Cocoa / Cacao
Cocoa absolute, Aqua Oleum: Absolutely foul! Dense, burnt and unpleasantly sharp. Very skanky! Can hardly relate to its disgusting smell.
Cocao absolute, Eden Botanicals: Rather wonderful and the best yet encountered. Dense, rich and slightly sweet, with a mild (but non-imposing) skankiness. It's like smelling a tin or jar of Cadbury's Drinking Chocolate. However, after about an hour, it's virtually undetectable on the skin.

Smelled this in my African travels. Absolutely horrid.
