The opening combines a very restrained tonka with a citrus-pomegranate duo that has whiffs of a nigh rhubarb-like undertone. All this is freshened up by a minty chocolate layer, and the result is pleasant and not without a touch of originality.

In the drydown a smoky impression of a fairly harsh and smoky Oolong tea merges with an amber note, and now the chocolate turns bitter in a delicious way. Over the course of the development of this composition the bitter chocolate and the smoky amber play it out against each other, and towards the base phase it takes on a faecaloid-pungent-mossy undertone that is, however, never intrusive or overwhelming. This harsh notes gradually looses its chocolate component towards the end, and at that stage it is somewhat less special and less original.

The sillage is moderate, the projection excellent and the longevity - unbelievable: seventeen hours on my skin - sensational!

A well-made winter scent that is creative, not too synthetic in character and displays monster longevity. 3.25/5.

When I grab something in a hurry my impulse is Mikado. The truth is I love it. Chocolate dressed in Mme. Gres. The leafy herbs suck all the sweet out of notes that might otherwise be juvenile. Audrey Hepburn's chocolate.

Fleurs de Chocolat Mikado begins fresh — I guess the mint makes it so, but the mint and vanilla are so temporary … I have to say that at least the mint and vanilla last long enough to show a cursory respect to the company’s name. The chocolate moves in on the fresh bergamot, vanilla, and mint immediately, and it isn’t long before the chocolate is dominant. And what a chocolate this is! This is the chocolate of my dreams — dark chocolate, deliciously bitter chocolate, not the waxy, wimpy, sweet, milk chocolate. Instead of being cloying, the chocolate in Mikado is absolutely tempting, utterly luscious. I don’t get any tea, but tea never did go with chocolate, anyway. Assisted a bit by the pomegranate and amber, the chocolate still is in almost complete charge of the accord … Chocolate in its primal glory.

And that’s pretty much it … it lasts and lasts, giving a linear identity and an acceptable longevity to this fabulous chocolate note. Just as I always choose the rich dark chocolate over the milk chocolate variety in my deserts, I would choose this one over the over other chocolate fragrances I’ve encountered, if I were a person who enjoys smelling like chocolate, which I could very well become because of this scent.
