Elizabeth Arden have added a new flanker to Green Tea (1999) called Green Tea Pear Blossom, as they do each year exploring new olfactive nuances around the main fresh signature...
Inspiration this time are Anjou pear blossoms and more generally "a sundrenched pear tree grove." The composition is by perfumer Rodrigo Flores-Roux of Givaudan, who is in charge of recreating new interest in the eau de toilette year after year. He goes about his task by picking a new star ingredient one year camellia another year cucumber, yet another year nectarine blossom.
The edt offers a generous addition of natural ingredients as one finds more and more effort put into going back to nature in perfume formulae.
Top notes open on sparkling green Anjour pear extract, Italian bergamot essence, and Sicilian bergamot essence. Heart notes feature Anjour pear blossoms, Sambac Jasmine absolute from India, a green tea vapour accord and maté absolute from Paraguay. The base rests on "radiant musks", amber and white moss.
