    Smile Ruban d'Orange and other citrusy fragrances...

    Hi Girls!

    As a fragrance addicted, I buy a lot of fragrances for myself while my wife had never been as much interested as me. Well, I started buying some fragrances to stimulate her and now she really likes perfumes.The problem is that she rarely goes to perfume shops to try the new/old realeases and always asks me for buying some I like for her.
    I've already bought: Burberry Brit Red, euphoria, Apparition, Nina, Echo, Emporio Armani, Very Irresistible, Dior addict and Amor Amor. She loves them all, but she asked me for a fresher one, that she thinks that it's missing in her collection. I'm affraid of buying a too manly refreshing fragrance, so I thought you could help me, suggesting some nice citrusy fragrances!
    A friend of mine suggested me this one, Ruban d'Orange, but I'm affraid there's no L'Occitane store here and I could only order it blind online... Would it suit as a refreshing (although feminine) fragrance?
    Can you suggest me any other nice citrusy ones?!

    Thanks in Advance!!

    Judging by what she likes so far, you might check out -

    Estee Lauder's new one, Pure White Linen Light Breeze.

    Panthere Eau Legere by Cartier, which was a limited edition, but can still be found online.

    Bvlgari Green Tea

    O Oui by Lancome

    O de Lancome

    I wear L'Occitane a lot, I haven't tried that one, but I don't think it's her style. jmo Fragrancenet ships overseas and there are usually discount codes available. (not affiliated)

    Oooh oooh! I'll second O de Lancome! It's a classic.
    Possibly also Clarins Eau Dynamisante (red bottle).
    Both are classic citrus and very refreshing and they tend to be widely available, so you can probably get a sniff before you buy.
    And good for you for being such a kind and thoughtful husband.

    Yes, Ô de Lancôme was my thought too. Also Eau de Rochas. They are classics.
    If you were to say to the grown-ups: “I saw a beautiful house made of rosy brick, with geraniums in the windows and doves on the roof,” they would not be able to get an idea of that house at all. You have have to say to them: “I saw a house that cost $20,000.” Then they would exclaim: “Oh, what a pretty house that is!”

    I'd like to add something less classic, but worth testing IMO.
    Hermès Un Jardin sur le Nil, which has a lovely fresh grapefruit note (along with green mango) and Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier Bahiana, featuring combined notes of Brazilian orange, caïpirinha lemon and yellow mandarin.

    I'll stop wearing black when they make something darker

    Thank you very much for the suggestions, girls!!
    I'm going to visit some perfume shops soon and test them all. I'm just a bit concerned about the "classic fragrances" suggestions... My wife is young and I'm affarid she'll be insulted if I bring home a "grandma's type of perfume"
