My opinion as a non-coffee drinker/lover
I got the fragrance from a dear perfumer, because I had through Whispers in the Library and By the Fireplace desire for the other Replica fragrances.
Since I was excited by the two fragrances because they are so special and interesting, I naturally had slight expectations for the other fragrances. At least to their course, since I found the course of the two above-mentioned fragrances very intriguing.
In advance, I must mention briefly that I am not a coffee drinker and find the smell of coffee in the long run or depending on the mood exhausting.
But now to the fragrance:
The first time spray on, aroused a certain anticipation and curiosity in me, because the Replicas, which I was allowed to smell so far wonderful and special have changed.
And so did the Coffee Break, because I would be downright slain by a cloud of coffee on my skin. But not a black coffee, somehow a nice creamy coffee with milk foam, like my mother and my best friend like to drink.
I'm fascinated by the smell in the top note, because it really smells like a nice latte and at the same time I also thought to myself "Nah, doesn't have to be", because I asked myself the question whether I myself would like to smell so extremely like coffee.
But I put the question back and wanted to wait for the further course of the fragrance.
As soon as the coffee note has slowly (or just a little faster for me) faded away, the lavender comes through.
But it's somehow not the fresh lavender that you rub lightly between your fingers directly on the bush...
He is somehow a little more synthetic, in a few statements I could discover shower gel comparisons and I must say that he is not directly comparable to it, but perhaps because of the synthetic something could be classified in this direction.
However, the lavender still remains creamy on my skin throughout due to the slight coffee/milk note in the background.
The sillage and durability is rather naja, as the fragrance after the first strong coffee note immediately after spraying on a little flattens. As a wearer of the fragrance you pull so no extreme fragrance clouds with you, which is why the fragrance would be a pleasant fragrance for everyday use in my opinion.
Provided, of course, you like coffee. ?
My question whether I would like to smell so, I answered me despite the only still light coffee smell with no, because the fragrance just could not convince me personally as other fragrances do
