    I had to douse myself with a sample to 'get' the coffee. I want to sample this again...it didn't move me the 1st time. And I love vetiver.

    I have not tried it, but I am assuming that, since the Jo Malone Black Vetyver Cafe is a cologne, it doesn't have as much sillage and longevity as an EDT. Am I right?

    All the Jo Malone fragrances are "Colognes" according to the website (except for five that are "Cologne Intense") I have only tried about five from the regular line and they seem to differ from average to very strong (Pomegranate Noir) - so I beleive they just named them colognes for some reason.

    I get around seven hours from Black Vetyver Café with some additional hours of a sublte woody drydown that stays very close to skin. It is no sillage/longevity monster but really nice.
