    Default Good fresh and green scent

    Hello guys a good Easter for all of you; which is for you the best green and fresh cologne that I can buy currently? I was a great lover of Davidoff Good Life?I'm waiting your help for one equal or better scent, thank you.

    Creed Green Irish Tweed and Original Vetiver will both deliver without a doubt. -- if your looking for REALLY green, I'd suggest OV over GIT
    One that I have yet to try that I am dying to get my hands on is Bond No. 9 Bleecker Street. This may not be the best recommendation (considering I haven't even put my nose on it) however from all the research I've done it seems like a very "green, floral" sorta scent. I want to sample it so badly!!

    Mugler Cologne. Also, Diptyque Philosykos - green/leafy/bright/fig.
    Madhat Scents - My personal limited run artisan perfume project. NEW Americana Rust (tobacco and wood...no cherry or vanilla filler.) / NEW Engin (aldehydes/amber/wood/smoke.) / NEW NorOud (Oud and Hops - a Northerly bright fragrance.)

    You didn't mention price limits so I'll suggest:
    Fico di Amalfi
    Calamus (light leafy green)
    Vetiver Vert (they don't come any greener than this)
    Roadster (minty green)

    Wow - I didn't realize it came in 300ml. That's HUGE! One of the best scents for the price IMO. You can't go wrong with this one.

    Also I'd suggest the original CH 212 and True Religion...LaCoste Essential is a good take on a citrus/sweet green scent.

    Apart from seconding especially Mugler Cologne, Roadster and Creed OV, some further green fragrances I like and am proud to recommend for further testing are: Guy Laroche Horizon, TF Grey Vetiver (still quite green, even though vetiver is not its only component), Lagerfeld Photo, Lanvin Vetiver, Etro Vetiver, Knize Forest, Gucci Nobile.

    I recommend Ichnusa by Profumum Roma. A really nice combination of fig and myrtle.

    If you really enjoyed Davidoff's Good Life, then Bond No. 9's Gramercy Park is very similar & often compared to G Life. It's not cheap, but it's an older Bond scent & you can often find decent deals on eBay. I only have had samples, but it's one of my favorite Bond's & I'd say full bottle worthy if you like sweet/green fragrances.

    Knize Forest easily available in Europe and rarely known.

    I'm not familiar with the scents of Vetiver but in my opinion has nothing to do with green / fresh / citrus fragances, pardon my ignorance if I'm wrong.

    I wished I could ckampus, but unfortunately I never had the pleasure of getting to try Good Life before it got discontinued.

    Some vetivers are very earthy and dirty, but some are very fresh and clean.

    My go to Green is Central Park by Bond No.9!!! Last me all day long... There are times that I blend some Little Italy by Bond No.9 with Central Park... Green Irish Tweed and Green Valley are also my faves in this category!!!
