Reviews of You Or Someone Like You

This isn't for me, but it's a good fragrance, albeit linear.

It contains three notes: roses, mint, herbs. What herbs? Who knows? But the rose is what really drives this scent. It somehow pulls off being unisex. And for a man, this scent seems more casual, both in terms of what you're doing and who you're with. It definitely goes the distance, especially if applied on clothes. I could put this on in the morning and smell it on my sweatshirt the next night, easy.

Not for work. Not for dates. Not for the night.

Wear it to church in the springtime. That's about how narrow it is. But like I said, for what it is, it does it well.

First thought is that this is a mint based perfume. Not the freshly cut mint, but rather the dry tea kind. Then what complements it is the green leaves; it does have a vegetal and wet feel to it, almost like we've made a mint tea from those dried mint leaves.
The drydown is where the mint takes a back stage and while I can't pin point what exactly I am smelling now, it is a pretty common aroma used heavily in the last few years, especially in the masculine designer releases.

I adore this. I'm not usually a fan of mint, but this has a subtlety that makes it obvious, but not toothpaste-y. I agree with references to Herbal Fresca, but this is nicer, and closer to the discontinued and missed (by me) Comme des Garcons Mint (from the Green line).

I can't really pick out supporting notes - no doubt some citrus, some florals, etc. What I can say that something in here makes it last FOREVER. Unexpected in this genre. Thumbs up!

Minty fresh. Somewhere between a bag of minted peas and mouthwash. Rose appears in time to give an impression of talc. But that's it. All very clean-scrubbed, innocent and bathroom-y. Not for me thanks.

The first thing I felt was mint, a powerful, refreshing mint as someone rubbed a mint leaf into his hands. I picked the mint from the fields many times. This smell is exactly the same.
After a while some strong green notes feel their presence. They change the direction of the perfume a little, but the mint remains at the center of the composition.
Because mint is very often used in medicine, it can be said that the smell of the perfume recalls the medicinal smell of the pills.
The dry-down is minty musk. Now the mint is stronger to my nose. It is like a last swing before it disappears altogether.
It is a nice perfume for summer, sparkling, boozy, with a lot of personality. It is a try!

Breezy and soothing, this light minty concoction is refreshment on redial. It has echoes of the sea, of morning gardens, and seems to invite one to dwell in a pale, spacious, minimalist designer home in a complimentary white linen kaftan.
Somewhat linear – check; synthetic – check; Herba Fresca with hints of L’Ombre Dans L’Eau – check. Nonetheless, I found its effortless manner disarming, a bare shouldered shrug to trying too hard. ‘I’ve touched your brow with my cool, I’m finished like a beach pebble – what more do you want?’ it seems to say in its ASMR voice.
Puts on a bit of weight late in the wear becoming more reminiscent of the Diptyque offering and – at times, and curiously, – a guava.
