Don't worry about it though as long as you get the correct shade you should be OK.
It's as much an hint of green as coal is an hint of black.

And as pointed out, if Vert is Green, then it must be green

Vert means green
Amande means olive
But effect is a bit like saying white with a hint of blue or whatever colour. I would suspect your car is a silver metallic with a hint of grey, green and almond. As the metallic apsect of paint isn't classified as a colour but as an effect then the next most prominent colour of the mix is how it is usually classified.

I'm just suggesting that when you go looking for paint it may fall into a group which you least expect.

Na, just Noel as usual being disagreable and swearing Green is in fact Silver.

Think we have established the colour is Paint Code 190, Colour Name Vert Amande (Olive Green)

Judging from its formulation, it looks correct.

Hope that helps,
