There isn't really a lot of difference in travelling times from either airport but I'd definitely pick Orly.

CDG is a nightmare to get out of with crowds everywhere, at immigration and notably by the lifts you need to use. And worse I'm sure I've seen "SS" insignia on the customs officers there.

Orly is smaller, friendlier and without the crowds. I found it a lot easier.

Actually, until just a few years ago, Orly was a busier airport in terms of traffic than CDG. Now it is calming down (mostly because it is in a more heavily populated area and has to deal with many more noise retrictions -- including closing at 11 p.m.).
