Rarely has there been in my such a summery, fresh and uplifting citrus blast experience as the opening of Eau d'Orange Verte. Orange and lemon galore, with
whiffs of mint at times. A very realistic bitter orange indeed.
The drydown is fruitier in nature, with unripe mango vying with hints of papaya and touches of starfruit for one's attention. a fresh green is in the background throughout.
The base displays a soft and bright patchouli note, a nonspecific woodsy tone and a perfunctory mossy impression towards the end.
I get moderate sillage, good projection and a 'short'evity of two hours on my skin.
A classic summer citrus Eau de Cologne, with the typically short longevity expected from such a citrus-based cologne. A bit simple at times, and the base is disappointingly bland for some stretches, but in spite of its the weaker base is it a great summer pick-me-up. 3.5/5
