Fleur d'Oranger 27 - Le Labo English Review

Notes: bergamot, petitgrain, grapefruit, amber, musk, vetiver

With Fleur d'Oranger 27, Le Labo is at least able to offer a fragrance where the name resembles what you will experience on skin. But, as with most of their fragrances, it fails to go beyond that. Fleur d'Oranger is a soliflore experience that mimetizes the orange flower aroma by the combination of bergamot, petitgrain and grapefruit. But Fleur d'Oranger 27 stops at this point and again it feels like a good top and base project where someone forgot to produce a base or to add a better dynamic. Fleur d'Oranger 27 feels linear, a summery orange aroma which is in parts fresh, in parts dirt and in parts green and sour, but all this is due to the characteristics of the notes. While they last a pleasant springish idea unfolds under your nose. But after they fade, what you get is a boring and generic musky woody base, that feels cheap and uninteresting. Cheap and uninteresting is not what you expect from a better crafted fragrance. But, as with most offers that relies in some kind of marketing, Le Labo hides their flaws by alluding to the revolutionary aspect of their fragrances. They are able, to be honest, to produce pleasant compositions, but what they produce don't go beyond the pleasant, with fragrances that seems unworked and without a proper identity to tie them together.
