    Default paris cafe

    which cologne reminds you of ?


    Paris outdoor cafe, mid-morning, dark, light rain muffling any street noises, fresh cup of coffee in front of you on a glass table under an umbrella, there could be a slight scent of just warmed pastry coming from inside, your waiting for your sight seeing date.

    Noir de Reminiscence comes to mind... Patchouli and Sandalwood among other notes. Particularly matches the feeling of having a coffee on a rainy day outside at the café...

    In fact it's raining here right now, and the café is just around the corner! I might just go!

    Weirdly to me it's Parfums de Nicolai's New York, which does not remind me in the least of New York City. It has more human funk than the NYC I know.

    Great question. Add to the wonderful imagery and scents the whiff of cigarette/cigar/pipe smoke (although I'm not a smoker)...the scent for me is Chanel Egoiste.

    I'll agree

    I'd add Profumum Thundra. I've actually enacted this entire scenario, albeit much much earlier -- just substitute the Parisian Cafe with Cafe Coffee Day in Mumbai, and it was evening, not morning. I was with my girl

    Eau Noire - Dior

    It's chic like a Parisian and comfortable like a cafe with pastries cooking inside (not to mention the coffee note in it).

    On the other hand,

    I also second L'heure Bleue - it just fits the mood of paris on a rainy day so perfectly (without the "paris cafe" vibe IMO).

    I know the Parisians would be pissed but how about Versailles pour homme by Jean Desprez? Hmmmm.

    The last few times I sat in a Paris cafe I was wearing Mure et Musc Extreme which was great. Probably more that it was Paris rather than the scent

    But I think Apres l'Ondee would be ideal.

    Although i have never been to Paris, i think Malle's En Passant would work well.

    Check out this description.

    great idea on the web site Prince Barry. Great imagery on the lady walking by, Adonis.

    Hey Adonis, I just tagged you---- you set up the next scenario.

    I'm wearing YSL Jazz today. It might be just the thing to warm up a rainy breakfast date in Paris.

    Isn't Ineke Ruhland coming out with a new perfume based on impressions of Paris? Believe it's called Field Notes from Paris (great name - btw, she is executing her perfume projects letter by letter through the alphabet).

    My personal choice for the scenario would be Chant d'Aromes by Guerlain.
