Thread: Define green fragrances
Usually the smell of wet or fresh cut grass, along with some herbals and citrus give a good impression of green. However I'm not sure I ve ever smelled something green in a totally linear way (I can imagine how boring this could be!). A green scent (with a twist) I recently smelled is Bel Respiro by Chanel.
In my strictly personal opinion, scents with a strong emphasis on herbaceous, under-ripe fruit/citrus, mossy, even slightly resinous notes
Something reminiscent of crushed fresh plants.
My Top Ten:
1: Guerlain - Habit Rouge
2: Guerlain - Jicky
3: Guerlain - Mouchoir de Monsieur
4: Guerlain - Shalimar
5: Knize - Knize Ten
6: Caron - Yatagan
7: Caron - Pour Un Homme
8: Jean Desprez - Bal a Versailles
9: Yves Saint Laurent - M7
10: Salvador Dali - Dali Pour Homme
vetiver and oakmoss Calvin Klein's CK1 and Guerlain's Vetiver come to mind!
Green Water from Fath is one of THE green fragrances
green to me is a grassy, herbaceous, sharp smell.
Diptyque - L'ombre dans l'eau
Workers of the world unite; you have nothing to lose but your chains. - Karl Marx
Hermes un jardin sur le toit comes to mind
Green = Vetiver
Vetiver Extraordinaire - can't be more green than this!
Vetiver as a note is very green. Off course that not all vetiver fragrances are green but vetiver as a note is green
my greenest smelling fragrance is annick goutal ninfeo mio, which smells like boxwood, green fig trees and crushed lemon leaves
if you're interested, look up http://www.thegoodscentscompany.com/odor/green.html to see what fragrance ingredients are considered to possess a 'green' note. they are categorized in order, so the ones that are primarily green come first, the ones that just have a tiny green nuance are listed last.
Is the juice worth the squeeze?
In order, IMHO...
Scents with galbanum and galbanum-related aromachemicals.
Chamade, N° 19, Quartz, Crystalle.
Scents with marked pine notes.
Pino Silvestre Acqua di Selva, Polo.
Scents classified as Aromatic fougeres or feeling like it due to the generous presence of herbs.
Agua Brava, Krizia Uomo, Jaguar.

Fresh, almost the smell of autumn with almost always a hint of vetiver.
