    Question Hot weather class

    What would work well in business formal, or a black tie evening (one such event this summer), on a day probably around 95F/35C, evening at 85F/29C, and humidity of at least 70%? Longevity greater than 6 hours preferred, projection not a major factor, but please exclude skin scents. Yes, many hours are spent in air conditioned rooms, but not all of them.

    Millesime Imperial.

    It's great in warm weather, dresses up very well (although it also works in casual settings) and I get a good 7-8 hours out of it.

    No offense, but LDDM seems like it would be extremely cloying, especially with increased humidity and I typically don't have problems wearing "traditionally fall/winter" scents in the summer. I will +1 Hermes suggestion though
