Top: Neroli, Bergamot
Middle: Orange Blossom
Base: Ylang Ylang, Musk
HOW IT WEARS
Neroli Oranger opens with a fresh, juicy citrus note which after a while fades to allow the clean and bright white floral to come into bloom. It is simple, realistic and best of all for a fragrance like this – actually lasts. It hangs around for a good 8 hours, and the unexpected whiffs you get throughout the day will be sure to bring a smile to your face.
We love the pure, angelic quality of Neroli Oranger – the neroli is so true it immediately transports you to a lush orchard full of orange trees. Its rich, citrusy oiliness is balanced perfectly with bright sparkling greenness, showcasing the white florals without being too sweet. If you are a Neroli lover, it would be hard to go past this fragrance.
ABOUT THE BRAND
Debuted in 2019, Matiere Premiere (or “Raw Materials” in French) is the work of renowned nose and master perfumer, Aurélien Guichard.
The core objective of the Matiere Premiere range is to put a spotlight on some of the most precious fragrance materials from around the world, and to hero the beauty and elegance of a single note fragrance.
A 7th generation perfumer born in Grasse (arguably the perfume capital of the world), Aurélien Guichard has a passion for fragrance running through his veins. He has been the nose behind nearly one hundred fragrances and has worked with brands such as Givenchy, Narcisco Rodriguez, Gucci and Commes de Garcons.

“Growing our own rose is a way to reconnect with the essence of the work of a perfumer – creating the fragrance itself, but also supervising the quality and production methods of the raw material” – Aurélien Guichard.
Matiere Premiere is all about honouring the beauty and sophistication that lies in simplicity – one raw material can contain a plethora of olfactory facets ripe for exploration and interpretation.
