Green Days: Fragrances For Spring

With the first signs of spring, we turn to the color green. In fact for 2017 Pantone© the leading color authority in the world has chosen Greenery© as the Color of The Year. The aromas of fresh herbs, meadow grass, and the first flowers begin to blossom in the garden.  Whether bright and leafy, clean and crisp or dark and earthy, there is a green scent for everyone.  Green scents cross gender lines and work beautifully on both men and women.

Galbanum

Go Galbanum: Since ancient days the intensely green, complex smell of galbanum has been associated with springtime rites.  Galbanum is a linchpin note in modern and classic perfumery.

In 1947, the first woman perfumer, Germaine Cellier created the verdant Balmain Vent Vert, with its top note of galbanum piercing a heart of breath taking florally.  The modern version was created by another female perfumer, Nathalie Feisthauer, who composes a green wind that is a burst of  greens – crushed stems, leaves, cut grass, and sage. Musk and florals interweave with lime and Vent Vert feels like a soft, gentle spring breeze.

Issey Miyake  A Scent  softens the green notes of galbanum with lemon and a garland of leafy notes. Translucent iris and fragrant hyacinth is feminine and light.  A Scent is as fresh as a day spent outdoors.

Vetiver

Grass RootsVetiver: In its natural habitat of moist riverbanks the long, deep roots of vetiver grass reach into the soil gathering earthy green scents that are also woody, smoky, or even floral. There are tales of bathing in vetiver to attract love and/or sex. We recommend that all our customers pour it on.

 Guerlain Vetiver: According to our sources, the original formula hasn’t been changed substantially since its debut in 1961.  Marketed as a men’s scent the smoky earthy green roots with a dash of citrus is beautiful on a woman, fresh and fantastic.

Carven Vetiver is a bright sunny fragrance bursting with bergamot and orange and streaked with clean woods. Perfect for Spring when the weather is warming and the nights are chilly.

The Wearing of the Green: March 17 is St. Patrick’s Day.  A day when everyone is Irish, the streets are painted green, rivers are dyed green and perfume lovers are sure to be wafting green.  

Lads and Lassies it’s time to  get out your Green Irish Tweed by Creed, a  sporty fougere, the color of a shamrock  with citrus and violet leaves that brightens your day, and that’s no blarney.
