    Default Top Designer Spring/Summer scents for 2012

    I know, it is a bit early for this but I have recently got back into fragrances (I have been trying to use up my decently sized collection for the past 2 years) purchased a few fall/winter fragrances and I am getting ready to purchase some fragrances for the spring/summer.

    I have rediscovered designer fragrances. I have been using niche fragrances in the summer and spring and have really been focused on niche for about 5 years. I haven't even messed with designer besides the occasional test at the stores and me quickly disliking them because they are designer.

    So far I really like
    Dior Homme Sport
    Chanel Allure Blanche Edition

    I am on the fence about
    Versace Eau Fraiche

    Any others?
    Allure Homme Sport maybe?

    L'Eau par Kenzo pour Homme by Kenzo - Initially, one is treated to a biting and sparkling blast of yuzo, somewhere between a grapefruit and a mandarin orange, with its lemon-like tangy and floral aspects. This sharp and bright citrus slowly pairs with ho leaf, which tinges the pseudo-lemon with its spicy and sweet, floral and rosewood overtones, yielding an almost lemon, furniture polish accord, morphing the stark citrus into a luscious smoothness. The refreshing, watery middle beckons. Here, in the heart, the pseudo-lemon is immersed in a bath of lotus flower, with its lovely, water lily greenness with a hint of mint, sharp and fresh ozone notes, as well as refreshful aquatic notes, with its faint, marine and mint accord, and steeps into a soothing lemonade. Pleasant white musk usurps the cool blend into the awaiting base, imparting its sweet and floral facets, and its cohort, green pepper, adds a kiss of earthiness before meandering to the light and airy drydown. A wonderful fragrance to be turned to in the heat of the summer, this fresh and crisp composition is a vibrant, green, lemony and woody scent, and has average longevity and projection. In the sweaty dog days of the summer, you need this!

    Can't find the Kenzo power cologne just the EDT. Even when I search Kenzos site thy don't have anything except after shave lotion listed. I already have Issey Miyake and Green Irish Tweed coming , but looking for something else for spring/summer. The Allure Homme sport doesn't sit well on my skin. Looking of something Fruit/spicy with good longevity. Suggestions???

    I am topping this because I hope to find that one great scent for spring/summer this year. Hopes include decent silage and great longevity. I would like some nice fruit and/or floral component but am hoping to find fruits other than bergamot or citrus, but blood orange would be an exception to that. Not a huge fan of aquatics, but an aquatic element would be OK.

    Allure Homme Sport is an OUTSTANDING scent. One of my favorites!

    It smells nothing like the Allure or Allure Edition Blanch. I wear Edition Blanch and Sport fairly frequently in warm weather. :-)
