Delicious, almost edible citrus, followed by a layer of cardamom, moss and wood that warms up my skin wonderfully.
Once the citrus has passed it does get quieter and it could last longer too, but what it does have is so lovely that I would forgive it the failings in longevity and sillage.
If you don't fancy buying the scent I can also very much recommend the hand wash and hand lotion, which are lovely quality and perfume your hands for hours afterwards, leaving you inhaling the scent from your hands in a way that looks vaguely disconcerting to others.
Opens with harsh lemon that quickly mellows revealing a nice minty heart note with some cardamon. It's okay for the first 20 minutes or so but fades faster than a rain drop on a hot pavement leaving behind something that's perfectly respectable but barely perceptible.
It's far too weak and I don't think there has been enough attention paid to the middle and basenotes to sustain interest. Not worth the high price.
You want citrus, well then here you have it - wide-screen. Sumptuous, round, warm, yet fresh and bright. all very nice to my nose - others maybe not. Can get a bit to much after a while - like a faithful puppy dog following you round all day.
I usually find citrus scents nauseating and migraine-inducing, however I smelt this on a male friend of mine and thought it was gorgeous! Unfortunately though it turns out my chemistry must be very different as it smelt like a completely different scent on me and had no staying power at all. For me D&G's Sicily works a LOT better, and has a much less weighty price tag too! I've given it 4 stars though as it doesn smell divine on my male friend.
This opens with excellent, lovely citrus notes. These are very fresh and true, and have a tart green tone. The scent then moves into its herbal phase. This is well blended, being a green chord rather than distinct elements. The drydown is gentle and subtle, with very mild spices and hints of wood. This is a classy EDC – nothing particularly new or innovative here; but everything is well done.
As much as it pains me to be a dissenting voice in amongst so many esteemed reviewers, I absolutely loathed Citron Citron. The opening few minutes gave me Bratwurst and black pepper, which made me wonder whether this fragrance should not be called "Imbiss". As I write this some hours later, I cannot get beyond the pepper sensation, with only a soupcon of citrus to sweeten the pill. With the numerous citric ingredients, I am surprised how lacking in freshness this is. This is an ill conceived blend with no redeeming features.
