    Default Best "Blue" fragrance for Men!

    i really think that the "Blue" genre is a little under-appreciated here on BN. so i decided to make this little thread for it, i always liked "blue" frags even so they most likely smell generic. I'll make a poll on this one including the ones that have the name "Blue" in them , but the thread here isn't about the name it is about the genre in general. I'll be happy to hear your opinion.

    I'll second Hednic on Jacomo de Jacomo Deep Blue. I blind bought this one recently at Ross for $12.99 and am absolutely loving it. It's one of my favorite blind buys ever. It starts out with a great violet leaf note with a touch of lavender and dries down to a really nice musk/leather/woody base that is perfect for fall. It's not really aquatic like a lot of blue scents, so I think the name is a bit off, but I do highly recommend this one. (To me, it's more green than blue in it's feel).

    How could Bleu de Chanel not be listed in a poll of "Blue" fragrances??? Astonishing.

    Even if Chanel Bleu had been on the list, I'd have still voted for Bulgaril Blu, one of my all time loves. Clean, gingery scent that's a great "default" cologne for almost any occasion.
    Current Top Five:

    1. Creed Green Irish Tweed
    2. Tom Ford Neroli Portofino
    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
    4. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
    5. Creed Original Vetiver

    I also would 2nd VPH only if it had better performance and agree on BdC as an over all frag! (Ladies seem to agree.)

    Has anyone actually smelt CK Free Blue?

    I've never seen it in a UK store. Could it be worse than the original Free?

    My first thought, too! Bleu de Chanel.

    Also, Etiquette Bleu by Parfums D'Orsay. Fake marketing story (created in 1908 and not 1830, and not based on a made-up love story) but a nice musk/citrus.

    Looking at your poll, and not overthinking it, I'll go with Into the Blue. I picked up a tester, with cap, in a plain white box at my local perfume store for dirt cheap and didn't wear or test it for a while because I assumed it'd be nothing special, but now I've worn it I'm starting to appreciate it. Very fresh, cooling and a little sweet but without that obnoxious 'sea,' smell which always strikes my nose as being like a heavily chlorinated pool.

    The juice itself is blue.

    The OP said blue "genre" which I took to mean aquatics, which are typically sold in blue bottles, have blue juice (as with Azzaro chrome), or have the word "blue" in the title but not always. Just having the word "blue" in the title, alone, is absolutely meaningless. For example, there is Pierre Cardin Bleu Marine, which is an old-fashioned spicey oriental that has nothing to do with the modern blue genre.

    Out of these I vote for Downy in the original blue bottle or Fabreze. :-)

    Most Bleu fragrances I run into smell like detergent or dryer sheets but I admit I have not sampled the higher end stuff except Chanel, and I disliked that one too.
