Summary: As I've said before, I am a complete devotee to Creed fragrances, and they're the only ones I'll buy... Herba Fresca was given to me as a gift, and I must say I really like it! Generally I'm a fan of more masculine scents (Creed Millesime Imperial is my go to, seconded by Creed Tabarome), but I LOVE the pure freshness of this one: not sweet or musky in the slightest, just FRESH.
Summary: Oh my word, this perfume is glorious. This may not be the most sophisticated scent in the world, but it smells amazing, and is just the right thing for a sunny spring or summer day. It smells of green leaves and mint, not a candy mint, but mint growing in a garden, leaves, stems and all. After the mint wears off there's a slight floral backdrop. Highly recommended to lovers of fresh, sunshiney scents.
Summary: If this kept on smelling like the opening, I would totally have bought it -- green, crisp, androgynous. It would have been the perfect summer scent. Unfortunately, the "green tea" accord developed about half an hour later into something that was an exact dupe of my memory of the bottles of Muguet de Bois elderly relatives used to buy for me when I was a preteen. I wasn't keen on it even then, and it's certainly not anything I'd wear now.
Summary: The smell isn't for everyone - to me it smells like sweet mint with a hint of grass - and I love it. I wear it to work since it is light and non-offensive. Also, for 2.5 oz of a premium brand scent, I think it is a steal.
