    Default Anything similar to Heeley Menthe Fraiche?

    I must say I absolutely love this fragrance. I went from buying samples to decants to finally a full bottle now. I had never smelled anything similar to this and I had tried a few mint fragrances and also a few tea fragrances but not with these notes together. Now im more interested in trying other fragrances with a similar vibe. Any recommendations?

    Samourai Silver Plus by Alain Delon has a similar vibe, but clearly not the same.

    I like, and enjoy Menthe Moderne by DSH Perfumes more than Heeley.

    I was on a hunt for mint frag a few weeks back. Not many choices for a green non-sweet version here in Cincinnati.
    I tried Lush's Dirty but the sweetness made me associate it with spearmint gum. I wouldn't rule it out though as some like it.
    Guerlain's Herba Fresca is a nice mint/cut green grass. I've never smelled the Heeley, but the two fragrances are often reviewed similarly.

    For my blast of green I use Premier Figuier but I see you have Philosykos.

    I've tried just about every mint frag out there and they all have a different sort of vibe to them. If it's just the mint vibe that you're looking for then by all means give Herba Fresca, Mentafollia, Geranium Pour Monsieur, and CDG Peppermint Sherbet a try. I love them all, along with Dirty. I need to try the Menthe Moderne as I hear it's great so feel free to share your thoughts on it when you get your sample.

    Mentafolia is the closest I've smelled.

    Never thought about it but I guess I do get a Menthe Fraiche vibe from Mentafollia, although I like Mentafollia a lot better. Menthe Fraiche has a lot of Yerba Mate in it, and it turns sour on me, and then disappears within like 30 minutes.

    Roadster by Cartier ... a fresh, non-toothpasty mint, really a dark, subdued mint, which duets with a fresh, green fougere ... excellent quality and versatility ... very good sillage and longevity .
