    Cool Extremely Hot summer. Leave some suggestions please!

    i 've been "bathing" with Mugler Cologne, Monsieur Balmain, Live Jazz e especially Rive Gauche, which seems to calm down my skin. With rive gauche i feel clean and fresh. Ohh, i forgot to say.... The temperature is ranging from 95-104 F (35-40ºC) to 75-80ºF at night (23-28ºC at night).

    I just want some more scents to lift me up these hot days. If it has a good price, but without being generic ,it would be better.

    Voyage Nautica?
    Roadster?
    New West Aramis?

    A few affordable summer scents that I enjoy...

    Prada Luna Rossa
    F by Ferragamo Pour Homme
    Bvlgari Pour Homme Extreme

    Also check out Atelier Cologne. 90% of their stuff is citrus based, warm weather fragrances. They have a good sample pack on their website. These would be considered niche, but they come in huge 200ml bottles so the cost per ml is less than $1.

    Dior Vetiver
    Frederick Malle Vetiver Extraordinaire
    Acqua di Parma Essenza

    These all do well in heat (where I'm currently at, summer days are often 120F+, and nights about 98F). And, they all work great when you are indoors with AC going, too. ;-)

    Definitely agree with this recommendation and would add Armani Code Sport for another minty option that is very smooth.

    I love Cartier Declaration is the heat.

    Voyage is also very good and super cheap.

    +1 on Cartier Declaration.

    I wish we would get some warmer weather this year as I want to try out YSL Rive Gauche in the heat.

    Roadster is a good choice but be easy on the trigger. Same with New West.

    I would suggest L'eau par Kenzo PH, has a beautiful fresh citrus (yuzu) opening. Certainly available for a good price in UK.

    Hope you find something great.

    Jean-Luc Amsler Homme (not the Prive version). It is a very nice refreshing composition using mint-like violet leaf and cucumber to cool off the heat composed by the great Edouard Flechier. Relatively inexpensive, skillfully done and quite distinctive.

    Good ones for real hot weather:

    - Azzaro Chrome (performs like a beast and stays!)
    - Cartier Declaration Cologne (Edt): Smells extremely natural and refreshing! A must have imo
    - Nautica Voyage: Smells good and really fresh without citrus, lasts all day, though not as strong as Chrome
    - L'Eau D'Issey (the summer 2009 or 2012 version are maybe even better for real hot weather!)
    - Guerlain Vetiver Sport (more fresh and without the tobacco)
    - Guerlain Homme L'Eau (Boisee) (The L'Eau version is fresher but also less lasting!)
    - Bvlgari Aqva (Marine) pour homme (I just love the Marine version but both are excellent)
    - Azzaro Chrome Legend (for evenings when it's still hot)
    - Guy Laroche: Horizon (original and fresh)

    When its boiling hot and humid here in Chicago, the only 2 i will even think about wearing is Silver Mountain Water and Neroli Portofino. They literally calm me down from the raging beast i become. I HATE hot weather. You don't want to be around me when the temp goes past 80F

    80F? Yikes, that's a nice winter day for me here in SoCal. Next week it's going to be in the 90's. Summer: ~120F. ;-) (but it's dry heat, they say, lol!)

    Neroli Portofino is awesome on hot days. +1

    Agreed that Versace Man Eau Fraiche is the perfect hot weather scent. It smells sour and putrid under 80 degrees, but heavenly one the temperature is past 90, nice and cool
