Messy!
I am not familiar with the original edition of The Vert, which seems quite appreciated. All I know is that this Extreme version smells... this close to a nightmare, for me. I get a really little “tea” note out of this, but it’s entirely drowned in an unbearably plastic and harsh blend with coriander and cardamom above all, something citrusy, something synthetically greenish and a bunch of really pungent spices. And just other stuff I can’t recognize. This smells at the same time complex and really simple, harmonically screechy and completely disgraceful on skin. More than “notes”, it’s just olfactive noise, a weird and rough spicy-sweet-green-tea mess. I can’t explain why, maybe is just a subjective issue, but this really makes me physically sick. Tremendously bold and linear, and as if wasn’t enough, also tragically persistent. A proper “scrubber” for me.

A Hegelian Synthesis--or is it a Paradox?
Bvlgari EAU PARFUMEE AU THE VERT EXTREME sounds oxymoronic to me. But I hold green tea in zenlike regard, greatly preferring Japanese varieties such as sencha, bancha, genmaicha, kukicha (green), and of course matcha, which are really destroyed by adulterants such as lemon and cream.

Setting aside concerns with the name of this perfume for the moment, EAU PARFUMEE AU THE VERT EXTREME opens beautifully with a blast of bitter greens. Very lemony and very green, not in the sense of tea, but more in the sense of grass. The opening reminds me a bit of Bond no. 9 CENTRAL PARK, but after the opening this unique creation becomes a very different kind of scent.

A mild green tea drydown is where this composition finally ends. Light, refreshing and, yes, zenlike, as if to offer a therapeutic reprieve from the exciting Sturm und Drang opening. EAU PARFUMEE AU THE VERT EXTREME smells nice through all of its various stages of development, but the opening and drydown really seem like two completely different perfumes, and those who love the excitement of the opening may be bored by the finish. Those looking for a zenlike green tea fragrance, on the other hand, may be alarmed by the somewhat jolting opening of this one.

I like both stages a lot, but it would be rare to be in a synchronic state of mind so as to be able to appreciate both the opening and the drydown in the sequence in which they unfold in this unique creation.

A bit synthetic, the original is much better than this flanker. Not bad, just not as good.
