    Default Good fragrance with orange notes?

    Hi all,

    I love the smell of oranges and was wondering if there are any nice orange scents you guys could recommend to me?

    Niche frags are little bit over my budget!

    Thanks in advance!

    Eau d'oranges vertes or concentree d'oranges vertes by Hermes would be good examples. Chanel pour monsieur (the plain one) also has, or used to have, orange, but I don't know if it still available in the UK.

    As you probably know already, remember that orange notes tend to be very volatile, that is, they don't last long.

    These both are excellent choices. If you are more bent for bitter orange mixed with cedar, than Terre d'Hermes is definitely worth a sniff (and a buy), IMO.

    Certainly this one. But keep the bottle handy as it'll be gone in a few (few) hours.

    for swap/sale:

    Best orange scent I tried so far is Atelier Cologne's "Orange Sanguine". It's niche, yes, but it's very reasonably priced and you don't have to spend more money on it than on the Hermès scents. If you like fresh, juicy oranges just give it a try, you'll probably love it. Btw. it's unisex.

    My husband bought a large bottle of Orange Sanguine over the summer-- he loves it!

    For a cheaper orange, there's also Pacifica Blood Orange (nowhere near as good as Orange Sanguine, though.) I don't know if you can find Pacifica in stores in the UK; I know the website doesn't ship to customers overseas yet.

    Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Mandarine Basilic EDT is superb - you can get it at debenhams for around £45

    Orange Sanguine is really good, about as close to the smell of a fresh peeled orange as I've found. Hermes Eau de Orange Vertes is nice but pretty fleeting longevity-wise, as others have noted.

    I just picked up Annick Goutal's Eau de Sud and I'm quite enjoying it--finding it to be a very mellow, masculine orange/citrus fragrance.
