    Grey Flannel - Unlike others, I find the reformulation to be pretty good, a nice smooth violet leaf and oakmoss combo with terrific lemon and some light spice. Truly green with all that moss.

    Green Irish Tweed - Terrific green, to me closer to Grey Flannel than Cool Water, or perhaps the best of both those worlds in one scent. Full of violet and violet leaf. Deep, purplish-green scent.

    Green Valley - I actually like this one a hair more than Green Irish Tweed. It's a little more "bitter" green, with a cool grassy top that moves into a pleasantly fruity ginger and ambergris.

    Sung Homme - Must amend my review of this one here on BN. It's excellent if you like Irish Spring soap, which is the most common "green" deodorant soap here in the U.S. Sung Homme basically smells like a more complex perfume version of Irish Spring.

    Silences - Pretty much the holy grail green so far for me, and you may or may not have a similar experience if you try it. But it's an amazing galbanum, iris, muguet, rose, and grass scent. The florals are never really "there" in your face, or too sweet, but are rather attenuated and simply add pastel dimension to this overwhelmingly green perfume. Get the one in the grey box with the title printed once on it in gold.

    Tsar - considered a fougere, but frankly I'm beginning to find it to be more of a straight-up green scent. Excellent lavender, mosses, sparkly green notes with bittersweet dimensions. Truly a must.

    Original Vetiver - Beautiful green scent in the same manner as Mugler Cologne, with much more dimension. Not much of a prominent vetiver note in there, though. Takes the bitter grassy effect of Green Valley and amplifies it, while stripping the bitterness a little. It's hard to top the smell, but I share the complaint of those who find its longevity lacking.

    Sport Field - by Adidas. Kind of a poor man's Green Valley. Has a very similar construct of grass, ginger, pink fruity notes, and bitter citrus. Hard to beat for $15. Definitely better than its brand name suggests.

    Portfolio Green - the only Perry Ellis frag I've tried, and it's nothing tremendous, but again a good budget green. Takes synthetic and very sweet citrus notes and a weird neroli and patchouli accord and makes it resemble a sweetened violet leaf. Olfactory illusions abound in this one.

    1-12 - Halston's best imo. Lots of galbanum, lots of pine and herbal notes. I almost feel like there's too much galbanum in this one, it has a very "air-freshened" effect. But it's really good.

    Aspen - better and greener than Cool Water, to which it's often compared. Another one that can be had for cheap. Nice dry minty pine sap scent. Not too sweet, either. Decent longevity, solid scent, definitely green.

    Floris Limes - if you like this sort of thing, it's fleeting but my favorite lime, it's quite fresh and green and clean.

    Bowling Green - comes in a close second to Grey Flannel for me. Nice citrus top, some sparkly herbs that darken into an odd green scent. It's fresh, and it's very masculine, and it's extremely green. Well ahead of its time.

    Quorum - my summer green. smells like burnt September grass. Lots of other masculine notes, but this one is underrated.

    Country Chic - if you can find it, get the EDT. Another one with similarities to Green Valley. Fresh, grassy, a little fruity, a little floral, with mentholated spices.

    Mugler Cologne - the "original" Original Vetiver. Beautiful smell, but not nearly as dimensional as the Creed. More of a white musky drydown. Try OV first, and if you really like it but don't want to spend the cash, this one may appeal.

    Horizon - by Guy Laroche. Nice minty aquatic fougere. Lots of green herbs, some pine, some moss, an excellent grapefruit top, and what smells to me like a lower-fidelity ambergris in the base, Creed style. Not aquatic in the contemporary sense, much more herbal.

    Eau de Givenchy - I love this one. Glinting snowy green notes, muguet, hints of jasmine and rose, and bitter grasses throughout. A gussied-up Eau de Cologne.

    Pleasures - similar to another Lauder, Intuition, but without its warmth. More green florals, but everything is bitter and unisex.

    Green Water - I love the body wash, but I'm not keen on the fragrance. But it's just not my taste. You may feel differently about it. It's a classic. Bitter, minty green cologne with limited longevity and sillage, but well made.

    Chevrefeuille Original - another ridiculously underrated Creed EDT. It's part of their EDT line, but it has EDP strength. Gorgeous grassy notes with a touch of something like fennel or anise, followed by a sweet but evergreen honeysuckle that never turns into a floral bomb. Lacks the predictable ambergris drydown. Should be at the top of my list, but if you've read this far you deserve Chevrefeuille Original.

    Pino Silvestre - if you like the smell of pine, in a very non toilet cleaner style. Simple, crystalline, fresh, piney goodness. Hard to beat I think.

    Patrick - by Fragrances of Ireland. One of the few niche lines that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. Beautiful fougere in the tradition of Worth for men. Has a well blended pine note that smells great, and a good dried grass/hay accord in the heart and base.

    Guerlain Vetiver - excellent citrus and vetiver, with a mild woodsy drydown. very classy green. good vetiver scent as well.

    Nobile - by Gucci. Good powdery green fougere, with some similarities to Tsar. Not my favorite but it's a quality scent, very well made, and definitely green. Discontinued and a little hard to find at a good price, but worth it if you can grab a bottle.

    Truth for Men - the only CK scent I've ever liked, second to Obsession for Men. It's a lovely green melon scent, but it does have bad sillage and longevity. It's forgivable though because the smell is so nice.

    Polo - last but not least. Sure you've already tried it, but if not, it's a given.

    Good luck!
    Wow! Now THIS is a NICE contribution! Congrats and Thanks!

    Mario Valentino's Ocean Rain deserves a mention in this thread. It's a little known, but excellent green scent created by Edmond Roudnitska. Too bad it's discontinued. If you find a bottle, jump on it!

    These are two of my favorite green fragrances. I will eventually purchase a bottle of High Line, but since the SA's at Saks are always do nice to me, they gave me 5 samples of it, so it will last a while longer.

    If you are a fan of High Line, it is a bit pricey, but you owe it to yourself to try the body wash. It is great.

    I'm one of those that finds that the only green thing a person Green Irish Tweed is in the name. Violet leaf does not smell green to me.

    My greenest goes to Eau de Lierre and French Lover. Must be the angelica.

    I don't think this one has been mentioned: Bulgari pour Homme Extreme

    It's not a fresh green, but I would describe it as a "weedy" green. It reminds me of mid-summer when all the plants, including all the nasty weeds, are at their full glory. Great performance with this one too.

    Similar to Eutpoie no 9. Also recommend un jardin en Meditereanee and Wind Wood.

    My favorite is Bandit. Not only is it my favorite green, it's my favorite scent of all. I don;t wear all the time, but I can't be without it. I even have a tiny .25oz parfum, on may night table. Sometimes, I'll dab a little on my wrist before bed. It's dries down to a green breeze, that reminds me of summer.

    My next is Jean Louis Scherrer. An oakmoss bomb! Green, damp and forest like, but in rather clean way.

    Carven Vetiver. Lemons, and grass. I love the grassy feel of this one. Again, it's like summer. More of a dry, open meadow scent for me.

    There are other greens I like, but too many to mention. It has become my favorite group in the past year, or so.

    One I currently enjoy is L’eau de parfum #3 Green, green and green by Miller et Bertaux.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.
