My 3 Signature Scents:
Rive Gauche Light (2004)
Paul Smith Man (2009)
Dior Homme Sport is wonderful.
Yachting by Pascal Morabito
A great summertime fragrance with plenty of vanilla - Chanel Allure Homme Edition Blanche
Another happy vote for Allure Blanche...great scent for spring/summer warm days
"I love fragrances because they provide a sheer endless variety: there is a scent for every occasion, mood or feeling. Standing before my collection in the morning matching a perfume to my needs is one of the most enjoyable things in my day". I don't want to miss that
Current Top 12 Spring: | Chanel Allure Blanche | Guerlain Homme Intense | Dior Fahrenheit | Givenchy pour Homme | Carolina Herrera for Men | Narciso Rodriguez Him | T. Mugler A*Men Sunessence | Trussardi Inside | C. Herrera Chic | Azzaro PH | M. Kors Michael for Men | Pal Zileri Sartoriale |
Gucci Pour Homme II should do it.
Chanel Allure Sport, the tonka in it gives it a nice vanilla feel.
that new Versace Eros or Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme!
The Dreamer by Versace & Habit Rouge by Guerlain.
ďArenít you a little short for a stormtrooper?Ē
MI or SMW are greaf
My vote would be for L'Occitane's Eau des Baux
Interestingly, many of the notes you've listed for your Summer scent are commonly used for scents that people call "Winter scents." Though, of course, that's just a general sense. These categories are just guideposts.
My current summer scent is Eau d'Hadrien, but I don't think that fits your note preferences. Maybe Eau Duelle?
Eau des Baux, mentioned above, is a nice, inexpensive scent. I bought it a few weeks ago and am interested to see how often it calls to me this Summer.
Current Top Five:
1. Creed Green Irish Tweed
2. Tom Ford Neroli Portofino
3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
4. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
5. Creed Original Vetiver
HM by Hanae Mori - Great compromise between a fresh lemon and sweet vanilla. Works in warm (though perhaps not HOT) weather
They are my winter/spring scents, as to why I'm asking for some suggestions for summer scents , haha! Thanks everyone I will be ordering some samples of homme edition Blanche and sport.

Eight and Bob
Allure Homme Edition Blanche
Dior homme Sport
H.M by Hanae Mori
Not sure if this meets your requirements, but I recently got Allure Homme Sport, and am absolutely loving it. Great scent and long lasting.
+1 to Chanel Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme or L'occitane Eau de Baux although both might be a bit cloying in the summer heat. My suggestion for something light on wood, perfect for summer would be Bang Bang by Marc Jacobs. Stupid name, weird bottle but it's a nice wood scent for summer in particular. Not cloying by any means.
Tiffany for Men Sport
Eau de Baux is a vapor cloud in heat. It is way too overpowering when temps exceed 80F.
CKOne Shock ph is a lighter alternative and has some common elements. Spicebomb can also get out of hand in heat.
Gucci PH II
Dior Homme Sport
My current top 10 (with no particular order):
Givenchy Xeryus Rouge
Dior Homme Intense
Costume National Scent Intense
Terre d'Hermes EDT
CK Eternity for Men
YSL Rive Gauche Pour Homme (Old Tin Can)
Thierry Mugler Pure Malt
Costume National Homme
