    Default Ladies, your expertise...

    I was wondering if any of you ladies knew of a frag that had heavy cinnamon(ish) notes along with some milky notes. Kind of like Premiere Figuier Extreme but substitute the fig with cinnamon. I am searching for a scent that is reminiscent to Horchata if you guys know what that is.
    Or just a scent with noticeable cinnamon in it.

    When you mentioned milk, I was reminded of Fresh Mukki (notes: gentle peach, honeydew, cucumber, violet, caramel, linden, vanilla, musk, tuberose). Personally, it sort of turned my stomach.

    I see that Scentual Pleasures has something called Cinnamon Creme Donut that received good reviews at MakeupAlley.com, but I haven't sampled it.

    I'm not to sure about an absolute milky cinnamon scent.
    However :

    Diesel Zero Plus Masculine is a very cinnamony spice foody scent. I think the base is more vanilla than milk though. (Diesel Plus Plus is based on milk notes so you could wash with the shower gel and then use the Zero Plus (M) to get the effect you want...)

    Organza Indecence (F) is another spice gourmand scent with loads of woody spice over a delicious fruity, amber vanilla base. Very feminine and totally moreish. :P *drool*

    Fendi Theorema (F) is spice over cream which may be exactly what you are looking for.

    Also LUSH have a new massage bar called 'Merry Christmas' it is a limited edition. It is strong enough to be used as a solid perfume and therefore is a BRILLIANT bargain as the bar will last for ages, used that way. It smells to me of eggnog. a creamy scent with a little dash of cinnamon and spice. My boyfriend loves it on me and I intend to stock up before it is discontinued in january.

    I hope this was of some help. Please let us know what you discover / decide. Good luck & happy hunting! ;D

    E. Coudray - Ambre & Vanille.
    (Orange, Cinnamon, Amber & Vanilla). *Nice and smooth; the orange is hardly detectable to my nose. *Their discontinued Vanille & Canelle sounds as if it would be good but it isn't very creamy at all; more soapy IMO.

    Frederick Malle - Musc Ravageur. *This is heavy in cinnamon and is very smooth and sensual.

    I have a sample of this and love it on my skin. I find that it all hot spiced chocolate on my skin. I don't find it so 'milky'. I layer it withTBS Amorito for a total gourmand fest - total chocolate! yum!
