The smells of cut grass, hay and the field after the rain remind you of carefree childhood and summer and, of course, lift your spirits. Not for nothing perfumers use notes of leaves of various plants in their compositions, usually diluting them with citrus accords. Such fragrances are most often included in the selective collections and are in demand in the spring and summer period. It is interesting that they are chosen regardless of gender, occupation and temperament – it seems that the “green” fragrances suit absolutely everyone. We selected new and bestsellers that are definitely worth paying attention to.
Untitled, Maison Martin Margiela
When creating Untitled, Maison Martin Margiela perfumers looked for inspiration in the bouquet of herbs after the rain. In the center of the composition is the note of rare galbanum plant, which is perfectly shaded by the chords of mastic wood and frankincense. It also has notes of pistachio, almond, jasmine, cedar and musk. Incredible combination!
In 2020 Byredo presented Unnamed fragrance in honor of its 10th anniversary. The creators have given the customers the freedom of choice. Everyone can call the fragrance what he/she wants. But we would label it by such definitions as “Freedom” or “Lightness”. The fragrance opens with icy notes of gin, then it is joined by accords of green thickets of iris, violet and moss. Fresh and unusual Unnamed is perfect for rainy spring and hot summer.
Memoire d’une Odeur, Gucci
The key note of Memoire d’une Odeur is chamomile. It is interesting that the Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele personally chose this flower for the perfume. The perfumers diluted chamomile with delicate petals of jasmine, sensual musk, warm sandalwood, airy cedar and sweet vanilla. The fragrance associates with a field after rain.
Cristalle Eau Verte, Chanel
“Breath of nature, trembling leaves, crystal rays of light” – describes Cristalle Eau Verte, Chanel. The inspiration for its creation was the love of Gabrielle Chanel for outdoor life. The composition starts with citrus notes and gradually adds the chords of soft magnolia, jasmine and iris. 100 rubles.
Un Jardin sur le Toit, Hermes
A hidden garden in the center of Paris has inspired perfumers to create Un Jardin sur le Toit, Hermes. The composition consists of the notes of apple, pear, magnolia and wild herbs. The fragrance is incredibly light, but at the same time bright and memorable.
As the name suggests, the main note of Vetyverio, Diptyque, is vetiver. And in this flavor it has a high concentration of 25%! Also added to the composition are chords of grapefruit, rose, and carrot fraiche. It’s a perfect mix for fans of fresh and invigorating fragrances.
Bottega Veneta, Bottega Veneta
Bottega Veneta fragrance is the “freshness of meadows and warm velvety earth, which is complemented by exquisite accents of freshly cut hay, flowers and wood”. The poetic description of the perfume is emphasized by an unusual combination of notes: bergamot, pink pepper, jasmine, oak moss and patchouli leaf.
