    AHS and Versace PH are quite similar, get one or the other, not both.

    Nautica voyage. I used to like chrome azzaro but suddenly it became very sharp to my nose. I would grab either AHS or DHS with a cheaper one. I sampled Gucci guilty today and didn't get the fruity vibe from it. I got more of a woods/spice with a fruit in the background. Not bad but just not my style. To each his own tho. Test everything. Go to macys Nordstrom etc. and test some out.

    Or I might get Perry Ellis 360 Red on the side. Don't know yet.

    I've been looking into this too. (We are having blistering 100F+ heat here). So far, I've found Azzaro Chrome, Cool Water and Eau de Rochas work well for fragrance and longevity. All can be found for well under $100.

    Recommended to me, but not yet tried, were Monsieur Balmain, Terre d'Hermes, and Caron 3rd Man. Creed MI was a strong recommendation, but is probably too expensive.

    Getting some decants online is a good way to check these scents on yourself and decide what suits you.

    Dior Homme Sport & Creed VIW saw a lot of action last summer, I predict they'll see a lot of action again this coming summer. Given the option, I'd roll with vintage DHS, but both are pretty nice.

    Dior Homme Sport is the perfect summer fragrance. I'm traveling to Brazil next month, where it is now summer and extremely hot. I will be taking one bottle of DHS and rock it daily.

    I recommend to anyone traveling to a warm climate (especially tropical) to take a nice vetiver scent with them...

    Guerlain Vetiver - the latest version is wonderful and clean, yet deep and very green; while the previous (ribbed/frosted bottle) has more tobacco in the base and louder citrus on top

    Another bottle to consider taking is a nice, fragrant citrus with good longevity - Monsieur Balmain, Eau de Rochas Pour Homme

    Finally - a great scent that can be casual or dressed up - Original Dolce & Gabanna Pour Homme (Made in Italy)

    Bon Voyage and safe travels to all...cheers!

    My vote is for Dior Homme Sport!

    The new formulation. I have the older one, and it just doesn't seem as refined
    As the current one. The new one has a great ginger note, with some extra iris in there. Amazing stuff for hot weather.

    Great longevity. Average silage.

    Have to agree with the Hippo on Gucci Guilty.
    The only Gucci I can tolerate is Forever Now....and it's surprisingly good.
    Cannot understand all the love for Dior Sport.
    It is very generic and difficult to pick out in a crowd.....and the longevity is abysmal.
    If I get 2 hours I am doing well with this one.

    Versace Pour Homme.

    I love Edition Blanche by Chanel in the summer.
    Although I suspect the OP has long since made a decision. :-)
