    Default Looking for recommendations.

    Hi there. Am looking to expand my wardrobe so here is a little something about me.

    I'm 20, living in an all year round 32-39 degree celcius climate. Hot and humid mostly. Summer everyday with rain on lucky days. Studying and also working part time. I don't do much sports and prefer to go out with friends and my gf during my free time, if not I will laze at home. Love drinking at nightlife but no I don't like dark fragrances. I prefer fresh citrusy sweet scents. Hopefully with good longevity and sillage.

    What I like- Sauvage (owned), BdC (owned), AHS, VPH (owned), AdG Essenza (owned), Mugler Cologne, MB Legend Spirit (owned), Invictus Aqua, Light Blue Intense, Coach for men

    What I dislike- Individuel (cloying I'll get a headache wearing it), Dylan Blue (weird saliva smell), AdG Profumo (too much incense/patchouli or rosemary in there), CH Men Prive (cloying)

    Thank you in advance.

    I think Chanel Allure Homme Edition Blanche would be a good choice.

    Mancera - Soleil d'Italie would fit the bill for your climate.
    The two above suggestions are also good.
    Heeley - Menthe Fraiche might also work nicely for you.

    Agree with Soleil D'Italie by Mancera

    For hot and humid weather, I like vetiver (Mugler cologne has a lot). It's fresh but still elegant. Most colognes called vetiver will do. For a twist on the theme, CDG2 man (vetiver and incense).

    Mugler Cologne has no vetiver. Are you mixing it up with Creed Original Vetiver?

    Another vote for Chanel Allure Edition Blanche

    Also adding Cerruti 1881 Edition Blanche, Best of Chevignon, Guerlain Homme Ideal Cologne, Verdon by l'Occitane, Azzaro pour Homme l'Eau to a (re) testing list, as most of these have just the right balance between sweeter but not overly sweet and fresh citrus, fitting for warmer temperatures.
