    Default What Fragrance are You Wearing Most this Summer?

    Summer of 2010 is hot! Record-setting hot! (here in the Eastern US). What fragrance are you wearing the most this summer? For me, these scents are getting a lot of rotation right now (in no order):

    1. Roadster -- very cooling, green and summery
    2. Aventus -- I'm obsessed with this new Creed!
    3. L'eau Au Masculin -- a fresh version of one of my all-time favs.
    4. VIW -- weekend relaxation!

    1. Acqua Di Gio - my work fragrance. I have to get rid of it fast because juice is loosing its topnotes.
    2. Nightflight - this is my newest summer fragrance so I tested it lot and had same amount of wearing as ADG. I use it when I dont want do any statement with fragrance.
    3. Aqva PH - my previous year signature. I use it much less than before because I prefer fragrances with sweet base right now and its only one that I use that I smelled on another people too..
    TOP 3 hot weather:

    1. Gucci Pour Homme II
    2. Lalique Encre Noire
    3. Creed Aventus


    TOP 3 cold weather:

    1. L'Instant de Guerlain Pour Homme Extreme
    2. Chanel Coromandel

    I've enjoyed Dior - Escale a Portofino in hot weather, but it has been a very cool summer here in the San Francisco Bay Area. TDC - Sublime Balkiss and L'Artisan Parfumeur - Fleur de Liane are two recent favorites that "feel like summer" to me, but I haven't really had the chance to test them in the heat.

    I find myself having fun with all sorts of fragrances this summer since it hasn't been as hot. I now like wearing orientals and you name it in warm/hot weather. I used to wear my vetivers and citrus compositions only but not this year.
    That being said, I like the warmer weather becaue it allows me to wear more of my scents and more often too. I went through a whole bottle of Mugler Cologne in a matter of weeks and almost finished my Silver Mountain Water before giving 1/4 to a friend, went through my Heritage too.

    After further review, it seems that the three I've worn most are:

    Creed GIT
    TDH

    My wife suspected as much and I confirmed it after scanning the 'drobe. And yes, they're probably my three favorite scents.

    4. VIW -- weekend relaxation!
    I've come to the conclusion, light/cool fragrances or anything inteded to be fresh is most likely to make a mess. I've tried mint, citrus, still avoided calone drenched deodorants, but what really worked was patchouli the like, orientals in the weight class of Shalimar. Or Chypres.
    To sweat is unavoidable. To smell of it either. So the frag couldn't fight against it without being overwhelming. The frag would preferably connect to that very bodily odor and try to transform it into something more interesting at least, if not pleasent. The technique of transforming a particular odor by connecting an other to it is well known in parfumery. Why not deal with body odors? That is the very utility core of perfumery isn't it?

    <edit-1> To give an example: Givenchy Insense is besides it's qualiy as being a "floral for men" (it isn't, it is a aldehydic for men, not "floral") a scent that connects to male sweat. It doesn't turn sour and never peaks out as an overlay to ordinary stink. It takes the ride from fresh green towards salted cheesy smells without any dissonance. Anyone sniffing around would take the idea of someone taking overt care of himself, instead of a weak sister trying to hide underneath some aromachemicals ...

    <edit-2> Givenchy III, a chypre directed against the wallets of females connects to - garlic! Just try as an experiment to eat as much of that "lilly of the kitchen" as possible e/g in butter applied to grapevine snails aka escargots, parsley ... . Luca Turin once mentioned that someone else mentioned the reason for chypres success being food. Again, connecting to B.O. is a purpose in traditional European perfumery. Your ELDOrado for sensual colognes could be the phalanx of well done original chypres and orientals instead of maligned "fresh" scents.

    <edit-3 and out, promised> Valentino, Ocean Rain is a cologne that has a bite. Wearing that would for sure recall lucky days a the beach, hot days, eye watering smells of decomposing algae, and -no- silly ozone-something disney-fresh TV-adventures with Flipper. Being really at the shore makes a difference an intelligent human will argue anytime in the back of its mind. It connects to sweat too, perfectly.
