    I wonder if grapefruit has the same effect. Don't eat oranges that often.

    Yes, It reminds me of summer! Probably because when I was on a vacation in North Carolina, I treated myself to Australian Gold suntan/sunblock which smells like oranges. At the time, this product was a lot cheaper in the States than in Canada.
