    Default Casual citrus for humid summers?

    whats a good jeans and t shirt citrus scent for humid summers? ive done a lot of reading on the topic and some trying too. i like the sound of Eau de Rochas Pour Homme (1993) the most so far. What i am looking for is an airy transparent citrus with a woody base. ive tried Versace ph (2008) but it was too strong and many of its contemporaries have the same vibe. Opinions?

    Guerlain Homme L'Eau. Grapefruit and mint up top, supported by a light, woody base.

    Never sharp or thin, it's transparent, has excellent sillage and surprising longevity....my number one, go-to summer scent.

    L'Eau par Kenzo pour Homme by Kenzo - Initially, one is treated to a biting and sparkling blast of yuzo, somewhere between a grapefruit and a mandarin orange, with its lemon-like tangy and floral aspects. This sharp and bright citrus slowly pairs with ho leaf, which tinges the pseudo-lemon with its spicy and sweet, floral and rosewood overtones, yielding an almost lemon, furniture polish accord, morphing the stark citrus into a luscious smoothness. The refreshing, watery middle beckons. Here, in the heart, the pseudo-lemon is immersed in a bath of lotus flower, with its lovely, water lily greenness with a hint of mint, sharp and fresh ozone notes, as well as refreshful aquatic notes, with its faint, marine and mint accord, and steeps into a soothing lemonade. Pleasant white musk usurps the cool blend into the awaiting base, imparting its sweet and floral facets, and its cohort, green pepper, adds a kiss of earthiness before meandering to the light and airy drydown. A wonderful fragrance to be turned to in the heat of the summer, this fresh and crisp composition is a vibrant, green, lemony and woody scent, and has average longevity and projection. In the sweaty dog days of the summer, you need this!

    L'Eau d'Issey is still a good lemon-wood fragrance, as is Dior's Eau Sauvage; the latter has less wood.

    Nice suggestions. I guess what I am looking for is considered an "Eau de Cologne" which I did not know ( newb :P) but now knowing that It seems there are a lot of options.

    Agua de Colonia Concentrada Alvarez Gomez would be a more unusual choice--maybe hard to find, but well worth it, although it is not expensive. Check the ratings on Fragrantica. Very lemony, not overpowering, and reasonable longevity.
