There it is. Look at it standing there in all of its innocent minty glory. As soon as I got my hands on the body lotion I eagerly opened the top and took a gentle whiff ... and the experience was Wow. I'm not sure if it was 'only on the shelves for one week' wow, but definitely a capital letter Wow.
Its Fresh. Its Tasty. Its York Peppermint Pattie. Yum. The fragrance hits you with this wonderfully strong and refreshing peppermint while it has this gentle undertone of chocolate (and it isn't a cheap cocoa hit, but notes of dark chocolate). For my first sniff out-of-the-bottle-in-the-store, I am very impressed with this fragrance.
At home and on the arms, I can confirm that BBW definitely got its inspiration for Twisted Peppermint from York's "Get the sensation!" tagline. The scent is still wonderfully fresh and vibrantly peppermint with a subtle chocolate tone underneath, but on the skin the lotion has a cooling effect and it is almost a bit tingly in its refreshment. It is definitely a sensation that adds a dynamic dimension to the fragrance and the body lotion as a whole.
So, while I'm not sure I want to walk around smelling like a York Peppermint Pattie, if you can get your hands on it, I really do recommend this body lotion - if not just to be able to say that you did!
*As a side note, they had a BOGOF deal going on so I also picked up the Twisted Peppermint Fragrance Mist. It smells of fresh paint and is a huge disappointment - don't waste your time or money (even if it's free!) on this one.
