More Tarzan Jane than Adam's Eve or: The other side of paradise....
This is not a lovely scent of paradise that describes a delicate landscape where you can walk carefree and smell innocent flowers.

No, Eden is rather the other side of paradise, a mysterious jungle full of tropical climbing plants, poisonous perennials with psychedelically colorful flowers and carnivorous plants that attract the visitor with their beguiling scent and then never let them out of their spell.

At first Eden appears harmless, citric, almost playful and lures you olfactorically into the depths of the green. There you suddenly find yourself surrounded by heavy, tuberose notes that will not let you go. Every now and then the orange blossom flashes like a will-o'-the-wisp between the trees, but whoever tries to follow it quickly loses himself in the patchouli abysses of the jungle.

For me, a surprising new discovery on the bottom shelf of the drugstore today (even if it has been around for ages), a fragrance like a tropical revelation in the dreary November frost.
A nice change to all the standard designer fragrances that are currently flooding the market!

And who doesn't need a little jungle feeling every now and then?

Polarizing Green Hulk
I liked Eden from the beginning. The really only Cacharel I like for me. Granted, he is something special. You can recognize him immediately, there's nothing like him.
He doesn't look that green to me. Rather powdery, warm and spicy.
One of my favorites, if only for its endurance and sillage. Scarves and shawls still smell in the cupboard after months of use. Anyone who is flirting with such "scent gozillas" and can handle them should definitely give the "Great Green" a chance. I wouldn't want to miss him any more.

Greenhouse fantasies
Somewhere in a remote part of the country, Professor Liane Buchsbaum is experimenting with a variety of plants. And she owns some greenhouses for it.
Their aim is to cross plants with each other to create botanically almost impossible specimens that have never been seen before and which also smell!
And seldom has anyone seen her. Some have been smelled.
What she breeds there in her greenhouses is already very daring.
There are pineapple oranges on thick bushes, the rind of which smells like patchouli. A cedar can also be admired that carries lily of the valley flowers between the tufts of needles.
Special attention should be paid to the pond, which is home to lotus plants that are also home to floating watermelons.
The jasmine shrub as a "double flowering plant" with rose blossoms is nothing against it all year round.
And Mrs. Professor continues her research... on sweet grasses with tonka fruits or tuberoses with citrus scent....
For their imagination knows no bounds.
At the height of her research studies, she brought out a fragrance that is the quintessence of her work:
A fragrance of her greenhouse fantasies: EDEN........

Heaven's on strike...
Eve was a moll.
Adam was mad.
God was drunk.
Satan was green.
Heaven was crumbling.
Innocence was decaying.
Debauchery was thriving.
Something was very, very wrong.
But also so very right.

I should have booked in 1994...

The Secret Garden
Eden has fascinated me since my former perfumista days. It's like one of those things that should exist, an entity that simply a talented person shapened in the right way. The exotic name, the green bottle, the misterious scent. It haunts me and makes me always want to come back to its secrets. Eden is also a very interesting reminder that you don't need to smell natural or you don't need something to be ultra expensive to be unique and unforgettable. I see many saying that Eden smells like plastic, but to me it always smelled like candy. There is something on the combination of notes that makes me think of a ludic garden where the trees produces jujube candy and its flowers smells like a mixture of polen, mimosa, sugar and citrus candy. It's fantastic how it seems to remain the same way throughout the evolution even though it's not a linear aroma, much like a panoramic fragrance that takes you around what is in this garden

A Classic That Needs Your Attention. Now!
I used and loved Eden in the 90s, but like most people you move on and explore other scents, sometimes new beauties become favourites, sometimes you return to an old love, the latter has happened to me yet again. Today I sampled Cacharel's Eden for the first time in almost two decades, initially I wanted to remind my nose what it exactly smelled like again.

Oh my! The magic of Eden struck me all over again! After spraying it on my wrist it became clear to me why I loved this beauty so much in the 90s. It's like walking into a love-grotto of sumptuous and intoxicating notes that bombarded me from a single spray on my wrist. Mimosa, tuberose, lily, patchouli, jasmine, cedar, tonka bean and I could swear some kind of magical moss and herbs that are not listed (perhaps they're secret magical ingredients made by wood nymphs?) and a deep forest ivy are somewhere in there too! Hmmm!

It's a magical, strong, unusual and seductive smell and I wouldn't be surprised if the Lempicka House got inspired by Eden for their range of otherworldly scents. For Eden is just that: otherworldly! Needless to say I had simply no choice but to pick up the biggest bottle I could find. It wasn't me, it was magic! ; )

Silage is: "magical beauty is all around you" -- Longevity is (as one would expect from a child of the 90s) a wonderful 9+ hours.
If you have never sniffed this one do yourself a favour and experience this beauty! Even if it's just once, it's a magical classic that should be owned and/or known by every Perfumista. Enjoy!

Greenhouse - both steamy and fresh
To begin with I was convinced that Eden would put me off big time. I'm not too fond of Cacharel in general, and the description... citrus? Water floral? Green? Ew.
Surprise! I liked it, really liked it. I can't trust myself or my nose when I try samples as they for unknown reasons tend to behave differently than when I try from a bigger bottle. (Wonder why that is).
Anyway, as soon as I found it at a good price I bought a bottle, suspecting that I had probably been mistaken when I thought I liked it.
Not at all. I'm not fond of too much citrus, but Eden seems to open without that stinging feeling. Quickly it changes into the compressed green smell of warm plants and flowers in a greenhouse on a hot day.
Now this sounds suffocating. It isn't. It's a fresh warmth, if that makes sense. It's a 'wet' smell like how it bursts from plants and flowers after rain. Imagine that heating up in a greenhouse. Wow.
Basically a summer scent, but absolutely warm enough for winter. I don't find it sweet.
The only bad thing I have to say is that the bottle is hideous. They should have switched it with the beautiful box - but who cares anyway, as long as the juice is good!

this has a masculine overtones a bit
feminine and softer version of faberge's brut;
rain soaked leaves and
fruits and a bit of musk float together
in harmony in this jade ceramic bottle.
i can also pick up beeswax.
the bottle is a bit bland with no frills.

Not Agent Green (as expected...)
To my shock and delight, I've finally found a Cacharel perfume that I actually like: the highly polarizing and wacky EDEN! I was so convinced that this was going to be Agent Green and that I would be felled immediately by a plastic-madness headache that I ran a preemptive bath before even donning this entrancing elixir. Upon application I said "Hmmm... POUPEE meets DECI DELA," but then something miraculous happened: instead of the plastic destroying the composition, it mellowed out and left this incredibly bizarre yet somehow enchanting perfume! I do feel that I could easily cross over the line to headache land, but I am obsessively compelled nonetheless to sniff my wrist, ready to take what may be that disastrous last gamble over and over again...

What a pleasant surprise! Of course, I don't want to get too excited, since it may be that with further application the fat-soluble plastic will build up and the scent will become intolerable to me--as the vast majority of plastic note perfumes are. But for now, I'm riding the luscious green waterfall of EDEN. Odd, yes, but in a good way. Definitely unique. Not a perfume that anyone should consider buying scent unsniffed, given the vehemently negative reactions that many have had. In fact, caution is in order even with regard to wearing this weirdo in public, lest one offend... But I like it--against all rational expectations! (-:

Trip to the Amazon Jungle
The sales assistant was correct in saying that this fragrance by Cacharel is unique and somewhat intriguing.

Unusual, intense, tropical and sweet are words to describe the beauty of this amazing scent. Eden is a fragrance that you will find yourself falling in love with over and over.

Personally, I can't see how anybody could dislike this scent, however I am aware that what I love is not always to everyone's taste.

It's hard to pin-point a certain season and occasion for this fragrance to be worn. I think Eden could be a very versatile scent. It has enough depth and distinction for the colder months and a freshness and vitality for the hotter months. How you wear this fragrance will rely on your own personal choice.

Eden has great sillage and the lasting power is fantastic. I am also a fan of the packaging which is as odd and quirky as the fragrance itself.

For me, this perfume is the perfect blend of fruits, flowers and woodsy notes. The citruses and the pineapple notes aren't strong or sour and the mimose, tuberose, jasmine and rose notes are absolutely divine.

I must add that this isn't usually a fragrance that I would find myself liking, it's contrary to my tastes. However, there is something very enticing about this fragrance. It is a must try.

A fruity floral ...thing with peachy sweet'n'sour texture that lasts and lasts, I'm afraid.
