I am so damn happy that winters have started to arrive because I can feel the waves of chills coming from my window, and yes, my skin has started to turn dry! They say there is no winter in Mumbai, but I can feel it. I feel cold very quickly and don’t be surprised, but I do wear hoodies and bomber jackets during winter nights. Hence when it is all wintery around, I spotted the perfect winter scent. B&BW has designed this specially for the winter and Christmas, so why not try it as the season looks perfect!
And with the first snowfall, the holidays arrive by special delivery! The world becomes a cozy snow-kissed village where unexpected magic happens. Come together with the ones you love and share the wonder of the season. Share the sweetness of the season with twisted peppermint with whimsical twist on a holiday favourite.
Cool peppermint, sugared snow, vanilla butter-cream, fresh balsam, hint of musk

My Experience with Bath and Body Works Twisted Peppermint Fine Fragrance Mist:
I have used ample of B&BW body mists and lotions and would definitely say that no brand can really beat this one. They have innovated amazingly and have totally captured all the attention as far as body mists and lotions are concerned. Talking about this one, the body mist comes in a transparent bottle which is filled with deep pink liquid which gives it that colour. A similar coloured cap adds spice to the bottle. The label has a white stripe with peppermint sparks and snowflakes falling from it. It looks very pretty and gives a very cute Christmas feel. It is pretty heavy and huge in size, so cannot be easily carried, but somehow I will carry it because I love their fragrances.
The bottle is a see-through one which makes it easy for us to consider when to restock. Coming to the fragrance, when I spritzed it at first, it gives out a very strong burst of peppermint which made me feel that maybe this is not ‘my’ kind of smell because it was very overpowering. But soon it settled down after 5 minutes and it became bearable. It smells very much like sweet and sugary candy canes which we all are having since our childhood. They taste very strong when put into the mouth but as you keep eating, they turn mild and mild – it works the same way with this. The fragrance is very minty and very much suitable for winters. It is very cooling and has a frosty touch. After quite some time, it settles down to a sugary base mixed with vanilla, with a musky base.
The base smell is mild and decent too. But one thing I noticed about this is that you know it smells similar to a guy who has smoked and then chewed some minty gums. You know the kind of smell you get from smokers; this is the exact smell which is why I don’t love this. It stays very strong on the clothes for the initial hour and in total lasts for like 4 hours on my clothes. It lasts only an hour on my skin. But I think it will last longer with a lotion. It mildly stays on the skin for the entire day. I think 4-5 spritz were enough for it to last upto 4-5 hours. This fragrance is suitable more during the night time I feel, and only for winters. It may smell a bit weird during summers. Well concluding, I would say that it is a nice winter scent to stock up on, but the peppermint might give a headache, so sniff it before buying!
Pros of Bath and Body Works Twisted Peppermint Fine Fragrance Mist:
• The bottle looks super gorgeous in pink with snowflakes and peppermint glitters over it
• Quantity is something everyone will be ready to pay for
• Very convenient-to-use spray nozzle and 4-5 spritz will be enough for a time
• The fragrance smells like red and white candy canes
• It smells very crisp, fresh, minty and strong initially, but soon settles to a musky, vanilla base
• It is perfect for winters, especially during night time
• The fragrance lasts upto 4 hours and then you need to respray it to get that strong minty smell
Cons of Bath and Body Works Twisted Peppermint Fine Fragrance Mist:
• Bottle is really huge, so not travel friendly
• Availability is an issue
• This has a peppermint smell that can give you a headache
• It smells really strong initially; so try before you buy
• It makes me smell like a smoker who chews minty gums and roams around, which is why I don’t love it
Would I Repurchase/Recommend Bath and Body Works Twisted Peppermint Fine Fragrance Mist?
Although I loved the smell, I will finish it up this winter and wouldn’t come back to it because this I not something that I can like for long. Also this smell won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, so do not buy it without sniffing.
I will be stocking up some more of these amazing fragrances as I love playing with these everyday!
