    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.

    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.

    http://www.parfum1.com/parfums-de-ni...ums+De+Nicolai

    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.

    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.

    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.
