Orange is one of my favourite summer perfume notes. The fresh citrus scent of orange has a sweet undertone which is comforting and very unisex. These are my top recommendations if you are looking for an orange perfume, I have included mainstream and designer scents for any budget.

Acqua Di Parma Arancia Di Capri

Acqua Di Parma Arancia Di Capri is my favourite orange perfume and my favourite fragrance from Acqua Di Parma. This unisex orange perfume uses a hint of caramel to bring out the warmth of the orange fragrance note. It’s a perfect combination for me and gives the fragrance a depth it wouldn’t have it was just a citrus orange perfume.

Miss Dior Eau de Toilette

Miss Dior Eau de Toilette has the signature rose and patchouli fragrance note which were in the discontinued Miss Dior Eau de Parfum 2017. However, the scent is fresh with Blood Orange which creates a zesty, spring like feel to the perfume. Miss Dior Eau De Toilette was also reformulated and the version we have now was quietly relaunched in 2019.

For more information check out my article on the entire Miss Dior perfume range.

Dior Poison Girl Eau de Toilette

Dior Poison Girl Eau de Toilette is a beautiful orange fragrance. Frosted orange, bitter orange and orange blossom dominate the scent making it super fresh and great for summer.

A caramel note has been added to the vanilla base note which mixes with the orange to create a sugary orange feel which is comforting and unusual.

I really like the scent of Dior Poison Girl Eau de Toilette but I do wish it was an Eau de Parfum because I find it only lasts a few hours.

For more on Dior Poison check out my article on every perfume in the Poison range.

Chanel Chance Eau Vive

Chanel Chance Eau Vive, released in 2015, is a burst of fresh citrus blood orange and grapefruit. Perfect for humid weather, it’s a very refreshing day scent. There is also the jasmine of the original in Chanel Chance, and the vetiver green note from Chanel Chance Eau Fraiche. Again, this is an Eau De Toilette so don’t expect it to last all day.

Check out my article on every version of Chanel Chance.

Lacoste Touch Of Pink

Touch of Pink is my favourite Lacoste fragrance. This is a fresh, and very affordable every day orange perfume. The Lacoste sporty branding makes me feel like Touch Of Pink would be ideal after a shower or workout.

Top notes of orange and blood orange combine with feminine undertones of violet and jasmine and a fruity peach note to create an innocent and fresh orange perfume.

Hugo Boss Deep Red

Hugo Boss Deep Red is an iconic 2000s fragrance which uses orange and clementine as the main note to create a long lasting fruity vanilla perfume.

The fruitiness of the orange is brought out by Blackcurrant, Pear and a fresh Ginger note. As the opening fades a warm vanilla and tuberose is revealed which really last well on the skin.

Hugo Boss Deep Red is probably the strongest orange perfume available right now.

Beyoncé Heat Rush

Beyoncé’s fragrances are incredibly affordable and as a result I recommend them a lot as an everyday perfume.

Beyoncé Heat Rush is a super fruity orange perfume; passionfruit and cherry create an orange cocktail vibe which is fun and tropical. Mango Blossom, Hibiscus and Orchids create a feminine exotic heart note too; making Beyoncé Heat Rush ideal for vacation.

Tocca Stella

Tocca is a niche perfume range which isn’t widely available so it’s one of those fragrances your friends probably won’t also be wearing.

Tocca Stella is a feminine blood orange and bitter orange which uses a lily heart note to create a classic undertone which is elegant and pretty.

Atelier Cologne Orange Sanguine

Atelier Cologne specialise in citrus perfumes and Orange Sanguine is one of their most popular fragrances. This unisex scent uses Blood Orange and Bitter Orange to create a sophisticated orange perfume which is supported by a hint of amber, and geranium.

I think Atelier Cologne have recently withdrawn from the US but their perfumes can still be found on Amazon.

Dolce & Gabbana Fruit Collection Orange

Whisk yourself away to a Sicilian orchard where Sicilian Oranges and Calabrian Bergamot are being freshly picked.

Basil adds a slightly green aromatic undertone and Orange Blossom helps support the Orange scent.

Dolce & Gabbana Fruit Collection Orange is probably the warmest of the three fragrances. Check out my review of the entire fruit collection.

Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Orange Soleia

Aqua Allegoria Orange Soleia (which translates to Orange Sun) is a super fresh Blood Orange fragrance. 

Bergamot and Petitgrain add to the citrus testiness, plus there is a hint of Mint but fundamentally this is a Blood Orange fragrance.

I recommend Aqua Allegoria Orange Soleia for humid weather; its refreshing, sharp and instantly lifts your mood.

There are some beautiful fragrances in the Aqua Allegoria perfume range, check out my article which reviews each scent.

Clinique Happy

Released in 1998, Clinique Happy was the iconic, affordable fresh fragrance of the 2000s. Still affordable today, I know many people who have been wearing it since it was released. Clinique Happy combines orange with grapefruit, lemon and apple to create a super fresh opening note. This citrus cocktail is accompanied by feminine heart notes of lily-of-the-valley, freesia, mimosa and rose. These floral notes make the fragrance very universal; its a great office perfume which you can wear year-round.

Hermes Eau d’Orange Verte

Like many of the Hermes fragrances, Hermes Eau d’Orange Verte includes a number of green notes which make it the most green orange perfume in this list.

Orange is the star of the show, but it is accompanied by oakmoss, mint, cassis and patchouli. These green notes add depth to the orange and lemon top notes which creates a very unisex orange perfume.
