  1. Pure decadence. Like wow. This strikes me as a coffee-infused gourmet interpretation of s’mores that might appear on an expensive restaurant menu. I want to eat myself. This sort of gives me a sexy vibe because of that, strangely enough. It’s a sexy foodie. It makes me think of indulging all sorts of baser instincts, starting with this caloric one. It is gluttony captured in scent, so I suppose Vice is a good name for it too. Side note: My silly hesitation in buying this was because I own Vice from Hexennacht, and it is an altogether different kind of scent (that I also like). It’s funny how emotional and irrational perfume buying can be. Maybe I just love my vices! I’m okay with that. I really like the fact that this evokes an emotional response in me besides just foodie appreciation. I think I would use it often because of that. The coffee becomes a little more of the focal point as it wears, which I’m also okay with. It’s dark and rich and just slightly bitter. Delicious. I’ll call this a winner. It gets a slight mark down because it would likely be worn alone or with judicious perfume pairings, but honestly, it’s good enough that I don’t much care. I would 100% buy this again.

  2. This was immediately my favorite scent from my first order! I have the hair oil, and it smells amazing both in the bottle and on my hair. It smells like I dipped my hair in toasted marshmallows covered in chocolate and coffee. I thought it might be too sweet, but it’s not at all. It’s just a wonderful gourmand scent.The coffee isn’t too strong, or bitter. I need this in a perfume oil and pumpkin butter too!

  3. I smell wonderful, like I had a s’more with Nutella and coffee to wash it down. hazelnuts and chocolate start first, then get rounded out by the graham cracker, and when you are at the point of stopping sniffing the coffee comes out and seals the deal.

  4. Sadly I don’r get the coffee from this wet in the vial or on me at all…nothing. That being said, I can pick out the marshmallow, graham crackers, chocolate and the hazelnut. On me this really amps the hazelnut. It smells like strong hazelnut creamer. It’s actually quite yummy. This would be a good fall/winter/cold weather scent. What would’ve put it over the top is if I could catch whiffs of coffee but it’s nowhere to be found. Still a good sweet gourmand fall scent. HoG seems to really shine at sweet gourmand scents. Not always my thing but they do them so well that i’ve been converted once or twice before. This would be interesting to layer with other scents as well.

  5. This scent smells exactly (and I mean exactly!) like a coffee shop I used to go to as a child. For me, the coffee and chocolate notes stand out the most, though I think I can detect a bit of the marshmallow or the graham crackers as well. I really love this scent; it lasts several hours on me, is a great mix sweet and bitter notes, and is a good fragrance for cold days.

  6. I really get the coffee notes here! The hazelnuts and chocolate really help give it some beautiful sweetness, as does the marshmallow. I can’t really pick out all of those notes individually, but when they blend together, they form a really nice sweet melange of flavors. Mixed with the coffee, ahhh I wish I could eat this scent

  7. Delicious hazelbut coffee. The nuttiness rounds out the bitterness of the coffee beautifully. Sweetness comes from the graham crackers and marshmallow. Very dark chocolate melds with the bitterness of the coffee. It’s a lovely gourmand without being too sweet.

  8. I wore this today because it was a cold blustery day and this was a perfect cozy scent. I normally don’t like gourmands, but the coffee lends an earthy bitter note that perfectly tempers the sweetness. I get dark chocolate with coffee and a hint of roasted marshmallow and graham cracker.
