    Default Candied orange/mandarin

    I'm enjoying my bottle of Paco Rabanne Ultrared and it's freaking wonderful the very second you spray it. Candied orange is what I'm smelling. The downfall of this fragrance is the longevity. 6 hours is all I'm getting. The opening lasts about 1 hour and then it's pretty much just the base of vanilla left.

    I need a candied orange dominating fragrance asap! Suggest me as many that you know of.

    The ones I've tried: One Million which has that candied orange thing at the top aswell, need more of that!

    Thanks in advance people!

    Perhaps Mandarine by L'Artisan Parfumeur might give that vibe.

    That fragrance is beautiful, but has the longevity of an axe body spray. I'll have to keep looking.

    I don't consider the candied orange note to be dominating, but I've read posts from people who think it's prominent.

    Maybe some fragrances from the Aqua Allegoria range by Guerlain may be worth testing: technically far more unisex rather than the official labeling as feminine, while being in fact easily to be pulled off by any gender, plus, most of the citrus-dominated scents in this range have an interesting and comforting balance between acid and candied/sweeter citrus notes, plus hints of herbals and non-sweet florals also perceptible.

    If you don't mind wearing fragrances marketed to women, try Elixir des Merveilles by Hermes it smells like chocolate covered candied orange peel.
