All Rose Note
I thought this was going to smell like a caffe latte with vanilla as described...it does not. This is all rose. Rose is the only note you smell. And rose happens to be the note I hate and stay away from. I left the perfume on my skin for an hour to see if it would eventually change, it didn’t. The rose actually got stronger and stuffier. Really disappointed.

This wasn’t terrible, but wasn’t great either. It didn’t smell much like coffee at all, which is what I expected. It smelled much more of roses, and then dried down to a generic sweet smell.

Pleasant
I usually like very warm, spicy, almost masculine fragrances but every now and then I like to switch it up with something a bit sweet. This is definitely spicy but sweet. It took a bit for me to adjust to the scent but after putting it away for a few months I really love it. The only downside is that it takes quite some time for the scent to dry down and fade from that strong and sweet alcohol-ish scent. I recommend that you apply it at least 30 minutes before you walk out the door so that you're not bothered by it. That makes it sound bad, but really it's quite delicious!

Blown Away!
This scent completely surprised me because I was expecting a super heavy coffee and caramel type of gourmand scent, but was shook to get the initial scent of a watery and sweet rose! I was so so confused, but as the scent dried down it became a milky vanilla rose scent with a latte in the background! I mean! I am so in shock and cannot stop smelling it! It’s so unique and I definitely have this scent on my birthday list! It’s floral, but to me it’s not headache inducing and I think if your scared of rose this fragrance is not your granny’s type of rose scent, but rather a fresh rose bouquet scent! I can go on about this, but this is in my top fragrances that I own! Please give this a try trust me!

I LOVE this scent. I don’t normally go for florals, but with one floral note & a rich mix of otherwise earthy scents, this one keeps it simple while delivering complex intensity. I feel transported when I wear this, & it makes me feel like I’m glowing deep inside. Lives up to its name & it’s description. Would buy again!

I made the mistake of spraying it twice. Only once is definitely enough. it lasts all day and days on clothing! I like that honestly. For me the smell is of blackberries and vanilla. I dont smell anything other than that combination but I love it. Smells edible!

Rename - Intense Chocolate
This smells great if you love chocolate. It smelled more like chocolate than the name Cafe insinuates. It didn’t smell very coffee-like. It’s long lasting, but disappointed with the singular chocolate note.

unique, maybe sexy?
I like all the notes I'm just not sure whether they all work together. it kind of smells like a little darker Black Opium or Divine Decadence. I'm definitely going to try it out a few times, make my boyfriend smell it, and just see if I warm up to it, but I'm not completely sold. it's definitely bold and unique though, I could see liking it for a night out.

Awful
I have never hated a perfume so much in my life. I really thought I'd like this one but it smells awful on me. I can faintly smell rose but it's so overpowered by a sharp chemical scent it actually makes me feel ill. I smell none of the other notes in this. I thought it would die down after a while but it hasn't. Still smells harsh and awful. :(

This is spectacular fragrance and perfect for this time of year. So luxurious, sweet, spicy, and deep. I bury my nose in my scarf to drink it in all day. I spray it on in the morning even though I’m in a fragrance free workplace with my middle finger in the air. No one controls me!! I’m an adult woman and I’m gonna smell thissss good.

More vanilla than coffee
Goes on a bit harsh and alcoholic. Slight coffee and amber at first but dries to a very strong vanilla. Perhaps it was just my body chemistry but I didn't much of the rose at all, and the vanilla made it too gourmand for my preference. High quality fragrance nevertheless, lasted and had medium/good sillage that I enjoyed (but might not be appropriate for all office environments)

Absolutely addictive scent
My very first Scentbird delivery and it is such a beautiful fragrance ! This has a smell of classy , warm, rich , expensive. Starts out warm and vanilla , dries down warm and rich , and I can smell subtle undertones of warm berry . I will need this in my life permanently! If you like Marc Jacobs Decadence you will absolutely fall in love with this fragrance .

Beautiful Fall/Winter Rose
This is a gorgeous take on a somewhat popular scent combination of coffee and rose. I will say that to me, this is a well-balanced fragrance. I don't think that the rose totally dominates the coffee notes, or vice versa. But, the scent of a dark, fragrant rose is present and draws you into the fragrance. As for the coffee, I would say that this smells more like a mocha scent - coffee with dark chocolate syrup and cream. So, it is there, with a creaminess that accentuates the rose scent. This is a scent that you really want to bury your nose in. It's a very cosy scent. I love this one.

Long lasting rose
At first spray, the scent is a sharp citrusy scent that quickly fades into rose and vanilla. The perfume lasts a good 4 hours and I have received many compliments wearing it on my first day. It just moves with you. The coffee scent is very, very subtle. Unless I had already knew there was coffee in it, I would not have even noticed. It is a strong musky rose that ends with vanilla scent on the skin. I didn't think I would love this, but I do!

Nope
Unfortunately, I HATED this scent as a perfume for me. I wanted so badly to love it. It sounds SO good in the description, and I have two other Montale perfumes that I just adore, but this one was not for me at all. The quality is definitely there, it is a Montale after all. However, I got nothing but roses and musk from it. I did not smell any coffee or amber or anything to even slightly remind me of a cafe. I tried it several times too, I kept thinking if I gave it another chance I might come to like it. It also seemed like a very masculine rose and musk scent to me, very strong. It definitely lasts a long time, the longevity is great. I wouldn’t mind this on someone else probably but I couldn’t wear it. Maybe I’ll spray it in my car occasionally to make it smell nice.

Beautiful Warm Magical
This is a lovely fragrance wafting in clouds of silky coffee and luxury. Imagine sitting in a cafe in Paris, espresso shots all around and your next to a grand dame who knows her way around town (in a good way). This is for a mature woman in command, a mother, a lover. This is a personal scent, bringing out the core of what it is to be feminine. BUT it could easily be worn by a man as well perhaps expressing his compassionate, fatherly side. It is warm, it is a hug, it is comfort. Rich coffee, brightened by a giant spicy rose and all blended with a boozy splash of brandy - very gourmand, But, floral too. It can also be layered very well because of how mellow it is (don't get me wrong I don't mean weak I mean soft I guess, or consistent in odor - it is not at all edgy), Ive blended it with rose perfumes, which balanced it a bit more to the floral side, because on me the coffee aspect dominates. But I think it might also smell great layered with Serge Luten's 'Fille En Aiguilles'. Im going to experiment with that soon. Oh My Goodness... perfection... hats off to the creator (Pierre Montale?)

Rose and Vanilla
I wanted to try this perfume because I've been looking for a good coffee fragrance. The coffee from this perfume smells kind of like one of the bottled lattes, very milky and sweet with just a hint of coffee plus roses. I wish the coffee came through a lot stronger. The syrupy sweet rose scent gets a bit too much after a while.
