The initial burst of chocolate is almost startling reminding me of a 'Jaffa' a chocolate coated mandarin confectionary eaten at cinemas in Australia. For this outrageous opening, alone, 'Extraordinary' is worth trying. The dry down is quite delightful. The chocolate gourmand tones are subdued by the warm vanilla and musk amply assisted by the patchouli and sandalwood as the sillage remains fresh and warm but never cloying. Although intended for females, I wear it for fun. It is a surprisingly effective counterpoint fragrance for Salvatore Ferragamo pour Homme.
Probably the best female Avon I have smelled, but on me it lasted about five minutes. I think it would be very good on someone's skin that could hold it. I mostly smelled the grapefruit and chocolate.
This is one of the best chocolate perfumes available. Extraordinay is more grown-up than for example CSP's Amour De Cacao, because the gourmand notes are balanced with a classic warm floral bouquet.
