    I enjoy the citrus in summer, but they do tend to be gone, quick. Eau d'Hadrian, which seems ideal for the office, went only 1.5 hrs for me. Input appreciated, as always, thanks j

    Citrus tends to be fleeting, unfortunately, and there's little one can do. Pretty much, one has to reapply as needed through the day.

     

    In the past, some citruses were mixed with an oakmoss base, which helped with longevity (though the perfume wasn't purely citrus after a while, but sort of citrus-mossy). Eau d'Hadrien itself was one of those, as was chanel pour monsieur (regular) and Eau Sauvage. But oakmoss is now restricted so all of them have been reformulated.

    Bond Eau de NY. Oranghe and musk. Smells great and lasts all day on me. Eau Sauvage is nice as well and get 6 hours about.

    From my collection:

    Bond No.9 Eau de New York.
    I get 8-10 hours.

    Neroli Portofino by Tom Ford.
    I get 8-10 hours.

    Acqua Di Parma Colonia Assoluta.
    I get 7-9 hours.

    New reformulated Dior Eau Sauvage.
    I get 5-7 hours. Surprisingly.

    YSL Pour Homme Haute Concentrée.
    I get 10-12 hours SOLID !
    And this is a cheapie. An awesome cheapie IMHO outranking all of the above frags. For $30-$35 for 100 ml

    I was surprised by the longevity of Adam Levine for Men. The citric notes, mainly grapefruit, stayed a long time on my skin. If you want a nice, simple grapefruit scent mixed with ginger, it's worth a try.

    Agua de Loewe lasts a good 8-10 hours on me

    Terre d'Bois and Cravache remain lemony for a while.

    But like Cacio says, wear a cologne and keep topping it off.

    john varvatos artisan sure doesn't last long.

    Issey Miyake lasts a long time.

     

    As an alternative to smelling like loads of others people, try Eau de Rochas which is a fantastic summer scent with the citrus underpinned by Basil, which always holds citrus up well on my skin.

     

    The ultimate hot weather scent, Rocabar. Last well too.

    Forgot about Eau de Rochas.
    It's awesome. And a cheapie.

    And I bought 100 ml for $40
    Then saw the 200 ml on sale for $38, bought that too.

    I get 6-8 hours solid longevity from this hidden masterpiece of a cheapie designer frag and I rate this scent 8.5/10

    I just noticed that Eau d'Hadrien is available as an EdP (my sample is EdT). Anyone know if the EdP version runs a little longer?

    Issey Miyake. Stuff lasts forever. But in a good way.

    Seconding almost any ADP fragrance, beginning with the regular EDC, also Mugler Cologne and Eau d'Orange Verte do have, at least to my nose, a great citrus longevity during summer.
