    Default A light chocolate scent - Pi or Very Irresisitble?

    Hey guys, I'm looking for a light chocolate scent that can be worn during the summer. I'm getting a bit tired of my aquatics, and my A*Men is wayyy to heavy for the summer. Would you recommend Pi or Very Irresistible? Which is more chocolatey?

    Also, any other light chocolate scents you guys would recommend? Thanks!

    Pi is not much chocolatey. It is more like vanilla + bit of almonds on drydown. Maybe try Rochas Man or Dior Homme that can be IMHO worn in summer when applied lightly.
    TOP 5 hot weather:

    1. Gucci Pour Homme II
    2. Lalique Encre Noire
    3. Creed Aventus
    4. Creed Millesime Imperial
    5. Azzaro Chrome Sport

    TOP 5 cold weather:

    1. L'Instant de Guerlain Pour Homme Extreme
    2. Chanel Coromandel
    3. Dior Homme Intense
    4. Dior Homme
    5. Byredo 1996

    I don't consider those two chocolatey scents. Try Givenchy Play

    Very Irresistible is chocholately but in a mocha kind of way. Nice fragrance, but I would't wear it in the summer. I would also suggest Givenchy Play, or possibly Play Intense (but may get cloying)
    The hunt for a Signature Fragrance is not an easy one! I see the light at the end of the tunnel!
    Want to buy! "Nothing?!, well that's a first."

    I also feel that Lay or Play Intense are better options.....Between Pi and Very Irresistible I feel that Very Irresistible is the one that Your looking for!!!

    I don't have any problem to use my VI in the summer. I have also a summer version but it was discontinnued (not a big loss) with an extra hint of fresh mint and a lighter scent of chocolate, this one is like a mix between the original VI and the VI Fresh Attitude. This last version is almost completely stripped from any chocolate scent, it is almost like a dirty peppermint.

    I can't feel any note of chocolate from Pi

    I don't see Pi as chocolatey. IMO, Very Irresisitible is maybe about the same as A*Men in terms of it being cloying in summer, although I haven't put these to the test in summer. It just seems like a logical thing based on their smell. I think Rochas Man would be easier to tolerate in summer than the two you mentioned. Lacoste Elegance is another cheap chocolate frag worth trying out. Really nice spicy raspberry chocolate smell.

    In Europe we have a somehow famous brand named 'Mon Cheri', translated to English something like 'My Darling'. They have a single product: chocolate candy, actually it is an alcohol drenched whole cherry covered with dark sweet chocolate. Consequently they don't sell during summer. Comment: it doesn't fit the season! This attitude gains respect.

    edit: in the US Ferrero sells a quite different product under this name - I refer to the cherry variant:

    Guerlain Cuir Beluga or Iris Ganache (kind of expensive for liberal summer use though...).

    Even more expensive but stunning: Cartier Les Heures (VII) L'Heure Défendue. Awesome rendition of dark cocoa.

    Try Chocolovers by Aqualina, same people that made pink sugar for women. Smells like chocolate chip cookies. It also smells exactly like Montale Chocolate Greedy, but for only $15 dollars.

    Between Pi and V.I. i'd recommend V.I. for summer.

    Pi could get cloying, and it has no chocolate.

    That said, I think Pi is one of the great designer frags.

    Maybe try Hanae Mori HM. Kinda begins as a sweet lemon pastry and drys down to a vanilla and cocoa/chocolate base. It's versatile enough to work in cold or warm weather.

    bulgari blu notte pour femme is chocolatey and its quite light.

    Could Animale Animale be worn better in the summer than Pi & VI? I think it should wear somewhat well since it has a nice bergamot/pineapple accord in the top notes, but it too can be verging on cloying in the heat. The only gourmands I have ever successfully worn in the heat are Lolita Lempicka Au Masculin (even this one can be tough) and Very Irresistible Fresh Attitude. Summer just wants meant for these kinds of orientals.
    Summer Rotation:

    Versace Pour Homme by Versace
    Cool Water Game by Davidoff
    Tom Ford Grey Vetiver
    H.M. by Hanae Mori
    Vettiveru by Commes Des Garçons
    Riverside Drive by Bond No. 9
    Soon to include "Ab Spirit Silver"

    If smelling good was a crime, I'd be serving a lifetime sentence....

    Animale Animale is a better version of A Men and almost as strong as. Definitely is much more strong than VI or Pi.

    I was going to suggest Animale Animale too. A lighter version of A*Men without the tar note. I agree that it would work better than the other ones.
