Sweet tooth: Chocolate .
When I smelled the first scent that had discernible chocolate in it I was horrified. It was, of course Angel and it was, of course usually worn by people who loved it to abandon and wore a lot if it. I loathed it. Then one day I smelled it on someone who wore just a touch and it was lovely. Really lovely. It wasn't something that I would wear but I could appreciate it.
But I still told myself that I didn't like chocolate in scent.
Then I found Borneo 1834. Like Angel, it featured chocolate and patchouli, but Borneo's was dry and vaguely dusty, like something that had been found in a desert tomb and I loved it.
Since then there are been others, like Bud perfumes Ugly Bastard, Parfumerie Generales Musc Maori and Uncle Serge's own Vetiver Oriental. I don't own all of them by any stretch of the imagination, since my urge to wear that note is easily taken up by Borneo, but I do love smelling them and if any showed up on a birthday I'd be thrilled..
