Three days ago I was visiting a niche perfumery store with the intention to sniff a couple of novelties. After a discussion with the sale assistant, in which I mentioned that I was fascinated by 1740 Marquis de Sade from Histoires de Parfums, he proposed me something that might interest me. The scent was from Miller et Bertaux, a house totally unfamiliar for me until that day. Because I like to be up to date and also since I found the fragrance extremely interesting, later I search additional information on this particular house.
Miller et Bertaux is the name of a visionary design house from Paris, founded in the year 1985 by the French designers and perfumers Francis Miller and Patrick Bertaux. The typical product of the house is advertised as “a fragrance for the boy and soul, dedicated to those who choose the balance between being and showing”. Reading this description, someone could feel intimidated, except this is not the case.
Green, green, green was introduced in 2005, as an aromatic green unisex fragrance. The scent is available as 100 ml Eau de Parfum, however due to its clean and light character with respect to persistence it behaves similar to an Eau de Toillete. Even though incense as a distinct item is not present on the listed ingredients, I perceived a dominant accord of fresh incense throughout the entire development stage of Green, green, green. The top notes represent a blend of bay laurel, verbena and coriander; later, they are joined in the mid development by a combination of jasmine and exquisite mastic resin. Finally, the dry down reveals a woody character, created by the combination of cedarwood and vetiver.
The presentation of the fragrance is very original; the banal bottle made from transparent glass that reveals a soft yellow hue liquid is contrasting with the packaging box that looks like a present with the red ribbon and the piece of twig attached on top. Green, green and green represents a new sensation, ideal if you love the green and fresh fragrances, however I should warn you that this is not an instant crowd pleaser.
