  • ITI:  It’s oddly chocolate-y with something that reminds me of faint neroli.
  • Wet: I still get cocoa or chocolate, but there’s something sweet in her too aside from the slight citrus, like sugar  or vanilla.  This is confusing me.  It should be floral!
  • Dry: After it’s dried, the chocolate settles down some as does the sugar aspect; however, I can detect just a smidgen of floral now. 

Other Impressions: “What are you wearing?  It smells like chocolate.” -Tony
