A Different Sort of Green Rose Perfume...
Rose and hyacinth were what I thought that I was mainly smelling in Michael Storer GENVIEVE. According to the manufacturer's card, these are the primary notes:

Bulgarian Rose
Rose de Mai
Desert Lily Flower
Nuances of Apple and Pear
Galbanum
Sandalwood
Japanese musk
civet

So I gather that the galbanum is the source of the greenishness I perceive, though it does not smell like heavy-duty galbanum (as in classic chypre) in this composition.

Anyway, this is a lovely rose perfume. It's a different sort of green rose perfume than the usual rosebush-in-a-blender ones. The apple and pear notes remind me a bit of Hermès JARDIN SUR LE TOIT. But here the rose is much more important than the fruit peelings. The lily and the civet seem to be adding complexity and a touch of darkness to this creation.

Now three for three, I'm prepared to make a bold induction on Michael Storer: the guy knows how to make fine floral perfumes! Good longevity and pretty big sillage.
