    Woah!, I turn my PC on and see over 30 replies! Good God thanks for the recommendations, I'm itching to try these out now. Its a shame Amouage haven't done anything Green because I would love to see a green rendition from them as well.

    lol i just let my friend tested it and he said it smelled like powder at the start (really powdery ?). But yeah, because of your excellent review, my blind buy (PdH) turned out great.

    I visited a department store in the UK not too long ago to try some of the dwindling MPG scents on offer and about 12 scents were on offer other than the ones I really wanted to try, Parfum d'Habit and Santal Noble

    Creed Selection Verte is an awesome green fragrance....it starts with a mix of citrus and mint before the citrus fades away and the mint dominates from here on....I've read people mentioning some 'sweet pea' accord in it but I can't seem to be able to figure that out....

    Must must try for anyone looking for a very fresh, clean green scent...

    I just wish it was a bit easy to procure.

    There are so many different types of green fragrances. What do you specifically dislike?

    My favourites of the moment: Chanel's Bel Respiro is very crisp, clean and loosely floral. It has a very slight vegetal hint, but not in a damp, dank manner, rather fresh and bright. Another is Frederic Malle's French Lover, a far more zingy crushed vegetal fest, with a hint of smoky frankincense, a very wearable springtime fragrance.

    Yerbamate smells like weeds and wildflowers in a way that nothing else I've tried does.
    Devin is a nice crisp pine. Think Polo and Yatagan stripped down or Pino Silvestre made more complex.
    Creed Original Vetiver. A nice green soapy vetiver.

    Green's are my absolute faves. Why I have not tried Mudassir's suggestion of Miller et Bertaux #3 Green, Green, Green and Green is silly, so now I simply must

    Apologies for any repeats:

    Balmain Vent Vert (original is killer green and available reasonably on ebay. 2nd formlation is my favourite and is available for a song online. Both would be great on a man or a woman- see my post for pics of the different bottles/formulations:
    http://community.basenotes.net/showt...ight=vent+vert )

    Estee Lauder Aliage or Azuree are both gorgeous dry greens.
    Gucci Envy (women's) is a wet green
    Chanel No19 is also nice but a bit cool for my taste
    Creed Aubepine Acacia is a gorgeous green
    Parfums de Nicolai Le Temps d'Une Fete is a chewy green delight (and 30ml bottles are around $40....)
    Niki de Saint Phalle is a forest-y green chypre (cheap online!!)
    Jacomo Silences is a dry sophisticated green, totally unappreciated imo
    Sisley Eau de Campagne is totally fab, green wet and fresh

    Armani Prive Vetiver Babylone: Vetiver, for vetiver haters. Very clean.
    Le Labo Bergamotte 22: Woody green citrus.
    Bond Bleecker Street: Sharp and sexy violets.
    Bond Central Park: Similar to Vetiver Babylon with more citrus, not as good.
    Heeley Eau de Verveine: Oddly "fizzy" green, slightly dirty.
    Frederic Malle En Passant: Ethereal flowery green.
    Fou d'Absinthe: Classic fougere.
    Creed Green Valley and Original Vetiver
    Stephanie de Saint-Aignan Li Altarelli: HERBAL-green.

    Have decided I'm not really into green scent-wise, but Greenergy by Givenchy is reasonable and definitely fits the bill.

    I have to say that I am slowly becoming more interested in green scents but in a way I didn't expect at all-through rose scents! Especially Rose Muskissime by MPG, Rosa Flamenca by Parfums Rosine and Sa Majeste la Rose by Serge Lutens. Is anyone else taking a like to green scents albeit indirectly?

    Just let me add to everything above mentioned
    Paco Rabanne PH, a classic musky green fougère
    Serge Lutens Chêne, a very sappy woody juice loaded with beeswax and black thyme

    For an inexpensive but first-rate designer green, try Balmain de Balmain (marketed to women, but a truly unisex green chypre).

    I was looking through these posts to see if and when somebody would mention the beautiful, but now criminally discontinued Gucci Nobile:

    Gucci
    Nobile
    (1988)
    Givaudan
    Jean-Charles Niel
    Green Herbal Chypre
    ------------------
    Top Notes: Bergamot, Lemon, Lavender, Rosemary, Tarragon, Mace
    Middle Notes: Jasmine, Green Notes, Rose, Cyclamen, Carnation, Geranium, Fir
    Base Notes: Cedar, Patchouli, Sandal, Tonka Bean, Musk, Moss, Vetiver, Amber
    ------------------
    An incredible green chypre for men. Why this was ever discontinued is a great mystery to me. It is one of the best of its kind. The herbal notes — rosemary, lavender, and tarragon — take the lead, and are soon reinforced by a galbanum accord in the heart. The citrus, herbals, and spice in the top notes are transformed by the florals in the heart and a classic woody chypre drydown lingers with subtle green hues persisting until the end. If only it weren't so difficult to find! I have one bottle in reserve, and then... pfft!

    A good crossover scent, in other words, not an uber-green scent, is Lauren Polo Green original. It has some patchouli in the base and it has nice deep development.

    Original Vetiver by Creed is so damn green you can taste it. It's the greenest smelling frag I've ever smelled.
