    I live in New Orleans which can be quite tropical and muggy. I have found Givenchy's "Blue Label" to be really wonderful. Some on this forum have even inferred, ....so why spring for "Erolfa" when you can have " Blue Label"?

    And yes, Lanvin L'Homme is also quite expensive, I recently bought a 100ml bottle of it but, you know what... I got it for only Php 1,100. You just have to look at the right places... There are bargains all around...

    If you can find it, Lanvin Oxygene Homme, is IMHO by far the best aquatic fragrance, and very long lasting in my experience.

    hi nitromusk. do you really think Oxygene is an aquatic? as i recall it is very musky (and, as my dad so perfectly put it, a bit "ripe" :-)

    however it certainly is long-lasting.

    things that i have worn in very hot weather successfully (keeping in mind of course that longevity goes down quite sharply the hotter the weather... so i tend to be more budget-oriented when i'm in the tropics since i need to spray on more!):

    - kenzo pour homme (the eau fraiche or fresh variants are more aquatic than the original, but last a bit less long)
    - l'eau par kenzo (absolutely the perfect scent for hot climes, but good luck getting it to last...)
    - paul smith "story" (a sour dry vetiver... perfect for the tropics)
    - l'eau d'issey (not that common outside europe and the US; you will definitely stand out)
    - YSL pour homme (an oldie but a classic; potent citrus blast!)
    - swiss army (good and, as s/o else has pointed out, cheap)
    - halston unbound
    - paris hilton "just me" (ADG clone with an extra dash of watermelon)
    - michael jordan 23 (a budget cologne that you can find cheap in the US but is also available online; very pleasant unpretentious ADG-ish juice but with a slighly more bitter edge)
    - kouros cologne sport (the most "fresh" and dry of the kouroses.... note however that the original wears extremely well in warm weather too!)

    and my all-time favorite for HOT sweaty days...

    JOOP!!!

    (just kidding. eeek.)

    I`ve tried a lot of aquatics, because I find them quite wearable in the spring/summer season.

    Here`s my choice:
    - Bvlgari AQVA or newest edition of that fragrance - AQVA Marine;
    - RL Polo Blue;
    - Davidoff Cool Water & it`s summer editions.
    My current Fall-Winter rotation: Baldessarini EdC - Canali Men - Dior Homme Sport - Gucci PH I - Guerlain Homme - Issey Miyake L`Eau D`Issey PH Intense - Lalique Encre Noir - Loewe Solo - Terre d`Hermes - YSL Rive Gauche PH
