    Default Which of these is a better date scent for a hot day?

    Hi,
    My humble collection includes - Gucci Pour Homme 2, Acqua di Gio, Terre d'Hermes, Dior Homme Sport, and Le Male.
    As the topic says, what do you recommend? Basically, what would my someone special love smelling on me?
    (Le Male is pretty much out of the question for a hot day)

    Thanks.

    I vote Dior Homme Sport because it works in the heat, its pleasant and somewhat unique (unlike ADG which they'll likely have smelt on others).

    I don't like any of those. I have to be honest.

    I don't like any of those. I have to be honest. I never tried the sport version of Dior, but that may be a viable choice.

    Read the OP's question, he doesn't have those.

    Tbh, I would ask your loved one which they like and not the guys on here.

    Dior Homme Sport. Terre has gotten me great compliments from older women, but younger, my age, they don't like it.

    I agree with you. I just wanted others' opinions on it also.

    LOL!!

    I like how you recommend 2 fragrances that don't even belong to his collection. I do agree with you, however. Just lol.

    DHS for over 30 Celsius days is the way to go. AdG if you don't mind its popularity and omnipresence.

    From your list the tried and tested and well liked by the masses, the one and only Acqua Di Gio!

    I must say I don't love your collection too much. But I think I would choose the Gucci.

    I know. Here, not many people are aware of it, though. Only a fraction of the population uses fragrances, for that matter.

    DHS. The 2012 one..

    Lasts and lasts and lasts. It's no sports scent, it smells classy and works so well in the heat.

    Default Re: Which of these is a better date scent for a hot day?

    from the ones you listed, I would rank them in this order for that occasion:

    1. Dior Homme Sport
    2. Acqua di Gio
    3. Gucci Pour Homme 2
    4. Terre d'Hermes
    5. --NOTHING--
    6. Le Male.

    Don't be confused, DHS is the answer. If you're not feeling it at the moment go with AdG.

    DHS is probably the best choice. Otherwise, go with Acqua di Gio. Either way, you will be pleasantly surprised.

    +1. I've worn it since it's release (not as frequently in recent years)...but still have a final couple wearings left in my bottle. You cannot go wrong with it.

    DHS is also a good bet...

    Dior Homme Sport is probably the best bet for the heat. Acqua Di Gio would be the next-best. Either way, as long as you don't over-apply, you can't go wrong.

    Thank you all. That's really helpful.

    Default Re: Which of these is a better date scent for a hot day?

    In my belated opinion, any fragrance among Gucci Pour Homme 2, Acqua di Gio, Terre d'Hermes or Dior Homme Sport would do. But if only one had to be chose, Gucci pour Homme 2 would be just perfect - a light, almost sparkling and translucent, yet not just extremely refreshing but also understated classy fragrance with a tea note.

    i totally agree TDH does not work with young women. on the other hand ADG works perfect. i vote for ADG, in summer ADG really shines.
