  1. Ugh this is gorgeous. Dark, mysterious. The patchouli is the most prominent note, liberally dusted with unsweetened cocoa powder. The resins add a touch of sweetness but not enough that this could be confused for a gourmand. It has a strong earth magic feeling to it.

  2. This is a very “dark” scent. It is deep and rich. I mostly smell the patchouli with an underlying dark bitter chocolate. I would not say this is a sweet scent at all. I am not a huge patchouli fan, I only like it in certain scents and this one is just a bit too patchouli heavy for me. My mother who adores patchouli absolutely loves this one though!

  3. I love this perfume! All of the notes go together so well. It kind of smells like a candy made of dark chocolate with a raspberry filling, with an ever-present, cozy base note of patchouli. Sometimes I smell raspberry filling, but today I’m wearing it and I smell warm raw honey instead. Either way, it’s so great. It’s not too heavy or musky, but it’s still mature enough.
