Reviews of Intense Cafe

A very fruity rose on the opening - a sort of raspberry / strawberry nuance. In the perfume's body, I get musk, vanilla, sugar and fruity rose. It is a pleasant smell, smooth and not sharp. It projects well. I just wish there was any "cafe" in this intense cafe.

This is not a bad fragrance, but it is too much like others out there (Montale Red Aoud) or 24 Gold by ScentStory. Vanilla, chocolate, coffee, very gourmand, a winter fragrance.

My second sample from the house of Montale and this as well as the first (Red Aoud) are very floral from the start. I get no coffee in this juice and it does lean towards the feminine side of the line as well. It does get sweeter in the dry down. TRY BEFORE YOU BUY... unless you are of course into floral juice.

Pretty good coffee/vanilla in the beginning and then it becomes annoyingly sweet with a very dominant rose note. This is a heavy fragrance that lasts forever and projects heavily after the beginning fades away, so go light on the sprays and don't be fooled into thinking the smell at the beginning is what you'll get for the next 12 hours.

the coffee and vanilla is nice, a rose stands up in this. sometimes im feeling this and sometimes i dont because of the coffee and rose combo

While Black Aoud may be the most popular Montale, Intense Cafe is certainly the most hyped of late, and as a gourmand lover, I had high expectations, most of which were met. Intense Cafe is unusually sweet but impressive in that it's not cloying (24 Gold achieves this delicate balance as well).

The composition is mainly a balance of coffee, amber, rose, and vanilla that leans most heavily to vanilla. I found the opening more fruity and floral fresh, with the dry down more a harmonious blend of the notes above. Surely the vanilla is strongest, though, provide its characteristic stable sweetness---nothing over-the-top like cake/frosting, but definitely more to the dessert side, even like vanilla extract

The usual Montale power is there, in terms of above average projection and longevity. I'd highly recommend this for fans of gourmands, vanilla, and rose alike. Intense Cafe is now on my "to buy" list.
