    Default Looking for A good Blood Orange fragrance

    So I'm in love with the opening of L'Eau de Tarocco, Blood orange is one of my favorite notes, and that a long with other citrus notes are executed perfectly in the openning of Tarocco: Juicy, a little citrusy, not overly sweet either, but most importantly, none of that synthetic, cleaning product vibe. However as with most citrus fragrance I'm concerned it won't last long enough.

    The only long lasting citrus I've owned are by LunaBleu, and while they're blood orange fragrances are strong and long lasting, they're still somewhat synthetic and way too sweet to be an every day scent for an adult male.

    1 Million's blood orange opening smells more like cotton candy, and it has a horrible dry down.

    So what would you recommend as a long lasting blood orange fragrance? Or anything with a similar description (Juicy, a little citrusy and lightly sweet). I know of the issue of citrus notes being short lived, but hey if LunaBleu can do it with home made ingredients, I'm sure some niche house can do it better.

    Consider Orange Sanguine from Atelier for a blood orange note.

    Feu d'Orange Intense by L'Occitane is a very beautiful blood orange scent with light woody notes. It smells so natural and very uplifting. Unfortunately, this was a limited edition so I have three bottles for back up.

    I was going to say L'Anarchiste as well.....FWIW, I don't find that and 1 Million similar at all, so I think it's worth a try.

    The only other Blood Orange I've tried was one from Liz Zorn and it made me pretty nauseous.
    Tom Ford Splits!!!!
    Tobacco Vanille, Tuscan Leather, Noir de Noir, Oud Wood
    Plum Japonais,
    Lavender Palm, Tobacco Oud, Café Rose, etc...

    Guerlain's Aqua Allegoria Mandarine Basilic. It opens with a blast of surprisingly realistic clementine and blood orange and dries down to a soft floral/herbal tea sort of accord. Lovely stuff.

    Try Artisan Black by John Varvatos. It has a unique citrus + leather + a little bit of floral scent.

    Also, try Polo Explorer (citrus + woods + amber).
