Abstract Orange Blossoms
The next two reviews are devoted to one of the most enchanting floral essences of them all: orange blossoms. I have only two more days left in Tel Aviv & Jaffa, which was famous for its orange groves and citrus orchards. And so I decided to revisit two perfumes centered around orange blossom, yet very different from one another: Orchid by Aftelier, and Narciso Rodriguez Eau de Toilette.
While Aftelier’s Orchid is an abstract orange blossom built around the genuine essence of the flowers, Narciso Rodriguez creates the illusion of orange blossom while using next to none of the true flower essence, and is surrounding the idea of synthetic musk more than anything else.
Tomorrow is the Holocaust Rememberence Day, so no reviews will be posted to honour the day.
