    I'd probably say Terre d'Hermes. Every element in this fragrance just seems so pure to me, like i'm actually smelling the real thing. :-[

    Many from MPG: Centaure, Garrigue, Santal Noble, Eau des Iles, Iris Bleu Gris, Route du Vetiver; also Patou Pour Homme and Patou PH Prive both have very "natural" smells to me; L'Artisan's L'Eau du Caporal and Navegar; Villoresi's Piper Nigrum, Spezie, Sandalo, & Patchouli.

    L'Artisan's Mandarin Tout Simplemente smells incredibly natural. Just like a freshly opened satsuma.

    I could probably suggest something else too, but let`s say: Issey Miyake L’EAU BLEUE D’ISSEY.
    Well balanced scent with very natural smelling notes.

    Well, the most natural smelling cologne/perfume I've ever smelt would have to be Frederic Malle's Une Rose. I just received a sample and put some on and was blown away by the scent. They tout it as the essence of a rose and that IS what it is! I haven't tried Carnal Flower yet, but it smells naturally divine in the sprayer also.

    Comme des Garçons--Palisander

    It smells like a straight up piece of wood with some red spices. Good stuff.

    In regards to L'Eau Bleue D'Issey--I can see why people say it smells very synthetic or it smells very natural. It's kind of a contradiction, but it seems like heavy doses of both. With all the herbs, it smells like a heady mix of EO's...but then again, the overall effect can seem synthetic...so I don't know. I just know I really like it.

    Voleur de Roses smells of the earth and roses. It is the most natural smell I have tried.

    Hermes Orange Vert comes to mind immediately.

    Roger & Gallet Eau The Vert, L'Occitane Orange Leaves are pure nature

    Its the lemony ones that do it for me:
    Acqua di Parma - Colonia
    YSL PH
    Armani EPH

    Also:
    Caron PuH
    L'Eau
    Any bay rum
    Bowling Green

    Although they are totally synthetic, some fig leaf frags smell natural to me: Dune, Good Life (but not Philoskylos for some reason...)

    Sandalwoods do not smell natural to me. My guess is that Monsieur de Givenchy is pretty natural, but the sandalwood is the kicker for me (though I enjoy it.)

    Ruh e Khus (pure vetiver oil/essence), Sandalwood, Damra (sharp green leafy fragrance) etc are natural and among the 'most natural' perfumes that I've sniffed yet.

    The old version perhaps. The new one has a petrochemical note.....

    L'Occitane Lavande has to be the most natural smelling frag around..because it's made using L'Occitane's lavender and lemon essential oils!

    Ironically, my two choices probably have more than the usual amount of synthetics. By 'natural', I am indicating that they smell exactly like the real thing, not that I could drink it or that I even like it.
