Thread: Green banana

  1. #1

    Default Green banana

    Does anyone know of any scents which contain banana notes, especially green banana? I really enjoy this scent in "real life" and can see it performing nicely in a fragrance if well done.

    Any ideas?
    I send thee this sweet perfume a fragrance to the fragrant, as one would offer wine to the god of wine.

    Jean Patou Enjoy has a green banana note in it. It's a lovely fragrance, that's been on my wish list for some time.

    One more vote for Enjoy. For a ripe banana note try Sira des Indes.

    The greenest banana I can think of is Humiecki and Graef Eau Radieuse. Otherwise, if you're fine with ripe bananas you could give a chance to both Parfumerie Generale Felanilla and Creed Acier Aluminium.

    You can get most of the scent of green banana from just one chemical: cis-3-Hexenyl acetate, though alone itís not quite fruity enough, it is very green.

    This may sounds strange but the original Violetta di Parma by Borsari comes across as green bananas - on my skin . It's worth a sniff on skin to see what you think .

    This one. Smells JUST like a green banana, and believe me I know what a green banana smells like, my mom used to cook with them my entire childhood. This stuff isn't cheap or easy to find, but if that's the smell you're looking for, this is it.

    No, I don't care about gender.

    Thanks, as always, for the great suggestions.

    I went through my decant of it really fast. It's also very mint prominent, so anyone interested in this is going to need to like mint.

    First in Fragrance has it for sale: http://www.ausliebezumduft.de/humiec...adieuse-2.html
