coffee perfume

with my beloved italian acqua di parma "iris nobile" running low, i stopped into bond new york to pick up some "so new york." i'd heard so much about this espresso-chocolate scent that it lured me away from my favorite aedes just this once.

and it seems completely perfect for the winter. their "new haarlem" also contains a strong coffee base, and with its bergamot and vanilla notes would be a favorite of mine, except i do dislike patchouli.

coffee perfumes are all the rage right now, of course. i'm thinking of scents like j. malone's "black vetyver cafe;" dsh "cafe noir;" dragonfly blue's "mocha;" l'artisan parfumeur's "l'eau de navigateur;" torrente's "l'or de torrente;" comme des garcons "kyoto;" etc.
