This perfume is very light, great for the daytime. The price is reasonable, like all of the L'Occitane perfumes. The green tea scent is not too garden-y and the jasmine enhances the green tea element without overpowering it. The biggest complaint I have about this perfume is that it does not last. You need to respritz it throughout the day. Hence the four stars and not five.

I only had a sample of this, but want a full bottle. I found the regular Green Tea fragrance a bit bland, but the Green Tea with Jasmine smells so wonderful, almost exactly like the jasmine green tea I drink, clean, sharp and floral. It's light enough that it doesn't overwhelm (tea scents should not sit heavy). The L'Occitane green tea scents are generally pretty good about not having a strong citrus note in them (I find that the citrus ruins and overwhelms the tea). The jasmine green tea one is strong on the jasmine, and I can barely tell if there is any citrus note in it (bitter orange is the only citrus listed of Fragrantica).

I should start by mentioning that the main reason I like this perfume is because I bought it while touring Paris, a trip that was pefect and extremely enjoyable. So naturally I'm going to adore a fragrance that reminds me of that visit.
This was an impulse buy and very different from the scents I normally gravitate towards. The fact that this smells exactly like the green tea with jasmine I drink each morning is what made this otherwise out-of-character scent appealing. The thing is, I enjoy sniffing it but I don't enjoy wearing it. There are some fragrances that are beautiful in the bottle but don't belong on your skin. So at the moment I use this as a room spray whenever I want a bit of light, summery freshness.

As an avid drinker of actual green tea with jasmine, I find this fragrance lovely and comforting. It isn't very strong (a good thing, for me) but I can still smell it on myself twelve hours after spritzing. I've been wearing it just about every day since purchase. I just wish my boyfriend liked it better- he says it's okay but he isn't the biggest fan of tea so of course he doesn't swoon for the scent of it.

This smells exactly like the expensive Jasmin green tea. I'm not a tea drinker usually. But I LOVE expensive jasmine green tea. And this smells just like that!

The green in the green tea is not accentuated, however, a tea note is present. This was very much the experience of having a cup of tea with rain pouring on the window panes and roof in a clean green climate (like Portland). It is cozy and the scent creates a wonderful feeling of familiarity and comfortableness, exactly like drinking a cup of tea in this illustrated environment! This scent is not, however, a wearable scent. In a candle, this would be just perfect.

I really liked this scent, until(!) an old dude that I work with said I smelled like a Barber Shop! Having never been in a barber shop, I'm not sure what that means exactly, but I'm thinking it's not really a compliment. It seemed light and clean to me, but maybe it's more antiseptic than fresh. I woudn't buy it again, but still use it from time to time as a room freshener.

Both me and my sister liked the fresh scent, it's not sweet at all. However, my mother, who is very sensitive to smells, always comments that the smell of Jasmin is artifical. I think you get a cheep scent for a quit expensive price.

Been wearing this for over a year now and over all I really like it. I do agree with other reviewers that the sillage isn't strong - but that's something I like. Fragrances are largely a matter of taste and personal chemistry. I prefer light, clean fragrances that aren't overtly aggressive and this fits the bill. The jasmine scent is true to the plant and I enjoy the tannic dry base notes of the tea. It's a very straight-forward fragrance that I can wear daily without getting a headache or giving other people one.

It must be individual's chemistry IMO. It smells lovely on me and has decent staying power. It opens sharply with jasmine note, fresh and clean, and dries down more to the tea note but still with lingering jasmine which turns out a bit warm on me. Can't help smelling myself every so often. I had been trying to find a spring/summer scent which works unique on me. I think this is it , at least so far I believe so.

Tried it... smelled like The Vert but with fake jasmine tossed in. It had such an after smell, not the dry down, but... it just smeled so cheap to me. A disappointment after the original green tea.

Just purchased this yesterday. Spritzed some on last night and this morning, and I am really enjoying the scent so far. Hubby likes it on me as well. I'd repurchase again, but this is going to last forever.

I tried this recently and fell in love with it. This transported me to those good old days of summer in India with jasmine flowers everywhere. I will definitely buy it, as soon as I am done getting the other fragrances in my long list.

This is a lovely green tea with jasmine scent. It isn't spot on a real cup of jasmine green tea, but it is still lovely and very close. The jasmine isn't the heavy, almost fecal jasmine of a la nuit, or the thick, almost powdery jasmine of head shop jasmine oil, nor yet the incense-y jasmine of sambac jasmine. It is, rather, the light, aromatic, fragrant jasmine of the plant, of MJ Blush. There's also a citrus top -- petitgrain I think -- and a very gentle woody base. It evolved through several stages quite nicely for me, and I've not only had no problem with sillage, I keep finding drifts of one lovely phase or another of the drydown on clothing, thinking "what IS that glorious scent," and then realizing it is my L'occitane Green Tea with Jasmine, sometimes mingled with something else. It's strong, lasts well, and I'm exceedingly pleased with it. The packaging is also very pretty and L'Occitane gives wonderful customer service (got this online).

Green tea and jasmine two of my favorite things! I've coveted a nice tea scent for a while and was excited about L'Occitane's new scent. Their prices are reasonable and the packaging is pretty. How can I go wrong with such a wonderful combo. It did smell lovely for a few minutes...then a sharp aluminum /metallic note emerged, I could almost taste it-awful. Happily the scent didn't last the trip home.

L'Occitane launched their Green Tea with Jasmine range here in Australia a day before my birthday and sent me a VIP invitation to go along to their nearest store for a free sample of their newest fragrance. I had been searching for a green tea fragrance for a while and the timing of L'Occitane's latest range's launch seemed too perfect. Even though May here in Australia signals the oncoming of winter, I was adamant on getting the Green Tea with Jasmine, which was zesty and refreshing and in my mind, completely different to the ghastly Elizabeth Arden Green Tea scent that everyone else seemed to be wearing. (Actually now that I think of it, I was just interested in splurging on a little birthday gift from myself to, well, me). So I took this home, spritzed myself generously, and sat down reeking of jasmine and tea and feeling immensely smug at my wonderful purchase. Until an hour or so later when all hints of jasmine vanished completely and I was left with nothing but pure green tea. Disgusted and more than a little annoyed at my impulsivity, I stashed this in a drawer of my dresser and forgot completely about it until now. Australian Septembers are mildly warm with a few blustering scorching hot days and it wasn't until a week ago that I dug this out from its forgotten corner and decided to give it another chance. I will grudgingly admit that despite its pathetic sillage (as both other reviewers have commented), it IS a good fragrance for summer, refreshing and light and airy. I will continue to use this and not commit it to my swap pile but once it's gone, I will not repurchase. I've been wanting to try L'Occitane's Green Tea with Mint...hopefully I'll have better luck with that one.

This product is by far the most reminiscent of my time in Thailand where the local people would string garlands of jasmine flowers and use them as offerings in temples. The moment i wore this, i felt at home.
If you're looking for a very heavy oriental jasmine scent than this is not for you. This is very much a summery, light and airy perfume. And word on the lack of sillage. For me this is a great thing cause normally perfumes "turn" on me and somehow get warped into a gross smelling concoction on my skin. Luckily this one stayed true. Thumbs up in my book!

Lots of green tea with an initial burst of lovely jasmine. After an hour it's simply strong tea, a little acrid, a little dry, which is a nice change. I like it--it's refreshing and the name is very apt--but there is no complexity here. (There is also no sillage here.) Not for me but I think it would be pleasant to smell on someone else.
