Aramis New West
Dunhill Desire Blue
Long story short i basically have ~80$ credit from amazon.com
I am looking for a couple new summer frags especially after losing my issey miyake in israel.
Basically i dont want to spend too much on summer scents because i am usually not as pleased with summer scents as much as i am with winter scents.
I found a couple classics on amazon for fairly low price.
As of right now this is what i am buying:
1. M7 Fresh 1.7oz - 40$
2. Moschino Uomo 3.4oz - 18$
3. Salvador Dali Laguna, or Le Roy Soleil - 21$
What would you choose for around 80$ (dont worry about shipping)
Aramis New West
Dunhill Desire Blue

I often reach for Cuba Green, which is super cheap. It's a citronella, fruit, and herbal frag with a mild woody/amber base. It's well made, with no flaws.

Le Roy Soleil is a good choice.
Some others I'd consider
Romance Silver (would get this absolutely without question. A perfect summer evening fragrance).
Azzaro Now Men (a cool green floral that is very smooth. Refreshing.)
L'Anarchiste (apple pie and woods, best in the autumn but this really blooms in the summer heat)
Reaction T-Shirt (very underrated!)
Paul Smith Story (grapefruit + vetiver)
Davidoff Adventure Amazonia (green leaves into an orangey peppery tea heart into a light sandalwood base. Not amazing, but quite nice and actually does evolve)
Iris Pallida 50ml
Ungaro I 75ml
and more! - http://www.basenotes.net/threads/301...n-Man-and-more
yeah i tired L'Anarchiste together with Pour un Homme and i really liked them.
I am going to buy them at this high-end store next to my house. last time i bought some skincare stuff i got 5 different creed and Bond samples. They want about 50 for each, but the samples make it worth the extra money.
I was thinking about Dior Dune, but its not very cheap. I figured that instead of finding an interesting summer scent i rather have a variety. (same goes for Aramis New West)
Guerlain Vetiver is a little too mature for me. Im 21 so with vetivers im leaning towards Tom Ford GV, which right now i have 6 samples of.
Some other options i was thinking:
Canali Men - I find it an all weather fragrance, and its about 25$
Canali Summer Night - would be a blind buy, but i heard its pretty good - any one can support this?
Gendarme G EDP 3.4oz - 28$ on amazon...is it good?
I use to wear Lancome Hypnose in the summer and really enjoyed it. I would definetely recommend it.
I really enjoy Canali for Men. I think it would make a fine choice. Seems like a good price too.

Jungle pour homme/Kenzo
does this seem legit to you guys?
Its the Gendarme G EDP 3.4oz for 28$...
I am afraid it may not be authentic
i'm digging paul smith story. although it does smell like shampoo if you've got great hair people will be drawn to look at it.
Unless I missed it, I see no mention of Live Jazz! Great summer fragrance, not at all aquatic, unless you find lemon and mint opening notes to be aquatic. Also, Tommy Bahama, Michael Jordan, Cool Water, Realities.
I have to agree with The Cologneist on some of his choices here. Live Jazz is a great summer scent by YSL and it is affordable. Also, Tommy Bahama Set Sail for St. Barts is very similar to CREED's Virgin Island Water (very tropical). The original Tommy Bahama is also good, and affordable. I know some may not like the Tommy Bahama fragrances, but I really think these 2 are very good and have excellent longevity. This is something that is sorely lacking even in many expensive niche fragrances. Good luck and have fun this summer!

If you can find any Kenzo at a bargain price, go for it. They are subtle and great for summer. And I would agree whole heartedly with your choice of M7 Fresh. 4711 is almost exclusively a budget frag these days and always good to have on hand. Enjoi!
Support your local Leonberger rescue.
Why is 4711 so cheap? lol i might just squeeze it in that list.
Any support for Moschino Uomo and Gendarme G?
Im pretty set on M7 Fresh as of right now being a certain buy
