It's a shame this has been discontinued. The mint is very light and it was a very fresh scent. It went a bit sweet on me, but absolutely sophisticated. It reminded me a more mature Lancome Aroma Tonic (which was also discontinued! BLARG!)

last i checked this was discontinued. =( i bought several backup bottles on ebay, because i absolutely LOVE this scent. it's less citrusy than their regular green tea. it starts off slightly tart and green, and quickly sweetens up. on me, it smells like green tea, fresh cut grass, and very faintly of mint. i guess it will depend on your body chemistry, but this is a very pleasant scent, and i always get compliments. decent lasting power--i find if i spray it on my hair it lasts longer.

A tragic interaction with my body chemistry. The mint note turned super sweet on me and I achieved the results hinting at grandpa's shaving thing. Great packaging though. Sad sad.

This sounded like a good idea, but something about it stuck in the back of my throat. Its too bitter or something, I guess that's the green tea smell, but to me its not pleasant fragrance. Love the bottle though!

I would describe this as Lemon mint with a slight floral/musk undertone. I personally do not like L'Occitanes original green tea fragrance, I find it too sweet and a little sickening after a while, however I really like this one, the mint, musk, green tea, carraway and jasmine seem to combine well to give the right balance. On me it's very light and subtle and a really nice day fragrance which doesn't induce any headache or sneezing, if you don't really like strong or complex smells then I would recommend this. The staying power on me is a couple of hours, however nothing that I like lasts very long on my skin so on an oilyer skin it may last longer. As some have already mentioned, due to the bottle size and shape (not to mention price!) it's not something you would want to carry around in your bag.
I got this as a gift, so didn't pay for it, personally I think that L'Occitane charge far too much for their fragrances that are basically no more than 'toilet waters', they should consider doing these in smaller sizes also. Other than that I would recommend this but not sure I would buy again as the bottle is so big and I change fragrances a lot! By the way on the L'occitane website apparently this was the one that Jennifer Aniston was wearing when Oprah interviewed her in 2008 asking her what that wonderful smell was!

YUM! I love crisp, refreshing, and unusual/unexpected fragrances - this fits the bill! One (1) point off for staying-power: it doesn't last very long. I purchased the Green Tea and Mint cooling lotion/gel for "layering" purposes, but it didn't help much. I'd like to see this in a solid and/or a travel mini (like they're Green Tea fragrance) so I can at least touch-up throughout the day. The bottle is too huge to carry around in your purse.

I bought this last year and am still wearing it. It is a unisex fragrance. Very green and great for summer. Crisp and refreshing. It is an everyday fragrance to me. This is not something I'd wear to swoon a guy. This is more herbal and relaxing. My DH likes it, but like I said, it's not sexy or anything like that. Just nice herbal, relaxing scent that I wear again and again. Perfect for summer bc it's not complex. It's pretty much mint tea at first and then dries down to a beautiful smelling green tea.

Beautiful and crisp! A clear mint topnote (not raggedy wild mint) and the green tea is kind of woody and grassy, just like the real thing. I love it.

I bought this one today! I had smelled it about a year ago while I was in Pittsburgh for a graduation, and have spent quite a lot of time withing I had bought it.
I have found many tea scents to be florals and the tea hard to discern among jasmine roses and other blooms. This one is mainly tea, a sprig of mint, and I'll be darned if I can find the jasmine. Hooray, a tea scent that delivers on its name..
I also liked the White Tea, which substituted cardamom and nut meg for the mint note....but Iove this one. I think it's great now and it will be fabulous in the summer!

My husband is SO picky when it comes to fragrances. He only likes Green Tea or something spicy. He hates florals, vanilla and powder scents. I'm always looking for something he really notices and that we both like. This is it. I used to wear Green Tea fragrances years ago, before I met my husband and grew tired of them and stopped. But the thing I really love about this one is the MINT. It makes it smell different from the usual Green Teas. It's also very refreshing and crisp smelling. I do sometimes wear Elizabeth Arden's Green Tea, but this one is FAR better. I just use the EA one mainly for work. I love this one so much, I want to eat myself....seriously--I think it's the mint. It's the only fragrance from my vast collection that when I wear it my husband always says, 'ummmm....you smell good!" I love that. :) I will buy again for sure and the bottle is so pretty!

So refreshing and cool smelling. You smell the citrusy-floral verbena, the cool mint, and a hint of a crisp powder. Perfect for hot, sticky summer wear! You feel so clean when you spritz this on after a shower.

I liked this more than the plain green tea which was straight floral to me. This has a touch of sweet mint that adds so much. It's perfect for those hot, sultry, casual summer days. Fresh, light, and lasts most of the day, especially paired with the gel. You just feel cooler with this on. I love the faceted bottle too.

I got this perfume as a gift and just love it. It starts out smelling a little too cloyingly sweet when I first spray it, but after a few minutes, settles into a much lighter and summery scent.

i love this fragrance. light and crisp. minty without smelling like chewing gum, and VERY light.

I think this will become my staple for summer. Incredibly cool and refreshing, uplifting, still neither harsh nor 'edgy' (I was sceptical about the mint part before I tried it, but I loved it immediately). Unisex fragrance, still no worries that it could be too masculine (though sales lady told me that boys are crazy about it). It is just a divine breezy scent (also almost mouthwatering for me). It just has such a good impact on me... so nice. I LOVE IT! --- Description from L'Occitane web: Top notes: bitter orange, mint, Heart notes: green tea, mate tea, jasmin, Base notes: musk, cedre, thym, vanilla, caramel.
