    Default Need Help ! Received $150 to Luckyscent as a gift..What modern scent would you buy for this Summer?

    I have most of the MFK's so that is out...I have Byredo Bal D' Afrique, Mojave Ghost, Gypsy Water.....

    Remember for me, longevity and projection are super important.....Prefer a relatively safe daily scent great for the Florida heat ? Something unique if possible but smells terrific to the opposite sex...

    Thoughts ?
    TOP TEN FOR SUMMER:
    1.) MFK Baccarat Rouge 540
    2.) MFK Aqua Celestin
    3.) MFK Pluriel Masculine
    4.) MFK Petit Matin
    5.) ADG Profumo
    6.) Mojave Ghost
    7.) Gypsy Water
    8.) Eight & Bob Nuit de Megeve

    D.S. & Durga Debaser or Tauer Incense Extreme. I don't even know because Florida seems hot as hell.

    Something to consider if you like Iris.

    Iris Bleu Gris by Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier

    Its like wearing the whole plant from the sweet musky blossom of the white iris to the green juicy stalk.
    Some of the rhizome, but not too much. Its very fresh, green, sueded in feel. Not weak so the green freshness keep blooming.

    Sounds awesome but is it too powdery or "lipsticky"? I'm not a HUGE powder fan but if it's muted, I would be totally ok with it...

    Hmm,

    50ml of Le Labo's "The Noir 29" (Bergamot citrus and Cedar blend for a sharp edge on top with a beautiful Fig note floating in the middle and some slightly spicy notes in the base. A found this to be a gorgeous fragrance when I wore a sample of it, but be careful how much you wear because it has a 'sharp' edge to it. I think very, very highly of this fragrance and recommend you place it high on your list of suggestions.)
    http://www.luckyscent.com/product/46...-29-by-le-labo

    50ml of Xerxof's "Nio" (well, your $150 will get you more than 50% of the way to buying it, but at $110 for 50ml, that is a really good price for a fragrance that is one of the best, if not the best summer fragrances I've ever smelled. If your entire $150 could buy a bottle of this then I would suggest it be your top choice, but since you still have to fork over $110, only you can decide if it's worth it. I think any chance to get this for $110, when this is completely out of most people's price range, then it's something to seriously consider.)
    http://www.luckyscent.com/product/51108/nio-by-xerjoff

    75ml of Diptyque's Tam Dao EDP (Although debatable as a summer scent, I think it will work fantastic in summer and this is the best sandalwood fragrance I have tested out of a lineup of highly recommended sandalwood fragrances. This....is a gorgeous smelling wood fragrance. Seriously, it's fantastic, I just cannot stress how good this stuff smells. I bought it before my sandalwood testing was even complete because it just blew me away.)

    It is not. Think suede, not the soft rhizome "orris" you're used to.
    Fresh, green suede. A bit dewy.

    I haven't actually smell it yet, but what about Tauer L'Eau? Maybe at least worth getting a sample ...

    shelter island by bond no 9. stellar performance for longevity and projection. Great for the summer and unlike anything out there. Gives you a nostalgic happy beach vibe.

    +1 for Tan Dao EDP. Have a sample I'm working through, but a future purchase when it runs out. Not exactly your described sillage level though.

    My recommendation is Mancera's Kumquat Wood. Very pleasing, high quality summer wood fragrance with the right amount of tropical sweetness, without the beach or sun lotion effect.

    BTW. Go Noles!

    Perhaps try something from Parle-Moi De Parfum.
    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.

    Hmmm...

    How about...
    Acqua Viva by Profumum: Smells like summer in a bottle.
    Virgin Island Water by Creed: My wife absolutely loves this one on me.
    Neroli Portofino by Tom Ford: I love the soapy aspect to this one mixed with the neroli.
    Fleurs de Citronnier by Serge Lutens: Dry citrus with just a hint of floral. It's nicer than you might think.


    1962 by Floris might fit the bill as well. It's one on my radar right now.


    Sorry if most of these aren't considered, "modern".
