As an olfactory ode to leprechauns and freshly-plucked clover, dab a spritz or two of these magically delightful green-themed perfumes found at Lucky – and beware: they attract unicorns.

Heeley Menthe Fraiche is an entrancing mint fragrance reminiscent of both Moroccan tea salons and the Irish countryside after a soft summer rain. Light, luscious, refreshing and complex, Menthe Fraiche is a bracing blend of cold and crisp mint, aromatic green tea, sweet sugar, fresh lotus leaves, musky white cedar and beautiful Sicilian bergamot. Perfect for St. Paddy’s Day and for working a spell into summer nights.

Perfumer Jean-Christophe Herault was inspired by nature with his Comme des Garcons masterpiece Amazing Green. This evokes the myriad aromas of a tropical jungle: rough-hewn underbrush, a flinty smell of something burning in the distance, the sharp scent of green peppers and oversized leaves, even minerals. It’s earthly and ethereal at the same time, which is part of its genius. Comprised of palm tree leaves, ivy leaves, green pepper, dew mist, jungle leaves, orris roots, coriander seeds, silex, gunpowder accord, white musk and vetiver, Amazing Green envelopes you in Mother Nature’s brightest emerald hues.

Visit for these and other green fragrances, and don’t forget that we’re all Irish for a day this March!
