Reviews of Eau d'Orange Verte

Such a shame.

This smells beautiful - as often commented a holographic green orange tree smell, however on me this dries down to a skin scent and then vanishes altogether in less than 20 minutes.

Mine, is a vintage bottle of eau de cologne. It is a marvelous aromatic. Crisp, bright, and luscious citruses. Fun notes of mint and basil. Lavender that is just enough that it doesn't kill me. Lovely, earthy oakmoss on the bottom. This is one of those that, the more I wear it, the more I enjoy it.

I don't know why but this seems to offer me only a few minutes of scent: some hesperedic notes, a hint of blackcurrent leaves, a bit of oakmoss and then it's gone. Very fresh but that kind of evanescence makes this a poor value proposition.

I get a lot of anise in the opening. Then it settles like an eau de cologne, but it's sweeter, spicier, with some mint. Fruity! But it quickly dries down to a sweat smell and then it disappears.

A nice dominant orange open with a nice quality oakmoss/patchouli drydown. Top notch from the house of Hermes. I find the orange to be a little tart in the opening due to the lemon which IMO gives it WAY more character. Decent longevity and projection in the warmer days and nights than your typical Eau de Cologne. A winner in every respect. Enjoy!
