    Default top 5 sexiest FRESH fragrances

    The thread the 007 created about top 5 sexiest fragrance got me thinking:

    What do u think the top 5 sexiest FRESH fragrances are?? like summer, citrus, aquatic, fresh, fragrance. fragrances that fall under that category.

    I know its not east for a fresh fragrance to be "sexy", but if u had to name the top 5 what would it be?

    From my experience, Acqua Di Gio is what women think it the sexiest fresh scent.

    I just smelled an overdose of AdG on a 60+ year old man yesterday. Definitely NOT sexy.

    Hmm..

    Thanks DC, I love the fresh scents by creed, not all but many of them. They are not as synthetic as the others on the market., i have a bottle of millesime imperial and it is great, i want to buy aventus, silver mountain water, original vetiver and green irish tweed later on. Virgin island is great, very topical and citrusy you will love it, it does not last a long long time but i love it. Supposedly the fresh creeds are better in winter because there is not a lot of heat that oxidizes the cologne.

    I like your list. Sadly, Nio is the one Xerjoff I haven't tried. I'm also dying to try L'eau de Jatamansi, firstly because it's all-natural and secondly because it's by one of my new favorite noses, Karine Vinchon. It's interesting that you put it in this 'sexy' listing - I hadn't heard it described as such before.

    Fresh ≠ sexy. Mugler Cologne is nice and could be sexy on an attractive person, though, as would Eau Sauvage, Guerlain Vetiver, Original Vetiver and any number of classic colognes.

    I really love L'Eau de Jatamansi. It's very light, though, so be forwarned. Although light, it lasts all day on me. It works really well in the summer. It was all I could do not to wear it every day these past few months. I was really excited at the news that Karine Vinchon had three fragrances out this year.

    I wouldn't list it myself as "sexy," but maybe my idea of sexy isn't "fresh."

    That said, 5 sexy fresh fragrances might be:

    Eau d'Orange Verte
    Ninfeo Mio
    Gris Clair...?
    Eau Sauvage

    I don't mean to be an ass, but really; fragrances are not sexy. And I'm not saying this in a discussion ending "to each his own" -way. That's not my point, it never is. What I mean is, that I can't imagine a situation, where a fragrance itself would be sexy. In a vacuum, without a context. It's kind of like saying that a piece of clothing is sexy in itself. Knowing yourself, understanding the situation, knowing how much to wear and to wear with confidence, that's sexy. It's really surprising how different fragrances I've found to be sexy. In some situations even a serious and reserved fragrance can be sexy, sometimes a sporty fragrance I usually wouldn't be that fond of.

    I personally like Acqua di Gio if it's applied lightly.

    Heh. I know what you mean. I guess 'sexy' means different things to different people. For me, whenever a fragrance charms a nose well enough for it to lean in closer to the wearer's skin as though it can't get enough of the scent, THAT'S 'sexy'.

    'Longevity' shouldn't matter either; after all it's not the length that matters.

    Speaking only for myself, I do not equate "fresh" with "sexy."

    I see sexy as spicy, with lavender and heavy florals (esp. jasmine), or something animalic, like civet, musk or cumin.

    Acqua di Gio is appealing to women only because it's the only scent they know of and it's popular.

    I concur with jcpetrucci that fresh and sexy are oxymorons.

    I do too. A woman's thought process isn't "I smell that all the time and I know nothing of colognes so that has to be sexy." The thought process is "that smells really good on him and therefore is sexy." It's that simple. My wife knows nothing of what is popular and she doesn't go out too much. But if something smells good on me, she lets me know....and it can be fresh or boozy/spicy. If she is catching whiffs and I look good....sexy. It isn't that complicated.

    I agree with the disagreement, AdG is not a bad fragrance. Back when it was not a well known fragrance here I used to wear it to the clubs and pubs all the times. Girls and women would say I smell good (in their own words). None of them knew that I wear AdG, and I never told anyone that asks anyway.

    It seems like some regard their climate and taste to be the only definition of sexy.
    What they think of as sexy I smell as cloying, dated, old, and well regarded mostly by mature ladies.
    That said, I find both Roadster and Blanche to be nice compromises, even the mature crowd smell some depth in them. Unless you are trying to impress a perfumista, in which case you are better off concentrating on other venues.
