    Thanks for the update SaNielsen. Hmmmm, I tend to shy away from soapy and clean, and head straight for dusky. But I've been starting to wear some of those clean ones to the gym. I'm not sure that's a great idea since I may learn to associate those with pain and never want to wear them normally

    Thanks for sharing, and for passing the samples along to Galatea8.

    Hopefully MHeusler and googl.plex1 will receive their samples soon, if they have not already done so.
    Yes, it really is annoying! Can't wait to get my samples from the very kind SaNielsen!

    Love it! I am the same with "soapy" usually. The Bianca was just so well-scrubbed and smiley. I don't think I found the right wording for the other sample... If they were sister's I'd say Flora was the haughty one.

    Got mine!

    Not in love with the Flora. Haughty is a good adjective is, that animalistic note murders it for me Drydown is more enjoyable I think, but this isn't something I would wear or want to smell on a woman, that's just me though.

    On the other hand.....

    The Bianca is quite pleasant. Love this smells like it could easily belong in the Prada men's line. Bright, fresh, a hint of soapiness. Love the orange blossom too. I would wear this.

    Thank you for your impressions, Mheusler.

    So, that's two of you who like the Nerolia Bianca but not the older, discontinued Flora Nerolia.

    Love Herba Fresca (own it) - so fresh and real and crisp. I can't wear it when it's cold, though - it seems wrong.

    I got my samples from SaNielsen yesterday. I will wear the Bianca today and see! Thanks!

    I'm just giving this a bump and hoping for some more reviews.

    I wonder whether googl.plex didn't receive his samples?

    And what did you think, Galatea8?

    Thanks for bumping this. I went to review the new one and saw that my post was last and so it wouldn't have bumped it up.

    Anyway, I have only worn the new one once. My husband liked it enough to comment that I smelled good. I liked it ok. Not great. I only wore it once, so I need to wear it again to be fair, but it smelled... hollow. Like the first scent of the neroli, and then a blank space, and then faint orange blossom for a minute, and then just the bitterness of orange peel. I thought it needed something in the middle there.

    I have not worn the older neroli yet as several people mentioned iris, and I have disliked iris in the past. Perhaps I will be brave today.

    I heard it's got bitter orange w/ orange blossom.. Can't wait 2 try it!
    I tried Atelier Orange Sanguine because of this thread and actually returned it to Sephora. The first hour was good, but then the bitter old orange peel smell overwhelmed me. It smelled like eating an orange in my car and then leaving the peel there overnight.

    That's interesting, Galatea8-- I never smelled iris in Flora Nerolia; I don't like iris either, it seems, as I sold my Iris Pallida after I could not get over finding it a depressing scent.

    So give it a try.

    Ah that annoying update feature!

    My husband loves Orange Sanguine and it smells fine on him, but I am personally not a fan of citrus type orange scents; I prefer lemon/grapefruit/lime notes.

    Ooh, this sounds like a must sniff for me! Wonder if it's available in the UK?

    I get gardenia. A lot of gardenia. I only got the bitter neroli for 10 seconds at the beginning. But it's very pretty, and no, I don't get any iris, either. I like it much better than I like the new one!

    I have the two samples of AA Nerolia Bianca and Flora Nerolia... I am happy to send the new AA Nerolia Bianca on to someone. I am going to wear the Flora Nerolia today again, and then it might come available, too... anyone interested?
