twistedpeppermint bottles

Good Ol’ Twisted Peppermint.  I get so many compliments about this scent when I wear it.  The bottle says “A tempting blend of cool, refreshing mint, white sugar, and just a hint of rich vanilla”.

  It may seem a bit strong when you open it to smell it but once it’s on your skin you get two surprises!  1. it’s soothing.  I can feel it tingling on my skin after about 30 seconds to a minute.  It’s so nice to use in the morning to pep me up for work and if I use it in the evening to relax my tired muscles.  2. At least for me, when it dries down you get a soft minty and vanilla scent that lasts for hours!  During the day, I get hints of peppermint/vanilla and I literately will think what is that wonderful smell.  Takes me just a second to realize, it’s ME!twistedpeppermint showergel

One of my friends (also a B&BW user) asked if I had a little bottle that I had used to reapply, when I told her no she was impressed! She uses Vanilla Bean Noel during the holidays and never tired Twisted Peppermint probably because it smells so strong in the bottle.

  This year, Twisted Peppermint was out for a limited time.  I think they had it on the website for a bit longer than they carried it in the stores, which is a shame.  I can’t believe they would take a way such a wonderful fragrance so quickly.  Especially since it could be used all winter, not just in December.  Perhaps I will be able to get some during the semi annual sale.
