Well, Armani Eau pour Homme is the only frag in my collection with only 1 star,
Clinique Happy I'm not a huge fan of, Lalique White ... say what?!
That leaves Eau Sauvage - not a winner in my book, but still the best in this lot!
Citrus is not a family that I properly master, but from that list, my favorite one is lalique white, that to me seems like a non-gourmand version of allure edition blanche.
Eau Savage, from your list.
Of choice's listed, I'd have to go with Eau Sauvage.
Don't panic. Just stay calm, and reload....
I wouldn't vote for any from the list, sorry. There's many far better Citrus Aromatics out there.
Armani Eau pour Homme
ointments and perfume delight the heart....
Another vote for Armani Eau pour Homme.
I'm not sure I know what citrus aromatic means, but the best citrus heavy scent I know of is hermes' orange verte
Eau Sauvage- love it.
Of those, Eau Sauvage.
Eau Sauvage with Armani Eau pour Homme close behind.
Although Armani PH is my absolute favorite, for me, it is a quite close draw between APH and Eau Sauvage
Geoffrey Been's Bowling Green should have a picture in the dictionary under the word " aromatic "
Yes, it has citrus as well.
Versace l'Homme vintage formula (um pre-2009?) is also great and, like saripatates who is unsure whether Eau d' Orange Verte qualifies,
I am equally unsure if Cerruti 1881 or Lowe Para Hombre qualify as aromatic.
I'm told in the reviews that they have a ' Mediterranean ' quality to them, As does Iskander--which may amount to the same thing, or close to the same thing, or perhaps not---but they smell great.
Bois de Cedrat by Creed, which lasts a long time and Acqua di Parma which doesn't; but it's so damn good you don't care, should really be mentioned as well.
And so, I did.
Eau de Guerlain
"...The history of perfumery before this subdivision of niche was manufactured, both literally and imaginatively, is a long one, with thousands upon thousands of fragrances. The true fragrance lover takes each fragrance one at a time, and examines it preferably outside of the imaginatively manufactured categories and, in doing so, builds up a steady, informed basis for seasoned comparative judgments based on the sampling and information gathered from such sampling. This is why any one on the board who ever has anything particular interesting to say about fragrances as fragrances rather than as categorical constructs always has an abiding interest and passion for all kinds of fragrances and not just a narrow niche of fragrances. Conversely, the "niche whores," the more and more narrow their interests become, the more and more they mimic the ad copy of the very companies they worship. I know whose posts I like to read..."
“Perfume is decidedly not about two things: it isn’t about memory and it isn’t about sex. Perfume is about beauty and intellect,” .......... “A perfume is a message in a bottle—not a smell—and the message is written by the perfumer and read by the person who smells it.”
