    Bulgari Aqua Marine

    YSL pour homme

    and (especially in scorching Las Vegas) any or all from the Bulgari "tea" line: red tea, white tea, green tea

    Guerlain Vetiver
    GIT/Cool Water
    Kouros is also a good choice for hot weather. One would not think, but it's true!

    YSL Live Jazz is similar, but not as 'loud' as Issey Miyake so it may be more appropriate when the weather gets real hot. Otherwise Bvlgari pour Homme, Bvlgari Aqua, XS by Paco Rabanne and Joop! Nightflight all get a good working in hotter weather from my wardrobe.

    Bulgari Aqua or Bulgari Aqua Marine
    Dolce and Gabbana Light Blue pour Femme
    Asprey Purple Water
    Creed Green Irish Tweed
    Creed Virgin Island Water
    Hermes Eau d'Orange Vert
    Jo Malone Lime, Basil & Mandarin

    Biagotti Acqua di Roma Uomo, or the luxury version: de Nicolai, Balle de Match. Zingy, zesty, fresh Grapefruit, really nice.

    A great and affordable lemon scent is Monsieur Balmain.

    Like classic scents? d'Orsay Etiquette Bleue

    Among Vetivers I'd suggest Adolfo Dominguez Vetiver hombre.

    Versace Man Eau Fraiche.


    it's a nice scent with character unusual for something suited to warm weather. a lot more personality than most of the boring aquatic/citrus summer scents around.
    current favourites: guerlain vetiver, trumper eucris, adp colonia
    latest swag: cdg man2, lolita lempicka au masculin
    next buys: keiko mecheri oliban, michael by michael kors

    Second the Mugler Cologne and the Monsieur Balmain. Both are wonderful. Signoricci may work for you as well. Another good recommendation IMO is Eau de Rochas pour Homme.

    All the Tommy Bahama scents are suitable for summer. I'm dying to try Very Cool as I've heard many good things about it.

    Right now I'm absolutely crazy about M7 Fresh. I didn't like it at first, but now I'm totally insane over it. I carry the bottle in my book bag so I can spritz on a little in the second half of my work day. I have been told that it's a delicious hot weather scent. It's midwinter where I am. I only hope I can make my bottle last long enough to find out if my friend who says it's a perfect summer cologne is right.

    Your Issey Miyake, MI, and Erolfa will be great for summer. Also check out Aqva, Guess Man, Higher, Carlos Santana.

    And I just tried last year's YSL Opium D'Orient and fell in love with it

    Good call on YSL M7 Fresh. It retains every bit of spicyness from the original, but it is really toned down. Excellent for evening/night parties when the weather is hot.
    Wanted: a cap of Bvlgari Thé Vert

    Wanted: L' Artisan Timbuktu or Fragonard Concerto

    If any one out there enjoys a mint fragrance that has lasting power I highly recommend "Menthe Moderne" by DSH Perfumes. $60.00 for 1oz of EDP.

    My other 2 favorites:
    Bigarade Concentree by Malle
    Balle Match by Patricia de Nicolai
