    Creed still sells it, but only by the 8.4 oz flacon. There are 2.5 oz tester bottles available, however.
    This!!! For sure. The lime note is so realistic, it's amazing. Kicks the YSL's ass.

    It's becoming more difficult to find but there should still be plenty out there. Selection Verte is a great choice, but I tried to give you a less expensive option as well.
    +1 for the Sport Code Athlete

    Also consider the regular Sport Code. Both shine in hot muggy weather, their projection and longevity is amazing.
    In cooler milder climate they don't perform too well.

    No, that's Guerlain Homme

    This is Eau de Guerlain:



    I personally do not smell any mint in EdG. I like it, but to me it's much more about citrus.

    Track down Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Herba Fresca. It's delightfully minty!

    I second Hermes Concentree d'Orange Verte, Geranium pour monsieur, Live Jazz, Guerlain Homme and Herba Fresca. Interesting how no less than three Guerlains make the list. I'm not such a fan of Roadster/Roadster Sport.

    I own all of these in either full bottles or decants, and I don't know about magnetic properties, but on a subjective scale of masculinity, it roughly goes like:

    Geranium > Guerlain Homme > Live Jazz > Orange Verte > Herba Fresca.

    So take your pick.

    I don't think any mint note is going to help you appear cool, CMan. Smell is the least of your problems it seems.

    Honestly, I would think that Mont Blanc Leged Limited Edition is a perfect fragrance based on your inquiries.

    Lacoste (original - meaning the one from like 1980), Green Water (Jacques Fath) spring to mind. Maybe Pasha.
    In rotation: Greenbriar (new), Silver Mountain Water, Dunhill for Men (1934), Acqua di Parma Colonia, Habit Rouge EDC, Ho Hang, B*Men, Agua Brava

    Relax. It was a joke. Why are your feelings hurt over something that wasn't even directed towards you? To everyone else, thank you for all the suggestions. I'm in the process of tracking some of them down.

    Cman, I'm just going to reiterate in case it was lost in the derailment of this thread--depending on how much you're willing to spend, Selection Verte by Creed is seriously the best "Citrus-Mint" fragrance out there. It's flawless. It features several different mints and some of the brightest citrus notes you'll find.

    Armani Code Sport Athlete is almost like a poor man's Selection Verte. I don't mean to use that phrase condescendingly. What I mean is that it's very similar to Selection Verte (and actually has much better longevity) but lacks the more refined elements and delicacy that SV has. It's also about a fifth of the price.

    And finally, +1 to anybody who recommended Guerlain Homme L'Eau. It's another great one, though largely discontinued and quite difficult to find in the US right now. It's selling for nearly double its price when you do find it

    Eau Radieuse was also recommended earlier in the thread. I love this one, and you should sample it. For an "out of the box" citrus and mint fragrance, it doesn't get any colder and more refreshing than this. It's expensive and kind of hard to find, so sample first, but you should see if you can get your hands on it because it's a really cool fragrance.

    My apologies to you and the other admin here. I now see what I said was completely out of line. I didn't mean it in a discriminatory way at all. In fact, I've donated my time in the past to different women's rights causes.

    Just use 10 sprays of Kouros and you'll be surprised what effect that will have on the woman you want to attract.

    Some really good ones already mentioned.


    It's sad that I am the only fan of Kenneth Cole Black however. Perfect citrus/mint scent. And the price can't be beat.
