    Default I Love Coffee Scents--Any Suggestions?

    Maybe it's because I live in Seattle, where the coffee culture is like a religion.

    The two scents that I have now that, to me, have a coffee influence is Cristobal & Mat Male, even though the latter is not one of my favorites.

    Any other suggestions?

    Bond 9 New Haarlem is,IMO,one of the best fragrances you will find that has a strong coffee note in it.

    Try SSS Cafe Bois, one of my favorite coffee scents. [smiley=wink.gif]
    Notes from the site:Sandalwood, hazelnut, coffee, and a touch of vanilla -- a deep and yummy combination for java lovers. Exclusive blend. Ask for extra sandal if you want it more woodsy with a subtler coffee note.

    I second Jo Malone. The vetyver note is quite subdued, the coffee rocks ! ;D

    I guess New Haarlem, Rochas Man & A*MEN go without saying...others are:

    Wood Coffee
    Frank No.2
    Kyoto (not too noticable though)

    L'Artisan L'eau Du Navigateur has been noted as being one of the first fragrances to use coffee in it. It's also one of the best scents, regardless.

    Bond No. 9's New Haarlem is so reminiscent of the aroma of a coffeehouse that when I first sniffed it -- I actually thought some loose coffee beans had made the trip along with the 'fume sample. *;D

    ...And not to over-analyze, but would a S.A. hand you a little dish of coffee beans to help clear your nose after sniffing New Haarlem?! *:-? :

    Jes' wonderin'...

    When I first smelled New Haarlem, it immediately reminded me of the Starbucks Coffee shop I used to work at. Every morning when we got the coffee brewing, the whole place would get filled with a dark, bittersweet coffee aroma. Smelling New Haarlem gives me deja vu of those mornings. A*men and Rochas Man smell more like chocolate than coffee IMO. Personally I think NH is the benchmark coffee scent, though I haven't tried them all.

    Cafe Pour Homme - Cofinluxe. The brown bottle with the plastic top and the simple illustration of a coffee bean...

    Incredibly smokey coffee accord. Entirely overlooked. Costs nearly nothing. What do you have to loose?

    I don't think it is. The bottle I have is this one:



    The box says Homme de Cafe. The bottle is brownish green (or greenish brown) and the cap is brown plastic.

    Try Serge Lutens' Arabie. The review I wrote (awaiting approval) likened this to being in a coffee shop.

    That's TWO for Miracle: one of my faves.
    Licorice candy for breakfast, and another dab of Black Vines by Kerosene. And a spritz of Plum Japonais for Sunday.

    I received my samples from SSS.
    I am very impressed.

    I sampled these last night:

    Cafe Bois
    Hazelnut Coffee
    Hazelnut Mocha

    If you like coffee scents? *all three of these are pretty good...seemed to have decent lasting power as well.
    Of course, I'll have to try again to make sure.

    Annayake pour Lui has very nice coffee note in the top&mid accords.
    With milk, methinks * as the scent has some creamy character.
