parfums*PARFUMS Series 7 Sweet: Spicy Cocoa by Comme des Garçons

I know the range is headed sweet but in spite of all the alleged spiciness it's just sickly. I don't get poo just a really nauseating chocolate orange smell. Usually I like bergamot but that's the only 'orangey' note here & it just smelled like I felt eating too much chocolate orange in one go at Christmas years ago as a kid. I really didn't want to be reminded of that!

Rahät Loukoum by Serge Lutens

Although I do foody / gourmand I do have a problem tolerating some overtly sweet ones (e.g. CDG Spicy cocoa which I found truly sickening). This is truly subtle in spite of a list of ingredients which could just end up smelling a mess, it is beautifully balanced. I got a load of SL samples off ebay & love a lot of them but it's this & Daim Blond that had me wanting bigger bottles. It's comforting & stimulating & moreish & won't make you plump like the harem women!
