    Default Summer Fragrance Shoot out: which one do you prefer?

    I know it's winter here with Christmas, but which one do you prefer between Lanvin L'Homme Sport and Leau Bleue d'Issey
    Do you find any similarity between the two?
    If you're not a fan of aquatics but live where summers are HOT, what do you use?

    I own both and like both but I prefer the Lanvin and I personally find them to be different.

    I prefer Lanvin Sport, the frugal mans Allure Homme Sport.

    A friend of mine used to wear the Lanvin and I thought it smelled quite good. Have always meant to try this for myself.

    Deffinately Lanvin for me. Great longevity. Unique summer frag. Issey was a scrubber for me. I don't get the hype.
    My favorite and most complimented summer frag is Jil Sander Man. Lanvin sport a close second.

    I thought the post was for l'eau de issey. Don't like it. Bleu de issey is interesting and a unique frag but for summer I prefer Lanvin sport and Sander.

    I live in the Caribbean where its warm all year. A few suggestions:

    Creed Virgin Island Water (tropical lime/coconut/rum)
    L'Eau d'Issey (classic warm weather frag... Some categorize it as aquatic though)
    Bleu de Chanel (citrus woody aromatic, very versatile)
    Guerlain Homme (or the Intense version): Great 'Mojito' accord (lime, mint, rum)
    Creed Millesime Imperial (melon/marine vibe)
    Bergamotto Marino (like the name suggests, bergamot with a salty, amber background)
    Terre d'Hermes and Tom Ford's Grey Vetiver are great if your looking for a really sophisticated smelling frag

    Hope this helps...

    My summer "go to" perfumes for when it's just obnoxiously hot are:

    Tom Ford - Neroli Portofino
    Bond No. 9 - Eau de New York
    Creed - Milleaime Imperial
    Creed - Silver Mountain Water
    Francis Kurkdjian - Absolue pour le Matin

    And out of the 2 you mentioned OP I would do Lanvin.

    Had the Lanvin, sold it as it did get tiresome quick. I'd take Lanvin L'Homme over it or even Oxygene. Haven't tried the other one.

    Neither, original L'eau D'issey smacks both to the curb ....
