After eight, patchouli.
I have to agree. This smells to mint chocolate. Or chocolate mint. There is indeed a variety of a mint hybrid (Mentha x pipperita `Chocolate Mint´) that is curiously mint-chocolate scented, but i have no idea if that is the one that was used in here.
Strangely enough, the notes list doesnt contain cocoa, although, again, the illusion of chocolate is very vivid. In my research i found out coffee and sesame were also listed in other sites. Mystery solved. Coffee and cocoa are brothers...
I personally believe that it might be the accord "coffee/roasted-hazelnut/oily-sesame" what gives this unmistakable mouthwatering chocolate scent.
It starts as a fresh, green blast of citrus and mint, very cooling. Very soon the mysterious accord takes over: whatever it is, mint chocolate or chocolate mint, it reminds to the english "after eight" sweets, which are candies, yes, but to be eaten when kids are off to bed, and taste adult and sophisticated. And so, VI is a an adult, sophisticated gourmand at this stage. The nutty quality makes it specially yummy. Patchouli is noticeable in the background, rich and luxurious.
After a while, the enjoyable chocolate (and the mint) are sadly vanished. Then patchouli steps out, along with some pencil shavings. I love pencil shavings, and i have a very high tolerance to caustic sawmill wood scents (which is not the case of Very Irresistible) but i find now the patchouli raspy and tiring. And i dont want to wear it anymore.
Projection is remarkable.
Probably many others would enjoy this, i admit, but i only like the first hour i am wearing it, when you know there is patchouli but is not all about it. Im torn: I love the after eight... but around ten o´clock, i dont like it anymore... I guess i am not a Very Irresistible guy.
