My favourite EDT has been discontinued at Yves Rocher - Citrus Flower. It was lovely, light and perfect to wear for work as not too strong.

So I need to find something else. Ideally grapefruit notes but nothing too strong - I didn't like the Jo Malone citrus ones. Any ideas? I can spend up to £50.

I recently received a sample of
this and it's absolutely beautiful. Not my usual kind of scent at all but I have been reaching for it on a daily basis now that the sun has made an appearance.

Hm, i am not good at distinguishing citrus perfumes but I wear Clinique Happy Heart and Elizabeth Ardwn green tea for work. Both get compliments

O de Lancôme is very fresh and citrussy

Clinique happy was always my favourite with that smell, but that was years ago, not sure if they still sell it?

Chanel Chance Eau Fraiche is my favourite citrussy scent.

D&G Light Blue. Definitely citrusy.

I have the L'Occitaine vervain perfume - lovely and lemony

O de Lancome. Gorgeous.

Seconding D&G light blue

Jo Malone Grapefruit.
It also works really well if you use it with Jo Malone Wild Bluebell

Sorry - just read your message properly and you didn't like JM blush

Huge 3rd to light blue - my absolute favourite summer fragrance. Lovely citrus top note with a sexy musky base note.

Do any of these smell remotely like a lemon refreshers bar? That would be my dream perfume

D&G Light Blue or DKNY Woman, both citrusy but think the DKNY one is more graprefruity.

L'occitane verveine, M&S do cheap knock off versions of that as well. I have got Cèdre for work, it's fresh but not really lemony.

Thanks for these!

Will head into town and have a good sniff around so to speak! Years of rhinitis have really whacked my sense of smell - citrus is the only aroma I can identify accurately sad

Guerlain Pamplelune. Is extraordinarily grapefruity.

blueskyinmarch Tue 05-Apr-16 20:04:02

Clarins Eau de Jardins is light and summery. I love it.

Sparkletastic Tue 05-Apr-16 20:04:03

Just had to order myself a bottle of O de Lancôme because of this thread. The ultimate citrus.

Eliza22 Tue 05-Apr-16 20:04:48

Eau Dynamisante....recently rediscovered it. Lovely. Two people asked what it was I was wearing, at the weekend.

KanyesVest Tue 05-Apr-16 20:14:49

I love the Occitaine bergamot and jasmine but it doesn't last long enough and I'm not organised enough to bring the bottle in my bag to reapply. Any of the above mentioned longer lasting?

sohelpmegoad Tue 05-Apr-16 20:16:55

Loccitane lemon verbena is lovely, my favorite light summer perfume

CointreauVersial Tue 05-Apr-16 22:04:12

Shay & Blue Blood Oranges has an amazing orange zing, but with a warm heart. M&S sell it.

Also, as several people have suggested, Occitane have some lovely citrus fragrances - worth trying a few.
