    Default Your top 5 fav fresh scents right now

    I have realized that almost all my fav frags are strong fall/winter based ones and I have few fresh favs due to so many being unoriginal. Many are the same old, aquatic, citrus, floral with a wood base it bores me to holy hell. So I thought for those in the same boat or not we can put down the few fresh frags we like that are high quality and are not unoriginal.

    1. Millesime imperial
    2.Virgin Island water
    3. Vetiver 1948
    4.Green Irish Tweed ( even though this one can be used all year round)
    5.Silver Mountain Water

    I would put down azure lime but the lime falls off too quick.

    Hm, the best are those that became generic over time due to many knock offs:

    Borsari Acqua Colonia 1870 (a stronger Farina Gegenuber)
    Sisley Eau De Campagne (tomato stem plus green aldehydes plus oakmoss)
    Geoffrey Beene Grey Flannel (citrus plus violet leaf plus oakmoss)
    Paco Rabanne Metal (thrrrrilling fresh take on green chypre)
    Estee Lauder Beyond Paradise (damp flowers free from sin aka indole)

    Do not listen to "any" of the suggestions given before.

    There are not fresher colognes than 4711 and Farina Gegenuber, no matter what they tell you, those are way above the rest.
    Then comes Extra Vielle by Roger & Gallet, Tuscan Soul by Ferragamo, Lemon 1999 by Bigelow Apothecary and Cruise for Men by Carnival.

    Those are real fresh scents
