Cocoa Pink Vampire's Lament Review

Brand: Cocoa Pink
Availability: General Catalog Autumn/Winter (N/A in Spring/Summer)
Notes: Luscious strawberry milkshake essence spiked with white amber, metallic white musk then finished off with a splash of creamy vanilla.

First impression out of bottle: Pure strawberry

Freshly applied: Strawberry vanilla ice cream

Drydown: Strawberry milk shake, all the way. A hint of perfumed amber and musk comes out and makes this fruity blend a little more sophisticated. I feel like I kind of get the "metallic" musk note but maybe not. It's not unpleasant, and it doesn't smell like machinery. Just kind of bright and cold. I love how this was so fruity/foodie at first but has morphed into a more perfumey version of a strawberry shake. 

After several hours: Same, less strawberry, more musk and amber.

Longevity: High
Sillage: Medium High

Would an [X] lover love this? Definitely good for those who want something heavy on the strawberry but with some other surprising elements.

Would an [X] hater love this? I think berry haters won't like this interpretation- while it's not strictly 100% fruity, the amber/musk elements are quite sweet. They make the perfume more sophisticated IMO but not more wearable for those who dislike sweet scents.

Where am I? Savoring a strawberry milkshake at an ice cream fountain lunch counter

Where would I wear this? Daytime, work, summer. It's a warm weather perfume IMO, it reminds me a lot of going to get ice cream after a day spent at the library.
