    Default Similar to LIDGE for summer

    Hello everyone,
    I am looking for something similar to LIDGE (which I love wearing, and I especially enjoy its gorgeous drydown), but more suited for the spring/summer season. Perhaps guerlains cristaux d'agrumes?
    Hope you guys can help me out!

    I would consider 125 Years Your Companion For Life by Victorinox Swiss Army for men. This is an obscure cheapy. More similar to LIDG, not LIDGE, because of the citrus. I own both this and LIDG, and they both smell similar, of course LIDG is heavier, better quality, that's expected from Guerlain. but 125 Years definitely does not smell cheap. It's like a thinner cocoa, not patchouli (which I actually like), more citrus, and tonka. Very safe fragrance, and at its price point, you can't really complain.
    My Ultimate Top 5:

    Fahrenheit (1988)
    Paul Smith Man (2009)
    Burberry London (2006)
    Prada Amber pour Homme (2006)
    Arpege pour Homme (2005)

    Although not the same, Still Life by Olfactive Studio has a similar vibe to me.

    Simply its original form, LIDG!

    +1.

    Also - A different type of cocoa but I think DHI does better in the heat, at least Summer nights, than LIDGE.

    As others have said, why not just go with the original EDT version of LIDG?

    Cristaux d'Agrumes would be a good choice if you can find it, as is the d'un Ete limited edition version.

    Seconding Jive Hippo's Kokorico by Night, the original LIDG, and adding Givenchy Very Irresistible Fresh Attitude to the list.
