Please do not list your top 3 or top 10. Just your #1.
Terre d'Hermes EDT
Opium PH EDP
Jo Malone Lime Basil and Mandarin
For tropical heat, I'd probably go for Carthusia Mediterraneo.
I love a "summer scent" on hot weather (i can also like many on cold weather... just try using Pasha de Cartier Fraîcheur Menthe on winter):
AA Mentafollia - Guerlain
Eau d'Hadrian - A.Goutal
Sequoia - Comme des Garçons
Eau Sauvage - Dior
Lonestar Memories - Tauer (smoky leather!)
Theorema Uomo - Fendi
Eau de Lalique - Lalique
Thé Vert -R&Gallet
Lily of the Valley - Yardley
4711 - 4711/Muelhens
and a very special mention to the Hermès line which were born to be worn in the heat of the summer:
Eau de Merveilles edT
Eau d'Orange Vert
Un Jardin sur le Nil
Un Jardin en Méditerranée
Not everything has to be citrus or light, i love to wear in the summer:

Escada Sunset Heat for Men
I refuse to sink.
Atelier Cologne: Trefle Pur
Not exactly my favorites but the best for the purpose of this thread, which is projecting and lasting long in extreme humid conditions. I'm gonna say Banderas Blue Seduction and Black Seduction. There's something in these guys and I can't say for sure, but it may be the way the melon note in them is made. Especially in Blue Seduction. Having owned and tried my fair share of Summer frags from citrus to aquatics and everything in between, I've noticed these 2 to be beasts in the humidity. Best of all, they're not out of place on smell alone in the Summer, and they're both quite unique from the rest.
Bergamotto Marino by Gianfranco Ferre.
Balle de Match
Formal: Mugler Cologne
Sexy: Dolce&Gabbana pour homme
Colonia and Colonia Assoluta by Acqua di Parma!!! Works very well in the heat for me!!!
Central Park by Bond No.9.....This is amazing on my skin.....Last all day.....even in the heat!!!
Hugo Energise. It's not my absolute favorite in my collection, but certainly the one that works best in the heat for me.
No doubt I have a huge list, since the mentioned weather is something I face with almost all year round. But, I think the one that works splendidly in the hottest and most humid of days here is Zeste Mandarine Pamplemousse. Needless to say, you would have to enjoy your citrus to like this one.
If however you want to refrain from citrus, my next vote goes to Gris Clair.
Kenneth Cole Reaction. Can't help it, I just love this in hot weather. I could wear it every day in the summer, but I force myself to switch off so that I don't burn out on it, which really isn't a hardship because there are others that I like almost as well and then I can look forward to wearing Reaction again.
4711 . It's so light, i usually re- apply a few times per day.
Guerlain Homme L`Eau
As in only one.....booo!
If I had to choose one, It'd be Selection Verte.
If I can have two, I add Concentre D'Orange verte.
Colonia by Acqua di Parma really seems to be brought out with heat. Also Red Vetyver by Montale, seems to intensify when you sweat
In my wardrobe, it's Ambre Sultan by Serge Lutens

Roger & Gallet Extra Vieille
I live here in Houston, TX where it is basically the tropics, so this summer I have found myself bathing in EDCs. Lately I've been carrying a bottle of 4711 to splash on and it feels good and smells great. Also, it makes me think about what is the HG of EDCs???
