    Default Your Most Recent Summer Purchases

    What are your top 5 new additions to your collection that were made with summer in mind?

    I personally added a lot of Bois 1920. The whole line has a "vacation" feel to it.

    1. Bois 1920 - Dolce di Giorno
    2. Bois 1920 - Verde Di Mare
    3. Olfactive Studio - Lumiere Blanche
    4. Olfactive Studio - Panorama
    5. Etro - Musk
    Currently wearing: Rêve en Cuir by Indult

    Not purchased with summer in mind but fit well in the season:

    All five new Pierre Guillaume scents from the Croisieres Collection plus many more.

    A bottle of Creed's Green Irish Tweed. It will be one that I use year round, but I am loving it here during the spring, and I can only imagine it works perfectly during the summer.

    Chanel Allure Homme Edition Blanche. Works wonderfully on my skin actually and suits the somewhat stuffy yet strongly air conditioned atmosphere in our office. The hotter I get the better it works. Doesn't project madly which I prefer in the office.

    Only a few really.

    Sel Marin and Grand Neroli, both of which should be waiting for me when I get home.
    I guess I could include the Atelier Cologne sample set seeing as it totals 44ml (22 x 2 ml samples)

    Quorum Silver is actually PERFECT for summer, so fresh and crisp without relying on generic citrus notes.

    Its cheap price means it will be my beach / pool / throw in a bag spray.

    I discovered the Sephora at the mall yesterday and purchased my first Issey Miyake fragrance, L'Eau D'Issey Pour Homme Sport. I plan to go back and purchase many new fragrances. The staff were super helpful and signed me up for their Beauty Insider card.

    Xerjoff's 40 Knots, and after sampling today, I'm thinking about buying Xerjoff's Comandante as well. It's excellent stuff that I'm surprised isn't talked about more. Very appealing and classy.

    I'm not going to be adding any summer-specific scents because I have what I need:

    turtle vetiver exercise 1

    But I wear anything anytime.

    Interesting I hear good things about this and Aqua quorum! I don't really care for the original in it's current formulation.

    I have been tempted to buy Vetiver Extraordinaire the past 3 visits to barneys NYC.
    Every time i was steered away from it.
