    Default What's your summer rotation?? (let's limit the count at 8)

    Spring just broke this week in NC and I'm soooo excited about switching to my summer rotation soon. I'd love to hear what others are planning to wear in the coming seasons. Here's mine:

    L'eau Par Kenzo
    Nightflight by Joop
    F PH by Ferragamo
    Hugo XY

    I know what you're thinking...what an odd combo of designer fragrances!

    About once every twenty-fours, same as always.

    Seriously, though, the climate here is very temperate, it rarely gets below 0C or above 25C, so orientals never get too much and it all stays much the same as it would be otherwise.

    Wow!! That is bold! I would never imagine wearing A*men, Gaultier2 and LLaM in the summer. In fact, I've been thinking I'll have to lay off Rochas Man until things cool off. You'll have to let me know how that turns out. Lol

    - Bulgari Aqua
    - Hermes Concentree d'Oraange Verte
    - Solo Loewe
    - Chanel Platinum Egoiste
    - Versace Pour Homme
    - Gucci Pour Homme II
    - Eau Sauvage
    - Paul Smith Story

    For some reason, sweet oriental / gourmand fragrances work really well on my skin under the heat or at least summer nights (I never have winter in my country) as opposed to the annoying aquatic. However, I do lie about A*Men though, only wore it 1 time to "set thing straight" with the bitch a.k.a my so-call ex boss. I broke the my A*Men decant that same day. It was a really hot day and that bitch was very terrify

    Eau de Cartier and L'eau d'Issey fall in and out of favor.

    Just added the sunny green leather of EL Azuree... hoping to add the lemony Chanel No. 5 Eau Premiere and one more green galbanous/vetivery floral like 19. I'll be looking at your choices and suggestions.

    I've been contemplating purchasing Opium Eau d'Orient (2006, 2007 or the 2008 edition) blind since there aren't any places to sample it. I really enjoy the original but I find its kinda thick or heavy and not something I would wear daily. Would you say this is more fresh and light? Could this be something I would wear everyday?

    I'm interested in Solo Loewe. What kind of scent is this? It's from a spanish house, is it not?

    I'll probably also wear Dior Homme too. I know I probably shouldn't but I doubt i'll be able to resist.

    I'm planning on getting something else in before the Summer too.

    Infusion d'Homme
    Tom Ford Grey Vetiver

    Question- For some reason I really want gaultiers le male summer. I have not smelled the summer versions. I'm a fan of the regular version. Is it any good?

    For the hottest, most humid days, which is pretty much all summer where I live, I wear:

    Bigarade Concentree
    Angeliques sous la Pluie
    GIT
    Live Jazz
    Eau d'Orange Verte

    Anything else turns into chemical goo on me in the summer...

    Chanel's EDC (Well, once I get around to buying it that is )
    Eau Sauvage
    Vetiver
    Grey Flannel
    No. 19
    Timbuktu
    Mitsouko
    Diorella
    If fragrance has a gender, so does all art.

    My ideal 8 (I don't own all of them, yet)

    Amouage Ciel Man
    Amouage Reflection Man
    Creed Erolfa
    Le Roy Soleil Homme
    Versace PH
    Olivier Durbano Turquoise
    Hugo XY
    MPG Bois de Turquie

    These are two I've yet to wear in the summer but imagine would be excellent. If they don't turn horrible in the heat, they could end up on the above list in place of Hugo XY and Bois de Turquie (which I imagine may not fare well on the hottest of days. We shall see)

    C&S Oxford and Cambridge
    MPG Racine

    Another that I'm contemplating adding to my wardrobe: the very sheer, very element of air oriented "Wicken 3000" by Six Scents.

    I can't wait to try this on a really warm, sunny day.

    I really think more people should check this scent out.
