    Default Looking for Icy Citrus fragrance...

    Hi everyone,

    Wondering if anyone could give me a recommendation for an icy citrus scent. I enjoy the smell of an ice cold glass of 7up and was wondering if your noses have come across anything similar?



    Let the suggestions fly!

    Cheers,

    The first time I smelled Eau de Cartier, I got an amazing feeling of like a sparkling vodka tonic with a citrus twist that had been peeled right next to me. I thought it was fantastic, and got a sample to take home. Since then, tho', I get a weird, unpleasant synthetic feel -- like the awful Bvlgari Omni Coral.

    So was it the sample? Or was it me? I have no idea. But you should try it, in case it works for you. Good luck.

    Citrus is a bit fuzzy definition for a frag. Are you looking for lime, orange, pink grapefruit, mandarin? No one knows lime quite as italian's. Acqua di Parma, Zegna vintage are good stuff for work and play

    I've always thought that Armani Code Sport smells a little like 7up
    but the one that really smells like 7up to me is Tommy Jeans by Tommy Hilfiger.

    Try Samba Ice Man. It's the "iciest" scent I have tried, and now that you mention it, it seems to have a 7-Up vibe to it. It's available for under ten bucks, so if you hate it you aren't out much money. I own it and like to wear it during the summer quite a bit.

    Creed SMW is just about perfect for you.

    If you're not looking to drop that much I can't recommend Luna Rossa highly enough. Bitter Orange, Lavender and Mint. It's beautiful, one of the best designer releases in recent memory.

    Stop! Here you have it: Eau Universelle - L'Occitane. [I wonder if I'm not a bit repetitive ]
    You also may like Verdon, from the same house, icy EDT, with peppermint. Personnaly, not my cup of tea but it could fit the bill...

    This sounds interesting...particularly because of the fizz vibe I'm looking for.

    Already own it, great frag, just don't get a fizzy or icy quality from it. More like a smooth lemon meringue

    Where do I find this one, I have been looking online but can't find it. Also, none of the retailers I've gone to have it.

    To find this you need to look for - Guerlain Homme L' Eau. A slightly different name than mentioned. I recommend this one too.

    Also, Serge Lutens Eau Froide fits the description of OP. Icy, cold citrus.

    Agree, my friend! Just sampled Universelle this weekend and REALLY enjoyed it. Perfect summer scent - sparkling, realistic citrus that brightens your day (but is gone within a couple hours). Pretty darn affordable too. +1!!!

    Yeah, and even if he does type it in correctly, it's going to be very hard to find. I have one backup bottle of it, and I had to search high and low for it. Occassionally Strawberrynet carries it, but they haven't had it in for a while. At this point maybe inquiring over the phone at some of the different Guerlain boutiques (especially the one in Canada) would be best. However, it's totally worth the effort if you can find it. One of the best out there.

    And +1 on L'Eau Froide. It's a very chilly fragrance.

    Not in my book, but there we go, can't please everyone.
    I just suggested Cerruti 1881 Amber on the citrus/rose thread and it might be worth a try as a cheapie. Iced rose with citrus and kind of sparkly..

    +1. I'll second this one. I think Summer Fizz is by far the best from the Cool Water line. It's like a fizzy citrus version of Cool Water with a light leather/suede note added in the base that mixes in to create a nice fizzy/powder effect.

    I should add, longevity was just a couple hours on the day I tested it. Haven't given it another shot yet, so hopefully I can get even more out of it. Either way, what an easy-wearing frag, perfect for summer!

    +1 for Frapin's l'humaniste. Definitely has that icy carbonated drink vibe going on.

    Nothing icy about Guerlain's L'eau. Also, it has a cumin note in it that is just gross. I don't get the love for this scent AT ALL.

    It's not quite 7-up but Play Sport is a chilly citrus. Another one worth checking out is David Beckham Homme. Very 7-up like to start. Not icy, however.

    For what i smelled, Guerlain Homme (still looking to get my nose on the flankers thou) it's fresh and gorgeous. Versace Eau Fraiche has a very cold and citrussy opening too.
