    Default Fragrance with coffee notes

    Other than Pure Coffee, which is tough to find for cheap, Im looking for a fragrance with coffee notes that isnt too sweet and around $50. Any suggestions?

    Some of my favorites are Rochas Man, New Haarlem, and A*men. New Haarlem is probably out of the budget but it's worth ordering a sample since you may want to buy it in the future. Rochas Man fits the bill but make sure to try before you buy.

    A medium to light grind element comes out of Lancome Miracle Homme. It isn't the focus, but it's there.

    rochas most likely since it is more reasonable, but you can buy a trinket bottle of new haarlem by bond #9 which to me is the ultimate coffee fragrance there is and hell i am not even a fan of bond.

    I got a tester of Trussardi Inside Men for about $20. It's a decent coffee frag and has positive reviews.

    If Rochas Man is a coffee frag, than it is more of a mocha than a pure coffee. It's definitely sweet, but whether or not it's too sweet depends on the wearer.

    Very Irresistible by Givenchy has a very distinctive coffee note. However that one turns salty on my skin (skin and fragrance don't agree with each other) so may be it's a little skin-sensitive.

    I cannot really get the coffee vibe in Rochas Man, to me RM is sugar water with some lavender thrown in. As a coffee addict, RM can not deliver any of the coffee flavor/smell that I drink everyday.

    rochas man is your best bet. like someone mentioned it has more of a mocha blend then actual black coffee(amen pure coffee). dont worry about not getting amen pure coffee you're not missing much. its pretty much unwearable in public to me but its nice to have because its interesting.

    Eau de Navigateur is a good one - very natural-smelling, so the coffee notes are stronger or weaker depending upon the batch.

    Yup another vote for Black Vetyver Café. Longevity isn't brilliant but it smells great.

    If you can find Kyoto (Series 3: Incense) by Comme des Garcons on Ebay, you might be able to snag it for $50. A great incense, with a well integrated myrrh prominent coffee note.

    Just throwing this out there since it's not within the budget, but if you're looking for black coffee without any sugar then MPG Eau des Iles is a good candidate. It's very dry and unsweet, which is the opposite of Rochas Man.

    Jacomo Silver for men. Should be in the $25-30 range for 100 ml. Plum, coffee, and amber are strong, and there is light pineapple in the top notes.

    PDB is a nice mix of coffee, vanilla, nutmeg, wood, and pepper. However, some may not like the mango up top. It took me a while to figure out that I had to avoid those tops notes as much as possible to enjoy the nice drydown.

    DKNY Be Delicious has a big coffee note to my nose, but the actual fragrance over all is just bleh.

    Vanille Mohka from Comptoir Sud Pacifique is all about dark, roasted coffee on me, with hints of vanilla. It lasts well on skin, and you can find it cheap

    Hos is the coffee note on trussardi inside and Nikos Homme? Both list coffee on their notes and they aren't expensive choices

    Like many who have recommended in this post, I highly recommend Rochas Man. Very well blended fragrance and extremely well-done. Creamy and smooth.

    What I like about it is that it's not a "I just poured coffee powder on me" smell, it has a well blended mix with a hint of Lavender and a decent scooping of Vanilla, giving a very nice sweet mocha smell. Very pleasant!

    Definitely under $50USD if you go to the right places.

    +1 on Trussardi Inside Men.
    The coffee note is subtle and far from sweet, blending in seamlessly with the woodsy base. An enjoyable scent in a good looking bottle.
