    Default Need help transitioning into spring..

    I'm usually into orientals even though I have been wearing less patch this winter as I find that it tires me.
    This time my winter loves have been CD Oud Ispahan, Evody Ambre Intense, Amouage Memoir, Opus VI, Jubilation 25 , VC&A Orchidee Vanille and Guerlain Tonka Imperiale. I do like the latter but the sweetness is so amped on me I often pick the bottle up and then decide I don't really feel like it.
    I am sensing the spring vibes already but would need suggestions on where I should transition from here. Last summer I wore OJ Isfarkand, Profumi del Forte Vittoria Apuana and Heeley Figuer. But then it got so hot on certain days I skipped scent altogether. And I still need to figure out where to go for spring.
    Suggestions? Price tag is not (really) a problem as I prefer fewer bottles but better quality and character :-). Not big on flowers, love woods and spices. And sillage lol.
    Thoughts on Guerlain VO Shanghai?
    Thanks in advance !

    My favorite go-to for hot days is Chanel Sycomore, fresh vetiver and dry woods. Or Malle Vetiver Extraordinaire, superfresh cedary vetiver.

    Some excellent and inexepensive choices are Mustang Blue, Samba Ice, and Yacht Man Red.

    Thank you all! I just realised I'd posted on the male frag side of the forum. That's why I was suggested Farenheit.. lolz. I will probably delete this and post it where it belongs.
