Reviews of Royall Mandarin

This doesn't smell like orange juice. Orange Sanguine smells like OJ. Royall Mandarin does smell like candied oranges though. Sugary, sweet and synthetic after about a minute. The first minute though, it actually smells quite natural. The dry down is a bit musky.. similar to the dry downs from Lyme and Muske. The dry down also smells very much like Drakkar Noir's, uncannily similar. Like others have said, longevity and projection are both very poor. Save your money and buy something from Hermes.

Interesting and pleasant opening, but goes down hill from there

The first whiff is lovely and extremely pleasant. It evokes a citrus grove of oranges and limes in blossom.

The stuff dissipates and fades very quickly. An hour later, maybe two ... it's gone.

I disagree with those who say it is one dimensional. Not at all. It is unusual blend that is rather complex: predominantly mandarin oranges and lime (yes, the lime is quite pronounced!) there are hints of other citrusy things like blood orange, bergamot, and grapefruit; but as someone else noted it has a touch of spiciness as well. It is not too sweet.

It is ephemeral - it does not last. It fades into a soapy scent and then disappears completely. I will not be buying this in the future.

Pros: Very citrus and orangy
Cons: Short lived"

Get a bottle of Tropicana OJ and douse yourself in the juice and you'll have the same effect as with Royall Mandarin with about the same longevity.
The only advantage of RM is that you don't get sticky.
Forget about this scent, not worth the extravagant price.

A pleasant orange/mandarine scent, but lacks the sophistication of citrus scents such as Creed Virgin Island. This can be forgiven, since it's 1/10 the price. However, I can't recommend it because it doesn't last. I liked it enough that I made the attempt to move it to a spray bottle. This helped, but I would still have to apply more than I am comfortable doing to gain any sillage or longetivity.

Smells somewhat like Old Spice Fresh Scent, but not as good (and that's not saying much). Synthetic and confused scent.

The opening, heart note, and drydown of Royall Mandarin present a possibly (but not really) pleasant orange / mandarin note. It lasts for twenty minutes if you’re … oops, I guess I don’t really want to say “if you’re lucky”: It’s more likely that you’re lucky that it doesn’t last longer… I’m not fond of this particular mandarin note – it has no personality, so there’s nothing else to judge by except longevity, which in this case is… very short.
