Menthe Fraiche

Eau de Parfum

The Scoop

A crisp, cold, bracing mint at first, we think we've found the fragrance mint worshippers have been wishing for! What keeps Menthe Fraîche fascinating is its gentle evolution from brisk to warm, subtle mint, and the secret ingredient behind it is green tea. If you've ever enjoyed a Moroccan mint tea (green tea, mint and sugar), you'll have a hint at what a delicious fragrance you're in for. If you haven't, just have a spritz of Menthe Fraîche and save the calories and the trip to the local Moroccan restaurant. Amazingly subtle, wonderfully refreshing…we are already hording bottles in our own stashes for the summer!

I love this. So easy to wear, so fresh and clean. Could never be offensive. Bought the sample from the Heeley site, very tempted to buy the full bottle for spring/ summer...

It smells exactly like freshly torn mint leaves. Some nice longevity. Not a complex scent, but refreshing.

Menthe Fraiche by Heeley! By far the most practical take on mint, this can be a good or bad thing, depending on your taste. I personally like it, however it does seem to lack any real depth. On the positive side it won't offend anyone.

Very minty up front with a touch of citrus. Later it changes a little with a sharp bitter note, ambergris, white musk and maybe vanilla. It maintains an astringent sort of note to remind you of the mint that wore off long ago. Mint is a top note, so it does not stick around. I'm not sure what the medicinal note that lingers is from. Maybe virginia cedar or cypress

I think this is a very unique scent, worthy of consideration by people who really like simple, fresh fragrances and don't mind mint/sweetness. Projection/longevity are lacking, but you can always wear more, or put unscented lotion on your skin right before spraying. But for what it's lacking in those areas, it definitely makes up for in quality of scent. This is unbelievable, and definitely without a doubt my #1 summer daily-wear scent. Awesome.

Have to echo many of the previous comments.....just a gorgeous fragrance, but the longevity (or lack thereof) is really frustrating. I have a bottle, simply because the first 15 minutes of this perfume are incredible.....but after 2-3 hours, the icy mint masterpiece fades into oblivion.

Really lovely, but on me it seems to disappear in minutes. The mint up top smells exactly like a torn live leaf, not bagged tea or the synthetic mint smells that are in a million products from gum to lotion. After that fades, it's simply light and bright underneath. I could easily make this a daily-wear scent -- great for early mornings and the office -- if only it would last. (Interestingly, I have Eau Radieuse on my other wrist and I'm getting an idea that these two might layer well.)

Really loved this scent as to actually purchase a full bottle. Had a sample for well over a year, and it finally grew on me. Its comforting scent of mint isn't too obnoxious, nor synthetic.

This is deserving of consideration--- a true mint/citrus fragrance...excellent for hot spring/summer days and nights. Very European in execution... more to this than may be apparent at first--not exceptionally long lasting (2hrs plus), but a truly unique fragrance.

I'm not sure what to make of this. When the mint subsides, it's just a light, clean fragrance - not at all sweet. Not bad, just not especially evocative. (Also, it seemed like people around me were sniffing a lot when I wore it - like they were trying to figure out what they were smelling - it was a little unnerving.)

Really enjoyed the combination of mint with herbal scents. A nature-lover could adore this one. Found it quite pleasing, especially the naturalness and the simplicity of the fragrance. It's not at all fancy or "perfumy" and that's why I like it.

This smells like a cheap wal-mart bodyspray. Pass!!!

Yuck! This smells cheap to me, I'm sorry. The description sounded great and I love mint and green tea as well as vanilla. Unfortunately, none of those notes were present here. More like a Walgreens rip-off perfume. Spice and smoke and window cleaner! An unfortunate waste of money.

I have smelled a million samples; they are either too floral, too, sweet, too fruity, too musty, too powdery, too strong, too old, too young, so what is in between? This is!! When I first put it on I thought, "ugh! too green tea-ee!" But when it dried down it was beautiful! Especially mixed with vanilla bourbon(spell?), which makes it just a bit yummier. Love it!

I got a sample of this for my husband, who loves mate' and mint. It smells very fresh on him. Delicious. We both love it.

There's nothing wrong w/ mint, except the staying power. NO STAY...NO STAYEE!!

I like mint in general but was hoping for more depth in this scent. The majority of the time it smelled like I had rubbed mint on my skin...could be nice in the summer but I was just looking for more. After about four hours I did catch a whiff of something VERY pleasant..but couldn't put my finger on it and it just wasn't worth the wait and it didn't last.
