    Default Strong and long lasting citrus fragrances?

    Just as the title says. I love citrus scents and am looking for some to use this summer. I want the main note to be fresh citrus.

    As of right now, I already own:

    -Xerjoff Mefisto

    -Xerjoff Renaissance

    -Creed VIW

    +1 Afternoon Swim

    Also may wanna check out..

    Varvatos Artisan Pure, very long lasting and inexpensive.
    Jimmy Choo Ice, this is supposed to smell like Dior Homme Cologne, which I haven't smelled, but this does remind me of lemonade, lasts 8+ hours on me.
    Dunhill Icon, classy men's citrus/neroli, great performance, smells much more expensive than it costs.
    Bond No 9 Bleecker St, very long lasting citrus dry down
    Bond No 9 Nouveau Bowery, very long lasting lime frag, 10+ hours on my skin
    Gap The Natural, close to Nouveau Bowery, much much cheaper, lasts forever, I mean, I've had this go on for 20 hours on me, but I've read other reviewers say only 4. Much more synthetic than Nouveau Bowery.
    Clean Shower Fresh, citrus, tea and mint, awesome combo, unique, and powerful, lasts for 6-8 hours usually,, with strong projection until the end. Always gets compliments.
    Mugler Ultra Zest, hard to find now, and way overpriced as sellers gouge for it. If you can find a bottle for around $100, it's a steal, and yes some people still do sell them for that price. This is an orange creamsicle vibe, it's uber unique, and maybe the first in its class to do such a blend, even now, I can't really think of anything even remotely close to it. Very good performance. Not a true citrus, as it leads into a gourmand dry down, but if you want both citrus and gourmand, this is one of the few choices, besides maybe Play and Play Intense, which are also discontinued.
    Penhaligon's Castile, similar to Artisan Pure and Icon, this is a very strong classic citrus, neroli fragrance. Very "gentlemanly". Probably one of the stronger ones in this class.

    Honestly? Pick one, in my opinion.

    There are many ways of simulating citrus with stronger notes that take the component parts (bitter, fresh, sweet) and extend them in the base. But a 'true' citrus that lasts and projects? I don't think it exists.

    Aventus is a good example of how to extend citrus. Note de Yuzu is another.

    If you can tolerate Orto Parisi's signature nitro musk in the base, Bergamask might be your guy. Maybe not for the hottest days of Summer though, as the musk is quite present in that one.
    I support a previous suggestion of Icon by Dunhill, a woody neroli fragrance. Also great, if orange-y stuff is your thing, might be Orange Star by Tauer, but like for Bergamask, it might be better suited for Spring. And in fine, Terre d'Hermes Eau Intense Vetiver has a great grapefruit note, and great performance on my skin (although the main note is vetiver, as the main implies).

    Many other citrus frags to suggest, but performance wise many might not meet your expectations.

    I love it! While it could be less sweet, the sweetness is appropriately counterbalanced by the refreshing qualities in my opinion.
    Spray less, love more.

    Two which immediately spring to mind are:

    Mancera Lemon Line


    Monsieur Balmain


    The former is much easier to find, admittedly, than the latter...!

    Boadicea The Victorious Monarch

    Xerjoff Uden

    Monarch is thick n woody while Uden is thick and sweet. Uden is on a completely different level than Chanel Allure homme Ed Blanche. Monarch is much more complex than the average Dior cologne nonsense, more personality.

    I don’t understand.It is so vast that surpasses all understanding.Understanding is always limited.But not understanding can have no boundaries.I feel like I'm much more complete when I don't understand.Not understanding,like I say,is a gift.Not understanding,but not as a simple-minded.The good thing is to be intelligent and not understand.It's a strange blessing, like having craziness without being crazy.It is a meek disinterest,it is a stupid sweetness.

    Ha, the holy grail! I am always on a similar hunt. Early on, very early, I was trying with Blenheim Bouquet, a favorite of Tom Ford's, before he signed allegiance to his own brand; I also liked Monsieur Balmain. Then I moved on to Bigarade Concentree. Am curious about Profumum Acqua Viva (a good house, imo) and Citrus Batikanga (the chili note addition sounds interesting, though not a fan of myrrh). Also If orange fits in, I recommend Odin 02 Owari.

    I should add, some citrus oils cause the skin to become more sensitive to the sun (if that's a concern).

    The older bottles are good although L'Eau d'Issey Pour Homme skews more fresh and floral than citrus.
