    Default What would you consider the most masculine summer scent?

    I admit I'm a total newbie and this is my first post, so please go easy on me.
    I have a large selection of shave soap and aftershaves but I'm pretty new to edt's.
    I mostly wear YSL Rive Gauche in the winter and I have some Aventus I've been wearing this spring, but that's it.
    I'm not into the unisex thing. I want masculine or none. What else would you recommend?

    A crisp, clean Vetiver like Guerlain in the summer, or perhaps a slightly sweet vetiver like Creed's Original Vetiver. Very masculine and clean barbarshop type scents suitable for summer heat IMO.

    I don't know about most masculine, but I would recommend trying Acqua di Parma's Colonia Essenza. Refreshing, long lasting, and as someone into shaving/aftershaves, I think you'd appreciate it.

    Fahrenheit, Kouros, Declaration, Santos, Pasha, Van Cleef & Arpels Pour Homme, Tsar, Polo Green, Safari, Dhofar, Lacoste, Tuscan Leather, Azzaro, Lapidus Pour Homme , Narciso for Him, Armani Eau Pour Homme and there you go. I would wear any of these in summer. But summer friendly Declaration and Armani.

    Wow. Thanks for all the suggestions!

    +1 Kouros.

    Works surprisingly well in summer if applied lightly.

    To your question above, Eau Sauvage is fantastic in summer, but I wouldn't call it the "most masculine."

    Eau Sauvage is perfect for summer. Two great flankers are the EDP and Cuir.

    32 or 64 by Lili Bermuda are really nice also. Almost all of Lili's fragrances belong in a tropical climate, 32 and 64 are both very masculine, but light summery at the same time.

    As a masculine summer one, I'd put Aventus ahead of Spice and Wood because the OP asked for "the 'most' masculine" and Spice & Wood has some elements that allow for it to be unisex, whereas Aventus is decidedly 'male' due to the smokiness of the birch. Spice & Wood only gets that 'hint' of incense (not really 'smoke' like Aventus) in the dry down, while the opening is unisex.

    Spice & Wood is my favorite fragrance any time of year. It's just a masterpiece. I know people overuse that term, but IMO S&W is a masterpiece, as are some other Creeds like Bois du Portugal and potentially Royal Mayfair in a 'niche' kind of way.

    Anyway, I think the OP would likely think Aventus would be the more masculine Creed summer-appropriate fragrance.

    I actually think Rive Gauche would be fine for Summer. To me it's one of the few scents that can be worn anytime of year and for any occasion.
