Mint with personality!
First of all, this is a great patchouli scent. Second of all, this is also a great (if not the best) mint fragrance. It's a charming fragrance with quality materials. Cartier is one of the best designer houses out there and one of the few independent ones. They realize great perfumes and this is no exception. Unfortunately, discontinued. There's not many mint fragrances out there. There's Herba Fresca (which is very good but weird, combining green tea with curly mint), there's Le Male (but it's more about lavender and vanilla with mint going on just in the opening) and there's this beauty. It starts off with a strong albeit soft mint-herbal note with some Vetiver nuances. Patchouli gets bigger right after the first minutes and dominates de base of this scent. It's linear but very alluring. In the same ball park as L'instant, as far as patchouli contemporary scents although more centered on Mint. I think vanilla palys a role here giving some alluring charm but it's very subtle. Overall, a great mint fragrance that I recommend you to seek for a bottle. Longevity is good and projection is soft. A must!
