    Issey Miyake, especially the summer editions. They last a very long time

    I don't know about the A*men, but Parfum de Nicolai Cedrat Intense is one of my favorite citrus fragrances. It has a HUGE lemony opening, is warm, complex and lasts for about 5-6 hours on me. No other citrus I've tried will do that for me in the way Cedrat Intense does. Had I discovered this fragrance earlier on, I would have not purchased a few others. With the PdN line the focus is on the fragrance, not fancy bottles. The best values that I'm aware of in niche perfumery. Comes in 1oz. size too.

    Silver Scent is a citrus, but not necessarily a refreshing citrus.

    Last for 8+ hours, with HUGE sillage.

    I wouldn't describe Issey Miyake or Azzora Chrome as citrus scents. They are propably much closer to the aquatic-fresh genre. Riverwides Acqua di Parma is a good recommendation. I would like to add Monsieur Balmain, which offers for a citrus scent outstanding lasting power and good projection. Some kind of bottled sunshine.

    I equate them to "Something that last as long as A*men but more in the citrus, ocean type deal like hollister products", which is what the OP mentioned.

    I find the latest one Essenza to be the best of the lot in terms of scent, projection and longevity. Check it out! Assoluta is pretty strong too though.

    As I know, Essenza (as well as Assoluta) is Eau de Cologne concentration. So, I wonder how it can be that these frags last longer than most of EDTs frags. Just curious.

    I really can't answer that! I have absolutely no idea. All I know is that I find Assoluta and Essenza to be extremely long lasting. I'm always finding that scents fade too quickly, but not with these two! Very, very good longevity and good sillage too! That's been my experience anyway.

    Nicolai Cedrat Intense (I second that one), Guerlain Philtre d'Amour (Discontinued, but still somewhat available), Signoricci all have good longevity and projection (projectively!?!?!?!).

    How about Trumpers GFT? Indestructable lemon while also being quite sophisticated (tarragon, mandarin, lavender, etc). Take a look at the reviews here for more info.

    Usually citrus is a top note as most of them are fairly small terpenaceous molecules that have high volatility.

    One I recall lasting for a while was Paul Smith Story--in my experience, about 2.5-3 h at 25*C with the heart notes really running dominant past 2 hours, all wrapped up by 5-5.5 h. A bit heavy on the bergamot citrus for my taste though, but rather inoffensive I think. Some women really seemed to like it in the office. I think it has a little PineSol/Murphy's Oil Soap to it!

    Great scent, I wore this today. I put it on my neck at 7:45 a.m. today, went to school, got compliments as usual, came home, and went to basketball practice. My teammates and I could smell it the whole time and that was at 7:00 p.m.

    I think L'Eau d'Issey is the king in this zone. I've also been very happy with Signoricci and AdP Colonia.

    Wow so many to choose from, I see a few on azzaro chrome however I read up on youtube by marc a good Canadian review saying that there is so much better summer fragrance than azzaro chrome... it reminds him trying to compete with Adidas sport etc... is this true?


    I've used Ice men last year however I really didn't like how it didn't last, I would get 2-4 hours on a summer day... I want something that will last 7+ hours
    Thank you, deadidol

    Agree on YSL Pour Homme. I also get good longevity from Allure Homme Edition Blanche, which is lemony but not sweet on me like it seems to be on others. For a cheapie, Chester and Peck has an EDC citrusy smell with EDT longevity. None of these, except YSL, has huge projection and YSL's is good but not foghorn level.
