Minty Fresh-Cut Grass
On my skin, it smelled like I pulled a mint leaf from a plant and rubbed it on my skin then rolled around in fresh-cut grass. I love mint and fresh-cut grass, but I don't necessarily want to smell like that. I got zero floral notes. It did feel very unisex and neither masculine nor feminine.

It is a nice smell, heavy on the mint. Definitely to be used in moderation. Not my typical scent profile

Not for me.
Tried this because a YouTuber recommended it and spoke highly of it. I thought it was terrible. A hint of rose, but honestly smelled like body odor or armpit.

Smells different on male and female
When we first received this perfume, my husband didn't want to try it. He thought it smelled feminine. I thought it smelled very fresh, just out of the shower smell. I convinced him to try it. We had our daughter smell it on both of our arms. She agreed it smelled different on each of us!

It was OK..
Wasn't a fan, it didn't smell bad, but sort of a mix of some rose, light peppery smell with a baby powder finish. Just didn't care for on myself personally.

Strong, but lovely
I love this scent. It is strong so I don’t use much and it lasts on me most of the day. Smells floral like roses but also with a hint of mint and citrus. Very refreshing and could work in any season.

Strange
This smells like a womans rose scented perfume. It does "wear" off a little after a bit and begins to have a more masculine smell, but still smells very feminine. I admit, I do kind of like it, but it's still kind of strange for a man.

It's Okay
It's just okay. Like many other reviews mentioned the scent is very strong. I received my package leaking and halfway gone as the top of my Scentbird spray was not screwed on tightly, so that could also lend to the extremely strong smell. Glad I don't care too much for the fragrance or I would be livid.

This scent was...
Interesting. I didn't really love it. I was hoping for more citrus/mint, but the rose overpowering. All the notes were competing with each other, so it was hard to categorize. I gave it to my mom (smells really mature).

Rosesplosion
VERY strong rose note, and the only other thing I can make out is a vague difference to the rose. Can’t tell what it actually is. Then the sneezing started. Even washed off I can still smell it, so longevity isn’t terrible.

Interesting, but maybe not for me
I have mixed feelings about this one. The initial spray was very refreshing and herbal, in the most pleasent way. However, it seemed as soon as I got a whiff of mint and green it was gone. This one quickly turned into a floral musky scent on my skin. The dry down is not unpleasant, but I was a little disappointed on how this one worked with my body chemistry. Great for Spring. Also, a wonderful introduction to mint.

Nice mojito vibe
I get a mojito vibe from it. It does lean towards the feminine side but a confident man can definitely pull this one off. It shines in the summer heat. Lovely scent to add to the collection. A must try if your into cocktails smelling fragrances.

Wonderful spring or summer scent
This is a great green scent for warm weather. It leans slightly towards woman but a man can pull it off no problem. I get a lot of fresh mint and rose. Its something that is refreshing and clean. I would wear it casually or in an office setting. Projection is decent but not amazing. I get a good 6 or 7 hours on my skin, its not bad for a fresher fragrance.Overall I would recommend it to people who want something different for casual situations that live in warmer climates.

Simple and Sweet
Everything I have ever gotten from Etat Libre d'Orange has been fantastic and this one fits right into that category. The scent notes are simplistic and you can smell each one from the first spray: mint, rose, and herbs. That's it. Parts of this scent remind me of a delicious mint julep or a mojito; other parts of it remind me of a big bouquet of roses. Some other fruity notes come through, like orange and citrus fruits, although these scents are not within the official profile. I agree with other users that this one may be classified as unisex, but it leans toward feminine. But dudes, get in touch with your feminine side. No one needs to smell like leather and suede and oud and musk all the time.

SO MUCH ORANGE!
I guess i didn't pay much attention to the reviews on this one but man does it smell like some burnt oranges. My wife says she likes it alright but apparently cologne really doesn't do it for her, she'd rather me fold clothes or do laundry.

This is definitely a woman's fragrance not unisex. Everyone that smelled it said same thing, it distinctly smells like you just walked into a florist or funeral parlor.

I really like this bright fresh scent. It's minty and kind of wakes you up. It drys down to a light fresh almost floral scent.

Strong scent
This is a heavy orange scent, not as refreshing as I normally like my perfume to smell but it definitely is long lasting as I smelled it on me for hours after I first sprayed it. If you want a thicker orange scent this is the way to go, but if you are more into light/floral not so much.

Not bad for a freshie
I ordered this based on a review I read. I love the uniqueness of this fragrance house which is why I thought I'd give it a go.Although I'm not as thrilled as the reviewer, I'm glad I tried it. I do not like soapy fresh scents, but I enjoy the mint in this one. It's very refreshing during the dead of summer heat. The staying power in the best but about average (maybe 4-5hrs). The first time I wore it a received a compliment on it as soon as I arrived at work(that never happens in my office).

Not a fan.
I did not consider the scent too strong and it did not last very long on me, nothing seems to, although generally it would be the scents you don't like that do! haha! There are definite citrus notes, but not in a refreshing way and there is a grandmotherly quality to this scent that I can't quite pinpoint. Unfortunately, this was my very first order...I do tend to prefer woodsier scents and grabbed this based on popularity, and I don't generally find citrus offensive, but did in this case.

Very strong fragrance
As a previous user described, this is a very strong fragrance and it will envelope your senses but not in a good way. The scent gave me a headache soon after I put it on and I can't wait to get home to shower so I can rid myself of this scent and hopefully wash away the throbbing at my temples. I do not recommend this to anyone, it is an overpowering fragrance that is headache inducing.

This has been my favorite scent so far

no, no, no - smelled like a grandmothers kitchen, maybe?
I, nor anyone that smelled this, liked it. It was WAY more heavy on the "I am going to cook with this" than the "I am going to walk around and smell pretty". It gave others an instant headache. I did not like this at all. The mint and herb way over powered the rose.

Search online for the story behind the fragrance, it describes its character well. Fresh, clean, yes some mint, but with an industrial/metallic edge which makes it more modern and cool rather than your basic green scent.

Fresh
I like it a lot. It's bright and super floral/citrus when it first goes on, then mellows into a fresh and natural tone. I only ever use one squirt spread across both wrists and a dab on the neck, for any perfume, out of preference. I still get some subtle vanilla notes at the end of the day. It's winter now, and I like it because it's a refreshing change, but I imagine it'll be nice in spring as well.

Opens with invigorating mint and smells fresh in a nice, breezy way. No cleaner or toothpaste here, just a clean, green summer scent that brings to mind drinking mojitos under swaying palm trees. I can smell a bit of grass in there too, but it's not too strong. Love this for summer!

The best way I can describe this scent is minty and green. It's like refreshing grass. It's very unique. I don't feel it's overpowering at all. There's just a hint lingering of the rose, grapefruit and cassis. It's stays close to the skin and I feel it needs reapplying after about 4 hours to stay fresh. I'm really glad I got this.I think it's going to be a great summer perfume.

My bottle is defective and doesn't function properly, however, the scent is absolutely wonderful. This is the first fragrance I have received in all these many months that I have loved. It's great for summer because of the mint. It's just so fresh and clean. It reminds me of Dirty Springwash Shower Gel by Lush.

The cactus scent is the most striking thing about this perfume at first. It's very interesting! Eventually it fades to a fresh greenish scent. It lives very close to the skin, not overwhelming at all. It will likely need reapplication after a few hours. I love how it smells very fresh but not like synthetic "aqua" scent.
