Thread: A summer scent

  1. #1

    Default A summer scent

    Hello everyone

    I have visited this site many times but never posted,until now.

    I am visiting Mexico in the summer and would like to take along with me 2 hot climate scents.

    My default fragrance is Czech and speake, Neroli,No 88 and Oxford and Cambridge (which i should never like but do).
    Also I love Aqua de Parma.

    I could of course take along Neroli and ADP,but would like to try something new.

    Your suggestions gentlemen would be very welcome,and i very much look forward to reading them.

    Many thanks

    Welcome!

    Yours seem very good choices, though I don't think they are very long lasting - especially in Mexico's heat.

    An alternative could be a vetiver. They are fresh but last longer. Indeed, supposedly Guerlain created Vetiver back then with the Mexican market in mind. An expensive example of a vetiver is Chanel Sycomore.

    Thanks for all the suggestions.If i can get myself out and to work today i will pop into Liberty and have a splash first of Virgin white water.I have worn Creed before Green Irish tweed i believe.
    I will let you know what i think but alas i will not be able to break the review down into the intricacies many are able to do on this site,my nose wont allow.

    Thanks

    I find Guerlain Vetiver to really bloom in hot weather and warm skin. On the citrus side, Eau de Rochas pour Homme is a great option as well.

    Don't wear aquatics. Be different. Wear Eau D'Hadrien EDP. It is perfect for the summer.

    One more vote for TDC Sel de Vetiver.

    That might be Habit Rouge, one of their best sellers for men. However, HR in warm weather tend to be a bit stuffy, at least on my skin. A good option might be the new Habit Rouge L'Eau, which is the regular HR with leather tuned down a little and a brighter lemon note. Still powdery, but probably more summery

    Went into Liberty today and had a spray of Creed Virgin Island Water,must say it didnt really do it for me,its smells very Creed if that makes sense,thanks to those that took the trouble to recommend it,however i shall try to sample some of the others.

    Thanks

    I have to admit that A Vetiver was a very good suggestion. Mexicans might like it.
