    Default What is the best "green" fragrance for you? (eg. notes: lemon leaves, vetyver, green tea etc...)

    I am a huge fan of "green" fragrances, those that combine notes like lemon leaves, vetyver, gree tea etc. Lately I decided to enlarge my collection of green fragrances and thus I have been brownsing throught websites and sniffing around fragrance stores to to discover new ones. As means to make my chase more focused, I decided to ask you guys for help. What is the best "green" fragrance for you and why?

    I like Calamus by Comme des Garcons. It's a bit too sweet, but I really like the "greenyness" in it.

    Vetiver Extraordinaire by Frederic Malle is about as green as you can get imo. It's fantastic too.

    Go there and go to "buy online" scroll down the list of things and there are samples you can order at the bottom, you can get three with each shipping cost you pay.

    I'm lucky to live near a Barney's that has an awesome selection of niche fragrances and an awesome SA who knows me by name that I always end up having really long conversations about fragrances with, really nice lady. Every time I go in there I end up walking out with a little baggie full of samples from Serge Lutens, Malle and such lol

    i always try to get my samples free, and malle will not even though i know people who have gotten them free, barneys gives out samples but they have been a pain to get anything from, i ask for some give my info and never get them. At least with creed and tom ford i can get access to those without difficulty. I have wanted to try malle a lot, lutens i have tried and not crazy about, oh well.

    Vetivers are a whole other subject. There are so many great ones. I've got a bottle of Givenchy Vetyver on the way now that I bought blind.

    How about Halston 1-12? It's got lots of galbanum and pine, two essential green notes.

    I have personally never smelled a greener fragrance than Tactics by Shiseido. It is difficult to find, but well worth the hunt.

    another vote for Chanel No. 19. A classic.

    And definitely try Nicoll No. 17 by Six Scents, Series 2. No 5. This is a fennel based scent, green and herbal, very fresh. One of my absolute favs.

    Another one for Calamus. Ive been wearing it all week.

    Azzaro Pure Vetiver is very green, but dry. I have it, but can't wear it. I get a slight headache from it. Stay away from Vetiver Dry (Carven). It's a Drakkar Noir knock off.

    Bandit Parfum is very green. It's nowhere near as leathery/rubbery as the edt stuff.
