    Default Sweet Orange Unisex?

    I'm looking for a very, very sweet orange scent. If anyone is familiar with Nivea's Touch of Happiness body wash, I'm looking for something similar to that. Just something light that I can spray on before heading down to the beach in the mornings. A light mandarin orange/cranberry would be nice to. If you know of anything, let me know!

    You've got us thinking, cjude. The only thing that comes to mind at the moment is Jo Malone Orange Blossom, but I think you're looking for more of a candied orange scent … like Demeter Orange Cream Pop perhaps?

    Have you tried Elixir des Merveilles? Not really light, but I think it would smell very nice at the beach.

    Eau de Cartier Essence d'Orange sounds like it might fit the bill. I tried this on at Neiman Marcus over the summer, as well as Atelier Orange Sanguine. Both were a bit light for me, but it sounds like you are looking for "light".

    Be aware, though, that bergamot is photosensitizing.

    I was just going to suggest this one. Not specifically orange, but the orange note is sweet and quite present.

    I have the same opinion of 30 Roses. Eau de Cartier Essence d'Orange may be the Orange that you`re looking found. If it wasn`t for the part of a sweet orange fragrance to go to bed, i`d recommend you Profumum Dulcis in Fundo, which is a blend of vanilla and sweet orange basically.

    I think that Eau Claire des Merveilles fits more the propposal than Elixir des Merveilles. The Orange on Elixir is Sweet, but kind of bitter too, and the salty chypre-like base doesn`t seem so good to bed. Eau Claire des Merveilles seems more smooth, with a soft vanilla-meringue like base and a light orange opening. It seems more tender than Elixir, and more perfect for wearing after bath and going to bed.
