    Default Olive leaf fragrance?

    Hi!

    I just recently bought this body wash from my local Target:

    http://amzn.com/B0073RSENI

    I really like its smell, which is green and citrusy in about equal measure, and was wondering if there is a masculine cologne that has this particular accord. According to the packaging, the body wash is supposed to have an "olive leaf" note in it, but I am not sure how exactly it corresponds to the smell of actual olive leaves.

    Thanks in advance.

    P.S. The smell of this body wash is nothing like the smell of olives (the fruit). Just pointing this out because there are older threads on BN where people have discussed frags that have the smell of olive fruit. That is not what I am looking for.

    Interesting, I'll try to smell it next time I am in a Target store. I have never noticed any particular smell emanating from the olive leaves in Italy, but then I didn't pay much attention.

    Ciel d'Airain was the closest I know of by Pierre Guillaume which has olive wood but no olive leaf.

    Does olive leaf smell like olive/olive oil? If so check out Vis et Honor by O`Driu.

    You can buy olive leaf extract from health food stores, has a bitter smell and tastes awful

    The Olive Branch by Lush/Gorilla Perfumes. The shower gel is particularly lovely, definitely unisex & has a long-lasting scent.
