Jeffrey Dame offered a free 5 ml sample of his newest release, Chocolate Man, during the 4th of July. Thankfully my friend Valerie tagged me in his post and I caught it in time. Dame Perfumery offers many beautiful fragrances that I adore, including the full bottle of Lime, Gardenia & Benzoin that I wear regularly. In his usual generous way he sent many other samples as well.
Chocolate Man is utterly decadent. Powdery dark chocolate resonating with coffee bean depth and a drop of booze morph into dusky woods and crunchy cocoa nibs. As intoxicating as staring into deep brown eyes that always seem to hold a bit more of the soul in them than any other color, a swirling chocolate liqueur surrounding the inky dark patchouli pupil. I will easily wear the rest of this with glee in the coming fall and winter. A scent for closeness.
I have reviewed the other samples that were included with this order but these two are new to me:
Soliflore Mimosa- Apricot and peach, fuzz and flesh, honeysuckle headiness tempered by green leaves. The soft spray of tufted yellow mimosa blooms. Dreamy.
Verbena, Freesia & Musk- This was one of his eau de toilette for women scents that I had been eyeing. The verbena and freesia merge into the skin with elegance and a classic feel. This is one I will wear easily at work; green, fresh, powdery musk and purple stalks of freesia that almost remind me of paperwhites and hyacinths. Spring on the skin.
If you have not had a chance to try Dame Perfumery, you should sample some of Jeffrey's fragrances. I particularly love Herb man, Dark Horse, Black Flower Mexican Vanilla and of course Lime, Gardenia & Benzoin. He has an excellent sampling offering of his scents in 5 ml sprays for $8.50 to $10.00 each and free shipping. I want to sample Cassis, Rose & Sandalwood, Peach Blossom, Violet & Vanilla and his New Musk Man. Which of his offerings would you want to try?
