    Default A good pine scent?

    Hello,
    I am looking for a good pine smelling cologne. I have tried a few:
    Pino Silvestre(too strong) Polo(pretty good) Green Jeans(going to try again)
    and some others that had real weak/almost non-existant notes. The
    real expensive/hard to obtain ones are low on my list. I have heard
    Aqua Brava, Aqua di Selva(spelling?) Green Water are a few that
    are listed as piney. Basenotes of mostly pine with wood or citrus
    lower notes mixed would be great. I hope this is'nt too hard.
    Finding this style has been hard for me. I have many fragrances
    in other catagories I just love.
    Thanks

    I would suggest The Art of Shaving Sandalwood. You'll be surprised with that "piney" accord... despite of its name.

    Pierre Cardin Men's Musk Cologne might be in the ballpark.

    Pino Silvestri ;D
    The only one I know of is Pomegranate Anise by Fresh Index. *That stuff smells just like a pine orevergreen tree after about 5 minutes. *The pomegranate is nice but goes away too quick or else I would get it. *I'm not much for tree/wood scents though so that's the only one I know. *I know it is not listed in the notes but I still have a sample and it is a tree in a 1ml vial, at least to me anyways.

    Sample Essencia de Zegna as well. I only wear that stuff during Christmas as it smells like christmas trees to me.

    Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Winter Delice. Not just pines but moist, lovely pines. It`s such a beautiful scent. Not easiest one to get, unfortunetly.

    I like Green Jeans by Gianni Versace but if you want to try it again you better hurry as it has been discontinued.

    Another vote for Winter Delice. This is marketed to women but is essentially a mens scent. A very strong and lovely pine scent.....pure pine i might add.

    L'eau d'Issey...not exactly pine but it's definitely green with bitter citrus notes tempered by woods and spices.

    Agua Brava is good value - it's a very commonly worn cologne in Spain.
    If you're prepared to travel upmarket, I strongly suggest you try Loewe Esencia.

    Mazzolari Mazzolari is the best pine scent IMO.

    Acqua di Selva is a soapy-piney scent, but not a lot of duration.

    Bowling Green is a citric-pine frag, one of my fiancee's favorite frags - she loves to wear it, even though it is hardly feminine. It reminds me of Christmas.

    Default Re: A good pine scent?

    Creed Epicea is a very nice pine scent, but a bit pricey. Azzaro Visit is an outstanding frag and long lasting. As much as I like them both, I have been amused to find that I get the most comments on Acqua di Selva which I bought on a lark. I guess it reminds women of their fathers.

    I was going to make this recommendation, too! An initial blast of citrus (lemon) is followed by a burst of pines. I also like Rocabar very much, but it is cedar and juniper as opposed to pine. I have Acqua di Selva and like it a lot and would second its recommendation. Essenza di Zegna is again more spicy cedar to my nose than pine.

    This is your answer. Perfect. I concur on both points.
    Especially on the Esencia, which I'm wearing as I type this!

    Blenheim Bouquet is the piniest scent I know of - too piny if anything - my ladyfriend dislikes it intensely.
    The pine in Green Jeans is more toned down and blends in well with the citrus.
    I can't smell any pine in Aqua de Selva which is otherwise a pretty good, but short lasting scent on me.

    I should also add:
    Tsar (especially if you can get the older juice)
    Ungaro I

    IMHO, Ungaro I and Tsar are cousins.

    Both are not predominantly pine though, pine is just a component.

    FOU D'ABSINTHE is very nice and very piney.

    If you want to go crazy, acrid, rancid, industrial pine go M/MINK by Byredo. It's insane.

    BdP isn't overwhelmingly piney. It's more soft and spicey, like an old wooden box.

    Paco Rabanne or Equipage though?
