    Default Strictly Spring

    I know there are a lot of people here who don't like to "catagorize" their fragrances, but I am so new to the game that buying a scent for every season forces me to have a variety until I know what I am looking for.

    So anyway onto the question. I am looking for strictly a spring time scent. I want something that makes you think oh thats spring time for sure, not oh I would use that through the summer too. I know most of what is used in the spring can be used in the summer as well, but it seems like all the topics I read here all have suggestions of scents that were made with summer in mind.

    I have ordered the following samples to try, feel free to give me more suggestions or tell me what ones that I have ordered will or won't be what I am looking for. THANKS!

    Green Irish Tweed- tried this already and is the front runner
    Roadster- tried this like it don't love it, but is cheaper than GIT
    212 Men
    Brooklyn
    Reflection Man
    Tea for Two- I own Gucci PH 2 having longevity issues or would just stick with this
    Allure Edition Blanche - I'm thinking this is more the summer thing I was talking about
    Philosykos
    Menthe Fraiche
    Guerlain Homme

    The sadly discontinued Creed Green Valley has always epitomized springtime for me.

    When I think of spring, I think of lavender, light fougeres, flowers, hay, and sunshine. I would go with:

    Patou pout homme Prive
    Arome 3
    Eau de Guerlain
    Eau de Patou
    Creed Fleur de The Rose Bulgare
    PdN Cologne Sologne
    Caldey Island Lavender
    Creed Jasmal

    Antonia by Puredistance is my favorite Spring scent. It just feels and smells like Spring.

    I'm glad to see someone else thinks so too. Riverside Drive will have to do in its place.

    Un Jardin en Mediterranee really reminds me of Spring too.

    On a side note I was VERY disappointed by Bleecker Street I was expecting a lot more.

    High Line is pretty neat if you want a fragrance that embodies spring.

    I'm realizing now that my spring lineup is pretty poor. My collection is really winter-focused!
