What do orange perfumes smell like?

We all know what orange smells like: oranges are sweet, fruity, and fresh, with a tangy fragrance profile hovering somewhere between a mandarin and a pomelo. Among the most popular top notes, orange adds a refreshing twist and a whole lot of sparkle to any composition. They’re incredibly versatile, too. Orange perfumes can be worn year-round, are refreshing, uplifting, and act as a great pick-me-up on those days when you’re feeling a little flat or lethargic. They also make great evening fragrances for men and women – their lush aromas linger on the skin and are generally light and easy to wear, meaning they’ll last all night without even coming close to overwhelming your date.

Which perfumes contain orange notes?

The best orange perfumes capture the scent of fresh orange in all its glory, often laying the foundation for a fragrance that can also be rounded out by other notes like sandalwood, vanilla, juniper, lavender, rose, and cedarwood. Among some of the best-known orange fragrances, you can find is the bubbly and cheerful Clinique Happy Eau de Parfum – an upbeat summer scent perfect for lazy afternoons spent by the pool. The scent of orange is more raw and unfiltered in Guerlain’s Aqua Allegoria Orange Soleia Eau de Toilette, a woody-fruity blend that perfectly captures the scent of freshly picked oranges at their ripest. For a decidedly more feminine fragrance, try this next orange perfume from the Hugo Boss brand, Orange Woman Eau De Toilette. Bold and captivating at the same time, this orange-scented charmer radiates charisma and spontaneity.

Is there a difference between orange and orange blossom perfume notes?

The orange perfume oil is obtained by cold pressing the peel of oranges. Orange blossom, meanwhile, is an essential oil extracted from the bitter-orange flowers from the bitter orange tree. The main difference between them, however, is their scents. The orange note smells like, well, oranges! It has this fresh, tart, and juicy scent not unlike so many citruses. Orange blossom, on the other hand, is a multifaceted, floral scent with hints of bitterness.

So, which should you choose? It all depends on what you’re looking for. If you want a fresh, summery literal interpretation of the fruit, go for the orange (fruit) note. If you’re looking for something with a cleaner edge, perhaps with a hint of floral elegance, then orange blossom may be for you.
