I got this in a swap so I can't comment on the price but I really like this fragrance. Its not oranegy at all but a nice scent I will wear often.

well, this is a light cologne. Masculine, I'd say. But very generic...alas.
I do not find anything special about it, nor does it smell like oranges, let alone red oranges. I smell a lot of very generic vetiver.
It has a strange soapy-warm-citrusy note, with some spicy stuff (cinnamon, Encens ) but you can't really define what are the real notes in it.
It is un-interesting and extremely linar (=smells identical from the first moment till the last, meaning it has no complexity).
Remarkable staying power. But I don't really like it, so I'd wish it would have disappeared in a minute....

I love fragrances that dont smell like "perfume". At work, often when people come in to my office they say "It smells nice in here" or "so this is where that gorgeous smell comes from". No one every says "your perfume smells nice, what is it?" or "what perfume are you wearing?". I really like it better that way which brings me to Feu d'Orange.
Feu d'Orange smells like walking through a plantation of blood oranges. It doesn't smell "orange scented", it smells rather like blood oranges with the leaves, woods and the whole field. It is not exactly citrusy, it is green and evokes a sense of warmth but at the same time it feels fresh. Everytime I get a whiff of it, it takes me to a another place - perhaps Sicily? Although I have never gone to Sicily, I picture it to smell like this bright, sunny, happy place.
The packaging is simple, almost verging on masculine but I think it is best this way as it is unisex and anything too fancy would put off the men. This fragrance is btw neither feminine or masculine, just very unisex. I think it would smell great on anyone. The price is also quite good for the amount you get .

I can't remember the last time I impulse-bought a perfume...and yet I plunked down $60 for Feu d'Orange within minutes of spraying it. The pure OJ smell of Ruban d'Orange is apparent within the first few seconds, except even sweeter (blood orange, apparently). But the real magic is what happens next: it blooms into a full-fledged Oriental with notes of woods, vetiver, anise, absinthe and vanilla. Simply beautiful and the drydown is exquisite. For an EdT it is incredibly long-lasting. I will plan to wear this year-round. EDIT: I just had an epiphany: this is nearly identical to Serge Lutens' Douce Amere but with an orange topnote.

Umm this smells delicious. SO good that i could eat it. Its blood orange, which makes this a really warm fragrance. The body oil EDT combo is the best!

Recently launched (Feb 2008) in time for Valentines - this is a more intense version of last year's Ruban Orange (which I love). Starts off with deliciously juicy sweet blood-orange, and as an improvement from Ruban Orange, the juicy notes are detectable alongside the middle notes and drydown. The woodsy-tea notes are almost identical to Ruban Orange, lasting maybe a tad longer. It's still not a strong fragrance and is more of a splash, but I love the intensified orange! Absolutely delicious for spring and summer. Costs GBP28.00 for 60ml (Ruban Orange costs GBP30 for 100ml), and comes in a simple but fiery red-orange spray bottle. This is ltd ed.
I'm waiting for L'Occitane to launch their new intensified Cherry Blossom fragrance later this week in time for Mother's Day - apparently it's supposed to be fruitier than last year's version...
