    Default Top coffee shop fragrance?

    Hey there,

    I have been on the hunt for a great coffee shop scent and I am wondering which other ones I should try. These are the ones I have sampled so far:

    Bond no.9 New Haarlem
    I Love NY for all
    Montale Intense Cafe
    PG Coze
    PG Aomassai
    Sebastiane Espresso Royale

    The one that has by far come closest is Sebastiane Espresso Royale. Really wonderful notes that seem to match the coffee shop vibe very well. Are there any better ones that you guys can recommend me try though?

    Givenchy Play Intense...get an excellent coffee and chocolate play (no pun intended)with this one. Rochas Man is another good option.

    I've only recently taken an interest in coffee related scents. I've never paid attention to them much. All i can say is that the few i've tried merely feature it as a supporting role.

    I've not found anything that really gives me the strong coffee note i desire.

    I love the really strong black coffee note in Aoud Café by Mancera, there is no oud in here, just coffee, vanille, amber and a little bit of flower.

    I would like to definitely try some of those for sure. Any that actually smells strongly of coffee?

    I see you live in NYC. Pop into MiN New York if you get the chance. They have testers of the entire line to sample.

    Have you tried MPG Eau des Iles? I get a very strong coffee scent from it and the note stays in the forefront throughout with good longevity.

    I haven't, but I'm going to research this now and hopefully get a sample. Thanks!

    If we're talking about coffee shop (or café) as opposed to just pure coffee smell, Serge Lutens Un bois vanille comes to mind for me.

    It reminds of sitting in a coffee shop with the smell of steaming milk and cream, cookies and bread everywhere....

    Without a doubt, I think you should next sample both Santal Noble and Eau des Isles both by MPeG. Absolute class in a bottle. Both of them.
