The Scoop

In an interview to a French magazine, the perfumer Jean-Christophe Hérault admitted to a twin obsession with the sap-filled scent of lentiscus and the smell of freshly renovated old houses. Somehow this blend of green and mineral must have inspired Amazingreen. Or did he take his cue from the flintand smoke facets of vetiver?

This “blast of green energy” from Comme des Garçons starts out cool as a tropical shower from bouncing shiny leaves the size of umbrellas. Moves on to a slightly sulfurous “gunpowder accord” (think of how the air smells after fireworks) as guerillas skulk through the undergrowth. Is that something burning? The ice-cold sear of green pepper on the tongue, the wisps of smoke of a campfire in a secret clearing…

Tough and lush, exuberant but slightly dangerous, the vegetal and mineral elements unfurl their various facets side by side. Trouble’s clearly brewing in the jungle.

Here's what other people are saying about Amazingreen...
I picked a sample of Amazingreen based on my interest in green scents, plus my LOVE for vetiver. Well, this is certainly green: at first hit, incredibly lush, clean, a little sharp, all the tropical leaves dancing together. After the initial dry-drown I can smell corriander seed and I believe the gunpowder accord-- assuming that means Gunpowder green tea. After some time there is a large presence of white musk, and if I smell close enough I notice vetiver in the background. The reason I wouldn't buy a bottle of this is unfortunately white musk gets headache-y to me unless it is very gentle, and this is suprisingly strong and long-lasting white musk. Also, I was wishing for more vetiver. I can appreciate this but it's not for me!

It's very commercial. Like any Taylor Swift-like fruity fragrance you could get at Walgreens.

Lol, your son has great taste! So does my dog, she gives her chop lick of approval for the ones she likes and turns away from the ones she doesn't! :) Anyway, I like this alot. Smells like a less powerful 888 and original PLAY.

mmmm I really enjoy this one. It is fresh but unusual. definately green but not bitter or too watery. My 6 year old son picked this out of a lot of 7 samples as his favorite.

Just got a sample today. It reminds me of Issey Miyaki for men. It's not bad but a bit on the feminine side.
