    Default Similar to Caron the Third man for hot seasons

    Dear BNers,
    I think I cannot describe how much I love Caron the Third Man.
    I love to wear the Third Man in rainy days under 90F.
    It always gives me brave, aloof, and isolated vibe.
    But it is a bit too heavy for hot days.
    Could you give me some opinions with similar vibe for summer?
    The first one comes to my mind is Chanel PM.
    Is there any others?
    Thank you all.

    Not similar but also heavy on cloves and lavender: Bracken Man by Amouage
    Currently wearing: Lonestar Memories by Tauer

    I assume you want something with cloves rather prominent, and that isn't normally a note you associate with summer.

    Yardley Gentleman might work, if you like a more classic men's cologne. It doesn't last long but there are enough citruses in it that I could see wearing it in summer. Discontinued now, but you should be able to find it on eBay for under $30.
    Most worn:

    Black Comme des Garçons, Borneo 1834 Serge Lutens, Patchouli Santa Maria Novella

    Literally came here to post this. Singing the praises of Amouage Bracken Man for some time now. Should be getting a bottle soon.

    I’d try Jicky for it’s more fresh with that lemony lavender similarity
    Currently wearing: Gabrielle by Chanel

    Another for Bracken Man to fulfill your need.
    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.

    Marbert Homme in the horizontal rectangular bottle (clear glass) is like the greenish version of vintage Third Man, as I discovered only a few days ago.

    How about Caron Pour Un Homme? It's reasonably fresh, and similar to Le 3me Homme in some ways.
    50 sprays a day keeps the doc away

    If the requirement is a similar vibe for summer then yes the Caron PuH can me a good suggestion here but really worth sampling first to get a proper feel for it. I found the current EdT a bit too powdery for my likes.
