Today I’ve got the counterpart to yesterday’s review: Chocolate Covered Apple Cider Doughnuts from Blooddrop.
The ever-popular Apple Cider Doughnut recipe plus a chocolate glaze.
In the vial, CCACD smells like waxy chocolate and an apple cinnamon candle. Yuck.
Wet on skin, the apple cider scent is the strongest, with a cocoa sweetness laid over top. At first it was less cinnamony than Apple Cider Doughnuts, but after a few minutes the cinnamon started to amp up again. The chocolate here is really off-putting… it’s like… watered down hot chocolate, weak and a little powdery and very artificial-smelling.
Once it’s dry, the chocolate mostly fades away and I’m left with an inoffensive apple cider scent with just a hint of cocoa. It’s a little spicy, but not nearly so cinnamon-heavy as Apple Cider Doughnuts.
Verdict: meh. I hated it at first, but the dry down is comparatively fine. I don’t like it, but it’s not a scrubber, either. Meh.
Elevator Pitch: This one starts off smelling like waxy chocolate and apple cinnamon candles, and dries to a sort of generic apple cider scent with just a hint of cocoa. Not too spicy.
