Pressed dandelion stems, oozing green and astringent juices; grassy citrus, zesty and dry. A light, young, fresh lily note without the slightest indolic roundness. The first 20 minutes define a ‘green’ scent. Then slowly, a mellow lightly musky note creeps in. A dusty vetiver, light wood and sandal, a tiny hint of rose. Individual notes are rather indistinct, the overall composition goes from bright green to shadowed woody green. It’s quite sharp, but the dry down is mellow. Suits all ages and could be worn in summer or winter, performs well in winter as it gives you a nice warm summery feeling. Envy opens with bright fruity notes, with pineapple being most dominant. There is a hint of peach in there. Bergamot adds crisp tartness, tempering the sweetness nicely.
The dry down is not truly chypre-like, as I was expecting, but instead becomes a musky, slightly mossy, woody accord. The sour phase subsides, and the dry down is a more pleasant phase of Envy. Remnants of the white florals are present, primarily jasmine. Silage and longevity are moderate, and it is feminine-leaning in my opinion. Green and crisp until the end, Envy is nicely crafted fresh green scent. Missed by many, it is a pity it has been discontinued but no worries we have managed to create a great sustainable ethical vegan alternative.
