Peppermint and Pine smells like fresh pine needles backed by peppermint. The peppermint in this isn't sweet (it doesn't smell like pine plus a candy cane), and it's more pine than peppermint on both me and the boy.

 

I tried layering this with Stekkjarstaur and loved it paired with Stekk's marshmallow-y goodness. I also tried layering it with a peppermint marshmallow scent from another perfume house, which took the peppermint up a notch.

 

This is nice to wear on its own, but I am really excited about the layering possibilities with this one! The bottle is a keeper for sure! :)

I have been wanting a nice pine scent that doesn't go too powerful or ends up smelling like pine sol, and I was hoping this, with the peppermint, would be a good scent. Sniffing, I do get the pine and peppermint. On my skin, like all peppermint notes, it disappears and all I have is pine.. and it is just too much for me. Sadly this was a miss. Might be good for laying, as said above, but I amp the pine and just isn't for me.

Definitely more pine than peppermint.  I had expected (and kinda hoped) that this would be an aggressively camphorous, ultra icy scent but it really isn't.  It's fresh, clean, and surprisingly subtle.

 

It's not bad but I prefer Jersey Devil, which strikes me as colder somehow.

I thought I might be blown cold by the peppermint from this one, but I think like others, I got a different impression upon trying it.

 

I got a thin, faint pine, along with a slight cooling in the nose that represented the peppermint. The note was airy and cold and dry, but muted.

 

This duet was all-around thin for both my friend and I, and didn't really resonate for either of us. I hope to hear from her how it ages and changes from when we tried it.

This one is more pine than peppermint on me. At first, it's a blast of sharp pine, not pine cleaner, but as if I held a handful of freshly cut pine needles up to my nose. The peppermint isn't sweet, but dry somehow. Dries down quickly to a softer scent, which would make it a lot more wearable for me. However, the overall blend remains more pine and I just don't think it's my kind of scent. Might try the suggestion above to layer it with Stekk and see what happens. Glad I got a decant to try, but that is all I need of this one.

Peppermint on blast, and then it dries to a whiff of pine and peppermint. My skin just eats this up. Medium throw, low wear length.

This is much stronger in my decant than it is on my skin. I get a sharp pine in the decant with a small amount of peppermint. On my skin, I get an explosion of almost-mentholy peppermint and very woody pine before it quickly settles and fades quite a bit. This is very airy and dry smelling. It's not at all sweet, and definitely smells cold. Since my skin devours this, I probably won't wear it, but I'll find other uses for my decant because I do really enjoy the scent.
