Thread: Need help with a Summer Cologne
I'm trying to find a good summer cologne. I want something light, refreshing, soapy and 'beachy' . I don't want anything creamy or with vanilla. Basically I love Tommy Hilfiger Summer 2005 but its becoming hard to find. I'm looking for something similar. And PLEASE nothing synthetic like Curve Wave. Oh and nothing ridiculously expensive like a Creed or Bond no. 9.
No I haven't but I was actually very intrigued by reading the reviews. They look like one I'd like. Thanks!

Eau Sauvage by Christian Dior.

Bulgari Acqua marine sounds good for you.
I also suggest to try Hermès Eau des merveilles for something beachy and marine but totally different: it's marketed as a feminine scent but it's pretty unisex.
Aqua for sure. aqua marine is ok, but the original is a must try.
Issey Miyake for sure
the plain one

Thanks for the responses!
Another that I would approve of it Mugler Cologne. It has fallen out of the spotlight but still a very good scent. Some others are: Blue Jeans, Cool Water, and Colonia. The last is a stretch but it is light and "beachy" in a way... Marc Jacobs men. Happy Hunting!

I think Joop Nightflight just might be what you're looking for
Surprised not to see acqua di gio here yet.
Acqua di Parma Colonia, is a wonderful lemon and rose with great longevity on me. Surely one of my go to summer fragrances.
I think Nightflight is not a light summer scent.But who knows, give it a try.
I also recommend the summer variations of the CK Eternity and Versace pour homme!
You may be surprised by Chevignon by Chevignon. Great bang for the buck. Big bottles still around $20 and the juice smells great.
I wear it on a regular work rotation.
