    +1 for SEL MARIN, it's great stuff.

    If you like white florals, they can really shine in the summer.

    Maybe try Parfumerie Generale's TUBEREUSE COUTURE, or Etat Libre's JASMIN ET CIGARETTE.

    I've worn both in the summer, and instead of feeling overpowering, I think they actually go even better than in cooler weather.

    Thanks for all the suggestions guys! I have a lot of research/sampling to do now. I'm curious about the Oud recommendations because I've never been a big fan but the ones that I do have all seem to work better in cooler weather.

    Yet another vote for Green Irish Tweed.

    Also:

    L’Occitan by L’Occitane
    Smuggler’s Soul by Lush
    Fahrenheit by Dior

    Technically Fahrenheit has some bergamot in there, but it’s completely indistinguishable from the barrel note.

    Most things listed here have some form of citrus in the top even if they don't focus on it, but if I had to completely zero it out:

    Dirty by Lush (1998)

    This one is built on mint and tarragon.

    Prada Infusion d'Iris Cèdre - pretty simple, on my skin just crisp iris and cedar, woody undertones throughout, quite minimal and that is its strong suit

    Creed Vetiver Geranium - there is some juiciness from the opening but it feels green floral thereafter, the vetiver is a gentle measure for those who tend to veer away from that note during hot weather

    Try out some vetivers: the vintage version of Guerlain's is quite nice. Pour un Homme is also great. Maybe some nice open-shirted, bright, classic fougeres like Azzaro PH or other stuff in that vain. Or maybe a nice green chypre like Chanel 19.

    Interesting how different people get different things from a fragrance. I like Castile a lot largely due to the orange/citrus notes in the opening that remains throughout the dry down. I can't remember the name of the person who wears this most often, curious what his take would be....

    A +1 to Ken Russells suggestion of Cartier Roadster. Citrus is listed but is not prominent.

    One more that works in warm but perhaps not so much in very hot weather - Goutal Vetiver. No citrus. It seems to get more "smoky" with more heat up to a certain point....

    Another rec for Geranium Pour Monsieur.

    Also agreed most things vetiver are a nice summer alternative, last summer my go to was D.S. and Durga Cowboy grass and I look forward to wearing it again now.

    A lot of people don't seem impressed by it, but I really really love Malle's Eau de Magnolia. It falls somewhere between a citrus and a floral, it's super fresh without being either. It's transparent but long lasting, every time I wear it I'm in love again.

    If you want bracing fresh woods, I would also suggest the CDG blue series, either Blue Cedrat or Blue Santal. CDG Serpentine is also a great green fragrance if you like more subtle things.

    A few that I think work better in the summer than in the winter, despite the notes:

    by Kilian - Straight to Heaven
    Gucci - Pour Homme II
    Serge Lutens - Encens et Lavande


    And these aren't citrus scents, but have a fresh/bright clean scent (but may lean slightly feminine):
    Laurent Mazzone - Aldheyx
    Oriza L. Legrand - Reve d'Ossian
    Monoscent - G Galaxolide
    Philosophy - Pure Grace
    Current Summer Favorites:

    1. Xerjoff - Nio
    2. Tom Ford - Rive d’Ambre
    3. Dior - Homme Cologne 2013
    4. The Different Company - De Bachmakov
    5. Armani - Code Sport Athlete
    6. Montale - Aoud Legacy
    7. Dior - Homme Sport 2008
    8. by Kilian - Straight to Heaven
    9. Ermenegildo Zegna - Sicilian Mandarin
    10. Creed - Pure White Cologne

    Fig and/or mint.

    Try Heeley for some crackers in both categories.

    EDIT: I realise fig is a fruit...hmmm...but it's so 'oddly' fruity I think it still works?

    Sunshine Man to me isn't based around citrus and is good for hot weather.

    Havana is considered by many to be a cold weather scent, but I love the way the spicy tobacco, bay rum plays in warm weather.

    For Castile, I guess it depends on whether you class neroli as citrus. It is from The flower of a citrus tree but smells quite different from the flesh or the oils in the rind of the fruit. White floral with soapy, stone like, or even green spicy aspects. I’ve always classed it as citrus myself (like orange blossom and petitgrain, etc. )
    1. No, never blind buy (I do, but do as I say, not as I do. I'm taking no responsibility for your fragrance gambling).
    2. Get them both. You're a Basenoter and you know you're going to end up purchasing them both eventually.
    3. Yes, it has been reformulated.
    4. Looking for a signature scent? You've come to the wrong place.

    Yeah, to me the neroli/orangish notes that I like I class as citrus. Does not mean that is right, but it's why I would not suggest it in this thread.


    One more that came to mind is Cartier L'Envol. Don't notice any citrus and it's interesting in warm weather.


    Ziffy321, want to thank you for asking this question as it has made for some interesting reflections. I know some don't but I tend to have a different set of warm versus cold weather wears and rotate one set out. Thinking about it almost every warm weather one I like is citrus or citrus prominent. (Sidenote, I also counted fig as citrus related). It was hard to think of many without citrus. On the other hand, thinking of the winter like list those may have citrus but nearly always as a minor or background scent.

    I never learned any rule to use citrus for warm weather.... for the most part the frags are classed where they seem to fit best from wearings. But perhaps some experimenting is in order, to try a few of the winter ones next month and see if the rotation plan is sound or if I have just created habits that may not hold up. Even if most of the ones stay where they are there may be some that cross over well. I'm sure the no-weather guys are now saying "wear them all"!!....
