    Default Poll: Classic Gentlemens Citrus that you enjoy the most

    Summer is still with our Southern Hemisphere friends, and is something us Northern Hemisphere people need to keep in mind, to look forward to (how else do you make it though the Winter?)

    To get everyone here thinking of lazy, hazy days in the sun, even if they are currently at ten below zero and wearing longjohns , how about some thought on those Classic Citrus fragrances that take inspiration from the original Eau de Cologne, that are elegant, formal, for the more discerning Gentleman...

    I have tried to include the usual suspects, even though I think a couple of these dont belong.

    BTW, vote for the one you enjoy the most, and by all means post a reply to say why.

    Classic edc-style?
    Castile, Eau Sauvage and Colonia from that list.
    But these imo, are the supreme edc-style classics:

    R&G Extra Vielle

    honorable mention:
    Creed Citrus Biggarade
    Guerlain Imperiale

    Just for the record (and mostly because I'm really anally retentive) it's Acqua di Parma, not Palma.

    Armani Eau pour Homme- anytime, although I pretty much enjoy to wear most of the frags on the list

    From your list, I voted for Dior's Eau Savage. It just seems very well constructed and very distinguished.

    I'm sorry, but there are way too many great frags included in this poll for me to choose among them.

    I agree with Noggs, but I voted for Signoricci just to stick up for it.

    Tough choice indeed. I went with Acqua di PARMA Assoluta, but could have just as easily picked half a dozen others.

    Oh balls... Not only a typo, but a typo I then cut and pasted into the next field! Sorry guys.

    I've also got Palma on my mind because I'm planning a city break there.

    I don't suppose someone could tell me how to edit the labels on a poll? This is the first one I have done.

    Fair enough

    I've not yet tried Castille, Signoricci or YSL PH. I like all the others so I'd agree with you, they are all enjoyable. Just some are a bit more enjoyable than others.

    I own Armani PH, but it was a present from my then g/f, now wife, before she got me big into fragrance and I tried any of the others. It's one of her favourites. I don't think she really bought it for me, she bought it for her to enjoy when I wear it.

    My favourite is Colonia Assoluta, then Colonia, then MdG, then the Armani. Don't tell her

    I voted for Monsieur de Givenchy just because I always forget about it and when I wear it I remember how wonderful it really is... Truth be told, I have about 8 favorites that all are tied as my favorites. Monsieur de Givenchy is a perfect citrus that is also a chypre, much like Chanel pour Monsieur (one of my favorites too) but with a bit of rose at the heart. Very tasteful and wonderful.

    +1 for Boucheron Pour Homme: bottled class.

    Eau Sauvage is what I prefer best.

    Though I haven't tried the Versace, Boucheron and Nina Ricci. And there are a few others on that list, namely the AdPs that are very impressive to me as well.

    Voted for Signoricci along with DustB, but also agree with mrclmind and his endorsement of Monsieur de Givenchy.

    OK, someone has spotted one of the ones I wasn't sure belonged in this list. Let's see if someone points out the other one.

    Well, I personally don't consider Boucheron a citrus fragrance per se, even though it has a huge citrus component, it is more of a floral fougere/chypre hybrid. Cerruti 1881 is more of a woody aromatic fougere than a pure citrus as far as I'm concerned too.

    Eau Sauvage, but where's Monsieur Balmain and Eau de/Concentree d'Orange Vert?

    Bleh, so many typo's in this poll! (*ahem* Castile!)

    Anyways, my vote goes to Penhaligon's Castile, such a robust citrus!

    I must say that citrus, as a whole, is a category I have a hard time warming to. I often find the top notes too simple, and the drydowns weak to non-existent. Most citrus fragrances I truly enjoy only have citrus as one element, and the real body of the fragrance rests with the other notes.

    That being said, the mention of Nina Ricci brought to mind Club Haute Concentration, a fragrance of this style I found very pleasant wearing. It's a light citrus drying down to a powdery cypress similar to Cypres Musc.

    Not a fan of citrus, but Armani Pour homme is best from your list.

  24. #24

    Default Re: Poll: Classic Gentlemens Citrus that you enjoy the most

    I voted for YSL Pour Homme, but my favourite in the category as a whole is probably Monsieur Balmain.

    I voted for Monsieur de Givenchy. It has this old-world Edwardian vibe goin' on that I really admire.
    I'm not sure I like it any more than at least a half a dozen others on your list, but I had to choose only one.

    I'll take a stab at the challenge and say I tend to think Eau Sauvage Extreme isn't exactly a citrus.
