Try Diptyque Philosykos. Very very green in scent.
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.
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.
Ninfeo Mio top actually
and may be Fou d'Absinthe
Guy Laroche Horizon, Guerlain Vetiver
To me Paco Rabanne PH is green

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.
Ô de Lancôme, Eau Sauvage, Eau de Campagne, Un Jardin Sur Le Toit, Chanel N°19.
Perry Ellis 360 starts off a bit fruity but dries down very green.
hugo by hugo boss
Creed's Green Valley
Bond No. 9 Eau de New York
Smells like freshly cut grass to my nose.
+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.

Bosque- humiecki & graef

Filles en Aguilles - Serge Lutens (more balsamic/resinous)
ehm...there's also a fragrance from "Parfumerie Generale" which is very grassy-green...but I can't remember the name! Sorry, maybe some fellow member would help...
I would add "Sienne l'Hiver" by Eau D'Italie and "Eau de gentiane blanche" by Hermès and almost any Verbena-based fragrance
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..
Creed OG Vetiver
Plus 1 slumberhouse norne- for the deepest darkest forest of gnomes and trolls- it's simply a class apart but maybe not so everyday wearable
Nicolai Vie de Chateau Intense
Jacomo Silences- bitter dry green
A Scent Rescuer
Every great perfume deserves a good home
Seems I need to try that norne thing.
Montale Patchouli Leaves
@ SARIPATATES: Yes! that one! nice fragrance, really
Creed Selection Verte is one of my faves in this category.
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 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
These are some really green fragrances I like:
Le Prince Jardinier "Arboretum"
Hermès "Eau de Gentiane Blanche"
+1 on Dior's Granville....very nice well made green scent.
Another one for Chanel No. 19. Could easily be worn by a man.
Cheap, very good (see reviews), piny, herbal, mossy, strong, green and classic!
Go for: Irisch Moos
My Top 10 : (In no particular order)
- Dolce & Gabbana: Pour Homme (vintage)
- Paco Rabanne: Pour Homme (vintage)
- Loewe: Solo (Absoluto)
- Chanel: Antaeus
- Chanel: Egoïste
- MPG: Santal Noble
- Guerlain: Vetiver
- Amouage: Jubilation XXV
- Dior: Homme Intense
- YSL: Kouros (Fraicheur)
Kenzo Homme Boisee (aka Kenzo Woody) - Fresh, wet bamboo forest with citrus top notes.
Actually, all of the Kenzo frags I've smelled have had very pronounced green notes.

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.
Mirror mirror on the wall, who's the fairest of them all?
