Reviews of Thé Vert / Green Tea (original)

I didn't like the opening. It was strong in orange at first. Citrus, sweet, this is not what I expected for a green tea scent. The drydown is much better. The tea and the jasmin is calming and comforting. Unfortunately citrus notes still linger somewhere around. I wish it could be bitterer like White Tea by l'Occitane. It's still a lovely fragrance, green and fresh, inoffensive and suitable for many occasions, unisex as well. But it just doesn't fit the image of green tea for me. It's some sort of fruit tea IMHO.

I also have White Tea by l'Occitane and I prefer the scent of White Tea. But Green Tea lasts longer and its sillage is better.

Citrusy green tea with soft jasmine, and a deep woodsy base. It's fresh and delicious.. It feels crisp & cool, making it the perfect scent for summer. A clean, unoffensive scent, and has almost a medicinal or sterile quality. In a good way.

A refreshing and true green tea fragrance that is as strong as a tea fragrance can be, which is not very strong. Tea is gifted the way it has a maximum degree of pungency that it cannot surpass, and that degree is very comfortable to most noses. The citrus opening is nice but I wait for my fix, the tea, to kick in after a few minutes. The dry down is a bit woodsy and obviously masculine to my nose.

Just wish it came in EDP strength. Still highly recommended.

Outstanding summer fragrance. Reminds me a bit of Eau Sauvage up top. Notes are green tea, bitter orange, jasmine, cedar and thyme. The opening is a citrus, green tea and jasmine blend that oozes summer. As The Vert develops, a beautiful jasmine note takes center stage well into the mid notes, eventually dropping back behind the green tea centerpiece of this fragrance. The dry down is very nice, less floral and a hint of herbs. I don't detect any cedar, even though it is listed in the notes. The Vert is an outstanding unisex fragrance. Longevity is average. Recommended for summer wear.

On me this is a sharp and penetrating, clean, aromatic. Clear, refreshing, perfect for a hot, sultry day. Happily not sweet. Much stronger and more long lasting than the Bulgari tea range which all fade after half an hour. Just bought my third bottle. Its difficult to imagine a summer without it.

This is a great scent for summer (i.e. hot weather). It's a very light green tea scent that's definitely unisex. Longevity is so-so, but it's relatively inexpensive, as are all the L'Occitane fragrances.
