Do you know of any good coffeeish frags (outside of the pricey New Haarlem) that
Ok, you mentioned New Haarlem and in earlier correspondence Miracle as well. Though I gave new Haarlem glowing reviews at NST a few months ago, I've found that I rarely reach for it...wonder why that is.
As for Miracle for Men by Lancome, I don't find that coffee plays too much of a role in this at all...it's more like someone is brewing a pot of coffee in the room next door and the scent merely trails in the background and combines with the candles and carpetfresh (not that Miracle resembles carpetfresh in any way)!
My current favorite coffee scent is Ava Luxe Cafe Noir, reviewed here. I had a sample and small decant and used up both of them. It may not project as much as I'd like, but it's incredibly warm, comforting, and rich.
Here's a list of others that I can recommend:
- CSP Vanilla Cafe (Mokha)
- L'Artisan L'Eau de Navigateur
- MPG Eau des Iles
- Angel for Men
- Mat; Very Male
- Yohji Homme (original)
- Balenciaga, Cristobal pour Homme
- CDG Series 7: Wood Coffee
- Jo Malone Black Vetyver Cafe
- Bond 9 So New York
Geeeesh! 3 Cafe Noirs...gonna have to have a sniff-down soon!
Hope this helps!
I know we've already done this, buycan you make any other rec's? Any off the beaten path coffee-inspired scents?
