Reviews of Oranges and Lemons say the bells of St Clement's

A soapy citrus fragrance that gives you what the name says. But for the price, you should get more IMO. Nothing special about this one. Pretty safe....too safe. When I read the notes I expected better. Decent summer fragrance. 7/10

Oranges and Lemons say the Bells of St. Clemens. Well, I say...."Tricks are for Kids". Seriously though, this opens with sweet neroli, orange and lemon notes. I love neroli, but this smells more of sugared fruit flavored kids cereal than any other citrus based opening I've smelled yet. It is nice, but it also disappears rapidly, and when I say rapidly, I mean within 5 minutes it has lost more than half of it's presence. It literally went from having sillage to being a close skin scent in 5 minutes. That's poor performance in my book, especially for the money this fragrance costs. I was going to rate it as a neutral because as I said, I love neroli, but this performed so poorly that I can't see how tit could be anything but a negative rating, even though it's a pleasant enough scent...for about 20 minutes...and then it's gone. At least it was on me. Pretty sad really.

A promising fruity opening, but overall this is not something I would want to wear routinely. The structure supporting the fruit in the opening does not work for me.

This is a thoughtful composition of mainly citruses, neroli, and the creative combination of ylang ylang and vetiver at the base. The opening is a fresh lemon blast made a little sharp by the petitgrain.

I start noticing the vetiver about 5 minutes later, with the neroli and ylang ylang making it almost feel like a spice. This vetiver is a clean, lifeless one almost borrowed from Etro's Vetiver.

Therefore, the resulting dry down to me is literally Etro's Vetiver plus neroli. This is not a bad thing. In fact, it is quite innovative and unique. The problem for me is that this dry down is not a welcoming one. It feels desolate and lonely like an old memory of being lost as a child.

Try it. You may love it. If not, you just might appreciate it.

Really not that special, it smells a bit of old man. Also, very fleeting. Not worth the price tag. Have yet to find a Heeley perfume that really knocks my socks off

Genre: Citrus

Oranges and lemons indeed, very tart, juicy and naturalistic, along with a spicy green neroli and sharp petitgrain, in a brisk and appetizing opening. Most of that edible citrus flesh drops out in ten minutes’ time, leaving the neroli/petitgrain accord and a savory herbal bouquet to head up a very light skin scent with a clean, musky base note. In other words, a very well-executed, though relatively conventional variant on the eau de Cologne formula. The herbal notes are well blended, but now and then unravel to reveal an olfactory glimpse of basil, thyme, or sage. Neither the tea nor the ylang-ylang in the pyramid register as individual notes, and the vetiver doesn’t seem to contribute all that much to this scent’s character. The whole composition whisks by in an hour or so, but the congenial top notes make me want to go right back and reapply it.

While it’s not terribly original and very short-lived, even for a citrus scent, Oranges and Lemons smells of quality. If you’re looking for a well-crafted, effervescent eau de Cologne analog and don’t mind its very limited endurance and projection, Heeley’s Oranges and Lemons might be a viable alternative to classics like Guerlain’s Eau de Fleurs de Cédrat, Acqua di Parma Colonia, or Chanel’s Eau de Cologne.
