    Default Anything better than Versace Pour Homme?

    I see so many people recommend VPH for summer and I was wondering if there is anything better?

    There are plenty of better fragrances but imo not for the price point. VPH is my go to summer fragrance because its cheap, it last, and it gets compliments left and right from the ladies. But obviously there are plenty of great summer scents.

    Versace Eau de Fraiche is pretty good too....but at this price point, you cannot go wrong with it...

    Chanel Bleu is a close second...
    CURRENT TOP TEN FOR FALL/WINTER:
    1.) Helmut Lang Cuiron (Vintage)
    2.) Tiffany for men (Vintage)
    3.) Bel Ami Vetiver
    4.) New York Intense
    5.) Nicolai Carre d'as
    6.) Cartier Declaration Essence
    7.) Frederick Malle's VE/Sycomore

    Agree.

    For the price it is definitely impressive, but I prefer Nautica Voyage if we are going for smell/price ratio.

    At higher prices there are countless better fragrances for Summer (Creed, Heeley, Frapin, Xerjoff) etc. Not sure if that answers your question.
    Current favorites_____Black Tourmaline_____Gucci Pour Homme II_____Memoir Man_____Tuscan Leather______Montale Aoud and Pine_____Sel Marin_____Invasion Barbare_____Tonka Imperial____Dior Homme Intense_____L'Humaniste____Santal 33_____Bois d'Argent_____Nio_____MFK Oud_____Lumiere Noire_____Bois d'Encens_____Cuir Ottoman

    Mugler Cologne may be another good value for money choice for summer. While it remains a matter of taste whether it is actually better (or not) than fragrances within a similar or at a different price point, I guess it is a summer fragrance with a fairly decent price-quality ratio.

    Plenty better than VpH, but at its price point, it's at least a middle of the pack option, and worth consideration. A similar option would be Dior Homme Sport, which I personally would prefer.

    I really want to like Dior sport and I have tried so many times but something odd about the dry down. I love the opening...its fresh and full of citrus, which I love but after about an hour it turns into a weird earthy dull scent to my nose.

    Great scent. Not the BEST, but a pretty good option for the < $100 group.

    I keep preaching the greatness that is Kenneth Cole Black. Others that are great in the lower cost bracket:

    +1 Nautica Voyage
    +1 Mugler Cologne
    + 1 Dior Homme Sport

    Acqua Di Gio Essenza
    Chanel Allure Homme Edition Blanche
    Dior Homme Cologne 2013


    If you are willing to go > $100, you can find plenty that are better. However, VPH is a very good scent for sure.
    Seasonal favorites:

    1. Creed - Spice & Wood
    2. Creed - Aventus
    3. Dior - Vetiver
    4. by Kilian - Incense Oud
    5. Puredistance - Black
    6. by Kilian - Cruel Intentions
    7. Armani Privé - Oud Royal
    8. Brückner - Aoud 1
    9. Creed - Royal English Leather
    10. House of Matriarch - Blackbird

    If so, not by much IMO....this stuff is right up there amongst the very best of summer scents.

    It seems like Versace Pour Homme has had a sudden surge of popularity on here (seeing all the new mentions of it). I own & like it but it's nothing that will amaze you. Nautica Voyage is at a much cheaper price point & smells better in my opinion. Dior Homme Sport ( Both vintage & Reform) & plenty of fragrances from Hermes blow VPH out of the water in terms of uniqueness & complexity. Again, Im not bashing VPH or anything as I like it enough to own a bottle of it.

    Guerlain Homme & Pamplelune Guerlain also are among the best designer summer scents on the market I've sampled
