    Default Spring Mint Suggestions?

    Hey BN'ers. I'm looking for a Spring mint fragrance that:

    Is not super minty like Kryptomint, or Roadster, and not subtle mint like Big Pony 3, Just Different (Hugo), or Polo blue. I would say something along the lines of Live Jazz (which would probably be my definitive Spring mint frag if it was available). No Cool Water, or any of the flankers, no Le Male (too much lavender), no discontinued frags that I can't find anymore (like Cool Water Frozen). Niche stuff is ok, but I would prefer ones that I could find decants of at a reasonable price from reputable Ebay sellers. I also own Ideal Cool, and have been wearing it a bit in the Spring weather, I think it's great and would like something similar. not in smell, but in structure: the balance between mint, citrus, and other notes.

    I am not trying to be annoying, just thorough. And for those who know me more personally, this topic may cater to you more as you know my tastes, but i am open to all recommendations that fit this criteria. Also, please take a gander at my wardrobe to see if I may already own your suggestion, I keep my wardrobe as up to date as possible.

    Thanks

    Isn't Xerjoff 1861 Renaissance a shoe in? I can't wait to start wearing it myself.

    What do you think about Caron Pour Un Homme Sport?

    Roadster Sport is also not as minty/vetivery as the original, but still a touch of mint.

    Well,

    Pretty obvious to me and surprised it wasn't the first reply........Creed - Viking. Spicy, minty, aquatic. One of the best in this class. I don't remember getting much mint in my Beach Hut Man sample when testing it but when I just gave it a quick whiff, sure enough, yeah, I get some mint in it. The mint is well blended, but I really only detect it when I know it's in the mix.

    a few of the guys here rate Herrera's Virgin Mint very highly. it's also a notch below the more expensive EDP line.

    Since Geranium is often mistook for a minty vibe, I will also toss in a recommendation for Creed Vetiver Geranium.

    I was thinking this too, but might be hard to find a decant.

    I concur with Diptyque's Eau de Minthe, Heeley's Menthe Fraiche and hunting for Herrera's Virgin Mint.

    Another beautiful mint, IMO, is Miller et Bertaux' Menta y Menta.

    Some of these have been mentioned:

    Carven L'Eau Intense - has a noticeable lavender note though which might not be to your taste, OP.

    Lush Dirty - spearmint and not mint here but it's a great one. Worth trying both the perfume and the body spray to see which you prefer.

    Lacoste Booster - mint and eucalyptus over vetiver. A cheapie favourite of mine.

    Guerlain Homme EDP - boozy mint with lime

    Guerlain Homme L'Eau Boisee - vetiver with a hint of mint
