    Question Wearing perfume in a tropical climate - advice please?

    I am traveling to Southeast Asia for vacation next month. Which fragrance in my wardrobe should I bring with me? I have never tried my perfumes in a warm and humid climate. I probably will bring only 2 or 3 for my trip. I will need something for a relaxing day in the sun, and something for formal dinners. Which fragrances that are not in my wardrobe work great in a tropical climate?

    My wardrobe (Thanks to TwoRoads for pointing this out):
    Habit Rouge
    A*Men
    M7
    Acqua di Gio
    Terre d'Hermes
    Cool Water
    Concentre d'Orange Verte
    Shalimar
    Mitsouko
    Timbuktu
    L'Air du Desert Marocain

    Thank you for your advice.

    We cannot see your wardrobe.

    If you have hidden your wardrobe, please go to the 'settings' feature in My Wardrobe, uncheck the Hide Wardrobe box and save the new setting.

    I live in Nigeria where its hot (29-36 Centigrade) and humid almost all year round (a bit like SE Asia). You can take along whatever you like, but perhaps spritz on less than you usually would in your home climate. Whilst your scents may yield parts of their character previously hidden or unnoticed by you, due to the tropical temperature, they will not necessarily become overpowering. Furthermore, we in the tropics like our (and others') sillage bombs, as long as they smell nice, and since you have a great wardrobe you won't have any negative feedback at all. Have a great trip.

    In hot humid weather, Terre d'Hermes turns on me and becomes very cloying.
