    Default Citrusy or fruity, smooth.. Recommendations?

    So I'm looking for a new scent for the office that's either citrusy or fruity and "smooth" smelling.. Going by descriptions, I thought Allure Homme Sport would be it, but even that's a little too spicy than I would like.

    Do you guys have any recommendations I can try?

    Thanks.

    If you were going to go with something from the Allure line, AHEB is a better bet. It's got a lovely smooth lemon that lasts a surprisingly long time.

    Outside of that, you can skip a lot of commonly mentioned citrus frags - Ferre Cologne, Bergamote 22 and even Eau Sauvage (despite my fondness for the latter 2) - as they're a bit ascerbic, at least in the openings.

    Jo Malone does some cracking (though exorbitantly priced and short-lived) citrus colognes, but they'd suit the office perfectly.
    Acqua di Parma's Colonia is quite smooth as well, as is my usual recommendation West Indian Limes by Crabtree and Evelyn.
    There's always Hermes' d'Orange Vert, too, which I'm sure will be mentioned a lot.

    I should probably mention I was thinking something designer and cheaper.. It is for the office, after all

    The Edition Blanche of Chanel's Allure Homme sounds like it.

    I'd suggest Eau de Cartier: citrusy, smooth, perfect for daily use.
    I know you'd like something from a designer but, in the same vein, try L'Humaniste (Frapin) if you have the opportunity to.
    Good hunting!

    Try passion men by Franck Olivier its apple and grapefruit, very fruity and smooth and cheap! Not sure if its available in your country though.

    Dolce Vita.

    No, really. Plenty of Peach/Apricot fruitiness, and buttery smooth.

    I have to disagree. I think Boucheron Homme is very sharp.

    My suggestion is Eau de Hadrien EDP. It is delicious and very smooth.

    or even smoother... Goutal's Les Nuits d'Hadrien. In fact, I'm going to go wear that right now...

    I'd vote for any of the ADP's, colonia being my favorite. They're probably slightly more expensive than most designers, but not overly so. If you have A Bloomingdales near you go take a sniff of the entire line.

    Bois 1920 Classic has citrus and apricot with vetiver. Very smooth but the apricot is a cock-up in this for me.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    I think both of these would work fine, both seem to have mint undertone which may be the smooth that he is looking for.

    I personally think Versace Pour Homme is the perfect office citrus scent.

    Live Jazz is a good one. More mint than citrus but it's smooth. One of my favorites. Also, try Millesime Imperial by Creed.
