I also use Carthusia's Io and Acqua di Parma. Carthusia's Mediterraneo is another fabulous citrus scent. Â For something different in the cooler weather, I wear Yohji Yamomoto. Â In our house we call it the food perfume--licorice, fig, maybe even a little tobacco seem to figure in the scent. Â NM used to carry it.
That is the one I thought smelled like old lemon tea... Meditterano. Â Sorry Philosphe Â
. For a 'relatively' easy to find cologne that is different, try Lancome's Trophee Lancome (if it is still made). Â Very nice floral, herbal cologne.
I'm not too fond of Mediterraneo either. It's way too sweet. People who wear that in the summer must be carrying a swarm of wasps in their neighborhood
Anyway, I made a new discovery. Penthaligon's Castile
A very nice warm en subtle odour
