    Etro Shaal Nur and Comme des Garcons Ouarzazate have been my usual anytime summer staples for a few years, this year I am wearing Parfums de Nicolaï Le Temps d'Une Fête and vintage Coty L'Aimant quite a bit as well. I think a recently acquired bottle of vintage Carven Ma Griffe will be in heavy rotation, too.

    For sultry summer nights I'm thinking the new Rochas Femme.

    It's really unique, which is brilliant. I had a sort of odd relationship with it first; didn't quite dare to wear it and now I've gone crazy for it.

    I go very light in summer. I wear the heck out of:

    O de Lancome
    Un Air de Samsara
    Pecksniff's Grapefruit EdP
    Cristalle
    Opium Fleur de Shanghai
    Le Dix
    Diorissimo
    Miss Dior EdC


    On reflection, I should really try some of my heavier scents to see how they shape up, summer-wise.

    Thanks for bumping this, soirdelune, a reminder for me add Quartz, by Molyneux. To quote myself from the sotd thread - "it completely transforms in the heat and does magical things. Crisp and exhilarating, tailored and chic; one of my favorite citrussy green florals for summer."

    L de Lolita Lempicka Fleur de Corail

    I have to second kewart on the Ivoire de Balmain-what a work of art that one is!Mountainear mentioned another of my summer favorites-Fleur de Corail.I also enjoy Weekend by Burberry in hot weather and Cabotine de Gres is a great inexpensive option for lovers of green floral chypres.

    I enjoyed this thread from last summer, so I'm bumping it to see if you ladies (and gents) have any new favorites in your summer rotation. I'm just starting out myself, but here's a few that I've worn that I think I'll be coming back to again and again as the weather gets warmer:

    Chanel - No. 5 Eau Premiere (all seasons for me!)
    Chanel Les Exclusifs - Bel Respiro
    Ineke - Balmy Days and Sundays
    Lolita Lempicka - Coral Flower (Fleur de Corail)
    MPG - Bahiana
    either TDC Osmanthus or Hermessences Osmanthe Yunnan
    TDC - Sel de Vetiver
    Hermessences Vanille Galante
    I Profumi di Firenze - Brezza di Mare
    Bvlgari Omnia Crystalline

    I'm with you on this. I wear the same ones...plus I'm always freezing in the air conditioning.

    I've hardly gotten to my spring rotation -- it hasn't been too hot. But summer would be:

    Fred Hayman Touch
    Gabrielle Sabatini
    Mackie
    Ma Griffe
    Trussardi Skin
    Cabaret
    Jolie Madame
    Senso
    Tuxedo
    273 Rodeo Dr.
    Fragonard Arielle
    Climat


    obviously, I leave a BIG trail behind me...

    Oh, and I shouldn't forget La Perla Parfum Prive and vintage Coty l'Aimant

    Aqua Allegoria Mentafollia (arrived today)
    Aqua Allegoria Figue-Iris
    Eau de Givenchy
    Marc Jacobs Lemon *Splash*
    Quartz by Molyneux

    All of the above are going to the front of the shelf for warm summer days. I wear a lot of my frags year round, though.

    if you feel like committing what I call "indole abuse" -- absolutely smelling up every space you are in in the hot weather, try these three:

    Fracas
    DK Gold
    VCA Murmure

    I know it's politically incorrect to invade people's air space in this manner, but I'm a perfume imperialist.

    Rednails, I LOVE those indolic florals on summer evenings.

    I have been enjoying the Jailia the most this summer (citrus, honey, patchouli, very sunny) and really want the Datura Blanche (indolic floral, melt into the heat and dance smell) and Mure et Musc Extreme (fresh, and somehow really great, I do not understand why I like it so much, it doesn't seem like something I'd like but it's SO GOOD), I think that these will one day be summer staples though I don't expect to be able to buy both this summer.

    Great thread!

    My summer scents:

    Isabey Gardenia
    I Profumi di Firenze Brezza di Mare
    Miller Harris Fleurs de Sel
    Profumi del ForteApuana
    Apres l'Ondee
    Virgin Island Water
    Six Scents, Series 2 No.5 (fennel-based and so fresh--like a garden with morning dew)
    Le Temps d'Une Fete
    DelRae Coup de Foudre
    Ormonde Jayne Frangipani Absolute
    Heirbas de Ibiza (For those sweltering hot days. I think this one will go in the fridge)

    Wow...I love my summer scents!! I've had a hankering for them since March, so I've been doing some buying (FB and decants) to get ready.

    Edit: I forgot my beloved EL Private Collection Tuberose-Gardenia. I am saving for the parfum.

    Like others I pretty much wear the same stuff... a clear summer favorite is Amouage Lyric Woman, also Chergui (which is much more beguiling in summer). Jardin du Nil by MPG is one I hardly ever wear, but would not want to miss on a really hot summer day, if it calls my name.

    I keep hearing how this really works well in the heat. Fingers crossed we have a hot summer so I can put it to the test!

    Penhaligon's Lily of the Valley
    Annick Goutal Les Nuits d'Hadrien
    Creed Royal Water

    Those for running around during the day when it's super hot, if I decide to wear fragrance at all.

    How nice that this got bumped :-) I see I posted it a year ago now, wow.
    For me, it's Fidji, still Apres L'Ondee and Bois D'armenie. I live in the Bay, so summer is often our 'cool' time of year. Hehe. No hot weather yet.
