    Coffee peppers chili flavors blend with hints of balsamic and cinnamon. It’s more of an oily texture coffee peppers and doses of chilies. Spicy coffee will be the fair term.
    Edit (31st Jan 2018) The second time i test this, i got a rice note within the coffee balsamic, pepper blend making the blend smells kind of grainy! It is quite weird and spicier than i thought,

    Instead of trying to identify notes, I’ll simply say that this is an incredible “scent memory” triggering fragrance; for me, it absolutely defines a happy, warm, old homey-ness with tea.
    Basically a wonderful tea in an old home. Extremely cozy.
    I did wish it was a completely natural scent per other parts of her line, but I accept that we’re close to that with this fragrance.
    Agreed with another comment, the first five minutes or so is something that needs to be tolerated to get to the good stuff.
    Then it continues to develop over time, mostly fairly linear, but the next day on clothes is again a tad different but just as equally enjoyable without question.
    Really, it barely changed the next day, and that’s a good thing. If anything it’s just a slightly different tangent on the same worthwhile path.
    No headache or nausea with this one, which I’m prone to with a substantial number of fragrances.
    I don’t know if I’d wear this as a male, but I very well may. I absolutely DO want to have this on hand as a room scent in some form, planning on buying it this year.
    Welcoming, the very definition of cozy, warm and happy. Wonderful fragrance.

    This is so hot and spicy on me–just what I need on this cold, raw winter’s day.

    There is coffee in here, but it is most prominent in the first hour, then fades into the warm blend. If you want a ton of coffee, layer this with DSH Coffee Absolu.
    I’ve worn samples of this before and never noticed that this is sooooo much like Youth Dew or Cinnabar. I have a fresh bottle now and all I kept thinking as the warmth drifted up is that it is Youth Dew. I’ll have to dig mine out and do a side-by-side comparison to see if memory is correct.
    I mean, clearly my nose deceives me because there’s not a note of patchouli here. It must be the balsam, vanilla, cinnamon, rose combo.
    Not getting pepper. Not getting gourmand.
    Quality stuff. 100% discernible as a niche house. You can see the quality of the liquid when it drips from the bottle. Not like typical commercial molecules.
    I’m probably not popular for this, but I think fragrances like these are best worn at home. When I get a bit of sillage of something like this, I unfortunately jump in my mind to “old lady,” especially if it’s at the shopping mall in the middle of the day. Night time, romantic, studious.

    Cafe Noir is warm and full of spices and amber, with a bare hint of coffee.
    This is a wonderful dark spicy scent that isn’t over-sweet. It isn’t redolent of spice cake, or cinnamon buns, but the earthy spices themselves. The opening is boozy, maybe rum or bourbon, then the spices settle in for a warm complex finish. At the drydown, I even get hints of leather wafting through.

    Well the way I would rate the notes would be:
    1. Cinnamon 2. Pepper/Pimento 3. Benzoin 4. Coffee 5. Vanilla 6. Tolu
    This to me is all about a nice hot latte with a heavy sprinkling of cinnamon on top of the foam while you sit quietly eating a warm cinnamon bun. This is gorgeous, warm and creamy but really for me the cinnamon is what takes center stage. A beautiful addition for fall and winter. This is just the perfect amount of spice without becoming a total spice bomb. I agree with the others, I don’t smell the flowers but I am sure they are helping the spices to stay grounded and not get too carried away!!!
    For a real caffeine kick I will stick with Ava Luxe’s Cafe Noir.

    Straight up, I get an unexpected blast of alcohol, specifically brandy, followed by the strong cinnamon that puts me immediately into a Christmas state of mind. Soon this settles and then the other notes mingle to create a comfort, feel-good scent. I don’t get strong coffee here, but it IS gourmand. It is more coffee bun dusted with cinnamon and I agree with Tigerlillian about the Turkish delight on the side. In a way, this is also reminiscent of a BPAL in that the scent is so evocative and strong, you could be in the moment in that coffee shop…. with that bun.

    Cafe Noir is exactly that–a deeply aromatic, rich elixir that gives you a caffeine kick merely by absorbing it through your skin.
    The opening is piquant and dark and takes some time to diffuse, which is no surprise considering the viscosity if this natural blend.
    The flowers are not overt but deliver a roundness and subtle sweetness in combination with the vanilla.
    Labdanum, benzoin and tolu balsam give an exotic, ambery richness and a long lasting layered complexity.
    Incredibly indulgent and a well composed perfume which I think is suitable for both men and women. It makes me long for a cup of Turkish coffee with a piece of lokum on the side. I also find this a great natural alternative to Opium.
