    Question Looking for Best Cucumber and Best Tomato / Tomato Leaf and Fresh Grass Fragrances......?

    I have already tried Eau de Champagne from Sisley...... and the Marc Jacobs Cologne...... (that is supposed to resemble cucumber), so I would prefer to hear about others on offer.
    I´m looking for fragrances that really capture the fresh essences of these plants/vegetables.
    Thanks for your advice.

    From the designer range, I can think of Lacoste Essesntial which has a tomato leaf vibe. Carolina Herrera 212 also has a fresh cut grass opening.

    Annick Goutal has a fragrance that fits your requirements. Do a search (can't remember the name).

    JOOP! What about Adam - as you have already tried Eau de Campagne- Unfortunately it is going to be difficult to find it, as it is discontinued

    Bath and Body Works' Cucumber Melon... just kidding

    I enjoy Premier Figuier for its grassy opening, but your MJ is in the same vein. A lot of people here prefer Phylosykos over the PF, both are fig leaf based scents.

    Do yourself a favor - smell Memory of Kindness by CB I Hate Perfume. It's tomato leaf in a bottle.

    I totally agree-- in fact, that was what the perfumer intended it to smell like, reminiscing when he was a young boy playing in his aunt's garden, I believe.

    You must also try Diptyque L'Ombre Dans L'Eau which smells strongly of tomato leaf/stem (even though the notes are Bulgarian rose and blackcurrant leaf, the effect is one of tomato leaf.) I prefer the Diptyque over the CBIHP as to me it is a more finished scent.

    2nd best Tomato leaf scent behind Sisley's Eau De Campagne, is L'Artisan's unheralded Parfum De Fueilles.

    It's minty, garden-y, full of fresh cut grass and a clear image of a fresh growing herb and tomato garden

    The stars are:

    Leafy Mint
    Fresh Cut Grass
    Tomato Leaf
    Torn Basil Leaf
    Galbanum
    White musk

    Has lots of green, I think tomato leaf is in any of Ellenas gardens. + it has a significant melon note - which imo ressembles cucumbers.

    A cheapie for tomato leaves is Claiborne Sport by Liz Claiborne. Also, for fresh grass and a really great overall "green" vibe, check out Calvin Klein's Truth for men. I think it's discontinued now, but can still be found online.

    The best tomato leaf I've come across is l'uomo by Trussardi. A strong fragrance the opening is balsamic and the tomato leaf stays right through. This is a very different animal to Uomo by Trussardi.

    Maybe Demeter Tomato and Demeter Grass? These are not the projection killers and quite hard to get in Europe, but worth giving a shot and can as well be used as room sprays.

    This is a good suggestion - and the reason cucumber and melon are so close is that, both in nature and in perfumery, the key chemical you are smelling is the same (trans-2-cis-6-nonadienal) which is detectable by humans at incredibly low concentrations. It’s in quite a few vegetable scents and also, interestingly enough, in violet and some other flower scents.

    I have a couple of cucumber-based scents in my range as it’s one of my favourites (though neither is on the website yet) one is Sativus - named from Cucumis sativus - it’s my interpretation of the scent of the fresh-cut vegetable - prices on that are the same as my Fruit Wood. The other is Hendricks - designed to recall the scent of a fresh Martini, made with a certain unusual gin and garnished with a slice of fresh cucumber. Pricing is the same as my Gin & Lime range. Drop me a mail if you’d like a sample.

    On tomato leaf I don’t think you can beat the CB Memory of Kindness, so I have not tried.

    What About Adam? - makes me feel like I'm out among the tomatoes in the vegetable garden. The scent is slightly lacking though, as it requires a few insecticide notes to make the experience complete.

    I can't really distinguish the tomato leaf note in Halston Unbound.

    Even though there is no cucumber note listed for Issey Blue, my wife is adamant that I smell like cucumbers (or cucumber salad) whenever I wear it.

    Totally agree here. I would add CK Truth for that fresh grass/cucumber vibe.
    "I love fragrances because they provide a sheer endless variety: there is a scent for every occasion, mood or feeling. Standing before my collection in the morning matching a perfume to my needs is one of the most enjoyable things in my day". I don't want to miss that

    For cucumber, I think Polo Blue is really a standout. For a garden vegatable vibe, Hermes Eau deo Gentiane Blance might be the ticket.

    Does Parfum de feuilles smell anything like L'eau de l'artisan since most room sprays are a pendant to one of their parfums? Also Métaboles by Ys Uzac has a tomato leaf note, with the slightest touch of black pepper, mint and licorice the effect is quite longlasting. D'orsay has a room spray and a candle called Feuilles de tomate.

    I tried Eau D'Italie by Eau d'Italie the other day and couln't get Sisley's Eau De Campagne out of my mind. As for actual tomato and cucmber I'm not sure, but a great deal of the vegetable patch is there, as it is with Jardin du Poet, which I think I prefer (or is it the name I prefer?)

    L'Eau De L'Artisan is similar, but more soft/powdery, with a touch of "Fruit smoothie". Parfum De Feuilles is much more zesty and grassy. A clear cut mint, tomato leaf, basil, and fresh cut grass and galbanum scent.

    I just tried a very realistic tomato leaves scent a few days ago but I can't remember what it was called.

    You have to be in the right mood to wear it.
