Our Top 3 Picks:

#10 Mugler Pure Coffee


Not So Pure. But Great.

I’ll be straight with you…

The name of this scent is actually quite misleading. Why?

Well… with a name like Pure Coffee, you would be (understandably) expecting a dominant coffee scented cologne. But that’s not the case.

Let’s take a closer look…

(By the way, if you are familiar with the original Mugler A*Men… This is like a less sweet, toned down version …with an amped up roasted coffee accord).

Dark Roasted

When you first spray Pure Coffee, you’re greeted with strong bitter dark roasted coffee mixed with some earthy patchouli.

And to be honest, the initial opening is quite harsh. The good news… it quickly smooths into something MUCH more enjoyable.

Dark Chocolate

…As it starts to dry down, a hint of vanilla steps in and morphs with the coffee/patchouli to give a warm bittersweet powdery dark chocolate vibe.

Nice.

And, after about an hour, the coffee tones down and takes a backseat, joined with some woody notes.

So to be clear: if you’re looking for only a strong dominant coffee fragrance – you may be disappointed.

Casual

More suited for the 25-up crowd for cold weather (fall/winter) casual/nights-out use.

Pure Coffee is an EDT and projects about an arm’s length for 1 – 2.5 hours, then settles down to a skin-scent.

Needless to say… if you’re looking for a heavy hitter – this is not it. Lasting power is about 5 – 8 plus hours.

Pocket Flask

The bottle is designed to look like a gentleman’s pocket flask and is encased in rubber (makes it handy for travel). The bad news…

The rubber casing sometimes makes it awkward to operate the sprayer. (Crazy)

Bottom line:

A GREAT scent. But don’t just expect ONLY pure coffee. 🙂

#9 Comptoir Sud Pacifique Vanille Cafe


Sweet Creamy Vanilla Latte

No surprises here. You get exactly what the name suggests – a warm sweet vanilla latte.

But be careful…

Your significant other may want to drink (eat) you. 🙂

Now, in case you’re wondering… Comptoir Sud Pacifique are a French niche perfume house that are known for their affordable simplistic gourmand (edible smelling) type fragrances.

Anyway… This one is pretty straight forward, let’s take a look:

Delicious

As soon as you spray Vanille Cafe you’re greeted with a sweet creamy vanilla latte aroma. Nice.

As it dries down… the vanilla amps up and is joined with some woods in the background. And eventually, it ends up smelling a bit like a yummy coffee cake.

It’s a sweet, warm and comforting scent… But not overly sweet or immature smelling.

Now, to be clear…

This is a unisex scent that can be enjoyed by all ages. So if you’re looking for a super masculine type scent – you may want to skip this. 🙂

Cool Weather Use

More suited for cool weather use: fall/winter (cold spring nights). Casual, nights out, dates, hanging-out, etc…

Vanille Cafe is an EDT and projects politely (just under arm’s length) for about 1 hour… then softens up and sits close to the skin. Lasts around 4 – 8 plus hours.

Bottom line:

If you don’t want anything super complex and want to smell like a straight-up delicious sweet vanilla latte – I urge you to try this.

#8 Rochas Man


Sugary Sweet Creamy Vanilla Cappuccino

First things first:

This is deliciously sugary sweet. So if you don’t like sweet edible smelling type scents – this is (definitely) not for you. But if that’s your thing, read on… 🙂

Rochas Man starts off with a blast of burnt sugary sweetness mixed with fresh lavender and coffee sitting in the background.

Pinch of Fruity Raspberry

…As it dries down, the sweetness mellows out and the lavender takes a step back – allowing the coffee to shine through, joined with some warm vanilla and a pinch of fruity raspberry.

The result:

A warm, sweet, creamy vanilla-cappuccino vibe with a faint raspberry undertone. Delicious.

Youthful

Now, I should point something out… this is not a super masculine type cologne. In fact, despite the name – this is totally unisex. And is great for dates, nights out, casual, hanging-out, etc…

Can be worn by all ages – but has a youthful vibe (suggest under 45). And more suited for cool weather use: fall/winter. Do not rock this in the high summer heat – or you will choke yourself out. 🙂

Now, to be perfectly clear…

Intimate

This is an intimate scent that sits close to the skin (and draws people in). So needless to say… if you’re looking for a powerhouse—you will be disappointed.

Rochas Man is an EDT and projects politely (less than arm’s length) for up to 2 hours… then quickly fades to sit close to the skin (making it a great date scent). Lasts around 4 – 6 plus hours.

Bottom line:

If you enjoy sweet edible smelling scents—I urge you to try this.

#7 Mugler Pure Tonka


Pure Delicious

First off… don’t be misled by the name.

Now, understandably, with a name like “Pure Tonka,” you would be expecting a tonka dominated scent. Far from it. In fact, I’m going to make this as easy as I can for you…

Picture this:

Warm Sweet Caramelized Coffee

A warm sweet caramelized coffee (latte), lightly dusted with dark chocolate and cinnamon… With a freshly baked cookie on the side.

In a nutshell: that’s Mugler’s Pure Tonka. (No kidding).

…And it smells DELICIOUS. Needless to say, this rakes in the compliments. But be careful… Coffee lovers may want to drink you. 😍

Here’s the full scoop…

Sweet Dark Roasted

Pure Tonka opens up with a blast of fresh minty lavender mixed with sweet dark roasted coffee and tonka.

As it dries down… the lavender fades into the coffee and tonka. Warm vanilla and powdery chocolate creep in and fuse with the scent.

And it gets darker, warmer, sweeter and more inviting.

What’s more… a hint of earthy patchouli lies buried underneath and stops the scent from becoming overly sweet. Good stuff!

To be clear…

Cuts Through The Cold

This is strictly a cold weather scent: fall/winter. Trust me – if you rock this in the high summer heat… you will regret it. 🙂

Pure Tonka is unisex and is great for casual use, bars, parties, nights-out, clubbing, dates etc… Maybe a bit too sweet for the office/work.

And the good news…

Performs Like a Champ

Pure Tonka is an EDT and projects nicely (about arm’s length) for about 2 – 4 hours – leaving a delicious scent trail…

Then becomes more subtle and sits closer to the skin. Lasts around 6 – 10 plus hours. Great.

Now, a quick word of caution…

Be careful with the sprayer. This is a “less-is-more” type scent. 1 – 2 sprays MAX …and you’re set.

Pocket Flask

The bottle is pretty cool… It’s designed to look like a gentleman’s pocket flask and is encased in rubber… exposing a glass star at the front (so you can see the juice inside).

The bad news…

This rubber casing sometimes makes it awkward to use the sprayer. Crazy.

Bottom line: If you love sweet delicious edible-smelling scents… I urge you to try this.

#6 Montale Ristretto Intense Cafe


Sweet Warm Caramel Coffee & Rose

Now first off… this isn’t for everyone. Why?

This fragrance is unisex and contains a rose note. So if you don’t like rose, you may want to skip this one. With that said, I should point something out…

Ristretto Intense Cafe is a new version of Montale’s Intense Cafe – which made it onto our favorite rose fragrances list. And to be honest, they smell very similar… But with a major difference…

In a nutshell:

Ristretto Intense Cafe vs Intense Cafe

Ristretto Intense Cafe has an amped-up coffee note with a toned-down rose note. On the other hand… Intense Cafe has an amped-up rose note with a toned-down subtle coffee note. So please be careful while choosing. Let’s take a closer look…

(In case you don’t know… Montale are a French luxury perfume house known for their powerful long-lasting fragrances)

Warm Sweet Caramel-Vanilla Latte

Ristretto Intense Cafe opens up with a blast of sweet black coffee with rose buried underneath.

As it dries down, the rose creeps in joined with some warm vanilla, white musk and caramel… and they all morph with the coffee. The result?

It smells like a nice warm sweet caramel-vanilla latte with a rosy undertone.

Nice. 😍

Cold Weather

This is unisex and more suited for the mature 25-up crowd. And strictly for cold weather use: fall/winter and cold spring nights (too sweet and heavy for the summer).

Casual, semi-casual, nights out, romantic occasions, dates…

Ristretto Intense Cafe comes in a Extrait de Parfum concentration (which simply means it’s more potent than an EDT/EDP).

So needless to say…

A Little Goes a Long Way

Don’t go crazy with the sprayer.  Less-is-more with this one… 1 – 2 sprays MAX …and you’re set.

It projects about an arm’s length (leaving a nice scent trail) for up to 3 hours… then dials back in and sits closer to the skin. Lasts about 6 – 10 plus hours.

Great.

Side note: Montale use super lightweight aluminium bottles, and when they are new they feel like they’re not full.

Don’t worry… this is normal: simply because the bottle is so light and is also larger than what is needed (this can cause confusion).

Bottom Line:

If you love coffee… and you love rose… I urge you to try this.

#5 Halloween Man X


Strange Name. Great Affordable Coffee Based Cologne.

I can almost hear you thinking…

Okay the name is crazy, right? 🙂 But this is actually good stuff! Seriously.

Now, I’ll be straight with you… The opening is not the greatest (to my nose). But here’s the thing… it transforms into something MUCH more enjoyable. Let’s take a closer look…

When you first spray this you’re greeted with a typical bubble-gum tonka sweetness vibe – with coffee buried far underneath. But stay with me… 🙂

Roasted Coffee Beans, Leather & Whiskey

…As it dries down, the sweetness mellows out… And is slowly replaced with a nice blend of freshly roasted coffee beans, leather and a splash of whiskey…with whispers of cinnamon and cardamom.

Nice.

It’s dark, warm, sweet and inviting.

And can be worn by all ages (although the initial opening has a youthful vibe) and more suited for cold weather wear: fall, winter and cool spring nights.

Casual use, hanging-out, work, nights out, bars, dates…

Bang For Your Buck

Halloween Man X doesn’t scream out for attention. This is an EDT and projects about arm’s length for up to 2 hours… then sits closer to the skin. Lasts about 6 – 8 plus hours.

So if you’re looking for a powerhouse type scent, this is not it.

The best part…

This is SUPER affordable and is a great bang-for-your-buck!

Can you say jackpot? 🙂

#4 Kilian Intoxicated


Spicy-Sweet Turkish Coffee

Intoxicated is just like it sounds: Intoxicating. 🙂

Now, in case you don’t know…

Luxury

Kilian are a French luxury fragrance house based in Paris, created by Kilian Hennessy – the grandson of the founder of the Hennessy cognac company.

Intoxicated is part of their (aptly named) ‘Addictive State of Mind’ collection. And interestingly, was inspired by a trip that Kilian took to Istanbul, Turkey…

…Where every morning, he would enjoy the ritual of making Turkish coffee with cardamom. So much so, that when he returned to Paris – he teamed up with award winning perfumer Calice Becker, to recreate the experience in a fragrance.

Did they succeed?  Let’s find out…

Spicy Cardamom

Intoxicated opens with a blast of spicy cardamom mixed with Turkish coffee and a nice caramelized sweetness buried underneath.

As it settles, a hint of warm vanilla and ground nutmeg creep in, with a pinch of cinnamon… and they all fuse together to give it a delicious dark chocolaty vibe.

It’s rich, warm, spicy, slightly sweet… and addictive. HUGE compliment getter.

The beautiful part…

This is unisex so you can share it with your significant other (great)…and suitable for all ages. More suited for the sharply dressed crowd for fall/winter night time use: dates, nights out, bars, clubs, smart casual use, dinners, etc…

Even better…

Precious

Intoxicated comes presented in a gorgeous black lacquered bottle that has been engraved on each side (represents Achilles’ shield). Also, the front metal plate has the name of the scent engraved by hand. It looks, feels and smells premium.

Achilles’ Shield engraving on side of bottle.

Pretty awesome, right?

But now for the bad news…

As you probably guessed… it also comes with a price tag to match. If you want Kilian luxury – you’re going to have to pay for it (understandable).

Nice Scent Bubble

Intoxicated is an EDP and projects nicely (about arm’s length) for up to 3 hours – creating a nice scent bubble around you.

It then softens up and sits closer to the skin, giving off gentle wafts. Lasts around 6 – 10 plus hours.

Good stuff! 🙂

#3 Ralph Lauren Polo Red Extreme


Dark Sweet Orangey-Chocolate Coffee

This is a GREAT one for nights out, clubbing, etc…

Let’s break it down:

When you first spray Polo Red Extreme you’re greeted with a sweet fruity blood orange mixed with dark roasted coffee.

As it settles… the blood orange takes a step back and the coffee starts to shine through with some dark woods buried underneath.

The result?

Dark, Sweet, Warm & Inviting

A dark sweet chocolatey-coffee vibe with a slight fruity orange undertone.

It’s smooth, warm and inviting. …And (understandably) garners some nice compliments.

Good Stuff!

More suited for the 20-up crowd – for night time use in the cool weather: fall/winter (cold spring nights). Avoid the high summer heat (speaking of… to discover our favorite summer scents go here).

Nights Out, Bars, Clubbing, Dates…

Perfect for nights out, bars, hanging-out, casual, parties, clubbing, dates …you get the idea. 🙂

Now, I should point something out:

Don’t let the name of the scent mislead you… There is nothing “extreme” about it. This is NOT one of those room-filler powerhouse type scents. It’s smooth and inviting.

Polo Red Extreme comes in a Parfum concentration, which just means it’s more concentrated than a typical EDT (Eau de Toilette).

It projects nicely (just under arm’s length) for up to the first 2 hours… then becomes more subtle and draws people in. Lasts about 5 – 8 plus hours.

Great. 🙂

#2 Hugo Boss The Scent Private Accord


A Fruity Chocolate Coffee Scent

This is a hidden gem.🙂

Hugo Boss commissioned the highly talented perfumer Bruno Jovanovic to create this beauty… And he didn’t disappoint. Let’s take a look…

Chocolate

The Scent Private Accord opens up with a gorgeous dark sweet blend of chocolate (cacao) and coffee with a pinch of fresh ginger. Nice.

As it dries down… the cacao mellows out and an exotic fruity accord creeps in and morphs with the chocolate and coffee… joined with a hint of vanilla and pepper with some woods buried underneath.

The result?

Dark, Warm & Inviting

A semi-sweet fruity chocolatey coffee scent with spicy woody undertones.

It’s dark, warm and inviting… In a word: delicious. 😍

More suited for the mature sharply dressed 20-up crowd… for use in cool weather: fall/winter (cold spring nights).

Dressed Up, Dressed Down

Can be worn dressed-up, dressed-down, work/office, nights out, parties, bars, clubs, dates, etc…

Now, to be clear:

The Scent Private Accord doesn’t scream out for attention. If you’re looking for a powerhouse, this is NOT it.

It projects nicely (just under arm’s length) for up to the first 2 hours… then becomes more subtle and sits politely close to the skin—luring people in. 🙂 Lasts about 5 – 8 plus hours.

Bottom line:

If you love chocolate and coffee, don’t sleep on this.

#1 Salvatore Ferragamo Uomo Signature


Hidden Gem

This one is under the radar. 🙂 Now, in case you don’t know…

Uomo Signature was created by award winning perfumer Alberto Morillas. This is the same man who created some of the best-selling colognes, ever: Armani Aqcua di Gio, Calvin Klein CK One, Versace Dylan Blue, Givenchy Pi, Bvlgari Man in Black—the list goes on and on and on…

But the BIG question is…

Did he deliver the goods here? The answer seems to be “YES!” 🙂 Let’s take a look…

Warm Sweet-Spicy Coffee & Soft Leather

When you first spray Uomo Signature, you’re greeted with a blast of masculine sweet spicy orange citrus.

As it settles… a nice sweet blend of coffee, tonka bean and soft leather creep in… joined with some warm spices (cinnamon & cardamom). The end result?

A nice warm sweet-spicy (slightly chocolatey) coffee vibe… with a hint of soft leather.

Nice.

It’s dark, sweet (but not overly sweet), warm and inviting. And (understandably) gets a LOT of positive attention – as long as you don’t go crazy with the sprayer 🙂 (more on that shortly).

Perfect for Nights Out, Dates…

More suited for the mature 20-up sharply dressed crowd for night time use in cool weather: fall/winter (cold spring nights).

Perfect for nights out, bars, clubbing, dates, dinners, smart-casual use, etc… If you use it for the office/work – I recommend you just spray lightly.

Nice Scent Trail

Uomo Signature is an Eau De Parfum concentration (stronger than an EDT) and jumps off the skin (well beyond arm’s length) – for up to the first 2 hours… Leaving a nice scent trail.

…It then becomes more subtle – creating a nice scent bubble around you, that eventually sits closer to the skin. Lasts around 6 – 8 plus hours. Great. Needless to say…

Be careful not to over-spray; Less-is-more. 1 – 2 sprays MAX …and you’re good to go.

The best part?

You can discover this online for a GREAT affordable price. Can you say jackpot? 🙂
