Love it!!
There is definitely notes of cocoa/chocolate and its a very different smell than I have ever tried but oddly enough I love it! I received multiple compliments on it at work. It is definitely a fall/winter scent, woodsy and I mean it really does kind of smell like cocoa lol but in a good different kind of way. It lasted most of the day and went well with my body chemistry. I will be trying more Nest fragrances soon!

It smelled pretty good but it took a little time for me to get used to. Not really my type of scent.

Winter LOVE!!!!
If you are a fan of: REPLICA's "By the Fireplace", ELIZABETH & JAMES "Bourbon", THIERRY MUGLER "Angel Muse" or like woody fragrances, you will enjoy this. I finished my sample and just have to get the full bottle because this is the best "grown-up chocolate" perfume I have ever tried! This is drinking dark hot chocolate in a lumber shop or right next to a fireplace before the wood is lit. On my skin this is just delicious and sexy and lasts all day without being overpowering. I do not want winter to be over so I could keep wearing this!

A very dark, woody scent
Woody scents always smell pretty great on me so that is mainly the reason why I chose this one. At first you can really smell the chocolate but it's not sweet or overpowering. It's more like a dark chocolate if I had to describe it. Once it dries, it has a very warm, woody scent. I really do love this perfume and I am glad that I picked it.

Strong Chocolate Small at First, Calms Down Quickly
At first I thought I was really going to hate this because when you first spray it on it is VERY chocolate-y and I'm not a fan of chocolate scented things. However, not long after first applying it the chocolate smell cooled down and I ended up really enjoying it and finding it worked really well with my body chemistry

Perfect cold weather scent!
I love the warmth of this scent! It reminds me of hot cocoa after playing in the snow. Super fun scent.

Complex
This scent goes on VERY chocolatey and dries down to a warmer, more woody/spicy/slightly floral scent. It has great lasting power and smells amazing throughout the day.

Love
Smells like spiced, woodsy (slightly bitter) dark chocolate when first sprayed, but the chocolate wears off within a few minutes and it is just warm, spiced woods. Very cozy and comforting, without being sugary sweet. Slightly masculine so don't expect to smell like a sugary mug of hot cocoa. You'll love it if you tend to like unisex fragrances, which I do.

Initially turned off
I love this scent once it dries down but when first sprayed it's very harsh and I can't pinpoint a distinct note. It's kind of a cozy and mature scent and I like that it lingers on my skin. It's love hate every time I spray it. I might buy the travel size but probably not the full size.

It's Different - I like it
I actually really like this scent once I let it absorb into my skin. It's floral, chocolatey, musky and warm. I can definitely wear this during the day to work and make it work for a night out. I'm not obsessed with this scent, but it's in my rotation.

Unusual winter scent
I didn't care for this the first time I wore it. The notes were harsh and discordant and I didn't get any cocoa or depth, just a sour-sharp opening I thought was bergamot (must be the sequoia and ginger) and syrupy tiare. It was a complete turn-off. So I set it aside to give away. However, I kept thinking about it and finally decided to spritz it on before bed one night about a month later, and that time I loved it. I think the difference was weather and temperature. This is absolutely a cold-weather scent on my finicky skin, which has a tendency to turn musky and woody fragrances animalic and nauseating in hot weather. The harsh woodsy opening notes smooth out, and the tiare flower loses some of its sickly sweetness. I also get an earthy note that must be the cocoa, even though I can't identify it as such. After 2-3 hours I'm left with a light fragrance that evokes the pleasant memory of walking over a carpet of dry pine needles in the woods on a crisp late-fall day. I will say this is not a fragrance with great depth, sillage, or lasting power. It needs to be reapplied every 4 hours at least. And try as I might, I still can't grasp the cocoa note in this one. Imagine a woman wearing Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Eau Fraiche hugging a man wearing a one-dimensional woodsy cologne. The resulting combination that lingers on each wearer's skin for the next half or or so would be Cocoa Woods. The notes are still rather discordant, but somehow on a dry cold day it works. Overall not one I'd purchase in full size, but I can see myself revisiting the sample on a dry winter day.

Chocolate all I could smell.
I found the scent to be a bit too chocolate-y for my taste. The dry down took away some of the chocolate, but still not my favorite.

This scent is so captivating! Warm and rich. The only reason I didn’t give it five stars—it fades quickly. I wish this lovely scent lasted longer.

i love this one
I definitely tend to like rich, dark notes in my perfumes. This Nest one doesn't disappoint. It smells exactly how you probably think it does - woody undertone with a sweet, chocolate aroma. It's more on the masculine side so if you're looking for something feminine, i wouldn't get this. However, if you want a mysterious scent that leaves an impression, this is it.

Sophisticated night out scent
Definitely smells exactly what you’d think it smells like. Very woodsy and a little on the masculine side. I tend to always enjoy darker scents but I wish this one had a little more sweetness to it. Definitely still enjoy it and save it for nights out.

Layers of scent
When I first spray this on in the morning the smell is really overpowering and not very pleasant, but as I go through the day I think the initial scent (which isn't so pleasant) fades away pretty fast and the softer more alluring undertones step forward. I don't think it lasts all day, but is nice for a few hours. It is not flowery but isn't too heavy either, woodsy with some sweet undertones.

I like it but the notes are a little off for me more musky I guess. I love more of a sexy sent or sensual. I like florals also I just wanted to try this it sounded so good. Does smell great just not on me
I like the smell the cocoa and other notes in it a real warm hearty smell but didn't smell so good on me. I guess florals smell better on me. I'd love to have a sexy sent just not that strong.

Cocoa Woods
I'm am admirer of Nest Fragrances. This is the first time the fragrance changed on me. Going on i could smell the coco very strong. But as a little time passed it changed. The other notes became more pronounced. First time, this isn't for me.

Woodsy with a side of musk

Yummy
Upon first spritz, I smell chocolate! It’s a bit strong and weird, but then the other notes combine with the cocoa note and it blossoms into a creamy light scent. This fragrance wears really close to the skin and on me it fades kinda fast. If you like unique, gourmand scents, try this one!

Cocoa Is Nice
I really liked this fragrance. I sprayed onto this cotton t-shirt I was wearing instead of my skin and it lasted over 12 hours. It’s not a fruity or floral or clean scent. I do get the cocoa for sure and the woods scent. A nice, sweet, Winter fragrance.

Cozy and a little spicy
I can see where this might not be for everyone. I totally enjoy it's uniqueness. I love the warm chocolate and woodiness.. A little bit sweet but more spice in the end. This goes with my chemistry but I could see where it woundn't go with everyone. I say give it a try especially if you veer toward spicy woods.

Its Ok
Ok I tried another NEST fragrance and fell in LOVE, this one I wanted to try it does seem a little "old lady" so I am not too fond of it. It is ok and a good winter scent but not one I will get again or that I would order a full bottle of. For a more mature woman not a younger scent at all. Also agree that it does not last long, goes on very strong and does die down to a more subtle warm scent. Still not good enough for a whole bottle. I wanted to try this for a while and it sat in my que for months

At first, I was not impressed. It starts out as very pine and very cocoa. However, after a few moments with my body chemistry, and throughout the day, the scent got better and warmer, and I love it!

So So Cocoa
I was really looking forward to this fragrance. After contemplating over it for months it was my first Scentbird subscription fragrance. At first it comes off strong and sort of masculine. Also at its start it is chocolatey slipping into a warmed vanilla ginger later but doesn't last very long overall. I have to reapply throughout the day and it doesn't seem to have much throw- if it sweeps past my face or very close to others they notice to compliment and I am reminded its there. Even after a few days of wear it didn't make a difference in reapplication. I do enjoy it and would recommend to someone who prefers lighter fragrance that is for them rather than others. I will wear this depending on the occasion however, it will not be in my regular rotation or likely return to my queue.

Good ol’ Cocoa
Because I am basically giving a free consumer commercial with no bias, I feel pretty cool! Listen, you might call this a “grandma scent”- but grandmas rich and you can smell rich too (if you’re good, your rich grandma might get you a bottle !) It has coconut (so tropical) then a musky, woodsy smell.. ( you’re going deep into the woods) Wear this on a date with the night..it’s mysterious. You could wear it when it’s cold out; the smell will warm you up.. if it’s warm outside, you wont want to take off all your clothes, but someone else might want tooo. Who knows! I don’t know ... Either way- I love this rich smell .. 🖤

It smells wonderful
I wasn't really sure about this when I first smelled it, I definitely thought it was not the smell for me, But it's beautiful chocolatey, nutty, Woody oh my goodness. Wish the smell would last a little longer but it's perfect for a night out. Definitely a Winter fragrance it's a little to heavy for Spring/Summer. I'm enjoying it I hope you can too!

Pleasant Surprise!
I first smelled this perfume in the bottle and thought there was no way I would ever wear this. The woodsy notes were far superior over the others. However, I sprayed it on myself, let it settle for a few minutes and smelled it again. This time I caught the cocoa and sweeter scents which I LOVE. This is a perfect fall/winter perfume and is definitely unique!

Unique and wearable
Love this scent! It gets better after a moment or two on your skin. For me It's a woody-cocoa. Not sweet or candy scented. It's so unique and distinct, but not overpowering. I could see wearing this everyday or to the office, etc.

Very true to life chocolate note...LOVE this one!
This is a favorite Scentbird pick for me....this scent is warm, cozy, and has just the right amount of spice and depth for the fall and winter months. On my skin, one spray is plenty, and two sprays is almost too much for my office space, so I would suggest going easy on sprays if you're going to be around a crowd. Longevity is great...I get several hours before it slowly fades. This is a GREAT scent!

Good as an all-around scent
When I received this scent I sprayed it on paper to get an initial impression and I hated it! Later, when I sprayed it on my skin and allowed it to warm a little, I really like it. It's a sweet scent and gives an overall warm feel. It's a touch non-descript in the realm of vanilla-café-baking type of scents but I do enjoy it. That said, I will likely not gravitate toward this one in summer or spring.

FAVORITE OF ALL TIME.
This is like nothing I've EVER smelled before. Chocolate is strong as first (it's actually all I could smell), but when it burns off in a few... WOW. Spicy, sexy, warm, and cozy all in one. So many layers and wow, it just keeps smelling better and better throughout the day. Loved it so much I picked up a sample at Sephora just to spray in my purse. Call me crazy but I am NUTS about this scent!

Strong Cocoa Scent Fades
I got this perfume as a sample from a monthly subscription box. I really liked it at first because it had a pleasant cocoa scent that was strong enough to easily pick out from the other notes. However, the perfume faded after about 10 minutes on me. So while it was very pleasing, it didn't last long enough to invest in it.

I love this one. It’s got a hint of chocolate that (if you like those scented makeup palettes, you’ll like this.) doesn’t linger, but the mix of warmth and the cocoa is mesmerizing. Great for fall. Love it.
