If you like natural smelling, than besides Parfum d'Empire, another house I really enjoy is Maria Candida Gentile.
- Gentile, Very nice Basil opening, with a green soapy dry down, and very natural.
- Finisterre, green fennel and pine by the sea. I don't like aquatics, and love this. If aquatic puts you off then Kitrea is a honey green.
Pierre Guillaume also has quite a few greens, naturalistic, but not as truly natural as the aforementioned houses.
- Papyrus de Ciane is greenery that dries down to green incense, for me a better, more masculine leaning Synthetic Jungle.
- Morning in Tipasa is a pine infused honey that wears like a light amber.
I'm on a perpetual green hunt, and those are some I've run across lately and enjoyed. I just picked up bottles of the two MCGs, and if you time it right you can get great deal direct from the house. I picked up all the samples when she had a 40% off samples deal, then the bottles when she had a Mother's Day weekend special.
Edit: I'm just testing PG Komorebi, and though it's only a first wearing, this has soared to one of the better greens I've tried.
The note listing doesn't really convey this, but it takes me straight back to being home in Southern California. It must be the Reseda giving it a natural greenness, it's like walking down a tree lined path, with incense burning nearby. A lovely, slightly powdery green, reminiscent of Japanese incense. It also reminds me of the dry down of Anteaus, but no animal undertones, it's all fresh and airy. Quite an effect.
I'll give it another wearing later in the week, but right now, it's going very high up on the to buy list.
I will check it out
I don’t own it but have smelled it. It is very nice IMO. RODRIGO FLORES-ROUX is behind it. Hawthorne is out of stock but Nordstrom has it.
Thank you so much for sharing and I really apologize for my late responseThis may be my favorite genre!
