    Amouage - Homage Attar

    Though I personally think this fragrance transcends both those terms.

    You know, this is kinda tough....but probably I'd have to say Armani Code Sport Athlete. Although I could see 2008 Dior homme sport right in there also.

    My SOTD, actually: L'Humaniste. Very fresh, citrusy, and clean - it reminds me of this old commercial in a way:

    Hard to choose, but for me probably Siecle.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.

    Been using Dove original clean body wash and underarm deodorant for years and still haven't found anything as fresh and clean in a cologne.

    If I did, I think I would get rid of more than half my collection as that would be the closest thing to a "holy grail" for me.

    Several vetivers floating by, and I agree. The freshest, zingiest vetiver to me is Malle Vetiver extraordinaire.

    Tommy T - whatever shirt I wear, this makes it seem ultra fresh and newly ironed.

    I second (or third?) Creed's Pure White Cologne, but in my experience, especially on a hot day, nothing is more fresh and clean than Acqua di Parma Colonia and Colonia Essenza.
