    1725 by HdP shines in this weather on me. Since it is not a performance monster (not bad either) it will perform bit better. It definitely also lifts my mood up

    Any vetiver. For example Grey Vetiver, Guerlain Vetiver, or Vetiver Extraordinaire.

    Also iris perfumes like Infusion d'Iris Cedre, Iris de Nuit, and Dzongkha.

    For me - Gengis Khan or truthfully any other from my collection.

    For a humid day, I personally would probably go for something crisp that would counteract the damp warmness with enough longevity not to give-up in the weather.

    The ones that come to mind are: Mancera Cedrat Boise, Eau de Rochas Homme, Eau Sauvage Parfum (2017 version), L'Homme Ultime, Annick Goutal Ninfeo Mio, Imaginary Authors Saint Julep, or Xerfoff Nio.

    Speaking just personally and subjectively, almost anything that contains leather, oud, fougere, tobacco, woody, boozy, spicy and/or mossy notes as main themes.

    Including but not limited to scents along the lines of:

    Antaeus, Santos, Zino, Bogart Signature Aramis Tuscany, Worth PH, Brut, Guy Laroche Horizon, Eau des Baux, Knize Ten, Tabac Original, Giorgio for Men, Brut EDT, Sir Irisch Moos, Azzaro PH, La Martina Hombre, to name only a few.

    Anything really but something made me think of Salvador Dali pour Homme first.

    +1, definitely vetiver weather. I’d probably choose Encre Noire or MPG Route du Vetiver for that really earthy, damp root smell, esp RdV. Maybe CdG Radish Vetiver.

    I also think spicy “dark green” fragrances are great for that kind of weather, like Jacomo de Jacomo, TF Noir Anthracite, or TdH Eau Intense Vetiver Likewise galbanum-heavy chypres like Givenchy III orJean Couturier Coriandre.
    “I have often observed that [scents] cause an alteration in me and work upon my spirits according to their several virtues; which makes me approve of what is said, that the use of incense and perfumes in churches, so ancient and so universally received in all nations and religions, was intended to cheer us, and to rouse and purify the senses, the better to fit us for contemplation” - Montaigne

    Voleur de Roses, try it someday it really works
    But once you get locked into a serious perfume collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

    Have to say, after sampling it more extensively, I feel that French Lover by F. Malle would be a scent I'd consider wearing in this type of setting

    x2. I’ve been wearing French lover on rainy days this spring and it’s wonderful. The humidity really brings out the vetiver.
