    Default Help Required Again - Tropical Climate Work Perfume

    Hi guys

    I live in a tropical climate and I own

    Bleu de chanel
    Prada amber pour homme
    Davidoff cool water

    Of these Davidoff and Prada are very light and gets lost after some sweat. Bleu sticks longer.
    I need some top 3 recommendations for perfume (which is suitable for both evening dates and semi-formal work places).

    Requirements:
    1. It should not smell closer to the 3 I already own
    2. Should not be very light.
    3. Should be liked well by girls.

    Any awesome new perfumes released in last 2 years? Older will also do. Also, how is CK Obsession & Burberry touch? Are these similar to any of those I own?

    Thank you.

    Perhaps Burberry London

    I think vetivers work well for tropical weather. They feel fresh but are also elegant and slightly woody. For instance, Tom Ford Grey Vetiver.

    +1 for Grey Vetiver. And Guerlain Vetiver is also great in that climate.
    But I'm gonna recommend Creed Aventus, the warm tropical weather really brings out the juicy "smoked" pineapple notes. And it definitely meets your 3 requirements.

    Hello! I also own coolwater and yes the scent is really weak. I hope to find something that smells like it but lasts longer and projects better.

    Nautica voyage and mont blanc legend is good though

    Agree with vetivers. Maybe Original Vetiver.
    Otherwise maybe something like Eternity Aqua.

    As someone who lives in subtropical Louisiana I definitely have experience with needing colognes that can take the heat (and humidity!).

    It's hard to beat Nautica Voyage on those days when you are going to be outside. Another option might be Bvlgari Aqua Marine. For office work I've found Versace Pour Homme does well. You could also go for Versace EF as others suggested, I just simply prefer the scent of Pour Homme.

    For Vetivers I haven't been a huge fan of TF Grey Vetiver but I know others have been and that is certainly an option. I wore Original Vetiver as my signature scent for over a year and what I can tell you is in *HIGH* heat it still smells good but doesn't last. It's a great fragrance if you want to try it or Mugler Cologne which many people says smells very very similar but on the hottest of days or when you are going to be outside a lot I wouldn't reach for it. The Vetiver I'd actually recommend is Encre Noire Sport. The sporty opening makes it VERY good in the summer (I've been testing it for the past 3-4 weeks in the hottest time of year) and the dry down has this great Vetiver scent that is interesting to smell and not just "clean". It also lasts much, much longer than any of the above mentioned Vetivers. It is fast on its way to becoming my next signature scent.

    A couple of others that I found smell good in the heat are Silver Mountain Water (but I recommend Al Rehab's Silver in the spray bottle as a great alternative), St James of London Mandarin & Patchouli, Aqua di Gio (Better alternative Perry Ellis 360 Red), and surprisingly enough I've been getting a shocking amount of compliments from Original CK Men Euphoria.

    Stay away from anything too sweet as you will become a sugar bomb (This means no The One or Pure Malt or anything boozy sweet).
