Good summer fragrances? Everything I've got is too heavy but I'm not that keen on "Sports" scents, which would seem the obvious answer

Is it just me or does anyone else find that CDG fragrances just don't last? I wear the Monocle Hinoki one a lot but it's barely detectable by mid-morning. Same with Man 2.

I foolishly put some Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male on a couple of weeks ago, after having found a almost finished bottle from about ten years ago at the bottom of a drawer, and I was surrounded by a hideous fug of sickly-sweet odour for the whole day. It's a gross smell (although I'm sure I used to like it) but at least it lasts longer than a few seconds.

Different for each fragrance IMO. Wonderwood, CDG2, Guerilla 2 & 888 last forever whereas the cologne and energy series dissapear in no time.

Nasomatto are nice but pricey. They are extraits though which softens the blow.

Isn't that just the difference between an EDT and a EDP?

Ah, misread. Thought you said new ones. I've got Cowboy Grass which is nice. Find it quite strong. More like a cologne.

any recommendations for deodorant sticks? i guess i'm not the only one working in a f#in hot office… Sad
copped that dior homme sport stick today just because i needed some asap solution, but i'd like to have some alternative!
…and i know, that dior sport fragrance is nothing special, but for a deodorant it's a really fresh and subtle solution.

thx!

House of Fraser, or any of the big department stores should have them in. I made repeat offences though.
