Coffee gourmand
I love the smell of coffee, I just don't like drinking it. I've never liked it...

I've sniffed my way through countless coffee perfumes, always hoping to come across a fragrance that smells really delicious, like freshly ground or freshly brewed coffee. I didn't really find what I was looking for for a long time, although there were certainly one or two good scents among them.

And then I ordered café tonka blind because of the price. And what can I say? This is my idea of a coffee perfume. Gourmand, sweet, coffee-with-sugar fragrance with at most a slight hint of other notes. Here it's a light spiciness from saffron and pepper, but it's barely perceptible.

Immediately after spraying it on, I wasn't quite as enthusiastic, but after a little waiting time, this gourmand develops really deliciously on me. H+S is okay for the price. Not overwhelming, but quite acceptable.

Definitely deserves a place in my gourmand collection!

Colleagues check my clothes for coffee stains inconspicuously
It smells like I spill coffee with milk and sugar over my shirt - but without a stain. Since coffee makes me feel good, I think it's nice. On the skin coffee rafter, on clothes sweeter... BUT... definitely a post-spray candidate. Sillage in the same way as with real coffee stain

Washed.. Arabica. Blend. Roasted. Undermatures... drum roast... huh?
Recently we got a new fully automatic coffee machine for the social room. After 80,000 cups and a few years, the old machine had finally given up the spirit - not least thanks to a lack of care, everyone wants to drink, but wants to clean, care, pah, not with us, "always with me the water is all", "always with me the care wants", everyone knows, right? The smart salesman gave a short briefing and then let us take turns sniffing coffee beans in a free bag - all of them fell for Ohs and Ahs with enthusiastic "delicious, aromatic, great" shouts. I've always found that coffee smells better than it tastes. And while the salesman was talking shop with enthusiasm about acidity, strength, roasting, Libera, and see headline (yawn...I'm no Barrista after all), I digressed in thoughts to perfumes with coffee scent. Because I would like to have a coffee scent in my collection, but so far everybody was too sweet, too muckefuckig, too many flowers, but stop! …. Café Tonka, I've had a bottle for a long time, it was quite good, or not?

At home I searched in the vegetable compartment of the fridge for my bottling, I had almost forgotten the scent. And with 6 degrees in the morning a warm coffee smell comes just in time. So they'll hang up the next morning.

Café Tonka starts with finest coffee, aromatic and strong, pepper brizzelt a little in the nose. Nothing blooms here, only the finest mocha clouds surround me. After a short while, I am sweetened with tonka bean, stronger and with more sweetness than I remembered and loved. A shot of creamy cream in it would have pleased me better. But thanks to Parfumo I get along better with sweetness in fragrances and I find that this smell smells at least like coffee, of some coffee fragrances I could not say that. Sillage and shelf life are in the middle range, due to the sweetness I would recommend the cool autumn times to wear.

Mr. Pluto comes out of the bathroom drunk asleep, "it already smells of coffee in the hallway, has the machine overflowed? Well, the scent seems authentic. But I keep looking, there must be something like a cafe crema - unsweetened and perhaps with a dash of cognac or rum? Does anyone have any tips?
