I love grapefruit scents--until they get on my skin. Then they turn sharp and weird. Dawn Spencer Hurwitz Pamplemousse is better in this regard. It's wearable, but it still turns a little sharp, and it definitely smells better before it gets on my skin. But if it works with your body chemistry, it's a great grapefruit fragrance that doesn't generally become unpleasant.

A great perfume for daily wear on its own or as a layering piece. I layered it with the Color Orange (also from DSH) and I swear the combo cured my headache. A nice pick-me-up for those blah days that won't bother any perfume-allergic types around (this is important to me, as I am a teacher and many kids are perfume-sensitive).

My first DSH experience, and undoubtedly not my last. This is so delicious, and I'm not much of a citrus girl. Simple and sparkling, the grapefruit refreshes - perfect for a spring picnic. No repurchase as it's not a fragrance I love, but it's so good and it's a pick me up scent if ever there was one. If I ever need help chasing away a bad mood, Pamplemousse will do.

I should start off by saying that I'm not a real fruity scent kind of gal (or a grapefruit fan). However, this scent was surprisingly good on me. It had a sweet/tart scent to it that really captured the way an acutal grapefruit smells. I could almost feel the juiciness of the actual fruit. This scent was light and refreshing, but with more staying power than your average citrus. I find myself being very tempted by this one. Perhaps in the spring...
