It’s very rare for me to encounter a citrus perfume that impresses me. I’m just not a “citrus perfume person”. I can see why people like them, but I’m not drawn to them. Ramon Mongal Entre Naranjos is one of those few citrus perfumes that impresses me.
Entre Naranjos opens as a bright orange with a hint of black licorice. It’s a bitter, green citrus with vibrancy. The heart is a green petitgarin and “candied” orange blossoms over an astringent cedar – think of this heart as the orange tree. There’s leaves, bark and blossoms. The dry-down is fresh musks and woods. This dry-down isn’t that impressive but it does give the citrus and delicate florals something to clutch.
So why do I like Entre Naranjos? I like it because it is a citrus with some weight. It’s not vapid. And I also like the bitter sweetness in it.
Notes listed include Tunisian orange flower, orange, petitgrain, neroli, amber and Indonesian patchouli. Launch date 2010.
Give Entre Naranjos a try if you are looking for a really good orange fragrance. Or if you like perfumes like Atelier Cologne Orange Sanguine, Odin 02 Owari, Cartier Eau de Cartier Essence d’Orange and/or Pacifica Tuscan Blood Orange solid perfume. It’s unisex. And I think it’s a good choice for “every day” wear.
For a citrus, Entre Naranjos has above average projection and longevity. It really sticks on my skin and I get 7+ hours…for a citrus!
The 1.7 oz bottle retails for $185 at Beautyhabit. Samples are also available for purchase.
Victoria’s Final EauPINION – Long-wearing citrus/orange. I like it but I rarely wear citrus perfumes. If you love citrus, this may be a worthwhile “investment” for you.
