    As far as Fa/Wi, any particular scents you already like that I could get a better feel for what you're looking for, [MENTION=1998]MaxMan[/MENTION]?

    I have used several different fragrances for different seasons, so I certainly have some that *I* recommend, but I'd like to hear some of your input/tastes/etc first, if possible.
    [MENTION=4615]yoyorobbo[/MENTION]. My only experience is with Calvin kleins encounter. I thought it was pretty good. It's had a nice woody smell after a whole.

    So it's a good spring summer scent. What would you rec for fall winter? I like woody smells around those seasons.

    One thing that's odd, if you've ever smelled the women's version of D&G Light Blue, they are near-identical. Unisex, I guess. Maybe the drydown differs to make them unique. Dunno. They are both very clean, sweet citrusy scents. Nice.

    Lacoste *Style In Play* (red)? Or the newer red/white/green/blue polo shirt-styled bottles?

    First one that comes to mind is 212 Men (Carolina Herrera). It's always called-out as freshly-cut grass. I get it... I think. It's a citrusy-green scent that really is pretty nice. Never nice enough to my nose to own it, but to each his own. Might wanna give it a whiff.




    Lacoste Essential (the regular non-sport *green* one) might work for you too. I think they call it a tomato leaf note, so maybe not "grass" per se, but it's pretty green all around, IMO.

    Others that might work for you in this fresh/green regard are some of the veitivers on the market. A biggie (both in legend and price) would be Creed's Original Vetiver. It has a near-clone in the much cheaper Mugler Cologne. They are both very nice, but to me they can get a little bit too soapy. Again, try them first for sure before buying.

    Another pricy option that many claim has a grass/green opening is Bond No.9 High Line. I have not tried that one at all, so no personal XP there.

    If all else fails, there's this:

    Typically only use a scented beard oil (got a three-pack sample from these guys - http://www.etsy.com/shop/BeardOil?re...-header-avatar), but occasionally use Inis Cologne as my wife likes it.
    I also picked up the Crystal Rock thing after reading about it on here. It works great for me. I'm still trying to figure out which anti-perspirant that I prefer to use with it. I always buys toiletries in bulk (a big one for the house, smaller one for the RV, and a tiny one for the suitcase) so I'm still using up my older deodorant/antiperspirant combo sticks.

    I still need to up my cologne game. So far I'm just trying a few samples from my Birchbox thing, and waiting for someone to sell some on here, heh.

    No way re counter-tops. Scent is one of the two areas I need to broaden my horizon on, the other being watches. Currently for scents I have the Versace and a curve that my wife goes gaga for when I wear so it stays in rotation.

    Have you guys tried their Eau Fraiche?

    BTW, personally my SotD is once again GIT. Been reaching it for it since Spring has finally *sprung* around these parts. That is until tonight, when we are expected to get 1-3 inches of .... SNOW!

    Keep your snow [MENTION=4615]yoyorobbo[/MENTION] lol. I haven't Eau Fraiche. You rec?
