    Default Which among these for a summer scent?

    So I got a few choices available,

    1. Bvlgari Aqva
    2. YSL Live Jazz
    3. 1 Million
    4. Cool Water
    5. Joop! Jump

    Those are the 5 I can think of right now, which one gives better longevity and is a better mature summer scent? Thanks!

    Bvlgari Aqva is definitely the best on the list. Live Jazz has a good opening but then it gets a little herbal for a hot summer day. I wouldn't wear the others in any season, but that is my personal choice. 1 Million would be a more than a tad overwhelming for Summer and Cool Water is played out.

    I guess Cool Water would be pretty decent in the Summer - but maybe the summer of twenty years ago,

    Aqva would definitely be my choice - but it may get cloying in the Summer so you may want to look at Aqva Marine, which is much lighter but still quite aromatic - or even the new toniq versions of both scents that are coming out this year.

    1. Bvlgari Aqva

    P.S. 1 Million is strictly a cold weather scent.

    From your list, Live Jazz is the only one worth purchasing.

    I would also recommend trying Aramis New West for Him.

    Thanks for the replies guys, I suddenly bumped onto Bvlgari pour Homme Extreme, so between these two, Aqua and Extreme, which one would be the better choice?

    Other than possibly Black (depending on your taste) Aqua is Bulgari's best scent. The Hommes are decent. Soir, Extreme and the original but Aqua is the better Summer scent. Just my opinion.

    At this point, I will not support any purchases of One Million. It's the first scent that I'm officially sick of smelling.

    +1 on everything.

    I'd go for Live Jazz and/or Cool Water.

    Live Jazz without question. Then Cool Water. I find Bvlgari Aqva too translucent. Joop! and 1 Million far too cloying. Given the price ranges and options you threw out, have you looked in to Acqua Di Gio?
