    Default Which is the best fresh scent out of these?

    I live in cali and as you know its hot a lot. I want to obtain some good fresh scents, but It's a tie between them. I am mostly concerned with longevity, then projection. I would use these for every days fragrances; signature scents.

    Versace - Man eau fraiche (I get over 6 hours with this.)

    Carolina Herrera - 212 men

    Nautica - Voyage (I already own this but I find the dry down a bit boring. I would like the opinion of others for this one.)

    I don't find the one very fresh. I'd pick the versace from this list.

    I guess what I meant to say was that i'm looking for a long lasting signature scent.

    Versace Man Eau Fraiche by Versace - Upon application, one is treated to a zesty, citrus scent, furnished by the lemon and bergamot, combining with a sweet fruitiness, supplied by the exotic carambola. This invigorating opening floats on an air of sweet woodiness from the rosewood, and imparts a spirited freshness. Transitioning to the middle, a concoction of dry, cedar leaves, faint licorice from the tarragon, spicy pepper and hint of sage eclipses the opening. This wonderful heart stews a bit, then segues to the comforting base. A light woodiness from the sycamore commingles with the sweet amber and musk, accented by the freshness from the saffron floral to provide a refreshing drydown. This spring and summer composition has average longevity and projection.

    I am also open for suggestions, although I do not have the funds to purchase any niche fragrances.

    Also, does the amount of sprays you put on affect longevity?

    For the money Voyage by far. Versace is close 2nd, but I find it a very faint scent.

    None on your list are worth a purchase, IMO. My alternative recommendation is New West for Him by Aramis. It retails for about $50 for a 100ml bottle.
    Current Top Favorites:
    1) Portrait of a Lady (EdP Frédéric Malle)
    2) Giorgio for Men vintage (Giorgio Beverly Hills)
    3) Dia Man vintage edt (Amouage)
    4) Les Nombres d'Or Vetyver (Mona di Orio) - tie
    4) Lalfeorosa (O'driù) - tie

    6) Anat Fritz Original Formula and Classical (Anat Fritz)
    7) Captain vintage (Molyneux)
    8) Tzora (Anat Fritz)

    None. Try Allure Homme Sport Cologne Sport, Creed Aventus, Lalique White. You can also try Azzaro Chrome Sport (to my nose it is similar to Versace Man Eau Fraiche, but a little bit critusy).

    Out of those the versace but I would recommend Live Jazz for a refreshing fragrance.

    Default Re: Which is the best fresh scent out of these?

    I live in California as well, and the best fresh scent is actually from this very state: Gendarme.

    This is the way women wished men smelled. Just showered and freshly pressed with a hint of clean leather. Some would call Gendarme "inoffensive" as a sort of backhanded compliment, but I prefer to think of it as universally appealing. I have received more compliments from women when I wear this than from anything else I have ever owned. You really can't miss with this.

    I alternate Gendarme with another fresh favorite: Mugler Cologne. Soap and starched shirt with a hint of barbershop.

    I don't have a frag suggestion, but I totally think "Hot Alot" would be a KILLER cologne name if you ever decide to go into business. LOL
