Thread: your best orange parfume
i am considering to buy Maharanih Intense, casue i find it so beautiful orange...
but did not smell many of parfumes that have orange as predominant theme!
closest to that i have is Aqua allegoria Pamplelune...which is grapefruit, and am not looking for that type of scent now...something more sophisticated and not synthetic
TdH, AdG or 1mill is what most'd say.
Personaly I find some Orange in Duel from Annick Goutal, though I'm not really sure that it is there.
I don't have many orange frags so it'd either be Nautica Sunset Voyage or Rocawear 9IX
+1 Bigarade Concentree
+1 Terre d'Hermes
Concentree d'Orange Verte
Essenza di Zegna
Xerjoff Kobe (even if the dry down is a little wanting).
In addition to other suggestions, Jaguar for men (original, green bottle) has orange notes in the top amongst a bunch of green notes and spices, and a nice leathery/tobacco drydown. Moderate projection, decent longevity, inexpensive, nice scent and very masculine.
For me, Sweet Redemption is like oranges and cream and is fairly linear and nice

If this may qualify as an orange perfume: L'Erbolario Neroli.
I dislike Bigarade Concentree intensely, as it smells too much like body odor to me.
Terre d'Hermes is a flinty orange which I wear occasionally, but don't love.
On the other hand, Concentree d'Orange Verte is just about the most perfect scent there is, orange or otherwise.
Current Top Five:
1. Creed Green Irish Tweed
2. Tom Ford Neroli Portofino
3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
4. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
5. Creed Original Vetiver
Orange Sanguine +1
Real stuff, with killer longevity and sillage
Hermes- Concentrée verte
Chanel - Allure sport eau extreme
Bergamote 22 -- citrus fragrance that does not have the bathroom cleaner / lysol vibe.
Guerlain's Cologne du Parfumeur has a splendid orange-blossom opening indeed. Last week, I sprayed a little on ten minutes before boarding a tram; a woman (standing room only) leaned backwards to smell it until she fell over and I had to catch her. No, I didn't make that up! A rare reaction, of the type few things I've worn have received. Unfortunately, I don't think I like it enough myself to buy it, even if the positive association of that incident made it briefly tempting. But the orange-blossom note of the first twenty minutes is very good.
Fleurs Et Feuilles D'Oranger by Gallimard
Terre D'Hermes technically....having said that, Orange Sanguine is the best orange smell on a perfume (unfortunately it's very weak)
My sales thread
+1 on Hermes Concentree d'Orange Verte and Orange Sanguine. Typical of citrus scents, don't expect them to hang around...
Hey guys thank you very much!!,I see terre de hermes is like the most mentioned here but i dont like it:-(, i may buy it as deodorant though!
Other suggestions are very nice, but many of them hard to find , this will be something that will occupy me next months ,the summer is over but somehow i want to have oranges on my neck hehe:-)
Thank u very much, hope this helps someone else too
Orange sanguine sounds like something i would like :-) , and bigarade c.
Orange Sanguine is a great realistic orange in the opening and it dries down to a soft pleasant smell, with minimal projection and longetivity.. which I find not a bad thing for this sort of scent, which I prefer to wear in the mornings.
Tauer's Orange Star is another one, and it is quite bizarre. Definitely orange, but it has a plastic/rubber smell that seems to keep morphing. An interesting scent, but not something I would purchase.
Cheap and simple for me when it comes to orange. Clinique Happy and Chanel Allure Homme Sport.
Some day's you're the statue and some days you're the pigeon.
Creed's Jardins d'Amalafi...kinda of a tart orange to my nose...realy an amazing fragrance...
+5 Concentré d'Orange Verte. The Eau is nice too but incredibly short-lived.
Bigarade Concentree ( I assume we're talking Frederick Malle here)
