I actually love this scent which smells amazingly like Diorella or Eau Sauvage. In fact, I use the bath gel & lotion with Diorella for extended longevity of that fragrance. This has a fresh green herbal accord with just a bit of sweetness.
Captivating beginning with such an excellent aroma: Clean fresh citrus notes with just the right touch of galbanum to tint it little green… an aromatic, clear, fresh, and long-lasting citrus / touch of green… This is one of the more pristine citrus openings I’ve encountered. The top holds for a very long time for a citrus, seamlessly transforming into the lightly floral / lightly spicy heart. The heart floral is a bouquet accord – I can’t identify a particular note, except water lily, which I always find because it’s uniqueness. Although orchid and violet are listed, I don’t have an adverse reaction to them, as I usually do. In all, the heart of Chypre Green is an excellently presented unisex floral / spice at, but I find it just a bit on the boring side. Like the opening, the middle has quite good lasting power. The dry down is a discreet, smooth sandalwood and musk – quite pleasing and comfortable and with the best lasting power I’ve seen in a Pecksniff’s fragrance.
Chypre Green presents a very attractive aromatic package, and although I’ve found several Pecksniff’s fragrances to be excellent in respect to the high quality of their accords, this is the first one I’ve found from this company that has very good longevity. I feel good about giving Pecksniff’s Chypre Green a thumbs up without a caveat. Oh, and forget the feminine designation… it is definitely unisex…
I love this one. Though it says it is for women, it seems more unisex to me (I use it all the time). Reminds me of Creed's Bois de Cedrat, this one is bright, green, distinctive, and crisp, with excellent lasting power (unlike the Creed). Best of all, it isn't something that you'll find everyday and you won't have to worry about ten other people wearing the same scent when you go out.
