    Default Is spring in the air? Please help me find a spring fragrance.

    Hello all

    I have been wintering with Bvlgari Black, L' Anarchiste, and more recently some MJ Bang! I really like all three in different ways. But somehow these scents all feel dark and dreary as the days seem to get longer. Can anybody offer a tip for something that says it's springtime? I'm a value conscious shopper and I think my limit is $50 for 100ml. I'm hoping for something fresh and clean without going fully aquatic.

    Best,
    Chanzy

    Blvgari Man

    I love it's clean, softness and it's natural simplicity. It smells like the inside of a freshly, snapped, green twig.

    New West/Aramis
    Z/Zegna
    Lanvin l'homme (again, Morillas)
    Lanviin l'homme Sport

    Some good suggestions so far....

    I will add:

    YSL Rive Gauche
    YSL Body Kouros
    Chanel Allure Homme
    Chanel Bleu
    Cartier Pasha
    Dior 32
    Davidoff Cool Water
    Carolia Herrera CH Chic
    Armani Code
    Burberry The Beat
    Prada Infusion D'Homme

    Neither of these are summer scents per se, but well suited for spring and fall IMHO

    Story by Paul Smith - One is initially treated to a blast of a lemony and slightly peppery, citric accord. The herbal and faintly woody aspects of ivy leaf intrude upon and commingle with this sparkling citrus, providing a crisp, leafy opening, which saunters to the awaiting middle. Here, in the heart, a floral potion from the sweet jasmine and cardboard-like mustiness of rose leaf tempers the jarring opening, and transitions to the welcoming base. An altering melange of grass-like and clean vetiver, white musk, with its laundered-linen illusion, as well as a rugged, mineral amber coalesce. With an errant metallic and faintly minty something fluttering about, the dry woodiness of cedar squires the cleanly mix to a refreshing drydown. This light and fresh composition has good projection and longevity, and will bloom in the spring, summer and fall. A very nice fragrance which can be had rather inexpensively.

    A few of my favorites for spring include: Dior Fahrenheit 32, Cartier Roadster, YSL Live Jazz, & Versace Man (original, not eau Fraiche).

    I think the wonderful orange blossom, vanilla, & vetiver combo in Fahrenheit 32 is almost the perfect spring scent for me.
