    Very subjective, but three I enjoy are:

    Eau de Campagne
    Nu Green
    Mon Numero #9

    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.

    Big plus for:

    • No.19.

    Adding:

    • Chanel's Bel Respiro.
    • Cartier's L'Heure Vertueuse. One of the greenest scents I know. It has an overdose of cis-3-hexenol (leaf alcohol) and for that reason, smells just like cut grass and crushed leaves. It's bolstered by a host of other green notes, probably including Stemone (very powerful, green). Oh, there's some lavender thrown in too. If you didn't quite get that it was a green scent, the juice is green, too. And it has a punny name playing on its green credentials.

  33. #33

    Default Re: What are the 3 best GREEN fragrances?

    Vent Vert and Bandit always come to mind for me. Also No. 19, of course. And don't forget Chamade, though that hovers halfway between green and yellow, if we're getting all synaesthetic about it.

    Well I have Tom Ford Italian Cypress on my wrist and it smells quite green to me. It reminds me of Guerlain L'Eau (good quality spring/summer greeny scent). I guess it's the cypress? I don't know my notes. It smells very good, I'm impressed so far (I've had it on a whole 3 minutes).

    Agreed.
    Those mentioned are aquatics.

    Green scents are herbal/sappy/forest types.

    My one favorite spring green scent as of right now is PG Bois Blonds. It smells so natural to me. But, I have a few more greens coming in from LuckyScent to test so we will see what wins out for me.

    It may not be green but I would never classify GIT as an aquatic. I love GIT and, generally speaking, despise aquatics.

    Default Re: What are the 3 best GREEN fragrances?

    I agree Calidude; there isn't a greenness the evokes the color per se, but I consider it a green fragrance as well. Just like Pleasures isn't inherently green in terms of evoking color, but I do get the green musky vibe in both. Eternity, Kiton Men, Paul Smith Man, Paul Smith Story, etc, all evoke the fresh crisp green, while others like Penhaligons English Fern reflect the vegetal side of green, which I don't enjoy. I also don't enjoy fig prominent scents in general.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    I think it's a long, long way from anything green like cut grass or leaves. In general, people tend to very influenced by the names of fragrances and the colour of the juice itself.

    Campare it to Hermes un Jardin en Mediterranee or Jo Malone Wild fig fig and Cassis. They have very specific, strong green, sappy notes. GIT is far more abstract in it's construction - very impressive but definitely not green IMO..
