    Default Looking for some good bargain summer fragrances.

    I don't need the newest most expensive rarest fragrance. I am looking for a summer fragrance that is a good bargain. I am not looking for something cheap. I prefer something that is highly discounted. For example, I like Buglari Black and lolita Lempicka AM. Both can be had for $23-36 online (these I wouldn't consider summer fragrances though).

    So here are the criteria:
    -Spring/Summer fragrance
    -Can be worn everyday
    -Well liked and non offensive
    -Great bargain online
    -Easy to find
    -Not cheap but low priced


    Any Suggestions?

    Here is what I have that I use in the Spring and Summer:
    Creed MI (love)
    Creed SMI (love)
    Creed Erolfa (really like)
    Creed GIT (really like)
    Marc Jacobs (don't really like)
    Vera Wang (just ok)
    Thierry Mugler Cologne (really like)
    Tommy Bahama Brown bottle (ok. More of a evening summer frag for me)

    lacoste essential
    versace pour homme
    versace man eau fraiche

    all above are relatively cheap , safe, and easy to wear.

    Dior homme sport. Extremly nice smell (ignore the basenote review on that since they expected iris in a summer fragrance) it goes for around 50-60 on fragrancenet 3.40z unboxed with free shipping)

    Ditto on those 2. Best bang for the buck by far.

    I like DHS and have wanted to buy it but I wanted a really good bargain and 50-60 is more than I want to spend. I am looking more around the $30-40 mark

    What about YSL Live Jazz?

    Is that a summer/spring frag?

    Is it a dated smell?

    Penhaligon's is offering 50% off of Castile which happens to be one of my favorite warm weather frags!

    Another vote for Nautica Voyage. Also you should look into "Hei" from Alfred Sung, another good cheapie.

    It's nothing niche or exotic, but I would like to suggest Green Tea by Elizabeth Arden. Just grabbed a 3.3 oz bottle today for $15 and it's truly beautiful stuff, with real green tea in it. It's definitely something I'll be wearing this summer.

    Nautica Voyage and Diesel Green....and only if on clearance Chrome although I hate Chrome, it's the definition of Summer

    Nautica Voyage. Do not blind buy Live Jazz. It has a heavy cilantro note that makes me sick.

    Default Re: Looking for some good bargain summer fragrances.

    EA Green Tea is a good idea, indeed. Fleurs de Figuier is also good (one of the best fig scents imo) and can be found cheap online. Some Acqua Allegorias are also worth checking out: Herba Fresca, Mandarine Basilic, Pamplelune.

    Looks like Nautica Voyage has been recommended a few times.

    I see online it is really inexpensive but if I can test it locally, then I will.

    Any local places carry this juice?

    I thought I may have seen it at Ulta but I could be wrong.

    Does TJ Maxx carry this stuff cheaper than I can get it online?

    I personally can not stand Nautica Voyage. To each their own I guess.

    My personal favourite cheap summertime scents:

    Bellagio for Men is a very inexpensive scent in the L'Eau d'Issey vein, but much better and inoffensive, IMO. Bellagio edt can be acquired online at either Amazon or eBay for under $20 for a 100ml bottle (usually sold as a gift set with the aftershave balm that quite frankly is not very good).

    eBay usually also has great deals on small splash on travel bottles of Eau d'Orange Verte from Hermes. Ed'OV is a great Eau de Cologne that is just what the name says, oranges and greens. Simplistic, but beautiful concoction.
    Current Top Favorites:
    1) Portrait of a Lady original formula (EdP Frédéric Malle)
    2) Giorgio for Men vintage/V.I.P. for Men (Giorgio Beverly Hills)
    3) Dia Man vintage edt (Amouage)
    4)
    Anat Fritz Original Formula and Classical (Anat Fritz) - tie
    4) Lalfeorosa (O'driù) - tie

    6)
    Les Nombres d'Or Vetyver (Mona di Orio)
    7) Captain vintage (Molyneux)
    8) Tzora (Anat Fritz)
    9) Javanese Patchouli (Zegna) - tie
    9) Monsieur de Givenchy vintage (Givenchy) - tie
    9) Coeur de Vetiver Sacré (L'Artisan) - tie
    9) X for Men (Clive Christian) - tie
    9) Patou pour Homme Privé (Jean Patou) - tie

    Aqua Quorum

    + long lasting with just the right amount of projection
    + non-synthetic/chemical smelling (and does not contain "calone")
    + crisp/cool feeling
    + extremely affordable ($15 for a big bottle), yet doesn't smell cheap
    + inoffensive to the core
    + smells good
    + cannot overspray
    + doesn't go sour in the heat or from perspiration
