Heya Perfume Posse! Portia on the Posse all the way from from Australian Perfume Junkies. We will be looking at a fragrance that arrived this week in a split from Monica on one of the fragrance boards on Facebook. Thanks Monica.
Fleur d’Oranger 27 by Francoise Caron for Le Labo 2006

Fragrantica gives these featured accords:
Orange blossom, petitgrain, bergamot, lemon
Orange is right, the fruit, the tree, the flower, the pith and the juice. Straight up orange. Fleur d’Oranger 27 is a wealth of oranges. I also get a little almond and some zingy rose but basically this is a citrus, very cologne-ish, refreshing and a little sweet warmed by some resins perhaps and into the heart we get some breathiness and spice, none of which I can name. I’ve been wearing Fleur d’Oranger 27 the last couple of days and it smells like something else I’ve worn in the not too distant past but I can’t put my finger on it.

Fleur d’Oranger 27 is lovely, smiley and if you want to smell of citrus plus for about 5-6 hours then this fairly linear baby might be exactly what you’re looking for. I like it but think the price a bit steep for what it is. Though it’s really nice, I just seem to be waiting for it to happen, if that makes sense. You will love wearing it for spring and summer and even in autumn it has a lovely sizzling sparkle that will remind you of warmer times.
