The best green and herby fragrances for the ‘plantita/tito’ in you

Sulking in isolation had most of us growing a green thumb, and we at Perfume Philippines are totally here for it! If you’re a newly converted plantita or plantito, don’t be surprised if you develop a newfound interest in herby and ‘natural’ fragrances. Most plant-lovers love smelling like freshly-cut greens!

Be it basil, tea, or lemongrass, ‘nature smells’ can be intoxicating. Even if you’re not particularly fond of growing philodendrons or dressing every corner of your house with a potted plant, you may still find these green and herby scents attractive by virtue of their freshness. Wear something new and give these plantita-friendly scents a try!
