Checkmate by Mind Games is a Chypre Floral Tobacco fragrance for Women & Men.
An effervescent burst of champagne rushes to action in a dazzling sparkle of hope in Checkmate. Succulent and seductive fruits and florals follow, drawing on their reserves of willpower. As you experience the bliss of surrender, an intoxicating blend of tobacco and bourbon emerge. The memory of the battle fades as the ground cradles you in potent and rugged notes of earth, moss, and patchouli.

The only way I can describe this is happiness in a bottle. It's sitting in a luxurious rose garden in the spring, sipping champagne while your boyfriend smokes a cigar in the villa your staying in. It's stunning. Enchanting. Simply put. I would say it's more feminine leaning, but can definitely be worn by a male. Full bottle worthy and will be picking up one for my birthday!
To Scent Split: Please pick up Mind Games new drop that's coming in Sept asap. I will buy every single one of them <3
Most amazing Scent I have smelled in a long time
This scent smells amazing but it leans more feminine
I had a 2 ml sample & normally I’d use the full sample to test longevity & sillage but 1ml of Checkmate was enough to last a full 10 hour shift!! I got tons of compliments off of 1 ml!!! Crazy!!!! Today I used the last of the sample and again, I got two compliments walking into work. It is such a classy, romantic, rose scented fragrance. Maybe it last a long time on me bc I do layer it with rose scented shower gel, oil, lotion & fine fragrance mist prior to spraying the fragrance onto my skin & clothing.
This - & Delina - is on my Mother’s Day wishlist.
If you haven’t already done so, & even if you’re not a “rose” lover (nor am I) - I would absolutely get my nose on this! You’d be happy to do so!
