    For a 45 year old man, I agree with the recommendations for Miller Harris Le Pamplemousse and Parfums de Nicolai Balle de Match.

    Adam Levine for men is a grapefruit BOMB.

    Very linear, too.

    Yet another vote for Balle de Match - you just can't get a truer grapefruit vibe than this - it's like peeling a primo Texas Red and smelling the peel, the pith, the individual little bursting segments.

    Question to grapefruit-frag experts - how prominent is the grapefruit note in Lalique White?

    No expert here, but not prominent at all IMO. It takes a back seat to the tamarind.

    Parfums de Nicolai is the most realistic grapefruit scent you're going to find, and it has good quality ingredients at a fair price. But don't buy it at Lucky Scent, buy it at Parfum1.com so you can get 20% off with the code WELOVEYOUPW. They are an excellent online fragrance site.

    If you're not wanting to actually smell like a grapefruit and are wanting a great citrus fragrance that has grapefruit in it, the one to buy is Pure White Cologne, by Creed. Expensive, but very worth it. It's the classiest, longest lasting citrus fragrance around. It has become my favorite cologne. Look around....you might just find a split of it instead of paying Creed's prices.

    Creed Himalaya or if you want to go cheaper, Bleu de Chanel will work
    Well enjoying what you're wearing is crucial, it is of the utmost importance to wear something that others like as well.

    Bleu de Chanel (although the grapefruit isn't super noticeable to my nose)
    Guerlain Homme L'Eau is very fresh and minty

    How could I have forgotten this one: Dammuso by Profumi di Pantelleria.

    It's not completely grapefruit, it has some tea and musk. The standout in this fragrance is the subtle woodsmoke note that comes out as it's worn. Great combo with the grapefruit.

    Perfectly straight forward and relatively inexpensive grapefruit eau de cologne that lasts really well. One of the first AA's created by Mathilde Laurent and one of the few to be retained in the collection as a permanent item - justifiably IMO.
    This ^^ would be my first choice, but also worth checking out and still available on the net, (and not expensive !) are....

    A nice cheapy -- not earth-shattering but nice in hot weather -- is Paul Smith's Sunshine.

    edit: Now that I type that I'm worried it was a summer-only release. I hope I haven't given a rec that's impossible to find!

    re Lalique White: I agree with both sentiments here: A) not particularly grapefruity, and B) still very much worth trying.
