Sweet, fresh orange...
The word "tarocco" refers to a type of orange (blood orange), and it is said that this perfume is based on a specific dessert called "Carpaccio d'Orange" which is a desert across the Mediterranean North Africa region. The particular inspiration for this one came from the perfumer's journey in Morocco, where he ate this desert of orange slices soaked in rosewater and dusted in cinnamon & saffron.

What you get here is a "sweet" orange perfume that is dusted with spices but still smells Fresh". There is the sweet Italian blood orange, as well as Bulagrian rose, Laotian turmeric, and Sri Lankan cinnamon bark, Texas cedar, and Somalian frankincense. The is also a synthetic jasmine note (hedione) which really lifts the fragrance nicely.

This smells sweet and fresh and fantastic, very refreshing actually. You have to like orange though... I would say this is first and foremost a sweet, juicy orange mixed with saffron and rose, surrounded by a host of soft woods and some other spices (cinnamon, ginger). It is very Mediterranean and exotic. For a fragrance that is based on a fruit dessert it smells complex and refreshing. This is good stuff! Try it out in nice warm or hot weather and it will really shine, although it can be worn year round. I would say if you want a citrus which is more "interesting" and which has a little "depth" (not like the countless designer "citrus" offerings for summer)! This is a notch above all that (and people won't smell like you either). Very good choice if you like orange with a little spice and sweetness.

Orange Potpourri in a Rustic Wood Cabin
This is a dry, resinous orangey scent for adults. It has a bitter mandarin orange peel and a very refined composed dry-down. There is no hint of sweetness or tartness in spite of its very citrusy composition. It is as if a citrus vampire has sucked the very life force from this fragrance. Tarocco evolves into a very dry woody unsweetened orange scent with similarities to Atelier's Orange Sanguine. It is equally light in sillage about 2-3 inches off my arm at best and declining rapidly after the first two hours to a slightly orange rind-like skin scent for another hour before disappearing. I would describe this as day office appropriate and unisex. It doesn't do anything for me personally, but it is totally un-offensive and if you like that woody orange rind vibe...put this on your test list.
