    Default Orange blossom/Neroli for men

    I love this note but most scents i have tried tend to be pretty white flower juices. Im looking for something more masculine.
    Ive tried L Artisan Nuit de Tuberouse which has a good neroli presence but is very dry. I also liked Serge Leutens Fleur d oranger but it a very linear Orange blossom/jasmine with no woods and hard to detect musk. I would like something a bit more interesting and masculine. Any suggestions please?

    Rochas Lui is a wonderful fragrance, or if you want to splash out...XerJoff Nio
    also, maybe Terre d'Hermès is worth investigating......just a thought

    Creed Neroli Sauvage...A dry neroli note is complimented by dry woods a shimmering citrus. Good stuff.

    Mugler Cologne is another citrusy neroli, this time with clean musks.

    Prada Infusion d'Homme contains a subdued and very soapy neroli note.

    Parfums de Nicolai Cologne Sologne. It's an EDC though, so the longevity is not what people tend to go for around here... but it's one of the very best if you don't mind reapplying.

    Was the OP asking for a scent with a prominent neroli note, or just with some neroli in the formulation? A lot of the suggestions are not neroli scents by any stretch of the imagination.

    Maison Francis Kurkdjian APOM has a nice Orange Blossom note. It is very smooth and relaxing.

    I don't personally prefer to wear Orange Blossom scents, they're a mess on my skin; but I'm stubborn, so I keep trying to find one I'd like.
    The closest so far are:
    +1 Neroli Portofino
    Czech & Speake Neroli. I love the spices offsetting the Neroli in this one, and is currently the only Neroli soliflore I'd really consider wearing. Test it out!

    In orange-blossom tinged scents, I really enjoy the use of Neroli in Penhaligon's Douro. It's not there long, but it's just right for me!

    Default Re: Orange blossom/Neroli for men

    Orange blossom would have to be the prominent note. I tried APOM ( i already own lumiere noir ) and loved the opening. Then came the amber which im not a big fan of. Im more interested in the sparkly stuff with a woody/musk drydown.

    I've been wearing Creed Neroli Sauvage on a regular basis, lately. It's one of the brightest, most uplifting scents I own. People say this one is susceptible to batch variations, but I have to say mine is absolutely beautiful. It's warm, sunny, clear, fresh and pretty. I used to think it was short lived, but lately I've been getting endless longevity from it. Sometimes I forget I have this one and then when I wear it, I can't help but feel lighter than air.


    It makes me want to explore other neroli scents.

    I have tried C&S Neroli and Castile plus Neroli Sauvage but imo MFK APOM Pour Homme which I am wearing as my scent of the day is amazing. Its warm and sweet and projects the orange blossom note thats gives you a happy sunny glow of warmth. Love it......it really is a orange blossom fantasy fragrance.lol

    Default Re: Orange blossom/Neroli for men

    Tom Ford's Neroli Portofino and Acqua di Parma's Colonia Assoluta both deliver loud, linear, but non-flowery nerolis with a base of clean musk. They're good for what they are, but I've had a diminishing returns experience from both of them. Vero Profumo Rubj Parfum is the king of this clan, and is deeper and more complex than either, but is even more pricey.

    Either of the MFK Apom's are worth sampling; lighter, woodier versions of the neroli theme. Don't discount the women's, as neither are very genderful ( if I must coin a neologism ).

    For something desnser and more complex, I heartily recommend Sonoma Scent Studio's Jour Ensoleille, a warm, buttery, animalic, but not particularly sweet orange flower. Rich rather than fresh like the above. Also, quite affordable.

    Jo Malone does an Orange Flower that sidesteps the floral issue by adding a lot of orange.

    Parfum d'Empire recently released Azemour with a lot of critical acclaim, it's a neroli-orange chypre, though I can't vouch for it as I've yet to sample.

    Now is a good time for neroli-lovers. Lots of options out there.

    Ah, the quintessential dandy fragrance!

    +1 for Neroli Portofino, but also the much cheaper Pacifica Nerola EDP. This is also worth trying: neroli, orange blossom and pettigrain.

    http://www.pacificaperfume.com/spray...-spray-perfume

    Other costly orange blossoms are By Killian Sweet Redemption: orange blossom with incense or Serge Lutens Fleurs d'Oranger, a masculine orange blossom with cumin.

    best neroli / orange blossoms for men, that are masculine:

    2. Parfums De Nicolai Cologne Sologne
    3. Penhaligons Eau De Cologne

    Agree with all of the above but, Reflection Man is not really neroli prominent.

    I got more suntan lotion than neroli. Nice but not really prominent.

    The best neroli fragrances imho are Neroli Portofino and Kobe. Cologne Sologne is pretty but short-lived.

    You could also consider Neroli from The Cotswold Perfumery - by the same perfumer as the C&S Neroli and cheaper. In my view a very masculine interpretation of orange blossom.

    Caron's En Avion is a very interesting neroli scent. After three days in a row of wearing it, I am still trying to understand its structure. It is complex - one of those perfumes that one can and probably should spend a long time contemplating. But neroli is indeed at its heart, together with rose and carnation; and the neroli note of the extrait lasts for hours and hours and hours.

    It's fantastic and really deep warm satisfying orange blossom note where a lot of others like castile and C&S Neroli are restrained and do not deliver the OB in all its glory. The only thing missing from APOM when you wearing it now in the Winter months is a Summer breeze. Love it.....lol
