    Here are my favorites for
    Spring:
    Philosykos, Diptyque
    Millesime Imperiale, Creed
    Lyric Man, Amouage

    and here's summer:
    Bleecker Street, Bond No. 9
    Nio, Xerjoff
    Chergui, Serge Lutens
    Virgin Island Water, Creed
    Menthe Fraiche, Heeley

    P.S. overall, I would definitely go pick MI, Lyric Man, VIW, and Menthe Fraiche above the others

    hope this is helpful!

    Absolute pour le Matin by MFK. I think the per use cost is less than the Cologne variant due to strength and longevity.

    Aventus by Creed

    And my oddity: A 50/50 wet spray mix of Green Irish Tweed and Millesime Imperial. Much of the top stays around for a very long time.
