Ferrero doesn't have that.
It took ages until the little mini atomizers arrived at my home. I needed a sprayable container to be able to test "Mentha Religiosa", which until yesterday was still in a small glass tube. After the decanting succeeded without a big spill, nothing more stood in the way of a test.

After spraying on the fragrance, it only takes a fraction of a second to let me wallow in childhood memories. Immediately the tic tacs with peppermint flavour, which I used to love, come to mind. I liked and still like the red variety best, but the peppermint freshness of the "standard variety" is not to be sneezed at. Speaking of freshness, the petitgrain should not be forgotten in this context either, which is a bit harsh and doesn't leave the peppermint alone. I hear the bergamot only very faintly and it does not take long until it has completely disappeared. Iris on the other hand is clearly - yes, very clearly - perceptible. As you know from her, she knows how to captivate with a sparkling clean, somewhat scratchy appearance. However, she does not come close to the powdery Prada character, which is perhaps not entirely wrong. The incense envelops the petitgrain-embossed peppermint iris compound very discreetly. So incense skeptics need not panic here. Its fear note is only faintly perceptible and also very aromatic, as it is not reminiscent of a crypt or cellar - clean incense is just that.
Towards the end the whole thing acquires a certain creaminess together with a minimal sweetness that reminds a little of vanilla, without the peppermint even thinking of farewell. It is truly dominant and loud, but somehow I like this one. She takes up a lot of space for herself, but never so much as to sew nothing else but her. Meanwhile, the iris has also become more and more withdrawn. Her clean, white face remains on the nose, but the initially powdery scratching is now completely gone - mind you, it was never disturbing at any time. In the end, with all this we get a pimped up tic tac, which Ferrero probably doesn't have in her assortment. The composition is on the one hand peppermint fresh, but on the other hand has enough depth and is therefore for me the flaconed spring, without being just a "simple", confusable refresher.

Lapsang mint with buttered iris melt
AugustA smells a cup of strongly brewed warm mint tea, slightly sweetened, more herbaceous than fresh and also smoked like Lapsang Souchong. Far away from toothpaste mint or chewing gum.

The smoke mixes softly with buttery iris, just a touch, with me no powder. This makes the fragrance soft and cuddly, also Heliotop works in this direction and probably gives the light sweetness. All in all the texture of the fragrance seems to me to be floating but also firm and enveloping. Calming, strengthening. Green-spicy patchouli with a bit of Mediterranean sun from the cistus resin accompanies the fade-out. Conclusion: A good fragrance in turbulent times!
