Chocolate isn't Just a Girl's Best Friend Anymore

Native to the deep tropical regions of the Americas, the beans of the cacao tree offer an intense earthy chocolate aroma. A robust espresso accord powers the fragrance to a sumptuous complexity, while a sprinkling of sweet golden honey adds a lusty richness that is hunger inspiring. Add to this the unique, smokey balm of Arabian fire-cured tobacco leaves and Cacao Tabaq defines sultry, exotic romance. This one will always leave you with the desire for more.


Chocolate candles are definitely decadent.  A while back Nest Fragrances my Godiva chocolate candles that were insanely delicious.  What I love about the Belle Fleur Cacao Tabaq candle is that it incorporates tobacco and ebony wood to make the candle as desirable to men as women.

What's interesting is that the cold throw doesn't scream chocolate like the Godiva candles.  Instead it offers hints of tobacco, amber and patchouli.  After burning for a while, the chocolate melts and surrounds the space without giving me a sweet tooth.  I do get a bit of earthy sweetness from the vanilla that blends perfectly.  I love the warmth and depth of this fragrance.  There is a touch of smokiness that I like as well and the espresso gives it a nice edge. 

The deep, dark, chocolate colored wax and vessel work well with this scent adding to the ambiance.  This Belle Fleur candle is definitely a girl and guys best friend.  Added bonus?  It won't make you fat.

    1. I know! This one is more earthy, though. I'm not sure it's your cup of hot chocolate... I know how much you love your Voluspa Truffle White Cocoa:)

  3. Chocolate scented candles may be all well and good, but I've got to have my chocy bars --- very difficult to substitute!! although, the hints of tobacco, amber and patchouli do make me interested (:

    1. I'm totally with you, Ms. Mel. I always have a stash of fine dark chocolate on hand at all times - even at work. I love chocolate candles as well on occasion. They are a fun indulgence:)

  4. This fragrance is SOOOOOOOOOO rich and complex. Love it! It's definitely my personal favorite scent from Belle Fleur thus far. Gorgeous. I am always impressed with anyone who can integrate the sweetness of cocoa into a home fragrance. L-O-V-E!!

  6. Cacao Tabac is a true gem. This candle is one of the most unique fragrances out there. I agree with Ryan, this is my favorite Belle Fleur scent as well. If you haven't tried this one, you should!
