    The best dry (oud), slightly sweet, chocolate, and Rose scent I've come across is:

    Arabian Oud's Mukhallat Al Diwan.
    Arabian Oud's Mukhallat Al Sheyokh is similar but leaning more towards Rose
    Arabian Oud's Mukhallat Al Qaser is similar but leaning more towards dry wood.
    Currently wearing: Royal Mayfair by Creed

    2. Straight to Heaven
    3. Epic Man

    5. Tonka Imperial
    6. Pure Malt
    7. Jubilation XXV

    I must confess I'm slightly afraid of oud's. But I might not know what I'm talking about. I sampled Creed's Royal Oud and almost died. However I shall look into these. You caught my interest, since I've never even heard of these. TY

    Roger that. Thank you. I was wondering if NdN is so much better than Noir to deserve the price difference. I guess it must be.

    Well, I haven't tried many but I really liked Tom Ford 'Cafe Rose'. Its not as complex as Noir de Noir but I found it had a 'coolness' that NdN didn't and it isn't overly sweet. If you know the smell of chocolate rose creams then this is exactly it!

    Cafe Rose is average at best IMO. Save your money.

    Just stay away from Mukhallat Al Qaser...it's too much Oud for me. I don't like Oud, albeit very dry, cool Cambodian Ouds. And Arabian Oud's other 2 mukhallats were very nice and totally accessible to western pallettes. Just a hint of Oud in each.

    Noir de Noir is wonderful for a rose and chocolate scent.

    NdN is much richer than Noir. And as others have said, it is also richer than Cafe rose.

    As for 100% Love, I've heard of it too. Is it still around? has it been renamed/reissued somewhere?

    Thanks! Somehow, I never happen in stores who sell the brand, I'll have to find a way to try.

    I think S-Perfume's 100% Love is the rename and used to be A Lab On Fire's Rose Rebelle.

    Oh and +1 but make sure you test it first. It is perhaps not what you'd expect. I do love it though.

    Rose and chocolate? Sound just like the fragrance that Redolessence reviewed not too long ago. It's called Untitled #2 by Magnetic Scent

    Rose, cinnamon, vanilla and chocolate is the notes you'll going to get. He gave it a 10/10 for projection and longevity, so you don't need to worry about that!

    Order a sample if your interested: http://www.magnetic-scent.com/product-category/samples/

    Versace Black Jeans - slightly, but not overly gourmand, dark rose opening, also dry in spite of a moderate sweetness, leathery-spicy drydown, also further floral and gourmand notes (somewhat like fudge, somewhat like marzipan, yet again not overly sweet).

    THIS! Plus, it's cheap online and it works wonders as a compliment catcher. The only negative is that it might be too sweet for you...? If it isn't too sweet, snap this one up because it's one heck of a bargain.

    Santal Majuscule might qualify, although the chocolate/cocoa is pretty subtle and to me it is more of a rose and sandalwood scent with some subtler gourmand notes.
