    Default Questions about two types of summer fragrances

    Hello everyone, Zhang Fan here with two more questions. Thank you for any help!

    1. Are there any classic/older women's fragrances which are suitable for summer, and not too fruity or sweet?

    2. Are there any fougere fragrances which are also suitable for summer? I have heard that Platinum Egoiste is one like this. Is that true?

    Yes.

    Many for both.
    Women: examples are "green" ones, eg Cristalle (especially the eau verte), and the current Chanel No 19
    Fougeres: I think most are, eg Rive Gauche.

    Chanel Platinum Egoiste is excellent for summer, also Chanel Pour Monsieur EDT is great for summer it wears lighter and works great in the heat.
