Eau de Portugal/Friction Lotion

I am a great fan of Colognes or even Lotion Pour Friction, whether French, German, Spanish, Italian or Turkish. I have been splashing Turkish Kolonya onto my hair for a while. So now I have purchased a few hair lotions, following these will be TOBS and DR Harris Eau de Portugal.



I have just used the Vines Vintage, it has lovely orange smell as you would expect :)...
 
The clear winner is Vintage Vines. It contains Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon) and Citrus Aurantium Amara. It has a lovely orange scent. You could produce this yourself. The Citrus Twist friction lotion probably comes in second, it mentions essential oils, but doesn't list any in the ingredients. Last is Denman Pashana, it has a milder orange scent, it lists Citrus
Aurantium Dulcis. It also contains Oakmoss which I find off putting mixed with the citrus.
Denman products are now marketed as Jack Dean.
