Just wow !!!
I had already written in another commentary that I am a Montale fan...and one of the reasons is Intense Cafe!

This fragrance is really very, very well done by Montale! For a Montale, it is even suitable for the masses! It is not often the case with this label... :)

But why do I love this scent anyway...? I'm OWNLY not a fan of scents you can smell all over the street, that maybe everybody likes because they smell so boringly good...you know what I mean? The best example is La vie est belle.......it does NOT work! Please donŽt be angry but what is this boring smell without character....okey i digress...
Back to Intense Cafe:
Intense Cafe is a romantic, seductive café fragrance that is sweet but in an elegant romantic way... he knows his value and knows that he is different from everyone else because of the cafe...he is a bit cocky because of it! But in a very seductive way that looks sexy and not unapproachable ;)

Intense Cafe can be worn at any time of the year in my opinion, but I think it fits best for autumn and winter! :)

So if you want to try a Montale, you might start with this ;)

Greetings
Your Montale fan!

Coffee, an absolute must have
Coffee, one thing that I absolutely love. Whether cappuccino, latte macchiato, espresso or a classic cup of coffee. With me, the drink may be missing neither in the morning, nor in the evening. That is exactly why I am an absolute fan of this perfume. It smells rosy sweet and at the same time aromatic of coffee beans. Immediately after spraying it on, it smells very intense, but after a few minutes you can distinguish the sweetness and the aromatic and smell it out very well. Normally I would say that you would wear the scent always and everywhere, I would drink coffee always and everywhere. But because the scent is so intense, I like it in the evening to go out. Everyone smells it and thinks, what is this woman wearing for a wonderful fragrance. Personally, I have already received many compliments for the fragrance, whether from friends or strangers. An absolute must have in every perfume collection of every coffee lover. I would love to wear this fragrance all day, make myself a delicious macchiato with my milk frother and espresso maker, while fresh roses from my lover stand next to me. All in a basic romantic mood on a cold fall day, laying in bed with a rose scented candle after making coffee, covering up with a thick cozy blanket and reading a book. Best of all, of course, "the cafe at the edge of the world". Simply a dream, I am absolutely thrilled

Coffee break
Wow. Intense Café is a little experience. In times like these, when visiting a café seems impossible, it briefly gives you back that great feeling of meeting a friend for coffee.

It starts with a delicious, juicy rose. Immediately the coffee comes in, an insanely TOLE note, not latte or anything like that, but more like opening a packet of fresh coffee and sniffing it. Really super gourmandig!
The coffee is only briefly noticeable in the top note, which is totally okay with me. I think, he would accompany me all day, he would be me in the long run possibly boring and not have this great kick, as at the beginning.

Later, the fragrance becomes sweeter and more vanilla. The rose is constantly there and fits wonderfully into this delicious composition!

I can really recommend Intense Café. He gives me the feeling to bite (or here rather to drink up) to smell and holds the G A N Z E N day, is with me even after the shower sometimes still noticeable. ;-)

Let's hope that we can soon wear this fragrance again to drink coffee with friends.

A journey - with an unsuitable name
So the scent is not what I expected. I expected a real coffee smell, like the name says Instead, I don't get a coffee scent, but rather a café experience, i.e. a very extensive and complex scent that changes greatly over time on my skin and undergoes a history or a journey.
At the very beginning I feel the coffee, it is present and sweet (actually exactly the way I do NOT want to drink my coffee). After only a few minutes the coffee, in my opinion, has already gone and the sweetness remains, which also brings roses into play.
In connection with the café experience, you can compare it to drinking a sweet latte at the beginning and after the latte there is a certain sweetness in the air that could come from the cookies at the table. Furthermore, roses are present in the café and at the table.
The rose remains after the base, but it becomes SWEETER and more vanilla and also a bit fruity/berryy. At this point it seems to me that the coffee has now completely cleared off the table and I ordered a warm dry cake with berry filling. Still everything in the very cozy atmosphere of the café...
It's hard to describe... For me an absolute work of art, which you should test on the skin (not on the test strip) and which you have to give several chances, because it gets better every time you wear it...
Definitely more feminine than masculine, but absolutely unisex.
So: different than expected, but after testing the fragrance and wearing it several times, it will definitely be on my wish list, just the association of the cosiness I get with this fragrance because of the café atmosphere is enough for me to buy this perfume as a work of art in itself.
I would wear it to in autumn, cold spring and also in winter I think. It's not too loud. Not a party scent, but rather one that you relax with, one that you wear for yourself, but which will not "offend" other people. Really great thing!!

Fear of coffee
Hello dear ones,

i had Intense Café on my list for a very very long time. I drink coffee very much, but do I want to smell like that? I asked myself that for a very long time and therefore postponed the blind buy for a long time!

I became aware through Instagram on a store with me in Cologne, which actually carries Montale fragrances! So immediately there and sniffed the good piece ... I do not know to this day what was going on that day with me, but I have found the fragrance as very unpleasant and quickly crossed off my list again! Yes what can I say!!! He was not out of my head so again a few days later there and tested again! This time only came to me the coffee aroma! Uh no thanks, too much coffee! But had this fragrance + Sensual Instinct (also Montale) sprayed on the back of my hand!

I decided spontaneously for 2 other scents, was already on the way home by train, until I smelled both (about 30-40 minutes later) again!

And then what happened? I got off schnurrstraks and went around to exchange both fragrances (Dark purple as well as Crazy in love, also Montale) against the two on the back of my hand!

I can definitely advise everyone to test Montale fragrances 1. on the skin and 2. let them work real! The top note says nothing about the actual fragrance! I as a niche beginner have there probably just not yet the little hand! ;-)

I now come more specifically to the fragrance: what do I get with Montale intense Café? In the beginning definitely the full blast coffee! But the fragrance continues to evolve :-) the coffee remains consistent with me all the time, but becomes more delicate and it also comes out a wonderful rose (which I actually can not stand) but never becomes too much! No dry stale rose, but rather a rose syrup! The fragrance is in my opinion not too sweet and thus very much unisex, which I can not say of Sensual Instinct so! The is much more feminine for me! But of course everyone should wear what pleases!

I am in any case very much in love with intense Café and this will probably my autumn and winter fragrance!

Sillage and durability are also top! Sprayed on at noon, I could still guess him in the morning the next day :-)

Do not be afraid of the coffee, dare!

Like most of the brand's perfumes the opening is too strong and synthetic. The drydown is gourmand, it smells like a creamy coffee with rose

A typical wintertime scent where the intensity of coffee and the sweet and warm base are made gentler by a rose touch.Good sillage.
