    Pomelo Paradis by Atelier Cologne. It's grapefruit & mandarin orange over amber and a bit of musk with a dash of woods. I can't say enough good things about it. This was easily my best purchase of 2015.

    Not mentioned so far Laura Biagiotti's Roma Uomo. Could also work on a woman, smooth inexpensive ambery scent where the grapefruit is not in any way tart.

    I think Mefisto has a very pleasant and pronounced grapefruit note.

    One fantastic grapefruit fragrance that is not often mentioned is Solaris by Agonist. To me the opening is the unmistakable smell of pink grapefruit.

    I have one I think is even better for a Grapefruit note than Dior Homme Cologne, which has been suggested earlier:


    Dior's Eau Sauvage Cologne

    The main reason I bought this is because I also like the smell of Grapefruit. The above was released last year and it doesn't seem to get mentioned on here a lot though it did have a thread around the time it was released.

    Eau Sauvage Cologne (not to be confused with the original Eau Sauvage) has a really prominent grapefruit note.

    If you're looking for two of the most realistic grapefruit scents, they would be Pomelo Paradis and Balle de Match.

    For rather powdery and not always cheap (especially if relying almost exclusively on Ebay) grapefruit fragrances, Laura Biagiotti Roma Uomo, as well as Paco and Paco Energy, the latter two both by Paco Rabanne, could perhaps be worth (re-) discovering, but only if they are still available below the price category that could buy almost any grapefruit-dominated designer exclusive and/or niche grapefruit scent

    I purchased a cheepie at TJ Maxx that has some good grapefruit. The Natural, by The Gap clothing store.
    Your nostrils, which will dilate immesurably in unspeakable contentment, in motionless ecstasy, will ask nothing better for space, for they will be full of fragrance, as if perfumes and incense; for they will be glutted with complete happiness, like angels who dwell in the peace and magnificence of pleasent heaven.

    Obviously, "Pomelo Paradis" fits the best here. Also, would mention "Le Pamplemousse Miller Harris". I smelt a very good grapefruit fragrance while I was at khiel's (I didnt remember the name)

    Two great recommendations here and although both of these are masculine releases, I think these are perfectly unisex.

    +1 Pomelo Paradis
    +1 Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Pamplelune

    Pamplemousse Rose is meh IMO (not a huge rose fan)

    Also try Fresh Hesperides Grapefruit, which is a rather apple-y grapefruit.
    Or if you want a sweet one, Lavanila Vanilla Grapefruit.
    My only regrets in life are the people I haven't stood up for,
    and the perfumes I've thrown away.

    Hi kazino21 - I would highly recommend trying this:



    Czech & Speak Citrus Paradisi - Grapefruit, Oak Moss, Patchouli and Ambergris

    Quite a polarizing scent on these boards but I have personally never found it to be anything other than refreshing and fruity! It's a great uplifting fragrance which lasts amazingly well for a citrus based scent and Czech & Speake sell samples so you can try before you buy.

    Atelier Pomelo Paradis -- My husband and I both love this. So many of us have recommended it-- it's a must-try.

    L'Occitane Pamplemousee Rhubarbe -- we both also wear this. But if I could only have one, it would be the Atelier.

    Bought it soon after you mentioned this for the first time. Thanks a lot. Am very happy with it.

    Pomelo Paradis

    I would have recommended Balle de Match until I smelled Paradis, which is now hands down my favorite grapefruit scent.

    I REALLY need to get my nose of Pomelo Paradis....sounds amazing!

    Jo Malone Grapefruit was a really nice/simple and straight forward grapefruit smell

    Also a great cheapie to not over look IMHO....Adam Levine for Men. Opens with a tropical fruity blast that is a little on the unisex/feminine side...but dries down into a very nice tart/sour grapefruit dominant accord. Lasts pretty good on me too. And for around $10-15 for a 100ml, there's nothing to lose

    Ah! I saw this the other day and did know what exactly I was looking at! Thanks dan86, I will try it now. While I don't know a lot of the fragrances mentioned I can say that each time I apply, Eau Tres Fraiche, it is the Grapefruit which catches my attention the most.

    This!

    And I believe it was named "Grapefruit" when it first came out (I have a bottle of that coming my way in the mail as we speak), only to be renamed shortly after.

    Another nice one is Nicolai's L'EAU MIXTE. Zingy, uplifting -- and comes in a 30ml, which is nice on the affordability side as well.
