    Chergui does very well in the heat IMHO - you smell good . I wore it in 3 digit summer weather here in the San Joaquin valley last year.
    PS. How the hell can it be that hot in LA this time of the year ?

    113 in La- over 100 in Santa Monica! I thought it was unseasonably warm in San Fran at the meetup this weekend.
    It's like an oven in Ventura, as well.

    My SOTD was a double shot of Mitchum antiperspirant and AG Eau du Sud, lightly refreshed every 3 hours. Plus, I keep spraying Shidon Naturals "lemongrass verbena" spray onto my face. It's like a lightly scented version of spraying of evian or mineral water as a quick pick me up. Otherwise, I'd be melted into the floor.

    Come to Palm Springs of you really want it hot. LOL
    But even worse is in Kuwait (I spent 3 years there), where 120 F (50 C) in summer is common, not normal, mind you, but common.
    Santal by Creed helps at those temps, so does Tuscan Soul by Salvatore Farragamo, but if you do not want to throw money away in expensive perfumes, old 4711 or JM Farina do a really good job. Some of Roger & Gallet colognes also can help.
    Next time I will try Ginger Ale by Demeter, it must be refreshing, I think.

    Today it was hot as hell here in LA, and I was wearing The Different Company Osmanthus, just one more day of insane weather and we'll be back to normal temperatures.

    It was hotter than I can ever remember. It reminds me of Summer days in Arizona. I had the pleasure of wearing Bigarade Concentree. It worked wonders.

    I ended up using Chanel Allure Sport.

    Chergui seriously blooms in the heat! You must have smelt deeelicious!
    But seriously how the heck can LA be in the triple digits this time of year?! I was there in mid July and it was pretty chilly and downright cool at night (in the fifties).

    Last year when Portland was baking in 106° heat I was practically drinking Eau d'Orange Verte. I can't imagine 113°, especially in the concrete jungle that is LA. But Chergui? You crazy!

    We had an odd non summer summer. June, July and August were not typical. This is kind of September heat burst is not unusual, but this is a bit extreme.

    Hard for east coasties to relate, but it's near single digit humidity. It IS hot, but it really doesn't feel like 100+ (unless you're standing in the sun).

    I've gotta ask: Haven't you LA folks seen the movies? What about those dramatic TV shows set in "LA?" It ALWAYS pours down rain there (usually during the most dramatic scenes of these productions.) So you guys are obviously delusional and it's probably 50 and pouring right now.

    UH-HUH. We see those and it always cracks me up. May rain about 10 days a year here. I love heat, but 50 and pouring sounds good right now.

    It's a desert but we water it.

    It's 10pm and my apt in the foothills of Santa Barbara is still so damn hot... trying to get some air moving.

    I wore Un Jardin Apres la Mousson to beat the heat, but luckily was also in an air-conditioned office right by the breezy ocean during the day.

    Well, I was in Vegas in July and it was similar temperatures. I wore Aramis Havana and I think it worked out great, so much so that nice strangers offered me pamphlets with prostitutes numbers on them as I walked up and down the Strip.

    I was in Vegas in August and it was 106 degrees F . Didn't stop me from wearing my 'fumes though ! Carnal Flower does well in heat too . Mind you, it does go up to 115 degrees C here in the good ole Central Valley during the height of summer ... such fun . We've been lucky this year- it was hot but never got hotter than 106 I believe.
    Stay cool and fragrant, LA Basenoters !

    Hahaha yeah yesterday was pretty hot. I live in the San Fernando valley region of Los Angeles, so you can imagine the heat here. I actually wasn't bothered much, just stayed indoors in air conditioned buildings. When it gets to be "that" hot, you just have to be able to accept the fact that you're going to be a prisoner, and stay indoors.

    Anyway, I think I was wearing a sample of CDG 2 Man yesterday : )

    You forgot something- it was 113 when the official thermometer at USC broke. They aren't sure that it wasn't hotter.

    I wore L'Antimatiere and stayed near any available AC. Today it's only 95 and it feels like 60 in comparison...

    In my excitement of getting new samples I threw on Bois D'Orage. Totally forgot how hot it was going to be, but it didn't fare too badly. Today I went with Aqua Marine, and am pretending I'm sunning myself on the beach instead of working...

    I wore Creed Neroli Savage yesterday.

    It worked so well in the heat, I repeated it today.

    Got a compliment in my office elevator.

    For those that are used to 120 degree heat in Las Vegas, Arizona, or Palm Springs....it's nothing like 108+ heat in Los Angeles! The extra humidity we have makes it more uncomfortable.
