    Lovely things to choose between. I'd only say wear very little of whatever it is so that you can taste your food. Have a great time!

    That was what I was thinking as well. I've even field-tested it for this very situation!

    New Haarlem on you and then get her to wear Back to Black. Best of both worlds..

    I dont know about everyone else but im put off by gourmands when going to dinner. Something about the sweet notes intermingling with food aromas. Makes me feel sticky.

    Rather than worrying about a fragrance, maybe just focus on wearing warm clothes if your eating dinner in the cold night. I would suggest layering rather that just a big heavy coat, that way you can take off some layers if you get too warm......

    The scent of her skin.

    I would try something like Ambre Gris by Balmain. This is very warm and ambery.

    From your list, I would use Back to Black.

    BtB, but apply at least 2 hours before you will be eating so it settles down and doesn't interfere with the dining experience... I find it a little loud at first.
