The chocolate accord evokes an atmosphere of pleasant relax and induces physical well-being. In effects chocolate is a sensual food that stimulates our production of endorphin, substance that has tonic, euphorising and antidepressant effects. its perfume favours abandonment to the hedonistic pleasures of orality, helping us taste life at the moment.
In Perfume-therapy, the aroma of Cocoa is recommended for persons who are unable to enjoy the pleasures of life because of their exaggerated seriousness and intransigence with themselves.
Vanilla is most important in a chocolate note. Without it Cocoa would be dry and bitter. Vanilla provokes a feeling of well-being and of relaxation, its olfactory message of good humour and joy is very antidepressant. Its aroma is euphorizing and comforting, it attenuates bad temper and irritability, it loosens tensions, melts down dissatisfaction and frustration, giving a sense of physical satisfaction bound to the oral phase of first infancy.
For this reason the scent of vanilla helps also to dominate the nervous hunger, often caused by an affective emptiness, awaking in us the primordial emotion that a totally satisfied baby has after feeding. In this sense the aroma of vanilla produces a beneficial regression, awakening in us the inner child.
The somehow aphrodisiac effect that Chocolate perfume can have is due to it’s capacity to awaken in our olfactory memory the sensual emotions experienced while enjoying cakes, pastries and creams, of which the sweet aromas of Cocoa and vanilla are often the spirit. An other reason is that these two scents bring us back to the pure physical phase in which a baby discovers the world only through the feelings that its body gives him (baby’s talcum scented with vanilla and Amber). For this reason ‘Amber Chocolate’ is a fragrance that has the capacity to reassure us and to pull down inhibitions, tickling in us the extreme experience of ‘taking a bath in the Chocolate’ …
The sensuality of ‘Amber Chocolate’ has also a chemical explanation; some molecules of the essences that compose it are very similar to human pheromons and said to have the property of tying themselves with them chemically, fixing them while putting in prominence our personal odour, just as a dress wraps the body enhancing its physical beauty. Elegant and enticing.
