    I really like this one as well, stands out. It's strong mint + earth. This, Bigarade Concentree, and Vetiver Extraordinaire are my top 3 Malle fragrances.

    STC also has better customer service. They respond to my emails when I inquire about an order. Perfumed Court never responded to me, that's why I no longer do business with them.
