So I've been wearing CdG2Man for awhile now and I love it. It feels a bit to heavy to wear in the spring/summer thought, so I am looking for something lighter.

The thing is, everyone and their brother seems to be wearing "x-designer citrus" scent. Thats why I want something different and something light, I don't want something that smells like apple or fruit though. Experts please help me out


This is what I've been looking at (please suggest more, flame or discuss):

Sandalo e The by Bois 1920
Bois Farine by L'Artisan Parfumeur

Oh, and I feel like I can drop some $$$ on a good bottle so that shouldn't be a problem.

I'll suggest three (I don't have much to say about the above two you mentioned... I haven't tried the Bois 1920 and Bois Farine didn't do anything for me when I tried it).

1. L'eau de L'artisan (L'artisan Parfumeur): Very crisp, very green, with just a hint of mint to keep it from smelling like a hayfield.
2. Bigarade Concentree (Frederic Malle): Citrus, for sure, but with kick and not at all the bland, sporty garbage you smell everywhere. It's very sharp, very crisp, and a little stinky (in a good way).
3. Balmain Monsieur: You can probably find this one for less than $20 USD (or 15 Euros). It's a hidden gem at a cheap price. Great woodsy, lemony burst. Think Creed Bois de Cedrat but with more lemon.

Geir by Geir Ness is light w/o smelling citrusy at all.
Carthusia pour Homme, very nice one from Profumi Carthusia in Capri, Italy.
Speaking of Capri, Soleil di Capri by Montale.
