    Default Your favorite fresh scent

    I am a huge fan of fresh scents. I recently got my hands on a sample of mefisto gentiluomo by xerjoff and I can honestly say that that is the best scent I've smelled so far. I was completely blown away by the fougere/aquatic combination. There's nothing more beautiful than that in my opinion. Has anyone smelled mefisto gentiluomo? And what's your favorite fresh scent?

    I still haven't gotten around to Gentiluomo. I'm very interested in trying it though.

    My favorite fresh scents at the moment are Roja Dove Elysium Parfum Homme, Bleu de Chanel EDP, L'Humaniste, Virgin Mint, Menthe Fraiche, and Guerlain Homme L'Eau. Chanel Eau de Cologne and Edition Blanche are two others I recently picked up and am really enjoying.

    I also wore L'Homme Ideal Sport today and really enjoyed it. I didn't like it at all when I tried it when it was released a couple years ago, but this time I got a lot more out of it, and it really smelled nice.

    Well, "fresh" is a subjective term.

    When I think of "fresh," I think of rather light, inoffensive and office-safe scents. Things like...

    Floris 71/72 (definitely my favorite)

    Chanel Allure Homme Sport
    Chanel Allure Homme Cologne Sport
    Chanel Platinum Egoiste
    Lili Bermuda Fresh Water
    Salvatore Ferragamo Tuscan Soul
    MFK Petit Matin
    MFK Aqua Universalis
    Basenotes sales: Tiffany for Men Concen, de Bachmakov, Atelier Vetiver Fatal, Tiffany for Men mini, 17 Cuba Paris frags, L'Essence de Cerruti, Reyane Insurrection, numerous popular SAMPLES! http://www.basenotes.net/threads/419...ples-amp-More!

    Crystal Flacon sales: Prelude to Love, Noir de Noir, SAMPLES! http://flacon.ambaric.net/viewtopic.php?t=626

    Default Re: Your favorite fresh scent

    I love my freshies, so could never settle on one and only...

    Armani Code Sport
    Annick Goutal Eau d'Hadrien
    Heeley Sel Marin or Note de Yuzu
    Atelier Cologne Orange Sanguine
    Dior Escale aux Marquises
    Guerlain Bergamote Calabria
    Tommy Bahama Set Sail St. Barts
    Creed Erolfa
    Al Wisam Day (or other SMW clones)
    Serge Lutens L'Eau Froide

    If pressed, I'd probably say Al Wisam Day, or any other Silver Mountain Water clone that beats the original in terms of longevity and the ink note.

    But for really stinking hot weather, nothing beats keeping a cologne style fragrance on the fridge, such as Escale aux Marquises, Bergamote Calabria or even a bottle of 4711.

    Xerjoff Uden, Kobe, Nio & 1861. All great fresh scents that have very good staying power.

    Also, I must add Zegna's Florentine Iris, Sicilian Mandarin and Mediterranean Neroli.

    I have never been into “fresh” fragrances and have always stuck to the heavier fragrances...especially the oriental woody genre. However, lately I tried some freshies that have changed my mind: Arjuna, Dragonboat and Energique by TRNP. Beautiful naturals that are perfect for summer, without the performance issues of some other natural fragrances.

    I like Diptyque L’Ombre Dans L’Eau. It’s rose has an aquatic, transparent feeling and brings to mind black currant brambles by cool, shady creek side.

    This is a interesting pick. One that Hednic spoke about before. I am very tempted to try this line now it has come available to me. Living around the seaside when I grew up in England my ears really perked up. Any more thoughts about this one.

    Curve Wave (wearing today) is my momentary fave. Another "fresh water" aquatic. Cheap, too, but excellent.
