    Default Some fresh , nice , inexpensive and with long lasting for warm days??

    hi friends ,

    what do you think about it?
    I think that most of cases of fresh fruity/citrus fragrances for the summer do not last long on my skin...

    so.....

    Fragonard Vetyver. Should be easier to find in Spain, and if not it can be ordered easily from the Fragonard Web site.

    Consider Eternity (Calvin Klein). Lasts long, has fruit & wood, can be had in small inexpensive bottles. Test it first.

    Cuba Green: seems to be herbs and citronella with a mild woody/amber base. Natural and pleasant (and super cheap). Lasts very well, but you need to spray more for strong sillage, which is fine, considering the price.

    After today I can tell you, Cool Water by davidoff. Wonderful. Since I have been a BNer I've seen quite a few negative reviews. Yesterday I bought a bottle just to see for myself and today I wore it for the first time. I like it a lot and received several compliments about smelling good. So there, try it, you might like it!!

    Solo Loewe and Solo Loewe extreme- two modern yet classy, quite long lasting and non-generic male frags, suitable for being worn in summer and, since their manufacturer is Spanish, less inexpensive to purchase in Spain

    well Ken,both of them are expensive even here, Loewe´s fragances have always high prices.Also Solo pop, the new one fron them, is fresh, fruity and nice for summer time.

    Plus 1 to Mugler cologne, especially for the "inexpensive" bit: 100 ml for about 30 quid in UK, and even cheaper on line. A winner!

    Marc Jacobs Fig. Not citrus, but I find it green and fresh and good for summer days. It's sold as a 'splash', but it lasts through a workday, at least for me. Not super-cheap at EUR50, but that is for a 300ml bottle.

    It starts out fruity-fresh and then becomes woody and musky, but please read the reviews, because I´m not good at describing scents. It´s definitely more elegant than Versace Pour Homme and doesn´t come across as synthetic and loud as Versace PH does IMO. Sillage is moderate and thanks to the musk it´s really long-lasting, on me easily 8 hours and more. A good allrounder!

    Try Davidoff - Good Life. I love it for hot rainy days.

    Another inexpensive long-lasting fresh scent is Curetti - Image Fresh Energy. It lasts 10hrs+ on me with only 4 or 5 sprays. it actually is strangely energizing.

    thanx NDN , I´ve heard good reviews of that but It seems to have very poor longevity although very good smell.

    When I first got it I thought it had poor longevity, however, I've found that it really flourishes in humidity. A moderate/semi-moderate application can easily last eight hours on me. It's not a strong scent, but it lingers, continually wafting pleasantly. Too much of it can turn a little to sweet and kinda sticky feeling.

    +1. Also, try L'Occitane Badian which is of the similar vein.

    If you want fresh and inexpensive try Alfred Sung Hei. It's in the $20 range.

    I think Chrome is good for your description. Is not cheap at all,about 60 usd the big bottle of 200 ml....Thats a very nice price.
    In my case last very long and have nice sillage....A little bit flat, but its nice.

    M.David and the Versace Eau Fraiche Defense Frontline!!! Hi! M.David... i'm still trying to get something out of Eau Fraiche... doesn't smell on my skin. And what i mean to say is that it doesn't smell anything, like i didn't sprayed it at all.

    Blackened I'm considering Mugler Cologne too for the day to day and office use. I like Chrome, but a close friend of mine uses it everyday. I just don't like to wear someone's else signature frag.

    I'm considering Cool Water too... Live Jazz and Burberry Classic. I'll go hunting today i'll tell you if I find anything...

    I'm looking forward to find A*Men Sunessence here in Sevilla. No luck yet though.

    Nobody mentioned it, so I will - Versace Pour Homme ( very similar to Allure Homme Sport)

    Chrome
    Chrome Sport
    Boss in motion black (very nice woody aromatic that has a fruity touch to it)
    Cerruti Pour Homme
