    Default Feminine Side...

    Hello. I hope all are doing well.
    I'm on a lighter, airy & a floral, citrusy hunt for a new cologne. A male-style, type of cologne if that makes any sense. One that can of course be worn during the daylight hours and the early evening hours also, and during light events during the early evening hours.
    Please recommend something that you've worn or smelled yourself... Something a little sophisticated and not too expensive, please...

    Thanks so much, LeRoy L.

    The jardin series by Hermes goes for this style (airy, floral, transparent), eg jardin sur le nil, sur le toit, and others.

    Good suggestions.
    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.

    Might not be as "airy" as you are looking for, but try Givenchy Gentleman.

    Yeah I like the EDT here, and it's very much in a floral cologne style. Have not tried the cologne yet!

    Chanel Allure Homme Sport Cologne is a great one, and reasonably priced.

    Dior Homme Sport is also nice.

    1 Million Cologne is extremely floral.

    Azarro Wanted is cologne-styled but strong and long-lasting.

    Chanel Eau de Cologne is great, but probably too expensive.

    Chanel Eau de Cologne is what I thought of from your description.

    One of the most perfect summer/warm weather scents around, IMO. The perfect citrus/floral fragrance.

    Tabac Original?
    Light airy some citrus some flora some wood and a well refined gentlemanly aura.
    Top up when you want to re-fresh . Splash on cologne version is awesome. Has excellent development seeing you into early Evening.

    Gieffeffe by Gianfranco Ferre. Astonishingly inexpensive, absolutely beautiful fragrance and probably exactly what you seek.

    The description makes me think of Acqua di Parma's Colonia Assoluta.
