I often turn to a Grapefruit perfumes on the hottest days of the year because its such a fresh and uplifting citrus fragrance. This article lists the best Grapefruit perfumes (including Pomelo which smells very similar to Grapefruit; Grapefruit is actually a hybrid of Pomelo and Orange) for every budget and links to where you can get them.

Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Pamplelune


Pamplelune (French for Grapefruit) is the star of the show in this classic Guerlain fragrance. Their Aqua Allegoria range all focus on natural, clean, unisex fragrances which all have a slightly aquatic feel to them. They are also refillable bottles and so large refills can be purchased which saves on money and the environment.

Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Pamplelune is available at Sephora, Macy’s, and I recommend Notino for the UK & Europe.

Aerin Mediterranean Honeysuckle


The Aerin perfumes from Estée Lauder are an exclusive range of beautifully fresh, Mediterranean inspired scents. Aerin Mediterranean Honeysuckle despite its name is actually dominated by a fresh Grapefruit note which accompany a light Honeysuckle and Lily of the Valley floral heart. I think Aerin Mediterranean Honeysuckle must be one of their best selling perfumes because they’ve released two limited edition versions of it. For more on the Aerin fragrances, check out my article on every perfume in the range.

Jo Malone London Grapefruit Cologne


The Jo Malone London brand offer an aromatic Grapefruit perfume in their Grapefruit Cologne. Rosemary, Mint, Vetiver and an Oakmoss create a green and herbal feeling to the fragrance once the Grapefruit top note settles. They also offer a range of body products and home fragrances in the same aromatic Grapefruit scent.

Jo Loves Pomelo


Jo Malone sold her Jo Malone London brand to Estée Lauder over ten years ago during a health scare. Since then she has created a new brand; Jo Loves. One of their core fragrances in Jo Loves Pomelo; inspired by the scent of a tropical island and a fresh Grapefruit she had for breakfast on the day she got her ‘all clear’ news from the doctor.

The Jo Loves fragrances are more affordable than the Jo Malone London scents and are available at Harvey Nichols, Net A Porter, Space NK and Cult Beauty.

Bvlgari Omnia Pink Sapphire


The Bvlgari Omnia perfumes have the most gorgeous and unique bottles, with their fuchsia Pink Sapphire being my personal favourite.

Bvlgari Omnia Pink Sapphire is a refreshing Grapefruit Eau de Toilette which has tropical undertones of Frangipani and Tiare Flower. I love these tropical floral notes and so I tend to turn to Pink Sapphire for a vacation perfume. The bottles are quite durable so they travel well too.

Atelier Cologne Pomelo Paradis


Atelier Cologne Pomelo Paradis has both a strong Grapefruit scent accompanied by a fresh Orange note which comes from a Mandarin Orange top note and an Orange Blossom heart.

Orange Blossom is a great perfume note for lasting and it gives Pomelo Paradis a depth and strength which makes it probably the strongest Grapefruit perfume available.

Atelier Cologne have withdrawn from the US but can still be found at Walmart, and at Notino in Europe.

Lacoste Joy Of Pink


The series of pink perfumes from Lacoste are fresh, fruity fragrance ideal for wearing after an energetic tennis match. Lacoste Joy Of Pink is my personal favourite in the range, its all about a zesty Grapefruit fragrance note with a slightly sweet Peony undertone. Although Lacoste Joy Of Pink is discontinued it can still be found online at Walmart and Perfume Click.
