History lesson: the Nahuatl word "xocolatl", from which we probably get the word "chocolate", has nothing to do with chocolate at all and translates to "corn drink". How about that? This scent, however, IS chocolate, and lots of it. Dark and spiced, in the Aztec tradition, but topped with froofy European-style modifications like vanilla and cream.

Might be my favorite of all. So, so, so delicious! I'm not even usually that crazy about chocolate, but this captures all the most alluring parts of a perfect hot cocoa. And then it lasts all day long and then some, neither overpowering nor fading out, but melding beautifully with my skin. Perfection.

I'm starting the investigation of my Squee party here....
And oh yum, am I so glad that I did.
I SMELL DELICIOUS.
The scent was nearly too much in the bottle, but once it's on? LOOK OUT. You may feel the need to gnaw on your wrist.
I put this on at 6:30 AM and now, at 10, it's mellowed into a the most mouthwatering aroma of chocolate iced doughnuts. Who knew?

I posted a review here a year ago on a small squee of the Xocolatl, and I fell in love with it so much, I had to buy more!!! I purchased a 5 ml bottle at the end of the year, and I have to say, I got another WHOLE new appreciation for this scent.
It is one of the most interesting scents I've had, and I cannot stop loving it. There will be days in which the rich, sweet scent of creamy chocolate will stick out the most...and then other days, I'll be smelling like a cinnamon bun all throughout the day!!! Either way, I smell DELICIOUS, and cannot get enough of it! Next time I order, I WILL be buying more!

This is the scent I was most looking forward to when I bought some squees almost a year ago. Even today, it smells just as delightful as when I first popped that little bottle open. Being the chocolate addict that I am, the first thing that my nose caught was the sweet, rich, dark chocolate scent, and I fell in love. The hints of the vanilla cream and cinnamon make it similar to a hot cocoa experience. Hot cocoa experiences are fabulous, at that.
Trust me, when I put this on, I have people asking what it is all the time. I plan on buying a bigger bottle of this sometime soon.

This scent delivers exactly what the description promises! Picture the most decadent, high-end chocolate ganache you've ever tasted, with the deep richness and cacao bitterness smoothed slightly with cream, sweetened with vanilla and rounded out with a touch of spice. None of the supporting cast of notes dares to upstage the dominance of the chocolate, which is as it should be. Mmmm....
