    Default Spring/Summertime

    Because I always look forward to finding something new, and the fact I have many gourmands/sweet fragrances and these don't work particularly well in the summer, I was just wondering what you guys will start stocking up on when the time comes.
    I was thinking:
    Chanel Edition Blanche
    Dior homme for the spring
    And possibly a few more.
    Yes I know the winter heavies are just coming in full-swing. Just curious!

    You might want to consider fresh Vetiver based ones like Guerlain. As for citrus some of my favorites are Dior Eau Sauvage and Roberto Cavalli man.
    There's also Hermes Eau D'Orange Verte but that's short on longevity.
    Currently wearing: Zen for Men by Shiseido

    I have never smelled Acqua di Gio. Is it as good as it's cracked up to be?

    Really don't fancy splashing out on it if I don't like it. Plus I've heard it's got longevity problems which surprised me as I always thought it was a beast in that respect.

    I am of the school of thought that a fragrance can be worn year round. I enjoy all of my fragrances 12 months per year. I merely adjust the amount of sprays I use. Surprisingly, some of the scents that reviewers, BN members and others regard to be Fall/Winter only, smell fantastic on me during the warmer months. I find that I get an incredible amount of compliments wearing Tobacco Vanille, La Nuit de L'Homme, Jaipur Homme, Bois du Portugal, and many others during the warm weather. I enjoy summer fragrances also, but the scents seem to be so fleeting that I don't purchase as many as I would like to.
