green gourmand
Balmya is the only scent I've ever thought of as a green gourmand. And, while that sounds disgusting, it is really quite pretty. For the first couple of hours on me, it has a pleasantly sappy-green-leaf note faintly similar to Miller et Bertaux green, green, green. It's not quite verbena, because it's not lemony, but it has that same sense of a bright green plant leaf crushed between your fingers. That note is combined with a sweet coffee note, like a shot of espresso with a couple of tablespoons of sugar in it.

Over time, the green takes a back seat to a soft woody vanilla. At this point, I think a bit of Comptoir Sud Pacifique's Vanille Mokha, though I find Balmya much less cloying. The fruits that are listed don't register distinctly with me, so it doesn't seem to be in fruity-floral land. (Though the bottle, which I consider ugly, looks like it contains a fruity-floral.)

Balmya is a refined, pretty scent available for a bargain price at the US online discounters. I'm happy to have made its acquaintance!
