Providence Perfume Co. Branch & Vine Cologne Natural Perfume Review

Providence Perfume Co. Branch & Vine

 

I’ve missed two things this summer: grilling and gardening. I didn’t think these things were important to me until I didn’t have them. In fact, when we had a garden I complained about it all of the time. It was so much work and it felt like having more pets. I couldn’t go out of town for the weekend without killing 15 cherry tomato plants. Yet, it was rewarding. I had so many tomatoes, black currants, herbs… Now I can have the happy memories of a garden in convenient perfume form. Providence Perfume Co. has launched Branch & Vine, a cologne inspired by summer vegetable gardens.

Branch & Vine opens as a green yet honeyed floral reminding me of linden blossoms and leaves. Once it settles, Branch & Vine is garden fresh. Green, living and yes, it reminds me of tomato leaves. It’s cool and green but not sharp. The heart is a warm jasmine with grounding vetiver, still sheer. This heart sort of shares the same DNA as Hindu Honeysuckle, but of course this is much lighter and greener.  The dry down is green leaves and faint florals.

I typically dislike green fragrances as I find them too sharp and not to my liking. I’m surprised by how much I enjoy Branch & Vine. It’s a green perfume for those that typically dislike classic green perfumes.

Notes listed include sunflower, green bitter orange, mimosa, muguet leaf accord, neroli, jasmine sambac, vetiver, fir and violet leaf. Launch date 2013. PERFUMER – Charna Ethier

Give Branch & Vine a try if you like green “garden” scents. Or if you like perfumes like Sisley Eau de Campagne, HEELEY Verveine d’Eugene, CdG PLAY Green, CB I Hate Perfume Memory of Kindness, Demeter Green Tomato and/or Annik Goutal Folavril. Branch & Vine is completely unisex and an excellent choice for warm weather wear. This is a natural perfume but one does not have to be a fan of naturals to enjoy this one. It easily competes with the perfumes I mentioned above.

This is a cologne and it wears like a cologne. Projection is average and longevity is below average. I get 2 hours maximum. This is going to be problematic if you view this as anything other than a cologne.

The 1 oz cologne retails for $80 at Beautyhabit.
