Thread: Most Unique Fresh Scent?
I find M. Micallef's Red Sea strangely fresh, strange because it has musk in its basenotes, but it has the weirdest prickling freshness throughout...
I have smelled a lot of frags, but think humble Old Spice White Water is still the best smelling fresh scent i know. Packaged as niche, there would be much raving about this.
ointments and perfume delight the heart....
I still find Laguna to be rather unique. Fresh aquatic gourmand... it's all that rolled up in one. I'm also still clinging to my Del Pozo On El; synthetic, yes, but fresh with about 1,000 notes listed. Jil Sander Man is rather unique, too. Minty, cedar, and incense.

Gendarme EDP is my favorite fresh scent
Another vote for Antidote. It's clean, fresh, sharp, with incense that makes it interesting.
I don´t know most unique but very special indeed: QUASAR by Jesus del Pozo
my current top five (always in transition)
Dior Eau Noire
HdP 1725 Casanova
eau de gloire parfum d'empire
Dia man Amouage
comme des garçons man 2
Tirrenico and Calamus

My top 5: Sea Mist; Minnow; Crab, tiger, and almonds; Semprini; Rancid Polecat N° 2
Bvlgari Eau De Vert - Magical! Extremely clean smelling
Billy Jealosy Illicit - Best out-of-the-shower smell ever
I can't recognize much of a freshness in Antidote, but uniqueness is #1.
My overall favorite in this category is Lacoste Original.
Silver Mountain Water
Petitgrain + Blackcurrant + Galbanum + Green Tea = Game Over
Virgin Island Water and Eau de New York
Right now I think that I have all the fragrances that I want.
Silver Mountain Water. Fresh - check. Unique - check.
+1 Mugler Cologne EDT
I find Hugh Parsons Blue to be very unique (in a good way).
Wicken 3000 - pure ozone and the olfactory equivalent of the scent of space.
Eau de Campagne by Sisley. It's a very wonderful scent; very fresh very green and very vegetal. This one is , IMO, the most uplifting scent. One of the best by J.C. Ellena.

Czech & Speake Cuba - Fresh and dirty at the same time.
gris clair is pretty fresh-ish i guess not in the citric way tho
Coney Island by Bond No. 9--Fresh with a gourmand twist!
Outrageous! by Frederic Malle--Fresh fruity laundry clean!
H&G Askew: One of the most beautiful green tinted citrus openings ever, with shades of orange, ruby red (grapefruit!), and yellows (the mimosa). This fades into a spiced heart where I pick up pine sap, cardamom, ginger, wet grass, asphalt/tar and hints of violet and jasmine, and leather, which eventually segues into a smokier base of vetiver, light birch tar, and a beautiful leather note. Occasionally you can still pick up a hint of mimosa, too, which always strikes the nose as a pleasant treat.
ELdO - Tom of Finland
Heeley - Sel Marin
ToF is a suede leather and vanille scent with a fresh feeling.
Sel Marin has a salty, oceanic vibe. Not even close to a typical men's aquatic...
They're both unique fresh scents in my book but i don't like either
most unique fresh scent?
Molecule 01 - pure freshness. Its so pure that when you try to smell it you can not, and when not trying at all it is all around you. 100% iso E super.
Byredo Mister Marvelous - freshness with an unexpected angular green wood note that I've never smelled before mixed into an otherwise mild mannered fresh scent. This fragrances is sneaky in its appeal. A casual sniff or test and you can easily miss its marvelousness.
Soivohle Leather Krem - notes: Well Worn Leather, Scorched Caramel, Light Woods, Whipped Cream, and a touch of Citrus in the opening. An extremely fresh gourmand leather scent. Its fresh like a burnt marshmallow is fresh.
Trumpers Extract of Limes Cologne - natural, crisp, sharp pure lime that you just can't believe it is this fresh. Lasts pretty well too.
Kenzo Air - This Maurice Roucel creation for Kenzo is half iso E super (48%), but with a jolt of anise built upon a foundation of vetiver. Bitter, green, fresh, dry.
edit: I have samples of Eau Radieuse and Askew in my cart @ AusLiebeZumDuft, can anyone tell me a domestic or better yet Chicago source for these two ??
