    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.

    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.

    +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.

    Gucci Pour Homme II (tea tree scent)
    Creed Original Vetiver (green/grassy scent)
    Creed Green Irish Tweed (green/violets/pine-like)
    Creed Silver Mountain Water (tea tree scent)

    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..

    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.
