I feel Selection Verte is a five star fragrance in both quality and simplicity. New flacons appear to be for sale at the Creed Boutique for reasonable prices given the quality. Anyone who like a good quality snappy summer citrus fragrance ought to try SV. Don't be fooled, Selection Verte is much more than a citrus eau de cologne--it utilized mint, sweat pea, and ambergris. The older, darker juice tends to be a tad deeper and more floral than the newer batches, but the new ones are still great. I like to think of SV as effervescent but with some substance in the heart and base.
