I do not think of brownies when I wear this great scent as there is a lot more going on within its composition than cocoa although it is the dominant note running through it. The opening has warm citrus followed by the cocoa note then the floral/jasmine note kicks in behind the cocoa. After a long while I can detect some woods and the cocoa is powdery like opening a tin of cocoa but it's never alone there are other notes with it.
The basenotes I get a vanille cocoa muskyness and it is a delight to the nose and the fragrance lasts for twelve hours on my skin. I think its a fantastic scent and rate it highly.
