Fragrances typically belong to one of nine fragrance families: Aromatic, Citrus, Floral, Fresh, Fruity, Gourmand, Green, Oriental and Woody. A Green fragrance is defined by its predominantly green character which is due to it containing earthy, leafy and vegetal notes, from grass and tea leaves to juniper and vetiver. Increasingly, there is overlap between the families of scent. Many modern-day perfumes, for example may contain ingredients or notes that allow them to be classified within more than one fragrance family: For instance, there are fresh-floral perfumes, aromatic-citrus toilettes and green-woody scents. Some notable green scents include Creed Green Irish Tweed, Byredo Green, Maison Martin Margiela Untitled and Frederic Malle Vetiver Extraordinaire.
