    You're not really giving us much to go on, Caesura.

    Can you list some fragrances of which you like the smell?
    What about some fragrances which you consider to have good longevity or projection?
    When you say summer fragrance, where are you located (a British summer will generally differ from a Floridian summer)?

    Joop! Jump
    Issey Miyake L'eau d'Issey
    Bvlgari Aqua PH
    Joop! Nightflight
    Versace PH
    Fahrenheit

    all nice scents with good projection and longevity suitable for summer.

    A summer fragrance that surprised me was Creed's Jardin D Amalfi. The longevity was awesome and the projection was good. The scent itself is awesome!
    Top ten

    1. Patou Pour Homme
    2. Patou Pour Homme Prive
    3. Portrait of a lady
    4. Jubilation XXV
    5. Cashmere Oud
    6. Tribute Attar
    7. Ambre 114
    8. Clive Christian No. 1
    9. Jardin d Amalfi
    10. Eau de Patou Pour Homme

    Anything by Montale, Anything by Bond no. 9, Anything by Thierry Mugler, Stay away from Penhaligon's and Creed, they may smell nice but they won't last 4hrs. (well...you may get 4hrs from GIT)

    Well, you should have written MOSTLY, because Penhaligons HAMMAM BOUQUET lasts at least 8 hours on my skin.

    Kouros is the scent for you.

    I think some of you missed the part where he said he wants to buy a fragrance for summer. I mean A*Men, 24 Gold, Costume National Homme are in no way summer scents. Or anything by Montale (except Fougere Marine and a few more). On-topic:

    Dior Homme Sport (2008 version)
    Issey L'Eau d'Issey
    Joop Nightflight
    Mugler Pure Shot (yes yes i know about the complaints but everyone around me gets excellent longevity)
    Moschino Friends
    Prada Infusion Homme
    Versace Eau Fraiche
    Guerlain Homme L'eau boisee
    Givenchy Play
    Estee Lauder Pleasures
    Cartier Declaration Cologne
    Chanel Edition Blanche
    Dior Aqua Fahrenheit (probably best performer from this list)
    Chanel Bleu
    Mont Blanc Legend
    C. Herrera CH Sport
    C. Herrera 212 Men

    Sorry to be vague. Im quite new to fragrances. Located in England.
    Still dont know a lot about fragrances and 'notes' but I am trying to learn.
    As for what i like, Im probably looking for more intense, and with a bit of a kick.
    I like fresh smelling scents too, more like Thierry Mugler A*men, however my girlfriend thought it smelt horrible.
    I have Givenchy Pi, which i absolutely love, and it seems to last along time. Only drawback is the projection. For the 1st 20 minutes i wear it i can smell it a bit, but after i cant unless i put my hand up to my nose.
    Thanks

    On my skin, I would never characterize Fahrenheit (I base this on 2 200ml bottles), A*Men Pure Malt or Mont Blanc Legend as having anything above average (at best) projection and longevity. On the other hand, I get 10 hours out of AdG Essenza, which fits the OP's criterion of a summer scent.

    Lots of BN are giving Montale Aoud's for summer - while these are w/o a doubt beasts with rgds to projection and longevity, u can wear maybe just 1 or 2 from this house in a hot summer...

    My summer picks:
    Moustache by Rochas - cheap and best value for the $, excellent longevity & projection as well...
    Terre de Hermes EDT
    Aqua Fahrenheit
    AdG (original or Essenza)
    Chanel Bleu
    Acqua di Parma (Colonia, Assoluta & Intensa)
    Declaration Cartier

    L'Eau de Issey Miyake
    Bleu de Chanel
    Prada Amber pour homme
    Esencia Loewe if you can find it.

    All affordable ones. Don't understand why some people's first instinct is always to suggest expensive, niche frags. There are some damn good designer frags out there which don't cost a fortune.
