BPAL Madness!

Buttery cake and chocolate Andes mints fresh on, with a bit of true Lick It! like peppermint candy coming to the forefront.  The Andes mint chocolate fades pretty quick, perhaps that's the white chocolate angle, and then it gets some of the buttery vanilla ice cream notes like Detestable Putrescence, but then it settles and still gives me a strong Andes mint vibe.  Weirdly, after the initial whoosh of the ice cream richness, it goes a bit dark chocolate dry again and then...

 

Oh, yes, this is Thin Mints.

 

Oh maaaaaaan

Thin mint ice cream.

 

This is perfect. I was hoping for a certain kind of foody peppermint and this is exactly what I wanted. The chocolate isn't the honeyed cloying sort, it's just nice. Peppermint is the star here but is softened around the edges by a bit of chocolate and some ice cream. Delicious. Dries down to sprinklecake ice cream 💖 

 

And then disappears. No longevity. Maybe aging will help.

This makes me think of Christmas! It’s like crushed soft peppermints (the good stuff) over creamy vanilla and white chocolate ice cream.

Crushed peppermint over vanilla cake. It reminds me to a foodier version of Lick It With Consent. I sort of am really digging this. Medium throw and wear length.

In the bottle: I'm getting sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet cupcakey notes. On, wet: Peppermint and white chocolate notes start to open up pretty quickly, along with a deepening of the "cake" note. Drydown: This dries down to a sort of buttercream mint frosting on me. Not what I expected but a really fun gourmand.

Absolutely delicious. Sweet, creamy peppermint chocolate, rather light, being ya know, white chocolate. Once on my skin I get more of a light vanilla cake note. Tempted to eat.

Came for Thin Mint ice cream, but what I got is white chocolate chips folded into vanilla cake batter with an eensy drop of peppermint flavoring. Cute! The name/label got the Dragon Tales theme song stuck in my head, so now I have that association with this perfume.

I'm so glad I blind bottled Dragon Slide. :wub2: It features Lick It's peppermint candy, accompanied by some white chocolate (it's definitely white chocolate and not a milk or dark chocolate to my nose) and birthday cake ice cream. The mint is prominent, but not bracing -- it has a cooling effect, but it doesn't burn. The sprinklecake ice cream is stronger on me than the white chocolate, making it a creamy, cake-y minty scent that I'd probably put in the same mint family as Snowblind (the atmo, not the perfume oil, which smells entirely different to me -- the atmo has a rice krispie/yellow cake feel to it that I love). In other words, it's amazing.

 

If you love the Lab's mint scents, you need this one in your life.

When I saw this scent, I knew it would be my purchase from the Lilith collection this year. Peppermint and white chocolate? Hell yes!

 

Bu after testing it, all I get is super thick, gooey, uncooked cake batter with waxy sugar sprinkles. And it is dead-on. This is not a bad thing - I love sprinkle cake - just unexpected. The white chocolate and mint is nowhere to be found.

 

Oh well, I can always use more cake in my life.

Wet: Gloppy cake batter, and mint

 

Drydown: Holy Andes mints, Batman. There is an undercurrent of white chocolate, and still a bit of cakey goodness.

 

Dry: Predominantly mint.

 

Overall: On my skin, this is less sweet than the Lick It series. It is cheerful and refreshing, with minimal throw.
