Last spring, when I noticed the new fragrance from Lancome, called O de L’Orangerie on the shelves of Sephora I was at first intrigued by the shape of the bottle. Then, after passing the initial surprise, I asked my wife to help me, by testing the perfume on her skin. What I have discovered is a well-behaved scent, ideal for the long summer days.
O de L’Orangerie was introduced in 2011 as a floral feminine fragrance, developed by perfumers Anne Flipo and Dominique Ropion. This perfume is intended as a descendant (read flanker!) for O de Lancome, arrived on the market with an advance of 42 years, in 1969. According to the perfumers statements, Anne Flipo’s “We wanted to create a unique, singular orange blossom” and respectively Dominique Ropion’s “We had in mind the idea of dazzlingly fresh femininity” it is obvious that the nature’s gifts were employed as a source of inspiration for this fragrance.
The beginning in O de L’Orangerie is pungent, mixing accords of bergamot, orange and aquatic notes. Later, as the mid development takes places, you are guided through a blend of neroli, orange blossom and jasmine. O de L’Orangerie ends up in a woody notes, resulted from the combination of benzoin and woodsy notes.
The bottle that holds O de L’Orangerie is a re-interpretation of its classic predecessor, made from transparent glass and reveling a pale-green liquid. The face selected for the advertising campaign is the Ukrainian Canadian model Daria Werbowy, who is featured in a paradisiacal atmosphere that has the orange blossom as main character.
