    Mugler A*Men will get you caramel
    Guerlain L'Instant will get you Cocoa
    I have a feeling Comptor Sud Pacific will probably have something chocolatey

    ... I'm curious to see what else comes up here though.

    Chocolovers by Aquolina, if you are looking for a budget option. Haven't tested it, but Aquolina scents tend to do exactly what they say on the label (Blue Sugar, for instance); from what I've read, it is a pretty straight up chocolate blast.

    Also, +1 on Amen. It's wonderful chocolate, mint, caramel and a bit of tar. One of my favorites for winter.

    The commercials for Axe's Dark Temptation actually popped up into my head as I was clicking in here.

    Try these:
    Parfumerie Generale Musc Maori = Milk Chocolate
    Montale Red Aoud = Chillied Chocolate
    Montale Chocolate Greedy = Chocolate Wafer
    Guerlain Cuir Beluga = White Chocolate
    Serge Lutens Borneo 1834 = Dusty Cocoa and Insect Repellent (which is awesome)
    Rochas Man = Mocha and lavender
    Bond No. 9 New Haarlem = Like Rochas Man, but sweeter and more coffee.
    Tom Ford Noir de Noir = Chocolate rose w/ truffles

    +1 on Chocolovers

    The initial blast of orange mixed with chocolate is pretty awful and reminds me of the pepperidge farm cookies (http://www.grosshaendlermart.com/ima...no-500x500.jpg) but once the orange bit has gone it is pretty nice.

    Blue sugar is kind of sickening. It is like super-concentrated cotton candy or something. It does indeed fit its name, but I don't think it is good.

    Some liken Amen to a pastry/bakery with brownies and caramel cookie notes so that may be an option.

    or:

    Chocolate Orangette- signature - Double dark chocolate, sweet mandarin oranges, and a hint of vanilla.

    When people ask about a frag that smells like chocolate, I wonder how much they want it, or whether it is a particular kind of frag (such as one with strong lavender and sweetness) that they just don't understand and so can't ask for specifically.

    You may also want to check out Jojelle, as they do a lot of sweet/food scents. Here is a link to their bakery and sweet subcategory: http://www.jojoelle.com/index.php?ma...d=27&chapter=0

    +1 on the Demeter fragrances; those tend to be more "accurate" representations of scents rather than having notes blended together to give the impression of chocolate. Are you looking for a normal cologne that has chocolate notes in it, or something that duplicates the scent of an actual piece of chocolate or chocolate dessert?

    At this page at CB I Hate Perfume are 3 chocolate accords. I haven't tried these but the things I have tried have always been incredible. Chris Brosius started at Demeter and is responsible for many of their frags.

    These three get my vote.

    As Biglsy mentioned, never really sure how much people who ask questions like this literally think there is a chocolate scent. These three have cocoa/chocolate notes to them, and just plain good scents all around.

    If you literally want to smell like walking chocolate boy in the Axe commercial, then the Demeter is the way to go.

    +1. Sounds like you want more accessible chocolate fragrances. A*Men is easily accessible by most department stores. If you shop around at fragrances shops, like Perfumania, they tend to have Givenchy's Very Irresistible, Animale Animale, and Lacoste Elegance.... more of a sickening chocolate IMO.

    Ayala Moriel - Film Noir

    It doesn't have top or heart notes, just a base of chocolate/cocoa. It gets some good reviews in the Basenotes Fragrance Directory.

    Notes: Benzoin Siamese, Cocoa Absolute, Myrrh Patchouli

    From the Ayala Moriel website:

    This perfume is as dark as a Film Noir plot; as dark as a dim-lit alley in Chinatown and musty as the sewer in The Third Man where the ambivalent heroes and heroines find their inevitable death, over and over again. Film Noir is as dark as the soul of the genre's script writers, directors, actors and viewers. In fact, it is so dark that it includes only the darkest base notes: cruelly luscious dark cacao absolute, musty-sweet patchouli and the mysterious bitterness of myrrh.
