Gourmand fragrances aren't supposed to be dangerous, but nobody seems to have told Slumberhouse. That's good news for all of us, because Ore, with its sensuous heart of dry cocoa, lactonic balsams and dark wood, makes us think more of the bedroom than the dinner table. From the first smell of tantalizingly complex dry cocoa, it's evident that Ore has no intention of following in the footsteps of a typical gourmand. This is a rich, raw cacao note that blends seamlessly into the dark guaiac and oakwood to evoke the kind of sensual decadence that has nothing to do with the calorie count. A boozy caramel delivers enough warmth to bring a comforting balance to the mystery and provides a backdrop for the creamy balsam that's quickly becoming creator Josh Lobb's signature. No matter how you feel about traditional gourmands, one smell of Ore will be more than enough to make you hope that Slumberhouse never stops breaking the rules.

I love the dry down from cocoa to long-lasting, rich, smelling incense. Great for winter.
The main notes here are cacao powder, woods, and this green colored amber. I get the chocolate powder accord mentioned below, but to me it doesn't smell cheap. There is a vanilla note that rounds off the edges of this fragrance. I tested 2 sprays on my skin; initial projection is nice and then faded down after 15-20 minutes. I've tried quite a bit from Slumberhouse and there is something melancholy about their fragrances, which I actually really really love and find true for Ore as well.
Great fragrance, give it a try and you will not be disappointed
I was excited to try this one. Either my sample was "off" or my skin chemistry is it's nemesis but this smells exactly like cheap milk chocolate drinking powder. That's it.
This stuff is really darn good. I get chocolate mostly. One of those fragrances you wanna keep smelling the whole time it's on.
