This delicate, radiant, fresh fragrance has delighted me for a long time now. I find absolutely nothing sour in it. On the contrary, it is a light citrusy floral. I only lament that it is not long lasting, but it is so wearable and delightful that I don't mind to have to respray. Last year I went to the Iguazu Falls, a subtropical region in South America, and this is the only perfume I took with me. It was perfect for the humid hot weather, and I used nearly a full bottle of Thé Vert (Green Tea). Since then I have never been without a full bottle of this gem.

This is greenish, very slightly sweet and light. It’s fresh and definitely nice on summer days.It’s not headachy or sharp and wouldn’t offend anyone.
It starts off smelling green, flowery, herby and fresh with a touch of citrus and fades down to subtle sweet herbiness and green nuttiness - that’s maybe the cardamom. Although it’s light and fresh, I wouldn’t describe it as simple – it does have a certain elegance without being boring. I think it’s a classic perfume and women of any age could wear it. It fades fairly quickly, but you don’t want anything heavy in summer so that’s good.
I used to think Channel no 19 was a good summery perfume, and do stil love it, but No 19 is definitely more lady-like after you smell Au Vert, and in comparison smells old school. This is a perfume that you could wear on a long journey in a stuffy car without inducing nausea in yourself or anyone else.
Not the best Green Tea

I don't really get the sour note that other reviewers have described, but I can smell what they're referring to.
Not awful, but not good, either.
I have to admit that Elizabeth Arden is my favorite green tea fragrance. I just love it. It is fresh and clean, and much less expensive than any Bvlgari offering.
Very sour and strange smelling

Bvlgari is usually a hit or miss brand. They have some great ones, and some bad ones. This is unfortunately one of the bad ones.
May be too sour oin your skin too

Bvlgari Green Tea is a clean refreshing scent but it does smell a bit sour. The longevity and projection were less than average.
Green Tea is a nice blend of green tea, citrus and musk but the opening sourness is a bit too much for me.

Oh boy... I thought it was just awful... the smell from the beginning was not good but I could tolerate it but after a hour or more it got worse and worse... I wanted to take a shower. Bought it because my girlfriend loves green tea but this didn't help... haha. She didn't like the scent either actually.
So Sour :(

I like this better at the drydown, but the first hour was so painful for me. A horrible sour mango pickle smell. Then it turned into the sour stench of old perfume residue on old perfume bottles. Now the tea has slightly sweetened and is much softer - maybe I would prefer the bodycare from this line to get at the drydown faster as opposed to a perfume.
A classic, but...

A beloved classic, but sharp and sour on me. Poor longevity, but I suppose frequent reapplication is part of the appeal.
