    If you are not looking into anything particularly good, anything containing "sport" in its name will work well enough.

    Please keep the suggestions coming! Niche fragrances are out of my league though. I quite like Dior Homme Sport because of its clean and transparent scent. Any fragrances with such a similar drydown (with or without the ginger note)?

    Versace eau Fraiche. Performs superbly in hot and humid weather. Also give Dior homme sport (the old one, if you can find it) a try.

    Have you tried Kenneth cole reaction? It's pretty cheap and it's a clean fresh melon scent.. Also you might try burberry classic.. thats the only fragrance ive bought more than once.. I actually got it by accident thinking i was buying something else but i tried it and liked it so much i kept it. But thats before i really started to get into collecting. I've seen both at ross,tj max, burlington.

    For lemony fresh try Chanel allure homme sport cologne.. not the grey bottle.. its in a clear bottle.. it's really lemony.. kinda like issey miyake without the florals & yuzu. I actually like it more than the regular allure homme sport.. And it has great longevity!

    Check out Serge Lutens l'Eau.

    Not designer (I think Escentuals at Tangs carry it) but potent considering the 'relative safety' of the style - you'll get a good bang for your buck. Lutens aficionados tend to pooh pooh it (he actually calls it an 'anti perfume' - dear old Serge) but taken as it is - a clean, crisp, light citrus + laundry musk kind of concoction it may be just what you're looking for.

    Added bonus - when you finish it you can clean the bottle and spray mechanism and decant some Guerlain Eau de Cologne Imperiale into it from your 250ml Bee Bottle for short haul trips away - which is what I do

    Also recommended, Guerlain Cologne du Parfumeur. A 'green' variation on the EDC accord with a bit of musk to give it longevity - good for what you want.

    + Eau de Rochas pour Homme
    + Azzaro Chrome
    + CK One

    In really hot weather I like these best for their longevity.

    My experience with Creeds as to longevity in high temperatures is lousy.
    IMO not worth the money.

    BTW, instead of wasting your money on TF Neroli Portofino, you could also try 4711.

    Penhaligon's Quercus is another citrus and almost identical to CK ONE. In this case I prefer CK ONE,
    for its longevity.

    I have tried all of these in the gym in hot weather.
