    Default Rich citrus summer scents

    What are the richest deepest summer scents. Not sweet, not cloying but rich...depth...like a Tauer frag.

    Ex...Hanae Mori can be cloying, it's sweet not rich to my nose.

    Thanks

    One I've come to like and enjoy recently is South Bay by the Different Company.

    I find The One for Men works best in hot weather... and its definitely rich (not too heavy though) with the 'candied orange' accord. Guerlain Homme Intense is great for summer nights and has some depth and rich boozy quality to it (the citrus in this one is lime). I don't know if its necessarily 'rich' but Terre d'Hermes is definitely complex and unique... Works great in summer (both daily casual and formal events imho). Finally, I find Creed Virgin Island Water to be very rich for a tropical frag (great lime and rum combo with creamy coconut).

    Deep / rich citrus scents invariably don't last too long - needs re-application after a few hours.

    My picks will be Eau du Sud, Eau Sauvage edt, Terre d'Hermes, Eau d'Hadrien, rochas Moustache, Chanel PM concentree, Mouchoir de Monsieur - last 3 are not pure citruses per se...

    One unsung but very good citrus frag is Burt's Bees Natural Cologne. Citrus on an understated woody base which lasts appreciably.
    ointments and perfume delight the heart....

    A great, rich citrus scent that does have legs is Eau de Guerlain.

    Default Re: Rich citrus summer scents

    Great suggestions so far, I would also recommend Villoresi Uomo and Monsieur Balmain...

    For my summer citrus fix though I go to Guerlain Cologne du parfumeur, another real beauty and somewhat underappreciated, I think. Much richer than the average edc.
