Reviews of Histoire d'Orangers

To be honest this while on the one hand is really beautiful, smells to my nose exactly like those little English soaps you find in luxury hotels, nothing more, nothing less. And totally not worth the price. The sample I received was nice for a day (it does last and last), but it's not something I'd buy a full bottle of.

Histoire d'Orangers is arguably a rather simplistic fragrance: a breeze of fresh neroli soon lifted by a fluffy, inky white musk, while ambroxan extends the fragrance further into the dry down. However, there are enough nuances to keep it pretty and natural-smelling.

The neroli in the opening is fresh and transparent, with just enough green bitterness to evoke the natural feeling, and nothing sharp or soapy at all. A delicate honey casts golden shimmers to the neroli, just enough to add a touch of sensuality and suavity, and nothing sticky or cotton candy-like, either. The musk is clean and slightly inky, luckily without any connotation of sharp laundry powder to me. Its fluffy texture complements the feathery neroli perfectly, and lends an expansive sensation. The scent as a whole, is like an ethereal white cloud of neroli and musk, shined upon by the golden sunlight of honey. These first 3 hours are my favourite part of Histoire d'Orangers.

Afterwards, ambroxan becomes more and more apparent, and eventually dominates the perfume and pushes the neroli to the edges. I usually perceive ambroxan as slightly salty, but mostly musky sweet with a vegetal/mineral nuance. Here, the vegetal facet does link with the neroli nicely at times. But once the ambroxan completely takes over, it's just ambroxan and nothing else, which eventually bores me in the end.

Histoire d'Orangers rather whispers its story close to the skin, and lasts at least 7 hours thanks to the extensive dry down of ambroxan.

Like many L'Artisan offerings, Histoire d'Orangers is very easy to appreciate and have a certain natural feeling in the opening. As an orange blossom fragrance, it's clean and fresh, but not as bitter herbal green as traditional cologne; it's fluffy and honeyed, but not as sweet as cotton candy or too indolic. It embodies the innocent nature of orange blossom perfectly. However, its overall simplicity and its extensive use of ambroxan may not jibe with everyone. I would mostly recommend it to those who happen to seek for a soft, non soapy neroli fragrance.
