Habits Die Hard
The Different Company SIENNE D'ORANGE is a likeable, smooth, light orange cologne with subtlety and finesse. I am afraid, however, that it is going to be difficult to win over amateurs of Hermès CONCENTRE D'ORANGE VERTE and the like.

The problem I see is that we are (I am) used to a certain rather brisk and powerful presentation of citrus. Something like SIENNE D'ORANGE seems somewhat weak and wishy-washy in comparison. The leather here is extremely light, and on first sniff, I actually thought that this contained patchouli, in a composition parallel to LIMON DE CORDOZA. I also do not smell much in the way of cardamom, carrot, or dill in this composition. Of course those are often wielded with a heavy hand and can result in too culinary of a mix. Dill is a particularly tricky note, it seems to me.

Everything here is well-mannered and measured, even genteel. But I fear that the people who might like this subtler, lower-key orange cologne are probably those who have already learned generally to steer clear of citrus altogether because they always find it too declarative. Another good example is Bond no 9 LITTLE ITALY, which also offers a relatively strong presentation of orange. It is different from the Hermès, but equally forceful, particularly in its central citrus orange note.

I like SIENNE D'ORANGE, but not as much as these orange-focused fragrances already beloved to me. It could just be a matter of habit, but I am indeed habituated to that sort of orange: powerful, not very sweet, preferably green, and mixed with woods and/or resins.
