I am tea junkie and I love flavored teas. I get drawn to anything and everything with tea in it and it was how I landed on this perfume.I prefer Solid perfumes for travel or carrying in purse because the bottle ones are quite heavy and they are prone to breakage as it is made of glass.
Read my review on THE VERT GREEN TEA SOLID PERFUME from L’Occitane en Provence.
This solid perfume without alcohol perfumes the skin with the fresh, luminous and floral fragrance of Green Tea with Jasmine.
PRICE: Rs 600 for 10 ml
MY TAKE ON THE PRODUCT:
The product comes in a tiny tin similar to some lip balms and has a pull off lid. The lid gets struck often and I have to fight with this tiny thing to open it.
The colour of the perfume is dirty white like wax and it looks like Vaseline. It have slight hint of green shade to it which is almost invisible (Yellowish Green).It has a light texture and it gets absorbed quickly. It didn’t give any irritations or any burning sensation on application.
It smells sweet with green tea and citrus yet the scent is herbal-like. I’ll always feel refreshed while using this. The smell is mild and very therapeutic to the senses and I find it very comforting. I love this fragrance but you won’t get that “Fresh” feel after using this tough.
The longevity is less. I don’t find this perfume to be long lasting. It lasts upto 3 hours only.
- Travel friendly as it is portable
- Awesome fragrance
- Natural, gives a feeling of happiness, uplifting to the spirits
- Mild, light and perfect
- No irritations/burning
- Absorbed quickly
- Long lasting as you require tiny amount per use
- The scent fades pretty quickly
- Packaging could have been improved
- Finger application is unhygienic and I hate this thing going into my nails
This would be perfect for winters and you can use this after showers. I don’t think it will be good for summers coz you sweat a lot and the smell of this doesn’t last that long. If you are allergetic to strong smells, this will be the best for you.
FINAL WORD: I love the scent and I carry this in my purse and use it for touch ups.I love how simple and perfect this perfume is.
I ended up buying an expired product from a sale (Got refund tough) and I didn’t know it until I took snaps for this review. Have used it thrice. Now it goes straight away to the bin. I heard that this version of perfume is discontinued and the same one is reformulated and launched with bitter orange notes.
I will be purchasing the Elizabeth Arden Green Tea EDT or the same L’Occitane en Provence one in cherry blossom soon.
