    Default Mint + Grapefruit

    Ok, I know winter is approaching.... what better time to reach for a summery scent! lol

    I'm after a frag that smells of grapefruit and mint! Fruit-green and uplifting. Even with a hint of tomato plant? Any suggestions?

    I get both notes from an, albeit discontinued and male frag, in considerable proportions: What about Adam by Joop (still availble at some reliable online retailers), a summery frag with an earthy-minty-herbal drydown and a grapefruit-citrus opening

    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads

    A good unisex one is Cool Tropic Turquoise by Comptoir Sud Pacifique.
    2 for men that have grapefruit and mint are 1 Million by Paco Rabanne
    also Bleu de Chanel by Chanel. A more feminine one is Charisma by Ayala Moriel.

    L'eau by Serge Lutens is a citrus, cotton, mint, light musk. More modern than is typical for this brand. It's unisex. To me it's very happy and sunny. I was given samples and I really like the scent because it smells so good on my skin. I usually go for spicy oriental scents. I would give it a try.

    Everlast Original 1910. The lavender and leather are also clearly present, so if you don't like those notes, then you may not like it. Tonka in the base sweetens it slightly.

    Three off the top of my head I can think of, with Grapefruit and mint in them (and other notes) are:
    Annick Goutal Eau du Sud, Patricia de Nicolaļ - L'Eau Mixte and The Different Company - Un Parfum de Charmes & Feuilles.

    Not sure, but Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Herba Fresca might be worth a sniff

    You might like Creed Selection Verte. Creed lists the notes as neroli, citrus, slightly peppered
    peppermint, herb notes and ambergris.

    I have this - really yummy, but missing the grapefruit/citrus kick... perhaps I could layer it with something zesty?

    I whole heartedly 2nd the recommendation of Selection Verte, even though it has no grapefruit.
    It has plenty of Mandarin, Lime, and Lemon to go with the mint.

    Live Jazz had alot I like, but also had alot of a fresh leafy Cilantro note,
    which is one of a very short list of hated notes for me.
    But if you like Cilantro, it might scratch the itch just right.

    Others I'd recommend, more in the Selection Verte realm, are:
    Molinard Double Fraicheur (mint, lemon, verbena, basil, vetiver, fresh wet leafy notes)
    Jacques Fath Green Water (mint, orange, lemon, herbs, neroli, astringent-tonic-type notes)

    ANd another excellent lonmg lasting discontinued green beauty, like a much stronger, more modern Eau de Campagne:

    L'Artisan Parfum de Feuilles (Mint, Basil, Anise, Tomato Leaf, musk)

    One last non-citrus minty green:
    Lacoste Booster (Mint, Wintergreen, Eucalyptus, Fruity notes, Tonka Bean)

    Haven't tested Joop What About Adam, but always wanted to.
    For those who have, is it similar to any I've listed?
