    Sycomore by Chanel - Upon application, one is treated to a stimulating wave of hesperidic notes, with their inherent tangerine, orange, bergamot and lemon flavors; aldehydes heigthen their sparkliness. Riding the crest of this citrus swell, haitian vetiver imparts its green and smoky facets. A faint anise bobs about. Carried to the waiting middle, fruity and shyly spicy pink pepper showers the airy and bitter vetiver, and is married with the fresh and clean woodiness of cypress, while a hint of sensual jasmine and haunting frankincense waft about. Transitioning to the welcoming base, creamy sandlewood, dry cedar and pine needle-like juniper encase the rooty vetiver, as delicate ylang-ylang lightly mists the lush and woodsy melange adding a trace of powder, and orris masterfully impregnates the concoction with its wet, earthy and slight violet-like facets. With a feebly sour and warm musk flickering, and a sweet and balsamic styrax adding a kiss of vanilla, an exquisite drydown ensues. This elegant composition befits a gentleman. A tasteful and refined, all-season fragrance, it has average projection and good longevity.

    I'll second M7 fresh but may have to also add Rive Gauge and YSL pour homme Haute Concentration. Annick Goutal Eau d'hadrien is very good also. The latter two if you like a Zesty citrus smell. Rive Gauge if you like a fresh shaved out of the barbershop smell. To me No88 by C&S and Cooper Square by Bond No9 have a similar smell but at a higher price. However, can't go wrong with Channel Allure Homme Sport, Pour Homme, Platinum Egoiste or even Cartier's Roadster. These are just a few that come to mind.
    Love someone today and it will come back to you ten folds

    Concentre d'Orange Verte - orange and orange tree. Will need to reapply during the day.
    Bigarade Concentre - similar to above but less orange and a bit floral.
    Terre de Bois - lemony and woody.

    I highly recommend Creed Original Vetiver. Just a fabulous balance of ingredients. So appropriate for summer.
    Cheers,

    +1 Dior Eau Sauvage

    Malizia Vetyver is an excellent vetiver with a bright citrus opening you may enjoy.

    I also very much enjoy Yves Rocher's Comme Un Evidence Green.

    You may also want to try Dsquared2's He Wood Ocean Wet Wood.

    Hey Scentdog. Where do you pick up frags in ATL. No stores in Savannah have anything beyond commercial offerings. I will be in ATL Saturday and would like to get a couple items.

    I would recommend a nice and clean vetiver...Tom Ford Grey Vetiver, CDG Vettiveru and if you want a strong one, you might go with the Grandaddy, Vetiver Guerlain.

    Since I find citrus based summer scents far too common and mostly boring, Pour Un Homme de Caron is a classic choice. I personally agree with Dollars&Scents concerning Sycomore. It is something I wear all year and would not hesitate to consider it fresh in a unique way.

    Best places to go and try a good variety is Sak's fifth Avenue and Neiman marcus at Lenox. They are very close by so you could go to both places on the same trip.
    Saks has Creed, Bond No9, Tom Ford, by Kilian, Clive Christian, Jo Malone, and many of the non-Niche.
    Neimam Marcus has Creed, Tom Ford, Clive Christian, Jo Malone, Acqua di Parma, Atelier, ....Cleef, and many other non-Niche. Once at Lenox mall, you can always go to L'Occitan and try some of those there also.
    I hope this helps. I have not been there in a while and things may have been added or taken away but either way these are the best two places in ATL

    Here's some thoughts from a 60 year old man. I have to ask myself, why would I want to smell like all the other 50 year old men via, Guerlain Vetiver, Chanel Sycomore, Creed Original Vetiver etc.......

    Us old farts don't want to smell like the typical geriatrics - think a little more up to date

    Xerjoff 1861
    Vetiver Extrait by Roja Dove
    Xerjoff Kobe

    I'm assuming you have a little more disposable income than a 20 year. It's time to be classy.
