    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. Epic Man
    3. Tonka Imperiale
    4. Noir de Noir
    5. Bois d'Argent
    6. Musc Ravageur
    7. Apple Brandy
    8. Dior Homme Intense
    9. Aoud 1
    10.Tobacco Vanille

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

    GFT

    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.

    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 :/

    I started the hobby at the very end of the summer, but I know now since I own some of these that they would make good summer fragrances:

    Orange Sanguine by Atelier (if you want to smell like oranges in the most literal way)
    Millesime Imperial by Creed
    Green Irish Tweed (best in spring I would assume)
    HM by Hanae Mori (I wore this almost exclusively last summer, now I'm pretty tired of it)
    Original Vetiver by Creed

    Oh, and Selection Verte! HOW DID I FORGET THAT!

    for warm weather it is best to pull out the very dry, minimal, unsweet and transparent which work especially well in warm and hot weather. These are five I like:

    I love my Original Vetiver, Sel de Vetiver by The Different Company, Gap Grass is great, Cartier Roadster for that fresh minty kick, and possibly L'eau D'Issey.

    My current favorites for warm weather are Virgin Island Water, Aventus and L'Humaniste... I really enjoy Orange Sanguine but it barely lasts two hours on my skin and the same goes with Allure Homme Edition Blanche. Oranges and Lemons Say the Bells of St. Clements sounds like what I am looking for but Heeley fragrances besides Menthe Freiche have crap longevity on my skin so it makes me a little leery to try. Bergamote 22 and Vetiver Extraordinaire interest me the most since I am not crazy about neroli, Colonia Assoluta is out and I have tried Mugler Cologne and Original Vetiver and these have a soapy neroli undertone. Keep the suggestions coming!
