Dinner’s served! Very bright sharp citrus / sweet fruit introduction—seems like the whole fruit-candy store is here. The combined notes give off a feeling of energy and fun with its enjoyable gourmand qualities. This fragrance is quite strong in the sillage department—certainly not what I was expecting from a modern fragrance. The heart notes come on strong with all sorts of eatables—spice cakes and fruits. The fragrance loses a little energy as its base notes flow, but retains its gourmandism, and the memory lingers on. Bon appétit!
This is a fun scent - gingerbready, spicy, vivacious. I agree it has a sense of humor. And it also has a subtle sexy note, a submerged floral/base note that keeps it from being too 'foody', or it would have been lost to me. It's a nice blend - the spice, fruit, earth & floral meld into a spicy, juicy concoction with joie de vivre. It seems a perfect festive holiday fragrance. The cumin didn't come out as an identifiable note to me, but stayed part of the general spice environment. If the cumin had been distinct, I would have liked it less. Note: It is a strong, long-lasting fragrance, and isn't appropriate for many situations. I wore it on a tour of the Boeing Air Museum and bus ride, and it dominated the tour. I could hear people sniffing the entire time. It wasn't a bad smell - just overpoweringly Christmas kitchen. So... maybe not for tours in summertime :-)

Dinner has become one of my most worn scents, partly because it's such a rarity: a sexy scent with a sense of humour! The top notes remind me of Moscow Mule: (vodka,) ginger ale & lime, the heart notes are like spicy (dried or candied) fruit, the base is woody-earthy-animalic. IMO Dinner belongs to the same family as Rochas Femme and SL Arabie but is far less "serious". Great party scent, winter warmer and a compliment magnet!
Dinner by Bobo is such a fun fragrance. I don’t get the reviews some people give about it smelling like “Grease, Cheese, and BO”. This is a rich gourmand fragrance that is both sweet and spicy. The cumin helps make this fragrance as remarkable as it is. The closest fragrance I could ever compare it to is Arabie, but this is not nearly as strong, and not quite as rough; Dinner is soft, comforting, and daring at the same time. Very nice.
Very interesting unisex scent. Very sweet scent for me to like but I do! Has a kinda "sweet cola" note in there along with many others. Interesting and lasts for ever! Nab a bottle if you see one I say!
