    Re: Cuckoo for Cocoa

    Raw cocoa is not particularly sweet, not until the make chocolate out of it and add a ton of sugar... ;)

    Cocoa is in fact rather bold and bitter. That's why I like it in a scent.

    Re: L'instant pour homme

    I just bought me a big bottle of this (125ml) at a great price, €27,50!

    Anyway, it's such a wonderful scent, suitable for most types of weather except maybe when it's real hot and humid.

    Re: Do You LIKE Oud?

    Yes, love it. But not in perfume - which is mostly synthetic oud anyway - I prefer the pure oil.
