Dark Chocolate, like foreign films and black coffee, is something you only get really into as you get older. A petite décadence that you’ll only understand when your tastes mature, when you’ve fully explored your sensuality. Our baptism into the darkness came about when we discovered Said London - the legendary Soho chocolatiers. Just walking in there off the cold, dark streets of W1 feels like a sensory reawakening, as you let their aromas into your airwaves, and the flavours onto your tongue. Said soon became a weekly, guilty pilgrimage spot for us, a place to train our senses. When it came to creating bottling our addictions, it was one of our first places we thought about. Bitter and sweet, without being bittersweet, Dark is a fragrance of pure indulgence.
Addictions become perfumes, bottled, without restraint or moderation, a concentration of excess.
