Reviews of Chocolat Amère

Tasty and captivating fragrance that transmits me a sense of nobiliar gourmandism rather than properly an obscurity or appalling darkness. Decadent. The dark-chocolate's bitterness is an additional dandy and cultured valour. Chocolat Amere starts with a blast of bitter dry fruits, cacao and spices while gradually fading in to a sort of resinous woody dry down (tasty of creams, chocolate and a bit dusty of resins). Side by side with chocolate, sandalwood is the most prominent note while frankincense is well modulated in a way preserving decadent mystery without being overly liturgical or stuffy. A good piece of work made of high quality materials but not so complex to be a real giant. It lacks real floral articulation, a right dosage of hesperides, a touch of musty dirtiness, structural patchouli and kaleidoscopic "changeability" in the olfactory wake.

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.
