    Default whats a good scent to buy that smells aromatic and fresh?

    Thanks for visiting my thread.

    I really like aromatics and fresh scents i.e. Cool water. I like aromatic and spice scents a little bit but not as much as other i.e. Dior Fahrenheit.

    I'm looking for a scent that is fresher than cool water. I know of cool water frozen. What scent would match my taste. I'm thinking of creed house. Also i want one that gets most compliments too. I have tried green Irish tweed and not interested. Aventus sounds good to me, but is it fresh and aromatic ?

    Perhaps Erolfa by Creed might be to your liking.

    Fresh and aromatic from the creed house? Royal Oud is worth a sample. Doesn't smell anything like cool water but it fits your other requirements. Also try out Millesime Imperial. It doesn't get much fresher than that.

    Also from Creed, possibly worth testing: Royal Water.

    Millesime Imperial would be a great choice. It smells like what you would imagine a luscious watermelon would smell like coupled with the scent of the ocean. It also has a golden creamy opulence about it like they have captured sunshine in a bottle.

    Himalaya by Creed is very fresh and aromatic. I think you'll like it.

    Silver Mountain Water with the icy tea vibe gives the freshness of the mountain tops.

    Creed seems to be dominating the lists at the moment.

    Another from that House that should garner some attention would be Green Irish Tweed as well. But perhaps it may be to similar to Cool Water for you.

    I had a sample of menthe fraiche by heeley, and I think it would match what you're looking for. Although I'd wait for the warmer weather to roll around again

    I'm a fan of fresh scents as well.

    Dressier: Tom Ford Grey Vetiver (classy and clean grass)
    Versatile: Creed Millesime Imperial (watermelon and sea salt)
    Citrusy: Hermés - Concentre d'Orange Verte (green, earthy orange)
    Fun and tropical: Creed Virgin Island Water (coconut, lime, mandarin, ginger and rum)
    Modern aromatic: Guerlain Homme and Guerlain Homme Intense (great rum, lime, mint vibe)

    Nice recommendations! I love and have every one of these.

    Another I would add:

    Un Parfum de Charmes et Feuilles by The Different Company

    This one is a very fresh, sharp, herbal aromatic scent - a very outdoorsy smell. One of my faves.

    'Aromatic' and 'fresh' are probably two of the most vague adjectives to describe a fragrance. The 3 listed below qualify but have distinctly different prrsonalities/ profiles:-

    Sisley Eau de Campagne
    Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Herba Fresca
    Lorenzo Villoresi Uomo

    By the way, have you smelled Boss Orange? Try to smell it. You might like it.

    Some good suggestions. I`d also get myself a nice little Pino Silvestre. This is aromatic and fresh as it gets (but NOT an aquatic) - and a classic that will get you the perfect mediterranean-gentleman-freshly-groomed-on-a-sunday-morning-feel. And it`s really really cheap.

    My SotD, Laura Tonatto's Albi: Intensly mossy citrus frag, or is it an intensely citric moss.. Retains its freshness and projection for hours.

    Try Aqua Fahrenheit. Still has the Fahrenheit DNA with an aquatic vibe.

    Good call. This definitely fits. Forgot about this one.
