This smells like hot cocoa that's heavy on the marshmallows - not really a straight-up marshmallow scent but rather marshmallows mixed with a bit of hot chocolate. While it's not my absolute favorite Philosophy 3 in 1, it's very smooth and comforting and perfect for winter.

I love the smell of this one. It is perfect for the cold weather when it's sooo cold that you have to take a hot shower or bath to warm up. The scent smells very yummy in a marshmellow chocolate sort of way.

Not what I expected. I purchased on Sephora and they only described this scent as "melting marshmallow" I was thinking this would be an ultra sweet vanilla marshmallow scent, maybe toasted or with some other rich undertone. The bottle itself comes with a description on the label of Philosophy's idea of what a melting marshmallow smells like. It says: "When you think of melting marshmallows, picture toasted marshmallows over a crackling fire, or marshmallows melting in a cup of double rich hot cocoa, or just ooey gooey marshmallow cream coming out of a jar onto a spoon into your mouth, yum, yum" So basically this is a chocolate scented marshmallow product. It doesn't smell like marshmallow cream from a jar, or a toasted marshmallow, it just smells like a malted or slightly soured type chocolate. Its not horrible, but I would have never ordered this had I knew what it really smelled like. Like everyone on the bath & body board has already said, it smells a lot like Suave's seasonal Whipped Cocoa scent. For the money its not worth it, its not a unique or must have winter scent. It doesn't linger on my skin. If I had to pick between Philosophy's two 2010 winter marshmallow scents, I would go with Crispy Marshmallow Bars, only because it has a more marshmallow scent or vanilla scent vs the chocolate in this one. This one doesn't have the weird notes in it like Crispy marshmallow, but its completely light chocolate. How chocolately is this? If they were to re-label this product as "hot cocoa or hot chocolate" It would have fit the scent better than melting marshmallow. I think a teenager or kid would love this scent, but its not for me. Gives a light lather, light moisture.
The packaging for the melting marshmallow mini kit is adorable! It features real pictures with glitter, and is shaped like a an A-frame cottage, with a gold ribbon for the handle. The scent & packaging is a great idea from Philosophy but I feel the scent was way off & the products only give off a decent smell in their containers not on the skin.
*For reference the lotion smells just like this, but the melting marshmallow lip gloss smells more vanilla & marsmallow-y but with a malted (soured) chocolate note that doesn't smell good as a lipgloss. *
