Let's Love Green Notes this St. Patrick's Day

As St. Patrick's Day approaches, it's the perfect time to explore the lush and vibrant world of green notes in perfumery. Just as the Emerald Isle is famed for its verdant landscapes, green notes in Valley of Roses perfume evoke the freshness of nature and the vitality of springtime. From crisp leaves to dewy grass, these fragrances capture the essence of renewal and growth.

One of the most beloved green notes in perfumery is that of freshly-cut grass. Reminiscent of a morning stroll through a meadow, this scent adds a lively and invigorating touch to any fragrance composition. Paired with citrus or floral accords, it creates a sense of sunshine and optimism, perfect for ushering in the season of rebirth. Experience this freshness in #055 inspired by Chance Eau Fraiche  where greeny freshness meets iconic timelessness 

Another classic green note is that of aromatic herbs, such as basil, mint, and rosemary. These ingredients lend a herbal and aromatic quality to perfumes, evoking images of sun-drenched gardens and bustling marketplaces. Whether used as a subtle accent or as the focal point of a fragrance, herbal notes bring a sense of vitality and vitality to any scent. If herb vibes are your jam then #027 Inspired by AQUA ALLEGORIA - MANDARIN BASILIC will be your bread! We always recommend this perfume in store and we have you all swooning over it.

For those seeking a more sophisticated and refined green fragrance, notes such as vetiver and oakmoss offer a deeper and more complex olfactory experience. With their earthy and mossy undertones, they evoke the tranquility of a shaded forest glen, inviting wearers to lose themselves in the beauty of the natural world. #352 Inspired by Guicci Bamboo is certainly one to try here. I always describe it as a 'don't go chasing waterfalls' or forest fairy perfume.

Whether you're celebrating St. Patrick's Day or simply looking to embrace the freshness of spring, green notes in perfume offer a delightful olfactory journey. So why not treat yourself to a fragrance that captures the essence of renewal and growth at Valley of Roses? After all, there's no better way to welcome the season ahead than with a spritz of something green and glorious.
