    Default Your Summer Rotation

    I'm getting anxious for warm weather, but it won't come for quite a while (I'm in Michigan). Post your summer rotations.


    Creed Silver Mountain Water- currently have 5ml sample, plan to buy 30ml decant
    Creed Millesime Imperial- currently have 10 ml sample
    Creed Virgin Island Water- 5ml sample
    GPH II- sample is gone, plan to buy a bottle
    YSL L'homme- bottle
    YSl La Nuit- bottle (will wear lightly)
    Nautica Voyage- bottle
    Versace Pour Homme- mini
    Versace Man Eau Fraiche- mini
    KC Reaction Connected- bottle (disappointing purchase, but it is a decent scent)
    KC Black- bottle (another disappointment, but it is decent)
    Acqua Di Gio- bottle
    Acqua Di Parma Colonia- vial
    Rochas Man- bottle (can this be worn safely in the heat?)
    CK One Shock
    Kiton Men- multiple vials
    Mugler Cologne- thinking of buying 10ml sample
    Creed Aventus- 5 and 10ml decants
    Ilum Dean Fresco- whole damn bottle (dont really need this since I have Aventus, but thought I would try it)

    added late (forgot)
    Guerlain LIdG and LIDGE- 10ml and 5ml (not sure how these fair in the heat)
    Midnight in Paris- 5ml
    Dolce and Gabbana Pour Homme- sephora sample
    Unforgivable- bottle



    I'm probably missing a few things. But this is what I can think of off the top of my head.

    Since I work in air-conditioned spaces and it almost never gets too hot in my corner of the universe, if it's in my wardrobe, it may be worn in summer.

    I might wear just about anything from my collection this summer, but these are the ones that will be getting a bit more usage than the others:


    Creed - Jardin d'Amalfi
    Creed - Virgin Island Water
    Kenneth Cole - Black
    Kenneth Cole - Reaction
    Bond No. 9 - Chez Bond
    Bond No. 9 -Eau de New York
    Bond No. 9 - Bleecker Street
    Tom Ford Neroli Portofino
    Chanel - Allure Homme Sport
    Chanel - Allure Homme Edition Blanche
    Versace Man - Eau Fraiche
    Dior Homme Sport 2008
    Dior Homme Sport 2012
    Nautica Voyage
    Mugler Cologne
    Heeley - Agarwood
    Heeley - Sel Marin
    Monsieur Balmain
    Armani - Acqua di Gio
    by Kilian - Straight to Heaven

    But, pretty much anything in my collection is fair game.

    For the moment (GPH 2 is in my spring rotation)
    Regular work use: Hermes Eau d'Orange Verte, Creed Selection Verte & MI, Chanel AH Edition Blanche;
    Very hot days so Creed Bois de Cedrat; Citrus Bigarrade;
    Cooler summer days: Creed Zeste Mandarine Pamplemousse;
    Leisure: Creed Cheverefeuille and Royal Delight, Lubin Neuve,
    Summer evenings: SMN Melograno, Lubin L, Penhaligons Castille (more conservative);
    Special Occasion evening: Creed Windsor;
    Romantic evening: Jo Malone Red Roses;
    All this is varied according to my mood and other spontaneous impulses. As I travel a lot to different climates, no seasonal rotation is ever completely mothballed.

    I've only really got ADG and Cool Water for summer, sampled the likes of GPHII and Versace PH and might end up buying 50ml bottles soon.

    Though I am not that specific to wear only lighter, more casual, more aquatic, citrus-based etc. scents during summer, some of my staple fragrances from my wardrobe for summer wear are, usually: Kenzo pour Homme, L'Erbolario Neroli, Tesori d'Oriente Marrakesh Neroli & Cardamomo, Fahrenheit 32, Trussardi Jeans, some EDC from the Fraicheur Vegetale product line by Yves Rocher, Eau Sauvage (1966), Roberto Capucci pour Homme.
