    +1 for Aqua Quorum, it is a very good frag for the price.
    Also agree with Lacoste essential which is very crisp and refreshing.
    Cerruti 1881 would be worth a try too.

    Two not mentioned, that are much better than their prices would have you think:

    Gianfranco Ferre Bergamotto Marino

    If only hermes was cheap, I'd get it myself... the best cheap one I found was only a few dollars, it's called Silver. I forget the name of the brand, it's a middle eastern one. Is the brand called Al Rehab? Anyway I bought it off ebay, I wear it lots.

    Havana is not dense in the heat (like an amber/vanilla type can get). However, it is very spicy so you don't want to spray too much. Havana does smell even better with heat, it comes alive. Definitely check it out. It is a year round fragrance. But you can't be afraid of a little "spice".

    I tried Benetton Verde Men yesterday and thought it was a solid office/school frag for summer, and it's really inexpensive.

    I tried some of the suggestions and Nautica Voyage may be a winner but I do find it a bit feminine to my nose for some reason.

    SO

    I was thinking.

    What about Body Sprays (I never used any but I do like the way some Axe body washes smell)?

    How about anything from Bath and Body Works (I see they have a relatively new line. The old line made me sneeze like I was wearing cheap cologne for some reason)?

    If I could find something that smells good and is inexpensive, that would be great.

    Totally agree with Havana (being a good summer fragrance, that is). Two others: Chrome and Kenzo pour homme

    I totally agree with Live Jazz as a recommendation. It never gets old to me and it can be had a reasonable price online.

    A couple recommendations for spring and summer cheapies - simply because I ran onto these a couple days ago are from Gorilla Perfume:

    Dirty Perfume, Gorilla Perfume - mint, green herbs and total freshness. Lush sells this as solid perfume stick, perfume, or body spray. It is recommended for use when you don't have time to take a shower and it works great as spring refresher scent. LOL!

    Breath of God, Gorilla Perfume - Also comes as solid perfume stick, or perfume. This is a fantastic vetiver fragrance that is quickened with smokey orange, ylang-ylang, sandalwood, orris. Once I was walking past a large courtyard of meditating monks at a temple in Bali - the incense, the aura and energy of the place smelled exactly like this. Breath of God is an excellent name.

    These can be ordered online from Lush, Gorilla Perfume or from any Lush retail store.

    I gotta say some frags even though they are heavy are actually better in the summer, and Aramis Havana is a perfect example. I think Kouros is the ultimate summer frag though. I would go with Kenzo PH, Chrome, Havana, and Kouros. I just recently bought Aqua Quorum, but it hasn't arrived yet so I can't reccomend it yet.

    +1 for Nautica Voyage. Very long lasting too. Also has a good nose behind it, if you care (Maurice Rocel)

    I know what you mean. I wear Terred'hermes in year round but like it in the summer but I actually think it is more of a Fall/Winter scent.

    For a few months I have been dying to buy another bottle of Fahreheit. In thinking about getting a new Spring/Summer Scent, I just thinking about scents that would typically be classied as such.
    I have always associated Fahrenheit with the Summer.

    Maybe that will be my next purchase.
