Hot cocoa with a bit of mint

Amazing holiday scent! Smells like hot cocoa with a splash of peppermint. 10/10 for cold throw and hot throw. Customer favorite.


Needs a better hot throw

This is more akin to a hot cocoa. I think it smells great! but the HT was minimal which was weird as sweet scents tend to do so well with soy wax. I used 464 and this barely smelled like anything in HT.

I Love this scent. The HT and CT are both really strong. I feel like the HT is strong on the mocha side and the pouring the fragrance in the was is strong on the peppermint side. Can't wait for my customers to try it.



The fragrance definitely match the name. I will cut back the exact measurements on the fragrance with my butter. To me it has a more minty spell with minimum mocha.


Works for me

I thought the scent was strong on peppermint than the mocha part, but not bad. It smells like the chocolate peppermin hard candies with the brown and green swirl. Burned great for me at 8% in soy wax.



Wow, this FO smells SO good. The HT and CT are both really strong. I think this is going to be a great seller this holiday season!



This is hands down my favorite fragrance from candle science! It smells so yummy. I want to eat it so bad! Smells exactly like what peppermint mocha would smell like. I can't get enough of this fragrance! 12/10!!


So strong!

This is a powerhouse. It smells exactly like a peppermint mocha. I would even reduce your normal fragrance load with this one.


Smells so Nice

This is a good scent especially when it's cold outside.


Rich and Delightful

I tested this fragrance in soap. The description said 0% vanillin. It did turn dark. The fragrance is lovely.



love love love this scent, right out of the bottle it smells exactly how you’d expect peppermint mocha to smell. definitely my favorite out of every fragrance i’ve ever bought. it makes me want to celebrate christmas early

Bella R.

I absolutely love this scent ALL YEAR LONG. I do like the last formula a bit better then this one but i still love it.



Once in the wax the smell isnt as strong. Perfect smell!

I use GB 464 wax and 10% FO - the scent in bottle is a bit much, but the CT/HT is beautiful. I gave out my first candles in the scent to friends and family to get input on how it preformed other than just my own opinion and I got really positive reviews. I will definitely be keeping this one as one of my annual Christmas options. If you're not into Mint Chocolate, you won't like this, but if you do like it then you will love it!

Peppermint mocha is one of my favorite smells for the holidays so I got really excited when it came in the mail. After I made a couple candles, I was sadly disappointed with the results of the cold and hot throw and the smell in general. It doesn't smell anything like Peppermint mocha which made me sad because I was going to make Peppermint mocha candles for my family for. Christmas.

I do not recommend this scent.

Much better in the wax than in the bottle!

I purchased this fragrance in the 1 oz. size to test it. When I opened the bottle, I was hit with an overpowering, cloying chocolate smell. (I was glad that I only purchased an ounce.) But when I added the fragrance to the hot wax, the peppermint smell released and balanced out the chocolate smell. I was pleasantly surprised and found myself really liking the scent. When I burned the candle, the scent was a little lighter than I would have liked; however, I only used a 4% fragrance load so I will go for 6% next time. It just goes to show, you can't judge a book by its cover or a fragrance by its bottle scent.


The most delicious smell

I love this fragrance oil. It is heavier on the peppermint and chocolate and lighter on the coffee notes than I had expected, but delicious none the less. I used this in 464 with a 6% fragrance loading and got wonderful cold and hot throw. Everyone who smells this says its fantastic. I purchased the 1oz size to test this out, but will be purchasing a larger size soon.


I LOVE this scent. It's been a #1 seller for me these past 2 Christmases. Performs great in soy wax melts, whipped soap, sugars scrub and bath bombs. And my customers adore it. They order multiples at a time, they are that committed. I was worried when the formula change happened but I like it just as well and so do my clientele.



I brought this fragrance thinking it would be this amazing smell and after making my candles it smell like booty. I don’t like that at all!

This is the clean version of peppermint bark and it's such a disappointment. The chocolate is overbearing on the peppermint and there is little to no hot throw. I wish they would have just made a peppermint! If you like the combo of peppermint and chocolate though, you will love this. Just make to sure to order more than you plan to so the throw is really apparent with the burn.


Everyone is different

This scent sounded like it would be wonderful but when I got it, I was so disappointed. But, because everyone likes different smells, I took it to my daughter's house for her to test-smell. She loved it!! And her 12 year old daughter said it's her favorite scent! So I made them candles and they were thrilled. It all depends on personal preference.


I was really excited about this scent and the cold throw was great, but absolutely no hot throw. Wasted a bunch of wax and tins making these based on the reviews but can't sell a single one.



Love this scent and so do my customers. Good cold and hot throw! Smells just like a peppermint mocha!


Very Strong

This scent is not appeasing to me at all. Smells off, not using it for the holiday season. Smells very strong, too much mocha, not enough peppermint.

Handcrafted By Netty

didn't actually discolor

I made a christmas CP soap anticipating a dark brown result like the product page said- it was actually a light tan. not what I wanted visually, so I was a bit disappointed. the scent is great, but I would have added brown color to the soap batter if I had known, so it would have turned a cocoa brown.



This candle scent was amazing! Smelt so good in the bottle and in my candles! They sold so fast!!!

Sweet smells candle company

Perfect for the Holidays

This scent is amazing... I got the 1oz to sample and instantly made it into a candle and bought a 4oz. Great smell and does not have that fake peppermint smell... it’s the real thing! Thanks so much for such a wonderful fragrance!

Catherine, Owner of Wicked Wicks NW

Delicious, but needs a better throw...

This oil smells absolutely wonderful. I just made a test batch. I don’t know if I will buy more, because it doesn’t have a strong hot through. I used it in 464 soy wax & used both wooden & regular wicks.



On my quest to test out new oils to go with my Christmas theme, I decided to give this a go. The review on mocha being prominent caused me to add a touch of Peppermint and Eucalyptus and let me tell you something... AMAZING!! That may seem a little crazy, but it works and I definitely recommend giving it a shot for a nice balance of both the peppermint and mocha.

I took a stab in thw sark and secided to try this scent and I am totally in love with this scent, wish i could bathe in it🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩, I would definitely recommend this to anyone


Loving this fragrance

I love this FO! Perfect balance of peppermint and mocha. I’m still getting orders for it



this is got to be one of my favorite scent from Candlescience it has such a warm buttery smell combined with peppermint and chocolate you will be in love with this scent.


Very Disappointed - Should be called Coffee Mocha

The old Peppermint Bark was my all time favorite. I was so disappointed when it was discontinued. Tried the new one and although it does smell nice, it doesn't compare at all. All I smell is coffee and chocolate. I got a faint smell of peppermint when I was making my candles/melts, but once they are lit/melted, it smells like a coffee shop. No peppermint whatsoever. Again, they still smell nice, but the name is misleading. Please bring back something with more of a peppermint scent.


Smells EXACTLY like a peppermint mocha!

I added this scent to our line-up this winter season. We are receiving wonderful reviews from our customers regarding this scent. It is so spot on.


Not the best

I hate leaving a less than perfect review because I like Candlescience so much. I wanted to love this one but the hot throw just wasn't there. However, it smelled delicious out of the bottle. I don't make soaps, but maybe it would be better for that.


Reminiscent of Peppermint Bark, but not quite as good

***I normally use this fragrance for holiday soap***
While this scent is a good combination of peppermint and mocha, it is heavier on the chocolate side than what I was looking for. I LOVED the previous Peppermint Bark, which was lighter on the chocoate notes. But I still love trying all the fragrances! I might try it as a candle this time instead of soap.


Scent Winner

This is a great scent and works very well with soy wax. It has a great throw and very popular!


Great CT low HT

I made two of these to test and while I absolutely LOVE the cold throw-perfect blend of peppermint and mocha, the only hot throw I have is if I stand near the candle and even then it’s underwhelming. I am used to having strong hot throws from CS oils but this one missed the mark for me. I’m glad I only tried this vs making a bunch for holiday sales and have disappointed customers.

Can Not say enough good things

Let me start by saying I usually stay away from food related scents in my products... but being a business owner we all know its not always about what we like but what our customers like. When I seen this scent... I thought... okay, I need to come up with my Christmas scents asap, so I ordered this. It smells so good I cannot stand it! I just made an oatmeal whip for the face and used this... I bet I have washed my hands with it at least 10 times already! It smells so yummy, I am amazed... !! So glad I decided to try it. I just ordered another food related scent, so I will see how that one goes. I am very impressed with CandleScience scents...



I admit I am a fan of both peppermint and mocha and CS nailed it on this one. The FO does not overwhelmingly favor peppermint or mocha but is a perfect marriage of the two fragrances. This is my go-to morning candle. Great job! Rick Maloney, Owner, Pour and Penchant

Rick Maloney

amazing fragrance!

I agree with the OOB meh comment. Get it into candles and soap. It's amazing. Will be purchasing more of this. A++

Lillian Newman

I judged way to soon!

I did a review a few hours ago saying that this FO smells like fudge brownies and that I could barely smell the peppermint. After making soap and candles with it, I was blown away! The peppermint instantly cleared up my stuffy nose!!! It’s strong but not too overpowering and smells so yummy and cozy. I love it.


Smells like fudge brownies

I like the smell. But it does not have a peppermint or mocha scent at all. It smells like freshly baked fudge brownies! It’s a good scent tho, just need a name change because the name of the scent is deceiving!



I bought the peppermint mocha scent from the 99cent sale. I absolutely love this scent. I made soap using it. It smells amazing in the soap. Next up is bath bombs. I can't wait to see how all of my customers react. Most definitely will purchase more of this. It makes me think of sitting by a fire and watching the snow as I drink warm peppermint mocha. :) Thank you.



Peppermint Mocha is an invigorating scent that smells exactly like mint chocolate coffee! Every sniff makes me crave a warm mug of mint chocolate coconut milk. Peppermint Mocha differs from Peppermint Bark with a hint of coffee and richer cocoa scent to my nose, but is just as lovely. It’s plenty strong with the maximum amount of fragrance in GB 444. The negative reviews surprised me, but they always do because I’m not love with only one CS fragrance. Also, I appreciate that every scent is someone’s work of art. I understand that every nose is different and people get attached to oils, but phthalate and prop 65 eliminations are worth slight differences and some oils being discontinued.



Love this fragrance!! It's a smooth, delicious, warm, comforting winter scent. I also loved Peppermint Bark, but do understand the need to discontinue fragrances & add new ones (have had to do it myself for various reasons on a much smaller scale). The upside to not having Peppermint Bark now is that hopefully some day it'll come back & can be marketed as a blast from the past!



I dont understand the discontinuing of scent and replacing it with something that is not as good. Ive been forced to by elsewhere due to to all the difficulties in discontinuance. Mainly Lavender Chamomile, this was a huge seller for me for a B2B account and it took forever finding what I needed.

Pittsburgh Soy Candle

Doesnt smell like peppermint or mocha

It smells okay, just smells like chocolate/fudge. I dodnt get a hint of mocha or peppermint. Could just be me though


Owner, Pare Candle Company

We were pleasantly surprised at how much we enjoyed this fragrance as we've been testing for our fall and holiday candles. We have not previously used Peppermint Bark, so I cannot speak to those previous comparison reviews. I will say that this fragrance stands out as unique in a sea of apple, pumpkin and evergreen fragrances. We plan to add this to our line and see how it goes. It's not overly sweet, and the peppermint, chocolate and vanilla notes come through nicely in our soy and coconut wax blend that we create. I only gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because I'm not sure how it will sell yet. We love Candlescience!


Pine Forest Candles

I agree with a previous review, this fragrance doesn't compared to Peppermint Bark. Very disappointed to see that fragrance replaced by this one. Even my customers, who I gave samples to, did not like it. Sad to see so many of the fragrances I did really like, being replaced or discontinued:(


SO SPOT ON! FIVE STARS! Smells exactly like a starbucks peppermint mocha.

Very true scent! Peppermint mocha smells just like I thought it would.


This is no replacement for Peppermint Bark, which you suggest, I was selling P. Bark wonderfully. Why are yoiu discontinuing so many great fragrances?
