i hate the metal-on-metal scratch when you put the cap on or take it off! but that's my only complaint :) it's such a nice orange scent with depth and warmth. i don't want to wear it on a hot day because it's not light, but it's nice if you want a change. it's not a common scent.

I was looking for an orange scent for ages, but those I tried (Biotherm, Clarins etc.) never really pleased me because there were always kind of chemical or strange notes in them I didn't like. Then I found this and was overwhelmed. A warm, fresh, very natural orange-scent, no annoying by-scents - just perfect.
Unfortunately, L'occitane is doscontinuing it, and I just snatched one of the last bottles yesterday. Very sad I think.

Got it as a gift for my mother. I hope she will like it but I think it seems great!

A great value! A fairly affordable quality fragrance. Bright, juicy orange that sparkles in the opening. The dry down mellows it out quite a bit, but it remains fresh. I do wish the opening orange lasted longer however. It's quite a comforting scent, classic without being too boring. By no means a revolutionary scent, but very well done and very wearable. My favourite orange fragrance to date.

A crystal clear, quality scent that works really well all year around. I prefer it in the winter when the clean, almost metallic orange is an instant mood lifter without being childishly sparkly. The name says ruban, but I think of it as a very urban scent. Non-offensive but full of character. Not a a synthetic fruit smell but a good fresh interpretation in its own right.

Sensual, fresh, sophisticated but not old, affirmative but not too masculine, and woody but not headachy. A special delicious fragrance for all seasons. Not the typical fresh orange burst you would imagine.

This is a very nice everyday fragrance. I live in Germany and this is a classic type scent here. Smells to me a lot like Eau de Lancome or Clarins. Must be some verbena there as well because it reminds me of something my grandma used to wear NOT in a bad way at all just classic and timeless. It's a refreshing scent and one that settles nicely into the skin becoming part of you. I guess just a clean, washed human smell if that makes sense! My kids like it which for a fragrance junkie like me is always an issue since if they DON'T like something they will let me know ALL DAY LONG! :P I've always had something along these lines in my fragrance rotation and suppose I always will. I like the look of the bottle-again classic styling. There's a reason scents like this stick around for literally hundreds of years!!

Exceptional. I was drawn to try this scent because I wanted a sensual, natural, orange-based (I adore orange blossom note) fragrance, that was pure and sophisticated. This amazing scent startled me with it's simultaneous pureness and complexity. It starts out sublimely orange (but not overly sweet) with a hint of wood, rendering it refreshing and also mysterious (a bonus). The amazing part is that over time (the scent holds up on me for 9 plus hours through it's incarnations) it shows a few different faces, belying it's name. At one point the scent becomes slightly floral, yet with an undercurrent of the original orange/wood notes that keep it in line. There's also a restained and elegent lemon note humming in the drydown, and then a delicate, intangible, natural presence that I can only describe as sensual and real. Just what I was looking for.

A delicious scent that is, surprisingly with a name such as "orange ribbon", quite complex! Orange notes are definitely detectable but not quite the typical citrusy "just peeled" kind, it's nestled into the scent and surrounded by spicey and maybe even slightly musky notes. L'Occitane describes the fruit as "bitter orange" ; it's not a linear sunny citrus. The complexity of the scent makes it very versatile and I've been complimented on the very first time I wore this. I see this as a year-round fragrance, the full-sized 100ml bottle is very pretty and in my opinion very appropriately priced as well.

Mmm, this spells delicious, but not in the sweet sickly way. Smells really fruity and fresh on the first spray. But the mid notes dry down to a soft scent that's irresistable in a quiet way. Doesn't scream of perfume, jus a nice, almost natural smell. A nice everyday scent, just wish the bottle wasn't so huge though. Would love to bring this out everyday for a quick mid-day spritz to freshen up!

This smells like fresh oranges upon first spray! The orange disappears quickly into a spicey and sweet tea scent, which lasts most of the day if you spray twice (it's fairly light and more like splash than EDT). Very refreshing and uplifting, and perfect for the spring/summer. It's quite unisex IMHO, especially the drydown. I thought it was a tad masculine at times, but still I couldn't help sniffing myself! I think it only comes in a 100ml bottle but it is good value. The fragrance was launched in spring 2007 round about the same time Cherry Blossom was launched, however, that one, whilst fresh and inoffensive, was also quite boring. Ruban Orange is completely different, and rather special, I think. The bottle isn't particularly attractive, but I would repurchase.
