Cooling in the white shades of the swimming pool...
This Green Tea flanker made me curious about the 'Camellia' note, together with the fresh colour of the bottle and the retro-taste package illustration. Although some camellia varieties are said to have a distinct scent (as Shiseido using headspace for their various camellia fragrances would tell), for my part, the ones I came to know were odourless.
In this Green Tea interpretation, I rather perceived the familiar scent of the traditional camellia oil hair treatment - a little bitter, green, smoky and leaning on the masculine side. The main notes for me were the mix of fruit, a tiny hint of juicy citrus, and spices. Watery, pale florals show up to just add a gentle, clean touch, keeping to the background. The spices provide a very nice cooling sensation, more subtle and mild in their refreshing effect than mint - as in the opening of the original Green Tea, it could often appear menthol-like and too harsh for my liking.
Once the initial spicy spikes had subdued, Camellia's projection also became skin-close, and after 12 hours, it left a faint trace of a cheerful orange.
My nose being accustomed to really strong, concentrated green tea scents, it apparently was oblivious of any tea note in this fragrance, as much as in the original version.

Although my expectation based on the advertising ('inspired by the Asian feeling of peace and tranquility') was not met, I found it very enjoyable nonetheless, in a more sportive, extroverted way - the sensation of relaxing in the open air, in the cooling white shades at the poolside under the clear blue sky. Overall, this is a nostalgic scent to me, like an homage to the 90s - a mix of L'Eau Par Kenzo pour Homme and Eau Belle d'Azzaro which I both used to wear and enjoy.

Camellia, despite the listed notes, does not have any sourness and is more aquatic (meaning watery, not ozonic), fruity without being over the top, invigoratingly spicy, just a little flowery and, to me, even more unisex than the original Green Tea. It is discontinued, but I would still recommend to give it a try if you are looking for a pleasantly cooling and relaxed unisex floral fragrance suited for summer, especially in humid heat.

Green Tea Camellia
Extraordinarily clean and smooth citrus aromatic! Absolutely perfect for sweltering heat and humidity. A sparkling opening of fresh citric purity embraced by an elegantly light and smooth green tea accord folds out like an elegant origami crane into an exquisitely blended heart of camellia, white peony, magnolia, clean jasmine, and mandarin blossom. A tantalizingly fine base of delicate spices, woods, moss, and white musk sustains this balanced composition which leaves wispy tendrils of zen-like tea ceremony freshness in its trail. No acridity, bitterness, or overdone sourness here to spoil the perfect serenity. Tranquil, uncluttered summer refinement.
