    If you don't like lemon scents, then I doubt you'd like TdH.

    If you took the time to read some of the reviews, your question would have been easily answered - mention of citrus, oranges, lemons, etc. in reviews (sometimes fragrance notes are conveniently listed, but not always)? Check... "Aw, forget it!" It's as simple as that.

    Oh, btw, TDH does contain citrus notes. So, you wouldn't like it...

    You will get a grapefruit vibe right off the top, then it will fade, but even into the drydown there is an earthy/orange thing going on for me. I love it, but you should test it out before buying it.

    I wouldn't define TDH as a citrusy scent - however you cannot avoid the citrus note that is 'part' of the scent...I smell oranges (not lemons). Try before you buy a full bottle. I bought a travel size on Ebay for cheap!

    Oranges are citrus fruits, just as grapefruits, lemons, tangerines...

    I don't mean this as an insult to TdH, the lemon I smell is the same as when you are drying a dish just washed in Joy. I really like it though, because it is complimented by the earthy dirt and gunpowder smell.

    i think is more floral than citric... amazing fragance, but i find some similar note with eau d rochas in the lemony base..


    awesome fragance, but really expensive..

    Kind of a bitter citrus and well worth testing. Be sure to test on your skin because it smelled much better on me than the test strip.

    For me I pick up the grapefruit note. Agree that it does not overdo the citrus scent though. A very nice scent. And as already mentioned, always test first , if you can.

    Oranges all the way when I smell this. I don't think it's coincidental that the colour orange features in the packaging.
