    Have tried the entire Bond no 9 line from Nieman Marcus, not my cup of tea. I may suggest, stick to topic please. As it's off discussion

    Creed VIW for me. Summer in a bottle.

    All are excellent fragrances for sure. I picked Essenza - not because it's the "best", but because it seems to remind me most of summertime (for no real reason).

    If I were smart and lived in a tropical climate, I would certainly say VIW. As it stands, VIW reminds me of what summer - what all seasons - should smell like.

    Isnt Di Gio overused? If too many people wear a frag it loses points with me.

    Pretty good poll options, nonetheless.

    Quite a rude comment from you.
    I was trying to be helpful and you serve me an arrogant rude reaply.

    I own all the frags in your poll, and none of them reminds me of summer in Europe, where I'm from.

    If you want to smell like a coconut with lime, buy Creed VIW - but its longevity sucks.
    If you want to smell like the average dude in the supermarket, get ADG Essenza or the original.
    If you want to smell like my father, get L'Eau D'Issey PH
    If you want to smell like every teenager, get Allure Hommer Sport
    If you want to smell like a stock broker get Aventus, but it's smokey basenote makes it an all year frag
    If you want to smell like an overly sweet fruit bowl, get Eau Fraiche

    You're welcome.

    ADGE and ADG are very close and to the average guy they smell the same.
    The OP is clearly an average rude guy.

    I do apologize, didn't mean to offend you. I'm not new to the fragrance world, at one point I had over 50 bottles in my collection. Fragrance, it's an addiction. Thank You for the suggestion anyhow.

    It smells great, I remember when my family and I made a trip to Chicago to Nieman Marcus and sprayed a tester on to a test strip. Drove back 3 hours home left the test strip on the counter. Next thing I know, I see my 1 year old chewing on the strip!!! The power of VIW, if not the best Creed

    I totally agree to Versace Eau Fraiche, was thinking of auctioning it off on Ebay. I do find myself wearing Allure homme sport often when going to the gym

    Dior Homme Sport...I can't imagine anybody trying to pull off Aventus in the summer it's too heavy imo
    Well enjoying what you're wearing is crucial, it is of the utmost importance to wear something that others like as well.

    Aventus is all year round for me, so I can't imagine thinking of it just as Summer. I would probably pick the Issey but I have the Summer version...

    Creed Virgin Island Water is just about my favorite, just smells like Summer.

    But a cheaper alternative that has more of a Coconut note and less of a tart lime would be the Calvin Klein CK One Summer 2014

    Aventus is the least Summer-like scent on this list. I can't believe people are recommending it over the other ones. It is the only one on the list the will become too cloying under the Summer heat. Stupid hype.
