    I’ll chuck a few in the mix;

    Cheap - Tommy by Tommy Hilfiger, I started wearing this last year after noticing it in a discounters, for the price (sub £20) it’s actually a great fragrance and definitely something I would associate with Spring/summer, due to the price I wasn’t expecting much from it but strangely it’s awesome! I get loads of compliments when I wear this and it lasts a good 6-8+ hours with great projection.

    Mid - Allure Homme Sport eau Extreme by Chanel, don’t think this needs any explanation, it’s a staple of the Chanel range and is the first fragrance that comes to mind when thinking Summer to me.

    High; Virgin Island Water by Creed, coconut and citrus which give a very tropical vibe, definitely one for a beach day.

    These are my picks but I guess it depends what you interpret as “fresh” for me I think ‘citrus’ but others might lean towards a more aquatic scent or even something more clean and soapy (if that’s more your vibe let me know as there are some great fragrances across the board which cover these areas too ).

    No doubt the others will be along soon and you’ll soon have a fantastic list to go and explore (I wouldn’t blind buy any after poor past experiences).

    Good luck finding a nice spring/summer scent
    My Most Complimented:

    1). Aventus - Creed
    2). Sauvage - Dior
    3). Allure Homme Sport - Chanel
    4). L'Homme - Prada
    5). Acqua Di Gio Profumo - Giorgio Armani
    Currently wearing: Aventus by Creed

    Niche recommendations:

    4160 Tuesdays Ealing Green
    much better IMHO than GIT and along the same lines, just better

    Gallivant Brooklyn "A fresh, spicy head, with notes of bergamot, squeezed lemon and orange juice. Incense, cardamom, ozonic notes. A floral heart, with magnolia and orris root. And a base of white woods, benzoin, amber and musks"

    higher price range
