From the brand - "Escape from the habits of everyday life for a gourmand escapade. A journey through vanilla, black sugar, tonka bean and musk that intertwine, making its trail powerful and comforting. A most gourmand fragrance that is reminiscent of the crème brulée of our childhood. Appetizing, seductive and enveloping for an infinitely intoxicating hold."
Fragrantica - "Obsessed is an understatement. This is the perfect crème brûlée type of vanilla, Very thick, but not too much. It has this warmth to it that I can’t even describe in words.
Just reminds me of something I’d wear while going shopping in the winter all bundled up drinking a warm drink, and browsing through high end stores"
Fragrantica - "Rich, deep, dark vanilla, sugar and cookies. Definitely a gourmand fragrance that evokes the image of vanilla sugar cookies baking in the oven."
Fragrantica - "Yes, it is sweet but it is not tooth-achingly sweet, nor is it too gooey or thick. To me, it is a luxurious and realistic take on crème brûlée. The scent trail it leaves stays true to that impression (I know this because I got compliments regarding it). Despite being gourmand, it is quite airy and projects well. Despite being airy, it is long lasting (I smelled it on my skin 10+ hours later and on clothing days later)."
Fragrantica - "10/10 for a sultry, not too sweet vanilla/tonka fragrance. The sugar cane opening is delicious too. Very well done and the ingredients are quality. The substantial amount of tonka provides an almondy and very slight smoky quality which I love."
