It may be perfectly normal to spot particular fruits in a fragrance - be it lemon, pear or raspberry - but how about vegetable ones? We’re talking everything from carrot seeds, to rhubarb, and even green capsicum makes an appearance. No, we’re not pulling your leg… these veggie-based perfumes are ones to watch. Add to cart now.
Tom Ford Noir De Noir EDP
Opening notes of black truffle, saffron and black rose are harmoniously balanced with vanilla, patchouli and oud wood. The result? A brilliantly rich, spicy and sweet spritz that’s a must have in any fragrance wardrobe.
Jo Malone Nutmeg & Ginger Cologne
As Jo Malone’s first fragrance, it’s an absolute classic. You’ll find three notes in this simple spritz - ginger, nutmeg and sandalwood; wear this spicy scent on its own, or layer it under another fruity floral fragrance for added depth.

Perfect to pair with a white t-shirt and jeans, this light, airy spray carries a blend of green edamame, lily of the valley and cedarwood that’s totally easy to wear, and one you won’t get sick of.
Comme des Garcons Amazingreen EDP
This uniquely aromatic blend from the Japanese fashion house carries notes of capsicum, palm tree leaves, coriander seeds and white musk that smells unusual from the bottle, but seriously pretty once it settles on skin.

What happens when you combine unique notes of carrot seeds, coriander, white magnolia and resin? A surprisingly light and sunny floral spritz that’s bursting with playful personality, and one that you’ll love to wear all year round.

There’s so much more to this zingy fragrance than green tea - throughout the day, you’ll pick up on notes of rhubarb, fennel, crisp celery spice, as well as musk, amber and jasmine for a touch of sweetness.
Etat Libre d’Orange Like This
You’ll discover notes of pumpkin, tangerine and vetiver inside this gorgeous scent created by Parisian brand Etat Libre d’Orange, who has made waves in just the eight years it has been established.
