    Default Fresh Green/Tree Fragrance

    Hey everyone,

    I'm looking to buy cologne for a few of my friends as graduation presents, and one of them said he once smelled something like "fresh trees" and really liked it.

    So, please let me know of what you recommend for fragrances that fit this description. My price range isn't very high, under $50, so keep that in mind (no Creed stuff). Thanks!

    Story by Paul Smith - One is initially treated to a blast of a lemony and slightly peppery, citric accord. The herbal and faintly woody aspects of ivy leaf intrude upon and commingle with this sparkling citrus, providing a crisp, leafy opening, which saunters to the awaiting middle. Here, in the heart, a floral potion from the sweet jasmine and cardboard-like mustiness of rose leaf tempers the jarring opening, and transitions to the welcoming base. An altering melange of grass-like and clean vetiver, white musk, with its laundered-linen illusion, as well as a rugged, mineral amber coalesce. With an errant metallic and faintly minty something fluttering about, the dry woodiness of cedar squires the cleanly mix to a refreshing drydown. This light and fresh composition has good projection and longevity, and will bloom in the spring, summer and fall. A very nice fragrance which can be had rather inexpensively.

    Angeliques Sous La Pluie - Fresh, dewy, cool evergreen forest in the morning. Bois D'Orage smells like a peppery, more barky/masculine version of Angeliques Sous La Pluie.

    Sisley Eau De Campagne - The smell of green leaves being torn up in the middle of a grassy field, near an herb/tomato garden.

    If you're looking for a very dark masculine take on "tree" especially "Evergreen tree", try Creed's Epicea and L'Artisan's Fou D'Absinthe.

    If Sisley's Eau De Campagne or either Malle doesn't fit the bill, other great leafy/tree/grass green scents are:

    Creed's Original Vetiver
    Mugler Cologne
    Frank Los Angeles
    L'Artisan Parfum De Feuilles
    L'Artisan navegar
    Paul Smith Story
    Marc Jacobs Bang
    Dominguez Vetiver Hombre

    ^Those are all very good greens.

    The cheapie, which ain't half bad, is Pino Sylvestre, which is clearly coniferous. If you're wanting something that doesn't smell like a needle-bearing evergreen, but more like a generic "fresh tree", I don't have any idea what that smells like.

    I think some posters missed that $50 price point....

    Pino Sylvestre was about $8 when I bought it and Bang is at TJ Maxx for under $50 right now.

    Yatagan is around $30 but a challenging scent for some.

    How about something from the L'Occitane Line? Good quality around 40-45?

    Calvin Klein's Truth might work. It is a very wet, lush green fragrance that has a "canopy tree accord" in the notes. It's very refreshing & smells like a wet forest and wet grass. I think it's been discontinued, but it can still be found cheaply online & occasionally at discounters. (I bought mine for $16 at Ross about 6 months ago).

    Pino Sylvestre - Goes back to the 1950's (not talked about much anymore) and is really a nice fresh frag. You could cover 3 of your friends for under $50 !!!!!

    As others have said, many older masculines have a forest vibe. They may not be easy to find, but when found they tend to be cheap. I recently bought Krizia Uomo from perfumania.com for, if I remember correctly, $20; it's an Italian green-herbal-woody, elegant but relaxed.

    And another vote for Pino Silvestre, piney, good, and as cheap as it gets. Yatagan is another marvel that can be had from discounter for under $50 (regular price is $90); however, in addition to woods and green, there is also an animalic note - many like it, but many don't.

    Aspen is very inexpensive and smells piney. Jacomo Green is also very inexpensive and a very underrated green grassy fragrance.

    I agree with Pino Sylvestre.

    Diptyque l'Ombre dans l'Eau - this really needs to be mentioned, it's like walking through a forest after heavy rainfall.

    Sorry I missed the $50 price point. These should be available at discounters or online for around $50 or less.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I ordered a bottle of Pino Sylvestre since it's so cheap, and got a sample of Mugler Cologne. I'll let you know how much my friend likes these two.
