About this deal

Although I’m not a fan of oud-based fragrances anymore, I do feel that the oud accord would bring out another dimension, round up the composition, and give it more punch since in the end, this release is not a summer fragrance no matter what Mancera’s marketing team would like you to believe.

The heart notes are predominately made out of jasmine, and here is where the fragrance turns more into a unisex, slightly feminine fragrance, but never goes to that extreme. This is not bright and uplifting given the name, it's more like a dark spooky lemon scent if that makes sense. I honestly don't know, but most people seem to be sure that there is no mint in it and I don't want to contradict them. The perfume is a cool and floral blend of fresh lemon, Almonds, Black pepper, leather and fresh mint leaves which are essential for diffusing this wonderful aroma in your home. Visionary Fragrances are not affiliated with, endorsed, sponsored or supported by any of the brands whose products we sell.you smell like a mojito", "I´ve never smelled something like that", "you smell so sexy", "you smell so cozy", "you smell so cute" (? The fresh notes of lemon, mint and coriander create a ray of sunlight that shines on the mysterious accord of agarwood, patchouli and leather. In terms of performance, it walks the same path as other Mancera creations; that is to say it performs very well. I wholehearteadly disagree that this can work in hot summer days, atleast on my skin will become quite cloying in the heat. As time goes by, the almond first takes the main role from the lemon, after that, the oud is the strongest player.

Unfortunately, I'm left now smelling like I've just cleaned house with the strongest chemicals I could find. Animal or all too artificial Aoud nobody has to fear here, but from my point of view one is exactly at the interface between light and sweet smells with a very light dark impact - somehow everything is present at the same time. On skin, this frag is significantly more dynamic and although it maintains the cleaning product underpinning, the citrus is more natural and the scent has more depth. Let me tell you, if you end up going to a closed small room meeting, you will be told this is strong. There is something cool about this fragrance and I think that’s why it has mint in its name, but I don’t get any mint from this whatsoever.I forgot about this, summer started a few days ago, went to a barbecue party, and thought, "well, let´s see what this monster is all about".

This doesn’t mean it is a weak scent at all but is something to be considered if you want a strong-performing perfume. Aoud Lemon Mint by Mancera is a woody oriental fragrance for men and women and was released in 2016.It's such a powerful scent, I only did one spray and at first I kinda liked it but then it became really one note and also very nauseating.

My closing statement is i have many designer fragrances and i do love most of them but Mancera Aoud lemon mint and Cedrat Boise are readily available for under 90 usd and they both totally destroy 95% of designer fragrances in terms of quality and performance. Just as responsible for the fact that I wouldn't meet the classification as fresh are the discreetly gourmand notes of almond, which fortunately doesn't remind me of marzipan, and vanilla. The heavy almond and vanilla combo gives this fragrance a creamy quality, which peaks in the dry down.It feels as if it projects very weakly and becomes a skin scent after less than 30 minutes and even that lasts for only 4 hours. The dry down adds sexy leather, cozy vanilla pods, homogenous Haitan vetiver, a touch of basic amber, and not-so-sweet Musk. You'll pick up on the lemon, and as far as the mint is concerned it doesn't come across as any kind of herbal spearmint, its interpretation instead seems aimed at creating a cooling effect, in something of a lightly sweet peppermint accent. I see it suitable for fall and spring(could potentially work in some warmer winter days also), as it has some freshness that's balanced by a thick woody, vetiver and vanillic base. I think people mean and should be saying the gourmand term AMARETTO, which to me is accurate IYKYK, is sweet has the almond IDEA and!
