I've tried both the Jason one and the Alba cocoa butter lotions. I didn't find that either had a pure cocoa scent. The Alba was better but comes in such a small bottle. Anyone know of a bigger bottle one that smells cocoa buttery?

ETA: I gave up and went and got Vaseline Intensive Care Cocoa Butter lotion. It works and smells great and is cheap but I was hoping for a natural alternative. I will keep looking.

I thought Palmers had a stick of cocoa butter which smelt cocoa ish, or something in a stick anyway.

You could of course get natural cocoa butter, warm and melt it, and add some carrier oils to it, so it is softer and easier to use!

We just made some lip balm and deodorant the other night. It was the first time I used my natural cocoa butter. It came in a round plastic tub, hard of course. We grated it to melt for the lip balm, and it started melting in my hand as I grated. It was lovely - I just rubbed it on my arms. You could just buy a small "brick" of it and grate it into a container. I don't remember that distinct cocoa butter smell, and I suspect that is because the commercial lotions use a manufactured fragrance to create that smell (and/or I bought a cheaper grade of cocoa butter).
