Paintbox Soapworks The Black Heart Sorbetto
The Black Heart is all about the coffee, and I love it to bits. It's dark, dark, dark coffee with a spicy sweetness, and nothing creamy, candy or bakery about it. There's a bit of dark cocoa in there, and the patchouli and pepper notes come out more on the skin than in the tub. Mostly, it's the coffee though, and this is Monmouth Coffee, not Starbucks. (If you are ever in London and you like coffee, I really recommend trying the coffee from the Covent Garden shop.)
I've loved the previous limited edition Paintbox Soapworks blends that use coffee as an accent (Avast! and Smiling Jack) and I love it as centre stage in The Black Heart.
This is still available in the PaintBox Soapworks Etsy shop here: The Black Heart Sorbetto, but the limited edition for Valentine's is coming to a close to make way for Spring limited editions.
