    Default Long lasting beastmode performance designer recommendations for a hot and humid Summer?

    I live in a pretty humid and hot area, and I'm pretty sure my skin doesn't hold the scents that long. I don't want to go with a niche yet since I'm still on a budget and I'm only starting out, maybe something around 60-70 dollars or less?

    I'm also looking at Bvlgari Aqua Amara and Atlantique, which of these 2 has the better longetivity, sillage and performance?

    Here are some of my favorites, maybe this could help with the recommendations:
    - Dior Sauvage EDT
    - Dunhill Icon
    - Armaf CDNim
    - Versace Eros
    - CK Shock

    Thank you!

    Have you tried Acqua di Gio Profumo? I's a nice aromatic aquatic with decent staying power.

    How about Invictus Aqua
    It’s tragic to think that heroic man’s great destiny is to become economic man, that men will be reduced to craven creatures who crawl across the globe competing for money, who spend their nights dreaming up new ways to swindle each other.

    I'm pretty sure the Kouros is super Polarizing, I'll have to test it first

    If that was a question for me, I don't know. I didn't try the original. I'd say the newest version is not weak, though it is not something I own so I have no reference for how it handles extreme weather. I have a decant of the Intense version, which is meh.

    Regarding the Profumo, I'd venture to say so.

    Both bulgari scents are pretty potent and will last all day.
    I’d suggest Fahrenheit aqua as well.

    I live in a hot place (hot in summer), and I’d implode you not to use Sauvage or Dunhill Icon on very hot days— I’d get a horrible headache just walking by you, if you did.

    For our hot summers, Mr. Kotori and I love:

    Dior Homme Cologne
    Tom Ford Neroli Portofino Acqua
    Tom Ford Mandarino di Amalfi
    Chanel Allure Edition Blanche
    Chanel Allure Homme Sport
    Chanel Sycomore

    All these project and last all day on him.
    My only regrets in life are the people I haven't stood up for,
    and the perfumes I've thrown away.

    I recently tried Zara From Paris to New York and it was a beast on my skin, projecting for 8 hours from one spray

    Aqua Atlantique has zero performance on me. Amara has very good lasting power. It turns sour on my skin quickly though and I cant wear it. My daughter wears it all the time and she smells like fresh orange peels and incense. It's very nice and it would probably be great for you. The large majority of people will love Sauvage, unless you hang out with fragheads all day long. It would be perfect. Dylan Blue , Luna Rossa Carbon.... they would be great also.

    The kiwi version is nice and the 2013 verion is pretty good also.All of them smell have the Issey DNA, but the prices are reasonable and they last at least 8 hours on my skin.

    I was (mostly!) joking. I’ve only been on this forum for 6 weeks or so now, but it seems like Aventus is the answer to almost any question anybody asks. At least one person has to say it. So..
    (Then again, Aventus IS a great summer fragrance, and one could easily find a nice 30ml decant that would last all summer for ~60bucks... )

    My two cents,

    I really like Havana from the Aramis Gentleman's Collection in the summer.

    It's one of those rare "spicy" perfumes that still works in the the heat (don't go crazy on the sprays; there's no need to).
