CHOCOLATE TRUFFLE: This Bergamot Truffle
Eau de Cologne by Payard is citrus with a twist. This seemingly fresh creation hides within its heart a deliciously dark secret, a rich, non-sweet, elegantly bitter note of the finest and the darkest chocolate. While the star ingredient, bergamot, which is often bracing and tart, is softened and lightly sweetened by the presence of honeyed orange blossom, the strikingly intense, almost earthy chocolate note is made creamier with a soupçon of vanilla. The effect is unexpectedly complex. As in a chocolate tasting ritual, allow the notes of` the perfume gradually evolve, unfold and surprise you. A unique creation to be enjoyed by men and women alike. The notes include dark chocolate, Calabrian bergamot, orange flower and Tahitian vanilla ($48 at LuckyScent; $3 for a sample)
