    Default What is The Best Lemon Fragrance?

    Hello out there in Basenotes land!
    I hope you can help, and I'm sure you can. I'm trying to find a lemon based fragrance that is just that...LEMON. Lemon from start to finish. One that goes on smelling like fresh lemons and stays that way. As close to the real thing as possible. A lot of frags have lemon topnotes that are wonderful but disappear within ten minutes. Awaiting your expert advice!

    Monsieur Balmain would seem to fit the bill.

    One of those Diptyque eau de colognes that come in 200 ml bottles -- can't remember which one of the three it is, but one of them is just straight up a very natural-smelling freshly sliced lemon.

    The lemon is very long-lasting in Dior Homme Sport.

    Do you want the lemon to be purely the smell of lemon juice or do you want some zestiness (from the rind) to it? It is a different olfactory experience. Personally, I like the zest. Not the most affordable, but one of the best is Profumum's Acqua Viva.

    Chanel Allure Homme Sport Cologne. It smells like the mist from a lemon if you were to peel one. EB and Sport is a more creamy lemon but Sport Cologne is FRESHHH

    +1,000,000 on Monsieur Balmain.

    Also, Armani Eau Pour Homme, Chanel Pour Monsieur, Eau Sauvage, and YSL Pour Homme (I dunno if you've tried these or not)

    Eau de Guerlain is a great all-around lasting citrus. And yes, Chanel Allure Homme Sport Cologne.
    SEEKING BOTTLES OF:

    Aramis New West (preferably old bottle)
    Patrick by Fragrances of Ireland
    Azzaro Aqua
    Gloria by Cacharel

    PM me if you have bottles that you're willing to sell or trade!

    The previous recommendations are all perfumes with a lemon note, if you want LEMON from start to finish, there is only one:
    C.O. Bigelow Apothecary Lemon No. 1999

    http://www.basenotes.net/ID26131172.html

    a close second is C.O. Bigelow Apothecary Winter Lemon.

    Give Tuscan Soul a try too.

    Damn, how come I never remembered Tuscan Soul, one of first fragrances I owned. It's a lovely unisex indeed! Fresh citruses, kind of elegant too.

    Limes by Floris. Just limes and some lil bit of flowers.

    Chemically, it's difficult to get a citrus note to stick around for long, so they typically become woody as in Patou PH or YSL PH. You're not going to find what you're looking for at the high end. The previous suggestion for Lemon from CO Bigelow is a good one, as is, to be honest, plain old Jean Nate. Be sure you try before you buy any of the others suggested here as many of them have minimal lemon.

    ...and kudos to those who have brought up Ferragamo's Tuscan Soul. Not a true lemon, but a wonderful eau fraiche type fragrance that doesn't get nearly as much talk/praise as it should!

    Definitely the zest of the rind too!
