    1. Jade - Fresh Mint 4 Star Review

      Posted by on 19th Feb 2017

      A very bright burst of fresh mints that reminds one of fresh tooth paste and fades to a spicy and minty geranium with a tinge of citronella-like spiciness. The sweet violet is at the back of the note...not very noticeable if you are not looking for it. The dry down will have a sweet sandalwood and musky finish. Many reviewed this as a spring fragrance, but it will definitely work in cold weather after the initial tone down of the spearmint.

      I really love the geranium opening of this. The green, spicy-herbal scent of geranium is so soothing to me. Unfortunately, that stage only lasts about five minutes before this settles into spearmint, sandalwood and musk on my skin. It's a very dry, baby powdery sandalwood, powdery spearmint chewing gum and sharp, clean white musk smell. Goes soapy on me after a while. A clean, powdery, minty fragrance.

      Think of a lady muskrat, wearing a mint cloak with a geranium behind one ear and a star anise in its mouth.
      This is for fun and for zing! I love the way the notes play together. This won't be my last bottle. Kudos for keeping the price affordable.

    4. Strong musk 5 Star Review

      Posted by on 10th Dec 2015

      Very musky, something animalic at very beginning that disappears quickly, or rather becomes well balanced with the rest of notes. Cannot contribute that to the listed ambrette only, there must be something animalic in it. Or could it be the combination of ambrette, opoponax, and that stinky urine like specimen of cedar? Can detect a bit of clove’s spiciness as well.
      Overall it is kind of stinky but in a good way, becoming powdery sweet over time. Very, very good.

      I've been looking for a mint fragrance for quite some time. Mentha Fraiche didn't do it for me, nor did 1861 Renaissance. This, coupled with the nice price tag, stands in a league all of its own...
