Peppermint, the star of A * Men Kryptomint perfume
“A * Men Kryptomint” is a fragrance between myth and reality. The composition begins with the intense freshness of peppermint. Born in the Middle East, peppermint comes from a hybrid between two species of mint, namely water mint and spearmint. Peppermint owes its name to its smell, which is of course very strongly peppery. Mint is a perennial plant that measures between 40 and 60cm high. The leaves are oval and serrated, dark green in color. It was in the 18th century that peppermint became famous in Europe. It is then used for its many therapeutic virtues. In perfumery, the essence of peppermint is obtained by steam distillation of the leaves that have just flowered. It offers very fresh, herbaceous and peppery tones.
Then, the heart of “A * Men Kryptomint” takes on geranium which brings here its flowery and green side. Native to South Africa, geranium is one of the perennials that adorn our balconies. In 1672, the geranium was brought from South Africa to the Netherlands. In the 18th century, geraniums can be found in many European gardens. In perfumery, geranium gives off floral, spicy, minty and rosy tones. Masculine and sensual, the base of “A * Men Kryptomint” is composed of patchouli and tonka bean. As for the bottle, it uses the main codes of its predecessor. It is nevertheless tinted for the occasion in mint blue, with its famous green star.
