Inspired by the majestic Citadelle Laferrière, known as a symbol of strength to the people of Haiti. Citadelle is a fragrance that celebrates the spirit of the Haitian people with a modern take on a classic vetiver perfume. Premium Haitian vetiver is layered over notes of pear, marigold, bergamot, lemon, cinnamon, nutmeg, musk and cedar. Raw Spirit works with indigenous and marginalized communities, either directly or through partnerships, to sustainably source rare and unique natural ingredients for their fragrances.

It?s in the timing.
You need to put this on an hour or two before you go out and about. It?s long lasting and best adter it mellows, but it has already had people stepping closer for a dose of the scent.

like no.9
This reminded me of a faint version of chanel no.9. I never liked that chanel, but then again when it comes to perfumes I like more sweeter scents. When I ordered this I didn't realize it was a perfume or as they are calling it a unisex fragrance and is not anything I would of ever picked if I knew it was a perfume as I don't wear perfume. I do have a lot of perfume on hand for girls who stay over and I will spray my pillows at times but for this service I wouldn't be sampling perfume. That all said this isn't for me and I won't be placing it with the dolce, viva la juicy, DKNY red, angel, spears and all the other perfumes I have on hand.

Smells like cleaning supplies
Not great. I actually received this incorrectly (Should have been Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Gold) but thought I?d give it a shot. Very woody but not in a good outdoorsy way. Smells like intense cleaning supplies or soap that needs to be rinsed off. Tried to see if my husband would want it but he didn?t like it at all.

It smells a little crazy at first but when it calms down it smells pretty good.

I did not like this scent. Overall it's an older smelling fragrance. It has one strong note that overpowers the under softer notes which is a shame. I'm not sure what the over bearing element is. That's unfortunate. Will not get again or recommend.

Sexy and chic. Classic, yet sophisticated.

I don?t love it it?s too mature for a 26 year old I believe. It?s just different and not the vibe I was going for.

This was my very first Raw Spirit scent. I was extremely excited to try this scent. I love natural scents and I love the fact that Raw Spirit supports the local communities where their ingredients are derived from so I know that somewhere along the line my Haitian people were supported by me choosing this fragrance. I also love everything that the Citadelle stands for so I had high hopes and expectations for this!!! I was so sadly disappointed that I didn?t absolutely love this scent. I am at a loss for words to describe it any other way than that it reminds me of a dentist?s office. After it dries down a little it becomes a little more pleasant but -to me- this is definitely more of a fragrance for a man! My boyfriend was not home when I received my package so when I picked him up from class later on in the evening he even questioned me if I had another man in the car so that confirms it is most definitely his new monthly fragrance and not mine! He doesn?t mind it though :)

Enjoying this scent, reminds of spring with the windows open and fresh laundry drying outside. A clean scent.

You win some, you lose some. I loved Desert Blush so much I was eager to try this one. This is not what I expected. The vetiver and wood notes are dry and the bergamot heavy. The marigolds give it an astringency and the lemon is not sweet, nor tart, but bitter. I suspect a man could pull this off and have it smell quite lovely, but on me, it was a scrubber.

Light and refreshing, reminds me of a crisp glass of water with lemon. Very outdoorsy scent and clean. I just wish I could make out the pear scents, I mostly make out the woodsy lemony scent

This is a great summer fragrance - the citrus notes mix perfectly with the bright greens and there's just a hint of floral to round it out. The only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is because on my skin it lacks staying power - I had to reapply after 4 hours.
