Index Pomegranate Anise by Fresh is so grapefruit prominent, I can't believe Fresh didn't put the 'grapefruit' name in the title because it is prominent grapefruit in the top, middle and dry down.
what about V-Tonic by fresh...i still have not heard of anyone trying this, but it has grapefruit all up in its grill
Reserve -Perry Ellis
Bvlgari Extreme -Bvlgari
Acqua di Roma Uomo is probably the best grapefruit scent I could remember, odd as I've never paid any attention to this note.
I really must try this one...I've only recently started looking into Nicolai and I like what I've smelled thus far.

To me, Dammuso from Profumi di Pantelleria is T H E grapefruit scent, it stays and stays and stays grapefruit-y on your skin, even if there is quite some musk involved in the base.
Calypso Homme by Christiane Celle
Peggy: "Right now, we have to get to the mental institution. Something terrible has happened."
Peggy: "Brother Boy has tried to kill himself. He jumped out of his bedroom window."
Latrelle: "Isn't he only on the second floor?"
Peggy: "Yes, but he hit his head on a lawn gnome."
Fr. Sordid Lives: The Series
"Live, live, live! Life is a banquet, and most poor suckers are starving to death."
Creed Zeste Mandarine Pamplemousse - grapefruit, bergamot, lemon tree bark and Sicilian tangerine.
Hesperides by Fresh is a mondo-grapefruit bomb.
Céline Pour Femme
Himalaya has some nice grapefruit top notes.
Biagiotti's Roma Uomo does not evoke grapefruit for me, but rather an orange-flavored Creamsicle™.
Not mentioned, though, and SCREAMING sulfurous grapefruit, is Nina Ricci's masterpiece, Memoire d'Homme!
Terre d' Hermes!
Lately I've been wearing:
Windsor, Bois de Santal, Original Santal, Elixir, Douro, Endymion, Reflection, Arcus, Marwah
I'd have to say Un Jardin sur De Nil again.....its supposed to be grapefruit and mango.....but i cant even tell mango is even present......and the grapefruit note remains dominant throughout all phases of the development including the drydown.
CDG 3 (The one you CAN'T find anywhere) for trade.
Full 4 oz Bottle of Silver Mountain Water(95% full) for trade(purchased at Nordstrom not online). PM me for details.

I grew up around mango trees (we had one in my backyard) and when I would get an unripe mango off of the tree and cut thru the tough peel the smell is exactly like UJSLN. NOT the ripe mango note (found in other fragrances, like Black Orchid), rather the tart, tropical and starchy green mango note.
Also Alex I think you meant to type ...Un Jardin Sur Le Nil.

Iceberg Twice PH.... Soft grapefruit note mixed with a bit of spice...
Balle de Match--no contest (in terms of grapefruitiness).
YSL Live Jazz.
Re: Terre d'Hermes....seems to have more of an "orange" citrus than grapefruit to me.
They added this friggin grapefruit note to Bulgari pour homme Extreme (it's even being mentioned on Bulgari's website) that destroys the whole experience for me. Others have liked it fine though.
Live Jazz - grapefruit + mint
Un Jardin Sur Le Nil strongly reminds me of Clinique Happy (for women), which also has grapefruit.
Sniff and let sniff.
Rochas - Aquaman one of the most unique aqua scents out thr with a prominent grapefruit note...
