Green but not astringent. There is sweetness that I couldn't place until I picked some tulips from my garden - it was tulip!
NOt long-lived sorry to say.
This one puts me at a disadvantage because with most of the other Demeters, I’ve had some acquaintance with the object(s) that the fragrance names. Unfortunately I’ve never been to New Zealand, but I’m thrilled to think that now I will have to travel there just to see if this fragrance is accurate.
The fragrance mainly smells of green, lots of green – sharp, strong, mostly unidentified green, but there is an identifiable grass smell in it – I’m not so sure of what the other greens are. I get some earth in there and I get leaves and bark from trees. So, New Zealand is a place of grass, dirt, and trees…. hmmm… imagine that!
I think it smells quite masculine. It’s an okay scent.
90% of the way to being New Zealand. It reminds me of wet grass, ferns, moss, moist earth, dark cool forests.... but there's also a hint of the sea, and something a bit more sharp and icy that suggests snowy mountain peaks. Relatively short lived.
A fresh air aroma. Very fresh and light. Scent of a just cut grass in the morning. Also reminds of wet forest bush in summertime. It has something in common with Comme des Garcons' ODEUR 53 but sounds VERY natural. Seen that forest in "Lord of the Rings".
