    Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Mentafolia...great fresh scent, amazing longevity for an Aqua Allegoria. It's been discontinued but you can get a great price for a 4.2 oz on ebay.

    It says it's a women's frag but it's totally unisex.

    Is this quite similar to Heeley's Menthe Fraiche?

    Bulgari pour Homme Soir by Bulgari - An initial burst of refreshing bergamot, halfway between a lemon and an orange, with its tart and juicy green and very faint mint-like aspects, professes the clean and fresh opening. The darjeeling tea beckons the invigorating bergamot to stew in the heart, and infuses it with its somewhat powdery and medicinal woodiness morphing the sharp citrus into a more fruity bent. Guaiacwood, with its honey and smoky features, and papyrus, with its withered grassy and light wood facets, serve as a background for the simmering brew, which has acquired a sweet and wet earthiness. The waiting base, with its soft and almost syrupy amber as well as its radiant and slightly soapy musk, tugs for recognition and carries the tea blend to its delightful drydown. This classy fragrance can be an all-season treat, and has average projection, becoming a skin scent, and good longevity.

    My top choice for a Summer tea scent would definitely be Creed Silver Mountain Water. A very classy scent.

    No...They both have a prominent mint note but Mentafolia is more of a green tea scent (I think, I don't drink tea), and Menthe Fraiche is Yerba Mate tea which is more woody. For some reason people think that both of these scents are all about the mint but to me they are much more about the tea with a side player of mint...I don't know if people think of Menthe Fraiche as THE mint fragrance to get because they don't have much experience with Mate, but to me this fragrance is ALL about Mate and a little about mint. I lived in Argentina for 2 years and I smelled Mate (which they drink non stop in Argentina) every day all day long and Menthe Fraiche starts out minty then turns to Mate and then it is JUST Mate. I can't figure out why people don't get that from Menthe Fraiche. OK, I'm off point...they are both tea scents but in my opinion VERY different tea scents.
