    Balle de Match / L'Eau De Sport by Nicolaï

    My favorite citrus. I have plenty of other citrus fragrances, but now that I have Balle de Match I hardly ever wear them. Even when I exhausted my decant of Penhaligon's venerable Blenheim Bouquet which I used to adore I did not bother to replace it. Balle de Match even has decent longevity (for a citrus), at least on my skin.
    I never imagined I would ever crave a fragrance with grapefruit in it. By itself, I don't much like grapefruit, but in combination with lime and a little wood and something herbal (pink bay?) it's delightful. Notes listed for this stuff also include pepper, incense, and musk, but they must have been added with sufficient subtlety that my nose cannot resolve them.
