Cocoa-centric perfumes?

...I keep getting an error message when I attempt to checkout on PK Perfumes website, it doesn't actually say, but I think they mustn't ship to the UK which is very disappointing, I was going to purchase their "discovery pack" as loads of their perfumes sound amazing! I've written to them to find out because my interest is seriously piqued now. :DEDIT: The lovely Paul Kiler wrote back to me super quickly! So I have now placed an order for his discovery pack and was so tempted to buy loads more, but I have resisted until I know which ones I want first. One of the samples is, of course, "Violet Chocolatier". His "Gold Leather" and "Red Leather" sound amazing as well as "Dirty Rose". I'm really excited to receive them now! :lol:

Cocoa-centric perfumes?

...Hayven:PK perfumes has one called violet chocolatier. The cocoa note is very dry, but you have to like violets of course. The perfume is not as sweet as the notes sound.Violets are beautiful as long as they're not too sweet, so this sounds like it might be right up my street. Thank you! :D

Cocoa-centric perfumes?

...Dulcemio:How about "Chocolat Amere"? I sampled it years ago and remember liking it.I need to sample Borneo too.Have you ever tried "Neonatura Cocon"? I don't recall it being very sweet."Neonatura Cocon" is one that I looked at but it seems impossible to find anywhere to buy it! It's not available from Yves Rocher any more and I can't find it for sale on eBay or Amazon :( However, joy of joys, "Chocolat Amere" is readily available as a sample from Lucky Scent or in various sizes from the Il Profvmo website, so I shall be getting a sample first with my next Lucky Scent order. Thank you for this suggestion. It does seem as if it might be a bit of a "love or hate" sort of fragrance so I am not tempted to blind buy! :lol:

Cocoa-centric perfumes?

...Triffid:The one that comes to mind (I've not tried it) is "Borneo 1834" by Serge Lutens. It apparently has an obvious, not sweet, cocoa note but the catch is that it's heavy on the patchouli. The reviews may help you decide if it's worth sampling.Oooh thanks for the suggestion! I shall definitely get hold of a sample, that sounds very interesting indeed. :D

Good-smelling cheapies are hard to find

...Of course, I forgot to mention Al-Rehab! Their attars are so cheap and last an amazingly long time. The ones I've tried have been long lasting with excellent sillage. My most recent purchase is "Aseel" which is amazingly similar to "Red Aoud" by Montale, and it was only £2.75 including postage (approx €3.34 or US$4.62) for a 6ml roll on concentrated perfume oil which will last me forever!

Canvas & Concrete

...It seems like it's more of a barrier spray then.

Anyone know the Décant Shop?

...I've not heard of them but it looks suspect to me. There is no phone number or street address listed on the site for them (that I can find). The only way to contact them with a query is via a web form. Personally, I would be very wary. :?

Cocoa-centric perfumes?

...Thanks, yes, I've been going through the suggestions. Unfortunately, it seems that perfumers are obsessed with making the note sweet which defeats the object lol! Never mind, I shall keep looking. Thanks :D

Cocoa-centric perfumes?

...I am wondering if there is a perfume that is based around the smell of cocoa. I don't mean hot chocolate, or sweetened cocoa, I mean that bitter fragrance that pure cocoa powder gives off. It's been something that I've been looking for for a few days now, but all of the perfumes that I look at seem to have more of a "chocolate" note or a sweet "cacao" note. I don't want to smell like a box of chocolates (as much as I love the smell!) I want something a bit more complex that uses the bitterness of cocoa. I have NO idea if such a perfume exists, but I would love to have any suggestions that you wonderful "Parfumo-istas" may have for me! :D
