Not for everyone, but definitely for me!
Do you love woodsy scents? How about spicy? Leathery with a hint of tropical night blooming flowers? Slightly on the masculine side of the spectrum? If this is you, then you will probably love this as much as I do. It smells like a quiet night in front of the fireplace in damp, grey, late November with a cup of dark cocoa that's been augmented by a splash of Kahlua. This one goes in the Buy-A-Big-Bottle queue.

The only perfume I didn’t really like.
For some reason this scent left kind of a old lady smell and a little too much musk. With my body chemistry it didn’t really work well. But I can see why other people do love it. Just did not work on me.

Cocoa Baby!
I really enjoyed this scent, it has the sweet smell of the cocoa but its underlying notes are very sophisticated. It reminds me of date night at an island beach. I love that it's not and extremely aggressive scent after applied which makes it suitable to wear just about anywhere. Definitely worth trying.

Chocolate craving
This scent made a strong impression on me, to the point where it would pop into my mind and I’d have to steal a spritz. The cocoa and sequoia are the main players but sandalwood made everything a little softer I think. One of the best things I’ve smelled in a long time

Thought I’d hate it, but now I’m obsessed
I don’t like smelling like food, so I was a bit worried about this one. But I like Nest, sooooo. It’s not dessert. Instead, it’s spicy & woodsy, but still floral & feminine. Lasts a long time on me & gets me compliments. Another Nest winner!

From an expired bottle
I think I might have really enjoyed this but at the very first spray it had that unmistakeable rancid smell of perfume that has gotten too old and gone bad. I could smell the woody, chocolate notes "underneath" the acrid chemical smell so I cleaned the sprayer thinking maybe that was the problem. It wasn't. I was so very disappointed after having waited nearly two months for this to arrive to receive it in this condition. This was why I cancelled my membership.

This was just too spicy for me. My body chemistry often changes scents and they smell sompletely different on me after a while. This didnt alter much but it was just spicy. My mom said it was too masculine for me but I just wasnt impressed. Still looking for a sexy mysterious woodsy scent thst I like on me.

Cocoa Woods
My skin chemistry is so bad about turning chocolate notes to straight Tootsie Rolls whenever I wear them, so I was kind of happy when the cocoa in this one floated off pretty quickly in my wearing of it. The major player on my skin is the Tiare flower with the wood notes keeping things well grounded. It’s a lovely fragrance that I think will work much better in the cooler months.

I’ve loved every fragrance I’ve received so far, but this one is the best of all. It’s a soft, sweet fragrance that lasts most of the day. Truth be told, I reapply just because I love it so much. It is more cocoa-sweet than woodsy, but definitely a winner!

Interesting
At first i really liked it. And I’m still wearing it. It has a warm chocolate scent very woodsy. But then as i keep smelling it, it begins to smell very much like alcohol. Like imagine spraying yourself with homemade Baileys... that’s it. But i want to finish the sample soooo I’m still wearing it. It does wear off VERY quickly though. I’m starting to realize maybe these scents are not my fave. Hmm

No cocoa. No woods. Just unabashed chalky patchouli.
This to me, is devoid of its descriptors. No cocoa. No woods. It's got a dry slightly chalky/dusty vetiver type smell amplified with a lackluster bomb of patchouli. Sometimes patch can evoke chocolate/cocoa. Not this. This is medicinal and cold. I was severely disappointed with this one! I'm grateful that getting this on Scentbird allowed me to sample and I did not rush in and blind buy this as a full bottle.

Instantly scrubbed off
Not for me. I didn't smell any chocolate or Woods, I just smelled old lady and a sour dirty note. Definitely not something I want on my skin. Even my fiance wrinkled his nose and shook his head, the dry down may have been better but the top notes are so strong and distasteful to me that I couldn't leave it on to find out!

This definitely has a hint of chocolate and I love this fragrance! I put it on every single day. I've never worn something like this and it gives me a sexy confidence with it on. This was my first scentbird fragrance and I've now been through 7 samples and the others don't compare at all. I'm going to purchase it for sure.

Easy Tie With Midnight Fleur
Imagine chocolate, but with a little spice to it. Like Haitian chokola... it’s the perfect blend! I could never get tired of this scent.... I just want to smell it all day!!! There is not much projection and it doesn’t have longevity but it is perfect for those moments when there is lot of close contact. Flirty, alluring, and delicious!

I absolutely love this scent! At first I thought it was too strong but after about 5 minutes a faded into a softer more seductive scent. My husband hardly ever notices my perfumes but he loves this one! He called it "my sexy perfume". Its a very romantic scent with a hint of chocolate (sounds weird but I promise you will love it). You can smell the both the cocoa and the woods in this romantic perfume. Perfect scent for date night!

Love Nest but this is a fail for me
I do love Nest EDPs. They are unique scents & the lasting power is nice on skin and clothes. This one, however, was horrible for me. I was so excited when it came out that i blind bought a rollerball becuse the notes are right up my alley. I literally got none of what i was expecting upon first sniff in the air and i hated it. I still tried it on my skin, hoping it would smell bette and it turned my stomach every time I tried wearing it. I see how some people would like it but it isnt for me. Seemed to have thr typical stayimg power of their fragrances, which is awesome if you like it but it was hell for me lol

Unique scent - true to the name
This scent does in fact smell somewhat like cocoa initially (more like a rich cocoa, not sweet), that then ends up drying down to a woodsy/musky scent. the staying power is decent - It lasts through a workday (6-8 hours), and the scent is not overpowering or too much at any point. I'm considering buying the full size version.

I think this is one of those perfumes that smell different on different people. At first spray the smell has a chocolate scent that I was not liking. But after a few minutes it settled and gave me a nice woodsy powdery scent. On me it was not over powering at all. I really like it.

Something different
My first impression when initially sprayed is that it smells like Count Chocula cereal, strong of the cocoa and really sweet like the marshmallows. But that initial scent fades quite quickly and mellows out into a slightly spicy woody fragrance. At first I was afraid it leaned a bit more masculine for me but again that layer fades to a beautiful warm softer scent. I’ve never had a fragrance that I truly feel should be worn primarily in a certain season but I feel Cocoa Woods is definitely a winter scent. It is a closer to the skin scent with a fair longevity of around 4 hours before needing to be refreshed. I like it but I don’t love it enough to buy a full size bottle.

Soft and warm
Although this isn't a love for me, I really liked it! I found it soft, sweet, and comforting. The cocoa is pronounced, but the wood notes keep it grounded and from smelling like a brownie. The longevity could certainly be better, and it stays pretty close to the skin. Otherwise, I found it to be lovely.

Warm but cloying
First spray was very, very chocolatey- overwhelmingly so. As it wore longer on my skin, it became subtle, but I was hoping for a deeper, woodier scent. It reminded me of Ovaltine. It was a little strong for work, but nice for a cold day off.

definitely cocoa
I enjoyed this scent and will probably wear it till it's gone, but I would not order again, because there are other scents that I feel incorporate cocoa more subtly. With that said, this is a nice fall/winter scent, definitely unisex. Leans pretty single-ingredient to my nose. It seems to me to be average in how long it lasts--it is definitely not short-lived, which is always frustrating when you like something.

More wood than chocolate
This is way more wood than chocolate and wears light and close to the skin, which is honestly how I like my fragrances. Definitely 'dry' vs. 'sweet', and layers well some other dark chocolate scents I have on hand. (this takes Dame's Chocolate Man to a whole 'nother plane of awesome) The tiare comes out in the drydown and loses the chocolate almost completely, going borderline floral with it on some days.

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.

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.

Very nice
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
I really have enjoyed the Nest brand of fragrances. This scent is a bit too musky for my taste. I will still wear it on certain times, but it will not be my first choice pick.

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.
