Joanne Bassett Vert is a perfume in the More Life Collection. Vert is a nice alternative for those that are looking for a natural fougère with a twist.
Vert opens with herbs and a sharp lavender. It’s a refreshing “green” fragrance with dazzling citrus. Vert gets sweeter with wear. It’s not like dessert-sweet but it’s a balsamic vanilla that is a pleasant contrast to the bitter green citrus. Vert wears as herbal sweet. The dry-down is a boozy tonka-vanilla with cocoa powder.
If you like classic masculines, you may be interested in Vert. It has that classic lavender and citrus “eau de cologne” opening and dries down to a “fougère” tonka bean. I also think it is a good, “unexpected” choice for warm weather.
Notes listed include sweet marjoram, French lavender, cypress, rose, green mandarin, vanilla, cistus, angelica root, black currant, balsam, pink grapefruit, cocoa, lemon verbena, and white cognac. PERFUMER – Joanne Bassett
Give Vert a try if you like bitter/sweet perfumes. Or if you like perfumes like Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male, Phoenix Botanicals Lavender Noir, Banana Republic Wildblue Noir, Penhaligon’s Endymion and/or Caron Pour Un Homme de Caron. Vert is unisex but I think it leans more masculine. In comparison to the others I listed, Vert does smell more natural.
Projection and longevity are below average which is rather common for all-natural perfumes.
Vert comes in a few sizes and different bottles, including the art bottle featured above. The 1 oz EDP retails for $190 at Joanne Bassett Perfumes. Samples are also available for purchase.
Victoria’s Final EauPINION – Bitter herbs with sweetness. I think this would make a nice masculine scent for summer.
