I want to say that while I wouldn't buy this product for myself, I'm not saying other people shouldn't buy it, or that there's something wrong with it. Indulge is very pretty. I loved it in the sample vial. I was eyeing it for months, then found a swap opportunity. Unfortunately, I didn't test drive it well first. About half the chocolates out there go putrid on my skin. I have no doubt they work on other people. The bad ones tend to be a chocolate spice combination which may be traceable to a specific chocolate spice oil. But be that as it may, I will say that if you are one for whom chocolate can go putrid on skin, then test this thoroughly before buying. It is a somewhat uneven combination of cinnamon, chocolate, orange, and vanilla notes, very rich, very gourmand. There are a couple of different versions floating around out there, and it has a more sophisticated feel to it than you might expect from the notes. But alas, it is one of the potentially problematic chocolates.

I got a sample of this scent in a La Creme order, and while I enjoyed trying it, I don't think I'd really want to own this scent. The notes are listed below, so I won't list them again.
When I first applied the scent, I got hints of dark chocolate and citrus that quickly deepened into something spicier. As the spices kicked in, they kept the chocolate from getting too sweet on my skin. This is a chocolate scent without the dreaded Play-doh accord that I normally get from these. I wouldn't mind wearing this scent around the house occasionally, but it's a little too foody for my tastes in general. Still, it is well done and those who like foody scents should try it.

Yuck! I'm a candle! Not a good scent at all. I might spray this in the room around Xmas but that's it. I'm a gourmand fragrance lover but this is overkill to me. So artificial and canned. Kind of like Vanilla Cannelle by CSP but it's missing that high quality ability to meld with one's own scent. This just sits on top with a rather flat, dense stench of Gingerbread, YUCK. Wow, I really hate this. I will throw this out because if I gave it to someone they might wear it around me and that would just be bad.

Ooh, I love this one! Yes, it is foody (but not sickly sweet foody), so if you don't like foody scents this is not for you. On me I smell dark chocolate, orage, cinnamon, with a hint of vanilla. All in all it melds into a yummy gingerbread chocolate scent. It's lasting power is pretty good at about 4 hours or so and fading into a vanilla cloud. It is soo comforting, and although it is more of a holiday scent, it is something I'll wear all year round (also a great before bedtime scent as well). A winner! Update: I get serious compliments whenever I wear this - it's still a fav and still yummy!

This was very marmalade-y on me at first - unfortunately, a sickly/sugary mass-produced supermarket marmalade rather than the luscious fruit-heavy homemade kind - and then it turned to pure cinnamon and sugar. Not unpleasant, but very foody, and frankly, if I'm in the mood to indulge, I'm going to choose something much more rich and decadent than this. For someone looking for a fairly straight-up cinnamon scent, this would probably be perfect.

A very pleasant fragrance that smells like candied oranges, cinnamon and vanilla. It's very Christmassy and warm, and perfect for the cool months. Surprisingly lasting for an inexpensive fragrance. Per the reviews below, I agree that it tends to settle down into a generic "potpourri" scent. On me, the drydown actually smells like a burning bayberry-spice candle, complete with beeswax note. And yet, I can't stop smelling it when I have it on.

This is a dark ambery chocolate, plus sweet orange marmalade, vanilla, cinnamon and sugar. I don't know what the official notes are but I'm describing what it's like on me. It's the perfect Holiday scent.

Because I'm a stickler for foodie scents, this one is a winner with me. It smells like a delightful gingerbread cookie. I really don't smell any orange in it, but I do smell a buttery chocolate/ginger. It even kind of smells like a fried banana mimicking that of e-tailer LOL Candles Sweet Fried Banana scent.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Other Hair: Brown Eyes: Green
by Eadward is an extremely sweet fragrance with top notes that remind
me of Cherry 7-Up. Give it a few minutes and the ginger becomes more
prominent giving it a very strong gingerbread cookie feel. I do get
the cake batter accord out of it at this point as well along with an
interesting and fun buttery accord. Throughout, Indulge is more of a
sugary fragrance than it is vanilla. And I was hoping for more
chocolate, or ANY chocolate for that matter. The first 15 minutes
are somewhat complex but the dry down is very one dimensional,
however it still doesn’t smell like a weak $0.99 body spray from
Wal-Mart. It's richer and longer lasting than any of those by far.
I really like that "baked" cake feel that happens to it
after about 15 minutes when the cinnamon begins to take over. But
two minutes later it smells like a stick of Big Red with a touch of
ginger, which I really don’t care for. I like the cake/cookie
stage much more than the cinnamon stick + ginger phase. I wish they
could preserve the top notes because the dry down is a bit of a bore.
white chocolate, cinnamon, ginger, brown sugar, orange marmalade

This does smell like gingerbread. It really does. It isn't very complex at all. Although it is a good smell its not something I would want to smell like. Waaaay too foody for me. I think this would be great room fragrance though.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
I too do not like this scent, way too cake batter-ish for me! yuck! strong and pungent! not for me. similar to CSP Canelle, which I also do not care for.

This is the fragrance that has proven to me once and for all that other than vanilla, I don't like wearing the scent of baked goods unless they're actually edible concoctions full of calories.
This is one of those foodie scents that I just can't get into. Citrus? Bring it on. Tea? Oh yeah. Sugar? Probably. But macaroon? No no no.
Like Maximina said, it starts with a thick and buttery note underlying chocolate, coconut and some sort of nut that seems a bit like almonds and walnuts combined. After a half hour, the cocoa and coconut scent intensify and the whole ends up smelling like macaroons. It is as if I bought one of those cheap 99 cent boxes of macaroons from Zellers/Walmart and rubbed them on my skin. Blech! not what I was going for at all. Alors, awai donc, swap time.

Wow, strange. I opened the vial and felt like puking as it has this initial icky buttery note that is unbearable. But once you sniff deeply and apply the scent that quickly vanishes and you are left with a Spicy Country Home scent. Really pretty for a room spray but not something I desire to wear unless I am baking Christmas cookies or mulling spiced wine. More like pot pourri than perfume and that initial butter note is offensive.

I bought this unsniffed from LaCreme because I thought for $28 and having such edible notes it would be hard to dislike. I don't hate it, but it's not my thing. Eadward Indulge made me queasy, pure and simple. It's a very odiferous concoction of marmalade, cinnamon, brown sugar, and other such notes that are very thick and overwhelming. I feel like I'm drowing in a huge vat of marmalade with spices being prepared for Christmas dinner... not a good thing, I assure you. I have not disliked a scent so much in quite some time. It suffocates me the way KM Loukhoum does, but it's worse than that. The only Eadward scent I kind of like is White Chocolate, and that one was limited edition. Go figure. Oh well, I tried it, bought it, and returned it, never to be smelled again. I disliked Indulge very much, and I love sweet and foody scents consistently. Try before buying.
It's way too strong and unrefined, not smelling of gingerbread, but of spices. Cinnamon and ginger is the predominant combination here, and it's too much for me. Smells much more like a room air freshener than a perfume. It's a pleasant smell, but not one I want following me around on my skin constantly for a few hours. Cheap, but still sniff before buying. Another regretted unsniffed purchase for me. :(

I just adore this scent and so does my DH! It reminds me of spicy gingerbread with maybe a hint of cinnamon and nutmeg, and dries down to a creamy and warm vanilla base. The lasting power is not that great, but for $28, you can carry an extra bottle around with you for all-day spritzing!

I bought this one unsniffed after hearing all the raves about it, and figured that for the price I wouldn't lose much money if I didn't like it. As it turns out, I like it. I don't love it, and it's not tremendously original, but it's nice, particularly considering what it costs. In the bottle, I get more of a vanilla note; on my skin, it's almost entirely cinnamon, with a touch of ginger, maybe? I wish the vanilla carried over onto skin. That said, it's a nice, spicy gourmand scent, reminiscent of CSP's Vanille Cannelle.

This does remind me of german spice cookies or gingerbread but i was expecting something more multi-dimensional. I was also disappointed with the lasting time. I could barely smell it an hour 1/2 later and it failed to carry at all. ( I am really picky with how much my fragrance carries. I want to get whiffs of it but I don't want EVERYBODY around me to ask about it)

Just when I thought I was *over all things gourmand, along comes Eadward Indulge. Spicy, warm, sweet, and as cozy as a fragrance can be. Strictly a winter/fall fragrance, it's much too heavy for warm weather. Not a serious frangrance, very playful and fun. Great price to pay to smell like a Gingerbread Dream!
Age: Unknown Skin: Other Hair: Other Eyes: Other
I Love this scent! A little bit sweet, a little bit spicy...don't get a whole lot of chocolate, which is fine with me. Perfect for daytime use in cooler weather. I too, get that "Candle Shop" feel from it, but I like Candles and feel very cozy wearing this perfume : )

On me Indulge starts out smelling strongly of cinnamon and orange peel with a touch of brown sugar and vanilla laid over cocoa powder. As it dries the orange fades away and I'm left with a subtly sweet cinnamon and cocoa combination. The cinnamon stays black-pepper-spicy throughout; I would say it's the prominent note. Indulge isn't a sophisticated scent but it's mighty appealing to this cinnamon lover.
