En Voyage Perfumes, the perfume house founded by Shelley Waddington in Carmel-by-the-Sea, California, has debuted three new fragrances that are sure to delight lovers of oriental scents, gourmands and ... chocolate!

The new trio Indigo Vanilla, Captured in Amber and Caf Cacao were showcased at the Artisan Fragrance Salon, held in San Francisco, CA on March 15, 2014. Visitors to the exhibit were able to sample and purchase the new fragrances, and the three will be officially launched by En Voyage later this year.

In the meantime, En Voyage has given us a peek at these new beauties.

The sweet gourmand notes are grounded in a classic, sensous base of wood, amber and musk with a dollop of vanilla to continue to the sweet theme.
