    Any recommendations for a nice citrusy grapefruit scent for a 45yo man?

    Parfums de Nicolai's Balle de Match is what you need.

    Jardin Sur le Nil is the only one I can recommend. Hot weather only. My caveat would be that it does not exactly exude mass quantities of testosterone. I like it, though, and my recommendation is sincere.

    Yup, Balle de Match. Nice longevity for a citrus scent, and very dry and masculine, rather than juicy and shampoo-like. One of my faves.

    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.

    I second Aqua Allegoria Pamplelune.

    One thing to remember about citrus is that they are fleeting. So typically the top is grapefruit, but after 30min the perfume move to something else, so don't judge based only on the first spray.

    Doesn't Creed Himalaya have a dose of grapefruit? Tried it the other day: pretty 'orrible, but most citrus isn't my thing.

    The Aqua Allegoria is nice, though.

    This is lovely

    Try seeking out Pomelo by Jo Loves
    Or for an animalic version -- Citrus Paradisi by Czech and Speake

    If you like vetiver, Grey Vetiver by Tom Ford might be worth looking into.
