    Post Your Favorite Neroli Fragrances?

    I've recently become obsessed with neroli fragrances after sampling Guerlain Neroli Outrenoir and the new Byredo release, Sundazed. I didn't really care for the note that much before, but suddenly it clicked for me, and I've been madly using up my samples of Colonia Essenza and Neroli Portofino Forte.


    Since we're at the start of summer, what are your favorite, most unique or underrated neroli fragrances? I assume that we're all aware of Essenza, Mugler Cologne, Neroli Portofino, and John Varvatos Artisan Pure.

    Dang ! Right on I not long clicked with the neroli note!
    Bright Neroli Ferrari is a firm favorite, neroli goodness's with some citrus and light flora.
    It reminds me most of 4711 which I also adore buy for its meager duration.
    Dunhill Icon is also a favorite - heavier more formal citrus neroli.
    Tabac Original also love the melange of notes in the opening.
    Agree Neroli Portofino it's dope too.

    My favourite currently has to be Bright Neroli

    Seconding cologne sologne, for the cost. I have a 1 liter bottle and it's so cheap I also spray it on gym stuff etc.

    For something expensive, Amouage Silver: not just neroli, though.

    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    My favorite neroli fragrance is Santa Maria Novella Acqua di Colonia. It doesn't last long but is positively transcendent while it does.

    I tried this one recently.

    It's good value and lasts longer and projects more powerfully than many scents in this category, though I think the post-opening white floral bouquet (which is pretty similar to that of the very nice Lalique White) is much better than the citrus-driven opening, which is a bit blunt for my tastes.

    I do enjoy Neroli Portofino, but find it criminally overpriced (it'd be a decent option if you could get 100 ml for less than $100).

    Dunhill Icon, which has been mentioned in this thread already, is an intelligently blended designer scent that finds a way to make this genre work while using blatantly synthetic components, though I actually think it works much better as an elegant cool-weather scent than a warm-weather one.

    Just Free by Luciano Soprani (2004) for aquatic neroili
    and Penhaligon's Castile (1996) for traditional neroli that lasts

    Cologne Indelebile (probably the longest lasting as it pulls some tricks with other white florals and a squeaky clean musk to make it feel like the neroli hangs around for the life of the scent. Does this trick better than Castile, where the neroli disappears after 10-15 minutes and then it’s purely about the soapy musky base)

    Acqua Neroli (Clean) (the closest thing to a Neroli Portofino clone. Can be found for decent prices in the US)

    Neroli Portofino

    Acqua Colonia (Santa Maria Novella) (the scent that kicked off my neroli eau de cologne love)

    Cologne Sologne (going in a greener more herbal direction rather than white floral)

    Grand Neroli (stunning neroli and petitgrain opening on a musk and vanilla base)

    L’Eau de Neroli (sweeter neroli and orange blossom scent thanks to the honeyed bees wax)
    1. No, never blind buy (I do, but do as I say, not as I do. I'm taking no responsibility for your fragrance gambling).
    2. Get them both. You're a Basenoter and you know you're going to end up purchasing them both eventually.
    3. Yes, it has been reformulated.
    4. Looking for a signature scent? You've come to the wrong place.
