    Default Articles about Chocolate Perfumes and other Chocolatey Goodies

    Chocolate Zoom magazine (A NYC based chocolate guide!) published a Spa Special, with a few chocolate-scented articles that may interest the Chocoholic Basenoters - about chocolate perfumes, chocolate environmental scents, and chocolate body products. Here are the links to the articles online:

    Chocolate for Your Room:

    The Scent of a Chocolate (I was interviewed for this article and they also mentioned a couple of my perfumes):

    Hi, Ayala!
    You can edit the subject line yourself by clicking "edit" and then, from the edit window, click on "go advanced," and you'll get a more expansive edit window that includes the subject line.

    I love to eat chocolate, but for some reason I'm not very keen on chocolate as a perfume note. As a fan of that other talented Canadian, Rufus Wainwright, I've often wondered how well it mixes with tobacco...

    apologies to Ayala if it's slightly off-topic, but I just had to share :-)

    Thank you so much for the links Ayala!
    I am also a chocoholic and i love everything about it.
    There are many nice choco-inspired scents out there and i always thought that avon's extraordinay was one of the nicest chocogourmands until elixirDM came out, but edm is more of a dry-ambery-bloodoranges-and chocolate than the creamy-gooey-spicy chocolate that the avon scent.
    Also, is there any choco in avon's own Tomorrow? On my skin it has some chocolate-y quality to it, but more of a 55% light milk chocolate combined with white choco and raspberry than a darker chocolate. (i find that it also has a beachy-vacations quality to it)
    Have you tried the lux-chocolate soap? its getting huge buzz everywhere...

    i believe it's also available in india and other countries

    I don't understand that Chocolovers scent. It smells rummy to me, rum and cherry cordial and like a synthetic tiramisu. Plus, it's gooey. The Comptoir scent is dry, as is the chocolate note in Angel, although this latter appearance is brief and quickly overwhelmed by the Angel cacophony. I think I like it dry or Venezuelan or whatever is 70% cacao.

    I say this as I chomp on some plain old Hershey's milk.

    My son and I came up with a really nice solid perfume based on orange, cocoa, and frankincense, among other things, so now I really like chocolate notes! And I thought I didn't like the gourmand category...thanks for the links, Ayala!!
