Serendipity 3's Serendipitous


Having never been to New York City, I've not yet had the pleasure to go to Serendipity 3 but I have had their famous Frrrozen Hot Chocolate, I bought the mixes last year from La Creme Beauty which they sadly no longer have in stock, they do however have the Vosages Hot Cocoa Mixes which are beyond divine!

I had tried Serendipitous before but wasn't too impressed as they staying power was fairly lousy on me. As I've been flocking to comfort gourmand fragrances, I decided to give Serendipitous a second chance and decided to order myself a bottle this past Sunday (right after watching *surprise, surprise* Serendpity).

Serendipitous is described as: Serendipitous is the sophisticated new unisex chocolate scent with exotic hints of Tahitian vanilla and blood orange. From the restaurant that brought the world Frrrozen Hot Chocolate!

I can only detect the blood orange when I first spray it, it's more of a chocolate and vanilla fragrance on me. Not really a melted milk chocolate though. If you like Comptoir Sud Pacifique Amour de Cacao, you'd like this. I find them rather similar but I get more vanilla from CSP's fragrance.

I've heard Serendipitous described as a marshmallowy chocolate which is really the best description for it. I layered it with Jaqua's Chocolate Body Butter which I felt was a mistake at first but grew to like it after having worn it for an hour.

The staying power is rather poor on me but it's a wonderful fragrance while it lasts. I think that the Jaqua body butter overpowers the fragrance once it dries down as the chocolate in there is stronger than Serendipitous. This is a cozy comfort fragrance. Perfect for days when you need a little pick-me-up. :)

I ordered my bottle from Sugar Daisy which has it for $25/1.7oz / 50 mL
