    This gets a neutral because (for me) it is just ok, not compelling. And because it does not seem at all green to me.

    Citrus/pepper and wood/incense quickly appear, pretty much simultaneously. A bit smoky once in while, but only a bit. It is a pleasant woody-incense scent, though in my opinion not green in any sense. So the name "Silvan" refers to a woody forest, not a green forest. The scent is very mild and restrained -- light incense, light pepper. Nothing to offend here, but nothing particularly new or striking. A good, basic scent. And some may not want anything more powerful, so for those I say check it out.

    Top Notes: Grapefruit, Juniper berry, Pepper
    Middle Notes: Incense, Guaiac wood
    Base Notes: Cedarwood, Musk, Patchouli

    I felt it was time to try this scent again. Once again, I wind up damning with faint praise. And here, faint is an appropriate term since the scent overall is rather faint. There are pleasant wood notes, and if I apply generously I imagine some incense. I am sensitive to scent, so if I call something "faint" then it really must be the case. I looked at the BN reviews. There are 4 to date, and they are all neutral. The consensus is that a niche scent should be more distinctive and interesting. Seems to have been a failure of nerve with the RBR designers. But, do try a sample if you can. As I say, there is nothing wrong with this scent and it may work better for some.
