Très délicieux, ooh la la! Imagine a sidewalk cafe whose signature pick-me-up is a chilly concoction which will cool you down and perk your tastebuds up with a sweet reviving scoop, but be careful...you might get a hungry lick. Six types of coffee oil and black vanilla are made ice-creamy with cake-like vanilla and dairy accords plus an chilly hint of peppermint...ahhh rafraîchissant!

Coffee ice cream? Do you mean my favorite thing in the world (besides Trevor)? :wub:

I'm totally on board with this concept! :D

 

I love the way this smells in the vial, like, I would actually eat this (please no one actually eat this) it is so yummy. On my skin it's way more coffee-like, like fresh-brewed coffee with a bit of cream. And I like that too, but I hope with aging this becomes more ice-creamy on me. I don't really get the mint, but it's only meant to give it a "cold" vibe anyway.

I had the same exact experience with this one. In the vial, I smelled the most delicious coffee ice cream yumminess. When I wore it, it was mostly coffee with some cream that hung right on the edge of a bitterness that I wasn't too sure about. It softened after awhile though and still smelled very good. I couldn't detect the mint but I can see now (after reading Luna's review) that it was making it colder and I did get that. I just didn't connect it at the time. I am also hoping that with age this becomes more like it smells in the vial. (I'm guessing that it will!)

I had the same experience with this--the vanilla and cream retreat quite a bit, leaving the result to be coffee with cream. I get the cool vibe from the mint as well, which is a nice touch.

In the vile there's a creaminess that I'm not getting on the skin. It's a delicious dark, rich coffee with a hint of mint. I wasn't sure I'd go for mint and coffee, but I do so love the coffees at LP. It is NOT mint coffee, which is great! I'm not getting the creamy coffee in the vial, but the fragrance I AM getting is pure wonderful. FB unsniffed has been justified :D

 

ETA: It's a couple/few hours later and I get this awesome something wafting in the air - and it's ME. The creamy deliciousness in the vial is in full swing and this is a sugar, vanilla, buttery cream delight....Oh. My. Yum!!!

I LOVE the exceptional bitterness of the coffee in this. Anyone who likes 80%+ cacao chocolate MUST try this. It definitely isn't a cozy curl up by the fire winter type hot coffee drink ... more than anything it makes me think of espresso granita. ETA I just noticed this has mint - on me it didn't show up as itself, but must have been contributing to the chilly vibe. Will enjoy looking for it next time!

Why are more people NOT raving about this one? :lol: Particularly my coffee lovers out there?

 

Oh Heavens! The first punch of strong bitter coffee followed by a luxurious dry down of sweetened, creamy goodness! There is a place in a town near by me that sell an Espresso milkshake - made with a double shot of espresso! It takes FOREVER to make because they make the espresso for each one as it's ordered, but it is SOOOOOO worth the wait! THIS reminds me of that.

 

Roll in it like catnip! :Love09751::bday1029::kiss43::girlHeart-5: :abfx: :in-love:

 

ETA: Forgot to mention...Now that the bottle has sat for a while after shipping, it is just as creamy and delicious first on as it is in the bottle. Those who have it MUST re-test for creamy goodness and report back so I know it's not just me! :D

Upon application of Glace au Cafe and hello coffee! Upon drydown is when the scolding strong coffee becomes a creamy latte. I enjoy that hint of peppermint, it just adds something special to this coffee scent

I tried this yesterday.  This is my first trial of a coffee scent - and I love it.  It is beautiful and creamy in the vial.  Upon application it is dark and seductive with a little bitter bite.  I smelled yummy.  The scent dries down into a rich creaminess.  This is beautiful ...
