    I live in southern California, so it's fairly warm most of the year. If I'm not mistaken, some of Croatia has a Mediterranean climate. Anyway, I like Roger and Gallet Extra Vieille, Guerlain Eau du Coq, and Eau Sauvage.

    YAAAAAYYY!!! Summer cologne thread again. End of winter soon, I hope.

    My list:

    Creed Erolfa - favorite aquatic in my collection
    Acqua di Parma Colonia - timeless classic
    Roger Gallet Extra Vielle - 200+ years old; they must be doing something right. I keep a bottle in my gym bag, too. Frequent reapplication may be happily necessary.
    Cartier Pasha Fraicheur Menthe - very nice take on mint
    Creed Neroli Sauvage - love this one year round, but the citrus notes are particularly appealing in warm weather

    I have sympathy for the idea of just wearing less scent when its hot, which is what I do in the spring or fall. If you live in a climate where summer temp's reach 100+ and/or is very humid for a couple of months or so, changing to a different kind of fragrance is very helpful. Of course we are months away from that heat right now, but I am travelling and just passed over the equator and that humid hot weather all comes back to me.

    These are some really good summer heat fragrances. I know most of these have been mentioned but they are heat tested and proven to work well-

    Mugler Cologne - as everyone says it just works well as a refreshing green scent.
    Chrome - In the years this classic has been out nobody has improved upon the steely cold, crisp drydown notes of the Chrome kind of fragrance.
    Kenzoair - very dry woody with a bite of anise - excellent in the heat.
    Chanel Allure Home Sport Cologne - (clear botttle) Smells just like grapefruit going on and seems like an Annick Goutal Hadrian wannabe but, the spicey Allure drydown that layers woods over vanilla mixes nicely for a grapefurit sherbert effect that works wonders in hot weather.
    Erolfa - the classiest sparkling aquatic there is in hot weather. I always get stopped wearing it - mostly older ladies, but hey - it works!

    Okay, so let's bring this one into 2012, guys! So, I live in Oklahoma where it is unbearably, miserably, hot and humid in the summer. Last year, temperature rose to 115 F and didn't drop below 100 F for ten solid weeks. So, while I too, feel that simply wearing less cologne IS a very good idea for the summer months, in some areas, regions like this one, I really feel that having at least one "summer scent" is very much the way to go. When just walking 50 ft. from your car to the solace of an air conditioned... anything, feels like being cremated alive, drenching you in sweat from head to toe, and making you contemplate suicide, and if you, like myself, must wear dress clothes to work, it's a very wonderful thing to feel and smell clean.

    I should mention that I'm a temporarily misplaced northerner, and a usual wearer of gourmands, and wonderfully unique (designer, yet to explore niche) scents. I first inhaled Mugler's Cologne in Macy's two days ago, unlike the fragrances I typically admire, the scent isn't edible, intoxicating, compelling or complicated. It smells wonderfully light, and fresh; "like summer's nemesis in a bottle," I thought. Bright, different, citrusy, and... clean. It's wasn't sharp or pretentious, nor did it smell stereotypical, tired, or played-out in any way. It was truly unique, but didn't scream it whatsoever. As a fragrance, the quiet, creative, underachiever in the back of the classroom; the one, who, rather than engage in banal discussion, prefers simply to gaze out the window upon the sun-dappled world below. The silent prodigy. I can see why this scent is so frequently labeled 'the fragrance for those who dislike fragrances'. To me, what makes Mugler's Cologne so exceptional is that it is nothing more than the smell of "pleasant"; no more, and no less. Coming from the same mastermind behind the powerful, dark, rich, and evocative, A*Men, Theirry Mugler ought to be lauded for having successfully created the quintessential yin for his unequivocal yang. Although many people have already praised this fragrance, when it comes to Cologne, its genius lies not in complicate details, but, rather, in the paucity of them. For some, the scent of simplicity is too complex to understand, and for this reason I will be making this Mugler's Cologne my signature summer scent. Light, breezy, mellow, cool, easy, fresh, clean and refreshingly delightful. All hail Mugler!

    The beautiful, otherworldly, fresh, lush, clean, futuristic-gleam of Mugler Cologne for the humid, dog days of summer and Terre D'Hermes for the other merely hot/warm ones. TDH is fantastic year-round though, providing a refreshing splash of bright, unique, elegant, refined, masculinity.

    How does the current formulation Cool water smell ?

    I remember smelling Cool water on my uncle some 5 years ago and I was absolutely stunned, it was so fresh, minty, herbal, salty and instantly reminded me of the ocean but I never really got around owning it, no idea why........

    I have to throw this little tidbit in, seeing as how you guys are talking about Cool Water. Personally, I love watermelon and every fragrance that I have tried that's supposed to have a watermelon note, doesn't, at least to my nose. "Cool Water Game" is a great little summer fragrance, and is the only one I have found that has a true watermelon note.

    I agree, it does have a strong watermellon note indeed.

    My latest discovery is L'eau par Kenzo wild edition. Albeit nothing wild about it, it is a rather nice airy scent.

    Yeah, I only saved about $12 over retail by purchasing a 3.4 EDT of Mugler Cologne on amazon the other day, but it did come in a small kit with a delectable shampoo/body wash that is like heaven when I use it after coming home from the gym and before bed! So fresh and so clean, clean!
