    Hey there,

    Since Spring is right around the corner, I am looking for a new citrus. What are your favorites?

    Which ones have you tried and/or purchased already? Would hate to waste your time suggesting things you already have an opinion on..

    Neroli Sauvage is a good one. Sample it if you get a chance.

    I really want to try this one. Hopefully PalmBeach will split it again soon. You listening, Rich?!

    Also, I like Bond's Nouveau Bowery. Very much similar to Jo Malone Lime, Basil and Mandarin but with better longevity.

    +1 on the L'humaniste. It's bright without getting airheaded and sweet without getting syrupy.

    I recommend seeking out a bottle of vintage Eau de Patou by Jean Patou. On Ebay, bottles still sell for around the same price one would spend at full retail for most current designer releases.
    Current Top Favorites:
    1) Portrait of a Lady original formula (EdP Frdric Malle)
    2) Giorgio for Men vintage/V.I.P. for Men (Giorgio Beverly Hills)
    3) Dia Man vintage edt (Amouage)
    4) Les Nombres d'Or Vetyver (Mona di Orio) - tie
    4) Lalfeorosa (O'dri) - tie

    6) Anat Fritz Original Formula and Classical (Anat Fritz)
    7) Captain vintage (Molyneux)
    8) Tzora (Anat Fritz)

    Three good ones.

    Regarding Armani Eau Pour Homme....the 2013 (new) release is very good, high quality juice. I own a bottle and have no problem recommending it. It's close to the original, and much better than (any of) the reformulation of the original (1984) release.
