Friendly and fresh
I already have the vanilla scent and find it beautifully understated and homey. When this one was on sale, I gave it a chance. Expectantly, I sprayed it on in the car and immediately found myself enveloped in a cloud of fresh floral scents. My first association was a spring forest after the rain. Very fresh, somewhat floral and green. Then, unfortunately, my second association was dishwashing liquid. I don't really know what to think of the perfume, because I love fresh green scents, but the dishwashing note unfortunately resonates until the end

So...
I had in my mind this perfume since sometime...
I'm a "All about greens" and vintage lover and I wanted one day to try it.
I bought it blind an 100ml tester brand new straight ahead.

The bottle came and the perfume is very good for all the "green perfumes" lovers.
It is very refreshing, it is like a tonic lime drink, very clean and safe.
I expected something very strong and maybe more verbena style but beware this is a soft perfume.
The longevity is not good unfortunately... :((
You have to re-apply even if you add 8 spritzes of it.
They won't last more than 3,5 hours on your clothes.
On me it lasts a about1 hour max.
So if you really want to get to Donna's Karan Verbena world buy a big bottle.
It is great for sports and gym.

Citrus Opening, Industrial Clean Drydown
Where the original DKNY PURE boasted the inclusion of "socially conscious" Ugandan vanilla (though each bottle contained about a nanodrop, according to my nose), PURE DKNY A DROP OF VERBENA (as my manufacturer's card reads) basically changes the entire composition. The white jasmine core is still intact, but the vanilla has been switched out for a huge dose of Togolese lemon verbena, along with a fairly big bunch of basil (not sure where that's supposed to be from).

The floral elements in this new flanker are so light as to be pretty much overwhelmed by the strong verbena and basil. So the flanker, although vaguely based on PURE, has actually become a unisex scent, unlike its namesake, which was a clear jasmine (feminine) perfume.

Unfortunately, this composition takes something of an "industrial" turn on the way to the drydown, which I find much less pleasant than the invigorating citrus-aromatic opening. In the mid-stages, PURE VERBENA smacks vaguely of something from the house of Clean or perhaps the new Jennifer Aniston perfume. The difference is that PURE VERBENA does not bottom out as a soap scent--it simply fades away.

Soft sweet velvety verbena; dry on top, saturated below, w/ a bitter, syrupy background. Fits the shade of green they used. Not longlasting.
