Similar climate here. 95+% of my frags last quite well on my skin. Personally, OP should just focus on frags he likes and will be tolerable to him. From experience, weather and what to wear is more an issue for those who live in multi-season climes.
+1 for vetiver scents. They tend to be very tenacious, but still light and fresh smelling. Sycomore as mentioned is a smokey one, Tom Ford's Grey Vetiver is more fresh and citrusy. Terre d'Hermes is another.
