    Sweet, fresh orange...

    The word "tarocco" refers to a type of orange (blood orange), and it is said that this perfume is based on a specific dessert called "Carpaccio d'Orange" which is a desert across the Mediterranean North Africa region. The particular inspiration for this one came from the perfumer's journey in Morocco, where he ate this desert of orange slices soaked in rosewater and dusted in cinnamon & saffron.

    What you get here is a "sweet" orange perfume that is dusted with spices but still smells Fresh". There is the sweet Italian blood orange, as well as Bulgarian rose, Laotian turmeric, and Sri Lankan cinnamon bark, Texas cedar, and Somalian frankincense. The is also a synthetic jasmine note (hedione) which really lifts the fragrance nicely.

    This smells sweet and fresh and fantastic, very refreshing actually. You have to like orange though... I would say this is first and foremost a sweet, juicy orange mixed with saffron and rose, surrounded by a host of soft woods and some other spices (cinnamon, ginger). It is very Mediterranean and exotic. For a fragrance that is based on a fruit dessert it smells complex and refreshing. This is good stuff! Try it out in nice warm or hot weather and it will really shine, although it can be worn year round. I would say if you want a citrus which is more "interesting" and which has a little "depth" (not like the countless designer "citrus" offerings for summer)! This is a notch above all that (and people won't smell like you either). Very good choice if you like orange with a little spice and sweetness.

    Genre: Citrus

    For those unfamiliar with it, Tarocco is a cultivar of blood orange, seedless and sweet, yet with plenty of that odd, wine-like quality that distinguishes blood oranges in general. L’Eau de Tarocco offers about fifteen minutes of brilliant impersonation, and the counterpoint of citrus, cinnamon, and saffron is stimulating, clever, and original for as long as it lasts.

    Once the citrus recedes the spices are left with a soapy rose and cedar notes for company, and that arrangement is at once less pleasing and distinctive than what came before. Good thing it comes in an enormous bottle, because you’d have to reapply L’Eau de Tarocco almost continuously to enjoy the really good parts. Too bad! Had Diptyque found a way to make the orange/saffron accord last longer, or followed it up with something of equal interest, this would be a stupendous scent.

    Clean, floral, fresh, rich and soft aromatic citrus. Splendid natural scent. Overhelming crisp edible freshness - don't wear it if you are thirsty!

    8/10

    (Aromatic Spicy, F). Lovely top notes and I was going to say that next to Olène I like this one the best. But again there's that strong, spicey base that makes it hard to breathe. What's in it? "orange, grapefruit, saffron, cinnamon, rose, ginger, cedar, incense, musk"

    I got it from one very nice girl as a sample, when i first tried it i was not being able to recognise quality scents, citruses do make me feel think of cheap stuff but here my first impression was wow so strong but not sharp, smelled like pressed lemon in the camomile tea, evaporating from hot tea, natural mild but high C:-) , all that mixed with airy rose, and incense, smells refined natural and perfect for summer! I think it is a bit on the feminine side but its very beautiful! Its perfectly balanced, nothing spicy just as alfarom said cologne with a twist!!

    This is what I call "an Eau De Cologne with a twist". The usual citrus floral pattern of many fragrances of this type is brilliantly enriched by a fascinating accord of saffron and incense that's incredibly similar to the one found on the latest Comme Des Garcons EDP from 2011 but, where the CDG pushes on the accelerator by introducing its typical wierd/synthetic hallmark, L'Eau De Tarocco smells incredibly natural and, while surely more understated, it is still able to remark its presence with a considerable amount of personality.

    A citrus ologram during the opening joined by woods, incense and saffron while a petit rose note serves as a subtle yet remarkable refinement. Clean, summery and very original. Bettern worn on fabric to play it in slow motion. Highly recommended. Big thumbs up!
