    I would also like to find similar scent.

    I will comment on some fragrances mentioned in this thread, that I own or sampled.

    Encre Noire - this one smells like dark grass, not exactly fresh and happy, but longevity is good. You may like it but its not fresh cut grass smell.

    Bois D'Orage - this is indeed very herbal and natural smelling. Longevity on my skin could be better (especially for prices tag which is more than 100 euros for 50ml bottle). Its not grass smell, but it has green vegetal vibe (especially on top)

    Yatagan - it is kinda green but also bit dirty. Not exactly clean green smell, its more like woody scent with lot of personality. For masculine guys only!

    Aqua Fahrenheit - I sampled it yesterday and still have some on my shirt. Its more like lighter version of original Fahrenheit. I like it but I would not call it green.

    Timbuktu - like encre noire, it has prominent vetiver note that is green, but there is more going on. IMO there is as much incense as vetiver. Its very unique and I would not blind buy it.

    I am surprised that nobody mentioned Mugler Cologne yet... top notes of Mugler Cologne for me is what I imagine to be fresh cut grass smell. Unfortunately its only top notes and it became more floral overtime.
    TOP 3 hot weather:

    1. Gucci Pour Homme II
    2. Lalique Encre Noire
    3. Creed Millesime Imperial


    TOP 3 cold weather:

    1. Dior Homme
    2. Eau Des Baux
    3. L'Instant de Guerlain Pour Homme Extreme

    Bvlgari Pour Homme Extreme - is absolutely what you seek.
    Dior Fahrenheit
    Lancome Hypnose Homme - to me has a bit of a haystack vibe. It doesn't get much love around here but I think it's a fine fragrance.

    I agree. Hypnose is a good one. A sleeper IMO.

    Fresh-cut grass for sure. Extremely green.

    There are some long lasting green notes in Amouage Memoir Man, Dior's Granville, and a few of the more sappy releases by slumberhouse.

    My favorite green is Jo Malone's Wild Fig and Cassis. I know, the line is not famous for longevity... but this release chugs on for a while. A similar greenery (fig note) is found in Byredo´s Pulp... but that one gets a bit syrupy sweet for my liking.

    Not for all but another good and long-lasting green (maybe too green... as it blends the dark forest with a minty brightness) is Tauer´s pentachord series: Verdant

    Something relatively inexpensive and not mentioned much here on BN is Lush's SMELL OF WEATHER TURNING...Amazing longevity and sillage and has the smell (to me) of fresh cut green grass after an afternoon rain storm...Smoky, grassy forest type scent....Has a slight MINT but not toothpaste mint, but its in there too...Very cool, calming and unique...its about 55 dollars online but I get compliments on it lots and people constantly ask me what I'm wearing....Its not for the "safe scent" folks though....Kind of challenging but not really....I love it

    The hardest part of fulfilling your search is the long lasting aspect. 2 green grassy and leafy scents are worth a try: Angelique Sous La Pluie and Jardin Sur Le Toit - but longevity may not be past 5 hours for these.

    A couple of greenies that last much longer but have more woods mixed in and are beautiful fragrances are: Frapin Paradis Pardu and Anat Fritz Original.

    Chez Bond passes the "freshness" test but fails on the "merciful price range" test I'm afraid..

    Gentiane Blanche. Green beyond belief. Unfortunately, I have a bottle.

    Freshly bent branches? Boudicca Wode (Scent) - I had this one, it smelled like you just bent back a sapling's branch, but in an appealing way. Fresh, green as all get out... with a very dry juniper and florals bringing up the rear.

    Heck, I miss it actually...

    +1 212 Men. This is what I was thinking as I was reading OP. I do however get a bit of a metallic note along with the "fresh green" notes, but it fits the request.

    Bvlgari pH Extreme came to mind first, this is a very grassy citrus scent with excellent longevity and projection. 212 & Philosykos are also great recommendations.

    Also may wanna check into the Un Jardin line from Hermes.

    I would also recommend bois d'orage/French lover from Frederic Malle.
    It starts Very much like fresh cut grass to me, but that does not stay ...
    Oriza legrand relique d'amour feels more like mossy stone to me.
    And oh how I'd love to smell "the smell of the weather turning" by lush. Heard good stuff about it.

    I find Givenchy's Insensé to have that green vibe to it. Also the opening of Aramis Havana. They both last a long time and neither will break the bank.

    My go-to grassy stuff is Comme des Garcons Vettiveru. Go crazy on the trigger with the stuff and it lasts forever, best part is...it's hard to over-spray.

    I'll have to try the Vettiveru. The longest lasting grassy vetiver scent I've tried to date is C&S Vetiver Vert.

    I agree that violet-laden fragrances can produce a fresh cut grass aroma. For that reason I strongly recommend you check out Paul Smith For Men (not PS Man which is heavy on incense). It is very green and fresh and last an entire work day on me. Projection is good for the first 3-4hr before it settles down but honestly that's plenty of time for most purposes. You don't want to be the guy with the loud cologne, especially since not everyone likes the smell of fresh cut grass. It's super cheap and easy to find. Check it out!
    Spring/Summer Rotation:

    Versace Pour Homme
    Kenzo Pour Homme (vintage)
    Dolce & Gabbana Pour Homme (vintage)
    D& G Masculine
    Christian Dior Dune
    Guerlain Homme (EDT)
    Bond No9 Riverside Drive

    If smelling good was a crime, I'd be serving a lifetime sentence....

    Let me address your follow-up questions very specifically....

    and does 212 men still leave scent trails after a while?
    Modern version of Polo green that you might like would be Tom Ford Italian Cypress. Everybody who smells it, immediately sees a more modern Polo green. STRONG. Downside? EXPENSIVE.

I don't want to still be loud past the 5 hour mark but I want solid sillage really looking forward to smelling it

    but I don't get what you meant there, isn't brisk like....fresh?
    Sounds like you might want to check out the new Encre Noire Sport.

    You would do great with 212 men its a safe blind buy and it is everything you said you want. Other fragrance might be Lacoste Essensial.
