    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.

    Edwards lists Angelique Noire as an Oriental. But, I do think it would be very interesting on a man !

    Check out Fresh Tobacco Flower. It's hella green and everybody thinks it's for boys. Other good ones are Herrera 212, and a new one, Billy Jealousy Illicit, just out at Nordstrom.

    In my strictly personal opinion, scents with a strong emphasis on herbaceous, under-ripe fruit/citrus, mossy, even slightly resinous notes

    green to me is a grassy, herbaceous, sharp smell.

    Vetiver Extraordinaire - can't be more green than this!

    The Edwards wheel calls many vetivers Woods (when they are paired with aromatic woodsy notes). And Vetiver Pour Elle is not really a green fragrance, even though it has vetiver in it. So, sometimes a vetiver perfume is not a green one .

    Vetiver as a note is very green. Off course that not all vetiver fragrances are green but vetiver as a note is green

    traditional green notes are galbanum, cis-hexanol (and related chemicals, smells like cut grass/green apples), and violet leaf abs. coumarin isn't green. leafy is green. but moss isn't green either, neither are earthy or herbal. these are descriptors in their own right. elements that have a note in virtually any category can have a green note as well.

    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.

    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.
