Loving this minty edt at the moment- it is extremely refreshing and bracing (especially straight from the fridge) but it being only an edt it fades super fast . And it comes in a very small bottle so you could get through this really fast and pay a fortune to boot. I think the constant comparison to Herba Fresca are unfair, they are very different . Intially HF has a lovely dominant minty freshness that evolves in to an overly sweet, lemony tea ( sadly the mint totally disappears), which I'm not so fond of. The series 5 Peppermint is perhaps not so complex, in fact it is pretty linear but at least it doesn't do a weird turn around.I love the strong, greeness of this but I reallywish it had a bit more intensity. I generally wear this with my Lavanilla deodorant and the pairing is delightfully crisp. So whenever I get a whiff of my self I feel as though I have just been rolling in dew at dawn! Edit: this stuff works fabulously with my green and citrus scents and gives such a lovely kick and makes a great refreshing jolt for summer.

I'm on a mint rampage at the moment and finally got to sample this one. I wanted to love it but was disappointed. It's extremely green, and quite bitter. It is refreshing in a way but it's much too stark, and there's not even that much mint in it. While the mint is detectable, it gets swalled by the bitter green. Though I like "natural" scents and appreciate the realness of a scent that smells like a real garden, this is sadly unwearable for me. It has very strong woody-peppery notes and is quite similar to L'Artisan's Navegar. For reference, I really love Guerlain's Herba Fresca which is refreshing but more palatable, with more pronounced mint and friendly, complementary floral, tea, and citrus notes. CdG Peppermint only comes in a 1 oz. bottle so it's not a lot for the money. Would not purchase this one. But if you like bitter green and pepper, do try it.

I am on my second bottle of this one as well. Like all guys, I love peppermint scent. Especially during summer. Wearing this one, is just like having a crewing gum.. don't get me wrong , it's a good pepperminty gum because it lingers longer than other peppermint perfumes I own.
This one is very very green, actually the entire series is Green based. Just picture that you are drinking soda, and with minty chewing gum in your mouth .. they mix well together. You will probably get a general idea how this perfume smells like.

A nice, inoffensive mint (and I LOVE mint fragrances), but it gets boring very quickly, settling down to an almost imperceptible musk on me. Herba Fresca beats it by miles.

I was just making myself a cup of freshly-brewed mint tea. It's refreshing and minty-sweet aroma instantly made me think of one of my favorite fragrance... CdG Peppermint! It is a beautiful, very fresh scent that starts out very minty, reminding me of the summer. I love this beautiful fragrance, carefree. youthfull and very natural. Slightly herby at the drydown, with lots of creamy undertones (creamy is always welcome by me:)) and great woods to make the scent deeper. Simply a stunning one!

As other reviewers have noted, CdG Peppermint is definitely (and thankfully) NOT a "candy-cane" peppermint scent but rather the top note is the exact smell you get when you tear fresh mint leaves apart. I found that rather thrilling, from an olfactory point of view, but then the middle and basenotes were just general green-ish notes that were pleasant but not particularly exciting. The sillage was ok- it lasted about 30-45 minutes on my skin. Although CdG Peppermint is not something I would personally want to wear, it would be a great scent for a candle (hint, hint!)
Here are the notes, courtesy of Luckyscent: curly mint, peppermint, bay rose, white pepper, cardamom, amber, white musk.

I agree, this IS the perfect summer fragrance! Quite herbal/grassy and natural peppermint, not candycanesweet peppermint.
Lovely and long-lasting on me. So refreshing for a hot day, or anytime I need a pickmeup. A great office fragrance - I can't imagine this offending anyone - if used in moderation.

This is the perfect summer fragrance--crisp, herbal, minty goodness. This is not a synthetic, sweet mint. It smells like you crushed some mint from the garden onto your skin--there is also a definite fresh cut grass accord goin' on. The drydown loses much of the mint and becomes quite herbal and grassy in nature. I really like this scent in hot weather, and at $40 for a 30 ml bottle, it is astonishingly affordable.

Hmm. This was not what I'd wanted it to be. I wanted it to be that peppermint that actually lasted... a scent that had a longer life than AA Herba Fresca and Mentafollia. It's nice, but for THIS price tag, mamma needs it to last a great deal longer.

Oh this is a sexy mint. Sexy, cool and icy. Perfect for hot summer months. It has a cooling effect and is the perfect smooth peppermint mix. It's not just mint. It's a blend of herbs and creaminess that just feels so sensual in summer. Cools my mind, body and spirit. It's more than perfume it is actually aromatherapy. It is my HG mint scent. I love it. I wish CdG made it in the bigger bottle for Summer. Just thinking about it makes me feel cooler.

The previous reviewer who described this as "garden mint" is right on the money. It's not the peppermint that you find scenting bath gels or flavoring chewing gum/toothpastes....rather, it's a very "green" fragrance. Think peppermint mixed with fresh cut grass. I neither love it or hate it --- it's definitely a unisex fragrance. I rather like using it as a room fragrance...esp. in the kitchen. It neutralizes odors really well. If I wear it, it best agrees with my skin chemistry in warmer weather --- very refreshing.

Fresh garden mint, amazingly diffusive - zaps you almost before it's out of the bottle. Associations in my case to mint sauce dressing for roast lamb (in UK), less pleasantly to someone popping in some chewing gum. Then maybe an anise note, plus loads of Calone - an aroma chemical with a marine/prawn character, which takes it in the direction of Aramis New West for women, etc.

This starts out a little strong, then mellows out nicely. I'm not impressed. Bath & Body Works Garden Mint remains the greatest mint of all time. Too bad it's discontinued.

It's mint alright, very soft and fine to wear - but no oomph at all.. I really prefer Bath and Body Works' Eucalyptus Spearmint (in the Relax aromatherapy line).. it smells cleaner and fresher and less sweet... I'd have to bathe in the CDG to end up with any mint waft at all.

The third Sherbet (and the one I like least) is of course minty but not in a mouthwashy way: there are also notes of roseberries, white pepper, cardamom, amber and white musk. Playfully spicy little green scent. /// update: the more I wear it the more I love it!
