I wanted this scent for quite a while and was so excited when I finally forked over the $50.00 for the itty-bitty bottle.
I love the smell - it's a light, soft floral that makes me think of spring, but for $50.00, I should be smelling like orange blossoms in the spring all darn day!
I put this on my wrists, back of my knees, hair, and behind my ears a little before I went out yesterday and no joke, within an hour I couldn't smell it ANYWHERE and had to re-apply.
I wouldn't gripe about the price if it had more staying power and I knew a bottle would last me a while, but come on! If I use it every day I can see this bottle lasting me a few months.
In summation, I love the scent, but the staying power is pitiful - I would not repurchase unless it came in a parfum.

I love it. It is rare for me to like a floral fragrance, so that is saying a lot. Even my husband ikes it and he is hard to please. I can easily imagine myself standing in an orange orchard whe wearing it. It reminds me of the orange smell from Disney's Soarin ride.

It has taken me a long time to finally like this. As a gourmand and fruity floral lover I am hard to please when it comes to simple straight florals. At first this was too pungent. But after a few months or so of continually trying it every so often since so many people rave about it I finally realized that I do like it when it's summer time. it reminds me a clear blue day, breezy and slightly balmy when vibrant green plants and gorgeous blossoms abound. I am going to try and mix it with some Vanilla to help increase the depth and warmth to it since I still feel it is lacking in these areas. If you like florals or grew up in a hot and humid area give this one a try. UPDATE: This scent has suddenly become cheap smelling and cloying!

This opens with a STRONG lush honeysuckle note on me. I don't know why, as the honeysuckle is not a listed note. However, even my fiance, who doesn't notice most things said "are you wearing honeysuckle?" Still, it's a lovely opening. As it dries down, instead of smelling clementine blossoms, I just smell clementine, but that's ok, it's still a pleasant smell. The close is largely jasmine, with a citrus twist. I will definitely continue to rotate this in my fragrance collection.

I love this perfume. Orange Blossom is a soft floral on me. You can initially smell the orange scent but the jasmine note is stronger and a reason I love it so much. I use to have two jasmine plants at home and wanted to find a perfume that reminded me of it for a long time. When I came across Jo Malone and tried Orange Blossom, I immediately thought of the plants. For me, this is a perfect casual spring summer scent. The drawback is that it doesn't last very long and you need to reapply. I also find it expensive ........... but worth it =)

I absolutely couldn't tolerate this. I agree with the reviewer who commented that it was polleny. This fragrance made me feel ill. I have orange blossom in my garden, this does not even remotely capture the beauty of the real thing. I don't know why I had such a bad reaction to this fragrance, maybe I have been spoilt by the true smell of orange blossoms. Severe headache inducing material.

Its is definitely floral-more than citrusy, at least on me. Nice for warm weather. Starts off smelling like sweet oranges and dries down to jasmine and some other flowers. I really smell honeysuckle even though its not in its description. After a while most of it is jasmine. I like jasmine, but this one is lacking something..it seemly isn't deep enough. I might get a bottle in the future but this is not very impressive, nice but not impressive to spend that much on it.

I love this fragrance - I grew up with orange blossoms and it reminds me of home. It is not an exact replication but a great job. Most neroli, orange blosson perfumes get it wrong, but this is pretty darned close. Can't always capture perfection (i.e. orange blossoms) in a bottle...
It is too expensive for how long it lasts, which is why it gets 4 of 5. I get compliments on it all the time, but I feel like it fades too quickly. But, by far, the best orange blossom I have come across.

This fragrance is just lovely. Every morning when i walk to my car i smell my orange trees in bloom and i got to the point in which i had to buy this cologne. it is perfectly in accord with the fragrance from my trees. this is seriously a lovely, soft, light, feminine cologne. i adore it.

One of my favorite Jo Malone scents, but not something I would buy again. I think I like her candles better than her body products. Orange blossom is pretty, but nothing out of the ordinary.

I sprayed this cologne on my wrist while I was searching for a gift for my niece and my sister. I purchased the Honey suckle nectarine for my niece and the vintage gardenia for my sister. I left the store without purchasing the orange blossom. Well during my lunch and while shopping around the maill, I kept smelling my wrist. Reminds me of summer in a spray. I had to go back and buy it. I spray it on everything, my hair, bedding, etc... So lovely.

Unfortunately, this fragrance does not smell like real orange blossoms. Don't get me wrong, it smells *very* freshly floral -- it actually smells pollen-y to my nose -- and its lasting power is quite decent. But unfortunately it is lacking the characteristic lush, creamy sweetness of actual orange flowers. I owned an orange bush for several years and I can say that the scent of orange blossoms is one of the most intoxicating that there is. But, again, this cologne does not approximate real orange blossom by a long shot. It is a nice floral scent though, distinguished by the extreme softness and freshness of its scent.

Very nice for me

I love the top notes of this fragrance (orange and orange blossom)..I don't love the scent of jasmine ( which seems more prominent, after the first few minutes and in the dry down) so I prefer layering this scent with Blue Agava (delicious).. and I loveee this scent layered with Pomegranate Noir..which seems to add a little mystery to this otherwise fresh, beautiful fragrance.
I would definitely buy this product if I could also buy PN with it as i love to layer them both..

I received this as a gift. It was part of a set of six minis. I don't usually wear citrusy fragrances because I find them boring and all very similar, but this one's different. It's a bright, sunny and joyful scent and feels like Spring has come. Citrusy and sweet at the same time, it's the best orange blossom fragrance I've tried so far. Will definitely wear this from March on.

I bought this on the on-board duty-free shopping at BA, being mesmerised by the beautiful photography and description of the product. And, oh what a beauty it is...I used it all throughout the summer and everyone - even some people at the shops - asked me what I was wearing. It has a most beautiful, romantic yet clean and fresh scent of flowers and unlike most floral scents it stays and stays. It is quite pricey, nevertheless although I virtually washed myself with this perfume for months, I am still only 1/4 through the bottle!

I love the smell of this perfume - it's not a citrusy scent at all, but a fresh, clean floral scent. There is something very comforting about this scent to me - like walking through a blossoming grove on a warm, breezy summer day. The staying power is incredible - I spritzed a tiny bit in my hair as well and can still get a fragrant wisp as I move my head around. Lovely and a definite repurchase.

Got this as a gift with purchase and I did initially like it, but after the first time wearing it, that was enough. It is way to fruity and sweet and really for the price of this brand, it wears off quickly. I can't imagine anyone except a child or teen wearing this.

Tried this on today in Saks. I liked it when I sprayed it on the tester strip - very fresh - but once it was on my skin, it was over. It seemed too bitter and very masculine for me (I tried Nectarine & Honey at the same time and got much better results with that). 5 hours later, I'm smelling my wrist again and finding that I like it A LOT. The dry-down brings up a softer, more floral, almost sweeter scent but the sharp fresh-orange note is still there, just not as strong. Sniffed again; I change my mind, it's not sweeter, just less pungent. Sniffed one more time, and I think it's more floral.... you get the point. I can't really decide! I probably won't buy because I can find better scents that work from start to finish, but it ought to be lovely on some people.

The top note of this is gorgeous. I didn't like the drydown quite as much, but it's still lovely. This is the nicest orange blossom fragrance that I've tried. My only complaint is that Jo Malone products are quite expensive.
