Giving fragrance suggestions is one of my favorite things to do. I love when people ask me about fragrances. Oddly enough, it seems that I get the most requests for perfumes that smell like old-fashioned cosmetics and for perfumes that smell like orange creamsicles.
I’ve put together my guide of perfumes that smell like an orange cream pop. These are the perfumes that I’ve tried that smell like oranges and vanilla cream. And I’m surprised by how many of these retail for under $75!
The Under $75
Skeem Blood Orange Perfume Oil - Skeem is known for their home fragrances. Blood Orange is a bright citrus with a hint of vanilla that is used in their candles. It is now available as a personal fragrance. It’s more orange than cream. The roll-on retails for $15 at Skeem.
Smell Bent Sunshine Perfume Oil – This is a fun orange creamsicle scent with an unexpected, beautiful sandalwood dry-down. It can be worn in any season. The perfume oil retails for $20 at Smell Bent. If you don’t like oil perfumes, there is also an EDT.
Demeter Orange Cream Pop Cologne - This is Demeter’s take on orange + vanilla ice cream + wooden stick. It’s good but the longevity is terrible. But, it’s fun and inexpensive at $20 for 1 oz. at Demeter.
Sarah Horowitz Parfums Perfect Vanilla EDP - This perfume is a blend of vanilla cream and blood orange over Egyptian musk and dry tobacco. It’s a warm, yummy scent that isn’t completely edible because of the musk. The 1 oz. EDP retails for $60. A perfume oil roll-on is also available for $40 at Sarah Horowitz Parfums.
Ralph Lauren Ralph Rocks EDT - This is a milky orange scent that smells very “mainstream”, “abstract”, whatever word you choose to use. BUT it does have that theme of orange + cream and in this case it has some florals too. I’m not a snob and I’ll include ‘em all. The 1.7 oz bottle retails for under $50 and is available at Beauty.com.
ABL Brands Crush’d EDP – This EDP spray is an orange cream pop that turns into a blood orange toasted marshmallow. The tonka in this really adds something special. The 2 oz spray bottle retails for $52 at A Beautiful Life.
The Over $75
Esscentual Alchemy Orange Cream Perfume – If you want a botanical, natural perfume that smells like your favorite childhood treat, here it is! The citrus in this has dimension since it’s natural. The 5ml perfume retails for $75 at Esscentual Alchemy. Here’s my review.
By Kilian Sweet Redemption – This is the luxury orange creamsicle perfume. It’s a blend of heady orange blossom paired with a creamy vanilla. This is all over a very realistic myrrh incense. It retails for $225 for 1.7 oz. It’s available at Luckyscent.
Aura Candle in Cosmic – This is a fancy orange creamsicle in candle form. It has great throw and I love the scent. It smells so good! It retails for $26 at Candles Off Main.
CleanWell Orange Vanilla Hand Sanitizer – This is a natural, alcohol free hand sanitizer that kills germs with thyme. The scent is a yummy blend of vanilla and orange designed by Mandy Aftel of Aftelier. The spray hand sanitizer retails for under $4 at Drugstore.com.
John Masters Organics Blood Orange & Vanilla Body Milk – This moisturizing lotion with organic ingredients has a fruity, juicy citrus fragrance that is mellowed out by a rich, creamy vanilla. It layers with any of the perfumes mentioned in this guide. An 8 fl oz pump retails for $18 at Beauty.com.
That’s my guide as of summer 2012. If you know of any perfumes that smell like orange cream pops, please comment!
