Ambered Fig Leaf
Vert d'Eau opens with a mild watery citrus infused aromatic grassy green fig accord before transitioning to its heart. As the composition enters its early heart the citrus-laced grassy green fig deepens, adding mild herbs to the well-blended mix. As time passes the aromatic fig gives way to the now starring green fir-like fig leaf with a very prominent dry amber undertone that grows into co-star as time passes. During the late dry-down the dry amber turns mildly powdery as the fig leaf hangs around, now supporting it. Projection is below average but longevity is superb at between 14-15 hours on skin.

Vert d'Eau started off promising as true to its "Green Water" name it smelled like watery grassy greens. The citrus early-on worked extremely well with the herbal aromatic green nature of the fig, adding near-transparent support giving the composition its watery texture. Then things began to fall apart as the near-coniferous smelling fig leaf and dry amber entered the picture. The combination is not only monotonous, but additionally irritating. It seems like the dry amber will never go away as the composition turn extremely linear from hereon in, only softening briefly at the very end of its life cycle, allowing the wearer to finally enjoy its slightly powdery remnants. The bottom line is Vert d'Eau starts off pleasant but the overwhelming dry amber and fir-like fig leaf prove too much and wear one down as time passes, earning this disappointing overall composition a "below average" 2 to 2.5 star out of 5 rating and a mild avoid recommendation.

Safe flowery citrus
I need to open this review by saying that lemon-centric perfumes have never been a favourite of mine, so my thoughts will be slightly biased.

Vert d'Eau opens fresh and lemony, unfortunately reminding me of run-of-the-mill air-freshener. It smells like someone took a handful of lemon zest, dumped it in ice-cold water, gave it a good shake and then threw it over you, which depending on your preferences, could be either a good or bad thing (the association with air freshener made it more of a bad thing for me, personally).

Fortunately, I get a blast of mandarins and its leaves barely 3 minutes after application, so that helped deviate a little from the initial blast of lemon-flavoured water. I pick up a clean white floral too.

As it wore on, it became more floral and a tad less citric, like a pleasant spring/summertime breeze. It felt like you had your nose in a pot of white blossoms, breathing in the flowers and the leaves, with a bowl of oranges by your side. Not bad at all. Very airy, light, and unobtrusive.

And it just keeps getting more floral! As it wore on, somewhere into the 3rd hour, it developed a slightly fruity feel to it. It wasn't a specific fruit note, but it just freshened it up a bit more and made it more sunshiny. It remained like this all the way till the end of wear.

Overall, I wasn't very impressed. It seemed to be like a very office-safe scent that is citric and floral. Yes, it's uplifting, and yes, I'm glad I stuck on pass the air-freshener opening, but this isn't a game-changer for me.

It sat rather close to the skin, and lasted around 5 hours on me.

Crisply green, yet gentle
Soft, zesty and green with a sharper galbanum type edge. Fresh with a softer floral centre that stays with the more watery florals and nowhere near the fulsome types. Freshly bruised citrus fruits with a green, figgy, sappy note that stays strident. There is a clean herbal quality to this that keeps it right in my favourite crispy green zone.

I was beginning to think Sophie only did cute, but here she presents a well structured and crisp scent suitable for office and smart occasions where being fragranced balances well with being taken seriously.
No sweeties or talcs here, just soft citrus, slightly fruity, sappy and gently woody. Fresh and pleasant and definitely in the green/fresh department. It dries down towards clean musky woods but with a light citrus touch.

This reminds me of a walk on a cool early summers morning when the sun hasn't yet warmed the lemon grove and the figs are just emerging on an old tree you just brushed past. Nothing forceful, just a clean, fresh, watery and crispy, sappy green. I can't see this offending anyone even in places where scents are frowned upon.
