Reviews of Silent Grove

Grass and linden – evocative of sunshine and the outdoors – translated into a perfume that is equal parts lime-scented hand soap and peppy room freshener. Somehow, this is not a bad thing, instead even a little addictive. Silent Grove has the underlying synthetic sweetness of such products and even when the composition goes a bit woody and smoky in the drydown that aromachemical aura is hard to deny. Still, a bit like popping candy, it has sparkle and fizz and suits occasional use.

The opening blast is fresh and summery, fairly bright but is not one of these ultra-fresh citrus scents like Eau d' Orange Verte from Hermès, Monsieur Balmain or Creed's Bois de Cédrat. The citrus is mainly lemon, but there is some petitgrain in the background. A woodsy component with a slightly minty undertone accompanies the citrus in top notes.

The drydown loses this freshness gradually, and a light note odd white tea, linden and a with floral undertone dominate the later stages. The base is the most nondescript part, but even then the white musky impression in the base is quite acceptable.

I get moderate sillage, adequate projection and seven hours of longevity on my skin.

A discrete summery composition, this fragrance Is very pleasant and the quality of the mainly natural ingredients is convincing. It is a bit discrete and not very loud, so a great office scent that has a few creative touches too. 3/5.

I wasn't even aware this was listed as a feminine fragrance. I've been wearing it all day and it seems very much like it could be worn by a man or a woman to me. The opening seemed completely lime and smelled a lot like West Indian Lime Cologne by Crabtree and Evelyn. I'm assuming the tea and linden notes are the other elements I'm smelling in the dry down. This is overall a pleasant fragrance, but not one I'd invest the money in for a bottle. As mentioned, it is pricey, and there are other less expensive frags that pull off a similar performance. Longevity wasn't that great, nor was sillage. I had to reapply a couple of times, so I'm wavering between a thumbs up and a neutral rating. I'll go with thumbs up because I did enjoy the scent while it lasted.

D.S. & Durga's Silent Grove is surely the greenest offering of theirs that I've tried, and it certainly hits on the notes of cedar, tea, and grass. It has a minty quality to it, as well, perhaps due to the sharpness of the grass, or the lime blossom, with which I am unfamiliar.

While described as a feminine perfume, Silent Grove is unisex enough to work for men, and probably has all-season versatility as well. Longevity and projection are decent, but I again find the D.S. & Durga price tag a bit much, even though their fragrances consistently smell natural.

Slight thumbs up for this. Pleasant, somewhat green, a bit sweet but not oppressive. The tea note and the linden notes are well done. As the scent develops and the wood becomes a bit more prominent, I also get a faint smoky note. A guy could wear this, easily.
