    Have any new, worthy, Grapefruit Fragrances been released, between 2010 and Now?

    We often hear about the usual suspect, grapefruit fragrances, from back in the day. My question is, have there been any worthy grapefruit fragrances
    released, in the last ten years or so?

    well, Amber Cologne has grapefruit in it but its not what i would call a grapefruit centric fragrance, definitely worth though imo. very good.

    Without question, I think Atelier Cologne makes the most realistic grapefruit scent with their Pomelo Paradis.

    Although they appeared before 2010, Nicolai's Balle de Match (now renamed L’Eau de Sport) is an excellent grapefruit scent, as is Creed's well known Zeste Mandarine Pamplemousse.

    No.....I'm pretty sure. I still think Pamplelune is the greatest grapefruit fragrance, but it was released in 1999......so.....

    Though more of a unisex scent, still easily wearable for men and released within the requested time interval: Rhubarbe Pamplemousse, a limited edition from the Pierre Hermes series by l'Occitane

    I'll second these:

    Pomelo Paradis by Atelier - I agree, it's very realistic and beautiful
    Pamplemousse Rhubarbe by L'Occitane - it's just lovely and summery, and also very natural-smelling and beautiful; on the slightly sweeter side
    Concentre de Pamplemousse Rose by Hermes (Eau de Pamplemousse Rose is just as good, and it's more about the grapefruit than the Concentre which at least on my skin is more a vetiver fragrance with some grapefruit while Eau is all about the lovely grapefruit...but it doesn't last nearly as long as Concentre).

    I also liked Terre D’Hermès Eau Intense Vetiver. a lot, it has a superb opening. I think I probably like it even more than original.

    I also love grapefruit and will be following this thread.

    I find Heeley's Yuzu to have a beautiful grapefruit note, even if there's also 'more' going on.

    There are a few more that I can't think of atm.

    I pick up - or rather nose in on the grapefruit note in Dior’s Eau Sauvage Cologne EDT, which was released in 2015. Quite a linear scent to me as well.
    Not that I’ve tried it though but I’d like to think something called Pomelo Paradis should be a safe bet!

    Thank you for these particular insights and recommendations. Incidentally had very good experiences-both performance and scent wise- with a few Hermes renditions of grapefruit notes, including but not limited to Concentree de Pamplemousse Rose and TDH Eau Intense Vetiver.

    Being personally more than willing and eager to recommend these aforementioned ones and/or more options by Hermes as quality, versatile, decent performance, timeless as puristic elegant and not even overly pricey male/unisex grapefruit choices.

    When the stores were closing i picked up Marc Ecko because it was way cheap and had a nice grapefruit on opening. It's still available at a bargain, but fails as directory shows its from 2009.

    My go-to for grapefruit would be Salvatore Ferragamo PH but that's 1999.

    That leaves two maybes....

    Acqua Colonia/4711 Pink Pepper and Grapefruit New -yes!! 2013 Worthy - hmmm..... This smells just like pepper and grapefruit. But as most 4711 it does not last very long. It's like a pleasant splash more than a real cologne. If you like dousing yourself post-shower, or pre-yard work, or just to sit on the couch, it's kind of fun. But not a serious cologne.

    Eau De Cartier - Zeste De Soleil New - 2013! Worthy - could be!!! I like this one a lot as a warm/hot weather fragrance that has a lot of natural smelling fruit scents going on. The directory doesn't have notes but some people say they get grapefruit, although it is definitely not the primary scent. This was my SOTD yesterday. It does seem like some grapefruit, but there's orange, yuzu, lemon, and more and it breaks more orange with the rest evenly mixed to me. I can see this one being a little polarizing but worth a try, quality stuff.

    WOW! There are a lot more than I expected. Tons of good information, coming in. I'll need to research, a few of these and make a decision or two.

    Thanks for all the responses so far!

    Does Roja Dove's Elysium cologne count, date-wise? It certainly has a significant grapefruit note, to my nose.

    My specialty is finding the best notes at bargain basement prices. For grapefruit, it's Adam Levine. Launched around 2013 I believe.
