    Default Looking for single-note colognes, esp. orange (like Demeter but w/ better projection and longevity)

    I know about Demeter fragrances, but have heard they have terrible longevity and projection. Are there any other manufacturers/vendors that do a similar thing to Demeter, but with higher quality? I'm especially looking for an orange smell, but also seeking single-note chocolate, vanilla, etc.

    Vanille Absolue by La Maison de la Vanille perhaps.

    Pick up a bottle of Orange Sanguine from Atelier Cologne and call it a day.

    Citruses usually are very fleeting. But there is stuff that at least lasts a bit more than Demeter. In addition to the suggestion above, there's Concentree d'orange vertes by Hermes. Vanilla instead lasts a long time, so there should be no problem there. One suggestion was given above already.

    Bond No. 9 Little Italy is very very orange-y. Something you may want to look at. Not a good one IMO however.

    Eau d'Orange Verte is pretty linear and mostly bitter orange.

    You may find what you crave in Diptyque's Eau de Tarocco/L'Eau de L'Eau.

    Comme des Garçons do pretty decent takes on grapefruit and lime. You might want to try Guerlain Mandarin-Basilic.

    I love it when people make a suggestion and then follow it up by everyone hates it or its disgusting, etc. I love Little Italy and everyone that I know that has given it a whiff loves the stuff. Just my two cents.
