Didn't know about the cult of Angel when I ordered a sample of this. This was probably the first time I've truly experienced the top/heart/basenotes progression. I recently put mint leaves in hot water and it smelled very much like the opening of this. Then I get the slight bitterness of coffee/chocolate mixed with sweetness of vanilla/caramel, the different facets of patchouli. I love it and save it for special occasions.
Not sure why it's listed as moderate strength, seems stronger than most TFS oils, and longevity is among the best.

So fresh and airy . Very pleasant yet still masculine. Last long like all Fragrance Shop s!

Very similar to the tonka, chocolate, creamy gourmand cologne that A Men is known for.
Longevity was quite good. Projection and sillage are not as great as the real thing, but my understanding is that you generally don't get that with oils.

This is a top notch fragrance! Very unique. The review below described it well. Chocolate and caramel - but very masculine. It projects well on me and lasts really long. This is a fragrance the women will love.
Similar feel to it as "Unforgivable type" (Sean Combs).
So far in my top 3 fragrances:
Unforgivable - Sean Combs
Le Male - Gaultier
A Men - Thierry Mugler

Sweet chocolate caramel in a bottle. Distinctive, long lasting, anything but generic. I expected it to project a little more than it does, but that's ok. It means it's more suitable for more occaisions than I originally thought it would be. Only worn this "out" a couple of times so far, but already been told I smell "yummy" while wearing it. And that's no bad thing!
