    Default Recommendations for a spring/summer fragrance?

    ok so i'm kinda getting bored of my versace eau fraiche, but i still like the aquatic citrusy floral kinda scents. is there anything else you guys would recommend me trying? perhaps something not overly common like adg and stuff? longevity is a must, cos the versace only lasts like 5hrs max):
    many thanks!

    I personally am not fond of it. But you should try it for yourself - your results may vary. You may also want to try Bulgari Aqua.

    The issue with acqua / citrus colognes is the old story of longevity!
    Rossine - Rosssissimo Citrus Rose Floral
    Christian Dior - Eau de Sauvage
    are safe summer bets.

    Forgot to add. If you want freshness I have a couple of favorites that I will be rotating with this summer.
    Lorenzo Viloressi - Spezie (Fresh menthe) + Editions Frederic Malle 's Vetiver Extraordinaire (Green fresh cut grass).

    L'eau D'Issey by Issey Miyake is probably a good bet. Everyone on basenotes has heard of it, but I'm sure it's not in the realm of an AdG. A bit different, but worth checking out at the very least.

    AdP Colonia Assoluta. Not the greatest for longevity, but you'll be challenged to find any citrus-based frags which have it...and those really are the best candidates for summer especially.

    Grey Vetiver by Tom Ford? Fresh, clean, lasts fairly long.

    Easy on the wallet is the new A Lab On Fire - 'L'Anonyme ou OP-1475-A' for about $20.00--- a fine minimalist scent for spring/summer.

    I would not recommend it for spring / summer, nor would I really recommend it at all. It is a very complex and difficult scent. To me it felt like chaos, uncontrolled elements without rhyme or reason.
