Here I thought the fragrance would be
rich mix of incense, woods and chocolate.
"Chocolat Amere is swoonworthy when worn by a man"
is what LUCKYSCENT advertised!
and I had really hoped for
this what I get ...
Fruity top notes..
with strong cacao that suddenly fades
into a powdery vanilla
thats not real long lasting...
not at all the ...
"The spices add alluring piquancy to the dark chocolate creaminess of the heart, and the base accord is an olfactory treat, a deep, satisfyingly rich mix of incense, woods and chocolate."
Chocolate, florals, a touch of spice, followed up by a woody drydown: I’ve been here before several times. The chocolate is well done, and the fragrance is put together very nicely, but I don’t find this particular chocolate fragrance very special. It is linear on my skin, and it has everything that the many other chocolate fragrances I’ve tested have… Rich chocolate, florals, spice, wood… but it’s missing a special point of interest, a unique take… The raw materials in Chocolat Amère are excellent: The balance, movement, sillage, and longevity are done very well. It wears well, too. But it really needs to be more than competent.
Chocolat Amere is a deep, dark, semi sweet chocolate that really grabs one's attention. Resinous woods add complexity and stop this from being too foody. This has a good longevity, 5-6 hrs, and a decent sillage. A very nicely done fragrance, but one that I couldn't see myself reaching for very often. This is definitely for after-dark use.
