    and



    One is a modern twist on Cedar (not pencil shavings) with some Citrus and Iris and the other is super fantastic in heat with a great lime note and a touch of mint...Highly recommend these two....They are both modern scents that work well in our heat down here in Florida....I would personally NOT recommend cloying fragrances that some have mention that simply REEK in the heat....Eau Sauvage may be a bit potent for out heat unless it's for a nice dinner out or evening wear...Certainly not during the day...Sorry to disagree with some folks....
    These look interesting....never tried ...what I am curious about is among these 2 which one has great lime note with a touch of mint as you described ?

    Anything super dry and sharp with citrus for cutting the summer air, but no sweetness whatsoever.

    Vintage or 2nd version of Eau de Rochas pour Homme. Refined herbal citrus with a very unique mossy/woody/patchouli drydown.

    Will be perusing this thread for suggestions.
    Really really have a hard time selecting something for summer / heat. I.e this morning, popped on Azzaro Marimetto, changed mind, then Lanvin Homme, then lanvin Sport.
    Have packed atomisers with me of lanvin Sport and RG as backups for the day. Lol not lol!
    Try as I might over the last few months, just irk me after a bit. I don't know, yet to parallel some advice aimed photographers, but works well here, they seem way to literal.
    Ocean aquatic isn't working for me.

    Lanvin sport stays on the right side of the line for me, fresh, citrus, lavender... doesnt really go into traditional aqua fresh territory.

    Perhaps I'm looking for a very masculine leaning cologne with performance?

    I'm not into the unisex thing. I want masculine or none. What else would you recommend?
    Rive Gauche works in Toronto summers. As long as the day is below 30°C/90°F. In Florida I'm not so sure you can pull that off. At The Barber's from Maison Margiela is in the same vein as Rive Gauche and is a little bit more hot weather safe. Still not something I'd reach for when its humid as hell and pushing 100.

    Here are some masculine summer choices. They are mostly older but are from a time when men's fragrances were more rugged:
    - Havana
    - Tuscany
    - New West
    - Bowling Green
    - Pasha (original EDT, not the new EDP)
    - Safari
    - 1881 Cerruti
    - Milano Cento Him
    - Sergio Tacchini

    Of those listed above Pasha and Safari smell very close to one another and New West & Milano Cento aren't too far off from them either. Of all of them, Pasha smells the most masculine to me because of the abundance of oakmoss in it

    Lots of chat about Kouros as a summer frag.
    I went for it today!
    Cautious application. Two under shirt chest sprays and dabs on wrist and neck.
    Gonna stick it out, considered a backup atomiser should I bot enjoy it, but then thought, ah let's do this properly!
