I have found that some scents actually need heat to allow them to blossom fully on the skin. I have quite a few blends that I have found quite meh until worn on warm skin or heat. I happen to have my comp set up in front of my little gas heater and often have it keeping my bot toasty while I work online.
Anyway, most recently, I ended up falling in love with Gucci Eau de Parfum because the heat warmed up my wrist whilst reading something and the sillage / complexity completely seduced me. I can imagine it being quite heady in warmer more temperate climates. I had the same problem with Coty Chanson du Soleil and Guerlain Terracotta Voile D'Ete.
This may explain why so many eaux and perfumes specifically directed towards being worn in warm / hot climates actually tend to rely upon the herbaceous notes as they tend to zing off warm skin without knocking you out / overwhelming like musk or vanilla can do.
Strongly herbaceous scents and eauxs like Guerlain Eau de Coq, Crown Perfumery Eau de Quinine, Gres Quiproquo, Crown Perfumery Town & Country, Dior Eau Sauvage / Diorella, Crown Perfumery Crown Imperial and Crown Perfumery Crown Fougere all tend to really come into their own and shine in the summer heat and on warm skin.
