    Default Best fragrance for humid weather

    Hey guys, I'm going to Bali in April and wondering which fragrance from my collection I should take over that will work best in the humid climate. The ones I'm considering are:

    YSL Live Jazz
    Chanel Allure Homme Sport
    Chanel Allure Homme Blanche
    Dior Homme Sport
    Armani Acqua Di Gio

    Anyone got enough experience with humid weather to recommend?

    Definitely.

    Live Jazz is a masterpiece of the perfumer's art and especially hard to beat in hot humid conditions.

    Old Spice works wonderfully in humid weather.

    Yep I was leaning towards Live Jazz given the nice cooling effect it seems to have on hot days where i live, just wasnt sure if this was going to translate to humid heat as well...I think i've heard enough, Live Jazz it is!

    Thanks guys

    +1 This for its minty grapefruit freshness.

    From the list, definitely Live Jazz & ADG. Both are hot weather masterpieces.

    Live Jazz is a nice scent as described by previous posters, but I have problem with the longevity. I need to sample it again and see how it reacts on my skin when the weather gets hot here in the East Coast.

    I'd also pick Acqua Di Gio from the list if being common is not an issue. ADG is a refreshing scent with good longevity, which is perfect for hot places.

    Albeit I like Live Jazz and Allure Homme Sport, none that you mentioned. For the humidity, you need:

    L'Eau par Kenzo pour Homme by Kenzo - Initially, one is treated to a biting and sparkling blast of yuzo, somewhere between a grapefruit and a mandarin orange, with its lemon-like tangy and floral aspects. This sharp and bright citrus slowly pairs with ho leaf, which tinges the pseudo-lemon with its spicy and sweet, floral and rosewood overtones, yielding an almost lemon, furniture polish accord, morphing the stark citrus into a luscious smoothness. The refreshing, watery middle beckons. Here, in the heart, the pseudo-lemon is immersed in a bath of lotus flower, with its lovely, water lily greenness with a hint of mint, sharp and fresh ozone notes, as well as refreshful aquatic notes, with its faint, marine and mint accord, and steeps into a soothing lemonade. Pleasant white musk usurps the cool blend into the awaiting base, imparting its sweet and floral facets, and its cohort, green pepper, adds a kiss of earthiness before meandering to the light and airy drydown. A wonderful fragrance to be turned to in the heat of the summer, this fresh and crisp composition is a vibrant, green, lemony and woody scent, and has average longevity and projection. In the sweaty dog days of the summer, you need this!
