Eau de Minthe Eau de Parfum
Eau de Minthe Eau de Parfum is a fragrance by Diptyque. The notes of this fragrance are Mint, geranium, patchouli, rose oxide
Invented in 1882 with the release of Houbigant’s Fougere Royale, the distinctively fresh, classically masculine fougere is a stalwart of fine European fragrance- and until now, there’s never been an entry from the equally iconic house of Diptyque. But in case you haven’t figured it out from the name, Eau de Minthe is not your (great-great-?) grandfather’s fougere; rather, it’s an impressively clever twist on a classic that replaces the standard lavender-geranium-oakmoss DNA of a fougere with an electric jolt of mouthwatering mint in place of the lavender. Not only does this provide a striking unisex balance to a typically masculine genre, but it builds on a molecular connection between mint and geranium that lends the floral heart of the scent a dynamic aromatic resonance. As a soft patchouli base with a touch of mossy rose lends gentle strength, Eau de Minthe takes the form of a recognizable fougere- but never so much that its delightful individuality is lost. Vibrant, fresh, and utterly unique, Eau de Minthe is a new classic fougere to stand alongside the greats.
