A tale of three citruses

The past few days have seen glorious weather in England and I've therefore felt compelled to break out the more summery/spring like fragrances in my collection.

I wore Miller Harris Citron Citron on Saturday, Diptyque's L'eau de Neroli on Sunday and Serge Lutens Fleurs de Citronnier today. 

Citron Citron was quite unusual. It starts with a fairly fresh and citrus top, then gradually dries down to an almost chypre base, without ever quite achieving it. It certainly is interesting.

L'eau de Neroli is the most predictable of the three and a typical cologne that requires generous application. It smells nice and refreshing, perfect for a warm day, but is very simple and well executed. Does what it says on the tin.

Fleurs de Citronnier is the most complex of the three and has the best lasting power, as one would expect from a Lutens. It is also far more than just a citrus scent. There is a lovely floral heart and a gorgeous musky dry down that appeals to me every time. A fantastic fragrance that comes highly recommended, and the winner for me.
