I couldn't find a summer frag for myself....
I tried out:
Issey Miakey Intense
CK One Summer 09
Givenchy Blue Label
Dior Homme Sport
Chanel Allure Homme Sport
Creed Virgin Island Water
Creed Green Irish Tweed
But I couldn't say that I really love any of these frags and so I want you to tell me about your favourite summer scents...
Maybe there is no summer scent for me?
Normally I love heavy oriental-woody scents....are there any oriental-woody summer scents?
Is it possible to wear frags like Gucci Envy and Gucci PH on very hot days?
Post Scriptum: Sorry for my bad english

My favourite summer/hot weather scents:
- YSL L'Homme
- Clinique Happy For Men
- Versace PH
- Bulgari Aqua
- Davidoff Silver Shadow Altitude
- Hermes Concentrée D'Orange Verte
- Davidoff Cool Water
- L'Eau D'Issey pour Homme
- Paco Rabanne XS Pour Homme
- Prada Infusion D'Homme
- Chanel Platinum Egoiste
These are some of my favourites for summer/hot weather. I live in a hot humid climate all year round so most of the frags i own are of the fresh/aquatic type. Out of the list i highly recommend Bulgari Aqua, Platinum Egoiste and Silver Shadow Altitude. But don't get me wrong, the rest on the list are very good too.
Gucci PH and Envy should be fine in hot weather. I wear them quite often in 32 Celsius weather. I don't believe in the whole winter/summer frag thing. If i did then i think i would have to get rid of half of my wardrobe because there's only one season in my country. Just wear what u like whenever u want.

I think you should give the fresh versions (fraicheur) of your beloved wood-orientals a try, many of the sweet wood-orientals have their lighter versions for the summer, you might end-up liking that.
I live in a tropical country, but I hate aquatic scents so much so it's harder for me to find a fragrance that suitable for my weather. Of all the scents you listed I only can stand Chrome because it's similar to my beloved CKOne. I think you should also go with scents that classified Wood Acromatic, they're not fresh in the way aquatics - Issey Miakey like - are and not too heavy to wear in summer like Oriental Wood scents.

That is exactly what I wanted to hear
I don't believe in the whole winter/summer frag thing.
Thank you for your tips...I think I'm going to give Hermes Concentrée D'Orange Verte and Geir Ness a try...maybe I also should give the EdT version of Guerlain L'Instant a second chance

There are no clear answers to when you should wear a fragrance, but there are widely accepted standards for the situation in which a fragrance is best suited. However, I like to think -- to each his own.
Summer reminds me of warmth, sunlight, and outdoors. So, I wear a fragrance that makes me feel good in the warm sunlight of the outdoors. You try it and see what fits into your idea of what the essence of summer is to you.

If you like oriental/woody fragrances, go with that for summer, just go for ones that aren't sweet. Sweet notes tend to go overpowering in the heat.
Explore some vetiver scents. Wicozani has a really great thread on vetiver scents somewhere...

A fragrance that fit into my idea of the essence of summer...a great post EnvYuS

My summer rotation right now is:
Ed Hardy Love and Luck
Emporio Armani Diamonds
Diesel Fuel for Life
Versace Man Eau Fraiche
One thats underrated IMO is the Cacharel. Pretty subtle but perfect for a summer night. And actually my favorite to wear during the day is actually Adidas Moves. On me it develops really nicely and my body heat really makes it project.
