    Default Best men's cologne for summer

    I'd like some advice from you, dear people. Currently on my mind are Kenzo pour homme, Davidoff cool water and Bvlgari aqua.

    But I'd like some more insights!

    Thank you in advance

    From the ones you have listed that you're interested in, I think you should check out Armani Prive Vetiver Babylone. It can be worn in other seasons, but I think it plays very nice with warm summers.

    Green Water by Jacques Fath is nice, as is Opium Eau d'Orient pour Homme. There are SOOOOO many others I could list, yes, but these two just popped to mind right away this A.M.

    Peggy: "Yes, but he hit his head on a lawn gnome."

    Barry (Jock) beat me to it. Chanel Allure Homme Sport Cologne (clear bottle) is awesome for summer. It's my SOTD and has garnered me many compliments in the past.

    I was torn between it and Terre d'Hermes this AM. We finally have a beautiful day after downpours the last two.
    Current faves: Aventus, Green Irish Tweed, MFK Masculin Pluriel, Dior Homme Eau, TDH Parfum

    I think Burberry's new offerring, The Beat, will be excellent for Spring/Summer. I can't wait to order it.

    One that I have dusted off following the first temperature reading over 10c is Balmain Monsieur. It is an exceptionally well balanced citrus offering, and once you have survived the rather intense opening, it blooms into a delightfully refereshing fragrance.

    Clear bottle? But the bottle is Metallic! Unless you're talking about the EdC and I'm just being ignorant >_>

    Also I second Chanel Allure Homme Sport.

    Get classic and sophisticated - Aqua di Parma Colonia.

    btw - you're right to pick up Kenzo as well. The Eau paur homme (?spelling) is mesmerizing, soft and fresh.

    When it's hot and I've got to go out in it, I usually reach for Vetiver de Puig.

    Friction de Foucaud Body Tonic :
    (from company promotional material):
    When French military officers were living in Indochine (modern-day Vietnam) during the first part of the 20th century, many experienced skin irritations that often occurs in humid tropical climates.

    Madame Lucienne MERLE who was living in Indochine responded by concocting her now-famous skin treatment, Friction de Foucaud Invigorating Body Tonic. Not only did the soldiers use it to cure their rashes, they soon became addicted to it for daily use due to its refreshing sensation and fragrance.

    Upon their return home, the soldiers helped spread the popularity of the tonic and it quickly became a favorite grooming product among men and, later, among women as well. The original formula, created by Madame MERLE in 1946, has not changed and the product is still used by the French Foreign Legion today. The Foucaud body tonic owes its success to its secret aroma therapeutic blend of menthol, camphor, and essential oils of orange, lemon, lavender, rosemary and thyme.

    This unique combination of ingredients creates the particularly refreshing and uplifting fragrance Friction de Foucaud has become famous for.

    I just got a sample of Joop Nightflight, and I personally don't like it. I think it smells way to loud for a summer scent. It reminds me of like glue with synthetic pinapple or something. I think it smells like Avatar by Coty, or perhaps a little like Adidas Moves (but not as good as Moves). Its a very 90's scent. I was very dissapointed with it. Then again, many people like it, so maybe you will as well.

    Creed Imperial, Erolfa, Royal Water, Green Irish Tweed, lacoste essential, Chanel allure blanche, Dunhill Pursuit, Bulgari Aqua, Bulgari Aqua Marine ( if you're into that scent) guerlian imperiale, narciso rodriguez musc, not so much the edt, too heavy for summer ( I think).
    There is also Aqua di gio, worn by just about every teenager, good scent though.
    There is Polo Modern Reserve, not as strong as original polo.

    I would have to say the best ones out of all of them, are Erolfa, and Bulgari Aqua. In my opinion both can be worn in the daytime and evening. Hopes this helps.

    An aquired taste but...Fire Island from Bond. The smell of warm skin that has been in the sun, mixed with sweat/salt suntan oil, and sand. It took me time to get my arms around it, but it is dead on sexy and different from the standard fare citrus summer frags most will wear. This one will be in heavy rotation for me this year for warm temps. This could be a signature scent for someone also.

    Or if you like you can wait a lil while and get it at marshalls. But if you must have it, go for it my friend, by the time you are done with the bottle, you can go to marshalls and get extras.

    Funny you said that, cuz I saw the Beat for women at Marshalls. Couldn't believe the price though...$54!!! It might've been the big bottle though, but I'm use to seeing thier fragrances at 34.99 at the most. But I'm gonna just go ahead and order it online today. Just got my tax money back, and I'm flying HIGH!!! I'm about to get a bunch of samples too. I'm just not sure what exactly to get.
