Dryer sheet that smells nothing at all like actual grass (which, if you crush a clump of it in your hand and smell it, you'll notice has a distinct bitter component). A sprinkling of B&BW-type "berry". Disappointing.

This is another one of those lovely green florals that don't work with my body chemistry. It starts out very green and grassy, but after the drydown it smells sort of melon-y and watery on me, which isn't bad, but isn't very good either.

I agree! What a fresh, green, lightly floral fragrance! It smells very expensive and very classy. When I first applied this it smelled completely grassy, like a huge field of slightly sweet greens. After a bit of drying down some of the other notes appeared to compliment that fresh grassiness. The flowers are light and airy and just gorgeous! The berries are hard for me to detect on my skin, but if I sniff super hard I can smell just the faintest hint of what could be ripe berries. Not berries that could be eaten like blueberry/strawberry type berries but those kinds in a forest or field that grow on bushes. I can't remember what those are called but I think of those tiny little round red berries that are toxic to eat. Anyway, this is perfectly lovely and a new favorite. I just wish I didn't have so many BPAL favorites though....I could easily go broke trying out all of their beautiful fragrances!

This smells very fresh and clean to me. Not clean as in soapy-clean, but clean as in just-after-a-clear-spring-shower clean. The grassy notes are very predominant, they are not sharp grasses but soft, clean grasses. The floral notes are indeed a "faint breath" and add just a touch of sweetness, along with the berries, which I can ever-so-barely detect. This is an excellent spring or summer daytime fragrance, very innocent, very youthful, but there's also something very, very sophisticated about it. This reminds me of something that Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and the City would have worn out to lunch when she temporarily lived in Paris towards the end of the series. Somebody who carries a Birkin or a Kelly bag would probably love this because it's understated and reminds me of the epitome of "good taste."

For the first few hours I could smell nothing but bright, green grass. Smelled like early summer mornings with their freshly mowed lawns and garden clippings. Very green and fresh. At about hour five, I'm finally smelling the berry notes starting to come through. The berries are slightly sweet, but more tart against the grass, making me think of the wild raspberries that grew by my grandparents' house when I was a kid. The floral notes are extremely subtle, but give an impression of wildflowers crushed underfoot.
This is a very green, youthful fragrance. It's all warm days and children racing around on grassy fields. It's innocence, laughter and unfailing optimism.
Nice scent, but this is too fresh and green for me. Grass scents have never been my thing, though I think this would be great on someone else.
