Pleasant and warm
I would actually rate this perfume 3.5 stars rather than 3. This is a sweet Oriental latte type of scent, sweet due to something rosy/musky more than sugar. This is pleasant but take note that the coffee note is very very restrained, it is not prominent, not weak, but not strong like freshly roasted. I like this, because even if it doesn't have the magic of Roses Musk it reminds me of it somewhat cause of the muskiness. It stays around for a long time, but it definitely smells lovelier/complex for the first couple of hours of wear.

Reminds me of fall
It smells like a crisp fall evening. Not too sweet, not too musky. Perfect balance of both.

Rose done well
This is a wonderful scent. I don't care to much for Rose, but the Rose is done very well in this fragrance not to heavy or light its done just right. The Coffee is superb a nice coffeehouse that serves great coffee. The vanilla and amber with hint of floral and musk is very nice. I love it because its warm and it last all day. It smells so delicious!!!

Love this
My favorite combinations of scents. I forgot what I ordered and just tried it on and went about my business only to get lots of compliments and moments throughout the day where I was aware of the lovely scent. Floral, but not like grandma. More musky and vanilla undertones.

This is the perfect combination of coffee, vanilla, and rose. A little goes a long way and it lasts forever. No joke, one of the longest wearing perfumes I have tried. I also like layering this with other scents and body creams.

Sour Chocolate
No. No. No. I wanted to like this. I love the idea of it. Roses and coffee, maybe some vanilla in there. This smelled like bad chocolate and pungent sourness which I think was supposed to be the rose scent. Maybe the rose is synthetic and chemical making it seem sour? Very disappointed.

Way too sweet for my taste
I know this got 4 stars, but for me...yuck!!! It was so sweet that I can not wear it! To me, it reminded me of chocolate syrup & not in a good way either! I'm wondering if I received a bad batch, from the reviews I'm reading or what!? But it honestly reminded me of the sweet smell of a certain bug spray we use in Florida! It's that weird & sweet smelling scent? I wonder if I should contact CS, IDK!? Because it's very rare that I dislike something this much!!!!!

Montale Intense Cafe
A favorite of mine; I have a lot of frags and sometimes go 2-3 months with little to no repeats, but this one tends to make it into rotation at least twice a month. I bought a bottle after one wearing. It?s inoffensive, unique, and addictive. Rose, and more rose, with a lush vanilla and amber, very much like Mancera Roses Vanille. The light handed coffee note reduces the sweetness a bit, seems to be a touch of chocolate too, making it go into gourmand territory without being overly sugary. I also smell a slight medicinal type oud in the drydown that is in many Montales to varying degrees whether they list it or not. Lasts a long time, can smell it the next day. Beautiful.

Intense Cafe? That's a stretch. Maybe Moderately-Interesting Cafe.
This scent was... okay. It isn't bad, it just... isn't quite what I expected. It's lighter than I thought it would be. I expected more of the spice and coffee notes to come out. It has cafe in the name, so where is the coffee? It's mostly rose and vanilla. Sometimes I catch a bit of the incense-y undertone but honestly, it's mostly rose and vanilla. Nothing exotic or mysterious to write home about. I was hoping for a fragrance that would transport me to a an exotic locale not a nursing home cafeteria. That might be harsh. It's not BAD. It's not AMAZING. It's you know, alright. Just ok.

Unique
I really loved this scent mostly because of how unique it was. I should preface and explain that I've always been one to like stronger, musky scents with floral notes. I used to mix my own feminine scents with my husband's Burberry colognes to achieve this type of scent on my own, so I was pleased to see something already mixed to perfection for me. So, this scent was right on the money for me. If you're not into that sort of thing, you're not going to like it as it is very distinct. I also received a ton of compliments when wearing the fragrance. My only complaint is that it didn't last more than a couple hours on me. It might on others but for me, it wore off quickly.

Rose and vanilla latte
Rose and coffee notes really shouldn't work together, but somehow in this they do. After the first blast of rose calms down, I get an unchanging 50/50 rose and vanilla latte for hours...and hours...and hours lol. Strong projection and longevity on this-- don't abuse the sprayer!

I would say intense vanille instead but
Nice sweet fragrance more on the candy/Tahitian vanilla than coffee, I did smell the coffee on the first place and it reminded me of Italy, at the gellateria the sweet smell of pastry mixed with the coffee, but then the coffee disappears and let the entire place to a round tonka/vanilla smell...

Rose-Oud with coffee candy
This isn't intense cafe . . . this is coffee candy. There is something sweet and syrupy with a bit of coffee darkness. I definitely get amber, musk, vanilla, and oud. I'm also getting a carmel and chocolate. As it settles the rose comes out. It's a tea rose smell both powdery and lifelike but on me the syrup is always center stage for the first few hours. The drydown -- if you can call a scent as strong as the opening that lasts for hours and hours a drydown -- is pure rose and oud. The longevity is impressive. This may not be what you were imagining when you saw the name, but it's quite good.

I joined Scentbird because I love my body fragrances and I?m offered so many choices. Don?t ever pigeon hole me with a type. I wasn?t sure at first Scent, but WOW. I was off put, thinking I smell SOAP. Sister, was I wrong. So warm but not too warm for everyday wear. Not overpowering but there. I didn?t smell myself constantly but during the day I enjoyed a whiff. I did refresh before happpy hour and received several complements.

This perfume smells almost identical to Elizabeth & James Bourbon. Both are spicy with noticeable amber and a hint of woodsy. This one just has a way better throw and staying power. I worked a busy 7 hour shift and I could still smell it when I got home. Love it.

Too much
I wanted to love this scent and all signs pointed to me loving it, but it's just too strong. I love super spicy, often unisex scents but after 5 minutes with this one I wanted to wash it off. It smells very cloyingly sweet. Unfortunately my jacket is permanently marked after the one time I sampled it! I also don't get the coffee notes in this at all..

Unique-Refined-Gourmand
This is very rich and unique -very gourmand but floral, on the sweet side. It really lasts a long time on me, which I like. The dry down is very nice- a complex refined vanilla amber musky candied rose. It has a strong silage. I really like it but have learned to use only one spritz of it since people do notice this one. I enjoy when compliments come but also wonder if others are overpowered by the scent. I don?t want to be that person who people say they have a headache from the perfume I?m wearing. It?s the empath in me. (For example, the gourmand fragrance Angel by T Mugler will give me a headache.) It?s not for every day but I do like it a lot and will use it sparingly at night and on the weekends.

Amazing scent, just WAY too strong
I love the scent- it?s exactly as described! Flowers and coffee. It?s beautiful! BUT.... wow is it STRONG. Overwhelmingly strong. The ADP is too much. I think it would be better as an ADT. I wanted to wear this and tried to just have on a tiny bit. I actually sprayed this on a tissue and gently swiped the tissue on my lower back (so the small amount of perfume on my skin was ?covered? by the top of my pants) and I STILL was utterly overwhelmed by perfume and had to wash it off. I can?t overstate how lovely and sophisticated this scent is, but if you prefer lighter, more subtle scents, this might be too strong. If strong perfume is your thing, this is def a scent you should try!

Smooth, warm vanilla coffee with a hint of roses
A floral gourmand. It's delicious. Warm and sweet vanilla coffee accented with roses. It's a deep, sweet warm scent. It smells so good, I can't stop smelling it. If you want a feminine version of coffee, this is for you. For fans of Stella by Stella McCartney, Black Opium by Yves Saint Laurent, Black Orchid by Tom Ford, and Rebelle by Rihanna. Also, I love that Scentbird started added the scent cards of the scents you choose =)

It's okay.
I'm not a fan of floraly perfumes, and thought this would be heavier on the non floral notes. The perfume smells mostly of roses. It gets better when it dries down to a warm vanilla amber scent, but the rose lingers enough to bother me. I bought this not knowing I disliked the rose note...But this is why we have this perfume service! To discover what we like and dont like... ?

Subtle, Sweet & Perfect for Anytime
I originally picked this perfume to try as I LOVE YSL BLACK OPIUM perfume, which has coffee notes too. I am so glad I chose Montale Intese Cafe as it smells amazing. It?s sweet yet sexy, with the main notes of coffee and chocolate dominating the perfume. You will not smell like a regular cup of coffee or chocolate bar - you?ll smell mysterious, comforting and sweet. It?s a perfectly blended perfume! I imagine it has the same aroma of a charming cafe in Italy or Paris ;)

Strange but good
If I could describe this in a kind of unusual way, I'd say it smells artificial...sweet....edible...wet...mysterious....foreboding in a weird way. It smells like something that you want to eat but know is inedible (someone else has got to have these feelings about inedible but delicious-smelling things...please...anyone...). It is more gourmand than floral, in my personal opinion, although I can still smell the rose and musk. I don't know about the coffee so much, I think it gets overpowered by the other notes but maybe the coffee is part of the edible-but-not vibe I get from this scent. Overall, it's weird, there's no way to describe it, you'll probably either love it or hate it. Best of luck! <3

I'm conflicted
I sprayed this on and hated it because it smelled like I just rubbed myself all over a rose bush and I am not a fan of rose scented perfumes. I did find however that it lasted all day and the scent changed to an almost fresh almost spicy scent...even though cocoa isn't one of the scents it almost had that rich scent that usually comes with chocolate scents. I couldn't stop smelling it but I'm not sure if I liked it or didn't like it. A coworker said it was "pleasant" but also couldn't decide if she enjoyed the scent.

Floral and peppery
Not what I was expecting at all. I expected sweet coffee and roses. I don?t smell any coffee or rose which is disappointing. It?s strong and harshly floral and has some odd pepper smell to it. And it?s giving me a headache.

An intriguing combination of comforting, playful, sexy and unique
This one makes people lean in for more. I believe it captures others? interest because it?s not one of the ubiquitous vanilla-caramel gourmands we all love and overwear so it?s like a scent puzzle they want to figure out. The notes are all familiar, but put together in an unusual way. It?s fascinating.. and addicting. A little goes a long way - throw is exceptional and it has incredible staying power. It?s become my new favorite and I can easily see it becoming one of my all-time favorites that I can wear for years to come. A big bottle purchase will be made for myself in addition to a gift bottle for a friend (who drools all over me whenever I wear it around her!).

Another win for me with Montale! This fragrance is definitely a head turner. I've worn it twice, once to work and once while I was out. Lasted all day/night. Just a little goes a long way. Anymore than a spritz or two could be overwhelming. If you like coffee and vanilla, you've found your signature smell here.

I do smell coffee and chocolate, but the rose is somewhat overwhelming. If the rose was toned down, and less synthetic, this could be a 5 star fragrance.

I can?t even describe how much I love this perfume! I don?t smell coffee beans or brewed coffee, but the combination of layers does remind me of coffee fruit. There is an effervescent top note that quickly fades and makes room for chocolate covered roses. A while after that, the dark fruity note arises without covering or taking away from the chocolate covered rose. It reminds me of a mature perfume version of those Brookside chocolate covered pomegranate candies. Several hours later, vanilla makes its way to the top and what a deliscious vanilla it is! Finally, a full 8-10 hours later, the musk mingles with all of the other scents, making this perfume an all day adventure that just keeps surprising and pleasing the senses. Swoon!!

Just very, very floral. It's heavy on the rose and light on everything else. Considering that it's called "intense cafe" it makes absolutely no sense to me why it smells like putting your face in a dozen roses. I know sometimes gourmand fragrances have floral or other notes to tone things down but this is a little over the top.

This smells like cheap vanilla lotion or slime. Have you ever played with homemade or store bought slime? There is a distinct smell. That's what I smell in this perfume. I like the vanilla note and the floral note but something else is just off about this. I'm sad that I wasted this month on something that is so unsatisfying:( I did give it two stars because I do like some of the notes I smell but that slime smell just ruins it for me. Other reviews talk about a play-doh smell and I don't smell that but I'm sure it's the same thing we are all smelling. Some sort of artificial plasticy smell that permeates through all stages of the perfume. I was really looking forward to an amazing gourmand fragrance. Oh well, I guess I'm just glad I didn't spend $100 on a bottle of this only to find that it smells like my daughter's homemade slime.

Love love love! This was my first scent that I received from Scentbird and normally I am very picky when it comes to smells but I decided to take a chance. I am so glad I did. Each of the notes are present but aren't too strong, or overpowering all while staying on all day. I definitely recommend this.

Okay.... So this perfume is absolutely lovely! I have no complaints, but I do have an observation to share. There, in my opinion, is nothing coffee/cafe/chocolate about this, which was surprisingly pleasant. I would describe this perfume as more fruity/floral than intense or cafe lol. I am a little confused by everyone else's reviews. Which almost makes me wonder if I received a different fragrance than all of the other reviewers. All in all, if you love softer/sweeter/fruity, slightly floral fragrances, go for this one!

I was very hesitant to buy a perfume before I "tried" it. But with Scentbird I threw caution to the wind. My choice of Intense Cafe made me a believer in the service. The scent is deep and throaty, yet not overpowering. As I sit at my desk, I catch a whiff of the scent and my thoughts pop to Parisian cafe. This perfume is a mini-vacation.

This is my absolute favorite perfume for many reasons !! I adore the scent first and foremost. To me the rose scent does NOT stand out first but the VANILLA and the COFFEE and the CARAMEL notes come straight through and it also smells a little like marshmallow on my skin according to many male admirers of this scent . Female coworkers also ask and also patients ask daily what I'm wearing and I tell them all . This is one fragrance that won't go unnoticed . I get complimented every single time that I wear it and that is not an over statement . I plan on purchasing the full size again in another week or so . I want to try the Chocolate version first to see if I like it as well . You absolutely cannot go wrong with Montale ??????

I would say I LIKE it, but don't love it. It's very heavy on a sort of "lipstick rose" scent that I find quite nostalgic. Not a powdery type of cosmetic rose exactly, but still has a very makeup bag sort of scent to it. Next I get a dry musk and sweet vanilla fighting equally for second place. The coffee, for me personally, is simply a base that keeps the whole thing somewhat balanced and grounded, but is by no means a true main player. It's really all about the rose to my nose. Longevity and silage are quite good, and I have to be careful about over-spraying or I end up with a screaming headache (which is true of all floral perfumes for me.) I would say that this is a good bet for people who love sweet, perfumey rose scents, but I wouldn't get your hopes up if you're looking for a gourmand.

2017"This scent captures all of the bad of cafe and none of the good! Overwhelming clove cigarette =check. Some kind of tea =check. There is none of the warmth and coffee scents that I was expecting from the description...,"a quote from Vera I don't know if it's because it say in the mailbox for a day and got warm or what. OMG! It smells at first spray like something gone rancid. Something rotten. Is it expired? Do not spray it but once and keep it at least 10 in. away! This was 2 hours ago and it's making me start to get nauseated. Like maybe a cheap coffee that was forgotten and has started to grow mold on the top. VERY rich. Rich in.... What? I don't know. I like the smell of coffee so, I was very disappointed?.

Very weird opening, fabulous dry down
Its a love hate kind of thing with this perfume i guess. It has ALOT of rose in it, and that mixed with a lot of mocha/coffee notes does not smell all that pleasant to me. It ends up smelling kind of like those cheap lip stick sets for little girls or something at first. Just really off putting. But then after the dry down, it smells like this pretty powdery mix with vanilla, and it's beautiful. Rose/coffee is definitely not a good combination to my nose in the opening, but others seem to love it. Where it shines for me is in the dry down-the gorgeousness of the end result is what makes dealing with the rough opening worth it. I'd recommend this as a fall/winter perfume if you do decide to try it although it may not be for everyone.

I received this perfume in the mail today and the moment I opened the package this delicious smell came from it. I just couldn't wait to try this perfume on. It starts off with a very cream scent to it, and once it has dried down I can smell more of the rose and what seems to be a hint of chocolate. I was hoping for a bit more coffee scent, but I am still very please with this fun casual perfume.

Very unique smell. I'm a huge fan of gourmand but this is different... Though the notes are similar to YSL Black Opium, they smell nothing alike. Unlike the price tag, this is a very casual scent. It can't be dressed up at all. The Coffee, vanilla and creamy amber with roses and floral. It tells its story, and its a good one. A fun wear if your into coffee gourmands. Very upbeat, carving a niche for itself. This is supposed to be unisex, I'd be very suspicious of a man wearing this. Highly considering making room for this on my shelf.

Count me among the folks that were surprised by the rose note being central to this perfume, but I love this scent. It's a pure, red rose scent with very well balanced richness of vanilla, amber, and coffee underneath. It's quite strong-- this is one of those scents that I spritz at myself from arm's length away, and yet still end up with a heavy dose. And it lasts like crazy! I've had people notice it in the late evening after I spritzed it on in the morning. It's definitely on the "date night" side-- it might be a little much for an office setting, for example. But it's one of my favorite scents I've gotten through scentbird.

This perfume is what I would describe as spicy but softens with time. It is nice for evening but a little heavy for daytime. It is very sexy and my husband loves it. The coffee tones are present right away but fade and give way to the undertones. This is reminiscent of a perfume I bought several years ago in Germany called Femme Fatale but less floral.

This is definitely an intense perfume, though I don't always find the coffee note to be that strong. The vanilla musk dry-down is my favorite part.

Love this scent! The vanilla is the strongest scent and I think it smells more like chocolate than coffee. Regardless, it smells delicious with a little bit of a floral undertone. I'll be buying a full size bottle.

I was dissappointed with this scent because I thought I'd love it based on reviews and description. It's too strong and not very pretty. I could wear it once in a while, but not one of the best I've tried.

My favorite scent so far. It is a winter scent. Stays on all day. Elegant and sophisticated scent. Love it.

I liked it when I first sprayed it on but after a few minutes I didn't care for the smell. The smell didn't last long which was fine with me. Time to move on and try one of the many other scents you offer.

I love it! Smells similar to Bond No 9's Perfumista Avenue! You don't smell coffee at first. More spice and leather. However it does have some sweetness as well.

I'm surprised at how much I love this scent! It doesn't last that long as it's not super strong (I use 2-3 sprays), but it does last longer than some other scents I've tried. I might be purchasing a full-sized bottle of this one!

This is an awesome scent. Long lasting! Roses open then give way to a warm, delicious vanilla, and I'll go as far as to say chocolate. The coffee is there but it's not as strong as expected. Smells a bit like fresh, warm brownies at times. If you like yummy, strong, long-lasting gourmands with a dash of floral give this one a go!

Intense Cafe is a very pleasant rose gourmand. The top notes will embrace you with a warm vanilla infused toffee-coffee scent which will be replaced by a softer delicate rose. Sillage and longevity are strong. This one is a crowd pleaser and it will be hard to find someone who will entirely dislike it. I wish it would have a little more edgy-ness to it such as Thierry's Angel to make it a truly distinct stand alone scent.

Very heavy gourmand scent. I received it in Sept. and being from Miami I found the fragrance too heavy for the climate. Perhaps i'll try it out in the cooler days and feel differently, but for me its a pass.

There's no mistaking the vanilla and coffee notes in this fragrance. It's a strong, gourmand scent likely more suitable for cooler weather. I received this in September and being from Miami, the fragrance is a bit too heavy for the climate. Perhaps i'll try it out on the 2 cold days a year we get here. But its a no for me.

I stepped out of my comfort zone putting this scent in my queue and boy did it pay off. I added it because of the supposed coffee scent but that is not what I smell in this perfume. I mostly get the sweet smell of roses and vanilla. I can spray it once on my skin and it lasts all day, but its not overpowering like some. I have only worn it twice now and I have gotten so many genuine compliments on it. Definitely my go to scent this fall!!

Having never smelled this prior to ordering, I took a leap of faith based on reviews. It's intoxicating, I can't stop smelling my wrists and is a lighter departure from my go to Velvet Orchid by Tom Ford. Even my daughter Bella loves this scent. We both wore it last night to the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them screening, and now it will always remind me of that movie! Smells and memory are very connected, this was a good choice!

I'm totally obsessed with this scent! It's sultry, sweet and sophisticated all at once. I'm not sure how "unisex" it really is though...it smells pretty feminine on me.

Yum, yum. Ironically I cannot smell the coffee. Oddly though, it has a tobacco(y) scent that is sweet but not over powering. Sophisticated, feminine (although unisex), and intoxicating. A definite reorder, I just hope I can make my current supply last til it arrives.

Intense, indeed. I kinda like this, but it's not a favorite. It is a bit too strong, a bit too artificial, and very boozy. To me this is sharp, almost metallic rose and sweet coffee liqueur that is so strong I can only spray once, and nowhere near my face. I do think it smells nice from a distance. Lasts all day on my skin, and many days on my hoodie.

My first scentbird scent that I didn't care for. It was pretty at first spray. Lots of bright rose. It dried down smelling of play dough :( Not for me.

Imagine you wash your face with your grandma's entire bottle of rosewater. And somewhere in the room is a bag of coffee grounds and a vanilla candle. That's Intense Cafe. It's basically a saccharine, fake rose scent.

Intensely acrid, nauseating top note that lingers for an insanely long time. This smells nothing at all like described and I will not be using it again after my first test. This perfume is truely awful, disgusting, and the stench is impossible to get rid of. It smells more like a rancid pile of rotting coffee cherries than the delicious warm smell of brewing coffee that one would like

Love the smell of this fragrance, once it dries down a little bit. In the beginning it does have a subtle synthetic quality. After wearing it for about an hour, the musky vanilla comes out. I can also smell a hint of coffee, mocha coming through. Definitely a fall/winter scent, good for a date night.

I smell chocolate more than coffee, though it's not listed as a note. The rose comes out a bit sharp to me, but every rose heavy fragrance does - I guess I just don't like rose very much! That said, it's still a lovely fragrance. Similar to Black Opium, so if you like that you'll probably like this. To me, it's a bit heavy for an everyday fragrance, but it makes a great evening scent. Would probably also be great (in moderation) when it gets really cold outside.

I was so looking forward to trying this perfume only to be disappointed. I don't smell coffee at all. I do smell a hint of chocolate. There's something "sharp" about this scent, I'm guessing it's the musk, that is off-putting to me. I do have to reapply this several times throughout the day as it doesn't last very long on me or my clothing.

Love this scent. It does dry down to a musky vanilla type smell. Unable to smell it later in the day but when I take my shirt off at night I can smell it. Smells like a mixture of Roses coffee and chocolate/vanilla. Nice! :)

Beautiful Fragrance. Only need about two sprays and scent lasts all day long! Could potentially be too musky or Vanilla smelling for most however I am In LOVE! Recommend as a winter or evening scent , or all day scent for women over 50. I am 24 so a little much for my afternoon wear, but also great as a home air freshener in case you do not like it as a perfume! Worth a Try, 5 Stars!

This scent wasn't quite "me" but it was still a wonderful smell that I get compliments on all the time! The most prominent scent with this perfume is the powdery scent followed by the slightest hint of coffee and a tinge of added sweetness. I've never been a fan of powder based scents and I usually layer my perfumes which is another reason it wasn't quite me. The scent is strong and will overpower any scent you try to add to it, but it lasts forever!

Not 100% in love with this smell. It doesn't smell bad, but it's not as flirty as I had hoped. It has more of a chocolate scent to it, which is not my favorite smell.
