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!

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!
