    Default Good perfumes with strong green notes?

    Hi everyone,

    I'm really into natural smelling perfumes, particularly those with strong fresh green notes like pine, grass, leaves etc. And i know this sounds weird but i really like the smell of tea tree lol. It would be awesome if you guys could give some recommendations, or tell me about your favourite green perfume.

    Thanks

    Try Diptyque Philosykos. Very very green in scent.

    Granville (Dior) and Ninfeo Mio (Annick Goutal) might also be worth a look.

    It's green-floral, but I love Carillon Pour Un Ange's almost electrically bright green accord.

    In addition to the great suggestions, I'd add Paco Rabanne Metal, superfresh green floral; unfortunately hard to find. For green icy, you can check also Chanel Cristalle. And if you want something that contains only natural ingredients, there's Aveda Pureformance.

    Chanel no.19 in edt consentration, perhaps? Sharper, fresher, than the sweeter, more "rounded" edp. Green it is!

    Also, I hear that Diptyque's Eau de Lierre (edt) is very green, with ivy in the centre. Haven't tried it myself though.

    Eau de Lierre is indeed extremely green grassy. But it doesn't last long. In the Diptyque range, there's rather Ombre dans l'eau, which has perhaps the strongest green vegetal opening ever, though later it adds a sweet jammy note. I use the OdE shower gel, which is invigoratingly fresh.

    +1 for Chanel Cristalle, which is my cut grass perfume.

    Also, I've recently fallen for Ormonde Jayne's Tiare, which despite its name isn't very gardenia-ish, but is very green, like a softer and more forgiving version of Cristalle.

    I also love greens. I am trying out several and can suggest

    L'Artisan: Fleur de Liane - wet green
    Serge Lutens: Fille en Aiguilles - coniferous
    Frederic Malle: Angelique sous la pluie - angelica after rain..

    Doesn't get much stronger in terms of green notes. The juice literally looks like a shot of very dark wheatgrass. Note, you must love coniferous scents to appreciate this beautiful fragrance.

    You do, I'd purchase a sample pack from the Slumberhouse website. Josh at Slumberhouse has created himself an an American counterpart to Serge Lutens it would seem. Very long lasting potent scents here, most are off the wall, yet beautifully executed.

    Try:

    Debut by Delrae - Upon application, one is treated to a pleasant plume of vivacious lushness from green leaves along with sweet and fruity ylang-ylang wafting on a winsome cloud of bittersweetness furnished by bergamot and lime. Floating to the floral middle, cool verdancy dominates with the fresh, green lily-of-the-valley, slightly sweet and bitter linden blossom as well as light, semi-sweet cyclamen. Aldehydes enhance the brilliance of the florals; and indoles supply a faint inky underpinning. This alluring pas de trois meanders to the waiting base. Robust vetiver predominates the base with its scent of dried field grass and accompanying clean earth, wonderfully tempered by creamy sandalwood and warm, skin-like musk. An appealing dry down ensues. This airy and distinctive composition has very good longevity and sillage/projection - easy on the trigger is the catchphrase here.

    +1 on this. I have finally got a sample of this stuff and it is very green. I would even say it laughs in the face of OV and GIT, which are the green fragrances I initially suggested in this thread. Selection Verte is the way to go

    +1 for Serge Lutens Fille en Aiguilles - amazing, strong, resinous pine scent
    Premier Figuier by L'Artisan Parfumeur is also a really gorgeous fresh green perfume, albeit one that settles into a sweeter, fruitier dry-down on my skin

    I think Mazzolari Mazzolari is a very »green« fragrance. However, it has been attributed to smell synthetic and chemical, the exact opposite of natural. While I see where this is coming from I have no objections against this fragrance, other than that it behaves very shy on my skin.
