Secrets d'Essences Neroli is not only about the namesake note but also the various parts of the sweet and bitter orange tree. I am wondering if the latter fact could also be partly responsible for the distinct shifts in my perception of this perfume over a couple of years.
It was also among the fragrances to prove to me that circumstances like temperature did actually affect the development and perception almost beyond recognition.

When tried in the cooler season, I was instantly repelled by the bitterness of a sanitizer or sunscreen and looked in vain for anything remotely resembling nature, be it the orange or the flower. The next time when the temperatures had risen, the spray nozzle was already emanating a delicate orange scent. While the association of swimming pools owing to the white cleanness could not be denied, there was a hint of something nostalgic I could not put my finger on, connected to my grandmother in my childhood - a ladylike composure without going the direction of soapy stuffiness, a soothing breath of air in the humid heat... it may have been a whiff of 4711 caught on a midsummer's day. At this stage, I could not imagine how this fragrance could ever be regarded as 'too sweet' as stated by some reviewers.

I was enlightened on this matter when the orange blossom finally showed itself after two years. The fresh, almost tangy breeze had morphed to a sweetened muskiness, the translucent whiteness had turned to a muted 'matte' - exactly corresponding to the transition of the bottle from opaque white top to clear glass lower part (a coincidence?). For some horrifying moments, I even felt a slight resemblance to the orange lollipop of Le Couvent des Minimes' Eau Aimable which I cannot smell without a headache. In the end, however, SE Neroli with its orange milkiness remained on the safe side without crossing the sugar boundary to become too bothersome or annoying.

I would not withhold SE Neroli from any gender; if worn in appropriate doses, it could please as a sweeter and less fresh alternative to the classic Eau de Cologne with surprising tenacity.
The brand seems to have changed the package, replacing the thread attachment with a print - it is unclear if the scent itself was subject to changes. There also are rumours about discontinuation. Should this take place, the brand will certainly miss a unique scent among their perfume range.

Natural smell, very nice.
On first application it reminded me of Maroussia, probably because of the orangeblossom. They don´t have anything else in common. Neroli is a woody and aromatic fragrance. If I didn´t know it was an Yves Rocher fragrance I would have guessed a Hermés. It smells very natural and clean, very cozy and not too sweet. I really like it. Good job YR!
