Peppermint is so commonly used as a flavoring agent that almost everyone is familiar with its smell and taste. In perfumery, it is usually used in trace amounts, generally only up to 1% in the formula. The main use in perfume is to give freshness and "lift".

However, at higher dosages it adds a distinctive note to the perfume and at even lower amounts there remains a delicate sweet, balsamic quality that is difficult to replicate.

You'll often find peppermint oil in lavender scents (provides lift and freshness), fougeres, geranium bases, etc.
