Marsellus Wallace's fragrance
This is a wild niche coffee fragrance. I think this how Marsellus Wallace must have smelled like from the accumulation of scents througout his day starting at the Inglewood strip club with the booze, the leather and tobacco filling the place, the coffee and doughnuts he brought; Butch hitting him with the car being the catalyst for this explosion of smells fueled by adrenaline and then the chase which eventually led to Maynard's pawn shop with its dungeon's leathery set-up.

This fragrance is not recommended for anyone who is looking for the easiness of wear and crowd-pleasing qualities of amboxan-heavy fragrances like Dior's Sauvage or Armani's Si. You don't wear this one expecting compliments. You wear this to make a statement.

Perfumer Prin Lomros did a masterful work on this juice offering us the best coffee fragrance on the market that I got my nose on thus far.

Coffee and cake with the stylish gentleman
My husband recently purchased a new coffee maker for our office. I don't drink coffee myself, but that wonderful smell when the machine grinds the beans and then freshly brews the hot drink is just wonderful! I never thought I would like a coffee scent again, but Prin Lomros proved me wrong with SM Café. Because this perfume is very close to real coffee scent and is also very sensual.

Two components, no, better three, come together in SM Café, which I like insanely well. We have on the one hand the roasting aromas, on the other hand the aura of a noble men's fragrance and last but not least something gourmand. So a bit like coffee and cake with a wonderful, fine smelling gentleman by my side. What more could you want to brighten up your everyday office life?

I do not think of SM games with this fragrance, with the name I would have expected something more in the direction of the creations of Francesca Bianchi. But what Prin Lomros offers here, goes in a completely different direction. No Christian Grey in sweaty leather garb, but rather a leather like you'd find in fragrances like Tom Ford's White Suede (suede) or Acqua di Parma's Colonia Leather (leather jacket). This is pleasant, this is stylish, well-groomed and elegant and not at all dirty. That's how I like a man to smell. In addition, a few sweet, seductive gourmand notes. The gentleman serves up sweet-amorous. I can also detect his tobacco pipe with cherry aroma. Definitely tobacco here with the cherry note and no sweets or the like, because usually I find cherry in the fragrance rather unattractive. Here, on the other hand, is very discreet and absolutely successful implemented.

But, in this cafe I feel good, even if I only sniff the coffee and do not drink it. Makes me just too jittery. Had the fragrance sample too gladly my better half untergejubelt, because even wear I do not like. Find him rather masculine. Unfortunately, he sniffs out too much gourmandiges and has refused. Well, you can not have everything.

Very dear thanks to PallasCC and Caligari for the test opportunity.

Ah, Amsterdam
It was warm and loud in the streets, you strolled through the alleys, away from the jostling tourists. The smell of cannabis and the noise along the canals gave you a headache and so your way led you almost like a flight into the narrow streets, where it was virtually non-existent. You felt like going to a coffee shop where coffee was really the main thing. Smiling tiredly you shake your head. Ah, Amsterdam. A city so different, you have to love it. But it's also exhausting.
Your eyes fall on a wood-clad facade, with the squiggly inscription "SM Café", though you don't bother with the letters "SM" - probably the owner's initials. (You naive retard)
You step over the threshold, and a darkened room opens before you, also paneled with fine wood from the inside. Reassured, you realise that cigars are probably only smoked here now and then.
The armchairs standing around the small tables, as well as the bar stools, are leather-covered, polished smooth by decades of butts sliding over them. You decide to sit at the counter, behind which there is a certain amount of disorder. Crumbs of ground coffee litter the corners, the scent of the oily greasy fine dust found in grinders that are often used and rarely cleaned lingering in the air. The door from the next room flies open, and a barrista frantically adjusts his crooked tie, wiping sweat from his brow as he runs, his collar deftly concealing a welt on his neck. He smells of lavender. You stare at him with raised eyebrows as he prepares your espresso doppio, admittedly expertly. Cherry. You didn't hear the dominatrix coming, who suddenly stands next to you, smiling wickedly. Her leather costume stretches skin-tight over your elegant body, leaving your most intimate parts exposed. As you gasp for air, her tongue is already shoving a Mon Chéri into your mouth, while her claws dig under your shirt into your back. The firm grip on your thigh blocks your escape attempt and presses you firmly onto the barstool. "Please! I just want to drink my coffee!" you yip into the air of leather, cherry, and roasted aromas.
"Really? We rarely have anything like that here!" smirks the lady in leather. She floats back into the next room and with her, that disreputable cherry. The barrista serves you your espresso and winks at you. "Ah, Tom, you're here again!" He turns to his next customer. Standing in the doorway is Tom Ford, who is clearly caught by my gaze. After a moment's thought, he joins you at the bar, nervously sliding around on his stool and ordering his token coffee (as if he's only here to drink coffee). Wearing Tuscan Leather, he seems to have regained his self-assurance after a few minutes and casually makes his way to the next room, his scent taking him with him, thank goodness.

You sit in silence at the bar, enjoying your espresso. The barrista, who seems to have been watching you the whole time, comes over, leans forward, and only now do you notice the smell of patchouli. His carotid artery pulses beneath his collar.
"Are you sure? " he murmurs to you.
"Quite sure." You reply. Inwardly, you have to laugh.
Ah, Amsterdam.

Coffee with Prin's DNA
Opens up with a photorealistic roasted coffee mixed with the earthiness of patchouli and leather up top. The leather is smells quite vintage and warm to me. That leather is like when you enter those classic barber shows with old leather chairs or in some vintage hotel lobbies. Something that really compliments the fragrance and adds a lot of depth & character to the scent.

⭕️ Along with that there are sweet & boozy nuances of cacao along with cherry note and it brings such a beautiful balance to the fragrance. The coffee in the fragrance feels damp with kind a tincture nuance. I do get rose in the mid but fades away quite fast. What stays is the creamy and silky beeswax.

The dry down is sweet and woody to my nose more like vanilla and tonka bean. Quite addictive and comforting.

Overall, if you like coffee, id definitely recommend you to sample it.

The most realistic black coffee on the market
Easily the most realistic and long lasting black coffee scent I have ever come across in my fragrance journey so far, SM Café is beautiful debauchery. Typically when looking at coffee scents a lot of people look more so for a sweeter coffee, like a latte or cappuccino, typical café drinks. But when growing up, my dad was, and still is to this day, a huge drinker of pure black coffee. The experience of growing up with that has definitely had an effect on what I look for in coffee in fragrances, as I don’t have the same kind of attachment to sweeter coffees that others do. SM Café scratches the dark coffee itch, but this fragrance is also more than just its amazing coffee note. There’s also the really heavy leather note to complete the SM part of SM Café, and later on in the fragrance some fruits, amber, and woods join the fray in what I’m assuming is to be symbolic of finally being tempted into eating the forbidden fruit after entering the café. A wonderful dark and sensual experience the entire way through. It gets my recommendation, but remember to try before buying.

Mon Chéri meets Espresso
Who doesn't know it, the scent when you open a pack of Mon Chéri and one of these chocolate cherry liqueur scents rises into your nose. SM Café meets this fragrance which I know since my childhood very well. She mixes herself with a strong espresso note, which immediately stimulates my appetite. So be careful, if you're hungry, don't spray on it.

It is a fascinating fragrance that pleasantly caresses you and brings with it a good presence and perception. Over Mon Chéri's time with espresso liqueur, it develops into a more sexual scent, since after about an hour the rose slowly comes through, which I rather perceive as very dark jasmine. The reaction of my girlfriend at the first contact with SM Café was very positive. She loves the animal leather notes, which I hardly notice in the combination with the dark coffee and chocolate notes and the hint of wicked rose (jasmine).

I will continue to test the fragrance over the next few weeks as I believe it is perfect for the colder season and will continue to add it if necessary. The blind purchase has already paid off for me

My Cup of Coffee
SM Café - Marquis de Sade opens his own coffee shop. Somehow a funny and also exciting idea, which Prin pursued here. Actually, the fragrance should have been launched with Les Mauvais Garcons and Sangre Dulce. But Prin was looking for a vintage leather note that would produce exactly the image he wanted. It is this passion for details, which makes Prin's fragrances so special for me. So SM Café was launched about a month later. And the waiting was more than worth it.

SM Café burst right from the start with its main theme: coffee. It is a deep black and aromatic vibe. At the same time, the patchouli, as the second important protagonist, contributes to a slightly earthy note. This, mixed with the coffee, gives the impression of moist coffee grounds. The third fragrance component is the already mentioned vintage leather note. This one enters the stage slightly boozy (Benzoe) and with some fruitiness (cherry & rose). The whole time, subliminal, a rather pleasantly playful theme resonates, which is close to hay and skin notes.

The leather is warm and soft. I rather see dark brown, high leather armchairs in the café, tanned by the many guests sitting in them, than a (SM) whip. And it complements the fragrance in an absolutely harmonious and skilful way. So the long search for the right leather note was more than worth it.

Exactly this twist of skin and leather notes sets SM-Café apart from a pure coffee scent.

In the course of hours, discreet chords of tobacco and also some wood are added. But the fragrance stands by its main theme and heart of patchouli, amber and coffee. After more than 8 hours my visit ends in the Café of the Marquis, which is actually nice guy.

And makes a hell of a good coffee. :)

The fragrance is definitely highly recommended for fans of Drakkar Noir and Bond No. 9 - New Harlem. But also for anyone who is looking for a coffee scent with a certain twist.

PS: Prin was so nice to sent the scent before his vacation, so I got the chance to review and introduce it to the community. Thank you, dear friend!

A slightly fruity, yet warm and resinous oriental-leathery Fall fragrance, with a pronounced smoky spicy-earthy opening. Male-oriented.
