    Default Heeley Menthe Fraiche or Frederic Malle Geranium Pour Monsieur?

    Both of these feature prominent mint, but which of them has better longevity and projection? Also, which is the better scent in your opinion, and why?

    I prefer the Heeley over the Malle, based solely on smell. I like the smell of the Heeley, and I do not like the smell of the Malle.

    Geranium Pour Monsieur. Mint is one of my favorite notes, and, I have tested as many fragrances as I could find with it. Menthe Fraiche is very nice, but, not FBW for me. GPM on the other hand is a WOW fragrance to me. It also happens to be my SOTD. GPM also wins in both categories, projection and longevity.

    To appreciate that needs to like the fragrance. For me personally a task still to be accomplished.

    Wow...seriously? Here too? IT IS A PERSONAL OPINION. With all that "academic" knowledge you proclaim, one would think you would be able to figure that out.

    I prefer the Heeley to be honest but for longevity it really gets a nil points

    Geranium pour Monsieur, for the first few minutes, is great, after that it becomes, practically, a soliflore comprised of almost exclusively ONE uber-common aromachemical. It's the easiest scent in the world to copy for like $1/100ml

    The Heeley is much nicer, but too feminine and transparent for me. But I LOVE the beginning of Heeley Menthe Fraiche.

    I have not smelled the Heeley. But the Malle is definitely a no no for me - it just smells like mouthwash or toothpaste. eow! I like the smell of mouthwash and toothpate but for my mouth not for my body.

    Yesterday I sprayed 3 sprays on my arm to test GpM.
    It is very minty for the first 2 hours then it relaxes into what it is mean to be.

    for swap/sale:

    I quite like them both. IMO the Heeley is more of a minimalistic and simple iteration of mint (though pretty interesting), with the addiction of slight citrus patterns on top and a woody base. It's quite linear. GPM is a complex composition that opens with a strong geranium / mint combo to evolte into a completely different scent in the drydown. Soapy, refined, extremely elegant, complex. If I had to choose I would probably go for GPM.

    Heeley Menthe Fraiche for me- my favorite mint so far. I didn't like GPM at all.
    We're all in the same game; just different levels. Dealing with the same hell; just different devils.

    Heeley is a joke. No longevity and just mint. Wrigleys Spearmint gum works just as well, and has better longevity and sillage. GPM is a real frag and shouldn't be compared to a wannabe like Heeley. Hell, Menthe Moderne from DSH perfumes smokes Heeley as far as a mint scent goes.
