    Default 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

    many thanks!

    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

    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.

    Default Re: your best orange parfume

    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.

    1. Creed Green Irish Tweed

    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.

    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.

    Default Re: your best orange parfume

    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.

    Ya know, the Chanel didn't come to mind for me initially, but there definitely is an underlying nice orange note in Extreme. It's perfectly subtle & just peaks its head from time to time.

    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.

    yes mee too!! i just avoided citrus smelss, the only i had is aqua alegoria pamplelune, but now discovered orange can be very nice if nicely done! and something different from usual notes (lemon is much more present then orange , so was very much surprised by my reaction
    ....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

    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.

    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.

    It's slowly becoming a favourite of mine! It really is a master piece, but like Terre d' Hermes, I don't get any orange from it - just grapefruit!!
