    Hey,

    I have been testing Etro's Shaal Nur all day (sample) and have decided that I love it. It has grapefruit in the top note according to Osmoz. However, the grapefruit is subtle. What I smell very clearly though is lemon zest (fresh grated lemon peel). I love the complexity of this scent and I love the drydown with beautiful incense and musk. Needless to say i went ahead and purchased it online today. I don't care of it's still winter in Minnesota, Shaal nur makes me feel like spring.

    Perscriptive's Caylx. I also love YSL's In Love Again, but there's a blackcurrant note.

    My favorite is Kiehl's Grapefruit Oil. I've had it for quite a while and it's held up pretty well. It lasts all day on me too.

    No one mentioned (perhaps I missed it) my very favorite grapefruit scent: Nicolai's Balle de Match Eau de Sport. Not sure if it's long lasting, but somewhat affordable at $60.
    Creeds Pamplemousse is nice as well, but much softer than the Nicolai's.

    Definitely get the Calyx -- good choice. For a scent on a shoestring, The Body Shop makes (or at least used to make) a very pleasant Grapefruit oil that can be diluted into an edp or an edt. To "tone it down," try a little of The Body Shop's White Musk, or perhaps their Japanese Musk.

    Peggy: "Yes, but he hit his head on a lawn gnome."

    I am in my fifties and got rid of my Angel because it smelled just like sweet grapefruit on me. (bops myself in the ear) I had always heard the scent that turns men on is hot buttered cinnamon buns. Oh well, got to go shopping again, heaven forbid I smell my age.

    I second Floris Pink Grapefruit. Doesn't remind me of a candle scent ... it almost has a fizzy bite if that makes any sense. I love it in the summer and feel it has good longevity for a citrus scent.

    I also love YSL Live Jazz (for men) -- unique grapefruit and mint/cilantro thing going on in this which is very refreshing.
