My most favorite fragrance of all time. I am a spicy fragrance girl and this fragrance is so versatile and classy and it's one of a kind. I will wear this fragrance for a very long time.
Very very pleasant scent which smells like a light-hearted and floral sister to the sultrier and louder Fleurs d’Oranger. However, unlike Fleurs d'Oranger which turns soapy on my skin, JM's sheer Orange Blossom preserves its vitality throughout. When it dries on my skin, it reveals a light, watery and lush lilac. Although this note usually warms up too much on my skin, it never becomes heavy or cloying here. Soon jasmin emerges, with a slightly gassy tone adding just a bit of nature and realism to OB. It is slightly indolic - at a good dose for the faint hearted like myself. In fact it's one of the very few fragrances where I can tolerate indoles. All these add enough interest to OB, without making it too challenging. Jo Malone website suggests layering it with Black Vetyver Café but I think it's beautiful on its own, too.
The only jo malone that lasts an time on my skin. It is an absolute staple for me. It has an indoles which give it an animalic edge and unlike some OB is not too sweet. I took this into hospital and had all the nurses asking about it. Truly lovely.
I actually went through one and a half bottles of this - loved it for what it was, a simple, fairly long lasting, pretty scent. But then something happened. I started breaking out in an itchy red rash after spraying and I had to stop using it. Would be curious to know what it is in there that I react to. I own and wear a LOT of perfume and this was the first time I had a reaction. Since then i've reacted to Carnal Flower too. Yikes! Maybe a sign to be more judicious in the application!
I would have given this all 5 lippies if it lasted as long as something that costs this much should. LOVE the Orange Blossom/Tangerine/Honeysuckle smell though. Some of the*Orange* smells Ive tried before were too * clemetine* for me. IF this smells of clemetine, it's faint, and the sweetness this has cancels it out. If you want to smell this all day, be prepared to spray about every 2hrs...after 2 hrs you will only catch the lightest scent (maybe). Would def not be smelled by anyone walking by you.....
My favourite! Orange flower with a litle of lilac. Not that sweet but not too bitter too, just perfect imo. Its very soft, not very powerful, it doesn't stay on long on my skin but I love it so much that I dont mind spritzing it again and again.
MMMMMMMMM. I cannot stop smelling this. The lady at the Lancome counter at Norstrom added a very large handful of Jo Malone perfume samples to my bag, and this was one of them (or two, I should say). BY FAR the best perfume I have ever smelled. Before I saw that it was orange blossom, I thought it was like smelling a giant bush of gardenias! At my aunts house in Florida she has a few gardenia bushes, and OH MY GOD do those smell good. And they are so strong, they make her whole house smell good! Whenever I put on this perfume, my wrists suddenly become attached to my face. ITS. SO. GOOD. Once I save up enough, I am DEFINITELY buying a full size one.
I love this perfume! I was looking for a new perfume since my fav L'occitane Honey Gentle Water was discontinued. It really does smell like orange trees in bloom and honeysuckle. I didn't give it a 5 because of the price- $65 for 1 oz. It doesn't last long either, but that's good since I don't get a headache from it.
Smells absolutely divine. It seems to capture the scent of neroli perfectly for me. It is very exhilarating on the initial spray but it just doesnt have any staying power. Uncomplicated and beautiful scent. My AVON collection of scents last longer that this! Cant afford to keep buying bottles of this with all the multiple application through the day. What a shame.
My teenage daughter and I shared a bottle of this...it was gone in less than 2 months. It is hard to overspray. Light, sweet fragrance. It doesn't last long, but very uplifting on initial spray. I bought Cassis Fig at same time and still have 1/2 bottle of that. Scent combining isn't as great because second scent tends to cancel out the first almost completely.
