    Default looking for a light fresh scent that will last

    I am currently on my last few drops of Lacoste Essential and really love the smell of DG light blue but both have longevity issues. The Lacoste is ok but I have to put 4-6 sprays on to make it noticeable. I have also used Issey and that too was just a tad too weak for my tastes.

    I also have some perry ellis 360 red because I was told it was very similar to Aqua di gio but it is just too strong for my liking.

    Let me know what you would suggest.

    L'eau D'Issey was too weak?

    Must have been a fake. Issey is monster strong.

    Might want to try C.O. Bigelow's White Elixir! Good longevity for me!

    Bigelow also have an EDP called Lemon and Orange Blossom. Like a cologne but lasts longer.

    +1 on YSL Live Jazz. Also, I'm surprised you didn't like 360 Red. It's one of my favorites. It's almost like an ADG Intense. It is definitely stronger than ADG, and if you don't like ADG's fruity/floral, somewhat unisex smell, I can see where 360 Red might be too loud.

    Also, I wouldn't overlook Cool Water or Green Irish Tweed if you don't mind paying more. Both last very well. You might also try Mugler Cologne if you like a green soapy clean smell at all.

    I came in to this thread to recommend Issey, then I was like hmmmm ok.

    Boosh's list is accurate though.

    I'll add Versace man au Fraiche, and Le Labo Bergamot 22.

    You should probably skip fresh scents and go straight to Musc Ravaguer then.

    Nah, but in all seriousness, try rubbing in some quality body lotion before you spray. I don't have the patience to do it on my whole body, just spray locations and it increases longevity quite a bit.

    Guerlain Homme L'eau is quite good as a long lasting fresh scent but some don't like the grapefruit note.

    Frapin's L'humaniste is also great, but only if you like a boozy vibe with the freshness (I find gin and tonic pretty "fresh" though)
    Current favorites_____Black Tourmaline_____Gucci Pour Homme II_____Memoir Man_____Tuscan Leather______Montale Aoud and Pine_____Sel Marin_____Invasion Barbare_____Tonka Imperial____Dior Homme Intense_____L'Humaniste____Santal 33_____Bois d'Argent_____Nio_____MFK Oud_____Lumiere Noire_____Bois d'Encens_____Cuir Ottoman

    I do like ADG and since the 360 red was a fraction of the cost I gave it a try but thought is was very strong! It game me a headache with only two sprays on my neck.

    Thank you all for your input!

    Mugler's cologne is probably the best soapy fresh, light, and long lasting scent I've tried. It's also relatively inexpensive and totally inoffensive.
