    Thanks, everybody - what a variety in votes and an incredibly close race this is. No less than four fragrances - APOM, Neroli Portofino, Chanel Eau de Cologne, and Mugler Cologne - are leading the poll with only 2 votes separating 1st and 4th place at the moment, and Eau d'Orange Verte following suit just behind them.
    Thanks for voting and for all your input - as always, I enjoy and very much appreciate all your feedback! And feel free to go on voting, guys - the poll stays open and there's no clear winner at all at this point!

    Neroli by Roja Dove has one of the most bright, polished, natural-smelling neroli notes I've come across.
    That said, I find it a tad boring.
    It's also hideously expensive.

    Other.. not a big neroli fan, but Artisan and Artisan Black especially take the cake for me.

    I tried the Askett & English line and was unfortunately disappointed. One of them, I don't remember which, was an herbal citrus in the vein of Eau de Sud and Eau Sauvage, which was nice.

    Yes you mean Essential, more grassy and lemony, i prefer Absolute which is also along the english olfactory tradition becoming finally ethereal and romantic. The genre is particular (just for the lovers of the old british style in perfumery).

    I like MPG Pour Le Jeune Homme, but my favourite orange blossom of all time is Caron's Narcisse Noir.

    Yes I agree. I just wish it stuck around longer.

    CASTILE!

    ...but don't buy it there...

    I'm just providing the link because other sites list different notes, but notes, shmotes. Orange blossom, neroli, petitgrain, bergamot, a dash of woods, and just enough rose to add some mystery and allure, plus some musk to make it wear like a second skin when it's done projecting into the air.

    I LOVE THE STUFF!

    mikeperez23: You must try Commodity Nectar if you are near a Sephora (currently the only source in the USA.) Much better longevity than the L'Erbolario, and a nicer blend as well. My husband is sharing my bottle.
