Best spearmint scent ever!
Nice watery green spearmint with a hint of green tea in the background. Yes, there are some woods at the base and some florals far on the background, but green spearmint is the major note!!! This is spearmint done to perfection, I must have tried 10-12 different mint-themed fragrances and I can attest this is by far the best. The tricky part is to have a pronounced mint note but not to make it smell like oral hygiene product. Menthe Fraiche accomplishes just that: the mint is so real that it almost feels like you just bathed in Moroccan Mint iced tea :) Surprisingly good performance too (5-6 hours of active projection) with longevity going into 8-10 hours (skin scent at the end). By no means it is a beast in projection. This is not a very intense but rather light, uplifting and very inoffensive but noticeable, likable scent! Very refreshing and great hot weather alternative to citrus based freshies. If you like what I am describing, this fragrance is a safe blind buy! It is worth every penny and no other scent is even close if you look at the list what it is compared to, none of them is remotely near Menthe-Fraiche!!!.

PS As with many new direction fragrances, this one is unisex and borders a little with home fragrance. Be aware to be comfortable with all the above but this is a great great frag!!!

Reference Mint But Poor Value...
This is just an absolutely fantastic mint scent and by far the most natural I have smelled to date. It smells exactly like a high quality mint tea I enjoy drinking (and smelling). The scent is relatively simple and does not develop much. It is called fresh mint, and that is what it delivers (along with a mate-like tea). Mint fragrances seekers can stop right here and seek this one out as it will most likely wind up as their reference mint scent.

Unfortunately, the price of Menthe Fraiche is pretty steep in relative terms for a simplistic mint, and the scent is very short-lived. Those negatives make purchasing a full bottle a more difficult decision, but from a sheer quality perspective this is a tremendous release from Heeley and shows they know what they are doing. This reference mint gets a super-strong 4.5 out of 5 star rating but those looking for a similar quality mint for 1/3 the price should seek out a *vintage* bottle of Green Water (before they spoiled it with the reformulation).

I get an initial realistic (sour) bergamot blast followed by very green spearmint and tea with citrus. Mowed lawn / herbal green. Just ok.

Spearmint and peppermint rounded off with some more mint. Green freshness in spades for heavy duty mint lovers.
