Reviews of Fath's Essentials : Green Water

Genre: Edwards says Fougère, I say Citrus (you say “po-TAH-toh”)

This is not your father’s (or mother’s) Green Water. I remember the skimpy, impoverished, green chemical compound that used to go by this name, and this is NOT it. In fact, this delightful reissue is the work of no lesser light than Cecile Zarokian, and stands as a fine testament to her talent.

The green juice in this bottle smells exactly like it looks: a brisk, yet nuanced eau de Cologne-type formula invigorated by a marvelously savory tarragon and mint top note and extended in the base by a lovely neroli. “Extended” must be taken in context here - the new Green Water is good for about two hours, max. (There’s a reason they’re selling the stuff in a ten gallon can.) As much as some may be put off by the limited lasting power, I have to wonder how much of this scent’s natural-smelling appeal would have been sacrificed to the kind of clean synthetic musks that might have increased its tenacity. Me, I’ll go with Zarokian’s call, and re-apply liberally.

What a beautiful fragrance Cecile Zarokian has resurrected from the fragrance graveyard in this very green and complex totally different version of Green Water. I have a history with Green Water from the 1980's and '90's. I had two bottles back to back of the super green mint juice from the old green plastic bottle. The first one was very green herbal citrus vetiver with a sweet mint note. The second was much bolder on the mint and the green lost its complexity. So it went out of favor and was discontinued but last year Ms. Zarokian was brought in to recreate the magic of the concept of the original. There is absolutely nothing to complain about in this even better than before Green Water. First of all the bottle is fantastic. It's a huge magnetic capped pillar that holds 200 ml. of the new bright green water. Interesting that the bottle looks very much like the Dior Collection Privee bottles - same size, same shape, similar magnetic cap and the vetiver scent in the minted herbal Green Water has the same woody bright green dry vetiver that Dior Privee Vetiver uses. The aroma is green and mint with shades of camphor or menthol. I am sure some of the mint may also come from the herbal mix of basil, tarragon, and caraway. The opening is an agreeable lemon orange that has a dry woody musk second note before settling into bright green vetiver, minty herbs and amber base. Quite an improvement for Green Water and definitely the best version ever. Well done!
