Décou-Vert Review

Décou-Vert is not, as its silly name might suggest, an intensely green experience. Rather, it is a very straightforward lily of the valley fragrance with a vanillic, musky aura that’s redolent of M. Laurent’s Baiser Volé (Cartier, 2011). The watery-floral greenness is pretty and undemanding, but a dry, pale woody note sticks out a little too much in the top- and mid-sections for my taste. Given the Cartier is comparable in price, I know which I’d sooner pick.

Nose: David Maruitte
House: Laboratorio Olfattivo
Release date: 2012
Notes (per Fragrantica): lily of the valley, green leaves, magnolia, jasmine, lilac, musk, water notes, oakmoss.
