Summary: I tried this on in a department store but when I found out that it was 95 euros for 50mls I decided to buy it online for only 55 euros. It smells better after a few hours but the first hour I get a wiff of body odour mixed with orange blossom. Don´t get me wrong I do like the perfume but not in the first hour until it settles. It has good staying power and does smell better as the day goes on.
Summary: I got my Fleurs d'Oranger by accident, but it turned out to be a happy one. I've never been one for Big White Florals, but this one is more sunny yellow than white, and has a definite Mediterranean flavour with the rich orange blossom and jasmine notes and a hint of Middle East with warm spices. I love to wear this on dark and gloomy weather, because it takes me instantly to sunshine and warm breeze.
Summary: I had read many mixed reviews on this scent but I love neroli so I had to try it for myself. Scent is so personal so it was only fair. The first spritz and yes, it was very strong but the alcohol disappeared and it was so much better. It is so warm and rich that it is one of my winter scents. Its just too much for warmer months. There is quite a bit of sillage and it lasts for hours on me. I have hours of warm rich neroli with a touch gardenia. I love it.
Summary: Fleurs d´Oranger is a fragance i come back now and then. I don´t wear it very often, but i like to have it at hand, when i need to cover my need of orange-tree blossom. This flowers normally would remind me to spring, but in Fleurs d´Oranger there is a richness that make them suitable for cold dry weather too, just like today.
Summary: A fragrance that I associate with extreme weather conditions and for some reason, either Andy Tauer or Hermes but not SL:) It is sultry enough for heat waves and lively enough for snowy winters. Unfortunately, it doesn’t have a well-balanced performance on my skin. It starts as a thick, full-bodied powerhouse, visits some heady but clean white flowers and turns into your usual soapy orange flower very very quickly. Still, I imagine it to be stunning on the right person.
Summary: The impact of this perfume is strong. Strong in the sense of actually sort of old-lady, like moth balls even, similar to the opening of Tubereuse Criminelle. It has that sort of twangy, vintagey funk that I have come to appreciate from SL. I enjoy this. However, the initial strength of the fragrance is like getting slapped in the face with some kid leather gloves of a regal lady (OK, perhaps a transvestite).
Summary: This is definitely very different from all the other neroli fragrances that exist in the market today ( e.g Annick Goutal,Jo Malone even L'Artisan's neroli versions), as this is not green and fresh but a deep, sensual and spicy neroli. It is a floral oriental which is rather strong and perfume-y and can be worn all-year around ( I would avoid it in very hot weather, tho). The neroli note is there but tuberose is also very prominent.
Summary: There're just so many mainstream designer fragrances available over counters these days with in-your-face scents and loud ugly bottles it's refreshing to actually find one which doesn't try to distract from the actual scent itself. I love the simple rectangular bottle and the fact that it comes with a screw-on cap and separate spray nozzle for you to screw on yourself only after opening - I'd read something abt how alcohol can evaporate through spray openings and change...
