“Oh the ecstasy! If you ever saw Amadeus, you would know what I am alluding to*. The fabulous confection from Italy with all the whimsy that country can muster, and that would be mighty.

  1. I get chocolate covered cherries (I realize there are no berry notes listed, and yet…). It’s delectable. Reminds me of walking into a Godiva store. As it dries, the buttercream is more pronounced and it gets slightly sweeter and more round. While it isn’t high pitched sugary, it is still unabashedly gourmand and scrumptious. Low throw and wears pretty close on me.

  2. Hmm this is giving me vibes of Chocolate Incense and Moonbux. Like Moonbux, there’s an underlying note (some kind of cream or milk note?) that turns to plastic on my skin. The accompanying notes are doing a decent job of beating it back but while it’s there and it annoys me. It goes away after an hour or so. Unfortunately this isn’t dark chocolate on me but more of a tootsie roll note. I was hoping to get the gardenia note but it’s not showing up on me. I don’t feel like I need a FS of this since I have other oils that are so similar. Now I’m wondering how this would smell layered with an additional gardenia note? I just have to find one I like to try it out. Once this settles down on me, it smells like a less creamy version of Moonbux with some mocha or milk chocolate in the mix. If you’re into chocolate, mocha or coffee then this is a good one to try. Jealous of those who get the gardenia to show up on their skin.

  3. This was sent to me as a sample, & I had to let it sit for a few weeks since I think it experienced “mail shock” from being shipped during the summer heat & taking longer to arrive because of post office issues.

    When I tested it a couple of days ago, it had morphed into an aphrodisiac. Good lord. Not kidding. I dabbed a little in my hair & on my neck & then accidentally spilled a little on the rug next to where my husband was sitting. He, smiling, immediately started sniffing my neck. Deep, darkest, aromatic chocolate, chestnut, & some rich, slightly sweet, creaminess along with ElBandido’s mention of “a tint of dark coffee.” Must get a bottle. LOVE this.

  4. I *honestly* can’t believe I haven’t tried this perfume sooner. This perfume is SO good, I physically can’t sniff this fragrance without wanting to pull the smell deep into my lungs (and I admit, as soon as I took my first sniff–my instant reaction was to gasp out, “SHUT. UP.” because it’s INSANE how anyone could create such a good rendition of a chocolate truffle). It starts off smelling like an ultra-dark and earthy chocolate (like 90% cocoa), which makes an amazing contrast with the smooth (and non-cloying) ganache and steamed chestnut (oh, and I can smell gardenia petals in this damn thing. And a tiny tint of dark coffee). This is a gourmand for gourmand-haters, it doesn’t *dare* to go saccharine-sweet on my skin–because the ‘bitter dark chocolate’ helps tone the sweetness down and leaves me smelling like an ultra-fancy (and immaculate) chocolatier. Seriously, anyone who loves chocolate NEEDS to try this!
