    Ineke - Derring-Do! While not so completely linear, but yet, the citrus lasts... and lasts... and can be felt from a distance!

    They don't exist because they violate the laws of physics.

    Citrus compounds are very volatile and have reasonable odor thresholds, hence they fly off the the skin within 1-2hrs and don't seem to last.

    The stuff that does stick around are heavy/sticky molecules with low odor thresholds such as musks and Vanilla/coumarin/amber type stuff.

    I`d suggest some Eau d`Hadrien Annick Goutal, Eau de Guerlain, and Eroica by Kanebo

    They are not only citrus, but still good.

    Like Ged, I get fantastic longevity out of Acqua di Parma. I'm also content with the duration of Signoricci and Dior's Higher, but I think it's the wood bases of those two that give the effective illusion of enduring citrus. YSL PH Haute Concentration does pretty well too, but isn't entirely citrus. For a dirty, slightly floral citrus Patou's Eau de Patou is a good one with pretty decent duration. Moustache by Rochas doesn't do a bad job either.

    Acqua di Parma Colonia
    Monsieur Balmain
    Tova Cologne for Men (no kidding)
    Crown Imperial
    Trumper's GFT
    Villoresi Acqua di Colonia
    Creed Selection Verte

    These all have good citrus longevity on me. Tova is the most linear, the Brits tend to go powdery, AdP Colonia has a floral dry down (the citrus hangs on, though).
    The Eaux De Guerlain, Hermes Eau d'Otange Verte, Farina Gegenüber, Trumper's Limes are all wonderful, but rather short lived on me. If you like Neroli I'd suggest Berdoues Extra Vieille from France, it's quite lasting for an EdC.

    Acqua Viva by Profumum (however, you must like lemon notes because AV is not a citrus blend, it is only lemon)

    Crown Imperial fits your criteria completely!

    Boucheron pour Homme (esp. in its edp form) and Chemistry by Clinique come to mind right away.

    How about YSL pour homme.

    Thumbs up on the Tova for Men!! Gald to see some other people know this frag.

    Hugh Parsons Traditional (blue) "works"!

    And I agree that a woody base either makes it last longer or makes it seem like it does.
    Lately I've been wearing:
    Windsor, Bois de Santal, Original Santal, Elixir, Douro, Endymion, Reflection, Arcus, Marwah

    Montana pour Homme (in Blue box)

    This is a very nice citrus scent and is fairly long lasting.

    I second Armani PH, Live Jazz and Loewe Solo. Don't remember if I suggested these: D&G Masculine, Moschino Friends and Eau De Rochas PH.
