    Okay so that's a top five of six. Must say that while my mainstays have been the traditional warm weather dry and citrusy frags, I've been enjoying experiments with orientals and animalic stinkers like Mazzolari Lui, Yatagan, Heritage and Equipage. The heat brings out aspects that I hadn't noticed before, love it.

    and the winner is: Eau d'Orange Verte.

    I keep a splash bottle of this in the freezer, and when I come back in from walking my dog in the afternoons and evenings I liberally splash on my head, neck, and face. Nothing feels better after an hour in the Texas heat....
