Thread: Fresh cut grass

  1. #1

    Default Fresh cut grass

    I love the scent of freshly cut grass: crispness of greens, unique scent of crushed clover leaves, hints of daffodil bitterness and a big dose of sunshine. Such wonderful summer scent! I tried a few frags, but nothing comes close - many have hints of grass as a second-class citizen, but not as a main attraction. Last time I asked a salesperson at Perfumania, another one overheard our conversation and exclaimed "Who wants to smell like grass!?" Well, I do. Can someone recommend anything of that kind? Minus the loan mower fumes, please.

    Two that come to mind:

    Calvin Klein Truth- Clean grassy musk smell
    Paul Smith Story- A dirty grass smell with a hint of grapefruit.

    I think Demeter has a fragrance called "grass".

    The Art of Shaving's Lemon Eau de Toilette always reminded me of fresh cut grass.

    I think there is certainly some of the lawn mower fumes in Fahrenheit though.

    In my opinion, none of the frags mentioned so far can compare to the green leaves note in Xerjoffs Nio.

    When I see a query like this, I always tend to think the OP specifically wants something that smells exactly like what they're asking in a very linear manner. Grass open, heart and base. Not sure if that's always the case.

    Demeter seems to have the market cornered on this kind of query.

    Having said that, wearing Versace L'Homme today which has opening notes like fresh cut grass that is fantastic. But of course, those notes fade soon and a whole variety of other stuff takes over.

    I know this has already been said, but I second the Gap's Grass. It has been a while since I last smelled it, but I remember it smelling just like freshly mowed grass.

    Grass by Gap

    I used to cut grass, for a summer vacation as a teenager, and the Gap scent recreates that cut-grass-carried-along-in-the-air just perfectly.

    Fresh cut grass, clover, daffodils, sunshine?

    +1 for:
    L' Eau L' Artisan - green stems, flowers and grass.
    Sisley Eau de Campagne - cut grass then dried grass.
    Atelier Trefle Pur - clover & clean woods.
    Byredo Pulp - bitter green grass and green fig.

    Azzaro's Pure Vetiver is extremely grassy. It's inexpensive, too, if there are discounters in your area such as Marshall's/Ross/TJ Maxx. About $12.99 for 2.5 oz.

    Buy a giant vial of Hexenol 3-cis.
    It's am exact synthetic analogue of the main substance that evaporates from blades of grass after they get sliced open.

    or f you want a scent featuring that note, surrounded by other notes:

    Original Vetiver
    Mugler Cologne
    Miracle L'Aquatonic
    Frank Los Angeles
    Jacques Fath Green Water 2008 formula
    Adolfo Dominguez Vetiver Hombre
    Gap Grass
    Demeter Grass
    Givenchy Greenergy
    Gendarme Green EDP
    Paul Smith Men
    Paul Smith Story

    Or if you want the CHEMLAWN variety:
    Azzaro Pure Vetiver (pure lawn chemicals)

    Interesting that no-one mentioned Original Vetiver by Creed, which is fresh grass in a bottle.
    Great works are performed, not by strength, but by perseverance.

    Although you'd never expect it from the notes listed, L'Artisan's Navegar smells like grass to me.

    +3 for Creed Original Vetiver
    it's like cut grass elegantly rendered with Ivory soap

    Mugler Cologne is the cheap alternate, but to me it is harshly redolent of chemicals-- you just cut the grass after Chemlawn came by, maybe

    One other alternative might be Herba Fresca from Guerlain, which goes (essentially) Mint + Irish Spring Soap -> Irish Spring Soap + Fresh Cut Grass -> Cut Grass

    Thank you for all the suggestions!

    Indeed, OP "Juice" is pretty close and I do like it (although the bottle design is not practical). Demeter is close too (I had a bottle), but too "alcoholic" and evaporates in mere minutes (as many of their scents).

    I will definitely try Gap "Grass" since it was mentioned a few times but will not try Bond since they threatened TPC (my favorite sample supplier) - their loss. Other suggestions also look interesting.

    212 has green notes indeed but is not grassy enough to me. Lancome "Hypnose" is even further away. My test notes on "Fahrenheit" read 'starts with green notes and turns into something rather strange that does not smell of cologne at all...' Everyone's nose is different, I know.

    cis-3-Hexen-1-ol suggestion sound very interesting too, The Good Scents Company sells it, I think I will give it a try. I see that many compounds in hexen family smell grassy, but all have poor longevity. Any other options?

    Check out Lush's Grass showergel. I have it's not bad. CB I hate Perfume also makes a Grass accord
    worth checking out, maybe a sample first to see if you like it.

    I definitely get a fresh cut grass note from Creed Original Vetiver but it is far from a pure note. Probably Demeter that someone suggested, I've never smelled that note pure myself.

    I second the Hexenol 3-cis DULLAH mentioned. This can't be destilled from naturals. As CREED does not use chemicals, it would be pure chance to find just a hint on grass in any of their scents.
