What Are "Green" Scents
The term “Green” can be confusing. What does “Green” even mean?
“Green” scents bring to mind the beauty of nature and the season of Spring, when nature is coming back to life, or Summertime, when everyone seems to be mowing their lawn every day. It can evoke the feeling of walking through a forest or garden. “Green” scents can be described as green, earthy, grassy, vegetal, herbal, or fresh, and sometimes chypre(sheep-ruh).
This category can describe your search for a summer or spring scent, smelling like nature, you want the essence of a forest on you, you like the smell of ‘outside’, something floral with a little something extra, something fresh but not too much citrus, etc.
