Scent Description

This all-natural woodsy gourmand will please lovers of natural sandalwood. A luscious cocoa absolute melds with New Caledonia sandalwood absolute, spices, and a lactonic natural peach note. Vanilla and a subtle hint of coffee make the chocolate richer, while woodsy cedar and musky ambrette seed reinforce and complement the sandalwood. For women and men.

Perfumer's Secrets

Cocoa absolute is a decadent, thick brown liquid that is a bit like a melted dark chocolate bar. Coffee absolute smells like the darkest black coffee. I wanted to make use of these ingredients with New Caledonia sandalwood and a natural peach lactone to create a creamy natural woodsy gourmand. The cocoa and peach lactone enhance the creamy, buttery aspects of the sandalwood.

10 reviews for Cocoa Sandalwood

  1. Lucas

    The aroma is quite appetizing, like a plate of sweet slices of peach for a dessert. In the drydown one can recognize some roses, their style is vintage and their petals are dark red. Ambrette makes a soft, mellow base that makes Cocoa Sandalwood stay on my skin for almost entire day. This perfume is an effervescent gourmand that should satisfy chocomaniacs and fans of foody scents. Want a bite?

    In Cocoa Sandalwood, the sacred ingredient has been rendered human, or rather, that aspect of it, the humble and comforting has been highlighted. Its gravity morphs into a human presence, supportive and caring. While you close your eyes, your surroundings awaken. A hint of coffee from the cup you have in front of you suddenly smells sweeter. Something vaguely floral reaches you from the living room.

    You live in an ordinary corner of the world but during moments like this, a hidden place can be found even for that aforementioned temple to exist in the city of concrete. You are renewed and so is the world…

    Cocoa Sandalwood smells more cedar-y at first, with only the slightest dusting of bitter cocoa powder underneath. The sweetness, true to Laurie Erickson’s signature style, comes from rose, as well as fruity and milky natural peach lactone. Ambrette seed contributes a musky yet wine-like quality that beautifully complements the subtle rose as well as supports the luxurious aspects of sandalwood, and vetiver further contributes to the nutty quality ambrette an the woodsy theme of the perfume. The spices, though sprinkled throughout the perfume’s phases, are never really noticeable, but rather add warmth and depth to the composition.

    Best 2013: A very grown up chocolate perfume, creamy and smooth, yet not too sweet.

  5. Mark

    New Caledonian Sandalwood wraps it in spices and dusts it with arid cocoa powder. When people tell me natural perfume can’t have depth and richness I hand them my bottle of this to end that conversation.
