I think they were talking about Untitled. Sounds like I need to check out both, though.

I have no doubt!  Be forewarned that L'Eau might be limited edition.

I also love orange and 2 of my favorites are Fendi Theorema...a warm, spicy orange nice for fall/winter.Top notes are nutmeg, orange blossom, pepper, jasmine, lemon, brazilian rosewood, cardamom and rose hip; middle notes are carnation, cinnamon, osmanthus, ylang-ylang, rose and spices; base notes are siam benzoin, guaiac wood, sandalwood, amber and patchouli.

I also enjoy Hermes Eau des Merveilles, a warm, woody, salty orange. It's very distinctive!

Those both sound lovely, Cathy. I'd heard of the Hermes one, but not the Fendi scent.

I love the "salty orange" description of Eau des Merveilles. Must check out!

Mmm...spicy orange for fall sounds yummy!  I have Pacifica Sandalwood, which has prominent orange notes.  It feels right in this transitional season.
