Reviews of Jade

Clean green tea,mint and anise top notes. But I get a hint of bug spray...possibly citronella? I couldn't wear it b/c of the citronella. I get no smoke which may have saved it.

It has a green smoky scent. I'm not sure if it can be affiliated with Jade, but it's deep and dark smell certainly illustrates a mysterious image...something possibly related to absolute power!

In the world of perfumes, it is reminiscent of Esencia pour Homme by Loewe to me. Although this one is more modern, Esencia smells better.

Had good longevity and projection. Overall: 7 out of 10.

This is a nice scent: aromatic, quite green. It starts with a herbal and green-tea note which is appealing. Somewhat dark in character and a bit spicy. Substantial and not heavy. It is rather mysterious and evocative, suggesting a mossy pond in a cool forest or the intense damp green plant notes of a tropical conservatory. The dry-down gets more mossy, with a smoky-grassy note from the mate and a dusky-sweet note from the immortelle.

Green tea oakmoss cassia holly mint jasmine and i can pick up menthol intoxicates the cerebral senses into a
vision of a pagoda a top the highest
plain of heaven inside are the purest
and the most flawless Jades beautiful
golden Buddhist statues side by side
a long carpet of baltik tapistry rolls
in a long distance and suddenly startled by fearful Wrathful Faces with bulging eyes of a Bodhisattva continue
walking your smelling incense so you
turn your head and discover a ball of
incense next to you and it generates into a Dragon in the dragon claws a cloudy ball he summoms you to listion
as the dragon reveals esoteric knowledge in the cloudy ball that no mortal can decipher only a chosen few
can share his secrets.

This comes to show you that this is a one of a kind scent there will be imatators but nothing can live up
to it's name

I smell a deep, dark twisted tea and tar. Very unusual and smells medicinal. I'm not discounting the scent because of that but I know I don't like the heavy tea in this. I can't be too eloquent on this.

Jade fills a gap in my scent wardrobe - it doesn't really smell like any other perfume. The scent is almost as green as the coloured juice itself - green tea, mate, a soft cut grass accord, a tartly fruity touch of green apple (of course, there's none listed), hints of anise and mint. It's not green in a rustic way though, if you know what I mean, not blatantly herbal or vegetal. It's a polished green, yes, quite like a gem - refreshing yet abstractly elegant. There's no incense listed, yet I could swear the green notes rested on a similar incense base as Durbano's other compositions. Maybe it's just the dry and smoky effect of the tea notes. Like I said, it doesn't smell like anything else, but the scent most closely related to it that I've smelt is, I think, Annick Goutal's Duel, which also has mate and which is in a similar genre of "refined refreshment". Jade gets a neutral thumb because much as I admire it I don't exactly love it.
