Boccanera means 'dark mouth' in Italian. Inspired by the ancient Mayan and Aztec drink Xocolatl (also known as the drink of the gods) a dark bitter chocolate, spice and chilli blend. It is chocolate in its purest form; the drink was often consumed for its rejuvenating benefits and was often used in traditional rituals. An aphrodisiac, this drink was intended to provoke bliss, stamina and energy.
Boccanera is a rich and bold scent with a decadent cacao bitterness to it, a kick of chilli and the smoothness of woods in the base. Driven by a dark honesty, the hot truth is revealed.
