Citrus scents are impossibly fresh, but they also have a habit of going missing after a few hours. Until now, that is. This concentrated, distinctive blend lasts much longer than traditional citrus scents. Orange Sanguine is meant to recreate a moment in time, and mimics the blissful feeling of sitting on an oceanfront terrace, with groves of orange trees off in the distance. The joyful scent has top notes of blood orange and bitter orange, a middle transition with jasmine and geranium, and a base of amber woods, tonka beans, and sandalwood.
I liked this scent initially, but after about half an hour the orange notes wore off and all that was left was a heady, unpleasant vanilla-type scent. The price is also much too high.3
I got this sample in my April Birchbox and tossed it in a drawer with the dozens of other perfume samples I receive every so often. This morning I decided to use all of the April samples I hadn't tried, so I popped the top off the vial and dabbed a moderate amount on my wrist. My first thought: this smells like an old lady. My second thought: This smells like an old lady who has been rolling around in an orange grove. My third thought: Why did I put this Retired Floridian scent all over my wrist?
But then something happened and the scent really softened into something that I've never smelled before (and I pay over $300/bottle for the brand of perfume I currently wear and have never before thought of buying another kind). It was slightly orange, but the old lady was gone and (had I not read the description), I would have sworn there was a tiny hint of vanilla. Essentially, the perfume ended up as a really sweet - NOT cloying - and inviting scent. If this scent was a down comforter, I would never get out of bed. Def. worth a shot, and several thoughts.
I am loyal to my perfume and this just didn't beat the one I currently use. It did smell very summery though!3
The smell is very pretty but it is quite strong. I like a more subtle scent so I don't think I will use it daily, but will definitely find other uses such as keeping it in my drawers for a clean, beautiful scent.3
WOW -- if you want to smell orange/fruity/citrus-y then this definitely the fragrance for you! Great for warmer months; it made me feel fresh and awake. Unfortunately I prefer more flowery/musky scents and will probably share this sample with my friend who would go bananas for it.3
It smells good but the orange was really strong, too strong for me.3
After trying out this new fragrance I believe it might be a little too fruity for me. I do think however that it smells nice, just not for me.3
This scent is too overpowering. The citrus scent takes over everything and i don't like that. spending almost 100 dollars for a jar of heavily concentrated orange juice is ridiculous.3
The Atelier Cologne Orange Sanguine has a very "spring" kind of sent. Although, you must be careful to not put on too much or it can be a bit overpowering.3
This has a good fragrance that lasts all day, even though my after work gym session. However I'm not sure it works very well with my particular body chemistry so I will probably stick with my signature scent.3
