    Genre: Green

    Heeley’s Menthe Fraîche is brilliant and disappointing in equal measure. The opening salvo is terrific: one of the few interpretations of the title note to avoid any suggestion of mouthwash, cough drops, or toothpaste,* capturing instead the leafy, astringent, and savory qualities of mint.

    Unfortunately the mint effect is, quite literally, a flash of brilliance. It’s magnificent while it endures, but gone within minutes. The mild clean musk skin scent that remains in its wake does nothing for me.

    I love James Heeley and his great ability to put together really simple, linear, sound, perfectly-balanced fragrances, but this one smells just a hint better than Brooklyn Mint chewing-gums to me.

    Fresh Mint

    I cannot imagine doing a mint note any better than the one in this Heeley. It's neither toothpasty or overly leafy/herbal (e.g Roadster).  I reach for this all the time, though I tend to wear it only casually.

    This is a mint and tea scent with the signature smooth, almost buttery Heeley signature base. The opening is nice and giddy with mint being the predominant feature. It dries down rather quickly giving way to mostly tea, strongly resembling L'Occitane's The Vert, which is a lot less expensive.

    When I saw "mint" I worried that it would be cheap imitation mint like toothpaste or mouthwash. I was pleasantly surprised to find it was very natural/organic smelling mint. The down-side is similar to all other Heeley's I have tried. Like Penhaligon's The opening sits politely on your skin, and doesn't project or have longevity. I described one of Heeley's other fragrances as "fragrance snack" not meant to fill you up all day.

    After an impressive top with rubbed vinyl and grassy vegetal tones, this quickly went into almost pure fresh mint. Reached its mild woodsy base within an hour and had the longevity of a cologne splash. It’s natural alright, but also bit of a simpleton. I prefer my mint with more of a twist and will stick with the much more affordable AA Herba Fresca.
