Cafe Mallowmel - Solstice Scents

Cafe Mallowmel
Solstice Scents

Rich Coffee Flavored with Decadent Caramel & Sweet Marshmallow Cream

In the vial all I get is coffee - and once applied it's much the same, aside from a slightly sweet, vanilla-ish note poking through a little. I love the smell of coffee but it's such an overpoweringly strong smell that I much prefer it in a candle or a home fragrance than a perfume. When I wear it I just feel like I'm walking around with an open jar of Nescafe 43 Bean. The coffee does subside a bit as it dries down, and the creamy caramel/vanilla note is more apparent. The sillage is medium - as I said, anything that smells of coffee tends to be reasonably strong. It lasted a long time - still going strong after 6 hours. 


Day 63!


  1. I enjoy coffee scents, but I prefer them woody rather than foody. This does sound quite nice though!

    1. It is nice, but it's just not something I'd want to wear.

    1. I'd love it if it were a candle - I think it would make an awesome home fragrance.

  3. I'm with you on not being big on coffee perfume. I'm not incredibly opossed to it, but I'd need another strong note to balance it out. I don't know. I haven't found the "perfect" coffee perfume I guess!

    1. I like Haus of Gloi Vice because the chocolate balances the coffee nicely on me - though from memory, I don't think you're keen on that one either?
