Smells so energizing ! the pacifica tuscan orange perfume smells like someone is holding a peeled orange peel under your nose!
Smells like a clean citrus-y shampoo to me. Very long lasting and strong.
This perfume does smell absolutely glorious- like fresh, ripe, bursting-with-juice, blood oranges. And it doesn't have that fake or artificial or chemical fruit smell ala Garnier products. It smells very real and natural and you'll practically want to take a bite out of yourself after you apply it. That being said, I just can't get past my frustration at the lasting power or strength of this fragrance (I have the rollerball oil). In order to smell it, I have to put what feels like a TON of it on... and then very quickly I don't smell it at all. I have other rollerball oil perfumes that last all day, so I don't know what the issue is with this stuff! I find myself specifically not choosing to wear this because I know the smell won't last or will be barely noticeable. I only occassionally put some on when the hubby and I have some preplanned cuddle time because I know he likes the scent. Though the scent is gorgeous, I just can't get past my frustration at how light and short-lived it is. Bummer.
Luscious juicy citrus with just a hint of floral. It's perfect for a hot summer day and surprisingly is a huge compliment getter. Definitely a "mmm you smell good" fragrance rather than a "what perfume are you wearing" one. I had to take off a lippie for the poor lasting power but at these prices just grab the roll on version too, for touch ups during the day.
Last summer, I bought this fragrance online in the solid version. I remember loving the scent but unfortunately it basically melted in my purse during the hot days of summer. I had forgotten about it until I saw the roller ball version at Target and decided to buy it because it was so affordable. I'm so glad I did, and just in time for the warmer seasons! This liquid version lasts much longer on me than the solid. I've never been a fan of citrusy scents, but this is so juicy and delicious with a kick of sweetness (but no too much). My hubby loves it, too, and said it reminds him of orange candy, but not in an adolescent sort of way. I highly recommend giving it a try:)
Oh my, how I love this Tuscan Blood Orange fragrance! I have read a lot of complaints in regards to the longevity of this fragrance, however, I have found it to be potent for quite awhile and I don't even layer it with the body creme or solid fragrance. I wouldn't say it lasts all day without re-applying, but I certainly get subtle wafts of it throughout the day. It is not cloying like a lot of synthetic fragrances, nor does it create headaches or sneezing fits, which I can experience with other perfumes. I bought a small roller-ball glass tube of this at Target for about $12. I wish Target carried the large spray bottle. Up until Target recently selling Pacifica products, the only easy way I could get my hands on them was to order them online. I love the fact that the Pacifica line is not tested on animals and that they are natural products too, not laden with nasty, artificial ingredients. The fragrance smells to me like sweet orange blossoms.
This is a nice, natural fragrance. It's very one toned, with the slightest whiff of strawberries, but mainly oranges. I got this for $12 at Target, I think, in the rollerball. It's got a nice stainless steel roller rather than a plastic one, which looks nicer and feels soothing on the skin.
The lasting power of this fragrance is terrible. Lasts an hour, tops. However, it's portable, affordable, and I quite like the scent. It's fresh and simple and I will be repurchasing.
I absolutely love the Tuscan Blood Orange scent from Pacifica, but the perfume spray needs some work. The scent is perfect, of course, but the staying power is awful. I find that I barely notice the scent even when I first apply it (and I layer it with the body wash, body butter, and solid perfume), and I feel like I have to use a lot of it. It's good if you only want your skin to smell nice when someone is close to you (and I mean REALLY close), but it's not a scent that people will be able to smell if they're around you in a normal, non-intimate setting. The bottle, though, is absolutely perfect. It sprays well and easily. The nozzle doesn't clog or stick. I wish more companies could use this type of bottle as it's really just perfect. I would say this is not a horrible product if you're the type who wants a soft (but amazing) scent to your skin that won't be noticed by everyone around you (i.e. you're not going to upset anyone by smelling too strong). Even though I do like whatever scent I'm wearing to be slightly noticeable, I will likely repurchase this product just because I like the scent so much, and it does work well to scent the skin if layered. If you want a stronger, lasting scent you should look elsewhere.
I usually abhor fruity fragrances, as most smell horribly childish and generally 'off' from the actual fruit they're trying to impersonate to me. This though is absolutely true to the fruit - gorgeous, juicy blood orange. It's utterly delicious and one of the only fruit fragrances I've encountered that haven't wanted to eject from a window (along with its wearer). The only problem is, as mentioned by other reviewers, that it has next to no staying power. I have the solid perfume in the tin and it lasts maybe ten minutes, tops. You get a quick and wonderful burst of scent which then quickly dies down to nothing. Great for a quick pick-me-up but no good if you want to smell the fragrance throughout the day. If Pacifica could fix this problem and make it a bit longer lasting, they'd have a winner on their hands. As yet, though, I wouldn't repurchase.
I got this in the rollerball from Down to Earth Honolulu for under $11. Tried on almost every one of the samples and this was the one that had a combination of longevity and my preference. I love the top notes that smell like sweet oranges. It lasts about 2 hours on dry skin, maybe more if layered. I dislike the bottom notes and sillage because it starts to smell a bit floral then. The rollerball, body wash and butter were in a pre-boxed set at Nordstrom Rack for $20 pre-xmas but didn't want to lug it home on a plane. I like that the rollerball is a stainless steel applicator and not a cheap plastic one; just feels nicer and cool on skin. I had this upside down in my purse unwittingly and the contents had spilled a bit so do be careful to store it upright in a bag.
