    Some great suggestions so far, I would add Acqua di Parma Blu Mediterraneo Tuscan Cypress. Beautiful for summer but not aquatic if one is that way averse.

    Creed Millisime Imperial - some say it has a watermelon note, and others call it an aquatic. If it agrees with your skin, you will get compliments.

    Montale Red Vetyver - I really think this one shines with heat. A calmer spicy scent and I got compliments when walking by two ladies, on separate occassions.

    Tauer's L'Air du Desert Morocain - an all-year scent, something about the heat can seem to reactivate it after you think it is gone.

    Montale Aromatic Limes - I think this one is more wearable than the Aoud Limes, at least it was for me. I dont disagree with Aromatic Limes being a great summer scent, but if the Auod is too strong, this one is a good alternative. Not like Green Irish Tweed by Creed, but then again, it has some similarity at times.

    Acqua di Parma Colonia - I love this scent, and though it may peter out after 4 hours, it is very, very nice, very civilized, very wearable in summer.

    I hear a lot of good things about Aramis Bermuda Tonic, though I've never tried it. Mugler Cologne is the most versatile all around fragrance you can buy, perfect for summer. I really, really liked Paul Smith Story when I was in Jamaica this summer, the heat and humidity really brought out the vetiver and other green notes. Another recommendation I have to make is for an extremely cheap, extremely long lasting silage monster that I really like and believe is appropriate for summer...Perry Ellis Portfolio.

    A few years ago I would have said D&G Masculine, but in recent years I have not found anything that I like better than Acqua di Parma Colonia.

    Royal, where can I find Sunset Heat, not online that is, no one has it.

    I sometimes see Sunset Heat at Marshall's/Ross/TJ Maxx and most discount perfume shops.

    My addition to the thread is Eternity Summer (especially the 2008 and 2006 versions). It tends to smell chemical but damn I love it in the summer.

    Really good for hot summer, I like the wetness of eau more, but it just can't last.
    Concentre, though, smells far too dry/parched in cold dry air, whereas eau still smells wet in cold air.
    Concentre for summer!

    This thread has been up for a couple of days and got me thinking. Aside from what I personally wear, I think that Kenzo, as a house, pretty much has the summer scents covered. All of their frags have a summer quality, even the spicier ones feel fresh and clean to me.

    What makes a scent good/bad for summer? Would SMN Acqua di Cuba be a good summer scent?

    Interesting question, mrshackleford. I imagine it has a lot to do with one's environment. For me, the oppressive, drenching, soupy air of a Savannah summer has me wearing frags that simply feel light on my skin. Anything cloying or thick is just adding insult to injury in our kind of summer. There are some frags that come alive with a light sweat, and I'd guess that for folks with less humid summers, that might be an attraction. What do you think?
