Maison Matine Nature Insolente

Maison Matine are a niche French fragrance brand. They collaborate with different perfumers and designers to create their scents and bottle designs. Nature Insolente is a Mint and Orange unisex fragrance which is super refreshing. It’s a real Ovrange Peel fragrance note which combines with the Mint and a Honeydew Melon to create a fragrance ideal for Mint lovers on a humid day.

Maison Matine use organic alcohol in their fragrances and no plastic in their packaging; they’re a lovely modern, eco-friendly fragrance brand available at Harvey Nichols, Anthropologie US, Parfum Dreams and Liberty London.

Elie Saab Girl Of Now Lovely

I think Ellie Saab perfumes are a bit of a hidden gem. Their Girl of Now and Le Parfum ranges are both amazing for lasting and have a classy quality to them which is hard to find in a designer fragrance.

Elie Saab Girl Of Now Lovely is the forth version of the Girl Of Now perfumes which all centre around an Almond heart note. In this fragrance the Almond is joined by a green and slightly aromatic Mint fragrance note which lift the warm Almond note and gives it that Mojito vibe.

Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Herba Fresca

Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Herba Fresca

Guerlain’s Aqua Allegoria fragrances are a series of mainly Eau de Toilette scents centred around fresh fragrances from nature. Herba Fresca is one of the original scents released in 1999 and has remained a best seller in the range ever since. The Herb in the name is referring to the main fragrance note, Mint, as well as a hint of Clover and Tea Leaf. There is a fresh Lemon top note which reveals the Mint underneath and keeps the fragrance light and refreshing.

Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Herba Fresca is unisex and has a refillable bottle too.

In the UK & Europe I recommend getting Aqua Allegoria fragrances from Notino. In Canada they’re sold at Sephora and in the US

CK One Summer Daze

Every year Calvin Klein release a summer edition of their best selling, classic 90s fragrance CK One. The original is a unisex, citrus fragrance and the summer editions tend to follow the same path.

CK One Summer Daze is the 2022 summer edition of CK One and is all about two fragrance notes; Mint and Kumquat (which in this fragrance smells just like Oranges to me).

This combination creates a super freshening, zesty and uplifting fruity fragrance perfect for spraying right after a shower or to lift your mood on a humid day.

You can find CK One Summer Daze at Notino and The Fragrance Shop.

Jo Malone London White Jasmine & Mint

Jo Malone London have an aromatic Mint perfume called White Jasmine & Mint. Floral notes of Jasmine and Orange Blossom support the Mint note without overwhelming it, while aromatic scents of Tea leaves, Chamomile and Cardamon give it that ‘spa feeling’.

Jo Malone sold her brand to Estée Lauder a long time ago and hasn’t been involved in the fragrances. Since then the prices have increased quite a lot as well; I don’t tend to recommend Jo Malone London because of the hefty price tags but if you love the fragrance then go for it.
