    Default Need a nutmeg/roasted coffee basenote.

    Hey all, I was wondering if there were any frags out there with the middles notes of Polo Double Black in the basenotes? PDB has nutmeg and roasted coffee in the middle notes and these are the notes I like the best. I want to buy a frag that has this kind of combo in the base note. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

    I'm pretty sure there was an active nutmeg thread just a couple of days ago, so you may want to search this board for it. As for coffee, Maitre Parfumeur et Gantiers Eau des Iles has a pretty strong coffee note, along with copious smoke.

    If you want a fantastic coffee scent, then Ava Luxe Cafe Noir is superb. It has a little lavendar in the top which compliments the coffee and although there's no nutmeg, there's cardamom and allspice, which might satisfy your need for spice.
    The drydown is warm and woody but not over sweet like a lot of gourmands. I love it.

    A word of warning: just be careful of coffee-dominated frags as they may not necessarily work with your skin chemistry. I found this out with cafe Noir - it smelt very nice but didn't work for me in the end.
