    Anyone have a suggestion/recommendation for a nice smelling mint cologne?

    I passed a guy on campus the other day whose cologne smelled awesome...manly but minty. I Googled some stuff but if anyone has a real recommendation that would be awesome.

    Just try some [organic] peppermint essential oil. You might need to dilute it first though. And a little will go a long way.
    I work in an Aveda spa, and Aveda makes a product called Blue Oil, with peppermint as the main ingredient. If there's an Aveda facility near you, try it out. It costs about $13.00.

    Possibly he had used something like Trader Joe's "Tea Tree Tingle" body wash ("invigorate with peppermint, tea tree, and eucalyptus botanicals")?

    next time you see him dont be so shy and ask him what 's he is wearing.
    and no, he won't think you are gay. And if he does, well, it's his problem.

    Dr. Bronner's Peppermint Soap?

    Even if it is not a strong lingering odor, it is great stuff for a refreshing shower or bath.

    I can get it at Kroger's but you will find it in health food shops, too.

    Also available in lavender which is relaxing.

    Old standby plain soap product. Reading the label is a trip!

    Indeed! I first saw a bottle of Dr. Bronner's in 1991; I thought I was hallucinating.

    I use the
    dr. Bronner's Peppermint Soap. It's great in the summer but I find it a little strong for the winter. it comes in Peppermint,Eucalyptus,Almond, lavender, tea tree, Citrus and rose. I think almond works well for winter months

    Fragrance.net and Sephora.com profiles the fragrances they sell, and will tell you what ingredients they have. Or just ask in any fragrance store.
    As far as the ones that i know that have mint in it;
    Gucci by Gucci Pour Homme Sport
    Hugo XY
    Givenchy Play
    Dior Homme Sport

    Have fun! icon_biggrin.gif
