A plea for Eau de Minthé
I can share much of what you read here about Eau de Minthé. But I draw somewhat differently accentuated conclusions from it.
Yes, a fougère through and through.
Yes, fougère, but not stale at that.
Yes, fresh and spicy it is.
Yes, the mint plays a much smaller role than the name might suggest.

So far, so good. On those four points, most who have commented here on Eau de Minthé seem pretty much in agreement. But many don't think it's anything special.

Yes, I do think it is. The combination of old-fashioned fougère and fresh, minty spiciness makes it special. The fact that an old-fashioned theme is interpreted in a modern way without falling into overly synthetic excesses is something special today (unfortunately). And for me, the longevity and sillage are also special, namely very decent. This is rather unusual in a Freshie, at least if too much Ambroxan or ISO-E-Super is dispensed with.

Eau de Minthé comes extremely well received, he generates many compliments (one röche indeed particularly), he is universally applicable and he offers his qualities at a still decent price.

In this respect, I plead for more distribution and more approval and condemn all whiners to four weeks Gualtieri- Dauerbedampfung!

Pleasant but boring
Very pleasant fougère! The usual lavender has been replaced here by mint.
I like the "Opening" much better than the rest of the fragrance. The beautiful initial mint disappears relatively quickly and the rest of the time it smells like a well-groomed man fresh out of the shower who is not willing to be too out of place.
In any case, the scent is well done and you don't rub off. But for this price segment the fragrance is too "Otto-Normal-Verbaucher-mäßig".
In any case a recommendation for niche newcomers who do not want to take any risk and for whom money is not an issue!

Soft fougère without a really special character
The name Eau de Minthé is, in my opinion, rather misleading, because mint is only clearly perceptible for a relatively short time in the top note. What really makes the fragrance stand out is a rather modern, but by no means groundbreaking fougère accord. Of course, this is automatically associated with lavender, which isn't found here, but many classic representatives of this genre often use rose geranium as well - as in Diptyque's creation.

This in turn creates the connection to mint, because - botanically correct - Pelargonium graveolens has a light, rosy and almost minty-fresh character. This effect is probably intended to be further enhanced by rose oxide, but I don't perceive the fragrance as being too floral. I have to admit that there are some parallels to Lumière Noire Homme. At least, if you think of mint aside, the texture looks similarly smooth to me, since patchouli only shimmers through very gently at first. However, the scent of Maison Francis Kurkdjian is much sweeter, spicier and fuller, while Diptyque focuses on a soapy accord that is already reminiscent of shower gel. Patchouli comes out a bit later, but seems to be strongly tamed and 'cleaned' green-woody.

Like many other barbershop perfumes, Eau de Minthé smells like freshly shaved/combed and is therefore a very safe companion for every situation in everyday life. But to really stand out and justify its price it lacks the special character. In a similar vein, I like masculin Pluriel and At the Barber's much better and if it should be more spicy, it is better to go straight to older classics or to Honos. The lavender makes the difference and roughens the texture a bit more.

Eau de Underratéd!!
What a fresh Minz-Fougere-Barbershop Hammer!
For a long time I was looking for a well portable Fougere that is not too bulky (MFK´s) and well portable in the office! This one is a Sauberman, smooth fresh Barbershop-Minz-Fougere with great H/S.
I had received the EdM from an order at NOSE (a great shop by the way), smelled it briefly and then put it aside rather carelessly. Triggered by a perfume here...I tested it again and waited to see what was to come after the initially quite simple mint (not negative).
Had compared it to Kilian (LovetheWayyoutaste) at that time, this one was apparently better.

Start: mint rose combination, beautiful and "well-blended".
Middle DD: Great Barber Fougere-Vibe with fresh laundry connection.

Another great Barber who has similar notes (Viking) has despite very similar notes NOTHING in common with this colleague here!
Had totally underestimated the fragrance and the fragrance house Diptyque! That's really quality!!
In spite of simple scents the EdM has a great course and does not remain linear.
He clearly remains on the masculine side, that was always my problem with "Philosykos" until now, which is also great, but just after 2-3 hours goes into a quite female "Bal d´Afique-Drydown".

Finally I am happy to have discovered this fragrance, probably one of the most beautiful fresh barbers there is! Great brand, great flacon design, great fragrance quality, and for what is offered also a great P/L.
By the way, Diptyque is now quite new at Douglas. (The wait for Ludwig Beck codes has come to an end)

If anyone is looking for a beautiful, masculine Barber-Fougere, then THEN here! Testing!
Minty greetings, TOM

A locker room of a few decades ago. Heavy deodorant, shaving foam and cheap aftershave in the air. Nostalgia to some, dreadful to me

Was expecting a lot more. Smells too generic and bubble-gummy for its price tag. That's one of the first Diptyques that I don't find good
