"Born in the Piedmontese region of Italy famous for its chocolatiers, il Bicerìn is Turin's take on simple hot chocolate, where, in the early part of the 16th century, Signore Philbert served hot chocolate to laud an Italian victory over the French. In the 1700's espresso and frothy whipped cream were added and il Bicerìn as we know it was born.

The aroma of an Italian cafe, leather and fine tobacco, creates an elegant ambience as we wait for our order to arrive: indulgent layers of bittersweet chocolate and gianduja slowly melted into whole milk and topped with Italian espresso and heavenly whipped cream.  Bellissimo!"

In the bottle:  Coffee and a very odd note, which I am not sure if I like or dislike.  A tiny bit of burnt coffee or plastic? Not sure.

On skin, wet:  Chocolate coffee cream without the odd note. 

Drying:  Smells like a cafe.  Maybe with faux leather seats?

Overall:  It's an odd one, but I am growing to like it.  It conjures (ha) up a whole cafe atmosphere as well as dessert coffee!  It's not overly strong or horribly foody, so it works for me.

This reminds me of O Caffeine, which was a very sweet coffee with an undertone of burnt coffee on me.  As it dries down, it's not as sweet as O Caffeine, even though I'm getting more of a chocolate note to it.  Earthy chocolate and coffee with a slightly burnt edge.  I was hoping for more of the whipped cream and leather, lol.
