Hello dear snoopers and welcome to a new fragrance commentary. Today we have a rather loose scent again, namely Green Tea Pomegranate from the Green Tea series by Elizabeth Arden. A fragrance series that might be worth a look if you like green tea scents, although the tea scent is not always very noticeable on some of the flankers.
Anyway, I like to test the green tea scents, because I don't have to tell you how much I like tea anymore. Well, the green tea is not one of my favourites and after drinking it I sometimes have the feeling that it would scratch my throat a bit, but nevertheless tea itself is simply something great, even in fragrances, because they also smell very pleasant to me.
Now comes the flanker with the pomegranate flavour, which sounds great, because pomegranates are one of the most delicious fruits of all, but unfortunately they are very annoyingly difficult to peel and cut, so that you would like to hit them with a hammer, which by the way is absolutely NOT recommendable (especially in a brightly furnished apartment...), unless you have the whole room covered with masking film... :D
Anyway, I am curious about this flanker, even if it should be the 100th flanker by now!
The fragrance begins with a beautiful, slightly powdery and above all fruity sweetness. One quickly smells maracujas or a passion fruit. Here, the green tea is relatively weak or is covered by the passion fruit, but somehow it does not smell like green tea but simply tea in general, so one already notices that there is tea in it, but one cannot exactly determine it. With the pomegranate giving the name to the tea I am a little bit unsure, because as I said, the passionfruit radiates quite strongly and therefore covers all other fragrances, but this is not bad, because it smells nice.
A little later I smell the tea a little better, which now smells like a mix of fruit tea and black tea. Apart from that I still smell a lot of passion fruit and berries, now some pomegranate after all and general clean notes. These clean, powdery scents could come from the violets.
And that's it, because green tea fragrances are never particularly complex. But they do smell pretty nice, like this one.
The Sillage and the durability:
The sillage is rather moderate, but everyone who knows green tea scents knows anyway that these scents are not strong scents. So you will only be able to smell the scents very close by, and not necessarily for long. The shelf life is also below average with about four hours.
The bottle! The shape of the bottle is still the same, i.e. tall and rectangular and slightly rounded/oval. It has a pink hue and you can see beautifully drawn leaves and pomegranates printed on the bottle. The lid is pink. A beautiful bottle.
As almost expected, this green tea is also very nice and even one of my favourites among all the flankers, because it smells pleasantly nice, the teen note is later on very smelly and it doesn't have a stuffy annoying side note like some of the more flowery flankers.
The fruity sweetness is also beautifully feminine and pleasant (and yes, even delicious :D) and because of its loose vibrancy, the fragrance is especially good to wear in spring and summer, preferably during the day, as it is not very durable for going out, as beautiful as it is, and does not radiate much.
Somehow the scent also has something relaxing about it. For example, as if you had done some gardening in summer and then sat back and enjoyed a warm cup of tea (yes, you can drink tea even on hot days, but then not quite so hot tea, otherwise you sweat a lot, but warm tea works great... tea always works :D). And then you let your eyes wander over the garden, are proud to have plucked out all the weeds in a tiny corner and postpone the rest until next week due to laziness, which of course is postponed until autumn. But then you have the advantage of having an overgrown garden for Halloween... uh, I digress again :D
Anyway, the scent is highly recommendable for all green tea fans, but one should just not expect so much from the pomegranates, as I had the feeling that one could smell a little more passion fruit, well, at least with me it was.
There it goes again. Well, thanks for reading and see you next time :)
