I don't love to wear grapefruit and rarely wear anything with any degree of it, but I like Invasion Barbare (exceptional fragrance) and Terre d'Hermes (good with heat and sweat), both of which wouldn't be the nearly the same without grapefruit.

+6 on the Aqua Allegoria Pamplelune, which was my SoTD yesterday. Gorgeous scent, with perhaps the best longevity of the extensive series.
I will also recommend Nina Ricci's Memoire d'Homme, which is a sharp, sulfurous, metallic grapefruit, very similar in character to Terre d'Hermes. Memoire d'Homme also lasts a LONG time and is quite inexpensive.
+1 on the Hermes Eau de Pamplemousse Rose. Really nice while it lasts, which is not long I'm afraid.
I own a bottle of Terre d'Hermes but I'd hesitate to classify it as a grapefruit (dominant) scent. I'd look elsewhere if grapefruit is what I'm after.
Jo Malone's Grapefruit isn't bad. Eau de Pamplemousse Rose impressed me upon first try, and the second time around, I thought it was nice as well. Or atleast the top notes were. Thing is-I had my doubts about the longevity, because it didn't seem to be that prominent on my skin after about an hour after application. At the same time, I had tried several fragrances that day, so...perhaps olfactory fatigue had set in. I dunno. But the top notes were pretty nice though.
What was your impression of Hilfiger Athletics?
