    Smile Are there any good grapefruit fragrances?

    I just bought St. Ives Energizing Citrus bodywash and it's great. A real awakening scent for my morning shower. I've done some searching and have only come up with D&G light blue pour homme and Mark Ecko. Considering light blue's rating, any other suggestions would be much appreciated.

    There used to be a Comptoir Sud Pacifique EdT which was rather remarkable in its authenticity.

    I forgot its name.

    Aqua Allegoria Pamplelune by Guerlain

    Of the available masculines, this is my favorite.

    I Love Love by Moschino is also excellent. This one is considered femminine, but I wear my wife's often. Fruity, citrus, and a little floral. Here are the notes:
    Top notes of orange, lemon, grapefruit, and red currant.
    Middle notes of rush, lilly of the valley, tea rose, and cinnamon leaves.
    Base notes of tanaka wood, musk, and cedar wood
    Haikus are easy
    But do not always make sense

    I thought my bottle of Nina Ricci Club (haute concentration) was lemon but re-reading various blogs some say its grapefruit. At any rate, this ones not a real fresh\light one to my nose. Seems to have more of the thick rind to it -more of a meaty citrus. Nice though.

    +1 for the Guerlain.( with lots of vanilla though )
    Fresh Hesperides- a fantastic fresh delicious grapefruit - no vanilla - just citrussy - addictive- unisex.
    I also use the shower gel- just the same in smell- really does help wake you up .

    Gotta go with 30 Roses with Hermes Eau de Pamplemousse Rose. An unbelievably realistic pink grapefruit scent. Sadly it may beat it's sibling, Eau d'Orange Verte, for the shortest longevity crown. Fantastic while it lasts.

    Alright, I will give my personal imput of a well made grapefruit. I'd say Bulgari Pour homme extreme.
    At first i was like, wheres the grapefruit? It smells very much just like green tea. (this was when i sampled it at stores, mayb weird bottle i dunno).

    After i bought it, same thing, it was a light (i imagine bright white/light green citrus) grapefruit and iw as like hhh want more citrus.
    But then the weirdest thing happened, after a few more sprays, it became pure grapefruit on me. No more tea, etc etc, it was pure grapefruit. Sour, sweet, citrusy. Very very very citrusy. Get a compliment from a girl everytime i go out.

    Another vote for Guerlain's Pamplelune. Also Kiehl's makes a nice grapefruit rollerball and of course Calyx from Prescripives.

    Energizer by Boadicea the Victorious is a very fresh and an intense citrus with strong grapefruit. I'm never without a botte of this and it lasts a very long time once sprayed.

    Citrus Paradisi sounds great - I've been dying to try - does it smell completely clean ? The two reviews on Luckyscent mentioned 'animalic ' , BO and skank . Put me off for a bit. Skanky grapefruit ?

    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.

    It has definite civet note to it (and it is posted in the list of notes). Not the boldest civet, but certainly noticable.

    Agree on the recommendation. There is a rhubarb note in here as well and it of course has a touch of rose. But the grapefruit is quite nice.

    +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.
