A plea for Eau de Minthé
I can share much of what you read here about Eau de Minthé. But I draw somewhat differently accentuated conclusions from it.
Yes, a fougère through and through.
Yes, fougère, but not stale at that.
Yes, fresh and spicy it is.
Yes, the mint plays a much smaller role than the name might suggest.

So far, so good. On those four points, most who have commented here on Eau de Minthé seem pretty much in agreement. But many don't think it's anything special.

Yes, I do think it is. The combination of old-fashioned fougère and fresh, minty spiciness makes it special. The fact that an old-fashioned theme is interpreted in a modern way without falling into overly synthetic excesses is something special today (unfortunately). And for me, the longevity and sillage are also special, namely very decent. This is rather unusual in a Freshie, at least if too much Ambroxan or ISO-E-Super is dispensed with.

Eau de Minthé comes extremely well received, he generates many compliments (one röche indeed particularly), he is universally applicable and he offers his qualities at a still decent price.

In this respect, I plead for more distribution and more approval and condemn all whiners to four weeks Gualtieri- Dauerbedampfung!

Soft fougère without a really special character
The name Eau de Minthé is, in my opinion, rather misleading, because mint is only clearly perceptible for a relatively short time in the top note. What really makes the fragrance stand out is a rather modern, but by no means groundbreaking fougère accord. Of course, this is automatically associated with lavender, which isn't found here, but many classic representatives of this genre often use rose geranium as well - as in Diptyque's creation.

This in turn creates the connection to mint, because - botanically correct - Pelargonium graveolens has a light, rosy and almost minty-fresh character. This effect is probably intended to be further enhanced by rose oxide, but I don't perceive the fragrance as being too floral. I have to admit that there are some parallels to Lumière Noire Homme. At least, if you think of mint aside, the texture looks similarly smooth to me, since patchouli only shimmers through very gently at first. However, the scent of Maison Francis Kurkdjian is much sweeter, spicier and fuller, while Diptyque focuses on a soapy accord that is already reminiscent of shower gel. Patchouli comes out a bit later, but seems to be strongly tamed and 'cleaned' green-woody.

Like many other barbershop perfumes, Eau de Minthé smells like freshly shaved/combed and is therefore a very safe companion for every situation in everyday life. But to really stand out and justify its price it lacks the special character. In a similar vein, I like masculin Pluriel and At the Barber's much better and if it should be more spicy, it is better to go straight to older classics or to Honos. The lavender makes the difference and roughens the texture a bit more.

Pleasant but boring
Very pleasant fougère! The usual lavender has been replaced here by mint.
I like the "Opening" much better than the rest of the fragrance. The beautiful initial mint disappears relatively quickly and the rest of the time it smells like a well-groomed man fresh out of the shower who is not willing to be too out of place.
In any case, the scent is well done and you don't rub off. But for this price segment the fragrance is too "Otto-Normal-Verbaucher-mäßig".
In any case a recommendation for niche newcomers who do not want to take any risk and for whom money is not an issue!

Fresh mint with spicy patchouli
The Eau de Minthe is a perfect example of how just a few notes are enough to create a great fragrance.

It starts with a fresh but also spicy mint. For me, it doesn't smell artificial like other fragrances, but like a herb bed. The spicy patchouli, which is sometimes too overpowering in the top note, fades into the background over time.

The fragrance exudes a high quality and elegance throughout, which is partly what makes it so special for me.

The lovely rose accords follow in the base and harmonize wonderfully with the fresh mint. The drydown takes the fragrance to a new level and irons out the slight inconsistencies of the top note.

The longevity and sillage are superb. The fragrance lingers intensely on the skin, even after a long day, and is drawn into every corner of the room when sprayed on.

In my opinion, the freshness and light aquatic notes make it particularly wearable in summer. I would say it is unisex, but tends in the feminine direction.
Definitely worth a try. Those who like the texture and style of Diptyque fragrances are in good hands here.

Tart freshness
Eau de Minthé is something special, at least in my collection. It is different from the others. And yet that's exactly what I like!
What does it smell like?
Eau de Minthé opens tart, masculine and fresh.
Not a biting mint that will take my breath away, but fresh enough for it to show itself. Patchouly rounds off the freshness, later shifting it in a softer direction. The floral notes are not immediately noticeable, yet they gently support the overall impression.

This fragrance is not offensive, it is simply there. Perceptible but not overpowering.
It may seem rather masculine, but it was the more tart fragrance in my collection that I needed.

After 8 hours it is unfortunately no longer perceptible but the time I spent with it was wonderful.
It is radiant for about 4 hours, after which it gradually fades away.
Nevertheless, a well-done bitter freshie

A locker room of a few decades ago. Heavy deodorant, shaving foam and cheap aftershave in the air. Nostalgia to some, dreadful to me

Was expecting a lot more. Smells too generic and bubble-gummy for its price tag. That's one of the first Diptyques that I don't find good
