    Default Aromatic citruses with exceptional longevity

    Looking for suggestions similar to Eau d'Hadrien / Eau du Sud / Eau Sauvage / YSL PH & PH Haute Concentration / Monsieur de Givenchy / Monsieur Balmain - but with much better longevity.

    I already have 1 in mind (Hadrien Absolu) & will be buying it blind for the upcoming summer, can use a few more such & hence asking for your opinions.

    As well - looking for thoughts / opinions about longevity on Nina Ricci's Signoricci 2 & Nina Ricci Bigarade. Appreciate any / all feedback...

    I own Signoricci 2 and the longevity is excellent. By the way I bought this in the Toronto suburb of Etobicoke - Woodbine Shopping Centre Mall many years ago. Had never seen it prior in the US.

    Thx Hednic, I actually have a source selling the Signoricci 2, good price too; but was waiting for some feedback on longevity. I'll try to remember Woodbine too - will be visiting in late spring / early summer time.

    Do you own the Signoricci 1 - thoughts?

    Try a sample of Acqua Viva from Profumum. One of my favorite warm weather fragrances.

    I totally agree with this. This is a great citrus scent and by far the longest lasting and best projecting citrus I have come across.

    +1. This is my longest citrus. Probably because the concentration levels with this house are so high.

    Actually I do. Find it in comparison to be more citrusy and woody than 2. A bit heavier also but both have very decent longevity IMO

    Roger & Gallet Open. Immortal longevity and not as feminine a the aforementioned, imo.

    Have haute concentration, not impressed by smell or life span.

    Lorenzo Villoresi's cologne & uomo are exceptionally good.

    Not extreme longevity, but Parfum d'Empire's Iskander is probably my favorite classy citrus.

    Signoricci 2 and anything in Lelabo's Negorli

    Lubin Eau Neuve. Very classy. Lasts a good while due to the herbal elements in the mix with the citrus. Has a nice hit of oakmoss as well, which probably contributes to the longevity.

    I wore this the other day. I was so impressed by its longevity. Given that lemony scents are fairly delicate, this one does have some tooth. It's pricey, but a bottle lasts a long time. It's strong.

    I love this so much I am thinking of getting a back up. I can't bear the thought of a re formulation or not being able to get this in the future.

    Acqua Viva for sure. Another one, not mentioned, is Philtre d'Amour by Guerlain.

    Own this, longevity is the only drawback though; wonderful fragrance for sure.
