Thus sometimes, the Cretan women, tender footed, dance in measure round the fair altar, crushing the fine bloom of the grass.
Grassy scents for your consideration:
    • Balmain Vent Vert
    • Tommy Hilfiger T Girl
    • CB I hate perfumes To See a Flower
    • Nasomatto Hindu Grass
    • Tauer Vetiver Dance
    • Demeter Firefly
    • Weil Bambou and antilope
    • Gap Grass (I haven’t tried this)
    • Annick Goutal Petite Cherie
    • And a grass scent that ‘de-stresses’ here
    • Marc Jacobs Grass
Other ideas?
