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

    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.
