**ATTENTION: L'Occitane has discontinued this gem in favour of their newer, pricier The Vert Au Bigarade**

I own this 3.4 fl oz EDT and the solid perfume.
The EDT has amazing longevity; spray it on your clothes and you can still smell it days after!
It is invigorating green tea with citrus, and a dash of jasmine flower. It smells sweet yet herbal-like. I'll always feel refreshed smelling this. :)
I prefer this over Elizabeth Arden's now. It smells very nicely blended, a "smooth" green tea scent versus EA's harsh, stinging green smell.

Let me just start off by saying this doesn't last very long - I own both the solid & the EDT and both are very fleeting in terms of longevity. That being said, it's a citrusy, invigorating green tea scent with a touch of woods which I like wearing to the office. It's comforting but not sweet or cloying (rather fresh and sparkling) - a reminder of summer (temperate summers in Europe, not tropical summers) when it's cold & grey outside.


I keep the solid at my desk and in my bag for touch ups, as the spray doesn't last too long. However, there are other products in the line up to layer the scent, which seems to help a bit.


I gave it a 4 for how fleeting it is (1 lippy off - but it is still beautiful in its simplicity and lightness). The packaging for both the solid and spray could be improved a bit, and it is nothing to write home about, but it is utilitarian and does the job. Could be easily used as a unisex cologne as well.


If you enjoyed this, you would probably enjoy Roger & Gallet Eau parfumée thé vert (a bit sharper than the L) and the Bvlgari EDT of the same name (more austere, less casual).

I love this fragrance, especially in the summer months. I originally was drawn to it because it involved tea, and I am a tea junkie, but was pleased to find that I actually also love the fragrance! It's fresh and clean, if it were a color it would be a yellowish green. Very pretty smell, and I always feel so fancy using products from l'occitane, although they are a bit expensive for my budget. I will definitely repurchase. I wish they had more products in this fragrance, since I would be all over a green tea hand cream/lotion.

Stunning scent that lingers for a long time. It's very refreshing and sweet.
I purchased mine in at outlet store so the price was cheaper. £17 for 20ml perfume and a bottle of body lotion - so it was reasonable.
Definately would buy again - haven't smelled anything similar to it.

I like this green tea scent. It lasts longer than any other I've tried. If you like green tea I highly recommend this!

I purchased the solid perfume, and now am not sure why - it smells like a man's cologne? It's kind of a pine, clean smell. After a few months, I am not liking it.

My bottle is several years old, so I'm afraid I don't know anything about the reformulation. What I have is a light, very green, very simple scent; absolutely refreshing on warmer days. It's unassuming and crisp, and avoids being overly sweet or cloying by anyone's definition.

This is such an awesome scent! I've been in search of the perfect scent for years and this one just blew me away..
It is so soothing, natural, elegant, full of happiness..
I just feel so good wearing it. The staying power is great.
I spray on both wrists at 7am and can still smell it on myself without getting tired and sick of it.
Besides this one, I'm also wearing Marc Jacobs EDP

Reviewing solid perfume version of The Vert/Green Tea scent. Nice scent, but definitely not very concentrated in the solid version. Fades pretty quickly which makes me wish I had gotten the Lemon Verbenda scent in the solid as that seemed much stronger.

I am giving L'Occitane points on this mostly because they came out with a solid perfume version of this scent in a small tin which is more portable in a purse or briefcase for scent touch-ups throughout the day or evening. Also, the solid versions are nice for travelling as there is no problems with perfume getting all over everything. Priced at $9.00 for a small tin, it's not like you break the budget for trying it - but again I would probably choose a stronger scent next time I buy.
