    Default What Is the BEST Summer Scent?

    I'm wondering what's the best summer scent that attracts a lot of attention, you know, the smell that goes perfect with sandals, when you're out in the streets, and you're out in the hot scorching weather wearing your sleeveless shirt, what fragrance is most refreshing and great?

    Hmmm..not too many of those sound familiar, but I like Tommy Bahama, the clear-bottled one, what do you think? That literally smells like the ocean and a bunch of palm trees/spring air.

    Versace Eau Fraiche is good for a fruity, fresh fragrance.
    Seconding Prada Infusion d'Homme for 'fresh white linen'

    I don't know anything about attracting attention, but Eau de Rochas Pour Homme is very nice for summer. Check it out if you can find it.

    I frequently used to reach for Terre D'Hermes during the hotter months in socal, but since getting my bottle of L'Air du Desert Marocain, I want to try that out this summer.

    My favorite summer scent is Un Jardin Sur Le Nil (Hermes). I have gotten compliments from three female coworkers on that one. My second choice is Acqua di Gio (Armani). Men seem to like it. For the more adventurous, Chanel No. 5 Eau Premiere is excellent.

    Escada Sunset Heat. I've tried decants of just about every "summery" scent I could possibly get my hands on, and Sunset Heat came on top. It's perfect for t-shirts, heat, and sandals.

    Bvlgari Aqua, Live Jazz, Terre d'Hermes, Mugler Cologne and Tom Ford for Men out of what I own (and thats my order of preference). I have a bottle of Issey on the way though that might knock Live Jazz from 2nd place.
    Also, whoever said D&G pH during summer - maybe in cooler summers, but in 35 deg. C + here in Perth this would be unbearable!

    Azzaro Now is a decent choice. My friend just bought a 1.7 oz. bottle for $14.99 at Marshalls. It's really fruity and seems like it would be ideal for the warmer months. I have yet to try Terre d'Hermes in the warm months since I bought it during the fall. Horizon by Guy Laroche is a discontinued fragrance but is also one that pops up in my local Marshalls once in a while. My friend just bought another 1.7 oz. bottle for $5.99. Lacoste original can also be a good choice. I'm sure the Calvin Klein fragrances are decent summer wear as well.

    Royal, what does it smell like? Can you describe? I hope not some cheap bubble-gum, lolli-pop type smell..

    Have you smelled Tommy Bahama, the clear bottled one? That smells real nice for summer, what do you think?

    There are so many great light or uplifting summer fragrances. Too many to chose from and there will be new ones out too. These are some favorites:

    Dry citrus & woods: Signoricci, Live Jazz, Bois d' Cedrat, or Diamonds for Men, Bigarade Concentree

    Crisp summer gourmands like: Kenzoair, Cereus No. 11, Ice Men, Eau de Iles

    Light woods / incense: D Squared HE Wood, Kyoto, Wall St., Maestrale, Jubilation XXV

    Light green/florals like: Angelique Sous la Pluie, Eau de Campagne, Scent One Hinoki, Tumbuktu, Bleeker St., 28 La Pausa, L'Homme de Coeur, Gendarme.

    Summery vetiver: Sel d' Vetiver, Carlos Corinto Vetiver, Vetiveru, Vetiver pour Homme

    The post was asking for what is the "BEST" summer scent and I guess I could narrow it to 3 bests: Sel d' Vetiver, Timbuktu, Jubilation XXV.

    It's a very fruity scent, but I wouldn't call it bubble-gum or lolli-pop at all. It isn't too sweet like far too many designer "summer" scents are, it just smells of tropical fruits. It's surely for a younger set though. It dries down to a wonderful light (not on silage, mind you) fouegre sort of scent, it reminds me of the beach, sandals, and t-shirts to be quite honest. I haven't touched the clear bottled Tommy Bahama though, but I'll put it on my "to sniff" list. I've ordered 30 decants of various scents that I thought would epitomize "summer", both designer and niche, and somehow the Sunset Heat came out on top. Your mileage may vary, as all scents will.
