    Default Mint/vanilla, Mint/chocolate, Mint/candy

    I'm looking for a power fragrances with a super strong mint note and with a hand-full of sweetness either from vanilla/amber, chocolate/cocoa or just candied mint.


    Thanks in advance.

    The only one that comes to mind is Cartier's Roadster.
    I wouldn't call the mint "super strong", but it's very prominent.
    The sweetness comes from the vanilla in the base.

    Also, I wouldn't call it a power scent, but it's certainly no slouch either.

    Although I'm not a fan, you could try Dior Fahrenheit 32.

    Why don't you like it? I really love it. It's vanilla but not mint! Thanks for your comment

    Hi Mike!

    I suggest you seek out Geranium pour Monsieur by Editions de Parfums Frederic Malle.

    If you reside in Stockholm COW perfumery has it.

    Good luck!

    I kind of get this from Memoir Man. To me, it opened with a kind of cool mint vibe. Became smoky/leathery for awhile...then turned to a kind of French vanilla 2-3 hours in. Not exactly what you're looking for, but of the frags I've tried, this comes the closest.

    Seconding recs for Roadster, Pure Shot, and Le Male and its flankers.

    You might also try Molinard Vanille Fraicheur or Creed Green Valley

    I somehow just discovered Burberry for Men recently and i really like it. Reminds me of mint gumballs from a gumball machine.

    Of course, if you want to be really literal in the mint/chocolate smell, Demeter makes a Junior Mints fragrance. I am also a big mint candy fan and have a sample of Junior Mints, and honestly, it's not bad. It doesn't last long, but is very realistic.

    As far as mint fragrances go though, I've also yet to find the perfect one for me. I actually would love to find a vanilla/mint scent similar to gum, mint ice cream, or candy. However, most suggestions are more towards natural mint leaf. I don't care for Roadster (too much earthy sour vetiver/labdanum), Menthe Fraiche (like the top, but hate the odd syrupy/mate' note in the drydown). I wish someone would make a fragrance that smells like sweet mint gum up top with a powdery,woody, vanilla base. Le Male is kinda in that vein, but I would like a stronger, more candied mint, and less of the barbershop lavender vibe. Anyway, maybe Demeter will create a Wrigleys Peppermint, Spearmint, or Doublemint gum scent. I'd certainly buy it!

    Another one that might not be considered in this category, but can work as a unisex mint scent is Bath and Body Works seasonal Twisted Peppermint. It's available in their "fine fragrance mist" body spray each year at Xmas, and is a combination of peppermint, sugar, and a vanilla base. It's not perfect, but isn't a bad choice for a sweet mint candy type fragrance.

    +1 for Roadster. On the dry down it smells great.
    Another for Le Male. It's more of a vanilla-floral sweet with some mint. I prefer it over Roadster though

    I'm not a huge fan of Very Irresistible Fresh Attitude, but it smells nice and it defnitely fits the bill - minty vanilla coffee

    Both are mint fragrances that are sweet (the latter being less so)

    Mint+ chocolate = Lacoste Elegance
    Mint+ Vanilla = Jacomo Rouge, TL Pour Lui, JPG Le Male (personally I do not like it though!!)
    If you want some green/herbal mint scent then Roadster Sport or even Givenchy Fresh Attitude and Dirty by Lush.

    Just thought of another one: Fahrenheit 32

    It's got a minty orange blossom vanilla thing going on.

    Borneo 1834 kind of smells like Haagen Daas Chocolate Chocolate Chip Mint, I think. I haven't had ice cream since I was a tater tot, so I don't know if that brand even exists anymore, and if it does, maybe it's been reformulated.
