    Don't judge: Michael Jordan Legend.

    Bond No. 9 New Haarlem and Rochas Man had a baby. Very inexpensive. Cheap enough to blind buy. You might even find it at a Ross or TJ Maxx in your town.

    This fragrance is exactly what you described (wearable coffee/cocoa) and its great.

    Did rhey re release L'instant de Guerlain PH Eu Extreme and I didn't know about it? I am also looking for a good coffee mocha scent . I'm going to try and sample Bond No.9 I Love New York For All. I heard it was a better New Haarlem which was way to sweet for me.

    I would agree with this, however, at the Mid/Base, it transforms into a Citrus fragrance, so something to be mindful of.

    Perhaps Michael Jordan Legend may be what your after? Play Intense is a good suggestion as well.

    Dior Homme Intense for sure.

    I find Guerlain L'Instant Extreme to be very overrated both in terms of scent and longevity of the scent.

    The ultimate gourmand, edible, deliscious fragrance out there that I can think of is...

    Serendipity3's "Serendipitous"

    ...Get it on Amazon for like $40. It's marvelous. NIche and a well kept secret.

    Try Elixir des Merveilles by Hermes. Marketed to women, it's easily wearable by a guy. Smells like chocolate covered orange peel and salt.
