    Default Best Green fragrances?

    I ordered a sample of Green Valley last week and have been absolutely in love with it. It's not very easy to find at a decent price though, so I will have to wait a bit. Are there any other fragrances that have a nice lush green vibe to them? Thanks!

    I like Bleecker Street. It's very green, but has some interesting facets that make it more than just a green scent. There's an element of blueberry, a watery quality, and actually a warm spicy component that emerges in the late-mid to dry down.

    Lavender Palm has a lovely leafy-green structure.
    Givenchy Insense has a powerfully green smell, to me, of the fresh-cut stems of flowers.

    Diptyque Philosykos EDP - The greenest fragrance that I've ever encountered. It's like breaking open a little green tree branch in the spring.

    I would contribute Lubin Itasca, with the forest-type of green.

    Otherwise, FM Bois D'Orage for the herbaceous type of green.

    This is a very interesting study of what we perceive as "green". Of course, there's the classic No. 19, but I would have never considered the frequently-mentioned vetiver fragrances as green.

    There's a lot of references to evergreen scents, which I appreciate, but this group, along with vetivers and the fresh-cut stem scents that I mentioned, make me wonder how many categories of green exist.

    Is Chanel No. 19 still worth getting in its current formulation? (I'm realizing I like galbanum after sampling Opus VII.)

    I know it has violet lead as a note, but never smells green to me. Maybe it's just me though

    Eau de Lierre for a leafy (ivy) green scent with light woods and what seems like a touch of tobacco (to my nose at least).

    I would agree with Horns that this is an interesting study in what people consider 'green'. To me, green is leafy green whether it is herbal green like tomato leaf, basil, and rosemary, fresh tree leaf green like pettigrain, or even grassy green like cis-3-hexanal. To be called a 'green' fragrance it needs to be predominantly those with other notes as support.

    Some good greens:

    CdG Amazingreen
    Kenzo L'Eau 2 Kenzo pour homme- very tomato leaf citrus. It doesn't last long, but the green is great.
    CK Truth for Men- the original green fragrance

    thanks

    I just thought of two other good greens.

    Bond No. 9's Central Park. One of the better Bonds imo. It has a plenty of basil, along with other green notes. It's fresh and easy to wear. Perfect for Spring and Summer. Like most Bonds, it's very long lasting.

    Lorenzo Villoresi's Yerbamate. It's probably one of the most unique greens out there. It's hard to describe. But beware, there is a heavy dose of powder in the base. If your a powder hater, chances are you won't care for it.
