    Calamus (Series 1: Leaves) by Comme des Garcons is very close.

    I don't find Bel Respiro particularly floral, though.

    I am a lover of greens, especially green soft and floral, which I mos def get in Bel Respiro.

    You might try:

    Balmain Vent Vert. This is often compared to Bel Respiro, be sure to try the 2nd formulation of VV as it is the closest- looks like this:



    Estee Lauder Aliage, sparkly & green

    Annick Goutal Eau de Camille, a little grassier but a lovely green

    I'm sure I will think of more

    I too am fond of green scents and recommend trying some the following to get a fuller sense of the "green territory":

    Calamus (again)
    Annick Goutal Le Chèvrefeuille and Eau du Ciel
    Chamade
    Virgilio
    Cristalle

    Chanel No. 19
    Yerbamaté
    L'Eau de Ryokuei
    Envy
    (the original, not Envy for Men)
    Métal
    Calandre

    Creed Chèvrefeuille Original and Aubépine-Acacia
    Estée Lauder Private Collection
    Aramis 900 (green herbal-aromatic)
    Devin (green + leather, not particularly floral)
    Givenchy III (green chypre)
    Geranium pour Monsieur (green herbal-aromatic)

    Mind you, Bel Respiro is one of the best of the lot in my opinion, so you've already started near the top!

    These are all excellent recommendations! And he is right as about Bel Respiro being close to the top.

    Aubepine Acacia is so gorgeous, one of my faves! How could I forget that one? I loved your review of AA as well, Vibert.

    Thinking I need to try Chevrefeuille Original

    For me Bel Respiro has a great similarity in galbanum notes with Insense by Givenchy.

    Crisalle Eau Verte's dry down is similar to Bel Respiro's. However if I had to chose between those two I would chose Bel Respiro. I still have a few drops in my decant and is in the short list of future purchases.

    I wore some Bel Respiro last night, from a long lost sample and after it dried down it did remind me of Cristalle Eau Verte. I don't really like the CEV as much as I like the BR, but I can easily see how similar they smell.

    Huh, I still prefer Insense to Bel Respiro. And I`m thinking to get rid of my FB of BR.
