I've seen quite a few people complain about mint not being "done well", saying it may come across as toothpasty or synthetic. If you ask me about the mint in this I'll tell you not to worry, it's great.
It is so cool, fresh and simple and not synthetic-like. I could smell it on me but unfortunately just does not seem to last for long or project far.
To me, the top three notes are violet leaf at one, mint at two while bergamot comes in third. That is about all I can make out, those three and they make such a great trio.
Not expensive and well within reach for many just starting out and it's best for warmer weather.
For just seconds after it's sprayed on Paul Smith for Men tantalizes with an iconoclastic hint of licorice embedded among its citrus top notes, but all hopes collapse as the scent turns instead to a predictable fruity-green violet leaf fougère structure that's not too far removed from Cool Water and its ilk.
Boooooring, and not worth another keystroke.
Orange and sprightly! Not particularly masculine, rather more unisex. Very green and evocative of fresh cut grass. Peppery middle notes. Iris comes out in the base after dry down and is very minimal...that can be good or bad depending on one's tastes. Pleasant fragrance, inoffensive. Lasts 4-6 hours on skin.
A VERY SOLID DESIGNER green/fresh scent. the bergamot/basil opening is very potent but then the veviter and iris neutalize this to an amazing fresh outdoorsy wonder. great longevity and compliment getter. not a sexy scent, more casual and office friendly.
This is a beautiful fragrance. Very summery, but can be worn all year round. It smells really clean and doesnt really smell of anthing imparticular. However, I do agree with the guy talking about the freshy mown grass smell, that's the vibe it gives off. The longevity and projection isn't that great, I think Mr. Smith needs to be having words with Mr. Gaultier about that, but it's a nice fresh fragrance nonetheless.
