Chocolate, Pinyon Pine, Pinyon Resin, Swiss Stone Pine, Tonka, Vanilla

Not to be used by women who are pregnant or nursing. Pinyon Truffle is an all natural botanical perfume in organic cane sugar alcohol.

Pinyon pine has a somewhat fruity taste and scent that makes it uniquely suited to pair with gourmand notes of rich cocoa absolute and sweet vanilla and tonka. Pinyon Truffle opens with a bloom of pinyon and swiss stone pine notes with the chocolate just behind. The tonka and vanilla serve to soften the edges of the pine note. After the initial application where the pine is most apparent, the blend quickly settles into an earthy gourmand. The concept was to present a perfume that featured cocoa in a gourmand capacity to showcase the pinyon note as edible, but to also portray cocoa in an earthy non-gourmand effect. This duality serves to create a mouthwatering yet grounding earthy scent that is unique and unusual. The dry down is not a typical pine scent. When combined with the sweeter elements and the fudgy chocolate, the pine shifts into a slightly spicy cardamom-like note with a touch of the fruity pinyon needles and just a trace of the recognizable pine fragrance.

Shake gently before use. Natural botanical blend in organic cane sugar alcohol.

I'm not very good at writing reviews so here goes nothing.

Pinyon Truffles smells like a piney, woody dark chocolate in a non-foodie way (if that's even possible). It's fairly unusual but works very well.

I have found that despite being all-natural Pinyon Truffles still lasts at least 4 hours (sometimes over 8 hours) with one or two swipes of the rollerball across the inside of each wrist.

When layered with Cocoa Absolute, the vanilla and tonka seem to have more throw, reminding me of a woody vanilla.

Mmm. Pinyon Truffle smells *SO GOOD.* I seriously want to lick my own skin when I wear this.

The chocolate, vanilla and tonka in this are a creamy, amazingly smooth, foodie dream, and they smell like sweet, expensive chocolate. First on, I get about 50% chocolate and 50% pine, and dries down to about 60% creamy, vanilla-y chocolate and 40% pine. It's very well balanced. There's a dark sweetness here that smells almost cola-like on my skin at first (minus the fizz) and almost like cola and an earthy, sweet chewing tobacco in the drydown. But mostly this is a glorious, creamy, sweet chocolate with vanilla edges, over a beautiful pine. The pine isn't sour at all (my usual problem with pine notes), but makes me think of sweet pine sap and crisp pine needles whipped into a delicious, glowing green liqueur, just for this truffle.

Pinyon Truffle is completely unisex, and smells dreamy on me and on my husband.

And I need to find some pine & chocolate truffles to actually eat, because I am now obsessed Very Happy
