    Default Help me find: Modern, Green, Masculine fragrance

    I am craving a very green, dry, not too aromatic but leaning towards woody, sturdy, masculine and most importantly, smells modern.

    What can you think ok?

    Though it gets a lot of stick, I'd say Creed Viking actually fits this description rather well. Might be worth sampling.

    This or the very similar Comme des Garcons Monocle Series: Laurel would be good choices. Vetiver Extraordinaire from Malle would also fit the bill.

    Grudgingly -- I'd have to recommend Green Irish Tweed or Polo for a cheaper option

    French Lover came to mind for me too. Too bad the Malles got so expensive though.

    Patrick and French Lover are both good for what you're looking for. But Polo Green by RL is hard to beat

    Mediterranean Neroli by Ermenegildo Zegna.

    But having been recently reacquainted with the vintage I do agree RL Polo has aged pretty well.

    In mainstream, Givenchy Insense was like that, but it has been discontinued.

    In niche/more expensive, I second Eau de Campagne and add Piguet Bandit (leather, not woods).

    You could perhaps sample Corsica Furiosa by Parfum d'Empire

    I'd second Corsica Furiosa and Eau de Campagne, and add Baime, Jardins de Kerylos, and perhaps the new Green Water.

    Bond No 9 Great Jones - not exactly "modern", but a modern interpretation of Paco Rabanne Pour Homme. And it smells great.
