    Default mint.

    i've become quite into mint/spearmint these days and the aroma of FRESH mint leaves....it's amazing in the summer.

    does anyone know of any great scents which have alot of mint notes in em?


    cheers!

    Live Jazz by YSL

    This is one extremely beautiful 'minty' fragrance thats great for the summers. Its a terrific change from the 'citrus' theme that most summer fragrances revolve around.

    Jazz Prestige by YSL

    What a chance...I wore this yesterday and was reminded that it was loaded with lots of mint in the topnotes...However as the dry down appears it just reeks of lots of 'sandalwood' with the mint nowhere to be seen. I prefer wearing this one in winter.

    You might consider this one: Very Irrésistible Givenchy Summer Cocktail, which just came out for this summer, I believe. A very nice SA at Sephora suggested it. I found it to be more appealing than the others in this line. Very cool, very minty. My frag buddy at work loved this, too. I'm considering buying a bottle next chance I get. My sample is almost gone.

    Haven't tried Live Jazz, but YSL is always great. Thanks for the tip, gupts.

    Czech & Speake's Cuba has a very prominent mint top note that is still noticeable well into the dry down...

    Other than that:
    Lacoste Booster

    I've ordered a sample of Thundra by Profumo, which has a mint accord in it. I'll let you know what I think when it gets here.

    Same here. On a tear now with three obsessions. Want Mint, menthol and ivory soap smell.

    The review here on Lacoste Booster meets the first two items I believe. But have not tired it yet. On my wish list however.

    I did buy in target today Jack Black signature mint soap bars and it does leave a faint smell of mint.

    Many perfumes containing patchouli have a mint note for me.

    Creed Green Valley is the best mint in my opinion.

    I also enjoy L'Eau Bleue D'Issey Eau Fraiche for its great use of mint.

    I was planning to start a mint thread myself right when this one came out. Based on what I read in this thread and in the reviews forum, I bought and received a bottle of Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Mentafollia. Very nice! It's like having some fresh mint leaves stuffed inside my shirt. It's just like the reviews suggested it would be. Thanks for the many suggestions. I wish I could try them all.

    To add yet another; Roger and Gallet's L'Homme has some nice spearmint.

    Holy crap, I can't believe nobody has suggested "Menthe Fraiche" by Heeley. Absolutely perfect mint scent. I'll second CdG#5's Sherbert: Peppermint. Great layering fragrance.
