I've smelled Burberry Brit and London and know that I like them both, I can't remember their distinct scents. Would either be appropriate for the spring/summer time? If not, what would be a nice scent?
London is no - it's definitely more of a fall/winter night frag because of its tobacco/leather/mossinness.
I think Brit is a lighter one that should be alright for spring/summer.
In general for spring/summer, look for fragrances that use terms like "marine" or "aqua" in their descriptions or profiles. I really like my Nautica Voyage - it's inexpensive, has a long staying power, and projects decently well. Oh, and it smells really good and clean. Chicks dig it
Check out the different Polo colors, they're nice and light, I wear Burberry London on the cooler/cloudy days, and Polo Black for the sunny/warmer days and it seems to fit. I'm in San Antonio if that helps any.
For clean scents I also like CK Free. My favorite warm weather cologne ever was Kenneth Cole Signature but I haven't been able to find it for sometime. Although a quick google on it shows it's still available.
was looking for a new summer-ish fragrance today, smelled the new Tierry Muglier, the new Issey Miyake summer fragrances. I didnt really like either, the issey I liked somewhat but it was very potent, a bit too much for my liking. The allure homme sport extreme was okay, i gave up looking and went with YSL L'Homme, can never go wrong there.
Anybody make their own cologne? I would really like to find an all natural or chemical free cologne that actually smells good. I had tinkered with the idea of some essential oils and a solid oil base. All the stuff out there that I've seen (Aubrey Organics, etc..) smells like patchouli or I dumped some bay rum or gin all over myself.
I'm currently wearing Bleu de Chanel. Its smooth and fresh. Not too strong. I like it.

this is what I dont understand why people, like my brother, spray a mist and then walk thru it, no need to make the entire room smell like you
also, might have been mentioned, but i hate it when people spray tons of cologne on themselves instead of hoping into the shower
yup, the spray should be on your skin for any hope of longevity.
so interestingly enough, the Norwegian Wood and Ikon smell similar, with the Wood being a bit sweeter/vanilla-y/creamier and the Ikon being a bit more peppery and cutting. The longevity of the Wood is about 4-6 hours tops on me and projects a decent amount at first but backs off considerable after the first hour or two. Ikon has incredible longevity, something like 10 hours easy, doesn't have aggressive projection, and has a very linear drydown.
I really like the Ikon a lot.
