Orange blossom in C major
Directly after a comment on a cologne that doesn't smell like one (Wellington) I would like to add a short comment on a very appealing non-cologne that resembles a traditional summer cologne (even if it only lasts about two hours), although it is more full-bodied, richer and more complex.

Orange blossom fragrances often have a tendency to be jasminy-influenced and musky and sluggish. I don't like this direction, which is also embodied by the much-loved APOM. Oranzo, the sympathetic new release by Mrs. Delacourte, is not a representative of such a milky-dull fluffiness in a minor key; of the jasmine indicated in the olfactory accumulation (which is not a pyramid, the scent is very linear!) one should not be deceived in any case.

Oranzo impresses with a wonderful cuvée of perfectly composed, bright and full-bodied orange hesperidic: flowery without any doubt, also nerolig, but above all also tart and green-leaved. Maybe not a highly original scent, but for me a reference for the direction "masculine, freshly tart orange blossom" and a great proof that you can compose a complex, fine citrus scent even with loud orange notes (without lemon, lime, bergamot etc.)
For me, Oranzo (note 9 with a slight tendency to 8.5) would be a candidate for purchase in this summertime if I had not been given the cheerful, ultra-modern, poetically playful and sprinkled with all kinds of poetic and playful notes of hay and salt, the orange blossom scent Azemour les Orangers (note 9 with a tendency to 9.5) as a gift.

In any case clear test recommendation for all friends of herb citric fragrances!

Refreshing, *crisp* and summery - short introductory comment
For me, Sylvaine Delacourte's latest water is a more intensive 4711, but even fresher and longer lasting. However, the fragrance becomes very close to my body after just one hour and then also less spectacular, but I can still perceive it easily on myself after 7-8 hours. In summer I would definitely want to wear it, but I still don't want to invest 135 Euros for 100 ml in it. Instead, I will rather go for Ozkan, which I like best from this series and also has the longest endurance. The least impressed from the Orange Blossom Collection was Oscarine.

Those who do not like 4711 at all will probably not be happy with this fragrance. This sparkling summer scent is definitely unisex and of higher quality than many fragrances of this rather fleeting scent. Give it a try! :)

As a side note - most of you will be familiar with this fact: Sylvaine Delacourte has worked for 15 years as creative director for the House of Guerlain and is therefore a very experienced Parisian perfumer.

Freshly mown oranges
Since I wasn't 100% convinced by Ozkan, the leathery-sweet orange blossom scent of S. Delacourte, Oranzo is a much more interesting chapter from this series. Already the entrance promises good:
Very fresh green, very bitter orange, very invigorating! A very high quality summer cocktail.
The fragrance remains green, energizing and bitter orange, with juicy fruity clementine shoots alternating with crushed leaves of citrus plants.
The green bitterness, which normally would not have been my thing if I had only read about it without experiencing it at first hand, sleepwalks on the narrow degree between freshness and darkness. Dazzling beautiful!
I have to mention a small deficiency: the not to be despised Sillage has led to the fact that my husband was carried away by the remark: "Do you have a new deodorant? That's much too strong."(..says someone who happily overdosed One Million until a few years ago - but let's leave the subject.)
Yes, Oranzo turns heads. But I think he's really good.

Oranzo, the coolness
Sylvaine Delacourte worked for Guerlain as a VIP customer consultant for over 15 years and was able to gain a great deal of experience, especially in the creation of customer-specific personal perfumes, which she now preferred to incorporate into her own collections. She made use of her talent to work out certain characteristics of individual scents, to emphasize another facet or even to change the whole character of a scent by selecting the raw materials
After having already dedicated herself to the scents musk and vanilla with 5 scents each, the Orange Blossom Collection has now been released, where everything revolves around orange blossom. I have to admit that the marketing concept brings out several fragrances with overlapping scents and brings a winking smile to my face. At first I thought that Sylvaine could not decide from the 200 attempts to develop a perfume (so many attempts she needs according to own statement), in the end, which is the best one. So we took the 5 best ones and brought them all out together. Let the customer decide. But I don't think that would do her justice.

Since their sample sets are very inexpensive compared to many other brands, there is certainly nothing wrong with approaching their approach and smelling the subtle differences.

From the Orange Blossom Collection, I liked Oranzo the best. Maybe it's because the orange blossom here shows its unsweet and unflowery side and for me it's also the most masculine fragrance out of the range. Although I am well aware that many ladies could also enjoy this fragrance.

Oranzo begins fresh and spicy, the citric notes - above all bitter orange - do not play too much in the foreground and are soon accompanied by light jasmine and delicate orange blossom. Deprived of any sweetness, the orange blossom is also unable to set fruity or softer accents. Rather, woody and green notes take over, which can certainly be traced back to the mastic. The mastic resin, extracted from the trunks of the wild pistachio, exudes an almost ethereal green, slightly bitter aroma that reminds me of freshly peeled tree trunks. At the same time, it creates a refreshing and invigorating feeling that catapults Oranzo directly onto the watch list for summer fragrances.

In the further course "Sauber"-Moschus joins in, accompanied by a dry powderiness, but also this does not want to know anything about sweetness and leaves Oranzo in his - yes, one could accuse him of it - straight-lined, change-unwilling slightly bitter-green woodiness. But there are people who like that. Me, for example.

Oranzo is certainly not the figurehead of the series for the theme orange blossom, because in fact it is the least noticeable to me compared to the other 4 scents. Nevertheless, Oranzo is an uncomplicated, refreshing, clean scent that is by no means softened.

I really like the concept with the thematic examination of individual fragrances. The other four in the row smell completely different. And so one goes on the search for traces of the orange blossom and discovers that there is much more behind it.
