Reviews of Eden

Eden smells like a beautiful green garden full of exotic flowers in the spring. A divine, mystical garden, with a burning incense container. It's very strong but not "suffocating".

I purchased Eden last fall, thinking I would like it. I just couldn't figure this fragrance out: it's strange, I'll certainly give it that, but I couldn't associate anything garden-like, or natural, with it's composition. I realized I was taking the whole garden theme to literally, and so I let fantasy be the interpreter for what I was smelling. Eden is all fantasy. Even the ads for it evokes fantasy: Vibrantly colored, and a bit hallucinatory.

As much as I try to appreciate Eden, I just can't seem to wear it. It's too much. I've tried spraying and walking through, as well as dabbing it on, and nothing seems to help with reeling it in a bit. It's ALL Eden, or nothing....no matter what.

I can't help but draw comparisons to Kenzo's Ca Sent Beau - this has the same synthetic, never-ending citrus. Eden is greener, and I'd say more well-behaved, but they both clearly have some ingredients in common.

That being said, I like it, but I don't love it (like I do the bottle - beautiful). It has the problem of being fruity-citrusy, but never letting up. Other examples of this issue happen with Guerlain's Pamplelune, and Atelier's citrus offerings. For me, citrus is what I want to smell for 15 minutes, and then move on. These creatures want that feeling to last for hours, but because of this it becomes very tiresome.

This is not subtle!

It is so many things to so many reviewers, but the one thing it is not is subtle.

Old-fashioned strong and long-lasting (the Lutens type of strength), this is for me a sweet, cold, minty green, fruity floral. That's its problem, it tries to be too many things at once.

It is original. I will give it that. Barbara Herman thought it a "big gourmand oriental." She noted a sour plastic herbal note that for her predominated. I do not find this note, lucky for me.

I put this in the scent type usually referred derogatorily as "old lady," over-powering, sweet, floral onslaught - "you can smell her from the lobby when she's still in her taxi at the curb."

Herman's note file is different from Basenotes:

Top: Bergamot, Lemon, Mandarin, Peach, Tarragon, Neroli
Middle: Tuberose, Jasmine, Muguet, Rose, Ylang Ylang, Orris
Base: Cedar, Patchouli, Sandalwood, Musk, Moss, Vanilla, Tonka, Amber

Turin called it "wet cashmere" and gave it 4 stars, typing it as "sweet green."

The thing I like most about it is the minty green coldness of it. It's refreshing on a hot day, but a little bit goes a long way, as you can well imagine.

I can't give it a thumbs up, because it is just too overdone for my tastes, but it is certainly well done for its type of sweet over the top floral melange.

Genre: Green Floral

Eden displays an extremely distinctive sweet, spicy, green floral character right from the get-go. Eden expands dramatically as it ages, throwing off a cloud of ever-sweetening sillage for several feet around the wearer. Smooth woods and powder reveal themselves under the sweet florals, and these establish a plush, wooly texture that comes to dominate the entire olfactory experience.

In the succeeding hours Eden’s sweetness and matte finish yield an oddly bland, pudding-like texture that I find tiresome upon exposure – very much like eating too much cookie batter. The first couple of mouthfuls are great fun but by the tenth I’d rather suck a lemon. As the florals drop out Eden’s sweetness takes on a syrupy or dried fruit character and a chemical edge that leave a hollow, artificially flavored candy feel to the powdery drydown.

A day spent with Eden leaves me thinking it loud and unpalatable, yet at the same time oddly insipid. I feel that if a fragrance is going to shout, it might as well shout something interesting, like Fracas, Knize Ten, Black Aoud, or Havana, and not the kind of bland, sugary static that Eden has to offer.

A special scent it is for sure... Although sometimes it smells sweet and some other times sour, very confusing. Other people I asked for opinions were just as divided. I think it is clearly a summer scent as the heat brings out the sweeter side as I noticed... I wear it occasionally - but don't always enjoy the duality - between me and myself I call it "the Heisenberg scent" because of the uncertainty... LOL
