This one goes on with a fleeting impression of sweetness that's quickly overwhelmed by massoia wood spiced with cumin. I also smell patchouli here, but only for the first ten minutes. After this, it settles into thick, buttery sandalwood, but retains that element of spice. From here it slowly dries down to a nutty base, very soft after the five hour mark, but still there eight hours in.
I expected more coconut/white chocolate/vanilla here, but I don't really detect them. As other reviewers have stated, this is not a sweet, yummy gourmand, but something more grown-up & complex. I'd prefer it to project more strongly, but I'll have to try dousing myself with it to see if that makes a difference.


Great gourmand! It's not the mouthwatering type nor the cloyingly sweet type, overboard vanilla. It has a restrained coconut with a touch of chai spices. It dries down to a familiar base of honey (or something slightly sweet and dry, but not musk to my nose). I recognize it from another one of her fragrances, maybe Orca.

Interesting: yes. Not sure if this is full bottle worthy. The verdict is still out with me. I did buy a travel size for my wife. This is the first fragrance that I've brought home that she said she would actually wear.


It's like roasted marshmallows around the campfire. Not s'mores, just the burnt marshmallow right out of the fire. The vanilla is great so you might have someone who will want to cuddle and get closer for a good sniff. Projection and longevity are good.


Like many perfume snobs, I tend to not like gourmands that much, but Coco Blanc is weird enough to keep me happy, while also being gloriously edible.

The coconut smells like that dried, shredded coconut used in baking, coated with sugar and vanilla frosting. Meanwhile, there's a woody element, made strangely sweaty and meaty with quite a bit of cumin. The result of this is one of those mixes that shouldn't work - the olfactory equivalent of mixing German chocolate cake frosting in a forest with an extremely sweaty guy holding taco meat. It should be just dreadful, but is somehow not just compelling in its weirdness, but actually kind of beautiful.


This is just plain yummy – it's like eating super rich, creamy white chocolate while you're standing in the middle of an Indian spice shop. It's warm and smoky and delicious. Full bottle worthy for sure!


Hmmm!!
I may have to invest in a tot of this!
It would sit alongside of a Bottle of O'Driu

This is the fragrance of the bodies of Myself and my Queen after a day of.
Lounging around on the beach of our private Caribbean Isle. Bathing in our Freshwater pool sans fragrance. Rubbed down with Cocoa Butter and Vanilla derived from the island's small, wild oasis.
We are laying on the beach, gazing at a slightly hazy full Moon.
