Elizabeth Arden has released a new flanker to their popular Green Tea fragrance range, Green Tea Cherry Blossom. The original Green Tea fragrance was released back in 1999, with Cherry Blossom joining previous flankers, Green Tea Lotus (2008), Green Tea Exotic (2009), Green Tea Lavender (2010) and Green Tea Camellia (2011).
Inspired by the ethereal beauty of the Japanese Cherry Blossom blooms at the Hanami festival (or flower viewing party), the cherry blossom is an enduring metaphor for the ephemeral nature of life and the female beauty.
Green Tea Cherry Blossom captures the lush freshness of green tea leaves, and delights the senses with ethereal pink petals that exude a sparkling femininity. The notes include; Top: Sheer Bergamot, Green Tea Vapors, Sparkling Lemon, Mid notes of Green Tea Leaves, Cherry Blossom and Bottom Notes of Cherry Tree Bark, Musk, White Birch Moss.
The addition of musk notes to the line up leaves you with a sweet powdery scent lingering lovingly on your skin, softening the ‘tartness’ of the refreshing green tea fragrance. One of my long-term favourite scents (I purchased the original back in 1999 and still stock up on it as and when), this lovely pretty scent is perfect for day and will whisk you away to a picnic under a Cherry Blossom Tree. The Cherry Blossom Festival (usually held end March / beginning April in Japan or September in Cowra, Australia where we apparently have largest Japanese garden in the Southern Hemisphere) customs include sharing a picnic under the cherry trees with friends and family, drinking hot sake and beer, traditional cherry blossom food and cakes, tea ceremonies under the trees with music and special dances.
