This fragrance is great layered over other fragrances to make it more complex. I actually use lavanilla vanilla blossom or vanilla grapefruit first and then lightly spritz this one over it. The combined scent is heavenly and has become my signature scent. Each person's body chemistry will react differently with scents so if you like orange, give it a try first before you buy.

Sigh, like my experience with L'occitane Cinnamon Orange fragrance, this orange fragrance was a dissappointment as well, which is too bad since I really like citrus fragrances and I love L'occitane most of the time. Like the reviewer below, I also noticed the similarity to Hermes L'orange Vert, but unlike Hermes (which I kinda like and borrow from the hubby sometimes) this just seemed more...pungent? Pungent and unpleasant. One spray and I smelled this for HOURS afterward, to my dismay. Bleh!

I got this as part of a set with les Vanilliers and Rose de 4 Reines. I really like the bottles, sort of old fashioned. My first impression was that it smelled like Hermes l'Orange Vert, which I didn't want to smell like at the time. It really didn't have any lasting power, because when I thought about checking how it smelled later, I couldn't detect it. I passed it on the my husband (who liked the Hermes l'Orange Vert) and he said it reminded him of the orange oil he uses as a fire ant deterrent, so he won't use it either.

Got this because I LOVE ORANGE and while in the L'Occitane store, someone sprayed it and it smelled great. I couldn't wait to try it amd guess I put on too many other scents that day because smelled great on me (for a while). Well, I got home and sprayed some more on, and it's totally weird. It's a "dirty" orange scent; can you believe it? It's not fresh smelling at all. It takes just a few seconds for its sharp citrusy top notes to dry down to a dank, musty smell. I repeatedly spray on though because I can't believe such a pretty beginning can end up so bad! I'm putting the small bottle up for swap and hope it finds a home where it's appreciated. Next time I'll make sure to try their Verbena. Also, I spritz on Fresh's Bergamont. That THAT'S an orange I can love!

I love this scent because on me it smells similar to my favorite floral fragrance (Taylor of London's Oxford Bouquet) which was discontinued years ago, but if you are looking for a true orange scent, look elsewhere. When I first spritz this fragrance, I do smell a slight orange fragrance, but as it dries down on me it turns into a soft musky and powdery floral with no orange in sight (I mean scent!). If that is the type of fragrance you like, then gives this lovely cologne a try, as it is relatively inexpensive (you can get a small bottle that lasts a while for $15), and the fragrance lasts ALL DAY on me, which is rare for a cologne. Interestingly, the notes of my long-lost Oxford Bouquet were lily, jasmine and ylang, so I have no idea why this fragrance smells so similar (its notes are orange, mandarin and bergamot), but I am glad it does. The packaging is lovely and simplistic. This is definitely one to try before you buy since it is different than what you might expect from a fragrance with orange in the name, but I am glad I tested it at my local L'Occitane boutique!

Brisk and fresh orange fragrance. Sturdy.

Copy says: "This light and breezy scent, made from the leaves, twigs and fruit of Seville orange trees, will energize and refresh the spirit." Very apt. There isn't any orange blossom in this, but a light orangepeel scent mixed with an earthy dried orangeleaf scent, like breezes from an orchard in a warm climate. Smells like a place I'd like to be. It's lovely, not too strong, but quite long-lasting, refreshing and alluring. Puts me in a good mood.

Wow, this product seems to be the extreme type, love it or hate it! Well, I'm on the love it side...the first time I smelled it, I loved the way it made me smell like I just stepped out of the shower or an orange orchard for that matter...I also like the way it smelled afterward, whenever I'd move, I'd catch a whiff and I wanted to kiss me for smelling so good!! Of course, it's just cologne, so it's not as out there as perfume, its scent is subtle and clean, a girl-next-door type of smell =) Putting this on makes me feel light and refreshed =)

A disappointing orange scent. Initially too much alcohol it hurts nose. Then it dries down to a weak powdery orange. Pretty mild but this entire L' Oranger range is a disappointing one. To think I am an orange scent lover.
