A creamy green tea, delicious and soothing!
Hey, guys, how you doing? Welcome to my newest commi, who is once again about a tea scent. Which is actually quite appropriate for this time of year, isn't it? I mean, it's winter and you drink warm drinks more often. And apart from the coffee, which is very popular, tea is also a long running favourite with its different varieties... or mulled wine, but that's another story :D

I now come to a tea scent from Bvlgari. I had already introduced all the Thé fragrances here a few years ago (argh, I just see that I haven't tested the black one yet!) I have to do it some time!!), and I found them all really great. However, these fragrances have appeared years apart, so it's not as if they all came onto the market within a few years or even all at once. While the green Thé Vert appeared as early as 1992, the Thé Bleu, for example, did not appear until 2015. Be that as it may, today I come to the meanwhile discontinued Extrême version of Thé Vert, which hopefully smells a little more intense. Because as beautiful as all the Thé scents are, they all have one thing in common: they all have a terribly weak sillage *sigh*

Soo... arrrgh,... damn it, before I can spray the scent on, I have to remove the tesaband from the lid, aaaargh, why do you do that again and again... *mecker nag* Such a fiddling again...

The fragrance:
Okay, the fragrance begins with beautiful and fresh green tea and also smells softly powdery. I also smell orange blossoms, but the tea is the stronger scent. Pepper and cardamom also produce a tangy-spicy mixture. I wouldn't say you really smell both scents, but I suppose the slightly spicy aura is "caused" by those two scents.
The green tea becomes even more intense in the further process, which I find beautiful. It clearly smells like green tea, but the fragrance is of course very perfumed, because it also smells powdery and creamy.
In the base the green tea remains fortunately further contained and one can smell it also quite well. The other scents mentioned, such as powdery and creamy scents, also remain a little, so that the whole fragrance always smells very good from start to finish.

The Sillage and the shelf life:
The Sillage is still weak as usual from this fragrance series. I can't say if the fragrance is much more intense than the normal version, because I don't have the normal Thé Vert at my disposal, but you might notice a slight difference, which doesn't mean much, because the Extrême version is quite weak. The shelf life was okay with a few hours, so about four to six hours.

The bottle:
The bottle is cylindrical and slants at the spray head like a lipstick, whereupon the neck attaches. This looks like the shaft of a column, on which a chrome-plated lid, which is also similar to a column, is placed (so to speak, the lid is the capital of the column).
In contrast to the normal Thé Vert, this one has a dark green scent liquid. All in all a beautiful bottle.

Soo! You may already suspect it, but I am also enthusiastic about this fragrance! Although the green tea only appears in my lower cookies in terms of taste (I think that in the long run the green tea somehow scratches the throat, do you know that too?), I find its scent in fragrances very tasty, refreshing and beautiful.

The Extrême version of Thé Vert is therefore a very successful fragrance, which certainly smells stronger than the normal Vert, but on the whole it is still weak, but at least you can smell the tea really good throughout. I also like its soft side, which makes the fragrance pleasant, but also a little feminine.
I would say now that the Extrême would have been the better choice of the Vert fragrances, but unfortunately it was discontinued long ago. If you should "meet" it anyway, I would definitely recommend it for a test, because it is an excellent summer scent, which you can use super for refreshment on hot days, or of course to be pleasantly perfumed on hot days, because especially many scents on hot days can be rather exhausting, if you grab the scent. But since it doesn't exist anymore, you have to test the normal Thé Vert, which is worth it, just like all the other Thé fragrances from Bvlgari.

Soo, do you know why you come across tea so often in winter? Yes of course, especially at Christmas time there are a lot of advent calendars to buy, and besides the popular chocolate advent calendars with which you all stuff yourselves anyway (although I hope that you also wait for the respective day and don't tear open all the doors like the barbarians :D), there are also various tea advent calendars, which is also a very nice thing :)

Well, that's it again. I wish you all a nice evening and hopefully we will "see" each other again next time :D

Matcha
First, I think I would have made a mistake in the bottle, because at first it smells clearly like 4711 cologne. But the sparkling and radiant scent stream is quite quickly contained by coriander and pepper. The two make the opening of APATVE somehow ... more elegant, more refined, because the coriander gives restrained freshness without its typical soapy character and the pepper aroma without its nose-biting spiciness. Gradually, a velvety and slightly warming dark red rose joins in. I attribute this warming aspect to cardamom. Jasmine hides well. This progression takes place within 20 - 30 minutes.

From now on, green tea pushes determinately to the fore. It is a dark, a little powdery green, as I know it from the noble Japanese Matcha tea.

All of this takes place close to my body from the start. My nose hovers directly above the wrist. The longevity is in the lower-medium range at 4 - 5 hours. I feel the fragrance rather as - soothing - aromatherapy, which I mean quite positive.

I thank Supi for the test opportunity.

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.
