Hanae Mori Eau De Collection NO.6 for Green

Aside from a cool minty chocolate chip ice cream with the breezy green color, I can think of many things with that color but only one catches my eyes. Hanae Mori N°06! It is in a vivid minty green color looking like a powerful elixir that is able to blow my mind away with its scent almost like bringing me closer to paradise. The only difference is that it doesn’t smell or feel like mint, instead very fresh and floral just like Spring.

Hanae Mori N°06 comes in a washed out light green box with a large butterfly that is accented with gold and a darker shade of green. The whole picture is like a butterfly dancing on the sea of grass.

No. 6 is a green fragrance that places nature’s needs first.  It is made in France partly with power from alternative sources: wind and sun. Part of proceeds from US sales benefits Clean Air – Cool Planet, a nonprofit group that works to solve climate issues through education and civic engagement.

Hanae Mori’s N°06 pays tribute to one of nature’s most beautifully colored creature, the butterfly. Inside the glass cap that seals the scent of the bottle is an elegant organza print of golden butterflies in flight. From the neck down the bottle can be seen in a cool minty green like color portraying the Spring florals. Finally, like every Hanae Mori Eau de Collection bottle, the title is painted boldly across.

Upon my first glimpse at smelling N°06, I could immediately smell Jasmine and Vanilla with bits of other florals. The predominate note is obviously Jasmine. After a few minutes I could sense the scent mellowing out a bit leaving a pretty even scent with other notes popping up on my nose. Orange Blossom and Sandalwood definitely can be sensed.

The top note is tree-ripe jasmine from Morocco, neroli from southern France and bergamot from Calabria.
The middle note is Egyptian jasmine for a hint of mystery, Tunisia orange blossom, green roses, American peony and heliotrope: a purple flower beloved by butterflies.
The base note is Tahitian vanilla, rich toffee, a touch of sandalwood from India and benzoin, a fragrant resin from tree bark.

N°06 proves to be a scent that is so fresh and calm that almost feels like sleeping in a field of jasmine with other flowers nearby. I could easily picture myself in that field while a cool breezy slowly drifts by. What a scent!

    This seems like an interested perfume. I do have too many Jasmines though.

      The Jasmine on this is quite amazing. I wear this quite often now.

    The green color makes the perfume look so minty and cooling. I tried #4 after reading about it last year and found it to be different than expected. I do want to try #6 because I am lover of Jasmine.

      The green color does look minty in a way but unfortunately it’s just the color.

    I purchased this from Bloomys and found this perfume to my liking. Is your cap loose because mine is quite loose?

      My cap isn’t loose it’s quite tight.

    I just smelled this and number 7 at Nordstrom and love, love them!

    I’m hesitant to put down almost $200 for these two. I wish they came in smaller sizes!
