Is it just me...???
I am not that impressed by this to be honest, and not really by the other two 10 ml bottles I bought(onyx and raw cherry), but they were better than this one.
I found Forbidden to have a nice orange/citruses and chocolate opening. But soon after it just turns sickly sweet and kind of plain and boring on me.
It lacks that sensual depth.

Am I alone in these feelings?
Is this perfumer overhyped? I at last kind of think so...

Well done
..however, the similarity to the Jaffa Softcakes is too strong
I find there are finer and also high-quality Gourmands such as Ambre Narguile.
The base is due to oud, amber and vanilla of course fantastic and even the next day still very strong to smell.
Compliments you also get for this Aaron Terence Hughes fragrance without end.
You should try this one already if you are interested in the direction and you want to smell the great raw materials.

Willy Wonka at the Playboy Mansion
This fairytale fragrance is Sexy & Mysterious. It's a playboy with a fun chocolate twist. It has a strong dark vibe that lures you in. It's like if Willy Wonka went to the playboy mansion, and had tipsy women sitting on his lap and hugging him after midnight. It is 60% oriental & 40% darker gourmand. I smelled my hand over 200 times, I couldn't stop!

Super Gourmand
I do like Aaron’s fragrances. Forget about your opinions of the man himself. This is for fragrance reviews not perfumers personalities. Forbidden is a very nice smooth gourmand. Lovely for a winters evening out. It’s getting warmer here in the UK but still managed to wear it out a couple of times. Out of the 25 ATH perfumes I have, there are only 2 gourmands Luna and Forbidden. Both are very nice. Forbidden like most of ATH fragrances lasts and projects. It’s a good price too due to the high quality ingredients. I find that ATH is maturing with his fragrances and learning from the mistakes of the past.

Honestly unbelievable. Compliments galore. It is very much Jaffa cakes with a slight cherry rum booziness. Bloody unreal. Love love love.

Initially boozy and citric-spicy sweet, a rather gentle oriental spicy-fruity Gourmand, balanced by a warm musky-woody base. 100% Unisex!

Opens w/a nice bright and sweet orange, but I was expecting it to turn darker. This doesn't change much and is very, very sweet (27 M)
