    Default Trying to replace L'Occitane Feuille d'Herbe Light & Green

    I am beginning to think if I like something, it is doomed to be discontinued. Fragrance background - for years I wore Clinique Wrappings even though I never liked it until about an hour after application, but it worked for me. Then it was discontinued except for holiday sales and I had kind of grown weary anyway.

    I then did a bit of shopping around, bought the L'Occitane but never fell in love with it. A couple of years ago I rediscovered the bottle and started mixing it with Isabella Rosellini's Manifesto which I found too floral on it's own. Ohhh, I was in love but alas, L'Occitane discontinued the fragrance. I shopped around, tried Creed Silver Mountain Water (smells like soap on me after an hour), even Padparadscha by Satellite Paris (okay in the winter) but nothing has ever stuck.

    I keep smelling the last of the L'Occitane bottle and it just has a certain something that really resonates with me.
    I did find the description of it on this site and hopefully some of you that have way more knowledge then I do will have some suggestions of things to try.
    HEAD NOTE: Bergmot, Lemon, Melon, Black Currant, Verbena and tomato leaves
    MIDDLE NOTE: Jasmine, Lily of the Valley, Freesia, Violets, Lilac and Magnolia
    BOTTOM NOTE: Oak Moss, Iris, Vetiver, Powdery Notes

    My fingers are crossed and I welcome all suggestions. Thanks!

    I've checked a few sites and although a few pop up, it's the tomatoe leaves that are not present. There's quite a few with lemon, blackcurrant and a few other notes you've listed such as:

    Acqua di Parma - Mirto di Panarea - Acqua Profumata
    Hugh Parsons - Traditional - Eau de Parfum
    Loewe – Quizás, Quizás, Quizás
    Maître Parfumeur et Gantier - Racine (possibly more on the masculine side)
    Miller Harris - Geranium Bourbon
    Patricia de Nicolaï – Violette in Love

    I know Lorenzo Villoresi Spezie has tomatoe leaves in it, but not the other notes you want, but it may be worth sampling. The notes are:

    Head: Coriander, Cardamom, Bay Laurel, green notes, Cypress, Eucalyptus, Mint
    Heart: Cinnamon, Clove, Pepper, Juniper, Fir, Oregano, Thyme
    Base: Tomato Leaves, Rosemary, Sage, Heliotrope, Oakmoss

    Hope that helps a little.

    I haven't tried either one, but your perfume seems to share many notes with Sisley's Eau de Campagne. Of course, it does not mean much, they could be completely different.

    I am happy that I now have a few to try although some of the ones from Craig might be a bit tough to locate in Dallas. Very intriguing list. Thanks!
