[Review] Arcana - Peppermint Candy Flip


Collection: Lady Justice
Status: Unavailable
Purchased: 1ml decant through Ajevie's Circles

Notes: A psychedelic blast of cold peppermint dries down to a trippy candy center of blue frosting, sugar cookies, pink musk, blueberry candy, bakery vanilla, bergamot syrup, and lemondrops.

In the vial: Very strong peppermint. There's a hint of lemon and I get something sweet, marginally resembling marshmallow.

On my skin: This becomes all about the citrus! My skin tends to amp citrus notes when first applied and for several minutes it overpowers the peppermint. This fades not long after though, and the dry down is a musky peppermint with the vanilla making an appearance and becoming stronger as it wears.

Throw: Low
Longevity: After four hours I get the faintest whiff of peppermint if I sniff my wrist

Summary: Heavy citrus and cool peppermint for starters, drying down to a minty, musky vanilla.

Verdict: While I don't hate this scent, I don't love it either. The citrus note is too overpowering on my skin and I can't see myself ever reaching for the vial again. I'll probably de-stash this.
