    Really like this scent. It's got a clean citrus smell - not just orange or lemon - so it's more grown up.

      Comments about Le Couvent Des Minimes Eau Des Minimes Botanical Fragrance:

      I will never buy another fragrance. I am donating all my old fragrances to a women's shelter. It is not at all overpowering, which I love. It smells like actually plants and fruit, not a chemical concoction.
      So so good. It doesn't last super long, so I bought a fillable atomizer so I can keep it in my purse.

      Comments about Le Couvent Des Minimes Eau Des Minimes Botanical Fragrance:

      There is something gorgeous about this scent soon after it's sprayed into the air. It also smells amazing on the skin. However, it is not strong enough and does not last long enough. I can see why people compare it to Jean Nate because it is similar in terms of its freshness and lemon notes. However, I think this scent is much more sensual and elusive. Bien fait, French nuns!

        Comments about Le Couvent Des Minimes Eau Des Minimes Botanical Fragrance:

        I got this cologne for my husband because he loves fresh, citrusy scents. He uses it after he gets out of the shower and sprays it all over his body. The fragrance really does last all day, but in a subtle way, not overpowering at all. I love that the scent seems to change throughout the day; first it's very crisp and you can really smell the blood orange, but in the evening you can smell the neroli. Great value for the amount of cologne in the bottle. Will definitely try other products from this brand.

          I love this stuff! It smells great, and you can use it everywhere. Because it doesn't have any harsh additives, I even use it in my hair. Without me knowing what it would do, it helps tame the frizz-bonus!

            I have been looking for a "signature scent" and a friend recommended this. It reminds me of what I wore in the '70's. It's very lemony and I love it. No compliments yet, but I'm not giving up!

                Fresh, clean and uplifting scent. I've used it for years and get lots of positive comments. I just wish it was a little less costly and that the scent lasted somewhat longer (a different, more concentrated form perhaps?)
