Omg the worst version of green tea interpretation EVER!. It smells nasty like the effect whisky has on your nose. I'm very happy that the spray nozzle broke so that I'm not tempted to finish the bottle up by using it as toilet spray because it is very long lasting. I bought it 5 years ago and it has taken it this long to get to 1 cm left in the bottle because me and my mum dislike it so much.
This is truly a beautiful fragrance. Very, very romantic. You can smell the green tea from the beginning to the end. Last long and it's remarkably beautiful.

Boring green tea again? when i first used elizabeth ardens's green tea i have enjoyed its freshness. But that was before a thousand green tea scents and popularization of the iced green tea drinks. Now if i have to choose a tea from L'Occitane, i would prefer her "white tea" sister instead.
I'd agree with the previous reviewer regarding this being a stronger scent than Bvlgari's rendition. To me this is the more citrusy and bright sibling of Bvlgari's slightly darker Green Tea, while being more potent. This may also have a good bit to do with the longer spray which I find to be a pros on L'Occitane products in general. While being bitter I do find this to be quite sweet, and used in moderation this can be quite nice. I do like the solid perfume version better as the top citrus notes on this actually lasts, which IMHO provides better balance.
Love this but my sister keeps taking my supplies. Its the only perfume she wears. Bitter not sweet, clean, fresh, cool for an Australian summer, uplifting. Lasts longer and stronger than Bulgari's Au The Vert.
