    Default Something light and sweet

    Looking for something light and sweet, i was going to spring for Tonka Imperiale but for some reason my interest has cooled on it. Want something i can use mostly all year round, something sweet, not tooth-ache sweetness but something nice. any suggestions??

    You can wear New Haarlem all year round. It's sweet, but very well balanced.

    Forgive me for asking but why have you cooled down on Tonka Imperiale? I thought it was a real class act!

    main factor was i didnt feel like spending all that money on something that just smelt good to me. if my search hits a wall i might get it.

    Yeah, Dior Homme Cologne (not the EdT) sounds like it would work for you, but you have to like iris.

    I think Felanilla by Parfumerie Generale would be a good choice.

    Yes. Vanilla, iris, banana, saffron...and surprisingly transparent, given that list.

    Wow, so many great recs already.

    At first and from the title I was gonna recommend one of my more recent purchases Figue et Garcons which is a green, sweet, translucent fig. However might not be sweet enough for you.

    Other than that I second the truly great and versatile l'Instant that can be worn 24/7/365 imo.

    Five o'clock gingembre is also AMAZING and on my "to purchase" list right at the top somewhere.

    I have the feeling that the combo fresh, (green, maybe even floral) yet sweet is something the ladies might also be good at answering.


    I'l think some more and repost if something comes to mind.

    Thanks Buddy. I have a sample of Five o'clock gingembre, and i remember the ginger or cinnamon (whichever it was) was too much for me to like, decent enough, but maybe Tonka Imperiale is the thing i need and im just trying to fill a void only TI can.....oh well.
