Not What I Expected, But Good Nonetheless

This is a moderately strong vibe that does not offer pinpoint stimulation so it would not be best used on the clit if this is the type of vibration you are after, but it makes a wonderful internal vibe. It is thick and the ridges feel wonderful inside and it provides that full feeling I look for in an insertable toy. I do recommend this toy for internal use and the tin that comes with is so pretty and great for storage as well. It is definitely a keeper and worth a try.

Use

This vibe can be used by beginners and advanced users alike. The smooth feel to this and very mild texture make this non-threatening and beginner friendly, but it is girthier and makes a good internal vibe for those of us(like me) who like a larger insertable. I got this with high hopes that it would be a stellar clit vibe, like my evolved sypmhony g-harmony, but it turned out to not be nearly as good for clit stimulation. I find the best use for this is as an internal vibrator, though it does not have a g spot curve so it will not provide much in the way of g spot stimulation. What this will provide is a full feeling and moderate vibrations that feel good internally. Not earth shattering, but good. I find this best used as a solo toy, though it could be used in partner play. It can be used on the clit, as an all over body teaser, as a dildo and it can be used in the shower/tub since it is waterproof.

On the plus side, this can also be used in a room mate living situation since it is not very loud and certainly would not be heard when used in the shower, or even from behind a closed door for that matter.

Material / Texture

The Citron Florentine by Evolved Novelties is made from TPR. TPR gets a 7 on Eden Fantasys safety rating scale. This material is durable and holds up very well, but it is somewhat porous and can not be sterilized. So if you would like to use this anally or share it, it is recommended that you use a cover over this for those types of uses. I personally do not use mine anally and don't share it, so I find it perfectly fine to use this for myself only internally and as a clit vibe without covering it, provided that I wash it well before and after use.

This TPR is smooth to the touch with a little bit of drag that feels awesome when inserted and feels nice against the clit. There are wider ridges that go vertically down the shaft that do add a little bit more girth and added stimulation to the vagina when used internally. There was a mild chemical smell to the material that I noticed when I had taken it out of the tin it came in, but the smell did go away with a single wash. The ridges on this are not too much and should be fine for beginners, and since this toy is not small and does have some added texture on the shaft it would be stimulating and have something to offer for more advanced users as well.

The Citron, despite being made of TPR is not as flexible as other TPR evolved toys that I own and does not have a whole lot of give. The shaft is firmer and it feels like it is coated in TPR so it has a "squishier" feel to it but it does not bend a whole lot at all. The base is made of plastic and the push button control is made from plastic as well.
    • Light odor
    • Rigid
    • Somewhat porous

Design / Shape / Size

Now I really do like the shape and size and design of this vibe a lot, which is one of the reasons I ordered it. The ridges looked very promising, and it looked easy to hold onto and girthy enough for my liking. The shape is reminiscent of a flare/light that road workers/traffic directors use. It has a slender handle area and the insertable portion is much thicker. I do find this to be easy to hold on to because of the way that the handle portion is designed.

My favorite thing I think about this vibe is the size. It is perfect for an insertable. Not to big, not too small, it is just right. Also the rounded tip of this aids in insertion and makes it comfortable to put in since the rounded tip gradually gets larger as it becomes the thick shaft. The total insertable length of this is 6 1/2", which in my opinion is perfect. It is long enough to hit my cervix, but since the tip is a squishier,rounded TPR is does not hurt my cervix at all, even with rather vigorous thrusting. This is very thick though and potential users should be aware that it goes up to 1 7/8" in diameter. It is a thick vibe that will make your vagina feel full. I personally love a thick vibe that provides a full feeling so I have no complaints, petite vaginas may want to steer clear of this though. Make sure you can handle this much girth before you buy this.

The vibe in total is 8" in length which I find to be adequate and makes it easy to hold on to while thrusting and easy to manipulate when this is inserted. I also find this vibe to be "pretty". I got mine in pink, which is feminine and cute, the shaft is almost fuschia and the base of this where the battery compartment is, is actually a paler pink.
    • Ergonomic
    • Whimsical / artistic

Functions / Performance / Controls

Now lets discuss performance. I like this vibe a whole lot as an internal vibe and I use this internally coupled with external stimulation to get off and it does get the job done. My all time favorite clit vibe that has rumbly vibrations and a good amount of power with pinpoint vibes that just flat out rocks is my G-Harmony. Because the toy is made from the same TPR by the same company I figured the motor would be comparable and the vibe quality would be similar as well. I wanted this to be a kick-ass clit vibe. I do not find it to be however. The vibrations are rumbly and powerful but they are not pinpoint vibrations. Instead of most of the vibration being felt at the tip of this vibe, the vibrations are strong but dispersed throughout the first three inches or so of this. I find the vibrations to be too dispersed to make a solid clit vibe. It is a decent clit teaser but an excellent internal vibe that does rock when used this way. The way the vibrations feel internally is awesome and I cum every time while using this with simultaneous clit stimulation.

The controls are simple. There is only one button to control the three speeds of this vibe. The button is at the very bottom of the vibe. Press it once for low, again for med, once more for high and press it a fourth time to shut the vibe off. As mentioned before the vibration is strong, especially on the highest setting, but is dispersed through out the top half of the vibe and not at all localized.

This toy is very easy to use, borderline idiot proof and is waterproof. I love waterproof toys. The battery compartment is threaded very well and a thick silicone o-ring lies inside of the battery compartment which definitely does keep the water out. I would feel comfortable submerging this. It is also a reasonably quiet toy. It can barely be heard from under a blanket and it definitely would not be heard through a closed door.
    • Discreet sound
    • Multiple settings
    • Powerful

Care and Maintenance

This toy is really easy to care for. Before use I typically wipe this down with an Eden Fantasys Toy and Body Wipe. It is a bit of a lint magnet so even though I store mine in the tin that it came in there is usually a dog hair or something stuck to it. I wash mine in the sink with soap and hot water after use. I find that it does retain bit of a smell from the soap I use to clean it with. It takes two AA batteries, and I use rechargeable batteries so I just take them out after use and recharge them so they are ready to go for next time, so I am unsure as to whether or not this toy is a battery guzzler.

I store mine in the tin that it came in with other toys in it as well. Just be sure that your toys of similar materials are not touching when you are storing them since this can cause the material to degrade somewhat or toys to stick together. I found this out the hard way when I had a TPR vibe and a TPR sleeve touching one another in storage for about a month and I had to peel them apart because they nearly fused together. Both toys are still useable, however I don't want any of my toys ruined so I make sure to wrap my toys in tissue paper so that they do not touch when stored.

Since this is made from TPR both water based and silicone lubes can be used with this. I do need to use lube with this every time since it is a thicker toy and to be able to insert it fully it does have to be somewhat lubed up.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Packaging

I love Evolved Novelties packaging. This toy comes in a tin that is an attractive purple and says the name of the toy on it and has a clear plastic portion on the lid that displays the toy. The toy comes nestled in foam, but I removed the foam so that I could store other toys in this roomy tin as well. This tin would is nice and it would make a nice present for that someone special or for a friend. The tin even latches shut with a locking type lever on either side of the tin.
    • Good for storage
    • Would make a nice gift

Experience

While I did not get what I was expecting with this toy, I did get a very nice insertable vibe that I enjoy very much and will use on a fairly regular basis. I love the feel of the vibrations internally, and I sometimes use this as a vaginal plug and just get off while this is inserted through clitoral stimulation. Other times I will warm up externally with this, insert it and thrust it and/or rotate it, both feel very good while stimulating my clit. I prefer to use this toy solo but it has been used as a teaser in partner play as well. My man loves when I put this behind his balls and perform oral, since he prefers more dispersed vibrations rather than pinpoint ones, so he definitely enjoys the use of this vibe for partner play.
Follow-up commentary
This is alright. I like some of my other evolved toys more, but I do enjoy this every so often. I find that I like this for penetration with some clit stimulation more than anything else. It is worth it if it is on sale, though I do think many of the other evolved TPR toys are nicer. It does offer nice, steady vibes that are quite nice internally though.
