Other than having a God awful bottle, this fragrance is pretty tops. It is fresh and wears nicely for the $22 price tag. If green had an actual fragrance, it would be this. This smells overwhelmingly green. It smells crisp, fresh and grassy. It is so nice. Mark advertises this as some perfect fall fragrance. I really feel they released this during the wrong season. This is very spring-ish. Fall scents, at least to me, are spicier and heavier. This is as cool as a cucumber and as crisp as celery. OK, first things first. This bottle has got to go. I can’t tell if the bottle is drunk and running around with a lampshade on its head or if it has its panties in a wad. The green shade seems cheap to me for some reason. Ir seems like a man’s drugstore aftershave bottle. I have no idea what the designer was thinking with this one. Second, the ad campaign is lame. Like I said before, this is not a fall scent. Save it for another time, release something heavy and spicy right now. And it is created with the “global goddess in mind.” Whatever that means. Isn’t Global Goddess a cosmetic company that Victoria’s Secret carries? Nice to know that mark cosmetics is thinking of their competition. The website describes it as a “lush, beautiful blend of dewy green notes, fresh-cut flowers and warm tender woods.” I agree. At first it is super green, almost like Prescriptives Calyx. It is like a crisp salad, almost banana pepper-ish and it is celery-ish which I love. Then it smells like cut grass, like Demeter Grass, but with actual staying power. It smells like generic cut flowers. It has been a while since I “sampled” this fragrance and for some reason I want to say that it was almost Lily of The Valley-ish. But, in reality I am sure it is some water lily accord or something. It smells wet, it smells like spring dew. None of the mustiness of fall, no oak moss, leaves, heavy decaying or burning woods. There is woods in this but faintly. Most likely “wood” accord. It is still girly and really fresh. So there isn’t a lot of “wood” in it. This scent could be described as aquatic. I really dislike most aquatic fragrances but I like this because it is grassy and has enough flower power. Compare to Demeter Rain. In conclusion, I really remember liking this fragrance. Enough to buy it and the body butter that goes for like $15. It smells very interesting for the price but still really pleasant for the overall population. It would make a wonderful spring scent and has a staying power of many hours. More than Demeter Grass. Mark has a good thing going with this one. It is available on mark.’s website.
