A grownup confection of black licorice, mandarin orange peel, caramelized brown sugar, bourbon vanilla, candied ginger, tonka bean, blonde patchouli, cedar tips, oakmoss, and sandalwood.
While this perfume smells like a sumptuous treat, it's got a secret trick... Dr. Alan Hirsch (Director of the Smell & Taste Treatment and Research Foundation) did several studies on the effect of black licorice on the responses of men and women. He found that black licorice increased blood flow to *ahem* certain parts of both the male and female anatomy simulating sexual arousal.
"Little lady coyly shy
With deep shadows in each eye
Cast by lashes soft and long,
Tender lips just bowed for song,
And I oft have dreamed the bliss
Of the nectar in one kiss. . ."

My husband absolutely adores it (so, maybe there IS something to that licor... view moreice...) Trick or Treat is fun in it's complexity- I always notice something different each time I wear it. There's an earthiness to it, with sweet notes of tasty treats, and it's definitely more androgynous than other foodie scents. If you're a little ooky, and a little bit spooky... you will most likely enjoy this!! view less
