So refreshing...
and also more complex than I first thought. Miller et Bertaux do not seem to necessarily attach importance to a fragrance development, which I find in principle but not negative. And yet I perceive just in this fragrance a development, which I find extremely exciting and refined.
But from the beginning:
I bought this perfume only in the fall of this year, actually stupid - when it is so refreshing and intended for the summer. Now it is in these Corona times, yes, that you have to tackle most sporting activities in your own four walls, which is not easy for me at times. Since I own Menta y Menta, I spray myself with it as a motivator - and because I like the scent so much, it often works with the physical exercise afterwards. The fragrance is virtually my pre-reward.
The reviews here are very critical, which concerns the durability and the sillage, I can not confirm so for me in its entirety (maybe I just spray more ...). But I wouldn't want to wear a room-filling perfume in a fitness center or in summer during the day. And you can, as a previous speaker already suggested, just re-spray.
As for the scent: yes, you could associate it with chewing gum or toothpaste, but for me it rather conjures up images of my Moroccan vacation, where tea with fresh mint was offered everywhere and always. Maybe I don't think of toothpaste either, because I hardly notice any sharpness, not even at the beginning. Possibly I'm a bit jaded there because I love spiciness and never go out of my way. I don't detect lemon at all. Coffee I can sniff very briefly, but the bitterness doesn't last long for me. To me, Menta y Menta smells like an aromatic infusion that gets creamier with time. The scent remains minimalist and uncomplicated, but as the minty notes fade, a scent that I don't even know how to describe emerges after hours. If I didn't know better, I'd even say a hint of musk works its way through the soft transparent mint notes. You do indeed have to get close to your wrist after hours to still detect the notes, but it's fun to sniff it again and again. So far, the fragrance is also not "over" to me, which I often experience with many fragrances.
For me, Menta y Menta is an energetic, successful composition, in which I am already looking forward to the next summer, to also be allowed to delight my environment with one or two extra sprays.

Broadband layer fragrance on a delicate basis
Miller et Bertaux are doing a great job. Therefore - as well as out of love for the green, the citric and the olfactory intention to integrate the far underestimated mint into everyday fragrance life - Menta y Menta now lies on this skin. It's the third scent of this house in this household. And for this skin a very entertaining conversation.
First of all strong alcohol, like kissing after brushing your teeth with a strong flag. Then the 'delightful' smell of cheap, masculine marketed shower gels. Of course a lighter, more complex, avant-garde version. A surrogate staged for the discerning nose: freshly ground mint, Zeste and freshly unpacked Wrigley's Doublemint. Also short-lived. In the top note patronizing a proximity to CdG Play Green.
The rest, a natural reminiscence of the scents of the 1990s, which celebrated the near future and the synthetic in a science-fiction manner. 2019, Menta y Menta is now about nature. Here sounds delicate floral with. Lemon quickly absent. Sillage too. After a surprisingly short development time, only a vague trace of delicate jasmine blossom remains on this skin, freshly showered in the shower gel mentioned above, perhaps coffee in the background. Quite far, somewhere in the distance: a shadowy echo of naturalized CK Be. Unfortunately too late for the nineties revival. That was over five years ago. And it's over again. Menta y Menta is a fresh, bitter-flowery unisex fragrance component that depends on the imagination of the wearer. Miller et Bertaux fragrances are intended for layering and this is mandatory with this fragrance.
On virgin, freshly showered, uncreamed skin, Menta y Menta also disappears immediately.
(will continue to observe)

Mint makes you spontaneous

Actually, I had a list in my pocket. A list of perfumes I wanted to test. To keep me from doing exactly that: Spontaneous tests and spontaneous purchases. But most of the time it comes differently than you think. While I was still standing around with my list in one hand and my mobile phone in the other (a permanent link to the perfumery community is an absolute must for me on these excursions), a lady entered the store to pick up an ordered fragrance. The saleswoman sprayed the perfume on her hand once more so that she could also let her male companion sniff it - and in the thousandth of a second in which a single minty-cool scent molecule hit my nose, I knew: Uiiiiii, this visit will be more expensive than planned.
And there's not much to Menty y Menta and not much to it. Only wonderful fresh mint and a little around it. I appear here without further ado as a mint fetishist: chocolate mint, ginger mint, pineapple mint, Moroccan mint, peppermint, straw mint, apple mint, they all found a place on my balcony over the years and were eaten with pleasure in mojitos, hugos, water, teas, pasta dishes, puff pastries and much more. And every visit to my balcony involves rubbing the leaves to release their fragrance. So you see, a severe case of mint addiction.
It's not like that with perfumes, though. Mint here often reminds me of toothpaste (if it is really recognizable) or of flower water (if it was used more discreetly). But Menta y Menta actually just smells fresh of mint - with the slight pungency that most mint varieties have in nature. Maybe there is still a hint of lemon to be guessed at, a kind of ice-cold water with fresh mint leaves and some lemon slices. I don't smell coffee even after x attempts, I can only guess a delicate floral note.
By the way, the shelf life is about the same as that of a lemon mint water from my kitchen, so actually non-existent. Menta y Menta is a little scented water that is best taken for a walk in your handbag on hot days and generously sprayed on whenever you need a little refreshment. An overdose is completely impossible!
And yet: a wonderful companion through the hot summer days. And since a nice soap boiler on the craftsmen's market told me that mint promotes concentration, the remains of the scent are now transported to the office, since the hot summer days are a thing of the past. Let's see if he's right! And even if not, Menta y Menta simply reminds me of the carefree hot days of my summer holiday. Also good - or maybe even better...
