Featured notes
Learn more about the top, middle, and bottom notes in this fragrance.
The smell of good coffee is one of life’s simpler pleasures. And when a robust coffee note appears in a scent, it elevates other notes, and enables them to shine more brightly. Coffee notes mixed with leather, rum, chocolate, as well as aromatic kitchen spices like cinnamon, create a complex and rich fragrance. Coffee can also add an aphrodisiac tone to a floral or citrus perfume. Coffee scents are best day or night as a pick-me-up or daring evening choice, and can be worn whenever you need their energetic aroma to boost your spirit.
