    Oh, I`ve already saw that for excellent prices, but since i`ve never saw so much comments about it, it never got my attention. It seems interesting according to your description

    I always think of Havanna as a green and leafy scent :-s

    All of these are good!

    *Eau d' Sisley #2 - fresh cut greens with spring flowers
    Lacoste Booster - green grass essence mixed with a Rive Gauche PH type of incense spice.
    Byredo Pulp - bitter greens - very pure
    Chanel No. 19 - flowers + cut greens + wood
    Hinoki, CdG - cedar greens
    *Angelique Sous La Pluie, Frederic Malle - green vetiver, angelica, pepper = the most pleasant green fragrance.
    * Bois d' Orage, Frederic Malle - damp green forest floor after a rain storm.

    * my favorites of this group.

    Three very green scents:

    Kiehl´s Forest Rain....is watery green with sweet fresh tones.

    Etro Palais Jamis....Uber green, leafy and sappy.

    L´Occitane Vetyver: Mossy Green (being myself a big fan of the smell of brazilian mata atlantica, this frag reminds exactly of the smell of it after it rained: mossy dam soil with green plants and rooty smells)

    cheers

    Lately I've been enjoying "Cowboy Grass" from DS and Durga. Picture a super-dry field of Midwestern grass. It is described as "A scent of wild grass and flourished herbs; earthy and slightly smoky. It features the notes of Haiti vetiver, white sage and clary sage."

    A couple of others not mention so far;

    Paul Smith Story - one of the best green leafy fragrances of the last few years. Ivy and green rose.
    Givenchy Green Energy - green leafy with mossy basenotes.
    Gendarme Green - one of the greenest there is.

    Let me add one more;

    Lancome Miracle L'Aquatonic - a little softer than the above, but still unmistakeably green.

    While I think that a lot of suggestions on this thread are green, many of them are not 'autumn' type green scents.

    Having said that, I agree with Calamus by Comme des Garcons, Cowboy Grass by DS & Durga and will add one that hasn't been mentioned: Route du Vetiver by MPG.

    Mike's comment makes me ponder the issue of SEASONS in green scents. I offer my take at a taxonomy -- others will have different views, no doubt.

    Spring green: tender, delicate, sap. Cool mornings, dew. Cool into warm. Bright
    Summer green: dry, dusty, garrigue-style. Warmth, sunshine, brightness and heat
    Autumn green: Warm into cool, moisture into dryness. The melancholy ebb of energy; scents of decaying leaves, forest floors. Darkness and cool.
    And winter green? Why, pine and coniferous scents, of course!
    Really, what other "color" offers so many facets!

    Ithink autumn may vary depending on your geographic location. Ibelieve that Brazil doesnt have a typical "falling leaves" autumn....
    I personally associate autumn with moss, pine and cedar, liquidambar and smoke. But in brazil autumn is more the "rainy" damp, green season. Lots of flowering orchids, very fragrant.
    What odysseusm says made me wonder what autumn can be in a universal basis....

    I like what Halo is saying about the universality of seasons. Spring and summer (I assume) are basically the same everywhere. But autumn and winter have very different connotations depending on your geographical location. The degree of cold that is possible is a key factor. Interesting. Cool and damp, vs. cold and dry...

    Pablo, what you described is applicable to the North and Northeast areas in Brazil. The South and Southeast ones has winter and autumn more defined. The overall air aspect is dry and cold in autumn and winter. I live in São Paulo, and here we have at autumn and winter cold days, not as cold as north winters, but cold days that get closer to 5ºCelsius

    I would like to offer a suggestion, but just to clarify. When we are talking of autumn, it's been brought to my attention by previous posters that autumn in Brazil is different than what we consider to be autumn. I did a search of autumn in Brazil, and for comparisons sake, is this what you're going for?

    Autumn in Brazil


    Because this is what I normally associate with Autumn (by the way, my absolute MOST favorite season!)

    No, the autumn here in Sao Paulo is not at all like the first pic you posted. This looks more like a North/Northeast autumn. The autumn where i live is more like this:

    Yup, that looks pretty much like New England actually; nothing green about it actually. Maybe you should choose a spicy or amber fragrance instead. Maybe L'air du dessert Marocain? :P
