Description

Montale?s Intense Café reminds us of an artisanal coffee house that never closes. Candied rose petals and rich, dark, Turkish coffee notes arrive in a rush, and blend with decadent, lush vanilla into a delightfully rich, rose-infused cafe latte.

Like it!
I really like this scent! Not to strong but just right. It?s a little more floral and I usually I really didn?t notice a coffee/cafe scent? don?t like floral scents but I did enjoy this scent!

Love This!
I will buy this full size! I've never received so many compliments on how I smell. It lasts FOREVER. If you don't like vanilla, don't get this because the lingering scent is very much vanilla (I love that scent)!

Lovvvvvve it!!
Love, love, love this scent! Intoxicating without overpowering. My fave gourmand scent yet. Only negative is that I wish it lasted longer...but I have no problem reapplying and honestly don?t think you can overdo it with this one.

Wasn?t exactly a favorite of mine. Smelled like straight vanilla and was quite overpowering. Even borderlined a vanilla car freshener

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.

This perfume took me by surprise. It?s amazing. Very unique scent, smells pretty much how I expected it too with the notes of coffee and roses. I am still trying to figure out if it works with my body chemistry, but even if I decide it doesn?t, I will be using it as a linen spray because it?s that yummy ?

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 love this scent! It is very different in a good way. It has a hint of coffee, vanilla and rose. I feel so sexy with it on. And it lasts. I could still smell it on my blouse when went to wash it days later. I get compliments everywhere I go.

This is my absolute favorite scent I've tried so far. I'm ordering another, it's the first one that I've used almost all of it. I think it's a very seductive, mature scent. I love it and highly recommend.

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!!

This had a strong rose smell and after its first applied was very soapy smelling. It wasn?t until way later after application that I could smell the ?cafe? part of it but it?s so subtle that I just couldn?t enjoy this perfume.

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.

I absolutely love this scent. It's the perfect blending of the coffee and vanilla with an undertone of sexuality. I'm going to invest in a bottle!

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 scent is exactly as described, Intense! It did not work with my pH at all. Not to say it wouldn't smell good on someone else. It was way too strong and really wasn't what I would normally pick for myself.

I love the scents of chocolate and of coffee! Together, even better. They're some of my favorite smells. I really love this scent. I definitely want to buy a full size of this scent. This will go in my fragrance rotation for sure. It also stayed on all day! I didn't have to refresh my fragrance at all.

I am In LOVE with this fragrance! I chose this fragrance on a whim and recommendation. The rose and floral tones in this fragrance are subdued softly with hints of chocolate and coffee, woody undertones. I get the sense of sexy yet masculine for those of us that love a Unisex fragrance.

The perfect valentine...roses and chocolate ! I know they say the undertones are coffee but that is not what I smell. It definitely has a hint of chocolate under the floral notes that lean to roses. Or maybe roses and coffee smell like chocolate. .....

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?.

I ???????????? This perfume it smells AMAZING to me! The bottle itself is expensive but one day I will buy me a bottle for myself. This is maybe like the second time I have had this perfume. And I highly recommend it too. I ever heard of the brand before? But I read the reviews and so far a lot of people have comment on this perfume Montale. I gave it a shot and it's a wonderful but spicy cinnamon smell to me. Love it. I give it ???????????????????? Up! Great Perfume!

I tried really hard to love this perfume, but I barely like it. It has ALOT of rose in it, and that mixed with the mocha/coffee note does not smell all that pleasant to me. It ends up smelling to me kind of like this cheap lip stick sets for little girls or something. The only way I can tolerate it is after the dry down. Then it smells pretty powdery with vanilla, and it's lovely. Rose/coffee is definitely not a good combination to my nose, but others seem to love it. I'd recommend this as a fall/winter perfume if you do decide to try it.
