I like wearing Guerlain Vetiver in the Houston heat, but I've learned to be careful to not over apply.
Creed Selection Verte is the best I've found for hot and humid days.

How does Allure Homme Sport work in these occasions? I have AHS now and plan on using it a lot this summer

Creed Selection Verte looks good, dam $380?
Tommy Hilfiger Summer Cologne 2005 edition if you can find it
Another vote for 4711. Pour some in a hanky and wave it around your head.
I agree with Eau Sauvage and Guerlain Vetiver. These two are good in any climate, in my opinion.

I've just added Guerlain Aqua Allegoria HERBA FRESCA to the humid weather mix!!!!! Can't wait.
Acqua Di Parma...picture myself basking in a hot sun on an Italian beach when I wear this stuff.
I also like YSL Live Jazz(this stuff is a great deal). Opening is lemon, grapefruit and iced mint....very refreshing in summer.

Tom Ford Private Blend Neroli Portofino (Neroli)
I applied Neroli Portofino this morning and thought it was pretty much gone by the end of the work day, but after going for a run and working up a sweat the frag came back to life. When I had finished my run and stood dripping with sweat, I smelled as though I had just stepped out of the shower.
This frag reminds me a lot of Creed Original Vetiver which is another frag I have stocked up for the summer, but I don't know if OV has the staying power of NP. I will need to try running 12 hours after application of OV and see if I have similar results as I have had with NP. I also think that OV with it's soapy note would make a better wear in hot weather than the Guerlain, but I will have to wait for some hot and humid weather to put them to the test.
Guerlain Jicky - Fresh, but still a little dirty.
Dior Eau Sauvage - Eau de Cologne + jasmine and green herbs
Houbigant Fougere Royale
T&H West Indian Limes
Chanel Pour Monsieur
Givenchy Insense - Blackcurrant, aldehydes, citrus.

The one I save for the hottest days is Eau d'Italie's Magnolia Romana. Perfect for those awful days when even Eau d'Orange Verte seems cloying.
During my time in southern France I learned to love L'Occitane's classic "L'Occitan" fragrance on the hottest of summer days. It's not refreshing, but the lavender combined with pepper and earthy notes really makes for a stunning provenšal fragrance.
