  1. With a name like this I would have expected something dark, but this is not dark at all. I’m getting tomato leaf up front and something like peaches and something that makes me think of white tea, it’s very pretty. Now that it’s been on for a while I am getting more of the oakmoss & ivy too. Ultimately I loved the initial tomato leaf + fruit and wished it stayed that way.

The tomato leaf is strong at first then recedes later although it’s still there. It’s like a green/herbal/fruit scent with a little earthiness from the oakmoss.

  3. This is the first perfume I tried with tomato leaf as a note, and I was surprised I liked it as much as I did. On application, the tomato leaf is very strong on me. After about 30 minutes, the sweetie, fruitier elements start to emerge. I could still smell a faint vanilla on my wrist 12 hours later.

  4. It’s a very spicy and green tomato leaf scent. As it dried it got a hint sweeter from what I attributed to the honey note, but it’s still a very green, and very realistic, spicy tomato plant scent through and through.

  5. I blind bought a full size of this because I loooove tomato leaf and was anticipating a tomato-leaf centric scent- which this isn’t really, to my nose. It’s a strange blend of musky dark green notes and sweeter scents like peach and vanilla. The whole effect is pretty interesting, kind of a darker (oakmoss, I think) forest blended with sweet notes. I wasn’t a huge fan of how it dried down on my skin (a bit cloying) but it stayed forever, I tried to scrub it off and the scent was just not having it. So good staying power, I guess!

  6. I think this is a great ‘tomato leaf for the uninitiated’ scent! Peppery tomato vines dominate the opening, but the spiciness is tempered by other delicate green notes and something sweet and fruity, the most obvious of which to my nose is lychee. I’m not usually a fan of fruity notes in perfume, but here they are offset enough by the green backdrop to make them realistic rather than candied. The other notes are hard to detect individually, but work with one another – sweet fruits and vanilla taking the sharp edge off the greenery, ivy and oakmoss adding depth and preventing the perfume from being oversweet. It’s just a lovely take on a garden perfume without smacking you in the face with sharp greenery.

    I was really happy with this blend, and I think it would suit anyone who enjoys tomato leaf, as well as anyone who typically enjoys mainstream-adjacent scents but wants to try something a little different. Longevity was 4 hours – it’s on the lighter side – with low to medium throw.

  7. I was mildly disappointed that it was not quite as tomato-leafy as I had wanted. It is, however, a nice balance of citrus (perhaps peach + tomato smells like citrus to me), honey and tomato leaf
