    Eau Savage by Dior in the black bottle (extreme perhaps ?) but like all the other winners it is hard to find.

    8. Nicolai Cologne Sologne - extremely unique and superb quality EDC
    This one sounded interesting and a quick search on it for reviews revealed an even more encouraging description. The problem is that it is not avaiable in the usual decants I prefer for something I've not smelled. The Perfumed Court and Posh Peasant do not have it. So availability might be a limitation for this suggestion...

    Nina Ricci Signoricci - a citrus, but not overwhelmingly so, with sillage and lasting power.

    Allure Homme Sport - Citrus and woods.

    M7 Fresh - One of the longest lasting orange fragrances I've tried.

    Concentre Orange d' Verte Hermes - Very nice orange note, but doesn't last that long.

    Original Vetiver Creed - One of the best citrus and green fragrances avaliable.

    Pour Monsieur by Chanel (the original).....beautiful citrus notes that develop further as the middle and base notes come through. This still remains one of my favourite Chanel fragrances. It seems to work with my body chemistry.
    Essenza di Zegna by Ermenigildo Zegna......a bit more tart citrus opening that lingers as the other notes come through.

    Thanks guys for all of the suggestions. This past weekend I sniffed a few of the Creed fragrances suggested: Green Irish Tweed, Selection Vert, Imperial Millesime, and a few others. Surprisingly my favorite of the three mentioned was actually Selection Vert. Your suggestions were very helpful. Thanks again!

    I say go 'Italian' when it comes to citrus-dominant scents; the use of aromatic herbs go a long way in enhancing citruses' short-lived profiles. Some of my favorites:

    Uomo by Lorenzo Villoresi Uomo
    Acqua Santa by La Via Del Profumo
    Nio by Xerjoff
    Bergamotto Calabro by I Profumi di Firenze
    Currently wearing: Royal Mayfair by Creed

    I also really enjoy Farina Gegenüber's original EdC from 1714 - the cologne that started it all and defined the genre. Interesting for historical reasons for the way it broke with the heavy and cloying scents of former times, but also a very nice, modern, and wearable scent in itself today even without the historical machinery surrounding it. Light, floral, citrusy - a baroque Eau Sauvage...

    Interesting comment. Do you find that these "italian" scents are sweeter than other citrus blends ? I am highly attracted to citrus scents but have major longevity issues with them. I've come to the conclusion that I need a fougere fragrance with enough
    longevity (minus harsh oriental smells) that projects enough of a citrus aroma.

    Green woodsy floral seems to be my alternative these days providing me with more longevity.

    Loewe por homme was interesting on me but didn't have the best longevity.

    I was praying that Moschino Uomo was my scent...it could have been but it just wasn't potent enough on me.

    Nio by Xerjoff because it truly smells like and transports me to and italian orchard Royal Water by Creedbecause it's wearable in the heat like any other citrus but has a sharp awakeness to it that separates it from other laid back citruses

    If Mugler Cologne counts as citrus it's cause it lasts eternity and smells amazing.

    Terre D'Hermes because it isn't synthetic and headache causing like most citrusy openings. Plus the entire fragrance is a masterpiece by Elena
