    Incredibly wonderful mint top notes crash into a heap in about an hour. Of course, I need to test this more and give it a full wearing.

    But for now, I think Roadster by Cartier wins the new 'Mint prominent - Mens Fragrance' award.
    Oh yes, they both have their flaws but Roadster is the better creation of the two, IMHO.

    Guerlain Homme was my SOTD today and I was hoping for a bit better projection with the warmer temps here in Jersey. Sadly, my body heat didn't warm it up enough to get much more projection. It does last forever as I can still smell it tonight ... but it's very close to my skin. And as usual, I did grossly overspray. Such a shame as I really like this scent. I like it much better than Roadster which I've sampled three different times and really TRIED to like. But after the mint disappears off the top, I don't know what the hell it's supposed to be. Maybe it's just my skin chemistry. But even given the discounters prices of the low $70 range (Beautyencounter, Scentiments), I still think it's way over priced for what it is.

    My 2 Guerlain purchases this year were very nice scents (Guerlain Homme and Cologne du 68), but I just wish they had better projection.
