    Smile Mancera Aoud Café, have you tried it ?

    Mancera line is really interesting, it seems like creamier & smoother Montale.

    By the way, I just blind ordered Aoud Café because of MiN NY's description of this perfume.


    How intoxicating! This brew opens with notes of peaches, black currants and bergamot.

    A heart of very balanced coffee swirls around a bouquet of amber and luscious flowers.

    The landing is soft, with white musk, exotic woods and just a touch of sugar.


    It sounds so delicious, but I can not find much feedback on this scent. Is it really new or hard to get or no one care for it ?


    Anyway, what with coffee craze lately ? Tom Ford Café Rose, Montale Intense Café, etc. I think coffee is great notes that is way under use in perfume industry.



    Please share your thoughts.

    My bet Wit, is that you will be pleasantly surprised. I own this and along with Intense Cafe by Montale are two of the better coffee prominent scents out there IMO.

    Thanks, Hednic for your feedback on Aoud Café, I also interest to try Intense Café, but AC interests me more.

    I think Mancera is another fantastic new house. Sand Aoud and Black Line seems really nice, too.

    IMO, Intense Cafe is much better blended and more polished than Aoud Cafe.

    Did you get a lot of coffee in Intense Cafe? I didn't but I only sampled once and didn't complain because it was still goooood.

    I'm afraid I can't add myself to the praise chorus. I find this line massively overrated and unnecessary. Sorry for the extreme frankness but I guess a dissenting voice could give a wider perspective.

    Aoud Black Candy, Voyage en Arabie Black, The Aoud and Aoud Café are interesting fragrances, the line is not groundbreaking but dignified for sure. Some of my reviews about Mancera are may be at moment not available cause posted with the previous format.

    I'd say it's on par with the Montale in terms of coffee prominence. I don't get much rose.

    It's a wonderful fragrance. Very coffee dominate with a tad citrus top. I love the scent but it didn't last long on my skin so I gave it away. But if it last for you the you have a winner or you hands bcuz it doesn't smell like anything else on the market. I also got a lot of compliments will wearing it.

    Finally got to try this one. Boy beyond disappointed, thankfully I did not blind buy this. I saw one review on fragrantica that said it smelled like celery to them, and man sadly I totally got that on my skin. Frankly, its kind of disgusting and gross. As it dries down its slightly better and smells alright, and I get a sorta sticky candy with some coffee in the background. Which that being said sometimes I do get a very distinguishable wiff of just straight warm coffee. But other times just in the background. So not a bad smell... But man even then honestly if I look for it, I can still smell the celery.

    Smells ok in small little wiffs, but in big wiffs man this can be pretty gross =[ The opening just kills it for me, I cant get past it and I keep automatically coming back to it.

    Still waiting for dunkin donuts and starbucks to make their own fragrance. =/
