Orient comes from a word meaning ‘East’. The question is, East of where? In this case, France, where the perfume genre was born.

China and Iran have little in common except their East-ness from Europe.

It does seem time to update language but good luck! There are terms, as Sanchez says, that are more descriptive and clear in what they mean.
Good luck is right…people have been saying (accurately) that it’s not a good term for years.
