Down To Earth

No no no, my nose is not deceiving me. I am not wearing Thierry Mugler Angel, I am wearing  Laurence Dumont Les Senteurs Gourmandes VANILLE CHOCOLAT,  and I really do like it a lot. It's a cheap thrill - it's a little more than twenty bucks for 100 ml - and if you think Angel is a bit too loud and bombastic for you, then this is a good alternative. The chocolate note is front and center, but it is not overly sweet - there's a coco vibe that is kind of earthy and dirty. As a matter of fact, the vanilla is almost non-existent for me, because it is pretty linear and it goes straight to that patchouli chocolate right away. It's not the most original thing in the world, but I think it's better than those too-common fruity floral pink pepper concoctions that are a dime a dozen nowadays. And during the wintertime, it's comforting enough to envelope you. I am a lot less of a gourmand fan nowadays when it comes to perfume, but I will wear this one easily. 


  1. Where'd you buy it? The price is nice...I think I want to get it...

  2. Parfum1 has the full line, cheap.
