    Default What's the best summer/spring fragrance for 100 dollars? [SC/US]

    Just to let everyone know, I'm going to be picking this up at Belk's/Dillards since my budget is around 100 or so dollars and I feel more comfortable picking said fragrance up in person.

    So to give you gents an idea of what I like, I loved Nautica Blue and Le Male by Gaultier, but out of all the fragrances I own, those seem to be the only fresh ones I own right now, so I'm defintely lacking in the fresh department.

    I've smelled Polo Blue and enjoyed it, but I've also been told that Polo Black is also a good summer contender, so that is another fragrance I might be interested in.
    Oh, and I actually have tried and enjoyed Eros, and have a bottle of it, so thats a thing.

    Hey all, thanks for all the great tips, ill def. be checking em all out, but I had a question - I've heard that (and this is going to sound weird) fragrances with a blue theme are really good for summer, and while fragrances with a black theme are also good for summer, they're more for all year round. Can anyone confirm or deny this?

    Dior Eau Sauvage (checked at Sephora US online, as of today $95 for the 100ml eau de toilette)

    If you don't mind "crossing the gender barrier": the biggest bottle of Estée Lauder White Linen eau de parfum is going for $77 (!!! Cannot help feel like they're practically giving it away) and Chanel Cristalle in eau de toilette (smaller size) is taking in $90 (larger size $110)
    Yeah, Montgomery Clift could get it

    Test out Varvatos Artisan Pure if they carry the line. Any of the Artisan might suit your fancy, tbh, but I'm partial the the Pure (white wicker bottle).

    I think you should give Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Eau Intense a try. Really nice, tart, fun summer scent.
