Best Summer Fragrance EVER

I cannot describe how wonderful this is. I have worn it for a LONG time, and it never gets old.

The PERFECT fragrance for hot weather You can literally almost bathe in it and not offend people. I wish they made gallon jugs of it

Agreed - I received my first bottle as a gift when I was a teenager (a long time ago) and I’ve worn it ever since.

The original Eau is lovely, but it has almost no longevity. But the Concentré is spectacular.

I wear this when I don't want a more floral or herby. I also love the Twilly line, especially Twilly d'Hermès Eau Ginger

What else do people (especially men) here like to wear in summer? I like the Chanel Eaux line, particularly Paris-Deauville (which smells like basil, patchouli, and orange) and Paris-Édimbourg (which smells like cypress, juniper berries, and lavender). They last longer and project more than most eaux de cologne.

I am obsessed with Vacation Inc.'s signature "Vacation" eau de toilette. It's based on their namesake sunscreen, which is a throwback to old school '80s/'90s sunscreen scents. There are notes of coconut, banana, musk pool water, and swimsuit lycra. It's an extremely nostalgic scent and reminds me of my aunt and uncle's pool shed where they kept all their pool toys and sunscreen bottles. They just released a new eau de toilette called "After Sun" based on their aloe gel; I tried it and it also is very nice, but I'm dedicated to the signature scent.

Haston I-12, since 1978

Wrong, OP. It is good but quite the same as two dozen other summer citrus fragrances. It is over 80 USD for 100ml and 110 for 200ml and that is from a very discounted source. It is 140 USD for 100ml on the Hermes website. It is WAY overpriced to be the "best summer fragrance ever".

In the same price range, Sisley Eau De Campagne is better, IMO. Lancôme Ô is half the price and just as good. I like the Spanish Colonia myself. Every design house has a good cologne. The relatively recent Gucci Guilty Cologne is one of my favorite new ones. Guerlain has an extensive line of summer colognes as does Acqua di Parma. Every Mediterranean city has an old local perfume house producing a good one, from Turkey around Europe to Spain. I personally thing the BEST summer fragrance is a splash in the 20-40 dollar range in a 200 - 800ml bottle.

Calvin Klein Truth is a great green summer frag. I know, don’t roll your eyes because it’s CK… it really is quite nice. It’s not very strong, which also makes it something you can sneak by the scent Nazis at work.

r8 I think the Hermes is very reasonably priced, considering how delightful it is

I wish I could bottle the smell of summer rain.

Bond No. 9 Shelter Island or Lafayette Street work really well.

Somebody was wearing Chrome on the street yesterday. I looked for a leathery tan and low-rise boot cut jeans, but couldn’t spot them..

I agree with R11: Sisley Eau de Campagne is a gorgeous scent with notes of tomato leaves. I also like Diptyche's Philosykos, with wonderful fig leaf notes.

Have any of these “men’s fragrances” ever been called MARY?!?!?!?!? The names of these are more faggot sounding than Aaron Rodgers describing how to get a girls pussy wet before pounding her senseless…..

I prefer Oomph!

petrichor, R15. Baie 19 by Le Labo, After the Rain by Replica. Or just many watery garden ones. En Passant by Frederic Malle.

I never knew men made a distinction in the summer and wore a different cologne.

R24 and have you ever heard of summer suits, 3 season suits, and winter suits? Does a man where the same hat in the summer as the winter? Just the one hat for you, right?

The best summer scent is actually “Grass” from The Gap—circa mid 90s. They managed to bottle the smell of a freshly-mowed lawn.

OP,. you're stimulating my creative juices, and I'm very good at locator research.

You managed the false equivalence, but your attempt at superiority failed at "where", R25.

by Anonymousreply 28May 20, 2024 7:31 PM

Or you could just switch it up from Dial Gold to Zest for Men.

R26 I heard somewhere that The Gap is brining back all of their scents. Haven't seen it online yet, but you are right "Grass" was the best summer scent and fun to wear.

It's pretty harmless and probably good for the soul for an old fart to spray on a fragrance from their youth, just to reminisce fondly.

by Anonymousreply 33May 27, 2024 9:39 AM

Gap Grass is a great scent. I would also suggest Bulgari Green Tea and Creed Neroli Sauvage.

Eau de Orange Vert is indeed lovely and the in-room fragrance for either Le Meridien or Westin in Europe. I must have half a dozen small if still unopened bottles. The soap is nice, too.

by Anonymousreply 35May 28, 2024 2:31 PM

Pricey as shit but Louis Vuitton Pacific Chill and Afternoon Swim are just amazing.

I also stand by Sailing Day by Replica as a classic-

Beach Walk by Replica is slightly feminine but nice-

Beach by Bobbi Brown has the most accurate Coppertone smell I have ever sniffed.

by Anonymousreply 36May 28, 2024 2:44 PM

Why not just buy Coppertone?!

My scent memory of summer is Clarins After-Sun moisturizer.

Louis Vuitton Pacific Chill is USD 500 for 100ml. Mkay.

OP, your post prompted me to do something I’ve never done before. I ordered on your recommendation, not ever having experienced the cologne before. It arrived today, and I’m pretty happy with it. Thank you for the recommendation!
