Hello ladies,

I'm in the market for a nice orange based fragrance. I would like something fairly subtle (despite my user name I'm not actually an orange...!) and not too sweet, but also not too spicy, which I know makes me mega awkward.

I've got the Hugo Boss one but I find it's too synthetic and musky if that helps???!!

Any ideas?

TIA smile

Another vote for Guerlain Mandarin and Basilic - I love it, really fresh and light. Pamplelune is lovely too, more grapefruity though.

Lots of great suggestions here for me to investigate too - love citrussy perfumes.

This is a lovely orange blossom EDT from Italian perfumers Monotheme (now being sold in revamped M&S beauty section) just not very long lasting...

Hermes Eau de Merveilles is lovely. It's like orange mixed with the smell of the sea. Can be found at a reasonable price on Ebay (as well as paying full whack, obviously). There's several spin offs in this series, which play around with the theme.

Aqua di Parma is a lovely classic citrus cologne. It's unisex, so it's not girly.
