    Question Sexiest frag for HOT HOT HOT weather!!

    Forgive me if this particular question has been asked before (it probably has), but can anyone recommend a SEXY, and SEDUCTIVE scent that can be worn in hot (99+ degrees Fahrenheit) weather? I have no problem coming up with sexy frag recommendations for cool weather (just about any good woody oriental would do), but I think it's harder to come up with a SEXY & SEDUCTIVE (not just "fresh" or "clean") scent for HOT, summer weather. From my own personal 'drobe, I'm thinking maybe Imperial Millesime, Silver Mountain Water, Live Jazz, or Colonia Assoluta.

    I'm open to any and all suggestions, mates.

    My personal favorite for the hot weather is going to have to be Kouros Fraicheur. It thrives in hot weather. Fresh out of the shower sex in a bottle. rjrober22 nailed it in his review by describing it as "Fresh, Clean and Dirty at the same time".

    Hands down: Frederic Malle's Musc Ravageur it's sexy and it's HOT HOT HOT !

    My summer staple is Kenneth Cole Reaction. It's never cloying & it always smells fantastic.

    Also...L'eau D'Issey is also great in hot weather ONLY if you use the "walk through" method. I've never smelled anything that's so fresh, and yet so headache-inducing as well. The walk through method seems to be the ONLY way to apply this.

    Almost any vetiver scent or anything with a rich vetiver note.

    Mitsouko has become a big summer favourite, it has a gorgeous vetiver drydown.

    You can't go wrong with MI, though it tends to go pretty quickly because of it's fairly poor longevity. Other "HOT HOT HOT" weather frags I like are Baldessarini by Hugo Boss (awesome frag, but way overpriced and it has the worst longevity of any frag I've tested... it makes MI seem like it lasts for an eternity), Magnetism by Escada (it wears very well on me in the warmer weather), Guess for Men (refreshing green apple notes with a nice dry musk drydown), and Creed's Acier Aluminum (it wears great in any weather from sub-zero to 115 degrees). Other choices you might want to consider: Unforgivable by Sean John (an MI ripoff, but smells a bit of orange soda got spilled in it), or one of the hundreds of Curve variations (if you can stand them) or Nautica Voyage (smells like it could be a Curve). Hope this helps!

    I second tigrushka regarding the vetiver notes. My current favorite is Guerlain Vetiver Sport.
    I also think Eau Sauvage (Dior) is superb. Luckily, I have no longevity problems with it. In fact, the drydown is sexy like a light grey Dior suit.
    Also, Armani Eau Pour Homme and YSL Pour Homme.

    What about Platinum Egoiste?

    I tested it yesterday in the evening, it's very fresh and I ve heard that the girls like this. I searched for it in google and on one page I read its called

    "The girls orgasm"

    Don't know if its true but have a try!! And tell me

    Live Jazz and Colonia Asulta are good.

    I like wearing Chrome. It's aquatic/fresh/woody smell is quite appealing in the heat. The metalic side of it is almost refreshing. Azzaro Chrome is always a good choice.

    Default Re: Sexiest frag for HOT HOT HOT weather!!

    Aqua Motu - modern marine with a surprising warm sand drydown, never cloying yet unique

    and maybe
    Obsession Night for men by CK

    also
    Code PH Giorgio Armani

    and
    Burberry Brit for men

    I picture a 'sexy' fragrance to be somewhat 'aromatic', to contain vanilla/tonka bean or whatever... to remain fresh and to be masculine at the same time. So these are my picks which endure the hot weather very well

Now, with that vote of confidence from Stuffman, I will!

    Couldn't agree with you more, Tigs!
    I love Mitsouko always. In the summer I like to wear the lighter EDT. Mitsouko always feels right!

    Other suggestions:
    Vetiver Tonka (Hermessece)
    Poivre Samarcand (Hermessence)
    Le Parfum de Therese (Editions de Parfum)
    Eau Sauvage (Dior)
    Shalimar Eau Leger (Guerlain)
    Vetiver (Guerlain) - try layering it with Mitsouko, not that Mitsouko needs any improvements... But it has an interesting result nevertheless.

    And from my own collection (Ayala Moriel Parfums):
    Fetish
    Sabotage
    Charisma
    ArbitRary
    - you can now search the notes for these not only on my own website, but also on Basenotes' Fragrance Directory!

    Well, I think it depends on what you wanna have...

    A sexy scent more on the fresh or on the guarment side!!

    I suggest "The Dreamer", its very wearable in summer, its sexy, sensual ad very smooth, don't overapply it!!

    I highly recommend Eau de Merveilles. It smells like clean skin sunbathing under blue skies with the waves rolling in. It's slightly salty and has a little citrus at the opening but then it's all skin (I am sure it's their ambergris accord which to me is pure heroin). Guys this isn't even remotely feminine. It's 100% delicious.

    I also wear L'Artisan's Premier Figuier in the heat. It was my sent of the day yesterday and I can still smell it on my wrist. It's very green. I think it's a grounding scent.

    Of course M7 Fresh is perfect in the heat. Think Fruit (there is some debate on what kind...I think berry, others think citrus, how about both?) and oud wood. This isn't the medicinal type of oud wood like Montale's oud series (sorry Vijay but I just don't get them yet but I am trying). This is a perfectly fresh Summer scent that starts getting sexier as the day gets warmer. It starts off very fruity and wakes you up. As the oud starts surfacing, the tone of the scent seems to get warmer and sexier. By the end of the day it is almost all oud and a light musk. It's never overpowering or cloying or even too heavy. It remains pretty much close to the skin as it dries down. The compliments I get by the end of the day, usually from beautiful women, oh,
    this is a winner!

    I can't finish without mentioning another of my all time favorites, Comptoir Sud Pacifique's L'Homme/Leau De Governeur with it's wonderful Summery spices. It starts off with a blast of bergamot and pepper! This baby is loaded with nutmeg/mace and bergamot and lemon. This one also gets lots of compliments.

    To all those mentioned I would like to add Declaration (Cartier). I think the "essence" lasts longer but either one will do.

    Default Re: Sexiest frag for HOT HOT HOT weather!!

    Actually, there are four (possibly 5) versions of Declaration. There is the regular one and then Declararion Essence, Declaration Eau Genereuse, Declaration Bois Blue and then there is the mysterious Declaration Edition Pristige (which may or may not be a different edition from the original). All of them created by Jean Claude Elena. I am trying to gather samples of all varieties so I can do a comparison. Anybody want to contribute to the experiment? I should have a sample of the Eau Genereuse coming in the mail. Know of someone selling samples of the others? Just let me know.

    I didn't mention this earlier but I love Declaration in all forms. I have tested these many times and think they are great for hot weather. At the moment, the closest fragrance store to me is about three hours away! To me the BO note (cumin and cardemom) is excuisite and not too funky.

    Hi,

    I do find the Eau de Cologne range from Molinard perfect for summer especially the Vetyver, France and the Verbena they leave warmth on the skin while staying very fresh - reapplying is the perfect gesture for summer and eau de cologne is the perfect concentration - it also comes in 500ml bottle great for big splashes super quality here too.

    Cool Re: Sexiest frag for HOT HOT HOT weather!!

    BY THE SEASHORE: Erolfa! It's superb. It's also rather odd, but outside of the range of sea breezes, it's (imho) rather ho-hum.

    BY THE SANDS OF THE SAHARA OR LAS VEGAS: (Where the sun blasts away but the humidity is bearable): Haven't the foggiest, you tell me.

    IN THE JUNGLE OR URBAN JUNGLE; WHEN BOTH HUMIDITY AND HEAT SKYROCKET: Again, I wish I knew. I'll let you know as soon as I get a hold of Miller Harris Tangerine Verte and the like, my contiuing battle to find a citrus that's both good and long lasting.

    Montale - not that I have tested them for subject purposes: Montale Aoud Lime just evokes the imagination! Aoud as such is a rather sexy note by itself! Some say that they do not pick up the lime. To my own surprise I notice a lot of lime instead! It is heavier than usual in perfumery, and noticeable for hours - stunning!

    While I do not find Acier Alumnium (mentioned before) sexy as such - showering with the gel plus a little cologne makes me feel very fresh after a long hot day, wide awake, and rather self assured. That makes it sexy!

    Skin hot from the sun plus Kouros - the original - are a perfect match!

    Alternative: wearing nothing, just enjoying what your partner wears, will ideally top it all!

    I just got my sample of Serge Lutens MKK in the mail today and I'm trying it out for the first time tonight at a friend's cocktail party.....in 90 degree plus weather. I can already tell that I'm going to be addicted to this stuff. Reminds me of Alexander McQueen's Kingdom......

    This stuff REEKS of sex....pure and animalistic, and naughty! LOVE IT! Perfect for a SCORPIO!

    Do I dare make a special trip to Paris just for this? I know they wish it to be exclusive....but please.....someone in the US should carry this!
