Green punch
I need to spend more than just a word for this other masterpiece, creation of one of the best Master perfumers in the whole world.
When this fragrance was launched, there weren't many tea-centred fragrances around. I cannot recall one to be honest.

Needless to say, that summer Bvlgari took the market by storm and in Italy every woman literally showered in it - quite understandly I'd dare say. We have some 40C+ days that roast us in Italy, some years as early as June, and sweating is never an option for us as we like to be presentable at all times.
In fact, even going to buy bread at the bakery you would see ladies and gentlemen all dressed and done up... I know, vain but that's the hedonistic side of Italian people, whom grow surrounded by eternal beauty and art. We love "la dolce vita", it's all about that, the sun, food, and indulging surrounded by beauty :-) who wouldn't like it? LOL!

For those that have not yet visited Italy, during summer one would think to have landed by mistake in Africa or India: it is that hot. In case you plan to go, know that if you don't like roasting heat and humidity you gotta either go to the seaside to spend the whole vacation in the waters, or visit early May - late September. Not kidding: the heat and humidity will otherwise have your blood pressure fall below the ground.

This fantastic number provides a blast of uplifting freshness, the bergamot a punch of energy that well counter matches the scorcing light, and temperatures. It has an incredible balance, with at bitter kick from the tea, definitely green. Fairly, I cannot say I did detect the other notes, other than some ghostly light floral and lemon whiff. My first bottle was purchased therefore during a record hot summer, just right before I took a sailing trip. It marked olfactorily quite possibly my best summer ever.

On the boat, we took off from Piombino heading to Isola d'Elba, and from there we intended to reach Ajaccio, passing the "bocche di Bonifacio" on return. What can I say: sailing burns your skin, because the splashes of salty water reach as high as the dock where one would stand, and both wind and sun take part in eroding every inch of uncovered skin, slowly as implacably. After 15 hours with the wind whooshing in your ears and the sun heating your skul under the hat, this eau "parfumee" provided a much desired rest from the suffering, keeping me sane though on the balance of a heat stroke! Its calming and envigorating notes had me and our skipper working happily the whole night shift, whilst everyone else slept :)

Worth to note that eau "perfumee" translates in Italian as acqua profumata, which means cologne. So goes by itself that it never had the lasting power of a parfum, but boys, what a kick for a few hours! When I sprayed it, the whole crew, also those very far from me, would smell it despite the wind. And loved it!

Back to the olfactive memory this fragrance left me with, it was not just related to the fantastic combo of notes. That night, I saw half the sky as if being pulled down on one side of the horizon, whilst the daylight rose up on the other. It was surreal to see stars and a sickle moon on my right, falling over the edge of the horizon, and the sun with golden pink and orange colours coming up on my left. The most incredible thing ever, until hundreds - and I mean it - of dolphins approached very silently our boat, which by now was gliding as silent on calm waters some 1 hour away from the coast. Magical, and in all that magic I had up my nostrils the salt of the air, the heat coming stronger by the minute on my arms, and this magnificent scent whiffing gently off my tired skin.

I cannot fail Bvlgari for having decided to produce this just as a cologne.
Dreams cannot and should not last forever: their ephemeral nature is what makes them more beautiful then reality, and the memory of them and their possile return is what enriches us eternally. This is how I feel about Eau perfumee au The' vert. I seek it to bring back one of them most intense and beautiful day of my whole life.

Thanks Monsieur Jean-Claude Ellena for succeeding in bringing to life my perfect Midsummer Night's Dream! For me, worth a blind buy no doubt about it.

The magic of the moment...
I thought autumn would ring in quietly.
But then, then suddenly he was there.

Suddenly.
Unstoppable.
Full of natural forces.

I thought it was an unpleasant feeling to feel this cold But against expectation I step outside and find nature in beautiful green and colorful rainy leaves.

But the green of the meadows is still so lush that I can almost recall the freshness of dew.

So calming Soothing So liberating.

I didn't think a quick moment of refreshment was worth it But then I realize over and over again how beautiful this refreshment is.

And in the middle of all that green, I smell in some flowers, only I don't know which ones... But they're so beautiful in the middle of all this green that I'm almost caught in this scent moment

Addendum to the fragrance:
Unfortunately the scent is very fleeting. Like a beautiful moment. But it is so beautiful that it is definitely worth a test. I would classify it as unisex, because the floridity is minimal and the green freshness predominates. If you should spray it, I strongly recommend to spray it on your clothes to be able to perceive this infinitely beautiful note longer. Maybe the next day as well.

EPILOG:
"Autumn shows us how beautiful it is to let things go." - unknown

Five colours: Green
I don't really like green tea (for drinking) very much, I don't have any references to the brand Bulgari and the bottle and the name of the fragrance wouldn't have tempted me to test it. But I put (probably because of an inspired comment here) sometime once the sister smell blue on my noticing list and then entered a few days ago the Bulgari boutique at the citizens of Berlin Kurfürstendamm, in order to test these - one can read my experiences there in the Blog ?Berliner Duftspaziergänge Teil 6? if one has desire for it
There I learned that Bulgaris cologne series "Eau Parfumée au Thé..."five colours include: white, green, black, red and blue; that each of the five fragrances was commissioned from a different perfumer; that two of the fragrances are continued and three are discontinued in the near future (unfortunately, I haven't exactly remembered which, green is not discontinued, blue already) and that one or even more of the fragrances from this series are used by large hotel chains or airlines as corporate identity signature fragrances
"White" got a statement; for "green" it's enough for a short comment: Without looking at the pyramid beforehand I could easily (and without waiting for a course) recognize the triad of green tea, bergamot (I would also have thought a different citric note, e.g. Neroli or Petitgrain, possible, but bergamot fits) and cardamom. From my point of view this triangle is the core of the fragrance, and as simple as that is, as beautiful (and quite independent) it seems to me. The cardamom note (which also sounds a bit musky) is quite compact and powerful for such a fine, discreet scent, at least with a strong dosage. It does not kill the fragrance, but it effectively prevents it from slipping into the trivial, too gentle and clean - it gives the fragrance the necessary tension and a barely perceptible hint of dirtiness.

I don't perceive pepper, beeswax and tonka as independent notes, but they are all highly plausible: pepper to intensify the tea freshness and beeswax and tonka for the creamy grounding. The woodruff like (and thus green, perhaps a wink of the eye of the perfumer, because he had the task of Bulgari to serve the color "green"!) of the Tonka fragrance was beautifully described by my foreword commentator Edda32 (and at the risk of being drawn to the obtrusive advertisement for my blog, I allow myself to refer to the relationship of Tonka and woodruff to my penultimate blog post).

The durability of this "with green tea perfumed water", as I would like to translate the name, is with me more than modest. In spite of seven spray shots, after 1-2 hours practically nothing can be guessed anymore. The unfortunate remains of the fragrance were nevertheless recognized by a dear colleague as "this Bulgari, whom my mother loves to wear" and assured that he shows a higher persistence in her mother's wife.

It remains to be added that I did not test "black" and "red"; "blue", which I had in my sights anyway, pleased me the most of the three tested, and also lasted much longer. Let's see, maybe I'll get a bottle of the remaining stock, if so, a comment will be sent later.

The very last postscript (for those who didn't recognize it themselves): The title of this commentary is meant as a tribute to Kieslowski's color trilogy; there "Blue" became the only box-office hit, but I liked "Red" and "White" at least as much.

Infusion galium odoratum
This is really a wonderful fragrance, but I perceive it differently and would describe it differently than most of you here.
I bought a miniature because I am looking for a new signature scent and am actually looking for something fresh, striking with flowers and statement, but feminine nevertheless. I found it, but I'll write another comment about it ;-)

First of all: Bvlgari The Vert is not suitable as a signature scent for me, it simply has too little sillage for that. Nevertheless, I like the scent very much. In my opinion it is suitable for cool, but sunny spring and autumn days.

Tea scents seemed to me to be the right direction for now. When I read about pepper, honey and tonka bean in Bvlgari The Vert, I became sensitive. I didn't want it to be as cool and fresh as Ardens Green Tea and I promised myself spice and sharpness, but also a little temperature, some sun.

The citrus-yellow top note from the bergamot flies away rather quickly, but leaves a delicate, peppery and fresh memory in the heart note right up to the base note.
When the nose has almost forgotten the top note, a surprising, fine, narrow, dark green bouquet of flowers unfolds. A small, dark green bouquet of tiny white flowers. Tea leaves.... I also smell a little of an Indian spice tea I once had in my closet. That must be the cardamom. The heart note also only stays in the nose for a very short time and then passes into a sip in the base note, so to speak. It's getting warm!
The fragrance alternates between pepper, honey, green notes and very clear and dominant...woodruff!

Some time ago I had a box of tonka beans in my closet with a broken lid. Every time I opened the cupboard door, this heavenly smell streamed towards me. The fragrance is called coumarin and is found in both woodruff and tonka bean. The two smell similar to each other, in the tonka bean you may notice a hint of cream or vanilla.

Bvlgari The Vert is a light, soft green tea, gently perfumed with jasmine and bergamot, served in an almost transparent snow-white cup of Fine Bone China. On the bottom, a generous serving of golden honey. Stir with a filigree silver spoon. It's clashing quietly. This tea invigorates the palate and warms the stomach and soul. Half an hour of bliss, then memory.

Heavenly, but it's a pity the Sillage is so weak.

Watered down green tea
Eau Parfumee au The Vert is one of those fragrances that will appeal to those that don't usually like fragrances, if that makes any sense.

I rather like this fragrance's subtle and clean freshness, even though I expected a lot more green tea in this composition. I find it quite lemony and soft on the skin, which really works well in the warmer months.

Sometimes it can smell a little too detergent-like, it even reminds me of those medicated green tea gels for blemishes. However the sweet floral heart of jasmine and rose keeps the scent interesting and wearable.

I expected a stronger fragrance to be honest, something as strong as Eau Parfumee au The Rouge, which was a definite tea scent, very heady in its aromas. I wore this fragrance for the first time to a friend's birthday party, and while it didn't really suit the alcohol fuelled atmosphere, I quite enjoyed the subtle wafts of delicate greeness and refreshing soapiness every now and then.

Eau Parfumee au The Vert is nice, but it's not ground-breaking, even though Luca Turin finds it so. I find it inoffensive but a little too bland for my tastes. It's a scent that I'd wear for myself rather than for others. I'd use it as a refreshing bed-time scent or something to use as a means to freshen up during the day.

Complex simplicity
Au The Vert opens with lightly spiced lemon and orange, and then moves to jasmine tinged with tea. The lily-of-the-valley is also perceptible, but not central.

The drydown is a clean, fresh cedar, still suffused with tea.

This is a lovely light summer refresher, but there's more to this little gem than that. It was, I think, the first green tea fragrance, and it certainly remains one of the very best. I think of it as being like a pointillist painting in which the great Jean-Claude Ellena has used many brushstrokes (notes) to create the contours of a single object (green tea).

Very fresh tea-like opening, settles to a base that reminds me a lot of Gieffeffe's base. Its shower gel and soap are just amazing.

The '90s started green tea based perfumes, and this was a pioneer. Citrus, green, fresh, unisex. The unmistakable aroma of green tea is here

It's a minimal fragrance although its complex acchord. Refreshing and discrete in its elegant bottle, quite good but too expensive
