extra.

    Looks like I'm making two trips to the store today.
