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.

I was surprised by how much I liked this fragrance. I'm not a big fan of oranges (eating them or having them as the main note in fragrances). Usually I like orange in fragrances if it's combined with something more woody or grassy, like in the other Pacifica scents like Sandalwood and Tibetan Mountain Temple. But the spice in this really speaks to me. I use this around May. It's a bit too much for me around the summer, but around spring it's just right. Very edible! It's almost got a bit of a ginger undertone to it. It's not my absolute favorite Pacifica scent (although I do think that it's the most popular), but it's definitely a regular in my rotation.

i have this in the roller ball. and the body butter, I'm drawn to the delicious orange scent, mixed with a little bit of raspberry. I'm male, if that matters. Like other reviewers may have mentioned the roller ball is very nice smelling but the lasting power SUCKS, it doesnt last over an hour unless i bury my nose to wear i put this, my arms and wrist. The last note i smell with this is bitter orange.. the body butter smells better, but is too greasy for my taste, and tacky. They're not super expensive, so i'll try other scents and see if i like those more, or maybe the solid perfumes.

Delish scent. Alsolutely zero lasting power. I got this (roller ball) in a trio pack with the body butter and a tinted lip balm, both of which I love. Not that I don't love the juicy true orange scent, it just literally evaporates in five minutes. You're better off getting the body butter - the scent lingers much longer and it's really moisturizing and full of great oils. YUM.

I bought this unsmelled because I had several of their soaps in other scents that I liked and I heard that this was a popular fragrance. My problem with this scent is that I find it just too sweet. Yes, it is slightly more complicated than bath and body works scents, but not that much more. I expected other notes in it and instead it smells like sweet fruit. I don't find anything sexy or interesting about smelling like fruit candy. If I would have read more about the scent I would have realized that every note in it is a berry or fruit though, so its my fault. I got the roller ball, which works well and is nice. Yes, the fragrance does need to be reapplyed often as it is a natural scent. This might be nice as a body wash, but was too sweet for me as a perfume.

PROS: Sweet and true blood orange scent. Lasting power was fine on mine (for it not being a true "parfum".) Found the perfume spray at Whole Foods. Just plain yummy and the price is right!
CONS: If you don't like sweet, stay away from this. These do not come with caps on them. That's right; that's what I said. (But because I love this scent so much and cannot find an alternate to come close to the specific scent, I''m leaving this at a 5.)
APPLICATION TIPS: I love to pair this with Pacifica's Island Vanilla scent for a surprisingly subtle version of an orange creamsicle.

Gorgeous burst of sweet, fruity, fresh oranges. Not juvenile, just gorgeous. This would be my new fav summer scent. Except MAJOR problem - zero lasting power, and I do mean zero! It's so disappointing to find a scent so amazing, but you can't really enjoy it because it fades so fast!

Really nice, single-note type orange scent. Very simple orange scent with the slightest touch of spiciness. Has the spicey/heady slightly bitter orangey-ness you associate with a blood orange. Decent lasting power for a natural perfume but not as good as some of the other Pacificas.

A true blood orange scent with sharp, tart, swwet and bitter acidic notes just like the fruit. LOVE it - and have it as a 10 mL roll on as part of a kit.
Can't wait to try the shower gel and body butter in this delectable "bite right in" scent.

Yummy!!!! Reminds me of the smoothie bar. Love this stuff.

My mom and I love this perfume. It smells dead on to blood oranges. I'm dying to eat blood oranges here in California after having them in Italy but haven't had luck doing so. This perfume takes care of the craving for me! It smells delicious.
The fact that the perfume doesn't have a cap doesn't bother me as much since I don't plan on carrying it with me. I bought the roll on version to take of that for me. I plan on repurchasing this.
Bonus: Its also vegan.

Lovely, clean, fresh smelling, hubby loves this one! So do I, annual fave.
And it's fairly earth friendly or green, LOVE even more.

I was really excited to try this product, based purely on the fact that it's ORANGE and I go crazy for orange scented products. I was hoping to layer it with JM Orange Blossom for longevity but unfortunately on my first application, my husband walked into the bathroom and asked me what I had just Febreezed. I don't particularly want to smell like Febreeze, even though it is super pleasant and makes my furniture smell fresh. I'll keep it just because it's a cute bottle and is still a lovely fragrance - warm citrus, as juicy as biting into an orange on a hot summer day. I love the packaging and the whole line is adorable - will probably be trying the California Star Jasmine at some stage.
It does last longer than I expected - easily four hours plus - and certainly longer than JM OB on my skin.
Pros: comes in all sorts of different sizes and formulations - traditional bottle, solid perfume and a rollerball as well as body products and a gorgeous candle. Inexpensive and pleasant, perfect for a room spray if you decide it's not quite for you. Natural and doesn't irritate my skin or my nose.
Cons: Husband thinks it smells like Febreeze. Can't think of any other cons.
You can find this line at Whole Foods and Sephora.. and I'm sure it's stocked in other places because it is truly lovely and evidently works well for a lot of people who don't have picky partners.

This is one of my favorite fragrances, very citrus-y and light. It has a strong staying power but it's not overpowering at the same time. Very important to me is that it's got all natural ingredients as I'm prone to getting headaches alot from regular scents/fragrances and can't almost wear anything without getting either a migraine or headache half an hour later. This brand is the big exception! I like their scents and am happy with it.
