    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:
    Terre d'Hermès
    Eau de Merveilles edT
    Eau d'Orange Vert
    Un Jardin sur le Nil
    Un Jardin en Méditerranée

    Another note:
    Not everything has to be citrus or light, i love to wear in the summer:
    MKK by Serge Lutens
    Musc Ravageur - Malle
    Fracas -Piguet
    Opium PH edP - YSL
    Fahrenheit - Dior
    Attrape-Coeur - Guerlain

    no, i don't have a top 1

    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.

    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.

    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???

    Azzaro Chrome. If you are talking really hot and humid weather, where you may be active as well - well, most other scents just wash away or conk out, whereas Chrome just keeps hanging in there.

    I'm pretty sure I'd wear Chrome in that situation, even if I didn't like it much.

    Aqua Marine by Bvlgari has been very faithful to me thus far this summer. I'd say it is the most tenacious summer scent I've owned, along with Dune for Men by Dior.

    Another really good tropical scent I tried recently, that works, is Etat Libre d'Orange's Josephine Baker. The opening pineapple sweetness is perfect, though it does dry down to something that is more common in fragrances for ladies (or girly, like some may put it); still, a good pineapple fragrance is always welcome on my skin. Come to think of it, it's really quite unisex to my nose, looking at what has been put out in recent years.. This one's kinda playful and casual and very much fitting the ELDO mould.

    Voyage d'Hermes quickly mellows into something that is rather nice--it was 25 here today and humid and it smelled great!

    I don't think Tierre d'Hermes is a hot-weather appropriate scent. To me, it reminds me of hiking in the early spring in the gorge by my home.

    Going by what a Bostoner might consider hot and humid, I'd have to say my #1 year-round scent is Knize Ten, but I don't wear it every single day.

    Going by what I'd consider hot/humid, it's a toss-up between Yatagan and Habit Rouge EdC.
