Nothing is quite as enticing as the scent of chocolate. One whiff and you remember special chocolate goodies you used to savor as a child, or you start to crave a piece of chocolate cake. Instead of diving into a dream-filled pool of chocolate, try smelling like the delicious treat.
A trend among celebrities is designing perfumes and colognes. Chocolate is one scent found in many of the perfumes, including Mariah Carey's Mine Again and Shakira's S.
Two of the more popular celebrity chocolate fragrances are Britney Spears' Fantasy, which veers away from the traditional chocolate scent and goes for the creamier white chocolate mixed with kiwi and jasmine. Sarah Jessica Parker's Covet is chocolate mixed with lemon and lavender. Jessica Simpson's Dreamy mixes chocolate and coconut together.
You can smell like your favorite candy bar or your significant others' favorite chocolate treat. The Demeter company makes a line of perfumes designed to specifically smell like popular candy bars, such as Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, Hershey's Special Dark Chocolate and Kisses, Tootsie Rolls and Junior Mints. You can also smell like chocolate covered cherries.
Instead of smelling like a candy bar, you can remind someone of walking into a house with the fresh smell of a chocolate dessert baking in the oven. Demeter has scents that can make you smell like chocolate chip cookies, brownies or a devil's food cake.
Solstice Scents produces a fragrance that makes you smell like a German chocolate cake, complete with the coconut and pecan frosting.
A number of perfumes, both cheap and expensive, are available with a chocolate scent. The New York City restaurant, Serendipity 3, produces Serendipitous, which combines cocoa with vanilla and orange.
Chocolate Greedy by Montale uses a strong chocolate scent mixed with vanilla and orange. Pistachio Ganache by Payard combines chocolate with pistachios.
Chocolate scented perfume does not have to be just for women. Il Profumo created a chocolate scented cologne for men called Chocolat Amere. The scent is based on bitter chocolate so it doesn't smell too sweet and it is mixed with sandalwood and nutmeg.
