Elizabeth Arden have set their sights on a Cucurbitaceae this year to add a twist to their annual Green Tea issue, with the descriptively named Green Tea Cucumber...
The eau de toilette is inspired by the summery habit of putting cucumber slices in cold drinks of water for an added sensation of refreshment,
"An homage to sun-flecked fields and sips of cool water filled with cucumber slices, Green Tea Cucumber celebrates the crisp, refreshing delight of a radiant summer morning. Top notes of dazzling citrus and crisp Wet Cucumber Accord awaken a summery bouquet of Watermelon and French Violet Leaves Absolute. A base of Ambrette Seed and Radiant Amber balance this fragrance with a delicate warmth."
The composition opens on top notes of Green Tea Vapors, Calabrese Bergamot, Florida Tangelo, Tunisian Neroli and a Wet Cucumber Accord. The heart features notes of Watermelon, Jasmine Petals, Galbanum, and French Violet Leaves Absolute. In the base, we have Skin Musks, Ambrette Seed, Radiant Amber and Mate Absolute from Paraguay.
