This certainly is mint. I postponed testing CdG's Peppermint for all these years because I am not very fond of mint fragrances. This one surprised me… I actually like the potently mint opening. The top is a very good interpretation of garden peppermint and the accord is bright, lively, and refreshing, and… I like it. Unfortunately it loses its mintyness all too quickly to becomes a grassy green scent, which is very nice but not really very exciting. It ends with an herbal bent to the drydown. The fragrance has good sillage, gradually lessening as it progresses. Peppermint, the fragrance, lasts only two or three hours on my skin and more than half of that is as a rather unexciting skin scent. It's a nice fragrance clean and natural but it would have been much better had it continued the mint, or added something a little more interesting than grass.
