    I'm actually going to be at Luckyscent on Saturday to meet Andy and see the new scent. I am excited to see the new packaging. The juice inside deserves to be in these new bottles. Beautiful.

    In case you haven't seen it yet, here's a recent interview of Andy Tauer where they discuss Orange Star and the new packaging and bottles:

    Any in-depth reviews of this? I'm seriously looking for something that will replace John Varvatos Artisan - I know, I know... not popular around here, but on me, it works well and it rather inoffensive and light enough to wear during the hotter Southeast USA months without causing nasal aggravation - or The Different Company's Divine Bergamot... which again is an inoffensive, great smell to me; albeit a bit perfume-y sometimes.

    And orange blossom? I'm so there, but just wonder what the response has been so far.

    I've just tried this today and my first impression is Une Rose Chypree redux (albeit lighter). The sooner someone denies Andy access to the clementine essential oil bottle, the better...

    I agree.

    I'm so late to the party but I just tried Orange Star and I love it. Without telling my wife what it was, she said "that's amaaazing," which doesn't happen too often. I have to disagree with the notion that Andy should "lay off" the clementine. It's his house signature, no different than Guerlainaide. I found it to actually only be very present in the first few minutes, then dissipate into an incredibly well blended scent with it only playing background. I love that he's established a gorgeous base to build fragrances from. I continue to be a big fan.

    It just leapfrogged a bunch on my wish list.

    I honestly can't remember what my sample smelled like. It was one of those instances where when I sampled it I thought, I must sample this again with a larger sample next time.

    Purely as a personal experience I was disappointed with Orange Star. I just did not find it to fall into the ahhhhh ummmm category, such as L'air du Desert Marocain did. C'est le vie.

    Really want to try this. Andy Tauer has always been known to be really personable in his journey. Really brings a lot of personality to his fragrances.

    It's a very nice quality orange scent.

    I wrote a mini-review of the first try when I received my sample a few months ago :

    This one kept me intrigued all day long. It smells A LOT like a soap I used sometimes but can't remember when or where. Well, it's actually richer and deeper than this soap, though, but I can't get the soap's link out of my head.
    The beginning has a little floral element, and strong orange oils mixed with. Then the floral notes fade away and the "soap" note becomes more proeminent. Base notes add a vanilla element and let the fragrance ends on a soft amber(?) with a little hint of orange oil in the background.
    It lasts a very long time since I just dabbed a very few on chest and one wrist and I had whiffs of it from noon until midnigt.
    Very good blend, but I think I would prefer to smell it on a woman than on me, but I'm still intrigued by it and I'll give it several tries again.

    Makes me think I could wear it again btw.

    I thought this was just awful. A strong soapy orange, as alluded to above.

    I liked it, but not enough to overwhelm my hate for orange. So over all I passed on this as well.

    I'm surprised people get orange in this. The problem might be with me though, considering its name is orange star.
    Just a harsh soap to me. Labdanum heavy amber & orange blossom. If I want amber and orange blossom, I'd go with APOM.

    Naw, the orange is definitely there. I love orange blossom, but really don't like orange at all. So maybe it's my dislike that amplified the orange quality for me, but to my nose orange was certainly and most unfortunately present.
