    I liked Red the least, and Black and Green were very simple IMO. Vote goes to Black however.

    So far the feedback has been less than stellar for all three of these. I love CdG but the "play" series seems disappointing

    Well, this is the first I've seen which gives information that the colour-coded scents are different, and appropriate to each colour. Many thanks for this info.

    I have tried them all, and I own the Original and the Green.
    While the Green is far superior to the other two in the 'series,' the Original Play from 2007 is far superior to anything in the relatively sketchy 'Play series.'

    Probably green but none are worth owning. Still need to review green.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    I'm a huge CDG fan but this series is a bit underwhelming. They actually all smell quite nice but they're way too far from being standouts in the house' huge range. That said the original Play is still my favorite among the Plays.

    I actually really like Green...I bought it so I better. The mint is quite prominent, which is something that I like. It's got an herby vibe to it, and on my skin it lasts all day. It's a light frag and stays close to skin (also how I like it) but lasts and lasts.

    I don't know any of these but would like to know all. Actually, all Comme des Garçons.
