    Diptyque Eau de Lierre is excellent if you ask me.

    Good point!

    Bowling Green - still widely available and inexpensive, even though discontinued - should not be overlooked.

    The brand was Rectoverso, and yes it was an excellent scent. Too bad it's very hard to find now.

    I would say either Bulgari's Green Tea Extreme or Sisley's Eau de Campagne.

    Can't believe that nobody has recommended Grey Flannel!

    I just tried Cristalle, and I think it's a very nice green fragrance as well.

    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
    Thanks for the tip. I have already ordered my Frederic Malle's frag samples: Vetyver Extraordinaire, Bois d'Orange e Geranium pour Monsieur. Nice!

    Creed's fragrance are always highly recommended but they are so god damn odly expensive. Never actually have I purchased one, thought I love Millesine Imperial. Does anyone know a safe website where I could get nice bargains at reasonable shipping costs towards south America?

    Creed's Original Vetiver is the definition of green in my collection. Very nice, but I'm having some longevity issues with it. Yes, Creeds are expensive. You didn't put a price limit on our "best green fragrances."

    Try first. You can likely find it at a pretty good price- at least less than retail. I'm sorry I don't know who ships to SA.

    Try Scentiments, Fragrancenet and see if they do.

    What a surprise to see with all the suggestions here, WildThingy again finds the need to attack Creed and has now elevated his status to a level with Luca Turin.

    When does your Guide come out?

    Ones who hate creed usually are resentful of the pricetag and that they have been successful for so long. What else is new.

    Chanel No. 19 is a classic green, might be doable as a unisex, but not for me.

    My green is a green citrus, Hermes's Eau D'Orange Vert -- an all-time top 10 for me!

    Many great options there! My favorite 'greens'?

    Diptyque L'Ombre dans L'Eau (green stems with hint of fresh rose).
    Loewe Esencia
    Chanel No.19
    Sisley Eau de Campagne
    Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Herba-Fresca
    Geoffrey Beene Grey Flannel
    Creed Original Vetiver
    Frederic Malle Vetiver Extraordinaire

    Btw where's our resident conehead odysseum with his green/pine recs?

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

    +1 GIT, Green Valley, Grey Flannel, Bois d'Orage/French Lover, Navegar, Fou d'Absinthe

    I'd also add Maitre's Racine (very green vetiver with lots of citrus up top, a perfect balance and my favorite vetiver)

    A green scent that has some floral touches but is easily wearable by a man, and this smells very real and organic, is Fleur de Liane by L'Artisan.

    Another great green scent.. this one is green tea and cardamom over a violet/rose backdrop, with hints of suede in the drydown (and an amazing texture to it) is Azzaro Now for Men. A fantastic scent.

    A very green, colder and more piney take on Yatagan that is worth a sniff is EldO's Eloge du Traitre.

    I've also heard really really good things about the green scent from the Six Scents Series 2: Number 5 Richard Nicoll - Nicoll No. 17. It has notes of: Florentine fennel, Fennel pollen, Exotic black basil, White iris petals Caraway seeds, Tarocco sweet orange, Angelica roots, Southern magnolia, Early summer ivy buds

    Here's the page for it.

    The reviews there all love it, and I remember it getting a really good review by Octavian Coifan of 1000 fragrances.

    I may be hypernosmic to something in it, but Parfums de Nicolai Patchouli Homme is the greenest thing I've ever smelled. I dig green scents, but this was so powerful I had to give away my sample because it was all I could smell in my sample box (even in a closed atomizer).
    Again, I may be the odd man out here.

    My favourite "teas" are Ambre Russe by Parfums d'Empire: vodka, amber and tea from a samovar.

    I also like the tea in Annick Goutal's Duel. Tea with leather and iris.
