    Very subjective, but three I enjoy are:

    Eau de Campagne
    Nu Green
    Mon Numero #9

    (2681)

    I was just reading up on green fragrances last night. There are a ton of great suggestions in these threads:

    Among three "green" favorites of mine are: Knize Forest. Guy Laroche Horizon, Loewe para Hombre (admittedly, the latter not blatantly nor pungently green, but still including some well-balanced and classy green notes).

    I'm an absolute green fiend, so I'll be interested to see who logs on to this thread.

    I just procured some Vintage Polo Green for my husband. We both like this even though some are dead set against it. To each his own.

    I also like Aramis but an ex-boyfriend wore it so that's out. But I love Azureé which is the sister scent. Many men like it, too. It's an amazingly good, little known scent for $40.

    I also just discovered Vintage Givenchy Gentleman and found it warm, herbal and 'tweedy'. A great classic frag that will make you feel smart.

    Vintage Polo Green is so much better than the reformulated version! I wore Polo Green for many years, starting in high school in the 80's and I just can't stand to wear the reform. I have a vintage bottle that is treasured in my collection and I love to indulge in wearing it on occasion.

    GIT is an obvious answer, though I think Creed Himalaya is a better version of the same idea.

    GIT is a little overbearing for me, were as Himalaya has that ginger note to round out the "bag of lawn clippings" thing I don't love in GIT.

    An outside contender might be Tom Ford Grey Vetiver, which has a green note taken to a laser focus but may not be everyone's cup of tea.

    I love green, and it's hard to pick three, but if forced, right now I'd say:
    Paco Rabanne Metal: fresh green, with clean flowers and a strange, almost oily drydown
    Bandit: not exactly green per se, it's a leather with a sharp green blast
    vintage Vent Vert: greenest, bitterest galbanum moving into a beautiful jasmine-rose. Sadly, only vintage, and it's too expensive right now.

    Came in to post these 3, although I still need to sample No. 19.
    I think Sel de Vetiver is wonderful, but not explicitly green enough for my tastes.
