My initial impression is green, green, green -- broken leaves and stems -- and lily, with musk as an obvious undercurrent even at the opening. Unfortunately for me, this does not develop further, except that the musk -- my least favorite note -- becomes more prominent. This is a common problem for me: any hint of musk predominates, when I would much prefer a further unfolding of the green and floral notes. Sillage is moderate, as is longevity.
Decou-vert appears to be made from high-quality ingredients, but it lacks the architecture of Chanel No. 19 and other iconic green scents. It becomes an increasingly soft, blurred green musky floral, perfectly acceptable for spring/summer wear, but unremarkable in the end.
Green and fresh without being citrusy. It's perfect for really (i mean over 40°c) hot summer days and the drydown is cozy after sunset.
The flowery notes are undemanding and pleasantly lingering.
It might not smell unique at first but I rarely found such a fresh and comforting scent to wear.
A dive into a green garden, where you can sniff the early blooms during the day and relax among scented woods at night.
This was a gift from my fiancee, blind buy, an easy one thanks to the armony of Décou-vert bouquet.
Longevity is good (but i do not expect much from this kind of scents).
8/10 (kudos for its standing the sultry weather of Milanese summer)
Beautiful scent, really bright, clean, fresh, well-crafted and balanced. An invigorating and sunny floral start, much "white" in fact, which slowly opens up to a luminous and elegant drydown. Plenty of other scents more or less similar to this one, but still it's nice.
