    Default Spearmint

    Compiled from the Note Identification Project thread:

    Spearmint (EO, Aura Cacia, Mentha spicata origin USA)--3 drops on cotton, wafted
    Like peppermint, spearmint is cool and refreshing...and very recognizable. Where peppermint is soft and a bit woody, spearmint is very sweet and green smelling--much brighter in tone than the pepperment, but not overwhelming in any way. The dry down is still very similar, only it smells more like chewing gum. It is also getting a bit of an off-scent, but not as much as the peppermint.

    Spearmint, USA , Eden Botanicals – Sweet, candylike, cool, smooth, delicious. This is a mouthwatering note, as far as I am concerned.

    I find this a much more pleasant note in men's scents than peppermint.
