    Default Looking for the Perfect Summer 2013 Fragrance

    Hello I am looking for the Summer 2013 fragrance. It is very hot in here in TX and I want to find something refreshing but NOT really citrusy. Something with flowers and unique- please suggest something!

    You've already got some suggestions, but I would go with:

    Millesime Imperial
    Original Vetiver (there is some citrus but it is very carefully blended)
    Ralph Lauren Safari
    Terre d' Hermes

    Do you think DHI suits for summer? I find it to be a little bit too much thick to be weared at warm weather. Maybe summer nights if applied slightly.

    I vote for Aventus and Francis Kurkdjian Amyris Homme.

    Jasmine and rose would be nice but I have not found any good refreshing rose scents.
    I was thinking about hyacinths, tuberose, lilies, geranium and violets. Iris sounds good too. Also like minty accords.

    I have had Gucci II and Kenzo. Issey is too generic. Melissime is too rich.

    Kenzo power is intersting suggestion- I was thinking about it for a good while- but heard contradicting opinions.
    GF Bergamotto Marino is already in my collection- love this scent.

    As I mentioned in other thread. Andy Tauer's Vetiver Dance is the most refreshing scent I've ever came across. Jade by Olivier Durbano is superb also. Luckyscent description: Durbano’s olfactory rendering of the stone is one of the most beautifully realized green-woody scents we’ve ever had the pleasure of wearing…a whiff of spiced mint tea opens Jade, while the rich and aromatic notes of vetiver, moss, patchouli and musk create a deliriously deep but surprisingly green fragrance. Jade the ornamental stone might be cold, but Jade the perfume is warm, deep and earthy…a gorgeous salute to the soul of the stone versus its hard exterior.




    Jade Notes
    green tea, star anise, mint, cardamom, iris, jasmine, Chinese cinnamon, amber, patchouli, vetiver, moss, musk, immortale, mathé
