Best Men's Summer Fragrances: Top 5 List:
[01:03] #1: Creed Aventus
This 2010 release is a high-end boutique fragrance that has become enormously popular in the fragrance community.
It's very expensive, at nearly 400 dollars per 50 ml bottle.
Aventus is a rich fragrance with great projection. Its dominant note is the tropical hit of pineapple in its head, which carries on through the drydown. A hint of cucumber in the heart strengthens its summery quality.
Birch in its base creates a slight smokiness.
Another quality of Aventus that suits it well to the summer is that it responds well to heat on the skin.
It hasn't necessarily suffered from its own success yet. Even though it's popular in the fragrance community, it's not commonly encountered otherwise.
High potency means that you only need one, maybe two sprays at most.
A wide age range can wear this scent successfully.
As an especially rich fragrance, Aventus is suited primarily to the night.
[04:09] #2: Giorgio Armani Acqua di Gio
This is a longstanding classic which became a victim of its success in the late nineties and early noughties.
Nowadays, it's making a big comeback, having receded into the background for more than a decade.
It's very approachable, a great daytime fragrance for the office.
The key notes are calone, a synthetic aldehyde with a fresh air scent, and ambergris, achieved using ambroxane.
Because of this, Acqua di Gio is an unmistakably summer fragrance.
[06:37] #3: Calvin Klein CK2
A relatively subtle scent, this 2016 release is a very approachable, fresh, and light fragrance.
Like Aventus, it has a good response when your skin gets hot.
It has a mineral, chalky note, like a stone patio just after it's been wet by a hose.
This mineral note, alongside violet, makes for a fragrance that is light and refreshing rather than deep.
It's extremely versatile, able to be worn by just about anyone.
It's also an affordable fragrance, available for about $40-50 per bottle.
[08:15] #4: Acqua Di Parma Blu Mediterraneo
With a citrus head and cedar base, Cedro is a sophisticated fragrance.
Besides summer, it also works well in the daytime of spring and fall, especially spring, owing to the citrus.
For CP, it brings back a perfect memory of the French Riviera. To him, the cedar, citrus, and aromatic basil make for what the French call a "Madeleine de Proust."
Paul discovered this fragrance while looking for a summer counterpart to Penhaligon's Opus 1870.
Opus is a strong cedar scent which is phenomenal in the winter, whereas Cedro's citrus notes lend it summer wearability.
[09:47] #5: Davidoff Cool Water
The "young upstart" counterpart to Acqua di Gio, Cool Water has very overt cologne notes.
Chiefly, this is noticeable as synthetic aldehydes that create the impression of a seabreeze.
As it has less depth than the others, it is suited to young men in their teens and early 20s.
This is also the least expensive out of the five, costing $12-15 per 75 ml bottle.
Not much else is discernable, besides the subtle presence of ambergris in the base.
