Rebel & Mercury Cerise En Cocoa Perfume Oil review
Cerise En Cocoa is the scent equivalent of an amuse bouche (amuse nez?) because I know there isn't cherry in the blend but I can smell it. My nose smells rose, then cherry, then rose. Red and white rose and red grapefruit give the ripe morello cherry note. The cocoa note is dark and the earthiness is further enhanced with vetiver. Cocoa in a good natural perfume is dark and rich, almost woody-spicy, and a world away from artificial chocolate scents. As the day goes on it settles into a rose-spice base, and I tend to refresh the application in the evening for another hit of the cocoa-fruitiness.
This is a fabulous balance of sweet, floral and dark, and has me sniffing my wrists like a mad thing throughout the day when I wear it. If you like rose and/or chocolate/spicy scents, I'd recommend giving a sample a try.
