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.

I purchased a couple other Jo Malone products (including the Orange Blossom cream) and received two samples of this. It's a week later and I have drained one, the other is half empty. I can't give the analogy of orange trees in California like a lot of reviewers do, but I can say that this smells EXACTLY like Honeysuckles to me. Not a honeysuckle perfume, just straight up honeysuckles. Driving through the country in the south with your windows down honeysuckle. I am lucky enough to have a bush at the corner of my house, and now I have it in a bottle (because I caved and bought a full size bottle). It can get a bit sweet so I have been spritzing a smidgen of 154 (a recommendation I received) to tone it down a bit. It also smells pretty good with a touch of Vanilla Anise.
UPDATE: This perfume will have bees and hummingbirds...yes, hummingbirds chasing you. Just a heads up. ;)

I love Jo Malone. I own a lot of her fragrances. This is in my top 6.
Smells like sweet, beautiful orange blossoms. Very sweet. I use it often mixed with something else to give it more depth. I love it with Nutmeg and Ginger and Sweet Lime and Cedar and for nights out it's luscious with Pomegranate Noir.
Sometimes I'll wear it out by itself.
As with all Jo Malone scents it doesn't have much silage but this lasts a few hours on me.
My favorite Jo Malone as reference is Nectarine Blossom and Honey typically mixed with Blue Agave and Cocoa.

Really love this scent. Perfect for Spring and Summer. It's a breath of freshness, but it's not over powering. It can be combined w/ other Jo Malone colognes to give it that bit of floral, yet fruity scent. I would've given it 5 lippies if this cologne lasted longer on me. I noticed that after 5-6 hours, I can barely smell it on me. That being said, I don't think this cologne will last me the whole day. I would expect it to last longer since it's so expensive. I don't mind having this is my perfume collection 'cause I just love it so much!

I had read a review by the Make-Up Artist, Tanya Burr (awesome) and she mentioned Jo Malone as one of her favorites. While at Nordstrom today, I happend upone all the Jo Malone Frangrances. Usually, I am very very picky...like something light....fresh....and won't make me gag when I spray it! OMG! Jo Malone fragrances are sooooo yummy. My first purchase today was Orange Blossom. I am home now...5 hours later and it smells so good still!!! I don't know if my whole attitude changed when I put this on but people were talking to me in the grocery store! 2 people made conversation! It must be the scent AND my happy attitude after finding this yummy scent. I can not wait to purchase more of Jo Malone scents!!!

I grew up in Florida and the scent of orange blossoms pervaded my childhood. Not surprisingly, it's one of my favorite scents, but it is surprisingly difficult to find a perfume that smells like the real thing. I've tried so many chasing the elusive goal and they all fell short until I got my hands on a sample vial of Jo Malone Orange Blossom cologne. It was like climbing into a memory, a perfect replica of genuine orange trees in full bloom. So many of the other perfumes smell more like actual oranges than the flowers, but the blossoms have a delicate, spicy scent with just the fainest hint of orange zest. I don't know what kind of magic Jo Malone does to capture this mysterious scent in a bottle, but as a child who played in orange groves for many years I give it my official stamp of authenticity. Lots of perfumes use orange blossom as part of their scent, but I prefer what is referred to as a 'single note'. This smells just like orange flowers and nothing but orange flowers. Because of its delicate scent, this cologne is almost impossible to put too much on, and it lasts for about five hours. I love to re-apply anyway, something I probably do more than necessary. The only reason I did not give a full rating is because it is insanely expensive. Neiman Marcus sells a 1 oz bottle for $55 and a 3.4 oz bottle for $110. It is possible to get it for less through places like Ebay, but it is still not going to be cheap. A less pricey alternative is Henri Bendel Orange Flower, but it isn't as exact a replica as Jo Malone. I would recommend getting a sample vial first before shelling out for a full bottle.

Lovely fragrance if you like floral scents. I also like the fact that it's very light, more like a body splash.

I love the Jo Malone fragrances and the Orange Blossom is another home run for Jo Malone. It is such a ladylike femine scent, its is noticeable without being overbearing, this is great on its own, but blends so well with all of the Jo Malone fragrances. The dry down is a soft floral scent with a hint of citrus, it smells like a nice walk in the garden on a spring day. LOVE it!

This one has promise, but it's not quite perfect. I wouldn't exactly call it a 4, but it's not as low as a 3. The initial blast is a nice, green orange blossom that really reminds me of the whole plant, and is very nice. However, as it drys down and fades, I lose a bit of that orange blossom and greenness. It fades into a scent reminiscent of tuberose gardenia. I really have to put my nose into my skin and sniff in order to catch even the smallest whiff of orange blossom. I like tuberose gardenia, but not if I'm wearing orange blossom. This is why I don't think it's quick 4 stars.
Edit: brought it down to 3 the more I think about it.

Yuum. Went perfume hunting for presents for the family on my trip outside during the summer and bought this for my aunt who loves these type of scents and just about anything with orange. Fresh, clear, clean and soft. Truly does smell like oranges and I wish I had bought a small bottle for me as they do not sell it here. I LOVE this.

I love this fragrance! It's so fresh and clean, not too sweet, just beautifull and refreshing! when I wear this I picture lotus flowers floating in a pond on a sunny spring day...It also reminds me of my childhood in California and the orange blossom flowers I grew up smelling there :)

I'm so glad that I only bought a small roll-on bottle of this scent from http://theperfumedcourt.com/ because it just doesn't last very long. It has a pleasant, almost greenhouse type scent... but it's not something I would go out and spend big bucks on.
