Frothy green floral
Green is a compillation of green (duh) (Well it is not my fault they didn´t bleed to death thinking for a name) floral clean notes that somehow have a very warm, enveloping effect instead of being chilly and invigorating as i expected. Think more of new tendrils rather than dark forests.

Green smells very clean and there is nothing wrong with it. I mean, the ingredients don´t feel "chemical" at all, nevertheless i support the opinion that Green reminds of a very nice smelling home-care/body-care product. I quite enjoy shampoo-like perfumes if they are well done, so it is not an issue for me.

The fragance starts very grassy and sparkling and then it gets more delicate and sweeter. With the petitgrain i smell something like linden. It is green, but it oozes nectar too. The slight metallic buzz of violet leaves is mainly the responsible for Green´s green-ness, being softened by delicious honeysuckle, but also a light rose, closer to rosewater than to rose oil. As the fragance evolves, mild touches of bitterness from green almonds arise and along the calming tonka define a very confortable drydown, and never looses completely its leafy, spring-like nature.

Maybe because it smells so clean and foamy it is perfectly suitable both for women, men and i am thinking, it could be a great choice for children, because it has this innocent vibe (and in Spain at least we soak children in cologne) and absolutely not a shadow. Just loving tendrils, wild flowering vines and soap bubbles.

Strangely Appealing
I love the bright and crisp petit grain opening of Byredo GREEN. After a few minutes, the scent smells closer to an organic green cleaning product, but somehow it does not become a scrubber.

Am I being slowly indoctrinated into the "clean" perfumery movement? I have to wonder, because I do not really think that this smells like anything more than the scent added to such cleaning products. I would like to use this to clean my bathroom, but I also do not mind it on my skin.

I guess that I am ultimately conflicted about Byredo GREEN. I should not like it, but I sort of do... Would I pay $200+ to smell like this? In a word: No.

Soapy, imperial leather soapy. As clean as laundered money as green as Othello's jealousy. There's nothing remarkable or unremarkable here.
