    Your advice would be welcome and additions. I find some of the summer fragrances don't seem to last that long esp Paul Smith Sunshine and Givenchy

    Coolwater lasts about 10 hours on me. Also, Jaguar Fresh lasts 12+ hours on me (GREAT SMELL very under rated)..

    I have quite a few on the list. So here's my take on them.

    Chanel Allure Homme Sport - This would be the pick of the bunch. long lasting with good sillage

    YSL L'Homme - It was my SOTD and i enjoy this frag, Decent sillage and longevity. never gets cloying.

    Gucci by Gucci Pour Homme - Decent but lacking sillage and longevity. Smells generic and boring towards the end.

    Guerlain Homme - Very refreshing and surprisingly it lasts quite long with average sillage. Great for summer

    Paul Smith Story - Minimalist frag. Quite a short story (pun intended). Starts off really nicely but becomes close to skin after about an hour or so. Sillage is minimal.

    Unforgivable - Better than the average fresh frag. Average sillage and longevity.

    Terre d'Hermes - Not a true summer scent but possible if u don't overspray. Amazing sillage n longevity.

    CK Man - Natural smelling but weak in terms of sillage and longevity.

    Other suggestions: Hermes Concentrée D'Orange Verte, Davidoff Silver Shadow Altitude, Bulgari Aqua, Versace Pour Homme, Clinique Happy for Men.

    I get good longevity and sillage out of CK Man. An excellent summer frag.

    Antidote is a good light oriental that is suitable for summer, but would be a bit much on the hottest of days.

    I second the recommendation of Versace Pour Homme - it's similar to Allure Homme Sport but a bit woodier and more masculine. AHS is a bit more playful/sexy, though. Sniff both and see.

    Out of all the things you mention, I only try Paul smith Story, well, that's frag is weird. It reacts differently, on different people. Completely different. Some will have citrus, some have herbal, some have floral. For me i have "dish washer"! Good for summer if you can pull that off.

    Allure Homme Sport is my favorite there.

    Call me crazy, but I do like CK In2u. Allure Homme Edition Blanche is a better take on that type though.

    So, both the Allure Sport and Edition Blanche would be worth checking out for summer

    Out of that list, I'd be wearing M7, but don't go by my nose.

    Although M7 actually works very well in the heat if you only use one spray. I wouldn't be surprised if someone who typically wears 4-5 sprays of stuff thinks it's a cold-weather-only scent.

    IMO, that is the best summer scent of the ones you mentioned.
