Italian Citrus is a citrus blend coupled with musk and an undefined sweetness, perhaps brought on by the mandarin orange, that reminds me of fig, though fig itself is nowhere found in the note breakdown. A unisex citrus warm-weather fragrance that might have a lot of appeal to different people but nonetheless does not sit well on my skin, where it comes off a little old and feminine.
Longevity and projection are decent, though, for a fragrance that seems to lean toward warm-weather usage. Still, this is another example of a D.S. & Durga EDP that strikes me as a bit pricey for what it is (at the standard cost of $145 for 50ml). Only their heavier options have so far (Bowmakers, Burning Barbershop) have struck me as potentially worthwhile at this price point. Nonetheless, intriguing to try.

Disappointing at all levels. Starts with a whimper and never excites. A dull citrus, definite violet leaf and some incense, but more dull than anything. Of no interest at any price.
Italian Citrus EDP is a delightful citrus fragrance. It smells fresh and clean. At first spray I smell a sharp blood orange, lemon/citrus. Soon it dries down to a perfectly rounded citrus fragrance. I am a huge fan of citrus based fragrances and I love this one. Perfect for the summer months here in South Florida.
