Jade by Hendley Perfumes

Spearmint, Geranium, Star Anise, Violet, Benzoin, Sandalwood, Musks.

Before I ever wear a scent, I'll research it a bit. It doesn't matter if folks are fawning over something or have judged it in a negative light. I have my own opinion and after reading what I could find, I expected, well..... the spectacular.

No, that doesn't set the sample wearings up for failure. I always hope everything I sample is fantastic, but we all know how that turns out. Had I never read a thing about Jade, my opinion would be the same as it is now. It's nice.......and that's about it.

Jade delivers in the green department. What blooms on my skin is spearmint with soft floral accents, a hint of wood in the drydown and throughout the life of the scent, a nice contribution of licorice. That said, there really isn't any development on me while wearing Jade. This is all about Spearmint and Anise.

This doesn't lean masculine or feminine. It's pleasant, non threatening and unobtrusive. In close quarters however, you will notice Jade and it's here where Jade retains its significance. That's a facet I like in every fragrance. This is linear on me, but has substance and will probably evoke spring-summer longings in the wearer. Sillage is average with longevity approximately 6 hours before reapplication. I know I haven't inspired any enthusiasm for Jade in this review, but I give it a thumbs up anyway. While not great, it's good and doesn't deserve less. As always, a sample wear is highly recommended before purchase.
