    CiocoRosissimo is a good one but I favor CiocoSpesizissimo, tomato vines and chocolate. Who woulda thunk that would smell so good!

    Oh yes. Cannabis Santal is another good one, and one I would easily pick before A*Men.

    Dude you won't be sorry, L'instant extreme is incredible. Even the EDT is an exceptional cologne it's just less gourmand and has more citrus in the top notes. The drydown are very similar on both....

    Something with notes of Cocoa, chocolate, coffee, butterscotch, vanilla, rum, dark berries, etc, with something more exotic, and a base to ground it along the lines of leather, wood, patchouli, tobacco, etc
    I have a suggestion. Read Off Scenter's review of Santal Noble

    +1 on Animale Animale. Chocolate, vanilla, and mossy, very masculine, very extraordinary, very inexpensive, and very underrated.

    Christopher Sheldrake did two chocolate/patchouli scents, the above-mentioned Borneo 1834 for Serge Lutens, and Coromandel for Chanel. They're very similar, but Coromandel is more Chanel-plush (but not as much as the other Les Exclusifs). It's going to be one of those which will soon be offered in the 75 ml size.

    The chocolate greedy is real good. Best chocolate scent out there in my opinion in the niche line.
