    If it doesn't last or with poor versatility, I wont like it.

    My current pick will be (according to longevity)

    Rive Gauche - 10hours - x-factor

    Terre D'Hermes Parfum - 9.5 hours - I love orange

    Dior homme intense - 9.5 hours - secret weapon

    Dreamer - 8 hours - uplifting powerhouse

    D&G pour Homme - 7 hours - spray and go

    Among others:

    - Guerlain: Homme L'Eau Boisee
    (a lime take on Terre d'Hermes but very fresh and pleasant as well lasting!)
    - Declaration: The Cologne version edt (It's imo a very natural smelling extremely fresh fragrance with an outstanding fresh ginger note)
    - Revillon R (A fresh masterpiece by Maurice Roucel)
    - DelRae: Eau Illuminee (loud, fresh, lasting all day, very original and more for men imo)
    - Azzaro: Chrome: The perfect spray and go fragrance for hotter weather. Synthetic but I love it.

    I find it funny when you say suffocate. Do you apply 10 sprays? Where you go to?

    Summer is all about Citrus for me. I'm going to cheat (a bit), and give you five categories! You can then take your pick.

    Aromatic/Mossy Citrus:
    Armani Eau Pour Homme, Eau de Guerlain

    Gingery Citrus:
    Declaration Cologne, Dior Homme Sport

    Minty Citrus:
    Guerlain Homme L'Eau, Live Jazz

    Soapy Citrus:
    Mugler Cologne, Dior Homme Cologne 2013

    Aquatic Citrus:
    L'Eau D'Issey Pour Homme, Versace Eau Fraiche

    Then there are some hybrids.

    Bergamotto Marino is a Soapy Aquatic Citrus

    Armani Code Sport is a Minty Aquatic Citrus

    Kenzo Homme Sport is a Minty Gingery Aquatic Citrus (!)

    Cannot agree more! Stuff is divine! It is indeed underrated but I guess that is because it is not that easily available everywhere! (in the stores all is mainly about Declaration original and all the other flankers and not this one!) Never saw it here in a store nor in Germany or Belgium for instance. I just bought online 2x 100ml, that good it is!

    In no particular order:

    - Guerlain Homme (Intense): perfect summer night scent... Lime, mint, rum and vetiver
    - Dior Homme Sport (I prefer the 2012 version... Classy, fresh and versatile)
    - Bleu de Chanel (I don't think there is a more versatile fragrance)
    - Tom Ford Grey Vetiver (Spring/Summer business scent... Class class class)
    - Creed Virgin Island Water (best 'resort/beachy' scent ever)

    Honorable mention: L'eau d'Issey by Issey Miyake

    Creed isn't designer surely

    Tom Ford's private collection is pushing it

    Well it's available in the stores here in the U.S., but it doesn't seem to be all that popular. But for the Spring & Summer, there aren't many fragrances that are better than Declaration Cologne. Declaration L'Essence, which I own, is good too.
