Cocoa Pink Peppermint Hot Cocoa Review

Brand: Cocoa Pink
Availability: General Catalog Autumn/Winter (N/A in Spring/Summer)
Notes: A steaming mug of creamy hot chocolate infused with a peppermint stick.

First impression out of bottle: Altoid chocolate mints

Freshly applied: Medicinal salve and bandaids

Drydown: Real minty smell coming out now, it was definitely turning medicinal/bandage-y in the opening, but it's sweet and good now. I can detect a hint of chocolate, yes but it's mostly sweet peppermint. This smells like those "chocolate" candy canes that have a bare hint of chocolatey flavor. So I'd say this is a foodie, gourmand mint but it's not a true chocolate mint. 

After several hours: Sweet peppermint with a teensy bit of cocoa. A little watery though. The same way Sixteen92 Grimm is watery-chocolatey on me. 

Longevity: High

Sillage: Low medium

Would an [X] lover love this? Meh, this is a little watery for a true mint lover. Nothng super gourmand OR super fresh/earthy, it's just sort of...there.

Would an [X] hater love this? This is not going to be The Mint Scent that makes you a believer.

Where am I? Sitting in my 7th grade classroom, eating shitty candy canes on the last day before Christmas break. 

Where would I wear this? Daytime, maybe. I wouldn't wear it though, it's not quite punchy or special enough.
