There are so many gorgeous scents in the market today but not all are suitable for hot climates.
Living in the tropics means that its hot, humid and that it can be quite rainy too. Therefore, heavy scents with more oak, chocolate, musk and woody tones for example, are much more suited to cold climates. This is because those smells stronger and more over-powering so that they can cut through the cold and layers. Wearing these types of fragrances are too heavy and sticky for a sweaty summer day as they do not come across as light and fresh.
These on the other hand, are some excellent choices:
