Café V

Brand: Olympic Orchids

Scent Description: A spicy fragrance inspired by one of Seattle’s many cozy neighborhood cafes with its dark décor, warm fireplace, leather chairs, and espresso bar. It’s not quite gourmand, and not quite a fragrance of place, but something in between with the expected coffee, chai, biscotti and pastries, against a background of old woods and traces of all of the rain-drenched artists and actors who have over the years congregated in this little café in Seattle’s Capitol Hill. Released 2013. Notes: espresso-roast coffee, dark cacao, vanilla, cream, spicy chai, cardamom, leather, and well-worn wood.

  1. Yeah, this smells nothing like the notes really, it’s a dark and woody and leathery. I like it but definitely doesn’t put me in mind of ‘coffee, cacao, vanilla, cream, and spicy chai’.

  2. Bitter wood and equally bitter coffee, with maybe a hint of bitter leather? This one is bitter bitter bitter all the way through.
