Reviews of Booster

Booster is excellent. It's a fresh, minty fragrance that is cheap as chips and smells like it's worth much more than it costs. I love it and always want to have it in my collection with a couple of back up bottles to boot!

One of my go-to spring/summer fragrances. Clean, fresh, uplifting mint scent is a near perfect match if you're moisturizing with Proraso Green After Shave Balm Crema Liquida. Booster lasts for hours, has good projection, and is reasonably priced. I have the original P&G made version which I'm told is better that the later one made by Coty. Spray and enjoy!

A green-grey blast of dry, minty attic dust.

Booster is an idiosyncratic fragrance, similar to few if any at all. MonkeyManMatt mentions Pasha, which is indeed its remote, perhaps only, relative.

Very polarizing, some reviewers describe it as sharp and clean, others as evocative of a crumbling herb warehouse!

Iconic and unique. A must have if you like to collect fragrance's extreme reference points.

Reaally lovely refreshing fragrance.
Its completely different from today fresh scents.
Petitgrain neroli minty clean scent.
Great for summer.

An underrated gem! I have worn Booster for many years and for me, this is just about the most perfect casual sport scent. Fresh, clean and energizing with excellent projection and longevity. You can tell that this was developed by master perfumer Jean Kerleo, because the blending is so smooth and well thought out.
Jean is truly the virtuoso of lavender!

Wonderfully different compared to virtually everything else on the fragrance market, and masterfully crafted of high quality ingredients. The menthol, eucalyptus, peppermint and lavender work very nicely together and does not become a cloying mess. I recommend this as a casual sport scent for those that appreciate uniqueness.

Meh...can't say that I'd wear it on a regular basis.

Like Lacoste Original's boldness to be an in-your-face "green" scent, Booster is a courageously made potion that centers on the brightness of the mint via eucalyptus and peppermint notes. But it's too experimental for me, though not outrightly bad.

IMO, the now also discontinued Pasha Fraîcheur Menthe does a more convincing job of conveying a pleasant mint scent.
