    Default Orange Blossom Fragrances

    What is the best and most realistic unisex fragrance with a dominant orange blossom note? Thanks.

    Champagne de Bois by Senoma Scent Studios strikes me as fitting this description.

    My favorites are Czech & Speake Neroli. Roger Gallet Extra Vieille and Lorenzo Villoresi Acqua di Colonia are also quite nice.

    Let's keep this thread going. There is always Jo Malone Orange Blossom though I find it too feminine for me along with Serge Lutens Fleur d'Oranger and l'Artisan Fleur d'Oranger 2007. I have ordered and am eagerly awaiting samples of DSH Fleur d'Oranger Rois and Eau de Cologne/Aqua Mirabilis.

    +1 to Serge Lutens Fleur d'Oranger and Neroli Portofino

    APOM pour Homme also features orange blossom but the amber prevents it from taking center stage.

    Please let me know what you think of the samples you ordered. Thanks to everyone for all of the responses so far.

    Has anyone tried:

    Fleurs d'oranger
    Eau de Parfum
    by Mazzolari
    The Scoop
    The latest creation by Mazzolari is an homage to the aromas of the Mediterranean. This orange blossom scent is actually a bit more dramatic than most and its lasting power is utterly swoon-worthy. Fleurs d’Oranger opens with the expected happy sparkle of orange blossom, a white floral bursting with sunshine on a warm breeze. As it melds with your skin, a rich jasmine creeps in… at first, ever so slowly, just a mere afterthought, but soon enough, its seductive charms are in full bloom and pulses begin to raise. A light musk merely flits to and fro, never amping the perfume into fresh or clean territory yet tying the two ethereal florals together. Fleurs strikes a balance between light and dramatic throughout…it’s both sunrise and sunset at Italy’s Amalfi Coast in summer. Unforgettable!

    Fleurs d'oranger Notes
    jasmine, orange blossom, white musk

    The Jo Malone is pretty realistic IMO.

    As a stalwart member of the Diogenes Club (here on Basenotes) I invite all orange blossom peeps to check it out.

    This far in, and no mention of Hermes Eau d'Orange? Love the Concentre version especially. Not sure that I'd call it realistic, but it qualifies as fine, fine stuff.

    An interesting alternative: Roger Gallet Cologne. Not Extra Vieille, but the one that's simply named Cologne. In the arty green bottle. It's billed as something like "ultimate tribute to orange." Comes off more as an interesting and high-quality synthetic, with orangey qualities. Not really fresh orange. Worth sampling at least, if you're an orange fan, or a fan of R&G.

    D'Orsay (yes, I know...) Etiquette Bleue. This is supposedly the scent the Comte d'Orsay created for his "secret" English mistress, so secret it was only know by the blue label...and purportedly made from the original (and fictional) Eau de Bouquet. (All romantic advertising spin. If Lady Blessington was ever his mistress, she was very Irish and the widow of an Irish earl...and hardly secret. They lived together in her huge mansion in Kensington! And she was his mother-in-law!))

    SLs Fleur d'Oranger is also very nice. Laura Mercier Neroli is also very good.

    Others include Bal A Versailles (orange with civet), Pacifica Perfumes Nerola (floral orange) and Caron Narcisse Nior, a orange blossom with civet.

    Thanks for all of your responses. Does any one else have a favorite unisex orange blossom fragrance?

    I also love the orange blossom note in Santa Maria Novella Angels of Florence, it comes through very strongly for me, and is one of my favourites even though it is not unusual or that unique.

    Orange blossom is spun differently in PdN New York but it's right there.

    Prelude to Love By Kilian.... Orange Blossom, Iris and a little spice, smells very natural.
    Artisan by Varvatos... Orange Blossom with a musky base and a hint of woods.
