Citadelle is a strikingly fresh fragrance, considered a modern adaptation of a classic vetiver scent. With Haitian vetiver, marigold, pear, bergamot, lemon, cinnamon, nutmeg, amberwood, musk and cedarwood, this clean perfume is absolutely invigorating on both men and women. Inspired by the Citadelle Laferrière, the awe-inspiring mountaintop fortress in northern Haiti, Citadelle symbolizes strength and celebrates the spirit of the Haitian people.
Found by curosity, scent approved by wife (Winter Oak), love the subtleness. What store/s in Atlanta, GA carry this product, or is it order only?
I love Citadelle edp! Vetiver beautifully done.
It's a great everyday scent that you can wear without it being overpowering. It's also hard to find woodsy scents that still smell clean and fresh instead of peppery or musky and this is neither. As a guy I could see why this would be unisex. It doesn’t have any floral or fruity notes but it mellows out at the end of the day to a warm vanilla smell that works for anyone looking for a mellow undernote.
Fresh, earthy, clean. Almost borders on old lady smell but not quite, making it a very classy scent in a rich person type of way. Almost like the “fresh” version of wildfire. Definitely not a teeny bopper scent.
This is so good I put it on at night to comfort me in my sleep. It's like the best soap from your grandmother's drawer, but the kind of grandmother who got arrested a lot and had four husbands.
They just got this intricate blend just right...it's my new favorite indie fragrance
Love this scent! It's an earthy, clean, not too sweet of a smell. Perfect for those of us that like Nest fragrances, or Vince Camuto smells. It's definitely not a "old lady smell" but far from a Teeny Bopper smell as well. Classy. Love. It's my favorite!
Over the years I have favored certain perfumes. When I came across Citadell it has become the first and only one I seem to reach for each day. It's fragrance makes me think I am strolling the Italian Riviera.
Every time I wear CITADELLE, even strangers remark about the fragrance I am wearing. I am always quick to tell them exactly the make and product identification.
I’m not a fan of traditional perfumes due to my sensitivity to artificial scents, so when I learned of Raw Spirit fragrances through the Gurl Gone Green blog, I knew I wanted to give them a try. I started with some samples, and decided that I loved ALL of the Fresh collection, so I bought this rollerball set.
The scents are complex and a bit exotic. And they are incredibly long-lasting - these three last between 8-12 hours with just a few swipes. And it’s funny that the scents I thought I’d like the most and least are now reversed - Bijou Vert is the most masculine, but it’s also my absolute favorite. Summer Rain is closest to a traditional fragrance. It’s a bit sweet, and I use it when I want to be uplifted throughout the day. Citadelle is just a wonderful, feel-good scent.
You can’t go wrong with purchasing this set. I’m in love!
These are perfect. These rollerballs would last a good long while, and they're a very nice quality. The packaging is elegant. No on to the more critical part of this review: the scents.
I'm a fresh scent person. It was the main reason I purchased this instead of the 8 piece sample kit, but I kinda wish I had bought the 8 piece. I love some of the notes that are in these fragrances. Bergamot! I live for the smell of bergamot. My favorite is Summer Rain. I honestly had Citadelle pegged as my most likely favorite but once I smelled it it's my least favorite of the trio. I'm gonna try each on and see if maybe they smell different on my skin. Definitely go for the 8 piece sample kit.
