    Default Long-lasting summer fragrance

    Hi everyone.
    I am 21 and I am looking for a summer fragrance that will last quite long - most of them "disappear" after 2-3 hrs. I know it depends on body chemistry but I am sure that some of them last longer than others. I am considering:
    1. Carolina Herrera 212
    2. Versace Man Eau Fraiche (light blue bottle)
    3. Versace Man (dark blue bottle)
    4. Angel Schlesser Homme
    Which of them would you recommend?

    212 looks like a good bet. I have this and its very suitable for summer not to mention very long lasting with decent sillage. But there's something in the top notes i don't like...but after about 1 hr that note is not so prominent and 212 takes a turn for the better.

    Versace Man Eau Fraiche - Perfect for summer too. But i only sampled a few times at the mall so i can't comment on the sillage/longevity. A pretty average fresh scent nothing special.

    Versace Man - Long lasting with good sillage. I wanted to get this some time back but changed my mind because i thought it would be too heavy for summer. I might get this in the future.

    Angel Schlesser Homme - never heard or tried before.

    I think you're probably referring to Versace Pour Homme in the dark blue box (versace man is a different scent). This is nice and decently lasting. By far my favorite long lasting fantastic smelling summer scent would be Chanel Allure Homme Sport, which is quite similar to Versace Pour homme, but better IMO and lasts 8+ hours on me.

    For your list I would have to say 212 - it can last for a long time on the skin.

    I would also add:

    L'Eau d Issey

    Swiss Army

    Chrome

    Wings

    Bond No 9 Wall St - expensive but lasting power is superb.

    I already have Chrome. I like it but I need some change. What would say about Boss Energise, Joop! Beach Clubbing or Givenchy Pour Homme Blue Label?

    From your list I have Versace Man Eau Fraiche. I absolutely love it for the summer. On me it projects really good and lasts longer than most citrus/fresh scents. I also get lots of compliments for it.

    Definitely Versace Man. This purple elixir lasts forever on me. I really like it.
