1.) CK ONE SUMMER, $44
"I instantly think of a hard-core surfer splashing this one after he's been hitting the waves. Now, we're both sitting on the beach sipping cold Coronas with lime."
2.) VEGAS PLAYBOY, $15
"The first whiff is pretty intense and wild — definitely the kind of thing you'd smell in Vegas. But then it fades to a nice powdery scent. It might be too mature a cologne for most of the players I know."
3.) BOND NO. 9 NEW YORK BROOKLYN, $220
Light and sweet. It smells a lot like grapefruit, with a bit of cedar mixed in. Kind of reminds me of all those hipster boys I've dated."
4.) AVEDA MEN PURE-FORMANCE AROMA SPRAY, $65
"I picture a guy who's not into cologne wearing this. It's spicy yet citrusy all at once. The essential oils make it seem calming, too — like a trip to the spa.
5.) 212 ON ICE CAROLINA HERRERA 2009 LIMITED EDITION, $59
"The clean and crisp scent seems perfect for an outdoor barbecue. I feel as if I'm getting hints of mint and incense too. This is how a man should smell in the summer."
1.) BURBERRY THE BEAT, $65
"It smells very classy — clean and pure. I'm picturing it on a guy who spent the day in meetings and then spritzed some on before heading out for a few drinks to relax and have fun."
2.) KAPSULE WOODY, $110
"It reminds me of camping. I can see a man who enjoys outdoor activities wearing this at night when he's cleaned up and taking me out."
3.) HUGO ELEMENT, $65
"The light, citrus smell makes me think of being on a tropical island with my man. It's perfect for spring because it smells good without being too overpowering or in your face."
4.) ZIRH IKON, $65
"This is ideal for a guy's guy. It's something you could spray on before meeting your buddies for beer and that would still work if you went out later. If a guy approached me wearing this, I'd definitely be willing to talk."
5.) JOHN VARVATOS ARTISAN, $75
"Right off the bat, I get a heavy dose of orange plus a few exotic spices. It's very comforting, warm, and masculine. After a hard day work, I would love to come home to my guy wearing this."
6.) F BY FERRAGAMO POUR HOMME BLACK, $75
"It seems like the kind of scent a CEO would wear. Very serious and hardcore, perfect for a guy in a business suit — especially since a little goes a long way."
