    Default Spring: I need some advice for men's frags

    So, I started fragrance collecting back in the late summer (late August), so naturally my collection has been loaded toward fall and winter, and I feel like I am lacking fragrances for the Spring. My wardrobe is up to date if it helps, but I was wondering what Spring-time fragrances you would recommend for me (can be niche or designer)?

    Thanks for the help. I put this in MFD instead of Just Starting since I'm not entirely new, and I thought it may spark a conversation about Spring, which is right around the corner.

    Thanks for the notes everyone. I have TdH and GIT already, as well as Aventus. I may pick up Original Vetiver at some point since I know I like that. And Jack, while I like Castile, I'm set with Neroli Portofino for my fix of that genre .

    Still need to get myself a sample of JdA though.

    Wear whatever you wear in winter, just wear less of it as summer heat will increase its projection dramatically.

    I'd recommend Virgin Island Water but I'll likely wear that tomorrow as we have another foot of snow coming and I need to think warm thoughts!

    Gucci Pour Homme II is a great spring frag
    Creed Original Vetiver, which you've mentioned is great or spring & summer as well.

    Bleu de Chanel

    GIT
    Tom Ford Grey Vetiver
    Original Vetiver
    Gucci Pour Homme II
    Chanel Edition Blanche
    CURRENT TOP 5

    1. Dior Homme Intense

    3. Tom Ford Extreme
    4. Gucci Pour Homme II
    5. Terre d'Hermes

    Okay friend, I took a gander at your excellent wardrobe. I like brightness in the Spring, fragrances that have a radiant quality to them. Neroli Portofino, to me, is just great for springtime. On the other hand, Aventus is an example of a bright, but heavy fragrance better suited for summer, if that makes sense.

    Might I recommend:
    Diptyque Philosykos (a very Springtime scent)
    Diptyque Vetyver (just awesome, a bright vetiver with a glorious grapefruit note)
    Dior Vetiver (lemon vetiver, also bright and pleasant)
    Penhaligon's LP No. 9
    Monsieur de Givenchy (what puts this one above other citruses is that it lacks heaviness)
    Dolce and Gabbana Light Blue for Women (excellent peachy citrus- ignore people who say it's synthetic)
    Aqua di Parma Colonia
