    Exclamation Looking for ladies' citrus

    I'm looking forward to summer already, are you? I need some in a bottle.

    Bond no. 9 made a great citrusy something but I can't remember the name. Also, any other recommendations?

    I think the Bond you're thinking of is Little Italy. It's very citrus & would make a great one for layering. I've often considered buying the candle in this scent.

    For an all-around cheapie citrus, I think Mary Kay's Velocity is a great one.

    Floris Pink Grapefruit is one of my more recent summer faves.

    I'm not sure where you're located, but online, The Different Company can be found at Luckyscent, Luscious Cargo, Beauty Habit, etc. Annick Goutal can be found at Saks and other department stores. Floris can be purchased directly from their website.

    Thank you for posting the Floris link, sofresh. I got sidetracked earlier this morning, when I checked the Floris site and couldn't find Pink Grapefruit listed for sale. I apologize for recommending something that appears to have been discontinued, bernat!

    Suddenly feeling a little blue from learning this perfume may become difficult to find....

    L'Occitane has some citrusy fragrances in their Verbena lines.

    The most natural and real citrus I've ever sniffed was in Guerlain's AA Pamplelune.

    It isn't "juice box" citrus, it's natural, true grapefruit with some wood undertones. It's also surprisingly long lasting for a citrus scent which usually fades on me very quickly.

    I didn't get a sample until fall so I only got to wear it a few times before the colder weather set in, but I can't wait to whip it out next summer!

    Hope that helps.

    ^ I love Pamplelune as well, but beware, as some get a "body odour" note from it (I don't).

    Try Eau Des Merveilles by Hermes and Eau d'Orange Verte by Hermes . Both very good. Burberry Brit is also very citrisy.

    L'Occitaine also has a Ruban D'Orange collection which is supposed to be very good. I haven't tried it but my sister-in-law loves it.

    Pampelune is excellent stuff. I get the BO note occasionally but don't care. (Rebel!)

    The best ( IMO ) : EAU D' HADRIEN ( eau de Parfum ) by Annick Goutal

    Fragrancenet sells Annick Goutal and they often have discount codes.

    I'm a big fan of citrus fragrances espcecially in the Summer! Mandragore and Eau de Sud and Hadrian by AG are great. Also Stella Sheer and Ode a la Joie by Yves Rocher which, to me, smells like fresh cut grass and lemons!

    I adore Eau d'Orange Verte by Hermes, I got it for my husband but I sneak spritzes all the time.
