Quite a unusual fragrance even for Comme des Garçons. The “green” part of Amazingreen’s name is certainly appropriate for a time, but I’m not convinced of the “Amazing” part. The green of the opening and heart seems a bit off to me because, instead of being the usual sharp or fresh green, it is an unexciting, dull green with a milky sap and coriander seed tinge. It becomes a little sharper with the introduction of a green pepper note. I don’t get any more green type notes because the fragrance very quickly loses strength. After about forty-five minutes, the weak green dominance is barely there and there’s a soft mineral somewhat smoky note left over – the gunpowder accord, I suppose… it’s quite weak to my nose… I wish it were stronger…
I don’t find the “green” of this fragrance as enjoyable as the greens I’ve experienced in several other green scents – including a few other Comme des Garçons’ scents. I find the sillage and longevity rather weak. I just don’t get anything amazing out of Amazingreen.
I can't find anything about this fragrance I like. The overwhelming smell of 1970's car air freshener is just to much. Just way to overpowering with Top Notes...
A slightly more wearable take on the harsh green notes of Odeur 71 ("dust on a hot lightbulb" or however they put it).
One afternoon, on a "let's go smell perfume at Northpark Center" day, we found Amazingreen nestled among the other CdG offerings on the scent wall at Sephora. When we put the fragrance on the strip, my husband smelled first and then nailed it: "Fancy Christmas tree car air freshener!"
To me this is an ecstatically exiting green scent. The only problem is it does not last and gets close to the skin 5 minutes after application which, considering the price, is a blatant daylight robbery commited by CdG. They should have done better with what could have been the best green scent around.
Cheap Synthetic Mess from the Discount Planet
this was money thrown away, cheap and synthetic, was used to cut Shalimar for an intereswting metallic afterglow, the scent in itself is a total waste of money, ruining the overall perception of CdG!
Cons: synthetic to the bone!"
