Looking for summer/ spring scents

Discussion in 'Fragrance' started by doctordial, May 4, 2019.

    I just wanted to know what you guys are wearing for spring and summer. I may have some of the same things you have. It's still cool at night here in Baltimore and at night is when I usually go out and use my coognes.

    Azzaro PH, Paco Rabanne PH, Bulgari Aqva, Polo green, Chanel Allure Sport Extreme, Nautical Chrome, Lanvin Sport are a few of my favorites.
     
  2. Summer scents...I have a bunch. A partial list:

    Cool Water by Davidoff
    Eau de Gaga by Lady Gaga
    Acqua Essenziale Blu by Salvatore Ferragamo
    Aqua Pour Homme Marine by Bvlgari
    Eternity For Men and CK One by Calvin Klein
    Sauvage by Dior
    Prestige Black by Cuba Paris
    Set Sail St. Barts for Men by Tommy Bahama
     
  3. The future Mrs DorsetBlue and myself went fragrance shopping a couple of weeks ago, for our future nuptials in Grenada. After much deliberation (and sinus destruction), I left with Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male Intense (the normal just didn't have enough umph!) and the SO came out with a Jimmy Choo one (cannot remember which). I have subsequently also picked up a bottle of Davidoff Cool Water for general summer use.
     
  4. The normal Le Male didn't have enough oomph?? You sure your sinuses weren't destroyed already? ;-)
     
  5. Okay, a better way to put it is: I really like the top notes of Le Male but the base notes are lacking. The Intense version stays with the top notes for hours, whilst the normal fades to the base notes relatively quickly (about an hour).
     
  6. Makes sense, I’ve never tried the Intense but it’s helpful to hear about the comparison.

    Congrats on your impending wedding by the way! Is that Grenada as in Spain?
     
  7. As much as I love Spain (spent a lovely fortnight in Andalucia last year, in a villa up a mountain surrounded by Olive groves), no. This is the Caribbean Grenada. Actually my Razorock Caribbean Holiday has just turned up and it is Pina Colada in an aftershave.
     
  8. Well that sounds equally amazing, if not more so. And its making me realize that I misspelled the Spanish city of Granada... long week, brain is fried.
     
  9. Yes, should be. As long as the sandals wedding coordinators are up to snuff (other half is not a bridezilla by any stretch of the imagination but it doesn't stop her fretting).

    Brooks Brothers Country Club, which has never gotten enough love to my mind. Unusual mint notes.

    Also, Bond No. 9, Fire Island. European sun screen.

    Both very warm weather to me. I wish I still had some C&S Oxford and Cambridge.
