    Default Masculine cucumber/melon? CoolWater Game, Paris Hilton...

    After sniffing Paris Hilton for men and Cool Water Game, I have a craving for a fragrance with masculine cucumber or melon notes. Bond 9 Wall Street sounds interesting, but I read that the cucumber disappears quickly. Tried MI already, but the recent batches seem to lack the powerful top notes of melon saltiness from the older formulations.

    Was considering Cool Water Game to be a bit better in longevity/sillage and overall smell than Paris Hilton for men, based on a quick side by side sniff on skin. Could be wrong though.

    Any other suggestions?

    On my skin, the cucumber note in Wall Street is present 'til its dry down stage, which I find really nice as it blends with the ambergris note.

    Izod and Aramis Life are two fragrances that feature the cucumber note prominently. From my brief interaction with Izod, I would say it smells as cheap as it costs, while Aramis Life smells more high quality but features a leather note that some may not like. Give both a try and decide which one complements your skin more.

    Also on the very cheap side, in quality and cost, is Donald Trump for Men. It has a noticeable melon note. When I want this kind of fruity, melon vibe, I reach for Polo Black. The combination of notes and mango create a melon-like vibe. It is both long-lasting on my skin and has adequate sillage. A no brainer considering it' not that popular for a RL designer scent.

    +1 on Izod. That was going to be my choice. I have it & I used to have Paris Hilton for men & Izod is better IMHO. Polo Blue is also worth checking out for a more herbal smelling cucumber accord.

    New West for Her by Aramis. The best watermelon scent I've ever smelled. Easily worn by a man.
    "The beginning of freedom is the realization that you are not the "thinker." The moment you start watching the thinker, a higher level of consciousness becomes activated. You then begin to realize that there is a vast realm of intelligence beyond thought, that thought is only a tiny aspect of that intelligence. You also realize that all the things that truly matter - beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace - arise from beyond the mind.
