Wishing a very happy St. Patrick’s Day to all of you wonderful Posse folks!! Seeing all the green this weekend and today, plus shots of the celebratory green Chicago River, has me wanting to sniff some leafy scents.
When you think of green scents, what do you immediately think of? It’s different for everyone, but I’d say Balmain’s Vent Vert, Chanel No. 19, and Carven’s Ma Griffe are likely near the top of the list. I also think of my old favorites, the original Gucci Envy (it even had green juice) and Shiseido’s Inoui. Estee Lauder’s Aliage, Clinique’s Calyx, and Martin Margiela’s Untitled also come to mind.
And as a new season is right around the corner for some of us (a few of us have already experienced a taste), the galbanum-heavy scents remind us that hope springs eternal, and spring cannot get here fast enough. Especially considering the winter many of you have had.
It’s still a little too chilly here in my neck of the woods to go totally green; a late winter cold snap has me still reaching for my warm and cozy vanilla, incense and coffee scents. But I did layer Bond No. 9’s coffee-rich New Haarlem with a wee dab of their citrus-y Little Italy for a fresher bout of yummy comfort. But later in the week, when we warm up more, I’ll be pulling out my little bit of Envy, Untitled and No. 19 for a green fix.
What are your favorite greenies to wear? Can’t wait to see what your loves are!
