    Default Top five warm weather fragrances

    I was wondering here in the dead of winter here in NYC where every day is in the 20's, what are your go to fragrances in the warmer weather? What are your top five fragrances during warmer weather? I have a lot of fragrances in my wardrobe that are better suited for cooler weather. I was wondering what your favorite warm weather fragrances were? As always, thanks.
    My current top ten:
    1. Spice and Wood
    2. Tonka Imperiale
    3. Dior Homme
    4. Pure Malt
    5. Oud Wood
    6. Ambre Nuit
    7. L'air Du Desert Marocain
    8. Noir de Noir
    9. Apple Brandy
    10.Straight to Heaven

    Monsieur Balmain & Yachting by Pascal Morabito are two of my preferred, but actually wear any scent at any time.

    Yes, NY isn't fun at the moment, but it is giving me a chance to try out new colder weather fragrances. For the spring/summer I have stored away:

    Chanel Allure Homme Edition Blanche
    Versace Pour Homme
    Gucci Pour Homme II
    Cartier Declaration d'Un Soir
    Prada Luna Rossa

    No need to store that one way! IMO it works well in cooler weather.

    True, it does. But I have so many winter/fall fragrances that I want to save it until at least spring.

    Virgin Island Water
    C&E West Indian Limes (how does this not get more regard on BN?)
    GFT
    Coriolan
    Bergamote 22

    Those are my 5, and I've gotta say that Mugler Cologne would ordinarily have been in my list, but the more I wear my decant of Bergamote 22, the more I feel that Mugler Cologne is losing its place in my pantheon of great summer frags*.

    They definitely have similar characteristics - the openings are very similar at first sniff - but the vetiver/Iso E of Le Labo's effort makes it a more daring (and yes, less clean) fragrance, which really speaks to me.

    *It remains one of the most versatile scents of all time, though.

    From the posts thus far, looks like VIW is the ultimate summer frag!

    Can't say I disagree - it's the only Creed I've tried/owned that's full bottle worthy.


    I'll be restocking once mine runs out.

    I've been giving Mugler Cologne and Original Vetiver full wearings in the office this winter. So far, I like OV a little better but MC has better longevity.

    Nice thread, good prep for the summer season.

    I have a very limited experience with warm weather fragrances but of the little I've tried, here is what I like:

    Creed Aventus
    Creed MI
    Creed GIT
    Eau de Rochas Pour Homme
    Givenchy Play Inense

    As I said, experience is limited...looks like most of what other people are suggesting is niche :/
