Thread: Mint Anyone?

  1. #1

    Default Mint Anyone?

    I LOVE fragrances with strong MINT notes, some of my faves are:

    Pasha de Cartier: Fraîcheur Menthe
    Guerlain's Herba Fresca
    Lacoste's Booster (menthol in this one)
    and of course Jean Paul Gaultier's Le Mâle

    What are your favorite mint scents (for those whom also love it's fresh fun scent!)!

    The only mentholated fragrance I truly enjoy so far is Tubereuse Criminelle.

    Heeley's Eau de Menthe is sublime, but longevity is fleeting.

    I love mint too.

    I happen to also adore Guerlain's Herba Fresca (the mint note in it smells just like Doublemint gum, in a good way!)

    My other recommendations:

    Selection Verte by Creed
    Series 5 Sherbet: Peppermint by Comme des Garcons

    In addition, Jo Malone has a new fragrance coming out that's mint and jasmine, that I'm really looking forward to.

    I tried the mint and jasmine last weekend; like the Heeley, smells good, lasts 5 minutes. Literally.

    Creed's Chevrefeuille Original is an outstanding mint/floral/musk creation--very unique. If you try it, suspend judgment for a while, it can morph.

    Guerlain's superb Derby is the best deployment of a mint note, IMHO

    I'm surprised nobody has mentioned Piper Nigrum yet. It has a strong peppermint note, along with its bazillion other notes.

    I was just in Morocco this summer. Maybe this can bring back some fond memories!

    I will have to second or is it the 5th...Heeley Eau d' Menthe....or Live Jazz...the Heeley does only last barely minutes but it's pure mint..the Live Jazz sticks around...mainly the green notes around the mint....but the mint is definately there.

    I have and love:
    LV Piper Nigrum - a pepper scent really but starts with a blast of mint
    Live Jazz - mint with yuzu & rhubarb
    CdG Leaves Series Mint - mint with galbanum
    CdG Sherbet Series Peppermint - peppermint with white pepper

    Then there's Les Parfums de Rosine's Diabolo Rose which I haven't tested yet: mint with rose and tomato leaves
