    Will you be outside all day long, or will you be in a temperature-controlled environment?

    One spritz of Muscs Koublaï Khän to the belly. This one performs well for me in the heat.

    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!

    It certainly has been a very very hot few days, approaching 35C that feels like 45 with humidity, thought I made the mistake by wearing Body Kouros today, but i was surprised how well this fragrance stood up in the heat, never became cloying, it was very civilized.

    Will bust out Millesime Imperial the next few days though.
    Current top 5:
    1. Puredistance M

    Cool Re: It's going to be 97 degree fahrenheit today, what fragrance would you wear?

    Guerlian Vetiver, Bowling Green, Infusion by Bombay Sapphire-- and maybe St John's Bay Rum.

    ******************************************

    But not Himalaya, Bois de Cédrat, Acqua di Parma Colonia, Eau d'Orange Verte, Gai Mattiolo Uomo, or Versace l'Homme, These stop working for me past 90 degrees.
