Reviews of Verveine / Verbena

Probably my favorite L'Occitane scent! It's so versatile and my go-to scent for when I want to feel "clean and fresh". I don't really like "shower fresh" types of fragrances that are popular during the summer months. L'Occtaine's Verbena is more of a botanical "garden fresh" smell that's perfect for layering with other citrus scents. Reminds me of relaxing in the garden during summer vacation. Doesn't have great staying power, but works well when reinforced with other Verbena products.

It might be a L'Occitane's classic but it doesn't live up to its price and fame.
It literally lasts 15 min without any projection, it's not like a cologne that doesn't have that much of projection but if you sniff your arm you'll smell it, it simply vanishes within minutes.
Its longevity is the same as their Verbena soap or shower gel, actually the shower gel lasts longer than this cologne (that should be called "refreshing brume" not and edt or edc).
It smells citric and fresh but it has the worst staying power I've ever seen. They should reformulate it with at least more staying power.

L'Occitane Verveine is dignified fizzy-green fresh lemony aroma (somewhat old-school eau de cologne like) so optimistic and aromatic. Somewhat linear (not that sort of evolution) but honest and straightforward. In particular I detect basil, a really sharp geranium spark (virile and sophisticated) and a stout hesperidic approach (lime, bergamot). Verbena is for sure lingering and enhancing the greenish aromatic general atmosphere. The "synthetic" is not beyond the limit of tolerance. A beautiful classic in style "cologne".

Lemon barley sugar was my first impression. However this rich and pleasant interpretation of verbena grew on me (the alcoholic extrait version at least, the fragrance of the shower gel is not so interesting). As noted below, it is excellent as a room freshener too.

No problems, just a basic scent.
Very green lemon. Refreshing. Hints of a the classic verbena (basil, lemon, warm bread) but could be developed more.
Simple.

Wonderful bitter lime-like Verbena freshness, straight forward and without sweetness. Gone after about an hour and really a refreshing summer EdC splash, especially when used with the bath products.
