    Default Best Citrus and Woody Cologne?

    Something under 70 preferably, but if you definitely insist on one that costs more, then please do tell!

    Just in case you hit the lotto, you should know the best in this category.

    Kobe
    Eau de Parfum
    by Xerjoff




    The Scoop
    In Kobe, Xerjoff created something unusual, yet somehow inevitable: a dry citrus, warm woody fragrance for men. Kobe smells like a finely crafted wooden box full of vividly scented citrus rinds. The wood of the box is of the best quality and from a mix of exotic trees, and the citrus peels inside are remarkably potent, but play more as spice than fruit. This marriage of tart and spicy with sweet and warm is what makes Kobe such a singular fragrance.

    Kobe opens with a bracing grapefruit rind note rounded out with petitgrain (an oil extracted from the green twigs of the bitter orange) and bright neroli. It feels fresh and alive, like opening a window on a crisp morning to an orange grove in early spring just as tight blossoms begin to push from the orange trees. After a few minutes, green wood begins to join the sharp citrus. The wood seems to age and sweeten over time to become more resinous and balsamic, transforming Kobe into an extraordinary, deep woody scent. It isn't just any wood, though. A vein of oud, an unusual, intimate aroma, runs through the fragrance of shaved rose wood. Fresh and warm, sweet and tart, Kobe is a fragrance for any time and anywhere.



    Kobe Notes
    Calabrese bergamot, Florida orange, Southern Italian neroli, Paraguayan petitgrain, rose wood, resins, oud wood, palisander, tonka, amber

    John Varvatos -- Artisan

    A great reasonably priced woody citrus that's criminally underrated, IMO.

    Play by Givenchy - Citrus abounds in the opening, with bergamot, mandarin orange, bitter orange and grapefruit. This wonderful interplay of semi-sweet and semi-bitter flavors, with an undercurrent of woods, is refreshing. The wrestling of the citrus and wood tumbles to its middle. The spicy heart usurps the citrus opening with its pepper, amyris wood and coffee flower, forming a musky, spicy and woody radiance, arousing a sexy aura. The oft-seen patchouli and vetiver base blends with the heart nicely, mellowing the woods and spice, and leads to its alluring drydown. This is a well balanced composition, and has very good longevity and projection.

    Long lasting favourites include Versace Green Jeans (if you can find it), Rochas Lui, Cerruti 1881 and Tonino Lamborghini (the original, not the later cheaper ones).

    If not Terre De Hermes then consider, Chanel's Edition Blanche, a natural lemon scent over woods.
    Think lemon cream pie

    The first two I thought of were Terre d'Hermès and John Varvatos Artisan.
    Since these are both pretty readily available, I'd try before you buy.

    Egoiste!



    ....also New York.

    ETA......I don't know if Egoiste even has any kind of citrus note but when I wear it I think of sweet and tart orange or lemon, with spices, rose, and woods.

    Not very popular hereabouts but Guerlain Homme is pretty good at the price.

    Yardley Citrus and Wood is another good option!
