    The obvious answer would be AdP Colonia Assoluta, but I don't regard it 100% citrus scent.
    But what a true citrus and very good is Parfums de Nicolai Cologne Sologne. Breath-takingly beautiful, alas too short-lived.

    How would you compare this one (especially the lemon/citrus notes) to:
    1. Blenheim Bouquet
    2. Bowling Green
    3. Allure Blanche
    4. Bois De Cedrat

    Which lemon most closely resembles the Trophee lemon in sweetness/acidity ?
    And is the base herbal/green like the first two, or dry like 3&4 ?

    If you don't mind, can you make a likewise comparison for Monsieur Balmain to the 4 aforementioned lemon notes?

    They all pale in comparison with Monsieur Balmain´s strong and durable lemon note and it´s wonderful sandelwood drydown!

    Monsieur Balmain was a scrubber for me.

    My citrus staple for summer months is Montana Pour homme (blue box).....It's dirt cheap and longevity is amazing....the drydown is very musky however...

    Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and sorry I could not travel both and be one traveler, long I stood and looked down one as far as I could to where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair, ...... I shall be telling this with a sigh somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -- I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference. - Robert Frost

    I couldn't believe how much I didn't care for Monsieur Balmain after hearing all the praise it receives on BN. Lemon furniture polish was what I got out of it and was an instant scrubber.

    This one is great. Only to be edged out slightly by Neroli Sauvage, my all time favorite citrus. The Monegal Naranjas and Mark Birley tied for third, but neither last as long.

    I am arriving at the conclusion that the Holy Grail of Citrus scents is:

    Chanel Eau de Cologne.
    Current Top Five:

    1. Creed Green Irish Tweed
    2. Tom Ford Neroli Portofino
    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
    4. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
    5. Creed Original Vetiver

    Of course, no edt can surpass a true cologne when it comes to the beauty of citrus, for colognes submit to the very effervescence and brightness that makes citruses so attractive in the first place. My own vote goes to Imperiale. However, for what I think of as a 'fortified citrus', I have found nothing better than Blenheim Bouquet. The citrus top is remarkably refreshing - and combines most enjoyably with the pine below it.

    Le Labo Bergamote 22 -- smooth, nothing sharp, and doesn't have that bathroom cleaner vibe that most citrus fragrances have.

    Orange Sanguine probably, but it's too weak still.

    If Azure Lime lasted longer it'd be the perfect citrus scent
