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

Concentree d'Orange Verte
Essenza di Zegna
My husband likes Orange Sanguine by Atelier.
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

2. Tom Ford Noir de Noir

It's been a long time since I've smelled it but I remember Clinique's Happy for Men as being a nice simple orange frag

I'll second both Bigarade Concentree and Orange & Lemons Say...I'll also add:
Discover my Guest Reviewer Of The Day here
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

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.
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)
Hermes D'Orange Verte
Try Azemour les Orangers by Parfum d'Empire.
1. Dior Homme Original

4. Noir de Noir
5. L Instant Guerlain pour Homme Extreme
6. New Haarlem

9. Rose 31
10. Spiritueuse Double Vanille
Frederic Malle Bigarade Concentree.
Not sure if this was mentioned but GFT by trumpers has great citrus and yes orange in it and I think its a more grown up adg and I like i more personally
My favorite right now is Azemour Les Orangers
Dare I say Neroli Portofino or Creed's Neroli Savage?
Agree with the following for a "pure" orange fragrance:
Concentree d'Orange Verte
Atelier Orange Sanguine
My top 5: Sea Mist; Minnow; Crab, tiger, and almonds; Semprini; Rancid Polecat N° 2
Blu Mediterraneo Capri Orange by Acqua di Parma is a juicy, sweet orange, and it has become my favourite orange scent. I like Azemour Les Orangers a lot, so if you are looking for a salty-bitter orange you should try it, but for a simple and refreshing hit of fruit I think Capri Orange is a better choice.
i won't lie, citrus conversations bore me to pieces. After doing a quick once-over, I'd say Le Labo Bergamote 22 is my most desired of everything mentioned so far. Parfum d’Empire Azemour Les Orangers is mentionable. Creed Jardin d'Amalfi can go suck an egg.
+ 20 for Bigarade Concentree, love the stuff!!
Also a big thumbs up for Bond no 9 Little Italy!!
....Azemour Les Orangers is another one to try then...
Blu Mediterraneo Capri Orange by Acqua di Parma i think this could be nice too!!
thank you very very much for lovely suggestions! i will try them all
i was wearing Maharanih intense yesterday and one guy told me i smell of india incense sticks? is it that how is called? and i smell just orange there hehehe
And another for Frederic Malle Bigarade Concentree.
+ another for Cartier Declaration - although the oranges aren't that fresh
We're all in the same game; just different levels. Dealing with the same hell; just different devils.
I only have one orange based fragrance: Orange Sanguine. It´s simple but I love it.
In the other hand, I love the orange in Terre d´Hermés, Idole and Mona di Orio´s Vanille.
- A lot of people thinks that they live when the only thing they do is simply exist.
Since nobody mentions it, here I come: Acqua di Parma Colonia Essenza - I find it has a very nice (if candy-like) orange note that matches perfectly the patchouli drydown. Definitely worth a sample, imho.

As others have said, for 'pure' orange I'll echo Orange Sanguine - Atelier. But I've never really wanted to smell like pure oranges.
I think my favorite use of orange, though, is in Aftelier's Oud Louban.

Got a good one for ya! Check out Altamir by Ted Lapidus. The orange blossom is very good. The price is very resonable (Around $25). But don't let that fool ya!
No such thing as a good orange Frag....rub orange peel on you....get better results
