Jim Morrison’s Leather Pants
It's your best friend's birthday, so you decide to combine the Bohemian gift you got her with something more classic. You stop in front of a well-stocked flower stand; it's a riot of colors and scents. Ask the clerk to make you a very fragrant bouquet of pink roses. You pay and, on your way home, you pass a coffee shop. The street hangs that intense and caramelized smell of freshly roasted and ground coffee, but not burnt; it is fruity, similar to a berry, chocolate, hazelnut. It blends with the fragrance of the bouquet you carry in your hands, giving you a sensation of delicate roses and coffee beans never experienced before. You let yourself be enveloped by this beautiful sensation as if it were your second skin, a light suede jacket. Plaisir Café is nothing more than a beautiful, intoxicating, but not overly aggressive scent, characterized by a freshly roasted and ground coffee, soft and not bitter, that will awaken your senses from the first moment you wear it. But let's see together how Plaisir Café evolves on me.

When I first apply Plaisir Café, I immediately feel the floral scent with a light fruity aroma as a base, which creates a relatively soft start. It smells of flowers, aromatic red wine, and a kind of sweaty suede, but just a touch of that. The blend of mesmerizing flowers is cheerful but not cloyingly flowery. Starting with a passably balanced aroma, I am fond of this sweet and flattering layer. The perfume contains little alcohol, and here it does not make you uncomfortable but instead makes it almost pleasant. These mildly fruity flowers are promising.

The opening gradually fades, slowly revealing the aromatic notes of coffee beans and slightly muted rose petals. These are delicate roses mixed with Jim Morrison's leather pants, a subdued worn suede, designed as he immortalized them in the late 1960s on the cover of "The Doors Live at the Hollywood Bowl". It sounds distasteful, but the result is truly remarkable for the nose and soul. They are mostly fresh and juicy rose petals. And the coffee is neither black nor filtered espresso; it is instead the sweet and delightful aroma of freshly roasted coffee in your grinder before baking, hot as a cup of melted chocolate to sip on cold winter days. A partially misleading name for this jus, since it is undeniably intense but not quite like espresso, at least not what we Italians love to drink, forceful and compact, steaming and full-bodied. Instead, it is a Middle Eastern-style coffee, finely ground and left to infuse in boiling water, patiently waiting for the powder to settle on the bottom of the container with a more discreet and measured result than the aroma that rises from the Neapolitan espresso cup. The intermediate stage lasts a long time.

Then, moving to my favorite territory, the fragrance gradually settles into the earth aspect of warm vanilla, amber, suede, and musk. However, in a way, it's not too opulent. The coffee turns into a milky coffee au lait, thanks to its exceptional dose of vanilla flavor. As the coffee eases, a vanilla-white musk emerges that softens the blend slightly with a hint of cream and sugar. Even against the final amber background, the coffee remains a rich, nutty presence. It is an earthy, deep, dark, but also sweet scent. Thick and creamy vanilla is the dominant note, even more so than amber, and its wonderfully rich lushness is found on a thin layer of delicate roses. Interestingly, I seem to hear oud, but it isn't. Instead, I believe it contains an incredibly outrageous amount of ISO E Super, which can be confused here with oud.

For me, Plaisir Café is genderless without being too floral. It is sexy but discreet. The notes sound good together and create a dark and decadent gourmand, but it has a very simple smell, so there isn't much more to say. If you want to smell like bold rose jam with a hint of sweet coffee, this is perfect. It is the perfume I needed in my vast collection. It is glorious, the perfect perfume. It lasts most of the day and has just enough sillage, making it ideal for wearing to work. Plaisir Café is a gourmand without being cloying and sexy without being clumsy; it makes me feel completely at ease, incredibly serene like I've found my place in the universe. The sweet and greasy taste of Plaisir Café gives me a feeling of great relaxation, especially in winter when it's cold; the aroma leaves me with so many emotions and sensations that are difficult to describe. It's a vibrant and bold coffee aroma that exudes a very distinctive charm of oriental vanilla fragrances. Both men and women can use this perfume well; its flowery appearance reminds me of Kenzo's Power, with that mysterious but unveiled flower. The scent is warm, making the fragrance unsuitable for hot summer weather. I find it perfect for late autumn and winter. Spray some perfume on your body, and you'll be ready for an evening date or to go to the fun parties that await you. I love it.
Overall, I liked Plaisir Café; it's a pretty rich and nuanced scent, resulting in blur and haze. The smell is sweet, delicious, and gourmand in nature, but it is much drier than you would expect thanks to the coffee powder. If you are expecting a scent of pure coffee, however, you may be disappointed. Still, it will surely delight those who love the enveloping sweetness of vanilla and the seduction of rose, in a beautiful and precious oriental and floral fragrance at ease on a romantic but perfect woman even for the dandy who loves to dare.

This review bases on a 100 ml. (3.4 fl. oz.) bottle I own since December 2020.

Gorgeous! Lots of coffee on me with perfect blend of rose and vanilla. I usually do not like sweet fragrances, yet this one isn't too sweet.
