have been using channel cristalle eau vert for a long time and would like something new.

I like fresh/green scents. maybe a bit more of a floral note than the cristalle eau vert.

the perfume section overwhelmes me. which ones are worth trying?

I went way off piste this time and have Nina Ricci and it's really nice.
I'm usually a Bvlgari girl but wanted a change.
it's read and the bottle is apple shaped.
That's all I know.

[ nose]] Say what you like, get samples and a code for money off once chosen. Addictive.

If you find a scent you like you can always find out a good dupe for it.

I'm using Burberry Weekend at the moment ... for men. It's quite lemony but very fresh and light.

Chanel Chance Eau Fraiche, Dolce by Dolce and Gabanna - both very fresh and green. Marc Jacobs Daisy is green but a bit of sweetness in the scent too.

Hermes Un jardin sur le nil... my summer fave, very green!

Ooh me me me!

I love green, fresh scents. Currently I'm into tea based perfumes.

I love Maison Martin Margiela Green Tea Escape, also Untitled Eau, Francis Kurkidjan Acqua Universalis.

For a more floral scent try Creed Acqua Fiorentina, Penhaligon's Artemisia or Ellenisia, or Etro Viccolo Fiori.

I have Elizabeth Arden Green Tea but it's quite sharp and ozone-y.

I really want Atkinson's Posh on the Green.

Have a look at the reviews on

Clinique Calyx. I'm wearing it today, in fact.

My verdant favourites are Sisley's nettly Eau de Campagne, Dipthyqu's torn ivy Eau de Lierre and Chloe's rosy green Eau Fraîche by Chloe.

I have also worn Cristalle Eau Vert for a few years but this summer invested in some Tom Ford Mandarino Di Amalfi which is delicious (duty free!!)

ForSaleChesterDraws Mon 13-Jul-15 19:59:49

How about the Cristalle EDP or EDT? Or Ô de Lancôme!

Issey Miyake A Scent is gorgeously green and fresh. I get regular compliments when I wear it and its not very expensive. (NB not to be confused with L'Eau D'Issey which is totally different).

Burberry baby touch. I can't recommend it highly enough. I'm not sure it's in shops any more, I order it online. It is honestly just delightful. Not strong or overwhelming, very subtle with verbena and a touch of jasmine. It's beautiful. Very green and fresh.

Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet is a lovely light floral, not too sweet, or Clarin's Eau des Jardins is light and fresh too - both my summer favourites.

This year I have changed my summer perfume from Chanel Cristalle Eau Vert to Trussardi Donna.

Dkny is fresh and summery, and it's a bit old school but I'm loving tommy girl at the moment and cool waters!!
