    Annick Goutal Eau d'Hadrien edp is my favourite.
    Hard work never killed anyone, but why risk it?

    It is a draw between:

    Acqua di parma colonia
    Eau d'Hadrien EDP

    - - - Updated - - -

    Eau sauvage is also very good, but it is too simple and doesn't last as long.

    Default Re: Your Favorite or Best Citrus

    I like several, but ones that stand out to me are:

    Eau d'Hadrien (EDT or EDP, very similar)
    Original Vetiver
    Orange Sanguine (for orange dominant citrus)
    Neroli Portofino (for, surprise surprise, neroli dominant citrus).

    This is very difficult choice to make between Colonia/Colonia Assoluta and Eau de Guerlain, but if forced to choose I would have to give top billing to the Guerlain.

    I agree, particularly on the basis of it as a citrus, simply because all other "citrus frags" that I have tried really just have the citrus notes on the top. Edition Blanche, for me at least, manages to keep the citrus all the way into the drydown. Though it is relegated to background work at that point it is still decisively there for me. I have yet to wear something else capable of such a feat... though I should note I have yet to try Concentre Orange Verte.

    If longevity is an important factor (as it is for me), vetivers are often the better citrus fragrances, e.g. Creed Original Vetiver, Guerlain Vetiver.
    BNIB: Pure Malt, Floris Vetiver, Vintage Rive Gauche pH, M7 gel, Roma (women's), MPG Racine, Obsession, etc.:

    Although many I adore such as OV and MI contain a citrus, its not what I think to be citrus prominent such as Eau D'Hadrien and the like. However, as long as it contains a citrus, I suppose its fair game. Here are some that I enjoy

    OV
    MI
    Mandarina Duck Man
    Tangerine Vert
    Central Park
    Nouveau Bowery
