Boiled Orange
In search of an invigorating, yet softly bedded summer scent - or let's say quietly: an affordable alternative to the unsurpassable Bigarade concentree - I now have HISTOIRE D'ORANGERS on my skin. Seldom has it been clear so quickly: This is not going to work out with us. Whoever knows and likes Grand Neroli (Atelier Cologne), Vetiris (Lubin) and Bigarade concentree (Malle) can only be disappointed here. Something so lulling and sticky has seldom come under my nose. You can also stand in the garden in front of the Mexican orange flower and express the blossoms on your skin. The result should be similar.
The shrub develops its charm only at a certain distance from the nose. But while you can easily get away from the orange blossom by taking a few steps backwards, you are helplessly at the mercy of the sprayed scent. I am clearly missing the counterpart to the creamy, boiled monothematic of the orange blossom, which is very soft, but also very musty. Invigorating goes differently. If I had to write a package insert, it would say: Absolute danger of headache. And whoever now says: "It's your own fault, it is already written in the description that no bitter orange is processed here", is of course absolutely right.

Fluffy neroli and ambroxan...
Histoire d'Orangers is arguably a rather simplistic fragrance: a breeze of fresh neroli soon lifted by a fluffy, inky white musk, while ambroxan extends the fragrance further into the dry down. However, there are enough nuances to keep it pretty and natural-smelling.

The neroli in the opening is fresh and transparent, with just enough green bitterness to evoke the natural feeling, and nothing sharp or soapy at all. A delicate honey casts golden shimmers to the neroli, just enough to add a touch of sensuality and suavity, and nothing sticky or cotton candy-like, either. The musk is clean and slightly inky, luckily without any connotation of sharp laundry powder to me. Its fluffy texture complements the feathery neroli perfectly, and lends an expansive sensation. The scent as a whole, is like an ethereal white cloud of neroli and musk, shined upon by the golden sunlight of honey. These first 3 hours are my favourite part of Histoire d'Orangers.

Afterwards, ambroxan becomes more and more apparent, and eventually dominates the perfume and pushes the neroli to the edges. I usually perceive ambroxan as slightly salty, but mostly musky sweet with a vegetal/mineral nuance. Here, the vegetal facet does link with the neroli nicely at times. But once the ambroxan completely takes over, it's just ambroxan and nothing else, which eventually bores me in the end.

Histoire d'Orangers rather whispers its story close to the skin, and lasts at least 7 hours thanks to the extensive dry down of ambroxan.

Like many L'Artisan offerings, Histoire d'Orangers is very easy to appreciate and have a certain natural feeling in the opening. As an orange blossom fragrance, it's clean and fresh, but not as bitter herbal green as traditional cologne; it's fluffy and honeyed, but not as sweet as cotton candy or too indolic. It embodies the innocent nature of orange blossom perfectly. However, its overall simplicity and its extensive use of ambroxan may not jibe with everyone. I would mostly recommend it to those who happen to seek for a soft, non soapy neroli fragrance.
