    Eau de Gentiane Blanche by Hermès

    A very simple, direct, fresh, green scent, soft but dry. Opens with fresh green notes with a slight herbal edge, then settles into the heart which is dominated by the plant-ichor intensity of violet leaf, a dab of neroli, and not much else. Drydown fades this green accord gradually with the slightest glow of musk to warm it. Sillage is almost nonexistant and persistance is not too great either. But this smells very fresh and pleasant. Definitely not complex or bitter enough for me to wear regularly. EdGB has none of the synthetic fanfare of some traditional colognes, and I like that.
