    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:

    "It always seems impossible until it's done." -Nelson Mandela

    My mission statement: "I am not afraid to keep on living - I am not afraid to walk this world alone."

    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.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve other individuals' acknowledgement or respect.

    3. Tom Ford - Grey Vetiver
    4. Xerjoff - Fars

    7. Clive Christian - 1872 for Men
    8. by Kilian - Straight to Heaven

    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.

    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.

    Homeboy, if your talking so fresh, and so clean. You cant use just one. You gotta casually RIDE with that Gucci Envy, spray overload wit that vintage (pre-1994) Dolce Gabbana Pour Homme, with a just a light coat of that armani sport code athlete if its summatime.
    Only do this if you have enough $$ to get a cane and a fancy gimp suit though....too fresh, too clean

    That I have knowingly smelled, Penhaligon's Castile, Gendarme and to a slightly lesser degree Yachtman Blue and Sung Homme I have smelled some VERY fresh clean scents on people but I am not sure what they are, perhaps some of the ones mentioned by others.

    To be quite honest? It was this old Abercrombie & Fitch I had when I first started getting into fragrances (back near my join date). And it was so clean, light, and fresh that it was my go-to cologne to wear for interviews. The bottle is long gone, unfortunately.
