    Default Fresh spring/summer fragrance in extrait concentration?

    I've found that I really prefer the way that fragrances in heavier concentration wear on me. I generally get more subtle projection but exceptional longevity. I've found this with "heavier" fragrances I tend to wear in the colder weather like ambers, ouds, oriental fragrances in general. Two examples are MFK Oud Satin Mood extrait and Fahrenheit le Parfum.

    Can anyone recommend an extrait more generally suited for warmer weather? I'm thinking more citrus / aromatic fragrance or even a fougere or fresh musky scent.

    Hope I'm making sense here - thanks in advance!

    Thanks Hednic. This one sounds really good. I checked their site and they actually have a free shipping promotion right now but it doesn't look like they back out the VAT, which is odd. May look to bundle into an order from Jovoy instead.

    I recently bought Chanel's "Jersey" in extrait.
    It opens with a bright lime-like citrus and morphs into a lavender and vanilla with maybe a hint of iris. Jersey feels very high quality, simple and elegant. Very spring/summer-like IMO.
