Maybe give Kiton Black a ride.
Thread: Green Scent Question...
bobby jones, is named after a golfer and smells like a green golf course very well done..apply sparingly
trust in me and buy MARQUIS BY CROWN.
I'm gonna suggest a classic which deserves it's status: Grey Flannel.
Grey Flannel is considered green??? I obviously have no idea what a 'green' scent is supposed to smell like because I do not think green with Grey Flannel (you don't mean Eau de Grey Flannel right?)
I wish I had seen that outfit...to me it sounds like you'd want something heavier like Polo Green to support an outfit of such restrained class. I like the selection of FM VE..but I think it might be too airy (and you mentioned not wanting vetiver).
What about something really simple like Orange Verte? I find it very green and uplifting, I think it also lasts longer than people think. It's also easy to get, cheap, and women will like you for not smelling like Polo Green Your skinny ass might have to use the soap for extra longevity.

Hmm, what is Grey Flannel considered then? The violet and oakmoss give it a green feel to me - but I take it I'm associating the wrong qualities with the understood meaning of green, here.
i dont think i've smelt anything that smelled more like a pure grass during summer time than Frank Los Angeles.

I have been exploring Penhaligon's and these are some :toppie:s if you ask me.
English Fern would be my preference for green...I get lavender, mint and just a hint of incense in the drydown. (mind you , that could be my imagination, but that's what I get.)
LOVE this one. It's on my new wishlist and I would get it just to wear around the house now and then, being a woman, I don't see myself wearing it out and about much.
"Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations." Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins p. 189
What I am loving right now: Shalimar vintage extrait, Chanel Bois des Iles, Chanel no. 22, Le Labo Iris 39, Guerlain Iris Ganache

Thank goodness. If Grey Flannel wasn't considered green, I wouldn't know what could be.
I tried Grey Flannel again and anyone looking for a green fragrance would be very disappointed with this one as green.
The company marketing description of the scent is "Grey Flannel is classified as a luxurious, oriental, woody fragrance. This masculine scent possesses a blend of lemon, orange, violet, cinnamon and rose. Accompanied by woody notes of oak and sandalwood."
It may be green to some but there are definitely better fragrances to satisfy the natural desire for green. I smell no green notes in Grey Flannel - a little citrus before the violet/rose and woods?!
