    Default Most Daring Summer Heat Choice

    Curious as to what’s the most daring scent you choice when temperatures peak.. I wear black orchid, DHP, TV and TO in the high heat here. I’d consider them pretty daring on our hottest days!

    This one’s easy: Xerjoff More than Words - a rose oud that also packs incense, vanilla, ambergris, plus fruit at the top.

    I personally wouldn't consider any of my fragrances too daring to wear in summer heat.

    In the real heat? I wouldn't enjoy a cloying dare. Uncommon dare? Yes, Profundis is what I'm looking forward to, it's the first summer I have it but I think it'll be best there.

    Sometimes I like wearing rich ambers like L'Air du Desert Marocain. Heat brings out the desert vibe.

    Do you mean in regards to being daring? I have owned Straight to Heaven (gave away my bottle) and I didn't find that one challenging or daring whatsoever. A great fragrance, though - no doubt about it.

    Yes, especially in a town where the summer scent of choice for the past three years has been Sauvage.

    In my opinion, Interlude and Tobacco Oud could wear nicely in the heat.

    However you view it ( seasonal or don't care) - after spending time on BN, I guess I've become a little more selective for weather appopriate frags. However I distinctly remember donning Pour Lui ODLR and Polo Green in summers gone by
    Pour Lui will has special memories as it was the one frag I took to KSA - yeah 40degs + !!

    If wearing POLO in the summer is daring, call me Evel Knievel.

    At least they have moved on to Sauvage. Here it's still Acqua di Gio.

    I can’t see Polo smelling gross in heat just a pleasant deep smelling fragrance masculine!

    An upgrade from Sauvage, IMO. Especially if it’s Acqua di Gio Profumo.

    I don't have a lot of sweet frags, but I do have Arpege pour homme which would just seem wrong in the summer heat with it's Christmas vibe. Kinda like chugging eggnog at the beach.

    How are any of these "daring summer heat frags"??? They're all summer fragrances! Those are literally the least daring summer heat scents.
