The Truth About Green Tea Bitterness
Should my green tea taste bitter? In a word, no! Green tea should be sweet, crisp, creamy, delicate, nutty, seaweedy or greenish... but not bitter. If your green tea does taste bitter, it will either be a poor quality tea, or it has been brewed incorrectly.
Whilst the aforementioned statement is valid for drinkable green tea beverages, it does not apply to wearable green tea scents. Believe me or not, Roger&Gallet Thé Vert is one of the best bitter green tea cologne I've ever smelt. I don't know if such a bitterness is due to the presence of guaiac wood or what... yet the result is so pleasant, masculine, making the scent not only for women. If you take a cup of green tea and dilute it with lemon juice, you’ll get something close to this Roger & Gallet number. It starts out tart and sharp, but the musk makes it sweeter as it dries down. A posy of white flowers softens the lemon, and the rest of the story doesn’t change much until Thé Vert fades.

Thé Vert opening is brilliant, tart and sharp, it creates around you a scented aura that recalls the bright and divine atmosphere inspired by the Far East land. More, it reveals all the complexity, tenderness and harmony of the oriental tradition and offers a pleasant soothing effect on the skin. I can recognize a zesty mix of citrus fruits, allegedly sour lemon, bitter grapefruit, and gentle mandarin orange peel's oils. The blend even has a floral tone, which reminds me of the powdery facets of iris and violet blossoms, perhaps the lily-of-the-valley or the freesia provide that crisp accord. The white flowers soften the lemon, and the rest of the tale doesn’t change much until Thé Vert fades in. That floral moment is the only prominent feminine aspect of this wondrous scent, anyhow so soft and delicate, not overwhelming or annoying people around or close to you. When it comes to green tea scents, you might immediately think about Elizabeth Arden or Victor Green Tea takes, yet this scent is different. I like how it kindly hugs my skin and smells fresh and uplifting throughout the day.

The heart contains a green tea extract, a kind of like yerba mate or matcha, the sheer presence of white flowers, and I bet some sort of citrus blossoms such as orange or lemon, zagare or neroli, call it as you prefer, they must be in there cause a pleasant and uplifting citrus aroma stays in the background all the times. The green tea is very pure and natural in here, it simply dominates, yet doesn't overstand, and with the added woods it gives a more masculine character.

Afterward, the dry down reveals with a musky, sweet amber, and woody accord that lasts for 4 to 5 hours on my skin, then it’s completely gone, but by then, I’m ready for a more substantial evening or night fragrance. Thé Vert is one of those casual perfumes that don’t pretend to be great works of art and deliver plenty of enjoyment for few bucks. More, this is an eau de cologne, a so-called Fragrant Water, and it does a great job compared to many other eau de toilette scents that are gone in half an hour or so.
My personal flavor suggests me to wear during late spring and all summer daytime, even pleasant but too light for evening or night out. No matter how old you are, it performs well at office, leisure, or weekend with friends. Go test it, you will be surprised about how good is this cologne.

Thé Fresh!
I have tried many Green Tea fumes and I found this one very casual and sporty.
My favorite Green Tea is Eau Parfumee au The Vert Bvlgari for women and men.I like the musk on it but this one is romantic and calm.I don't know why they are so negative reviews about this Spring water perfume.A very comfy and relaxation one with Japanese rose-some notes are not listed- and a refreshing flowery, woody, citrusy and green tea harmony.

From Roger & Gallet site about this fragrance: The caressing majesty of Mount Fuji at daybreak. Allow yourself to be carried away by the radiant, sacred atmosphere of Mount Fuji rising among the tea fields. The senses are aroused, the mind is stimulated under a natural waterfall of green tea and citrus fruit blended with the subtle sensuality of the precious wood. The Roger & Gallet Green Tea Gentle Fragrant Water takes its inspiration from the wisdom and harmony of the oriental tradition. The balancing of body and mind.

This green tea keeps it's promises and pls don't judge it like another one lemon cologne.Feel it.It is unique!

a cooling breeze in a bottle
I'm not usually a fan of green tea. But this isn't really at all about green tea. R+G The' Vert is really an easygoing, well-blended citrus scent. It seems like the tea is in there only to take the sharp edges off the citrus. Somehow, it does so without the chalky, claylike effect that I think marks glasses of green tea and green tea flavored sweets (I've had both green tea ice cream and mochi that were way too much like mud).

It's beautifully balanced. Interestingly, another website lists its nose as Philippe Romano, who hasn't anything else like it. (He's the nose behind Dali's Le Roi Soleil and several of the fruity-floral Escadas.) It's perfect for hot, stuffy nights when you don't want something too citrusy to wake you up.
