    A nice organic opening of natural, earthy, straightforward salty patchouli on sandy, soothing cocoa powder – which practically smells like an accord of patchouli and vanilla. Pungent green notes floating around. Ambroxan base, which feels a bit synthetic (let's be generous and stay poetic: “medicinal”, with a balsamic feel), then dries down becoming more bitter – still sweetened and rounded by the cocoa note. If I had to imagine this visually it would be an abandoned wooden antique closet buried at the feet of a cocoa tree, somewhere in the deep forest of one of those tiny wooded islands in the middle of the ocean. The projection is quite light and close - overall a bit "restrained" and pulled-back. Otherwise it's good.

    7,5/10

    You might be mislead by the fact it is mostly made of patchouli, for although it is notably a predominant note, the cacao and the ambergris are combined in such a fashion the blend feels distinctive.

    It develops quite fast, the opening signed by the patchouli is disguised in a way it smells somehow formal, thus usual connotations given by it are set aside. I can get a powdery feeling in these top notes acquiring a gourmand effect, obviously due to the presence of cacao. One may think of a powdery black chocolate scent that slowly turns sugary, finally turning somehow cozy. In other words, the olfative journey proposed by Caoba is somehow a lingering game between opposites, bitter and sweetness in this case.

    Undoubtedly, one of my preferred scents among those made by Fueguia. In the case of men wearing it, be aware Caoba's strength and silage are notorious. As to women, I have no doubt it can be worn as a very sexy oriental that will draw many compliments.
