Hi, as the title suggests, do you guys have any recommendations for such a scent?
I understand not many of you would enjoy a scent that is so subtle and uninteresting, but I'm looking for a clean and fresh designer fragrance that is more suited for outdoorsy activities and the beach. Here is some information about me! I'm 20 and I live in Singapore and it is really warm and humid here. Not looking for something too sweet or too floral or one that belongs to the high end designers and niche brands.
I'm new to the fragrance world and I'm appreciative of any suggestions! Thanks!
As you are in a hot and humid climate, I would suggest:
Mugler Cologne - very inexpensive too
Chanel - Allure Homme Edition Blanche
Armani - Acqua Di Gio
I'd try Guerlain Homme L'Eau (or L'Eau Boisee), Davidoff Cool Water and Crabtree and Evelyn West Indian Lime (if you can find it).

Ducati for Men is amongst the biggest under the radar frags on the planet ..... a superb performer in hot weather .
Should be easily available there for you online .
Another for Monsieur Balmain

Thanks for the suggestions! I'm currently looking at Azzaro Chrome Sport and Issey Miyake's L'eau D'issey Pour Homme Sport too. How do they fare?
Well then just buy calvin klein perfume, ferrari perfumes, chanel perfume online. These all are international brands and have very nice fragrance. you would definitely enjoy the smell of these scents. So don't wait and go ahead. Azzaro Chrome is also the finest brand but not more than calvin or ferrari.
You're actually considering two relatives of the two I was going ot suggest. Kenzo Eau 2 Kenzo and Azzaro Chrome. E2K is a very sharp citrus/green with grapefruit and tomato leaf. It doesn't last long on the skin (or clothes for that matter) but smells great while it is there. Chrome is well known and clean. Mont Blanc legend is another nice, light, clean fragrance.
Comme des Garcons Vettiveru
Brineapple (Pineapple, Guava, Ylang Ylang, Marine Notes, Green Tea, Cade, Guaiacwood, Cedar Wood, Ozone) / Fur - (Vintage Musks, Woods, Leather) / Onsen Wood (Hinoki/Hiba/Cedar/Yuzu) / Winter XVI (Tree Saps, Extractions and Resins, Bois des Landes, Bourbon Vetiver, Spearmint, Frankincense & Myrrh) / Atlas Incense II $5 OFF REMAINING (Cedar, Incense, Cardamom, Tonka, Cade & Birch Tar)
Best option in this case would be John Varvatos Artisan (not too floral nor sweet and very fresh; quite natural; on my skin i get medium longevity & projection but with 5-6 sprays).
Calvin Klein Eternity Summer 2013 & 2011

Issey L'Eau D'Issey Summer 2012 & 2013
Azzaro Chrome Sport
Burberry Summer editions
Guerlain Homne but with a Terrific natural Mojito vibe...

Millesime Imperial or, if your budget doesn't allow, Sean John Unforgivable.
Anything Chrome by Azzaro. Most the L'Eau d'Issey line from Issey Miyake. Both have very unique and pervasive qualities to them, regardless of temperature and humidity. I'd look at Chrome legend, specifically.

If you want fresh but also something that will last all day check out Nio by Xerjoff
+1 for Nio
Seconding especially Mugler Cologne. Also: Acca Kappa Muschio Bianco, Givenchy pour Homme Blue Label, Bleu de Chanel.
Fresh, crisp and clean are perfectly bottled in Acqua di gio essenza in my opinion.

Tons of great recommendations! So I will add Versace Pour Homme to the list a well!
IMO, Chrome sport is a pretty good one...but beware of L'eau D'Issey as it's kind of a polarizing scent. On my skin it gets pretty floral and musky on the dry down. I actually just bought the Summer 2013 edition and like the opening better and the more mellow dry down...kind of like a "light" version on the original and one I would highly recommend for a tropical climate like yours. Liked it so much, I sold my original bottle and will stick with this from now on

I think I'm leaning towards the more lemon-y fragrances for freshness! Currently considering Chrome Sport and Monsieur Balmain. Any more suggestions? Also, is it reliable to buy fragrances from Amazon? They are really cheap and products that are hard to find are easily avaiable there!
Try Tom Ford Neroli Portofino for a lot of citrus.
Amazon usually has good service, but sometimes the image on the site and what you get is different, and they have a disclaimer on this.
Likewise, some Amazon scents have serial numbers scraped off the bottles and cartons/boxes.

Guerlain Homme L 'Eau
+ 1 for Guerlain Homme L'Eau, I have the Boisee and find it very clean and fresh
Atelier Orange Sanguine is very fresh too.
How about the Hermes Jardin collection? I don't own them but they may work well in the heat and humidity from what I have read
