    I couldn't agree more on Iskander. It's great, but it's also remained a bit of a sleeper. The rest of my summer citrus favorites are:

    Bahiana, Eau du Sud, Ungaro II (though why Edwards lists Ungaro II as a citrus is sometimes beyond me), and (for evening only) Mandarine-Mandarin.

    Two from Rochas: Moustache**** and Eau de Rochas Homme*****. Both are very refreshing. Some consider Moustache a Fougère, but then it's a very citrussy one. Eau de Rochas is very light in character, but it's on my skin a good 8 hours. The best I can do to myself in summer other than go for a swim or shower under a traditional Eau.

    If you want to top those smells: go to the girls' counter and try Eau Fraîche ****** by Christian Dior. I am not saying it is any better than the ones mentioned, just different.

    Signoricci (2) - in a class by itself but not just lemon! It's on par with Chanels Pour M, but a lot 'younger' to me. If Botticelli's Primavera was a young man - that would be Signoricci. But she is a girl and smells of Calice Becker's Paradise (or beyond ..)

    Acqua di Parma and Happy I gladly second. But do not forget the divine Monsieur Balmain, Creed's Neroli Sauvage, Crown Spiced Limes, Capucci pour homme, and many more.

    Edit: any good classical Eau de Cologne is a nice option, such as Roger&Gallet Extra Vieille, Guerlain's series of Colognes, Farina Gegenüber, if you can get it, Nicolai's Cologne Sologne, or the very nice MPG pour le jeune homme.
    Spot on choices! I was going to mention Patricia de Nicolai's Cologne Sologne and Guerlain's classic Eau de Colognes. They all smell heavenly but, sadly, they also have fairly brief longevity. I recently had a chance to try Le Labo's Tubereuse 40, a new scent exclusive to their Manhattan SoHo boutique. I think that this is going to prove to be a killer summer scent, combinng the heavenly smell of the classic eau de colognes with a delightful use of tuberose and great longevity!

    I also have and love to wear Acqua di Parma Colonia (+Assoluta), Monsieur Balmain, Terre d'Hermes, Neroli Sauvage, Signoricci and Monsieur de Givenchy in the summertime. I will also once again feature my true darkhorse selection, Spazio Krizia Uomo. I've been loading up on this discontinued, increasingly hard-to-get Italian scent, because it is superbly crafted and is great for use in warmer weather. Spazio Krizia Uomo features crisp citrus, gentle fir (balsam), and refreshing herbs. I find it superb for warm weather, and different from what everyone else is wearing. Bottles are fast disappearing of this one.

    Not yet mentioned, but I lump Puig's Agua Lavanda and 4711 into the same category as the classic eau de colognes, and I also love to wear Hermes' Eau d'Orange Verte in the summer.

    I like many of the already listed fragrances, but my latest discoveries have been:

    Creed Aubepine Acacia (refreshing green floral - lemons, hawthorne,and acacia !)

    Truefitt & Hill Grafton (an uplifting lavender scent - perhaps the best barbershop fragrance around!)

    My favourite citrus scents are Armani Pour Homme, Eau Sauvage and CK One probably.
    Hermes Eau D'Oragne Verte is also great but I've never owned it since it's longevity is way too short.

    I'm really digging Guess Man now. Same with Issey, even moreso than before. 212 is pretty nice as well.

    Vetiver Eau Glacee (Frozen)
    Terre d'Hermes
    L'Eau d'Issey (To a much lesser extent as it's too popular and too similar to AdG)

    I expect to have a couple more frags from my wishlist by the summer. Citrusy ones I'm looking forward to trying/buying are Iceberg Twice, Pasha, Pasha Fraîcheur Menthe and Live Jazz.

    Terre d'Hermes-I have noticed this one on a few lists. The thing is I wore this once in high humidity and heat (which is regular in Bermuda in the summer months) it was a bit much and it did not work for me. I am not a fan of Hermes fragrances anyway..........

    Five pages, and nobody mentioned M7 Fresh yet? This thread is a singularity - could someone PLEASE modify the phase variance?

    Default Re: What is/are your favorite citrus fragrances for the summer?

    Fake...the problem is that the question wasn't list your favorite citrus fragrance that has been discontinued. Also, I don't think of M7 Fresh as a citrus scent. Sure, it has some citrus but it's mostly wood and incense. The opening accord to me is fruity but is citrus mixed with berry. I find that after just a short while, the fruit is mostly gone and I am left with M7. I personally, love M7...just plain M7 in the heat. On me it stays close to the skin.

    My favorite citrus at the moment is Querelle. It opens with a sparkly citrus and some wood but dries down to a wonderful vetiver.

    Well, I would have no problem to buy dozens bottles of M7 Fresh from different retail shelves within, say, two hours? As far as I'm concerned, it's not discontinued, it's just hard to get in some countries. Besides that, others have mentioned discontinued ones, too.

    I think M7 Fresh is as citrusy as a lot others mentioned here. I get lots of grapefruit initially and over time it fades into a less sweet, more subdued version of the original M7.

    I do love M7 Fresh as well..(.I did not include it in my initial list.. ) I got off the Cruise Ship in Grand Cayman last year and walked into a fragrance store and there it was M7 Fresh in abundance. After inquiring I was told that it is quite available in the islands.

    ....As I slowly wave goodbye to the month left L'eau Dissey I have, I must say it is a great summer warm weather fragrance. I believe you have a better effect in warmer weather with this scent than in winter months.

    I have it on now as I want to wear it and use the rest up. Will not buy it again though, going for new scents,

    When you sweat with this cologne on and it's drydown, it smells awesome. DO NOT be fooled by the initial spray which smells like a flowery citrus explosion. It wears away and in warmer weather it's awesome. I recommend it since I first smelled it when I went to Rome, Italy and the driver was wearing it back in 2001. It was in late July and the heat makes the cologne smell great for some reason.

    Good luck.
    The search for the perfect cologne is like a composer searching for the ultimate note.

    Guerlain Eau imperiale is really refreshing; not longlasting but some notes of rosemary and bay-tree remain perceptible few hours
    i would have said Eau d'orange verte; i had it few years ago but i've re-smelled it recently and i found it too sweet (far more sweet than in my memory... has it been changed?).
    Eau de Rochas PH: perfect for a young
    Les Nuits d'Hadrien by A.Goutal: on a hot summer night ...(i find it also suitable as a home fragrance)
