    Default Orange blossom/citrusy/floral frag(s)?

    What about something kind of like... a mix of TDC's Bergamote and MFK's APOM PH?

    Like a frag with florals and a mix of a kind of softness/vanillic(?) from APOM, but with the citrusy bite from Bergamote?

    Also, being citrusy a main component, good longevity of citrus can be a plus .

    Notes that draw my attention are bergamot/cedar/musk/amber/tobacco.
    Not so much leather :P.

    Edit: Oh, and contemporary (read: not 'dated'/'old fashioned') please! I can respect classics, but I'm currently more interested in contemporary smelling ones .

    You could try Floris Special No127. Lots of neroli in that.

    Hmm well to accommodate the citrus/orange blossom/floral thread title I'd suggest Pen's Orange Blossom, but it certainly doesn't smell like a combo of Bergamote 22 and APOM.

    It has the softness and vanillic accord you're after, but instead of the acidic bite you're after it has a powdery accord.

    I own APOM and a decant of Bergamote 22, and enjoy them both, but the bottle of Orange Blossom I bought for the missus speaks to me more than the others do. It has doesn't possess the same longevity but has a beautiful clean scent that I'm finding more and more desirable in a fragrance....despite my affinity towards MKK.

    I actually have a sample of Pen's Orange Blossom and just went to it again because of your post; I do like the smell, and perhaps I'll look more into getting a bottle in the future. But I do like the citrus bite that Bergamote has.

    Do you feel Pen's OB is more of a calm/relaxing/balmy kind of scent?

    What about a citrusy one with more of a.. vitalizing citrus; but not in a screeching way.

    .
    I know exactly what you mean - Pen's OB is more a sweet, clean citrus than the crisp citrus that Bergamote 22 offers.

    I don't find it balmy so much as white floral, but I definitely get the relaxing vibe from it. I always feel happier when the gf wears it.....or when I steal a few spritzes from her. It's a European-style unisex after all!

    I can only hope the other members here can offer more insight than I can; I'll be watching this thread with great interest.

    I've been looking for an excuse to blind buy PdN New York for a while, and it seems Awakening950 has provided it

    Haha, I look forward to more suggestions from people! Perhaps we'll both become aware of multiple scents that we'll end up owning! Cheers.

    That's a nice one. Lots of rose. Luten's Fleurs d'Oranger is another, with tuberose. I find both a tad femme, however; the latter more so.

    Apart from these, even Eau d'Orange Verte has, apart from citrus notes, a reasonable amount of orange blossom tones, yet less or no other florals- but still worth testing.

    Fluer du Male by JPG is orange blossom + some citrus and is definitely floral.

    A love or hate frag for many but I'd give it a try. It's certainly not old fashioned. (Doesn't have much citrus either but is big on orange blossom).

    Definitely try PdN New York: in its current incarnation, it is a competently put together orange-amber.
    You may also want to try Parfums MDCI's Promesse de l'Aube, a beautiful chypre.

    Orange Blossom by Jo Malone is a very acidic citrusy orange blossom done quite well.

    Oranger d'Alhambra Armani Prive. It has the orange blossom and bergamote. It's a little quiet but very beautiful. I was doused in it today as a matter of fact.
