    Hi everyone. I have some choises for summer:
    - Guerlain Homme Intense
    - Dior Homme Sport
    - Dior Homme Cologne
    - Allure Homme Édition Blanche
    - Versace Eros
    - Aqua Allegoria Herba Fresca Guerlain
    What is the best for summer (25 - 30 celsius temperature)? (No Allure Homme Sport because it is too popular in my country)

    Dior Homme Sport is a good one. Tommy Bahama Set Sail St. Bart's is a nice summer fragrance as well and it can typically be had at a low price point.

    From your list: Allure Homme Édition Blanche or Dior Homme Sport.

    If you are in Vietnam, Dior Homme Cologne only. Others get too cloying, Vietnam has the worst humidity ever.

    I'd go for Dior Homme Cologne. It's fresh, classy and understated. Works very nicely in the heat.

    I watch the review in Youtube, Fragrantica. Someone says its longevity is 8h+, someone says it will disappear after 2h. I don't know which is the truth @@

    I wore DHC in South America recently. It was hot and humid. DHC had average projection for about 4-5 hrs on my skin then became a skin scent. The humidity did beat it down as it lasts about 7 hrs here in Canada.

    I have Dolce&Gabbana The One, too. Can you compare it to The One (about longevity). thanks

    I wear The One and DHC at different times of the year and in some instances different countries so it won't be a fair comparison. I don't know how The One performs in humid environments. During winter and spring The One has fair longevity (6hrs) with average projection. It remains a skin scent until I scrub it off. My GF can smell it on me 10 hrs after I've applied.

    Dior Homme Sport, Dior Homme Cologne, Allure Homme EB

    Versace Eros is quite horrible, honestly speaking (IMO).

    Great scent, but probably too subtle for your criteria. Not particularly long lasting either.
