    Coco Madamoiselle by Chanel has orange, grapefruit AND bergamot. Very citrusy.

    Clinique Happy

    I think that was a very fresh, bubbly and orange fragrance. L' Occitane has Feu D' Orang which is also pretty crisp and orange..with blood orange to give it some balance.

    Acqua Di Parma also has a scent out that smells exactly like orange lemonade ( arancia something is in the name)
    But once you get locked into a serious perfume collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

    For orange, I'd recommend Malle's Bigarade Concentree along with Clinique Happy.

    As someone who wore Happy for years, I would call it bright, happy, bubbly, and citrus-y, but not necessarily orange. Definitely recommended, though.

    Also consider:
    Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Mandarine Basilic
    Azzaro Orange Tonic
    .
    Sniff and let sniff.

    I just received a sample of this one and it seems to fit the bill perfectly: ByRedo 'Pulp' - it really does smell like fruit pulp (it's strong and green and fresh, not sugary, on me anyway).
    "It's now very common to hear people say "I'm rather offended by that." As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more than a whine. 'I find that offensive.' It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that.' Well so fucking what." - Stephen Fry

    I'd say try both Hermes' Eau d'Orange Verte and Verte Concentree. They are different, the EOV has a more zippy orange-y top note.
    Be warned though -- natural citrus is a notoriously short-lived element. The only way to get longevity is to go synthetic, thereby losing the marvelous fresh natural vitality. So, enjoy the moment, and re-apply as necessary.
    Think about expanding your repertoire. Consider NEROLI as an element (orange blossom). there are threads here on that. It is a marvellous element.

    Not a bright bubbly Orange, but rather smooth sophisticated Orange crystals in a matte' finish : Parfumerie Generale Bois de Copaiba.

    You should sample it to see if you like it.

    Although half the reviews of this are neutral, the orangeness of Lian's Blu Mediterraneo Capri Orange / Arancia (by Acqua di Parma) sounds promising.

    And if we're going with non-bubbly orange, my newest favorite is Antica Farmacista's Vanilla, Bourbon & Mandarin: just like an orange creamsicle, as everyone says.

    L'Aromarine has an Orange Perfume Extract that would be on the less expensive end of the scale.

    My ultimate bright, happy, bubbly citrus fragrance: Floris Pink Grapefruit.
    .
    Sniff and let sniff.

    You're welcome

    Another one I forgot to mention is : Mona di Orio - Lux.

    To my nose it's pure dried Orange (the fruit, not the peel) in the topnotes with a healthy dose of animalics in Musc form. As it dries down it settles into this alluring tangerine powdery musc.

    Others smell Citrus in it though, instead of Orange... but either way it's a win-win scenario for you as you've said you wouldn't mind it

    Thank you, added! I've found a webshop in NL that sells fine frags, I'll see if I can get some samples. Otherwise I'll probably get some from the perfumed court as they are the only company in the USA, that I know of, that is willing to ship perfume through air mail to NL.
