Orange Blossom by Aftelier
Orange Blossom by Aftelier has notes of blossom, neroli, bergamot and orange.
The opening of this perfume is a fresh, almost “green” scent that smells like crushed neroli leaves which have just begun to wilt. There’s also a softness that smells like orange blossom. It’s very green and I would even say earthy, but not in a dirty way. There is also something powdery and sweet which could be the neroli or orange blossom flowers themselves. It’s so unusual and unlike anything else I’ve ever smelled before. This is incredibly complex and beautiful.
After a while, the green and earthy tones dissipate and what’s left is sweet neroli with an almost smoky undertone. It’s still quite young and fresh, but there’s also something woody in this scent too that smells like an amber-orange blossom mix.
Pacifica Nerola Orange Blossom Perfume Spray
Pacifica Nerola Orange Blossom Perfume Spray has notes of neroli, bergamot, orange blossom, petitgrain and palo santo wood. It’s a green scent but not green in the same way as Aftelier’s Orange Blossom. This is green in the way that plants are green with leaves so it smells less dry.
It opens with an intense, bitter green burst that’s almost sharp. It smells like crushed leaves and there’s also a sweetness in the background along with something more powdery. After a few minutes it mellows out into a sweet, zesty scent that smells of freshly squeezed oranges. It stays this way for over an hour before disappearing on my skin completely.
The orange blossom in this is more of a zesty, almost “black” orange which smells very fresh and makes it smell slightly metallic. The neroli is sweet but not as bitter as Aftelier’s. I feel like the combination of bergamot and neroli gives it that sharp top note before mellowing out into something sweeter. It’s a wonderful summer scent, but it doesn’t last very long on my skin.
Neroli Portofino Acqua di Parma
Neroli Portofino Acqua di Parma has notes of wild orange blossom, neroli and petitgrain. Neroli Portofino opens up on my skin with a bright, almost sharp citrusy orange blossom scent which smells fresh and slightly watery. There’s also the tiniest bit of woodiness in this but it’s more like an echo of woods rather than something that smells like a real wood. The neroli is powdery and sweet but not in a cloying way. It’s more of a gentle, fresh sweetness that makes me think of freshly scrubbed skin rather than orange blossom candies or perfumed fabric softener.
After about an hour on my skin it smells sweeter with something powdery in the background. It smells like crushed orange blossom petals or leaves because it’s so green, but there are no hints of dirtiness. The scent is still bright although not as sharp as when I first applied it and it has more depth to it now.
At this point, Neroli Portofino also becomes very similar to Aftelier’s Orange Blossom because it smells like orange blossom with dark, almost smoky undertones. I think the citrusy top notes aren’t as pronounced now so they don’t overpower the woodiness that was already present in the scent.
I bet this would smell amazing layered with something sweet and “gourmand” to make it really stand out. It’s a wonderful scent but my only complaint is that it doesn’t last long on my skin which makes it hard to enjoy, especially at its price point.
